What Is A Clinical Hypnotherapist?

Clinical Hypnotherapy is…

Root Cause Therapy
Trauma Informed Therapy
Belief Repatterning Therapy
Neuro Rewiring Therapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy is a form of neuro-psychotherapy with roots in existing evidence-based therapies.

Extensively trained Clinical Hypnotherapists utilize the brain’s own ability to rewire, heal and process trauma by incorporating a “hypnotic trance” which, simply put, bypasses the conscious mind and existing beliefs which inhibit healing and change going right to the source of all our beliefs and behaviours, the subconscious mind.

Clinical Hypnotherapy incorporates a combination of protocols and techniques used in many other traditional psychotherapies but works directly with the subconscious mind (the source) to reprogram the way in which traumatic memories and images are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions. Working in this beautiful state of the deepest relaxation doesn’t just facilitate healing but does so without retraumatizing the client.

Clinical Hypnotherapy is safe, evidence based and nothing like what is sensationalized in movies or demonstrated in stage shows.


A Clinical Hypnotherapist is a mental health professional with extensive training and expertise in the clinical application of hypnosis in therapy.

The training includes a working knowledge of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The DSM is the handbook used by health care professionals throughout the world as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders. The DSM contains descriptions, symptoms, and other criteria for diagnosing mental disorders. In addition to this working knowledge, a Clinical Hypnotherapist has extensively studied the specific protocols that help their clients recover from these disorders and so much more.

Hypnotherapy is unregulated in most Canadian provinces. That means that anyone can call themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist.

ARCH Canada is the only regulating and certifying body in Canada that insures it’s registered members have the required training necessary to not only title themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist but to apply the clinical application of hypnosis in therapy.

About Your Instructor

For over 10 years I have been studying human behaviour and the neuroscience of the subconscious. I am the director of The Academy of Clinical Hypnotherapy as well as an instructor of the same. When I’m not educating and mentoring other Clinical Hypnotherapists, I am writing books on the subject or developing training material and workshops.  And of course, always reading and training to make sure my knowledge and skills remain current.
Are you interested in Hypnotherapy Certification? Please check out my Academy website or of course contact me directly with any questions, I’d be happy to help!
