Counselling

To seek assistance when you know you need it is an act of courage. It is a sign of strength to decide to face what you fear and turn problems into opportunities. Counselling enables you to explore your emotions, beliefs, relationships, and circumstances. As a society, we are typically uncomfortable with “negative” feelings. The reality is that emotions just are.  They exist.  We all have them.  Problems arise when we assign values of good or bad, positive or negative to them. 

To promote inner empathy, I use the somatic therapy of Focusing, pioneered by Eugene Gendlin. Focusing accesses the felt senses to discover more than is known intellectually and to break through stuck or habitual patterns of experiencing. Focusing is exceptionally helpful to contact and regulate emotions and cultivate self-awareness from a place of safety.

Trauma and PTSD

I am experienced with assisting in the interventions of Trauma and PTSD. I provide counselling to victims of crime through the Crime Victim Assistance Program. I also provide Critical Incident Stress Debriefs for Morneau Shepell.

Hypnodontics

Many people avoid going to the dentist due to anxiety. Did you know that by using Self-Hypnosis, you can quickly drift off in the dental chair and relax in your favorite vacation spot? You might even see the waves at the beach or hear the birds in the forest as you read these very words.

Hypnosis for dental care, also known as Hypnodontics, can help with:

If you would like to be in charge of how you respond to dental procedures, I can help. With Hypnodontics you can maintain dental health without distress!

Pain Management

Certified by ARCH, I am a Pain Management Therapist. If you have chronic pain, or if you need to better manage pain or anxiety for palliative care or recovery from surgery or medical procedures, Hypnosis may benefit you. It is proven to be effective for pain relief and produces no negative side-effects. Hypnosis can also be used to promote healing and the efficacy of medications. For more information, see pain relief.

Past Life Regression

I am a Past Life Regression Specialist, certified by Mary Lee LaBay. Age Regression and Past Life Regression are hypnotic techniques that I use when appropriate and upon request. These techniques can allow the subconscious mind to discover and release the cause of a problem. The imagination is the language of the subconscious, and it can be used to journey through space and time.

With hypnosis, you can also journey into the future to imagine the life you prefer. This does not mean that by imagining you are indulging in unrealistic fantasy or hallucinating. The imagination is a resource of the inner mind. It allows us to form images and symbols that emerge from memory, experience, knowledge, intuition, and insight. This resource has been used to create art, music, literature, and make scientific discoveries and technological inventions.
