Hypnosis is a trans-like state during which you experience heightened focus and concentration while remaining in constant control of your behaviour, as you continue to be guided by your own deeply ingrained set of values.  While in this deeply relaxed state, the analytical ("Yes, I know, but...") part of your brain takes a break while I work with the subconscious belief systems that are keeping you stuck in undesirable, unhealthy patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing. 

Why Hypnosis?

I know from personal experience, as well as from a client perspective, that hypnosis can be an effective method for treating symptoms of stress, anxiety and compulsive behaviours.

As a clinician, I use hypnosis as a complementary treatment when working with clients who struggle with : 

  • Eating disorders/weight loss motivation
  • Behavioural changes such as smoking cessation, obsessive compulsive behaviours
  • Various anxieties : phobias, performance anxieties, life transitions, post-traumatic stress
  • Pain control


My objective when working with hypnosis in conjunction with psychotherapy, is always to get you to challenge faulty and limiting belief systems that hold you back from achieving your goals.  When conducted by a trained therapist or certified health care professional, hypnosis can be an effective treatment tool.  

Since hypnosis is not a regulated practice in Ontario, I recommend that all of my clients exercise due diligence when considering the use of hypnosis as a complementary and/or alternative medical treatment option.
