At the age of eight my parents got divorced. It was a devastating time for me. I didn’t know what divorce meant, I didn’t know if I’d ever see my dad again, I didn’t know if my little brother and I would be separated or how my mom would be able to support us by herself. I was terrified!
A few years later I became an alcoholic and drug user. My grades went from straight A’s to F’s. I became involved in some very unhealthy relationships. At the age of 16 I moved out of my mom’s house without even telling her and as a result she disowned me. My life was a wreck!
Then in 1998, at the young age of 18, I stumbled across hypnotherapy. My friend had just returned from a stage hypnosis show and he said to me, “Jennifer, hypnosis is so cool, you have to try it!” At the time I was way too shy to go on stage in front of an audience of people however I was very curious to find out what hypnosis was all about. So I picked up the Yellow Pages book and found a hypnotherapist that I could go see one-on-one. Within one session I went from being super shy to super outgoing. It was incredible! I ended up seeing the hypnotherapist for a total of six sessions and at the end of it she said to me, “There is a hypnotherapy course coming up in a few months, I think you might like it.”
The sessions I had with her made such a profound impact on my life that her recommendation was all it took for me to pick up the phone and call the hypnotherapy school. I registered that day and started the course three months later.
I started my hypnotherapy career with no idea what I was getting into. Throughout the training I was awakened to some simple truths of how the mind works. This is when everything changed for me.
I was able to get my life back under control. No longer did I blame my parents, my teachers, my friends, my classmates, my employers, the economy, the government, etc. for everything that went wrong in my life. I realized that while I was not able to control others, I was able to control myself. And while I was not able to control what went on around me, I was able to control what went on within me. This realization coupled with the skills and tools I learned in my hypnotherapy training was life changing.
I have now spent more than a decade studying human behavior and teaching hypnotherapy. I have a successful private practice and my school is Calgary School of Hypnotherapy (formerly Full Circle Hypnosis). I am the founder of College of Professional Hypnotherapy and Results Therapy International.
I have published two books, “101 Stories That Never Happened: Secrets to a Depression Free Life” and “From Resistance to Results: 7 Keys to Achieving Any Goal.” As well as co-authored the book, “Entrepreneurial Spirits” with Dr. Joe Vitale and John Assaraf (from the movie, “The Secret”). I have also developed my own, extremely powerful, therapeutic technique called the “R2R Process.” It is a fast effective approach to breaking through all emotional issues.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of helping people overcome chronic health conditions, lose weight, stop smoking, conquer depression, overcome insomnia, enhance sports performance, improve relationships, increase financial wealth, and much more.
In my current practice, I specialize in helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation quickly, naturally and without medication. Did you know that depression plays a role in most peoples’ lives? In fact, according to World Health Organization depression is among the leading cause of disability worldwide. It affects over 121 million people and takes the lives of over 850,000 people every year.
Most of my clients have tried everything to feel better but nothing has lasted.
One of my most recent clients said this…
“I was lost and confused with no hope for my future. 6 weeks ago I attempted suicide. My psychiatrist wanted me on medication and offered no hope for a real solution to my problems. After my first session with Jennifer I noticed a remarkable change. Where I was once hopeless and skeptical, I am now open and excited. Within just a few hours Jennifer seemed to understand me like none of my psychologists or psychiatrists ever have, even after years of therapy.”
This fellow found me when nothing else was working. His psychiatrist told him to try slapping himself in the face as a solution to his problem. In fact, most of the people I work with have been to psychologists or counsellors for 10-20 years and yet achieve very little results. These same people experience life changing breakthroughs usually in our first session.
Another client, I recently worked with, overcame 34 years of depression in one single session. Her family was overwhelmed with joy to have their daughter, sister, and cousin back.
What Others in the Medical Community Are Saying About Me…
“Over the course of my career in medicine and psychotherapy I have encountered many mental health practitioners and in my opinion Jennifer is among the best I have known. She has a natural talent and ability that allows her to intuit and identify the core issues underlying people’s complaints, and this coupled with her skill as a therapist provides tremendous benefit to her students and clients alike. I can’t say enough good things about Jennifer as a helping professional and as a teacher.”
