Hi! I'm Rebecca
I have spent the last decade caring for people and their heart health in a clinical healthcare setting, and although I loved my job, I knew there was a more impactful way for me to help others.
In 2020/21 I attended the Natural Wellness Academy where I completed the Mind Dynamics Life Coach course which also included an introduction to Hypnotherapy. Here, I become fascinated with the brain, its seemingly endless functions and how much we still don’t know about this magnificently talented organ.
This new found fascination lead me to Robin Popowich and The Academy of Clinical Hypnotherapy, here in Calgary, in 2022, and I became a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Registered with ARCH (Association of Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists) Canada in 2023.
I am a born and raised Calgarian, a massive animal lover and advocate, and I am very passionate about helping people find their way through this chaotic world we call home.
I am looking forward to meeting you!
Common Questions & Answers
Have you ever found yourself at a fork in the road and you aren’t sure what direction to go? Whether it’s deciding to stay in your job, or you have just ended a long term serious relationship, maybe you’re finding it hard to be friends with the same people you have always been friends with….maybe, you feel that you are just different. All of these are very natural thoughts and emotions to have, even though they may feel uncomfortable and foreign to you.
If any of these thoughts or feelings are similar to what you might be experiencing, hypnosis/hypnotherapy may help.
Hypnosis is a natural “trance-like” state that allows you to connect directly to your subconscious mind – something that is not easily done in our day-to-day life. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration and change.
Hypnotherapy, which is using hypnosis in a therapy based manner, addresses the root causes of trauma and works towards resolution by helping people reframe negative thought patterns, limiting self beliefs, releasing emotional blockages, and developing healthy coping mechanisms. Hypnotherapy can empower you to regain control over your life and find healing from within.
“When you become the image of your own imagination, it’s the most powerful thing you could ever do.” – RuPaul Charles
A Clinical Hypnotherapist utilizes the brain’s own ability to rewire, heal and process trauma by incorporating a “hypnotic trance.” This trance bypasses the conscious mind, where your thoughts, opinions and ego are held, and goes directly to the source of all beliefs and behaviours – our subconscious mind.
Clinical Hypnotherapy incorporates a combination of protocols and techniques 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. The hypnotic state not only facilitates healing but does so without retraumatizing.
Hypnotherapy is unregulated in most Canadian provinces, including Alberta. That means that anyone can call themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist. ARCH Canada is the only regulating and certifying body in Canada that ensures its registered members have the required training necessary to not only title themselves a Clinical Hypnotherapist but to also apply the clinical application of hypnosis in therapy.
After what I felt was a fairly successful 10 year marriage ended rather suddenly, I started to have a lot of questions about Who Am I? For the longest time I had identified myself through my marriage and when the precariously built structure of my ‘identity’ came crumbling down alongside with everything I had given to my marriage; my time, my self, my love, I felt it was all for nothing, that my planned out future was no longer, and I felt very lost, confused and scared about what was to come next. I had so many questions: Where do I go? How do I start all over again? Will I be ok?
Many of you may be asking yourselves these very same questions….
The answer to “Will I be OK?” is an astounding YES, and I’ll tell you why. You are not your material things; your home, your car, your Gucci purse. You are not how much you make or what you do, and you are definitely NOT who you love, marry, date or befriend (or don’t love, marry, date or befriend). You are you and you always have been!
The best part about always being you at the core is that you don’t actually lose any pieces of yourself, even if it feels you have. Luckily, your subconscious mind knows you better than you may think and instead of discarding those unneeded or unwanted pieces of you, it just tucked them away for when a time came for you to realize you actually needed and wanted those exact pieces.
So YES, you will be ok. You are whole, and always have been.
