Rifa is the first hypnotherapist accredited by The Newton Institute (TNI) and the first to practice Life Between Lives (LBL) in Canada. She specializes in regression therapy, Past Life and LBL regressions.
Her first Past Life regression experience as a client was in 1983. For years she felt she carried the heavy weight of burdens as if she had lived someone else’s life. One single session opened the door to a new world, a new passion in life and then a new career. From then Rifa sought education, taking training and workshops locally and throughout the world.
Bachelors degree in Education and in Music from Moscow State Pedagogical University.
