I can relate to many of my clients' internal and external conflicts having reconciled similar ones in my own personal and professional therapeutic education and experience.
Beginning or continuing a therapeutic exploration of self-discovery, growth and change can often feel daunting. Finding the right Hypnotherapist, one who is a good match for you and your particular needs may seem to make things even more challenging.
It's my hope that you find on this webpage the information you need to comfortably take your next step towards the relief and wanted changes you seek.
I have maintained a private Psychotherapy practice in Toronto since 1998
Years of working as a psychotherapist and with various somatic, body-mind therapies, all gave me insight, experience and understanding of how clients make lasting changes to beliefs, behaviours and emotional habits that do not serve them well. Once understood, processed and relinquished they can be replaced with new, beneficial thoughts, feelings and actions.
Clinical Hypnotherapy has proven itself to be one of the most relaxing, direct and effective ways of achieving this.
Every Clinical Hypnotherapy session allows you to address your specific concerns.
You can relax, feel in control and process your experience at your own pace.
What is H Y P N O T H E R A P Y ?
Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment modality used in psychotherapy, psychology, medicine and health management.
A growing body of research now validates hypnosis as a highly effective tool for pain reduction, stress, anxiety, and a range of medical issues. It is unfortunate that so many have distorted views of hypnosis. In the therapeutic relationship, unlike in the entertainment industry, clients access a peaceful state of internal focused concentration, which allows for creative insight and higher awareness — this state of focused concentration is not unlike the brain wave state that is achieved in deep meditation. In clinical hypnosis with a qualified practitioner, the client is in COMPLETE CONTROL of the process.
Clinical Hypnotherapy is not what has been popularized by Hollywood. It is not possible for someone to be placed under mind-control and become controlled by a hypnotist. Anything you’ve seen or heard about regarding stage hypnosis is nothing at all like what you’ll experience in a Hypnotherapy session.
Hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react, and modify the messages that the body sends to the mind. - New York Times
You’ll find Clinical Hypnotherapy to be an extremely effective and gentle, healing tool
for desired emotional, cognitive and behavioural change.
We do not fear the unknown. We fear what we think we know about the unknown.
- Teal Swan

The following information is gathered from:
WHY HYPNOSIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SUGGESTION (And What It Is Really All About) by Bill O'Hanlon
Permissive (rather than authoritarian) Evocation (rather than suggestion) assumes that the person already has abilities and it is the task of the hypnotist to draw them forth and help the person use them to resolve problems and move forward.
This difference is grounded in a sense that people have resources and wisdom within and in their social contexts.
This collaborative hypnotic approach, decreases resistance, helps avoid intrusions, cross-cultural mistakes and assumptions, and minimizes the imposition of personal, gender and sexual orientation biases.

Follow your bliss
- Joseph Campbell
Clinical Hypnotherapy can help you with saying yes to your life - and following your bliss
Free 15 minute telephone consultation.
During the consultation I will ask you
questions about your expectations, goals
and previous Hypnotherapy and other therapy experiences.
How often shall I come for a session and how long will I be coming for sessions?
Weekly appointments are common and often most ideal. That being said, every client is different and needs to consider various factors to decide what is best for them: i.e. their personal need and schedules, my availability, their budget, travel time, etc.
