Celebrating Our 6-Year Anniversary: The Greater Toronto Hypnosis Story
This month, Greater Toronto Hypnosis is celebrating its anniversary and to share our excitement we’re offering $100.00 off any program you sign up for in the month of May!
After six years of beautiful opportunities to help people through hypnosis, I’ve been inspired to reflect on what got me started on this track in the first place.
I’ve always been the kind of person others would open up to. Some people will know exactly what I mean. In high school, I earned the nickname “The Therapist” because people would just talk to me and for some reason, they felt comfortable sharing the personal and intimate things that were on their hearts.
I realized this was a gift, and because I’ve always loved helping people, I knew there had to be a way I could use this gift to do just that. While I continued to pursue other career paths, I held onto this feeling of being pulled back to helping others.
In 2012, I went through some of the biggest personal changes I’d ever experienced. As my world was changing in [so] many ways, I was given the chance to learn how hypnosis can be used in a therapeutic way to help people.
Does This Actually Work?
Until I experienced it myself for the first time, I couldn’t help but wonder, does hypnosis really work?
My close friend, who teaches hypnosis, convinced me to give it a try. I thought it could dovetail nicely with what I was already doing and my future career goals, so I went for it. As the saying goes: “opportunity knocks softly”, and I, of course, am very grateful that I heard the call and listened. So I began my training.
Part of the training involved my teacher hypnotizing me for the first time. What I experienced blew my mind and I immediately felt the positive effects of hypnosis. You can read the story in this post about getting started with hypnosis, but in short, I discovered that hypnosis was a safe, completely natural, side-effect free way for people to tackle the big problems that plague our lives. These issues include stress, anxiety, panic, overeating, smoking, procrastination, and more.
More importantly, because it worked for me, I thought, This can work for anyone! Within hypnosis, I saw a tool with amazing potential to effectively help people. And that’s what inspired me to launch the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre.
By no means am I calling hypnosis a magical cure-all for the struggles of life. There is no such thing as a “magic pill”. But does hypnosis work? Does it help? I can say from personal experience and the results many of my clients have achieved over the years: yes, hypnosis works.
You can read dozens of stories from people we’ve helped on our testimonials page.
Helping People Through Hypnosis
With hypnosis, I ventured into a new world. I went through the training to become a Certified Consulting Consulting Hypnotist, created a brand and website, and opened my first office in May 2013.
Initially, my focus was to help people lose weight and stop smoking; the business and scope of practice grew remarkably from there. At Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, we’ve been helping people improve their lives physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Six years later, the business continues to grow. And I couldn’t be more grateful for it. I love empowering people to make positive changes in their lives and achieve their goals.
I am privileged to have this job and look forward to many more years of using hypnosis to help people. To all of our past and present clients, thank you for business and continued support!
