Invest in yourself…and all in a safe, supportive environment designed to support you and your dreams.
Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one’s own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.
Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, substance abuse including tobacco, sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal side effects of pregnancy and chemotherapy.
What to Expect ?
Although there are different techniques, hypnotherapy is generally performed in a calm, therapeutic environment. The therapist will guide you into a relaxed, focused state and ask you to think about experiences and situations in positive ways that can help you change the way you think and behave. Unlike some dramatic portrayals of hypnosis in movies, books, or on stage, you will not be unconscious, asleep, or in any way out of control of yourself. You will hear the therapist’s suggestions, but it is up to you to decide whether or not to act on them.
How Does Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy Work?
Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance gives you all the instant benefits of years of therapy in just one session, by reprogramming the mind.
But there’s something specific going on when you rewire your brain, and it’s connected to your body’s neurons: the basic working units of the brain, designed to transmit information to other nerve cells, muscle, or gland cells.
These neurons form a neural network, or a ‘brain map’ that directs your brain to tell the rest of you what to do, think, and feel.
Studies show that while these neurons control everything about our bodies, we can constantly create new controls through a bodily process called neurogenesis.
And once these new control systems are created, research shows that our brains then treat old neurons that aren’t “plugged into the new network,” like survival of the fittest.
Which means new neurons win.
But once these new control systems are created and plugged in, they need to be told what to do.
These new brain cells receive programming through neuroplasticity — it’s the brain’s ability to create the neural pathways that tell you what to do.
But these pathways must be intentionally set.
Once the old neurons are out, we have to create a roadmap for the new neurons to follow. Research suggests that in remapping, we can improve our choices, create new habits, and even possibly forget old memories.
There is no such thing as being born lucky or more successful in life.
In short, we can literally reprogram who we are on a cellular level, to not just change the flow of abundance, but change our habits, thoughts, and even our characteristics to create and receive abundance naturally.
As a hands-on therapist to my clients, I use Hypnotherapy to unlock the brain’s natural ability and help clients literally rewrite their brains for performance, resolve past issues, and unlock their capacity for abundance.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy in which the person being treated is asked to recall distressing images while generating one of several types of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping.
It is included in several guidelines for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
It was developed by Francine Shapiro in the 1990s and has been controversial, with some critics calling it pseudoscience and there have been ongoing concerns over the quality of evidence, contradictory findings, significant rates of researcher bias. and dropout rates in studies.
The person being treated is asked to recall distressing images while generating one of several types of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping. The 2013 World Health Organization practice guideline says that “Like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a trauma focus, EMDR aims to reduce subjective distress and strengthen adaptive beliefs related to the traumatic event. Unlike CBT with a trauma focus, EMDR does not involve (a) detailed descriptions of the event, (b) direct challenging of beliefs, (c) extended exposure, or (d) homework”.
The proposed mechanisms that underlie eye movements in EMDR therapy are still under investigation and there is as yet no definitive finding. The consensus regarding the underlying biological mechanisms involve the two that have received the most attention and research support: (1) taxing working memory and (2) orienting response/REM sleep.
According to the 2013 World Health Organization practice guideline: “This therapy [EMDR] is based on the idea that negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours are the result of unprocessed memories. The treatment involves standardized procedures that include focusing simultaneously on (a) spontaneous associations of traumatic images, thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations and (b) bilateral stimulation that is most commonly in the form of repeated eye movements.”
Salkovskis in 2002 reported that the eye movement is irrelevant, and that the effectiveness of EMDR was solely due to its having properties similar to CBT, such as desensitization and exposure.
Person Centered Counseling
Person-centered therapy, also known as person-centered psychotherapy, person-centered counseling, client-centered therapy and Rogerian psychotherapy, is a form of psychotherapy developed by psychologist Carl Rogers beginning in the 1940s and extending into the 1980s. Person-centered therapy seeks to facilitate a client’s self-actualizing tendency, “an inbuilt proclivity toward growth and fulfillment”, via acceptance (unconditional positive regard), therapist congruence (genuineness), and empathic understanding.
Person-centered therapy, now considered a founding work in the humanistic school of psychotherapies, began with Carl Rogers, and is recognized as one of the major psychotherapy “schools” (theoretical orientations), along with psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, classical Adlerian psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, existential therapy, and others.
Rogers affirmed individual personal experience as the basis and standard for living and therapeutic effect. Rogers identified six conditions which are needed to produce personality changes in clients: relationship, vulnerability to anxiety (on the part of the client), genuineness (the therapist is truly himself or herself and incorporates some self-disclosure), the client’s perception of the therapist’s genuineness, the therapist’s unconditional positive regard for the client, and accurate empathy. This emphasis contrasts with the dispassionate position which may be intended in other therapies, particularly the more extreme behavioral therapies. Living in the present rather than the past or future, with organismic trust, naturalistic faith in your own thoughts and the accuracy in your feelings, and a responsible acknowledgment of your freedom, with a view toward participating fully in our world, contributing to other peoples’ lives, are hallmarks of Rogers’ person-centered therapy. Rogers also claims that the therapeutic process is essentially the accomplishments made by the client. The client having already progressed further along in their growth and maturation development, only progresses further with the aid of a psychologically favored environment.
Although client-centered therapy has been criticized by behaviorists for lacking structure and by psychoanalysts for actually providing a conditional relationship, it has been shown to be an effective treatment.
Expanding upon Rogers work theorists have since condensed the Six Necessary and Sufficient Conditions into three Core Conditions. It is believed that the most important factor in successful therapy is the relational climate created by the therapist’s attitude to their client. He specified three interrelated core conditions:
Congruence – the willingness to transparently relate to clients without hiding behind a professional or personal facade.
Unconditional positive regard – the therapist offers an acceptance and prizing for their client for who he or she is without conveying disapproving feelings, actions or characteristics and demonstrating a willingness to attentively listen without interruption, judgement or giving advice.
Empathy – the therapist communicates their desire to understand and appreciate their client’s perspective.
Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and wellbeing.
My goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is in alignment with the best version of your self. By applying solution-focused counseling, complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behaviour patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation (like an exam, a move, manifesting your dreams) or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
At my practice, I apply evidence-based therapeutic methods and dynamic-relational counseling to tend to your psyche.
While the psyche is rooted in our internal, non-physical perceptions, it is profoundly intertwined with our somatic experiences; the care of both our mental states and human interactions is fundamental to a healthy relationship with ourselves and others, and an overall wellness in our lives.
I practice from a humanistic approach that is trauma-informed and tailored to each client’s needs. I believe that trauma is a universal human experience that can be complex in nature or characterized by the struggles of daily life. My approach creates a warm, reflective environment where people gain capacity for personal growth and a deeper understanding of human experience. I blend complementary approaches to support clients in living a more value-driven and meaningful life.
I view people holistically. My experience includes 7 years of providing therapeutic services in nonprofit community mental health. I strive to create a nonjudgmental, safe space where people have the capacity to explore their thoughts, feelings, and intuitions in order to overcome life’s obstacles. I take a collaborative, strengths-based approach to therapy and join my clients in their journey to self-discovery.
I also have first hand experience in exploring the complexities of career satisfaction as well as career transition, having originally been educated and practiced as an Naturopathic Doctor for many years prior to becoming a psycho-Hypnotherapist.
Lilianna will coach you, teach you and mentor you, and guide you through powerful and life-changing program with lessons, exercises & activations to help you activate and fully embody your inner power, and supercharge your health, wellness, healing, rejuvenation & wellbeing on all levels of your body, mind & spirit.
Men’s & Women’s Issues
I believe that we all have an innate wisdom and capacity to know the solutions to our problems but we may not be aware of our potential.
In an increasingly challenging world, how does one stay grounded and navigate inner and outer conflict?
I strive to help clients tap into their inner resources to cultivate psychological balance and well-being to address these challenges.

What about confidentiality ?
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with highly sensitive subject matter that is usually not discussed anywhere but the therapist’s office. Every therapist should provide a written copy of their confidential disclosure agreement, and you can expect that what you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone.
What is therapy like ?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. In general, you can expect to discuss the current events happening in your life, your personal history relevant to your issue, and report progress (or any new insights gained) from the previous therapy session.
Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me ?
People have many different motivations for coming to psychotherapy. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks. Therapy can help provide some much needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives.
How can Therapy or Hypnotherapy help me ?
A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:
• Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
• Developing skills for improving your relationships
• Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy
• Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
• Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
• Improving communications and listening skills
• Changing old behaviour patterns and developing new ones
• Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage
• Improving your self-esteem and boosting self-confidence
Do I need therapy ?
Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you’ve faced, there’s nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you’re at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
