Counselling For Anxiety

Free Yourself From Anxiety

Retrain your unconscious mind. Overcome anxiety, defeat, and frustration. And feel like yourself again, for good.

Break The Patterns Keeping You Unhappy

If you’ve experienced anxiety, you know what it’s like to feel stuck in repeated patterns of thoughts and feelings. You know what it’s like to wish you could make a change, but feel completely powerless over your behaviours. You understand feeling stuck and feeling defeated. You wonder why you can’t simply move on. Why you can’t just let it go.

But although this feeling is incredibly frustrating, it’s also a completely human stress response. Your brain is under duress, so it reverts back to operating unconsciously. It relies on the default programming that’s been developing throughout your life. It’s the reason why, even when you want to change your behaviour, in your current state, you actually can’t. You naturally snap back into old routines and patterns. Because they are familiar, and they seem safe.

To get to the root of the problem and actually change your anxiety-inducing behaviours and thought patterns, you need to reprogram your subconscious mind. With a combination of hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and neurofeedback sessions, we can help you do just that.

“I’ve been doing neurofeedback for over a year and the benefits are staggering. I find it helps to relieve my anxiety, usually within the session. I’ve incorporated hypnosis after my neuro sessions as well and I am amazed at the results. I’ve been able to overcome limiting beliefs, heal childhood wounds as well as experience my life in the future. This has helped me heal from the trauma and feel excited about my future”

Relax, Retrain & Let Anxiety Go

When you’re in a state of stress, it’s impossible to access your subconscious mind. As a counsellor, hypnotherapist, and neurofeedback trainer, I’ll help you to relax your mind so we can start to retrain your brain.


Hypnotherapy guides you into a relaxed state. It allows your mind to process the information it’s become overwhelmed with by reprogramming your subconscious mind. You’ll calm your mind and body, make sense of your thoughts, and keep what’s vital while letting the rest go.


Neurofeedback trains the brain to be more flexible. It monitors your brainwaves and gives your brain subtle cues when it detects inefficient functioning. It will help you become more resilient and achieve greater results from your other mindfulness practices.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a highly effective type of talk therapy, capable of addressing a wide range of concerns. It looks at your current problems, rather than past traumas, and focuses on your ability to change how you think, feel, and behave in certain situations.

No. Hypnotherapy does not force you to go back to or relive negative experiences or trauma. In fact, it’s the opposite— hypnosis is very helpful for dealing with negative past experiences and trauma because it can help you reframe your negative memories in a more positive way.

Your initial, free consultation will be a telephone appointment. Following that, you can choose between telephone, virtual, or in-person appointments at our clinic in North Vancouver.

It’s recommended to first book a free 15-minute consultation to chat with Nicklas and figure out if you’re a good fit to work together. 

After, you will be provided an opportunity to book your first 60-min appointment at a discounted rate of $150 + GST. 

Additional appointments vary by appointment type: 

  • 60-minute counselling, coaching, or hypnotherapy sessions cost $175 + GST.
  • 45-minute neurofeedback appointments cost $125 + GST
  • 75-minute appointments that combine neurofeedback with hypnotherapy or counselling cost $205 + GST

Packages are available to reduce the cost of individual sessions. 

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 a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) or a Registered Social Worker (RSW). If you do, you can be reimbursed for your appointment cost through your insurance company at the rate that is detailed in your plan.
