Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. The difference in Hypnotherapy is that we have a specific goal and focus for the session. Hypnotherapy allows us to tap into our own inner guidance, as well as follow the suggestions and techniques of the Hypnotherapist in order to affect positive change.
Freud described the mind as an iceberg, stating that the conscious mind (the level that we are aware of in our daily lives) is only the tip of the iceberg. Yet 95% of the iceberg resides underwater - the subconscious mind. This is the part of the mind responsible for repetitive thought patterns, habits and behaviours.
Just like a record on repeat, we are all unknowingly controlled by our subconscious beliefs, so no matter how often we tell ourselves not to eat that extra piece of cake, stay up late or react to our spouse in the same old way, we find ourselves subconsciously doing it anyway! As we repeat the same limiting thought patterns and unwanted behaviours for years on end, we prove to ourselves that change is incredibly difficult for the conscious mind. In Hypnosis we are able to drop beneath the conscious mind into the subconscious and rewire those old limiting beliefs and habits.
The uses of Hypnotherapy range from overcoming unwanted habits, thought patterns or behaviours such as overeating, smoking or procrastinating, conquering fears & phobias, relieving anxiety & panic, releasing trauma, boosting confidence, decision making, enhancing skills & mental focus, memory recall, life guidance & overcoming grief or loss, to support for medical conditions, pain management, relief from insomnia, weight loss & childbirth preparation. It can be used for just about anything - the only limit is your imagination!

Sophia became fascinated by the mind at a young age, when she developed a curiosity about what compels some people to succeed no matter what, whilst others remain unmotivated and controlled by habits.
This curiosity led her to study Hypnotherapy in 2008 at the Chrysalis Institute of Nanaimo, BC. Intrigued & encouraged by the results of her clients, she became eager to learn more.
In 2011 she studied Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy with Dolores Cannon.
In 2012 she attended the NLP University & completed her NLP Master Certificate with Robert Diltz & Judith DeLozier. The same year Sophia became aware of the newly emerging field of Medical Support Hypnotherapy and attended the Hypnotherapy Academy of America to become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist & Medical Support Hypnotherapist.
Sophia has witnessed the powerful transformative effects of Hypnotherapy in her own life and in the lives of her clients & peers.
She is passionate about helping others to work through their limitations & unlock their full potential by harnessing the power of the subconscious mind.
How long do Sessions last?
Hypnotherapy sessions are 60 - 75 minutes long
What does Hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis feels a little different for everyone, but is a deeply relaxed, dream like state, somewhere in-between the waking and sleep state. Some people may notice their bodies become very heavy, whilst others may experience a light, floaty feeling in trance.
Can I get stuck in trance?
No. Hypnosis is a natural state and as such you would naturally wake from a trance, even if you were left alone.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Yes. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all enter into at least twice per day - on awaking and drifting to sleep. All that is required from you is a willingness to follow the suggestions of the Hypnotherapist, in order to experience a pleasant state of trance.
Will the Hypnotherapist be in control of me?
No. In Hypnosis your subconscious mind is in control and will guide you to where you need to go.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required depends on the issue you are working with and is different for everyone. Generally, you will see a significant shift in just one session. However for deep transformational work three or more sessions are recommended.
Is there Homework?
Yes. Every client is provided with a customized audio to listen to at home, as science has proven the power of repetition in retraining the mind. In addition, quick and easy strategies are often recommended to help ease anxiety or difficult emotions. As with anything in life, the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it.
