Through hypnosis, I am able to help clients overcome lifelong fears and phobias, replace bad habits with healthy choices, manage chronic pain, discover their true passions and recharge their personal motivations. Hypnotherapy works both on its own, and alongside any medical treatment you may be receiving. It is drug free, dogma free and pain free. It is neither magical nor mystical. It is just a very effective method of harnessing the extraordinary power of your own mind, with which I have already helped hundreds of people with a wide variety of issues …

Wikipedia says “Hypnotherapy is often applied in order to modify a subject’s behavior, emotional content, and attitudes, as well as a wide range of conditions including dysfunctional habits, anxiety, stress-related illness, pain management, and personal development.”

I just say, “Hypnotherapy is a simple, relaxing way to make your life work better, directly addressing the areas where you wish to make a change.”

As a Certified Hypnotherapist with a Psychology degree from McMaster University, I employ a traditional approach to hypnotherapy, with cognitive/behavioural modification. There are no flashing lights or fancy machines, and you will not end up “clucking like a chicken”. Your positive results are achieved through therapeutic relaxation and direct suggestion, with your active participation in the process. I like the phrase “All hypnosis is self-hypnosis”. We determine together the suggestions that will best serve you, and then create an environment in which you can internalize these suggestions powerfully and permanently.

The number of sessions required to effect the desired change can range from one to several, and I will also be training you in self-hypnosis techniques so you can further the work on your own. There is a set fee for a first session, a reduced rate for subsequent sessions, and “packages” available for certain objectives (such as smoking cessation and weight loss).

So, whether you want to quit smoking, increase your energy and productivity, change your life entirely, or just tune up one area, please accept this invitation to contact me for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation to discuss how hypnotherapy could benefit you.

Sessions are conducted at my private clinic in Haliburton, Ontario. I can also travel to you, by special arrangement, for unique circumstances.
