Recently I read an article by the late Dr. Wayne Dyer who said: “In order to restore a sense of balance between your desire for tranquility and your desire to meet the requirements of your life, you must practice becoming and being the vibration that you desire.” For those who are used to thinking of vibration as something that happens when a train rattles past, not some elusive sense of being, I think what Wayne is getting at is that the restlessness, striving and anxiety that seem to underpin our everyday lives, no matter how great our achievements or our commitment to serving others, are going to hang around until we find a way to be calm, period. Many people have found that hypnotherapy is the key for them to root out blockages in their subconscious mind allowing them to have a sense of fully living and experiencing a sense of calm on a daily basis.

Before the age of about 12, the subconscious mind is wide open and will take in whatever is thrown at it. In most cases, this is from parents, teachers, peers, and the social/religious/political culture of the time. We’re then left with the arduous task of working out who we are, what we want to believe about ourselves, the world and the universe, and how we can remove the beliefs that we don’t want or need in our subconscious minds.

Affirmations are great because the repetition will eventually make a dent in our old beliefs. We just need to make sure we add a good dose of emotion to fuel the process. Any kind of therapy with a therapist we like and trust is good too. We can never have too much support to become the person we want to be. For me, I love to read and hear from authors who have been “through it” and have insights that I can apply to my journey. But using hypnotherapy has been by far the greatest tool for my own personal development and that of my clients.

I happened upon hypnotherapy during one of my lazy Sundays. I guess Kobo was tracking my preferences quite well, and a book suggestion popped up called Life Between Lives by Michael Newton. I felt compelled to read it and was astounded to learn all about the smooth transition to the subconscious mind, and how healing takes place. It made me wonder why in all my years of coaching individuals and groups that hypnotherapy hadn’t really been discussed for anything other than to quit smoking.

This began my research and certification in hypnotherapy. I’m continually amazed and impressed by the myriad personal issues hypnotherapy can address, the goal attainment that is possible for people and the personal discoveries that are so life-changing.

My path to this place of discovery was kind of full-circle. I started in the area of psychology in the 80s working with local youth, then adults with disabilities, before moving into various areas of business including coaching, which involved a great deal of time working with teams on leadership, business management and personality testing/analysis used to assist them in navigating their various relationships. Moving from Australia to Canada ten years ago I took the opportunity to combine everything I loved about the first half of my working life and create something new and exciting in this wonderful country. Hypnotherapy was part of that redesign. Hypnotherapy really is the most profoundly transformative therapy I have worked with thus far. My clients report changes in their lives, relationships, weight, habits and more in only a few sessions. I wish I’d had this healing modality in my arsenal in the 80s.
