Private Hypnosis Appointments

in general...

Hypnosis can be used for a wide range of presenting issues.

Since 1998 I have guided clients in relief for issues such as:

nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP)

turning a breech presentation

smoking cessation

anxious feelings

reducing stress

fears (i.e. needles, pain, hospitals, flying, etc)

sleep difficulties


restless legs

fertility challenges

pre- and post-operative preparation

pre- and/or postpartum sad feelings

breastfeeding difficulties

metaphysical (Past Life Regression, Life Between Lives)

While individual needs vary, many find it helpful to consider a four appointment format.

Appointments include intake, discussion about your goals and one or more of the following modalities:



Energy Tapping (also known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique)

Matrix Reimprinting

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)


Energy Medicine.

I am very careful to guide your appointment in ways that you prefer so that you feel safe and empowered throughout.

You will leave the appointment feeling lighter, more free and confident.

You may find that one appointment is all that you need to get the relief you want.

Some people find they need many appointments. You choose. 

First appointment:

The first appointment consists of a thorough intake and discussion of the situation.

Hypnosis is provided based on your needs. Suggestions that you prefer are used - these can be provided in advance of the appointment for you to review. I record the hypnosis component and send to you as an mp3. One option is a hypnosis recording that you go to sleep to. 

This appointment includes access to a private link that has additional resources (mp3s, etc) that you may find helpful. 

Subsequent appointments:

Second and subsequent appointments are to identify and change unconscious beliefs in order to gain greater perspective and shift your  emotional state into a more resourceful one.


$210 for first appointment

$185 for subsequent appointments

Online Appointments

Hypnosis works very well online primarily because you are in the comfort of your home.

What is needed is a setup where the light is on you (not behind you). I need to be able to see your upper body.

Many people choose a bed or a couch to do the hypnosis. Usually the beginning of the appointment entails chatting, and that can be done sitting up at a desk or elsewhere.

Let me know if you have specific questions on this.

In-Person Appointments

Location: south-west Toronto

This option has limited availability -

please contact me for details.

As I have congenital hearing loss and have used lip-reading my entire life, I don't do well when faces are covered (i.e. masks).

If it is important that masks be used, please use the online option.
