A hypnotherapist or hypnotist is not a licensed physician or psychologist and hypnotherapy services are not licensed by the province of BC. Services are non diagnostic and do not include the practice of medicine, neither should they be considered as a substitute for licensed medical or psychological services.
Hypnosis works with the power of the subconscious mind to change habits and behaviors. The subconscious mind is considered to be the source or root of many of our behaviors, emotions, attitudes and motivations.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnotherapy is an effective therapy for a whole variety of issues – and is not to be confused with such things as stage hypnosis. As a trained clinical hypnotherapist, I will work with you to enhance your well-being.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to heal what is blocking you at the root of the issue, so that you are free to enjoy an amazing and successful life.
Hypnosis is not sleep. During a session you will be relaxed into a safe hypnotic state that is a sleep of the nervous system that allows a two-way conversation between me and your subconscious mind: the part of you that will be holding onto pain or directing behaviours you no longer want to run your life. You will be fully aware of this conversation and you will be empowered when you understand the origin or any issue or behavior and further empowered when I free you from it.
What happens during a session?
Your First Session
The session will typically last 4 to 5 hours.
The first part will be a totally confidential discussion of what is troubling you and how it is making you feel or behave.
I will then demonstrate, if you have not been hypnotized before, what the simple process involves and then when you are relaxed and ready I will hypnotise you. During this regression state the conversation will take place with your subconscious mind so that we can find the root cause of your issue. Then I will help you clear the root cause.
In the last part of the hypnosis session we will create an empowering recording specific to you. This part will be recorded for you, preferably on your phone, and then you will have it to listen to for 21 days or longer.
Why? Because it has been proven that to truly break and rewire a behaviour or thought process you need to repeat the new and positive beliefs for 21 days. It may not take that long for you. Many people leave the session with such a deep understanding of the underlying cause of their former issue and such a sense of lightness or relief that the cure is effective from that moment onwards. For others the change is more gradual and for some it is essentially retrospective. It is only some weeks later that you find that an old habit or behavior is no longer part of who you are or what you do.
And then we will spend a little time discussing the session and the next best steps.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of sessions depends on your unique situation and what you’d like to achieve. Typically, we work on one issue per session. If you have multiple issues, then you would need to book additional sessions. Major issues may also require additional sessions. Often people come for 1 to 3 sessions. Some clients also book short sessions to get guidance and assistance if an event or issue challenges them.
I also offer an intensive 6 months coaching program for those who want to change their life completely or who are setting out to achieve a specific goal that requires focus and assistance.
