How many sessions will I need? 

Most issues that I work with are completed in 1 to 4 sessions, however each client is individual & this will be discussed during your consultation. Stop smoking may be as little 1 or 2 sessions. Learn More…

What happens during the sessions?

The initial part of the session is explaining how it works & the rest is actually doing the work in hypnosis. The process is explained during your first session & any questions answered before any hypnosis takes place. We will find out what your goals are & how best to help you to reach those goals using hypnosis & self-hypnosis.

Together we will work as a team as you go through the process, neutralizing any old limiting beliefs, emotions or habits that have caused you to not be as successful as you would like to be regarding the issues that you want to work on.

Going into hypnosis is a partnership between the Hypnotist & you. It requires your willingness & ability to follow a set of simple instructions.

What if I have a medical condition?

Hypnosis is completely safe for the vast majority of people. However, all hypnosis involving medical conditions, such as managing pain, epilepsy, clinical depression, or any other physical condition will need a doctors referral. This is to ensure that we do not interfere with the work that your doctor is doing with you. With hypnosis, we are able to mask pain, which may interfere with a doctor’s diagnosis. If you want to use hypnosis to help you with a medical condition, give me a call. I know how to set up the referral.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

Required is a credit card number or an advanced payment (cash) to hold & confirm an appointment.

Credit cards will not be charged unless you do not show up, cancel or reschedule your appointment without the required two working day’s (Monday – Friday) notice.

For example, if the appointment is on Thursday, in order not to be charged for an appointment, the office must be notified of the change no later than Tuesday during office hours. No exceptions.

Clients making cancellations, missing appointments or rescheduling on the same day as the appointment will be charged for the time scheduled for that day, because I will be unable to utilize that time to schedule in another client upon such short notice. No exceptions.

This is being done to ensure that appointment times are being best utilized. Many clients are needing to wait 1-2 weeks to come in. If I am given enough advance notice, then I am able to schedule clients efficiently.

This will also ensure better use of our hypnosis time. I will better serve clients when appointment times are being kept.

I have some more questions &/or wish to discuss a particular issue. Who should I contact?

Please contact Jeanne Marie at 250-650-5503 or email  with any questions or for more information. I will be more than happy to discuss any questions or your particular problem or needs with you. Please note that when working with clients, I may not be able to take your call immediately, but please do leave a message.

Why learn 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®?

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® can be thought of as anti-virus software for the human mind. It goes in & finds those programs that are holding you back, preventing you from being as happy as you want & neutralizes them. Then you can program yourself for more of what you want. It is taught to you by a teacher who teaches you how to go into hypnosis on your own. You don’t have to tell anyone about your past, problem or change you’d like to make. The work is done completely within yourself.

Hypnosis is the most natural, yet powerful agent for change known to man. Far beyond counselling, advice & coaching, hypnosis is the key to changing ones unwanted feelings & behaviours.

You have everything inside of you to do everything you need to do. Self-hypnosis will help you harness the power of your nonconscious mind & make changes where they matter. It’s a useful skill in all areas of your life & once learned it will last you a lifetime.

When you begin your training in 7th Path® you are going to be in for a surprise. Most people who learn 7th Path® are amazed at how powerful it is & how deeply felt the changes are.

What is 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®?

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is taught to you by a teacher who teaches you how to go into hypnosis on your own. You don’t have to tell anyone about your past, problem or change you’d like to make. The work is done completely within yourself.

7th Path® is a special form of self-hypnosis combining the mind, body & spirit. It encourages you to incorporate your own highest spiritual or philosophical beliefs, inviting wisdom & insight into the process.

The system works to first deprogram your mind, neutralizing those old programs & beliefs that have been holding you back. It finds limiting beliefs & painful emotions from the past which the practitioner may or may not be aware of that are causing problems in his or her life & neutralizes them automatically.

Once some neutralizing, deprograming or ‘emptying of the cup’ has been accomplished the practitioner can then use the system to reprogram themselves to make just about any kind of improvement that they want to make in life. Examples: feeling more confident, having deeper self-respect, feeling happier & more positive, being free from unproductive habits, addictions & compulsions.

Many issues which could only be worked with through counselling can now be helped in the privacy of your own mind.

7th Path® is a very simple two step process that almost anyone can learn to do in a very short period of time. Then when you have learned the basic concepts & suggestions, if you want to, you can go on to learning more advanced techniques. All very powerful tools for healing & change.

The practitioner dedicates time each morning & afternoon to the practice, as well as a short period before going to sleep. People who have experience doing a form of meditation will notice right away that this is a profound leap forward compared to both classical forms of meditation & self-hypnosis. It combines hypnosis, meditation & spirituality. If you are not a ‘spiritual’ person that is alright, you can still benefit a great deal from the practice.

How is 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® different from all the others?

One of the problems with other forms of self hypnosis is that the hypnotic suggestions that you give yourself must go up against years of old programming. The old programming does not want to go & the new suggestions are rejected time & time again. Through many repetitions, the new suggestions are finally accepted – or maybe not even then. Neutralizing the old programming first helps to avoid this & tends to make the new suggestions more powerful. In addition, sometimes, when you remove the old programming you just start to feel better, even without additional hypnotic suggestions.

7th Path® is not done with headphones or reinforcement tapes. The work is done completely within yourself. Once learned you can use it any time, any where.

How can an approach aimed at your mind affect your body?

The body responds physically to thoughts. For example, when we think a frightening thought, we can experience increased heart rate, shortness of breath, ‘butterflies’ in the stomach, muscular rigidity, sweating, shaking & so on. Similarly, when we think a pleasurable thought, we can experience reduced heart rate, deeper breathing, relaxation of muscles & so on. These are our autonomic nervous system (the nonconscious mind) responses that are involuntary, but they can be utilized to promote health. When hypnotized, an individual is very open to suggestions that can enhance positive & diminish negative physical reactions.

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® Training to better an Organization or Work Place.

Empower your employees or organization from within. Barriers to success come in many forms. With increasing pressure on people to deliver results, hypnosis can be the key to improving performance & changing behaviour.

Jeanne Marie invites you to take a modern holistic approach to improving your organization & sustaining its success. The secret to real lasting change is hypnosis. 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is used to address the negative attitudes, thoughts & behaviours that affect performance – it is a way of communicating with the nonconscious to make these changes permanent.

Better people do better business. By training & practicing 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® individuals can neutralize old limiting beliefs before reprogramming themselves for improved mental & physical abilities. Their better health & attitudes will permeate throughout the entire organization, increasing productivity, better moods, focus & greater loyalty.

Stop Smoking

Free Yourself From Smoking Now

Are you ready for your life to be as if you never smoked?

Are you envisioning yourself getting healthier day after day?

One of the keys to your success is your level of commitment & determination to quitting smoking FOR THE LAST TIME!

Smoking is not a logical, rational, conscious act. It is a learned habitual response to stress & nicotine. You cannot undo it with reason or statistics, you need to actually reprogram your mind. Smoking is a habit, habits are regulated by the nonconscious mind. Through hypnosis we can communicate directly with your nonconscious. Hypnosis has been used to help thousands upon thousands of people to gain their freedom & become a non-smoker.

Are you ready to do this now? You are closer to FREEDOM

Common Questions

Commonly Asked Questions

Although hypnosis is the most natural yet powerful agent for change known to man, the work of a hypnotist is currently one of the most misunderstood. There are many myths & misunderstandings about hypnosis. Here are answers to some of the more commonly asked questions:

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a way to access a person’s nonconscious mind directly, where change easily takes place. In the modern world, it may also be thought of as a way to upgrade the software of our own minds, just as we do our phones or computers. Hypnosis is used to change neuro-patterns, such as beliefs or habits, to reprogram or retrain the mind for positive results.

Normally, we are only aware of the thought processes in our conscious mind. The nonconscious mind is the vast part of our psyche that the hypnotist wants to get involved with. The nonconscious mind acts as a store house or an infinite hard drive of information that lets you solve problems, construct sentences or remember things. It puts together plans & ideas & runs them by your conscious mind.

When in hypnosis, the conscious mind (that busy, critical, analytical part of the mind) takes a rest. This allows an optimum state for putting suggestions into the nonconscious mind for the changes you want to make.

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind. Everyone has already experienced hypnosis, by accident or by design. We use this state of mind, unknowingly, all the time. For example, if you have ever watched T.V or a movie & become really absorbed in the program, you were in a trance. This trance is what caused you to not hear your mother calling you until she raised her voice for the third time. Advertisers understand this. They use television programs to induce a hypnotic trance & then provide you hypnotic suggestions, called commercials.

Another common example of this naturally occurring state of hypnosis is when you are driving down a road with your mind focused on some other task, a day dream perhaps. Next thing you know, you have passed your next turn. That is called ‘highway hypnosis’. You have done it literally thousands of times.

What happens during the session?

The initial part of the session is discussing your particular requirements or goals, explaining how hypnosis works and the rest is actually doing the work in hypnosis. The process is explained during your first session & any questions answered before any hypnosis takes place. Your hypnotist knows how to talk with the nonconscious mind & will give you very easy instructions such as imagining or relaxing. As you follow the instructions you’ll enter into a wonderful aware & focused state of hypnosis. Your hypnotist will be assisting as a coach or a teacher. You may be asked to describe images, sensations or sounds as they come to you.

What does hypnosis feel like?

This will differ from person to person. In the words of hypnotist Jason Linett, “You may feel a heavy feeling of relaxation, you may notice a light floating sensation, or you may discover the miraculous sensation that you are just sitting in a chair! Whatever you feel is what you’re supposed to feel. There is not one specific hypnotized feeling.”

Will I be asleep or unconscious?

Hypnosis is not sleep. If your hypnotist says sleep it’s just a prompt to close your eyes & go as deeply relaxed as quickly as you can, but do not go to sleep. In hypnosis, your mind will be active & alert the entire time. It is a heightened state of awareness & your senses are even sharper than usual. You are aware of everything that’s happening around you, it’s much like daydreaming. If anything surprising happened, the protective part of your mind would signal you to respond immediately. People who are hypnotized often talk with the hypnotist & can answer and ask questions.

Can I be hypnotized against my will?

No. It’s a state you go into upon your approval. It requires your willingness & ability to follow a set of simple instructions given by the hypnotist. Therefore, it is your choice whether to go into hypnosis or not.

Can I be made to do something I don’t want to?

Absolutely not. You are fully aware & alert during hypnosis. You know exactly what is going on, therefore, you won’t do anything under hypnosis that conflicts with your moral principles. You are fully in control, so you could never be ‘forced’ to do something against your will. A person will only act upon suggestions that serve them in some way or reinforce an expected behaviour, anything else their non-conscious will just ignore. You cannot be made to reveal anything you wish to keep private. The ‘control’ misconception appears to develop from Stage Hypnosis which is done for entertainment purposes only. Rather than a loss of control, hypnosis is about helping you take back control those parts of your life that don’t have to be out of control anymore.

Will I remember everything?

Some can remember everything that happens when they are in hypnosis, & others have less conscious recall of events. Normally people remember the session, but just like in everyday conversations; a few details may be forgotten. It is also quite usual for the session to feel much shorter than it actually was.

Can I get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis?

No. No one stays hypnotized indefinitely – you will always ‘snap out of it’ within a short time if you want to or need to.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

Anyone of normal intelligence with the motivation, willingness and ability to concentrate on & follow simple instructions can go into hypnosis.

Is it only weak willed people who can be hypnotized?

Not at all, often strong willed & determined people make the best ‘subjects’ because they are generally highly motivated to improve & change their situations. The more intelligent, creative & imaginative a person is, the easier it is for them to be hypnotized. Usually, the biggest reason you cannot be hypnotized is because you simply refuse to allow yourself. Often caused by false beliefs & misconceptions about hypnosis.

Is hypnosis safe?

Yes. To date, no one has been seriously hurt with hypnosis. The hypnotic state occurs naturally for most people. When you read a book or watch a movie, you suspend your tendency to disbelieve while increasing your ability to believe. That is a form of self-hypnosis. You are making what isn’t real, real. So, it makes sense that you need to trust the individual guiding the process. Your hypnotist should be ethical & competent.

Will it work for me?

Hypnosis is the most natural, yet powerful agent for change known to man. Thousands of research studies across a wide range of different issues or challenges have shown hypnosis is highly effective. However, hypnosis is not something that is ‘done’ to you.

It is a two-way process, between the hypnotist & the client. It takes the expertise of the hypnotist combined with your full commitment to resolving your particular issue. Your ability to follow instructions & complete any ‘homework’ set during sessions are essential to the process.

How many sessions will I need?

Most issues that I work with are completed in 1 to 4 sessions, however each client is individual & this would be discussed during your consultation. Stop smoking may be as little 1 or 2 sessions. Learn more.

Do you offer group or individual sessions?

Giving you the best possible service & opportunity to succeed is the priority & therefore we do not offer group work for specific problems with individual clients. Quite simply success rates drop when working with groups because problems are not tackled at an individual level, plus group members can unintentionally sabotage others efforts. Training in 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is the exception, as it is designed to give you the tools to practice self-hypnosis at home.

Is hypnosis expensive?

Persistent problems can cost people thousands of dollars over the years – diet products, quick fix solutions, over the counter remedies, prescriptions, junk food, cigarettes, alcohol & time off work to name just a few. When you consider the annual & lifetime financial, emotional & time costs associated with long-standing issues, your investment in a session of advanced hypnosis is minimal.

Do I need to tell my doctor?

Hypnosis is completely safe for the vast majority of people. However, all hypnosis involving medical conditions, such as managing pain, epilepsy, clinical depression, or any other physical condition will need a doctors referral. This is to ensure that we do not interfere with the work that your doctor is doing with you. With hypnosis, we are able to mask pain, which may interfere with a doctor’s diagnosis. If you want to use hypnosis to help you with a medical condition, give me a call. I know how to set up the referral.

Can children be hypnotized?

Many children make excellent hypnotic subjects, and respond well to hypnotic suggestion for a wide variety of challenges, self-esteem issues, anxiety, behaviour problems. The process must be geared towards the child’s level of understanding & insight abilities. Parental support is very important, however during the hypnosis sessions the parent is not in the office. Parents are supportive & encouraging, but really don’t play any part in the actual hypnosis session itself.
