Bringing The Unconscious Into Focus
Address Deep-Rooted Issues & Make Lasting Change
95% of your thoughts and behaviours are processed and stored in your unconscious 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 unconscious 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 and neurofeedback to help you access your unconscious mind, get to the root of your problems, and reprogram unwanted thought and behaviour patterns for good.
Evidence-Based Techniques & Person-Centred Treatments
We start by getting to know each other in a free consultation. We’ll listen to what you’re struggling with, ask some questions to understand your situation better, and then recommend which services are best suited for you.
At that point you can decide if you’d like to book your first session— and we’ll give you a discount on it!
Then, in your follow up sessions, we’ll work with you to create a map for success and balance in all areas of your life, from your health, to your relationships, to your career, personal growth, and spirituality. Every individual’s map is different, and their path to get there is different, so we’ll work together specifically to draw on which therapy techniques are needed at each moment to support you toward achieving your goals.

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. The therapist will provide suggestions and prompts, but the individual is free to ignore, give themselves a different suggestion, and decide whether or not to explore what is being suggested.
No. Some people do prefer to meet in-person and for those individuals we have a comfortable office in North Vancouver where you can meet with your counsellor or coach. We have instituted new COVID-19 protocols to keep our clients and staff safe. Alternatively, counselling and coaching can be done over the telephone or through online video calls.
After your free 15-minute consultation, you will be provided an opportunity to book your first 60-min appointment at a discounted rate of $145 + GST. Additional 60-minute counselling or hypnotherapy sessions cost $150 + GST, and additional neurofeedback sessions cost $119 + GST.
We also have packages available to reduce the cost if your individual sessions, and we provide a discounted rate for neurofeedback clients who want to add a 45-minute counselling or hypnotherapy session after their neurofeedback 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.
