I provide Hypnosis services and EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique – specializing in weight solutions and smoking cessation.    My goal with clients is to empower them to help themselves in any issue they bring to their session.  

“Hypnosis is such an amazing and effective method of making changes harnessing the power of the mind.”

Since 1999, I have led clients through a holistic approach to wellness, encompassing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of each individual client. 

I have authored a book on my own program “Exhale Weight” based on my own personal journey with weight which uses common sense concepts for the emotional aspects of overeating. 

I teach and Certify new Hypnotists.  I love the “aha” moment when it all becomes clear to them and the excitement they have as new Hypnotists. 

Personal History: I have been married for 54 years to my husband Brian.  I was a stay at home mom for many years and I raised five children. I have nine grandchildren. 

Ongoing Training: I am in constant training at conferences, conventions, and workshops. I am always interested in learning the latest techniques and upgrading my skills.  I speak and teach at several conferences a year in several different countries.

Conferences: I am the Director of Hypnobizcanada, a conference held annually in October in Ontario near the Toronto Airport.   www.hypnobizcanada.com. Our theme is A Rejuvenating Spa for the Mind. Not just for Hypnotists, we have metaphysical classes that anyone can enjoy.  Join us on Oct. 25 and 26.  Post Conference workshops Sun. Oct. 27 & 28th.
