Thunder Bay, Ontario

Clinical Social Work

Clinical therapy is a private and confidential process that begins with a trusting relationship between client and Social Worker. The pace and goals are established by you, with support and guidance from me. Clinical Social Work and/or Hypnotherapy services are available for a range of issues, challenges, and life events.

Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy and /or Hypnosis is nothing like the “stage acts” that we’ve all seen at fairs or on television where people seem to have no awareness of what is going on or what they are asked to do.  In Hypnotherapy the client is 100% conscious of what is happening at ALL times.  The mind is clear and alert although the body is very relaxed.  In this state the sub-conscious is able to be accessed easily and great healing can take place.  The sub-conscious is the part of the mind that is active during dreaming.
