How It Began
Many people ask me why I chose to become a hypnotist. Well, one of the fundamental reasons is that I have always loved to help people. But more to the point, since I was a teenager, people…just…talk to me. What I mean, is that it’s often been my experience that even people who I barely know, seem to open up and confide in me. In fact, I have been amazed at how many people have asked for my advice – and in most cases followed it since I was a young man.
It naturally seemed like a logical decision to involve myself in a field where I could help people. However what I’ve learned is that if a person isn’t ready for IT, and is not willing to do IT themselves (i.e. not have someone else do it for them), then they will not be successful. The “it” can be a task that needs to be done, a habit they are trying to break, or a goal they are trying to reach, etc.
Why Hypnosis Works
I explain to clients that when you are in the state of hypnosis, you help to teach yourself how to do that certain “it”. When hypnotized, you are better able to respond to suggestions, and therefore can change various behaviors such as quitting smoking, losing weight, reducing stress and improving self-esteem.
Because I like to help people, I learned to be a hypnotist. I opened up my office more than 4 years ago. Since then I’ve been able to help others achieve a wide range of goals. It feels good to help teach people how to gain the tools for success, as well as assist them in getting out of their funks because they are not living their life to the fullest.
Taking on a client without first screening and discussing their issues, will not productive for anyone involved. This is one of the main reasons that I offer a FREE consultation to every client. This is so that I can ensure that they will be a good candidate for hypnosis. The screening process takes approximately 45 minutes. Not only is it informative; the client learns some information about hypnosis, and I get to learn details about them and their issue.
As a hypnotist, I experience great satisfaction helping my clients work through their issues and achieve their goals through the natural, safe and effective method of hypnosis!

I have a friend who is a recovering alcoholic. He has been sober for 10 years and I couldn’t be more proud of him! During a recent conversation, he shared that the number of alcoholics that actually go and get help for their problem is incredibly low. According to an article on rehabs.com, there are up to 22 million people in need of treatment for drug and alcohol use. Fewer than 1% of them get any help for their substance abuse (http://luxury.rehabs.com/alcohol-rehab/statistics/).
I must admit, I found those numbers to be very sad. My friend felt that many who need help, just don’t go and obtain the assistance they require. We both agreed that one has to be ready. And when they are, they would seek support, but not before.
This got me thinking about my clients who come to me for hypnosis to seek improvement on various issues in their lives. I could see that my hypnosis practice was very similar to the situation my friend spoke about. There are many who suffer and want to lose weight, stop smoking, ease stress, build confidence, sleep better, get over fears, etc. However not all people will actually take the steps towards working on their issues and finding relief.
It can be very humbling to admit that you have an issue that you want to work on, and that realization is in fact a huge first step. However as I discussed in my last article, the follow-through and finding the resources to get help is so important.
At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we always offer a free screening to everyone. Even before we accept them as a client. We see if hypnosis will work for them, and to be sure that we can even accept them as a client in the first place. One of the things I tell everyone who comes in for the free screening is that they should be very proud of themselves. They have taken the first step that many don’t or aren’t even ready to do.
By making the appointment to see if hypnosis can work for them, they are making the move towards fixing their issue. That first baby step is so significant, and at the end of the day, isn’t that forward momentum what it’s all about?
So make your move, call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see how hypnosis can help achieve your objective: (647) 210-8842
