Me_Dorrigo NP_small  Louise A. Shilton, B.Sc., Ph.D.


I am a healing and transformation therapist who specialises in using the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) developed by Dolores Cannon. QHHT is based on a past life regression hypnosis technique and incorporates past life recall experiences for healing benefits. (Please have a look at my QHHT page or contact me to see whether Life & Soul Healing & Transformation Therapy is for you.)

I am also trained scientist. My first career focused on wildlife ecology and conservation management, wilderness protection, and science publishing.

I was working as a research scientist with a major scientific organisation in Australia when I first had some profound and otherworldly experiences that clearly indicated the very real existence—as well as the eternal and immortal nature—of the soul. However, I butted up against layers of my own resistance and ongoing skepticism for several years before I fully embraced a framework for understanding that what we generally call "life" is just a human experience for the growth and evolution of our soul—our soul being the true essence of who we are.

I write more about my own journey of awakening, healing, and transformation in my blogs. But I want you to know that I was a skeptic—a skeptic with an open mind, but still a skeptic—well into my 30s, a decade ago.

Looking back from where I am now, I laugh at the amount of resistance I had to what I was being shown to me by the Universe—my resistance to adopting the most obvious explanation for a variety of profound experiences. Naturally autonomous and needing to be financially independent and emotionally self-reliant from an early age, I also resisted surrendering to trusting the Universe to support me, rather than having to fight for my survival.

I had always been a highly motivated and passionate person who thrived on overcoming adversity. But we all have a breaking point. After a series of life traumas, including the loss of loved ones and a range of other major challenges, my physical and emotional health suffered, and in 2008 I entered into my “dark night of the soul”. At my lowest point I remember a voice inside saying “This is not who I am. I am a positive person. I am a passionate person. I love life.” This kernel of self-awareness from my soul reminded me that I was so much more than my current circumstances and saved my life. I started to claw my way out of the abyss.

For a few years before this, and during this time of personal struggle, an inner knowingness escalated in volume telling me that I was to work in a counselling and healing capacity with people. The phrase that kept repeating over and over told me that I was to “heal people’s hearts”. This was my true calling.

As I learned to surrender to the guidance of the Universe, I began a journey of self-healing—I had to heal my own heart and soul in order to be able to hold the space to support and guide others on their healing journeys.

Clarity about how I was to work in a healing capacity with others came in late 2010 as I was reading the opening pages of Dr Brian Weiss’ bestseller Many Lives, Many Masters. In a light bulb moment I knew that I was to do past life regression work with people, and that I was to train with Brian. (Which I did two years later, in October 2012.)

I continued learning to surrender to my calling and heal myself physically and emotionally, layer by layer, so that I could be a grounded and centred practitioner for the work that I do now. I am also a channel and conduit for Spirit across the spectrum from passed over loved ones (mediumship) to higher entities such as Ascended Masters.

ABOUT MY BUSINESS—Life & Soul Insights

Life & Soul Insights is the culmination of my life and soul experiences, and is the formalisation of me doing the work with Spirit that I have been consciously doing since 2010, but in reality, it's what I have been doing my whole life—helping other people to learn, to grow, and to heal.

My heartfelt desire is to help people thrive and live life with passion and purpose. My calling is to help people heal their hearts—to heal from pain acquired in this lifetime, as well as pain carried over as soul wounds from past lives. Regardless of our beliefs, we all carry soul wounds to varying degrees, and we are all on a journey of rediscovering the true essence of who we are (our soul) and healing this aspect of ourselves so we can live with an open heart and continue to expand and grow. I believe all of us are on a journey of soul evolution.

It’s my passion to help people overcome grief and loss, rediscover the magnificence of their true being, and understand why they are here—to understand their true life purpose and the lessons they came here to learn. Through my work I can help people to identify, unlock and release any barriers and blocks they may have to following their heart and their true path.

These days I live my life more intuitively, and I have surrendered to trusting the guidance of my spirit guides and Higher Consciousness. While not without my own personal challenges, I walk the path of the work that I do with clients. I love helping people remember and rediscover who they really are and access their inner wisdom—to reach a place of inner wholeness.

  • Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT Levels 1 & 2)—taught in person by QHHT founder Dolores Cannon and her daughter Julia Cannon (USA); Dolores transitioned on 18 October 2014, just five weeks after the Level 2 training course I did with her;
