The most effective way to reach your Subconscious Mind in a non-invasive lasting and permanent way is through Hypnotherapy. This is because hypnotherapy accesses the theta wave of your brain which is a deep relaxed state of mind where you effectively become aware of those beliefs, those habits, those emotional responses, those subconscious blueprints. And when you become aware of your subconscious blueprint, you can change them.
What is Hypnosis?
Forget what you’ve seen in the movies. Simply put, hypnosis is Meditation with a Goal. It is like coaching for your subconscious mind.
It feels just like meditation but instead of releasing and letting go of thought and desires, you are intentionally creating new neuro-pathways in your brain, new beliefs, new emotional responses that will support who you want to be, how you want to behave, and/or how you want to feel day-to-day.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to bring you into that relaxed theta wave brain-state where you get to work on a goal that is important to you.
Hypnosis is a natural, familiar state which you move in and out of all day long, without being aware of it, you have already accessed it thousands of times in your life. For instance, driving long distances, watching TV, listening to music, working on a project you are passionate about. Flow state is a brain wave state. Hypnosis is the theta brain wave state. In this more relaxed state, you can make powerful changes to your life. Because it is the state where you are the most receptive.
It is where you access your most potent problem-solving capabilities.
More relaxation means heightened capabilities to access your creativity in order to make deeper and long-lasting permanent positive changes in your life.
Can everybody get hypnotised?
Yes! As long as they are willing to and give permission to the therapist.
How does a session work?
The session starts by discussing your goal.
Then, you will choose to be lying down or staying seated comfortably and close your eyes to get free! The first part is what we call the induction – a long and relaxing guided technique helping you relax so deeply that you access theta waves brain state.
The second part of a session is where the therapy work actually happens. You will be listening to my voice and you will be able to talk and answer my questions. At all times you can move your body if you want, you can talk, and you will remember everything. The worst thing that can happen to you is fall asleep J And if this happens, I will gently bring you back to the deep relaxed state you were in to continue the session.
The third and last part is emerging back into your conscious awareness and debrief with the therapist.
What is hypnotic state comparing to being awake and sleeping?
When awake, your conscious mind is awake and has control.
When sleeping, your conscious mind is not awake and has no control
It is different when you are in hypnotic state. Your conscious mind is awake and has no control and your subconscious mind is awake and has control. You are awake but the control is less. It means if you want to move your hand you can but it feels different. It is heavier. The more the conscious mind loses control the deeper you are in hypnotic state.
How long does a session last?
Between 60 to 90 minutes. Always better to plan your time for 90 minutes, as there is no point to be stressed by the time when the objective is to relax so deeply to get access to your subconscious mind.
All sessions – Hypnotherapy or Coaching can be done in French or English. You can even learn Hypnotherapy with Alice. It is a great way to better understand how your mind works and you don’t need to become a hypnotherapist for that.
I was recommended to meet Emilie in May by my wife as I was going through an intense stress period affecting my personal and professional life.
Throughout the sessions, Emilie helped me regain confidence, understand the root cause of my anxiety, and keep the positive momentum while getting advice and tips to avoid falling back into the negative spiral.
Emilie’s hypnotherapy skills are fantastic. It’s an absolute pleasure to let yourself be guided to the light by Emilie. Her hypnotherapy techniques, her listening and understanding skills and strategy helped me to walk out of the negative circle I was stuck in.
With her support, I was able to bring back optimism in my life and keep negativity at bay.
I look forward to working with Emilie again and would highly recommend her. F.D.
After 5 Sessions (of hypnotherapy) I feel like a brain new super positive person. Emilie’s special gift is the calm kindness and patience that makes one comfortable and understood. I definitely recommend her. S.G.
“I suffer from an anxiety disorder, stress, panic attacks, and anger that I struggle to manage. Emilie has been very patient, understanding, and helpful since our very first session. She helped me understand how life works and helped me learn how to address and have a positive response and outlook on my life, problems, and when I am in an argument. And I have noticed that there have been subtle shifts in my thoughts and perspectives from negative thoughts processing to positive thoughts. I have also gotten better at managing my emotions and thoughts. She has also helped me remind myself that I am loved, supported and that I am not alone in this battle. Thank you, Emilie, for your patience and support!” D.P.
Although I had no preconceived idea of what hypnotherapy was, I did not initially feel particularly drawn to it. But what Emilie has helped me understand and accept, thanks to her methods and way of driving the sessions, was beyond what I could imagine. The sessions I had were very powerful and unleashed a lot of emotions and understanding. S.R.
The hypnotherapy sessions were impactful, helpful and rewarding. Among several areas, the most notable ones were:
1) Guiding me to review my behaviours, perceptions and sensations towards guilt and physical pain. In doing so, it has enabled me to develop a platform for ongoing self-reflection, change and transformation.
2) Allowing me the opportunity to revisit past events and incidents to get clarity on my feelings towards them. This, at times, gave me assurance while other times, challenged me to look deeper into how such events had and still can impact my mind’s interpretations.
3) Providing tips and tools I could take away to use in the future, e.g., self-hypnotherapy, insights on the conscious and subconscious mind working together, etc.
Overall I’m very grateful for Emilie’s professional support throughout the process of hypnotherapy. Thank you! E.K.
I went to see Emilie mainly because I find Hypnotherapy quite fun. I planned to work on simple things with Emilie like standing up for myself and higher self-esteem, etc. I didn’t think it was bad for me but I wanted to see what it would be like to clear away even the slightest of things that were in my way of living my best life.
Emilie helped me to remove blocks that were so deeply ingrained in me that, to me, they were just a part of what made up the world in general and hence, I had no way around them. To me, unconsciously, they were just a part of the laws of the universe, like gravity… until I stopped and consciously decided that these were just thoughts I was thinking that weren’t serving me and truly felt in my body and mind and conscience what I was truly capable of as a creative human being I had come into my power and alignment. I felt better than I ever had mentally.
I believe, because of this, that I am now a lot kinder to myself. I feel very quickly when I am not in a good mental space and do my exercises that Emilie gave me to bring myself to a place of better alignment. She gave me lots of mental tools to use if I ever feel not my best. D.P.K.
I have thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted enormously from the hypnotherapy sessions. Emilie is thorough, methodical and adaptable. She ensures that I am fully informed of how hypnotherapy works and what to expect. She is also kind and compassionate. Emilie is able to tailor each session according to my progress; as a result, my sleep issue is resolved.
Thank you, Emilie, for all your help. I would highly recommend Emilie to anyone who might like to use hypnotherapy as a tool for their well-being.. J.L.
I came to see Emilie to learn about myself and understand through the hypnosis to positive the negative image I had. There is still a path to continue, but with the tools Emilie taught me, I am confident I can change the way I think. A. V.
