Heal, Grow & Create Lasting Change

Reprogram negative thoughts and behaviours. Get yourself unstuck.
And finally experience the positive changes you’ve been waiting for.

Counselling to Break The Patterns Keeping You Unhappy

Sometimes you may feel stuck in repeated patterns of thoughts and feelings. You have every intention to change, you tell yourself “it’ll be different next time”, but when it comes down to it— you fall back into those old patterns.

This can make you feel completely powerless, stuck, and feeling defeated. You wonder why you can’t simply move on. Why can’t you just let it go?

This feeling is incredibly frustrating, it’s also completely normal and human. 95% of your thoughts and behaviours are processed and stored in your subconscious mind and are the result of the learning and conditioning you underwent in childhood. They become “patterns” in your mind, so deeply ingrained that they can’t be consciously accessed or changed.

This is why, even though you want something better for yourself, you find yourself stuck.

Without accessing your subconscious mind, you’ll naturally snap back into your known, familiar ways of being every time— because they feel safe, and your brain is programmed that way.

We use the evidence-based therapeutic techniques of hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and neurofeedback to help you access your subconscious mind, get to the root of your problems, and reprogram unwanted thought and behaviour patterns for good.

Whether you’re looking to create lasting change for yourself or for you and a family member or partner– we’re here to help!

“Nicklas’s knowledge and approach to how we can free ourselves from the limiting programs from the past is liberating and incredibly empowering. It means that each of us can learn to create our present and our future from a ‘clean slate’ as it were, and take the step towards extraordinary futures.”

Evidence-Based Counselling Techniques & Person-Centred Treatments

As a counsellor, hypnotherapist, and neurofeedback trainer, I’ll help you to get to the root of your subconscious programming, so we can work together start to retrain your brain and create lasting change.


Hypnotherapy guides you into a relaxed state. It allows your mind to process the information it’s become overwhelmed with by reprogramming your unconscious 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.

No. When trauma is involved, we use Hypnotherapy which does not force us 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.
