Jonathan is amazing. An urban miracle worker.
Anyone on a journey of personal growth knows moments of darkness in the form of loneliness and incomplete understanding. Jonathan is a light that guides and illuminates those moments of darkness, his guidance both accelerates the process and offers comfort along the way. His skillful questions and deep knowledge have helped me acquire insights that empower me to make choices in alignment with my purpose.
My on-going work with Jonathan has been empowering – I have deepened into myself in ways I have never imagined possible. I have also become more fully embodied and I feel so much more connected to my masculine essence.
I just want to thank you for our session yesterday. I have been to many traditional therapists in my life, and the way that you engage me and help to see things from a place of growth and empowerment is so incredibly meaningful to me. This work has such impact, and I am so grateful for the tools that you are giving me. You are so talented and i am so blessed to have you in my life
My first session with Jonathan came at what I didn’t even know would be a turning point in my life. He has given me the tools to start living my best life and the encouragement to keep working at it every day. I have never felt more alive, empowered, strong, confident and hopeful as I have felt since seeing Jonathan.
He has made me see the universe and my place in an entirely new way. I always leave our sessions feeling stronger than I did before I walked in. Life changing! I am forever thankful!
Jonathan offers a grounded, straight forward, realistic perspective without any sugarcoating or BS and gets to the core of what really matters compassionately, gently and thoughtfully. He is exceptional at identifying personal blocks and underlying issues, bringing them to the light of awareness while helping you cultivate the beauty that is already within.
It’s a learned skill to be kind to yourself and Jonathan has been there every step of the way.
In looking up the word “therapy”, I was fascinated by the synonyms: treatment, remedy, cure… and those are just a few words I would use to describe Jonathan and the amazing work he does as a spiritual counselor.
He is a person that will help you bounce ideas off of. Point you in the right direction, not tell you what to do… But guide you towards the right path to being your true authentic self. Is the work easy? No it’s not. always. But the best things in life require work, time and patience. And if we were all truly honest with ourselves, we are worth that time commitment Thankfully I learned this working with Jonathan.
Often times when people feel like they are at their lowest, the phrase “I can’t see the forest through the trees” comes up. The best way to describe Jonathan is…….He is the forest.
Seeing Jonathan has proven to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Jonathan has been a catalyst for finally living in truth and seeing everything from a higher perspective. Before I met him, I really believed I was hopeless. Each session has been changing that belief into a distant memory. He is rapidly changing my life, and he can change yours too.
Since I started working with Jonathan, I’ve experienced healing that I didn’t believe was possible for me. I’ve also found courage and love that I never, ever believed was inside of me. Words cannot describe how grateful I am–I would not be here without Jonathan’s compassion, guidance and wisdom.
I feel blessed to call Jonathan my healer and teacher. He’s truly one of the most brilliant people I’ve ever met and he is so passionate about what he teaches. There is so much knowledge, empathy and truth behind everything he says, which is why his methods WORK.
I promise, Jonathan will help you get back in touch with who you truly are…and live in alignment with your purpose.
Before meeting Jonathan, I had been in traditional talk therapy for 6 years to work on my anxiety and depression. I never really felt much healing. I was always just keeping my head above water. Then a personal trauma pushed me to an unprecedented breaking point, and I took a recommendation from a friend and booked a shamanic healing with Jonathan.
I was skeptical but also desperate, and thus willing to try this thing that I was honestly somewhat afraid of, (“What is a shaman and what is he going to do to me???” was my inner monologue). But since that day, my life has truly been transformed. For someone with only a Western psycho-analytical history of therapy, Jonathan provided a warm and inviting introduction to the world of holistic healing. He makes it easy! He is a down-to-earth New Yorker with a very special, spiritual gift. You feel an immediate sense of relationship with zero sense of status.
Personally, the key to my healing was removing the language of “sick” or having something “wrong” with me. Jonathan approaches your struggles from a spiritual point of view, showing you that you are NOT broken, but simply need to find and reclaim the parts of you that have been lost. He makes your pain feel so much simpler and natural. He makes you feel normal again.
I honestly wish for everyone the type of healing experience I’ve had with Jonathan. If you have struggled in any way, and can’t seem to find a way out of it, this is the thing to try. New York City is a beast. We are packed on top of each other, slaves to appointments and deadlines, and lucky if we see a tree sometime this week. Let Jonathan guide you back to a way of living and processing that is somewhere deep within you already. Get back in touch with your spirit. It feels great!
“Working as a Psychiatric Registered Nurse, I was hesitant – to say the least – to begin working with Jonathan. I had spent 15 years myself in traditional therapy for depression, anxiety, and ADD; and, at the time, “spiritual counseling” sounded incredibly foreign and intimidating. I was skeptical. However, at the urging of a close friend, I decided to give it a shot.
Since that first session, I cannot overemphasize the degree to which working with Jonathan has reawakened my heart and my spirit. I honestly cannot imagine living my life without the consciousness and perspective he has guided me toward. If you have ever felt lost, spiritually bankrupt, or as though something is “missing”, trust there is always a way back “home” to yourself.
Jonathan possesses a very rare and incredible gift. He is as relatable as he is inspiring and his candidness has made all the difference. I never experienced the sensation of feeling truly “seen”, but Jonathan forever changed that. Healing is a beautiful, sometimes frightening, but – ultimately – incomprehensibly rewarding process. And, it’s a journey I am still navigating – gratefully with Jonathan!”
Shortly after being laid off for the second time in as many years, I was referred to Jonathan for a session and spiritual healing. I went into my appointment unsure of what to expect, but I can say that it was definitely the first step in a journey that has helped me be more calm, expressive and grounded. Jonathan offered no nonsense practical advice. More than that he heard what I wasn’t saying and allowed me to tap into those emotions. This was something I needed to do desperately. He started me on a path toward grounding and actualization. I found my results so rewarding that I have introduced several friends to him all with the same result. I cannot thank him enough for the change he has opened up in my life.
I’ve seen traditional therapists over the years, but never found one that seemed to really understand my issues, challenges and goals. After meeting Jonathan for the first time, he had an intuitive understanding of my root issues that was truly remarkable. Over the months we’ve been working together since, he continues to help me become the best version of myself possible. My experience working with him has been the most life changing contribution to my health and well-being as getting sober several years ago. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Jonathan has great power and skill in the art of healing. He seems to have tirelessly dedicated himself to discovering and learning not only what it means to be human, but how to guide each of us to move closer to our greatest potential. He continually inspires me. Wise, loving and so knowledgeable. He can help. Promise.
Jonathan is a gift!
It’s not only his hands-on energy work that heals. One of his biggest gifts to me was liberating me from the shame of my life-story. In his presence, I was able to talk about my traumas without omitting anything for fear of being judged as “too wounded” or “weak.” Instead, what was reflected for me to take in was the heroism and value of my life experiences.
What the energy session did was give me the power to ground myself and give myself real-world joy in every day life. This is exactly what I need to help splintered parts of my psyche/soul come home and join me again. It gives them incentive to re-connect with my body and give them their rights back — the right to play and to be safe.
After our work together, I experienced the world in a different way. I had three sessions with Jonathan – Chakra Balancing, Shamanic Healing and Breathwork. All of them have helped me re-ignite my passion, re-connect with my body, and re-align with my purpose.
I just wanted to thank you for yesterday’s session. It was a profoundly positive experience for me, and you are incredible at what you do.
Best & thanks,
My first meeting with Jonathan was a shamanic healing session for physical, emotional, and spiritual pain I’d been dealing with for many years.
Within the first twenty minutes of our conversation, Jonathan was able to identify the root of every single one of my problems. He immediately saw and understood me. The healing session I had that day was calming, beautiful, and powerful. In just a few hours, Jonathan was able to relieve me from wounds I had struggled with for twenty years.
Right away I could sense a weight lifting from me and I felt like my eyes were truly open for the first time. I walked out the door that day finally able to mend strained relationships, live without being constantly ruled by my past hurts and fears, and accept my authentic self.
Since then, I’ve met with Jonathan every other week for counseling. It’s hard to say what has been more helpful: Jonathan’s profound gifts as an energy healer or his compassionate and intelligent spiritual counsel. Jonathan is extremely intuitive and working with him has boosted my own intuition, leading to a more present, fulfilling, connected existence.
My health, relationships, career, and creativity have all improved in the time that I’ve worked with Jonathan. If I walk in feeling terrible, I walk out feeling great; if I walk in feeling good, I walk out feeling unstoppable. I would (and frequently do) recommend Jonathan to anyone who is ready to take control of their life, fully deal with their issues, and be happier than they ever thought possible.
Spiritual Counseling with Jonathan has been a beginning of a great spiritual journey for me. His work truly motivates you and makes a difference in your everyday life. The way he makes you feel is very inspiring and grounded, I have encouraged so many people in my life to meet him. We are always in search and wondering about ourselves and the world, so finding somebody who can be such an incredible mentor has been a great blessing.
When I first went to see Jonathan I wasn’t sure what to expect so I decided not to expect anything, to be open and see whether the experience was resonant with my needs. In addition to being an excellent listener and intuitive counselor, the energy healing he performed was an enlivening experience. I left feeling redeemed of my personal power and my only regret was that I did not return to see him again sooner. Regardless of whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or an atheist, if you’re reading these reviews chances are you will benefit from Jonathan’s guidance. I’m grateful to have found someone who can so effortlessly lift the fog of my own inner trappings and point me back in the right direction.
What I experienced in working with Jonathan has been one of the biggest blessings in my life, a completely life-altering experience. He brought all these subconscious things to the surface. This has enabled me to grow in countless ways. I have done traditional therapy in the past and read countless books. I have an amazing network of friends and support, but this is different. You discover what’s already lying deep inside you. Jonathan helps you follow your own guidance, your own light; and he helps you find your true self. To say he is a gift and has a gift is an understatement. My spiritual and emotional growth over the past year working with him have been exponential.
As I was searching on the internet for a spiritual counselor, I came across Jonathan’s website. I must admit I was a little skeptical and did not really know what to expect. Boy am I happy I had the courage to actually go to my first session with Jonathan. He truly is an energetic light. He has helped me deprogram myself from my own set of limitations and fears. He has introduced a new way of thinking and looking at things, but most all he has sparked a light inside of me to go on this spiritual journey to better myself.
Additionally, the reiki work done was something special to say the least. The very first session of reiki, I connected with my mother who past away 13 years ago. Anytime that we have done energy work I feel open, by that I mean more in-tune with myself. Anyone who is seriously looking to better themselves and put in the work, I would recommend to go see Jonathan. He is not only my healer/counselor/friend but also just a great spark of light. Thank you Jonathan for this light that you have awoken inside of me.
I studied both Reiki 1 and 2 with Jonathan and see him for Spiritual Counseling. The knowledge I have gained changed my perception of what we are capable of offering to others energetically. Through the trainings, I also developed a very open, comfortable and supportive relationship with Jonathan. This brought me back to see him privately. In the sacred space that he creates, I was able to shift out of my seat as a student and into a place where I could be vulnerable and totally honest with him and myself. When you are with a healer who makes you feel that safe and protected, you become open and receptive to true healing. Words can’t describe how thankful I am that he is offering this type of work. His vibe is potent and his gifts are powerful. Thank you!
I recently had the pleasure of completing Reiki 1 training under the guidance of Jonathan. His credentials and his approachable attitude attracted me to him and made me feel I would be in knowledgeable and caring hands, which was important to me. The weekend training was an amazing experience! Jonathan has a gift for bringing overwhelming peaceful and loving energy into a space. He brought that to the training, which made such a difference. Jonathan is clearly a devoted healer and his teaching is grounded and down to earth, allowing students like me to feel open, safe, and happy throughout the process, which I think is essential to any training process. He shared valuable knowledge and practical advice, and created a place where questions and thoughts were revered and respected. If you are interested in Reiki, I highly recommend Jonathan as your teacher! He gave me a wonderful gift of Reiki that I’m excited to share with many throughout my life.
Jonathan’s approach is inspiring, healing and powerful. He is committed, passionate and dedicated to serving for the highest good for people and his energy is contagious. The learning and healing I recieved has altered the direction of my own work in powerful ways. Jonathan is a great teacher and has a wonderful presence and connection to healing. Much love and light emanates from his Being.
When I originally met Jonathan I was stuck-physically, emotionally and creatively. I shared my concerns with Jonathan and was able to meet with him a few times for energy work when I visited the city. Working with Jonathan was immensely helpful. Jonathan spent time assessing the origins of my issues and then proceeded with energy work and healing specific to my needs. He is a compassionate, insightful, skilled and thorough practitioner to whom I am immensely grateful. I felt some tangible physical and emotional shifts quickly, but the progress continued to build long after my work with him. I am more open, expressive, body-centered, grounded, less fearful and brimming with creativity. I attribute this to the energy work with Jonathan. I plan to continue work to with him when I am in the city. His work is that profound. I recommend him highly to anyone feeling stuck, stilted, or closed as I was. Do not hesitate to call upon this compassionate and gifted practitioner. I feel blessed to have worked with him.
Jonathan Hammond is a rare jewel in a world replete with an endless wealth of bodywork specialists and spiritual healers. His ability to compose an effective approach with genuine success for each client is hardly accidental. For Jonathan possesses considerable training and real experience in a variety of modalities, all balanced by a finely-tuned intuitive sense. In my very first session with him, he assessed my concerns and goals with great sensitivity and began the process of achieving them with nearly immediately observable results. I could not recommend Jonathan more highly as a master healer of the body, heart, and spirit.
From day one in my work with him, Jonathan was generous & respectful of his gift. To live on a daily basis and be able to observe a person dedicating himself to the complexities of healing in our troubled present is unique… you observe the healer healing himself and then offering it to the world around him. That is what Jonathan is doing. I feel blessed if you invite him into your own personal healing journey.
After being drawn to his website for many years I finally decided to give him a try, and I was surprised by Jonathan’s work. When it comes to the energetic healing, you have a very strong healer with the highest intention here. There is no interference or agenda, just pure healing. I felt supported and encouraged in ways I have rarely experienced, whether in a peaceful ‘place’ or facing myself squarely with some tough love. He manages to bring forth a strong, clear healing, with his feet planted firmly on the ground. Much is happening during the session, and it took a bit of time after our session for integration, because this work takes place on many levels.
