Ladislav Pavelka
Therapist & Statement Analyst

I deeply believe that every person deserves to be happy and that every person can change their life for the better.


Your subconscious blockages, fears and behavior patterns, which do not allow you to move forward, could be dissolved and changed into positive ones. Your decision to accept my help is usually that first positive step.


As a Certified Hypnotherapist, I am here to help you heal and restore your balance and well-being. I will work with you on all levels of body, mind and spirit as per your needs. ​


As a statement analyst, I'm here to help you communicate with clarity and conviction. I will also help you understand what others are telling you or not telling you. The scientific approach of statement analysis makes it more than an analysis of your written or oral statements.


This technique can help you express your intention with sincerity. It makes your communication more powerful. ​ To help you become a confident and effective speaker, we work and practice together. You will learn to recognize possible discrepancies and deceptions in other people's statements. ​


I am also a Certified Permaculture Designer, Initiated Reiki Practitioner and Healing Coordinator. ​ I will help you in English, French and Czech.
