Overcome Your Obstacles with Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that empowers an individual to change behaviours or habits that are causing emotional, mental, or physical suffering. It addresses the unconscious programming in your mind that has been developed throughout your life (and often from childhood) that other methods of therapies do not address.

What is Hypnotherapy and how does it work?

What is unconscious programming?

Approximately 95% of our mental processes occur in our unconscious. Our unconscious is the location that hosts all that we have seen, heard, or felt starting from a very young age. Your unconscious programming affects the decisions and things you do every day. It’s completely natural for this to occur, and without techniques like hypnotherapy it is out of control of your conscious mind.

What is a state of hypnosis?

We all go through a state of hypnosis approximately every hour and a half when our brain goes into a circadian rhythm cycle. You might notice this cycle when you are reading a book or watching a movie becoming focused on only one thing, tuning out other things in your environment. In this state you are relaxed and capable of heightened imagination and suggestion.

This part of your mind never sleeps. It runs your body, processes and saves emotional information and can be a reservoir of creativity.

How does it work?

The first step of hypnosis begins with extreme relaxation. This may start with you laying down on the couch, taking a few deep breaths, and feeling the tenseness in your body release. There are two stages of hypnosis, the first is induction, and the second is suggestion.

Hypnotherapists have a variety of suggestions to quiet the mind and body, such as doing progressive relaxation or breathing techniques.  Different suggestions are given as people learn and experience in different ways such as visual, kinaesthetic, or auditory. This is why there is constant communication between you and the hypnotherapist to assess if the suggestion being used is the best fit for your experience.

Some hypnotherapists have you go into situations or histories that are the root of your concerns, but I find that doing this directly can cause more connections to the issue. This is why I have you connect to a part of yourself that feels resilient and safe where you can more effectively deal with the issue without having to relive something that may re-traumatize you.

I had the pleasure of meeting Nicklas in a professional setting.  In the area in which I work, I have people often ask me to recommend a counsellor, so I decided to see how Nicklas worked.  I was so impressed that I decided to see if she could help with anxiety I was having concerning my upcoming licensing exam for Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have had the unfortunate experience of writing an important exam and in spite of my hours of preparation, my anxiety got in the way and I couldn’t recall anything I had studied on the day of the exam.  This experience was always in the back of my head, and I was worried of it happening again.  I worked with Nicklas using hypnotherapy and counselling to look at my fears concerning the exam.  On the day of the exam I knew my time with Nicklas made a difference – I was calm and centred.  In spite of the enormous difficulty of the exam, I worked with a sense of ease and I was surprised at what I could recall.  Afterwards, I even noticed how much calmer I was while I waited for the results. I am happy to say I passed the exam, and I know without a doubt my time with Nicklas made all the difference.  I can even see how my time spent with her has made a positive impact in other aspects of my life. I now recommend Nicklas to anyone who asks.

I was looking for a way to have more energy, be a lot more efficient and productive, and to find a way to feel optimistic, passionate, and more driven. I had spent twenty years of life raising kids and sacrificing myself for family. I had suffered from a lot of stress over those years and was looking launch myself into a rewarding career. I set to overhaul my mind, body, and spirit. I started with hypnotherapy, and moved into neurofeedback. I have noticed changes in my visual recall, self-organization, optimism, and resilience. I am no longer overwhelmed by everything that happens in my daily life, and am able to remain centred and focused on the goals I have begun to lay out for myself.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hypnotherapy

Will the hypnotherapist be controlling me?

No. When some people think of hypnosis they become concerned that they will become controlled to do what the hypnotherapist tells them to do, but this is not true. When a person is in a hypnotic state they are in a hyper-attentive, conscious, and relaxed state. They are free to ignore, give themselves a different suggestion, and decide whether or not to explore what is being suggested.

Will I have to revisit unpleasant or traumatic experiences?

No. Hypnosis does not require that you go back to any negative experiences or trauma. For this reason, hypnosis is very helpful for clients that have experienced any kind of trauma or unpleasant experiences. Rather, the hypnotherapist must reframe the memory in a positive way and give the client a positive experience in the present, and a suggestion for the future.

Can hypnotherapy give me a competitive edge in business or professional environments?

Yes.  Athletes have long known the power of hypnosis and its effectiveness is now being recognized in business. It can help you gain specific abilities to help you advance in your career, or start a new business. Most of your obstacles have to do with a feeling or impression you have of yourself, therefore we can use hypnotherapy to help you overcome fears of public speaking, lack of concentration, lack of sales skills, lack of confidence and much more. Essentially, hypnosis can help you gain power over your own mind so that it can be a tool to your advantage, rather than an obstacle.

Are appointments in-person, virtual, or over the telephone?

We offer appointments in-person in our office in North Vancouver, telephone appointments, as well as appointments via a secure online video platform. Your initial 30-min free consultation will be a telephone or online video appointment, you can select whichever you prefer when you book, but appointments after that can be in-person if you would prefer that.

Will insurance cover my appointment?

If you have an extended health insurance plan you may be able to use your benefits to cover part or all of your appointment cost. Plans can vary, so please check if your policy provides coverage for counselling services provided by either a Registered Clinical Counsellor or a Certified Canadian Counsellor. If you do, you can be reimbursed for your appointment cost through your insurance company at the rate that is detailed in your plan.
