What Is Hypnotherapy?
Milton Erickson, M.D., the father of modern day hypnotherapy had a lot of trouble with that question, probably because it had a lot of definitions and no one has really determined if there is one single definition. One of my favorite definitions is, “a process where people a...

I saw Sheldon weekly over the course of a few months to obtain his support for a serious phobia. He has been amazing. For the first time in my adult life, I have been able to find some peace of mind regarding my phobia. He understands phobias very well and has decades of experience treating them. He uses a variety of tools, including but not limited to hypnotherapy, to help clients overcome phobias. If you have a phobia and want to tackle it, see Sheldon. It is worth the time. You don’t have to live with it.

I have been familiar with Sheldon’s counselling practice for over 15 years. The first time I experienced Sheldon’s skills was when he helped me with a fear of passing large trucks on the highway. I had real anxiety while driving on the highways in BC specifically around passing the double trailer trucks that are numerous on the roads. After one session with Sheldon, which included trance work, I found that my anxiety began to leave me almost immediately. In fact, on the way home that day, I interacted with several big trucks and found that the techniques that were introduced to me during my session with Sheldon really helped with my anxiety level. Within a few weeks, using the new skills I’d been introduced to during my session, I found I had truly overcome my truck fetish. Thanks Sheldon, you are truly an impeccable example of a skilled service provider.

Sheldon is an amazing mentor, counsellor and healer. He uses many different techniques to help his clients get in touch with their inner self. His natural caring personality makes everyone feel safe and understood. I highly recommend him for anyone who seeks guidance.

About My Practice

My practice is focused on the ability of each individual to discover their own inner resources and reach their own resolutions. Whether it's dealing with a phobia, panic attack, self-esteem, weight and body image, addictions or any other challenges, it is a matter of getting back in touch with our ability to heal ourselves. 

There is no magic solution and no quick fix. In a sense the real magic is being able to realize and understand where our power is. My role is to support you in that process using a variety of methods and approaches such as, hypnotherapy and other Eastern methods which enhance your ability to increase your own inner awareness and discover the keys to creating change in your life. 

I have been in private practice in for 37 years and have worked in a wide range of approaches to healing and self-empowerment. My work with clients has taught me a great deal about myself and my ability to overcome issues throughout my life. In my practice, I offer that experience along with my skills to support you in finding your own way. 

Everyone is different, with different needs and the cookie-cutter approach simply does not work. My first priority is to learn who you are and allow you to tell me verbally or non verbally what you need so I can support you in whatever process is appropriate. I am also registered with the Crime Victim Assistance Program in BC .
