Ramona Lever is a qualified IADC therapist, practicing in Australia.

Induced After Death Communication (IADC) is a new therapy for grief and trauma.


It has helped thousands of people all over the world come to terms with their grief by allowing them the experience of private communication with their departed loved ones.

It is a unique grief treatment done in 2 x 90-minute sessions. It is aimed on reducing grief over the loss of a loved one, friend, or even someone you didn't know but have been deeply affected by their passing. It can also be for loss of pets.   You must attend both sessions. The first session is 90 minutes and the second session can go from 30 minutes to another 90 minutes. 

IADC® therapy is not appropriate for everyone. A small percentage of people are not appropriate.  The only requirement is that the client is both able and willing to address and access these core emotional issues while in session. We recommend that you do not plan on other activities after the first session. Most people feel rather tired


Dr Allan. L Botkin, was a a clinical psychologist (now retired), who created the therapy while counseling Vietnam veterans in his work at a Chicago area VA hospital.


Dr. Botkin recounts his initial accidental discovery of IADC during a therapy sessions with Sam, a Vietnam vet haunted by the memory of a Vietnamese girl he couldn't save. During the session, quite unexpectedly, Sam saw a vision of the girl's spirit, who told him everything was okay, she was at peace now. This single moment surpassed months/years of therapy, and allowed Sam to reconnect with his family.

Since that amazing discovery in 1995, Dr. Botkin has honed IADC and used it to successfully treat countless patients.

Induced After Death Communication is a revolutionary therapy that will profoundly affect how grief and trauma are understood and treated.

It is based of EMDR and has been adapted to use specifically with people that are suffering from intense Grief for their loved ones, friends, pets and even strangers that have affected them.


Many patients report the same experiences described by people who have had a near-death experience (NDE) or after-death communication (ADC), although we suggest that the experience of feeling a reconnection is the critical activity, without implying the source of the perception.

IADC® therapy offers a method of relieving the prolonged suffering of millions of people. Consistent clinical observations indicate that IADC® therapy heals the deep sadness associated with a friend or loved one’s death, and the results hold up over time.

This promising new approach awaits independent, controlled scientific studies such as those planned by Professor Jan Holden at North Texas University.

The therapy method also provides researchers with a psychological event sufficiently similar to NDE’s and ADC’s to use in understanding the nature of these phenomena and why they so dramatically relieve people’s grief. And while IADC® therapy is unusual and will continue to be controversial until it becomes commonly used, anyone who wishes to verify its efficacy may explore the method at will, just by engaging in a session with a qualified therapist and experiencing an IADC® firsthand.
