Victoria Maria Moyer

Facilitating Creative Journeys

I’m Victoria.

For now, this page is where I house various bits and pieces of things I do or have done.

Some of my playwriting projects may be found here.

I have frequently worked as an arts educator/facilitator, providing a space for young people as well as adults to explore intersections between presence, nature, movement, language, performance, relationship, and creativity.

I’m certified as a hypnotherapist and, given that the subconscious is essentially the body, I weave into this practice a focus on somatic unfolding processes. My current views of healing are aligned with process-oriented psychology, polyvagal theory, and a mind-body-ecology/space/landscape framework.

Butoh has been a foundational practice and inspiration for me, though I would equally say that practices such as Contemplative Dance and deepening relationship with non-human life informs my movement approach. If you are local to Philadelphia, PA and have a desire to explore Butoh-inspired movement approaches, see flier here and e-mail to get connected.

In the past year or two I’ve started learning to play harp; I sometimes post improvisational songs here.

Another branch of my work in the world focuses on building symbiotic relationships with nature—the Earth’s biosphere and beyond. So far this takes the shape of foraging, gardening, and integrating arts/nature classes. I am eager to learn more and go deeper.


…“to put it another way
I would give all metaphors

in return for one word
drawn out of my breast like a rib
for one word
contained within the boundaries
of my skin
but apparently this is not possible
and just to say—I love

I run around like mad
picking up handfuls of birds
and my tenderness
which after all is not made of water
asks the water for a face…”
(Zbigniew Herbert)

WILL EMBODIED HYPNOTHERAPY WORK FOR ME? &What to expect from a session

Sometimes even when you are consciously trying to create positive change in your life, there are unconscious motivations or blocks that seem to inexplicably hold you back.

Hypnotherapy can help you access what’s going on in all realms of conscious and unconscious experience, remove those limiting blocks, and manifest the integration and change that you desire.

The unconscious=the body. This is why in our session, we'll work directly with the body. Often people imagine that in a hypnosis session they will lie back in a chair and become very, very sleepy...


But instead, here you will find connection to the earth, rootedness. You might be seated for some of the session, pleasantly relaxed and listening to my voice, but at other times will be asked to move, to key into the body in that way.  You might discover new ways of moving through different levels of trance. You might learn more about your body as a conduit. You might notice how when your thoughts change, your body changes, and when your body changes, your thoughts change. Your voice. Your spirit. We're going to work with all of it, through breath, visualization, hypnosis, movement. Are you intrigued? 

We will talk, too, at some points, like in traditional therapy. But we might make other sounds. 

I might have instruments, namely my harp or sansula, in the room to explore how sound might affect bodymindspirit processes.

Reiki energy work can be included upon request. 

No two sessions could be the same because no two people are the same. 


Embodied Hypnotherapy might be for you if you'd like to address such things as anxiety, depression, habit cessation, freedom from phobias, pain management, big life transitions, grief, existential crises, relationships...

Embodied Hypnotherapy might be for you if you'd like to call into your life more creativity, trust, breath, relaxation, change, support, space, motivation, intuition, inspiration, awareness, joy, spontaneity...


In addition to, or as an alternative, to in-person work, there are two options. 

1. Skype or Google Hangouts Session (Very similar to what would happen in a live session.) 

2. Personalized Recording: after an initial phone call, I will create a personalized 30-minute hypnosis recording for you, using my voice as well as musical instruments to create a unique guided healing trance suited to your desires and intentions. The recording will be crafted so that you can listen to it time and time again, finding new healing resources each time you listen. 


In-Person or Skype:

Sliding scale:  $35-$65 for 1-hour session or $50-$90 per 1 hour and 30 minutes. Please assess your ability to pay as honestly as possible. 

Follow-up sessions recommended, but this is completely up to you.  


$25 for a 30-minute personalized recording (includes pre-creation phone call). 

Please e-mail me at to find out if this work would be a good fit for you, or to inquire about online or recording options. From there, we'll schedule a phone call to discuss your specific goals and life situations. 

Come you lost Atoms to your Centre draw;

And be the Eternal Mirror that you saw.
