Loyola (Loey) Colebeck provides a gentle, trauma-informed and Daoist approach to therapy, to support your healing process in an organic, humanist way.
Loey has worked with clients to successfully treat mental, emotional and existential states (which affect the body) such as: anxiety and depression, grief and loss, trauma, life transitions, family issues, identity and gender shifts, schizophrenia and mental health diagnoses, ancestral trauma, sensitivity and empaths, adoptees, self-esteem, issues surrounding sexuality. Likewise, Loey has helped clients with a broad range of physical conditions and symptoms through natural and holistic methods. These include skin conditions, breathing conditions, fertility, gynecology, circulatory issues, chronic inflammation, incontinence, and many others.
Loey has been professionally accredited through SEDIBAC (Catalonia Society for the Study and Diffusion of Dr. Bach's Therapy), and is the English translator of Pablo Noriega's book, Bach Flower Essences and Chinese Medicine (Inner Traditions, 2016). Loey is a NCCAOM PDA provider #172473, and lectured at the IV and VI SEDIBAC/SEFLOR conferences in Barcelona, Spain. She has also lectured at universities and for professional groups in the Twin Cities, and taught community classes.
Loey studied clinical flower essence therapy and related coursework in Barcelona, at ISMET (Superior Institute of Traditional Medicine), Anthemon Institute, SEDIBAC (Catalonia Society for the Study and Diffusion of Dr. Bach's Therapy), and Aula Bach. Loey trained in Family Constellations and IOPT (Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy) in Spain and the U.S.. She is also a jade egg practitioner enriched by qigong master Kim Sierra Robinson of The Jade Door, a minister of the Homeopathy Congress, and certified in Reiki. She studied herbal medicine with Adam Seller in San Francisco in 1999, and earned her Bachelor's degree in Spanish and fine art from the University of Wisconsin in 1996.
Loey's life-long passion and training in dance informed workshops she provided to women during nine years in Spain, working through topics related to sensuality, sexuality, trauma, loss, maternity, and feminine identity. She provided indoor and outdoor sessions on the forested grounds of her home, and collaborated with various groups around Spain, helping hundreds of women open the door to their own deep well of embodied wisdom. The "Spanish mountain years" was a period of deep enrichment, research and growth for which she is eternally grateful.
"Loey has an innate capacity to perceive the deepest of human pain and not avert her compassionate gaze. Using her gentle intuition and a keen intelligence, she fearlessly yet compassionately guides her clients toward their highest potential. What a gift she is to those who know her."-Jennifer Rose Holterhaus, homeopath
"I found the time I had with Loey extremely enlightening because while I knew I was having allergy issues, emotional/grief issues, and some digestive issues, I never put them together. My health was a puzzle, and our work helped me put together the pieces."
"Loey is deeply intuitive, knowledgeable and powerful. My go-to woman for flower essences. The healing space she holds allows me to drop deep into myself and allow the natural unfolding to flower. I'm so grateful that she lives here in the [Twin] Cities!"
"I didn't quite know what to expect when I signed up for my family constellation session. I knew I had work to do, but wasn't sure where to start... I instantly felt comfortable in Loey's presence, there was no wrong way to navigate through the constellation. She facilitated in a gentle way, with keen observations which lead me to some deep truths. Thanks to this work, I feel lighter and more sure of my life path. I'm so grateful to have worked with Loey! I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to do the work toward healing, and cleaning up their own path."
"[The material] was very organized. You are a good and skillful teacher. Thank you."
-Megan, BFA, LMT
"Constellation work is an intense experience that needs a very special facilitator to help a client work through whatever is blocking them. Loey is that person. She is warm, compassionate, unbiased and makes her clients feel safe. If you have never done constellation work it is an extremely moving experience and I am very grateful that I found Loey to help me through my journey. Deep gratitude and thankfulness for having such a gifted practitioner with such depth and experience right here in our very own Minneapolis community. A gem to the alternative health community."
"In my journey with treating genital herpes symptoms and the emotional fallout of such a stigmatized and misunderstood STI, I've tried nearly every treatment I could find. In working with Loey and flower essences, I have decreased the frequency of outbreaks [...] Loey crafted a flower essence salve to put on the sores. The first chance I had to use it, I felt immediate relief, forgot my discomfort and healed up in less than 2 days! I hardly noticed the sores thanks to the unique cream that Loey developed for me. I'll continue using it in conjunction with our therapy sessions and flower essences. I feel so grateful for what I've learned and how much I've changed since working with Loey!"
-A.F., massage therapist
"For the past 20 years or so I've been dealing with the fallout of what can only be described as sexual trauma. Because of when and how it happened, I did not realize it was trauma. Nor have I been able to develop an awareness of how this trauma has influenced my life, other than its physical manifestations: dissociation while having sexual intercourse, inability to develop meaningful intimate relationships, inability to hold down long-term employment, a constant need to move, and other symptoms I am only just now becoming aware of [...]
In working with Loey, I have been able to gain freedom from the compulsive energy that was driving so much of my life. She's been able to work with me and listen to what was happening behind my narrative. She has also been able to use a keen eye to pick up on patterns that I was unable to see myself. Her treatment has allowed me to see how much anger and anxiety I have in my life as a result of the trauma and the events subsequent to the trauma. It's as though I can increasingly see the anxious energy and anger coursing through my life. And I know that when I am able to see beyond the anger and anxiety, I will be able to deal with the core issues surrounding the trauma. None of the above loving insight would be available to me had it not been for Loey's flower essence prescriptions [sic]. I am deeply grateful to them and the practitioners of this healing tradition."
"More than a week has passed and the immediate benefits of our Intention/Constellation session are still very present. Thanks again! You are an excellent professional. I admire the way you facilitated the transformation that happened inside me."
"I've noticed major breakthroughs after my session with you, just over a week ago. Your work is transformative in a powerful, yet gentle way. Thank you so much for addressing all the intricacies of my healing process; I now have a more clear vision of how to move forward."
"I recently visited Loey at Adagio clinic, which is a lovely, calming space, and I found myself happy to be there. Loey mixed two formulas for me: one for my cat, who has been using the floor as her litter box, and a second for me in preparation for surgery. I'm delighted to say that Edith, my cat, has only had one misplaced poo since she started her treatment, which is a huge improvement! And I managed the stress of two surgeries in one week with much greater balance than I believe I would have without the formula Loey mixed for me. I left the clinic feeling balanced and nurtured. Thank you, Loey!"
"I wanted to follow up and say thank you again for all the energy you put into teaching such an interesting class today! The morning really offered me so much insight and clarity into my own soul's purpose and a few key remedies I now see are great choices to support me! I thought you did such a good job teaching some very complex material and I could tell that you come from a place of great integrity and knowledge. I feel fortunate to have learned so much from you this morning and I look forward to upcoming classes."
"Dear Loey, Thank you for your enlightening presentation on using Flower Essence and engaging in Flower Essence Therapy. I think all of our eyes were opened to a additional way of looking at healing the body and our sexuality not only by ourselves but by working with a therapist and movement. [...]"
