Doctors Cure – Hypnotherapists Heal

    • Curing and Healing seem similar but there is a basic and legal difference. Curing removes the disease and its symptoms: Healing returns a client to health and completeness. The task of the Consulting Hypnotist is to gently assist their client to reevaluate the Initial Event of their Issue and either eliminate the inappropriate Negative Behavior or replace it with a more appropriate behavior.


    • The ROOT CAUSE of most issues I work with is the feeling or belief that “I’m not good enough!’ This may be stated in various ways, i.e. “I’m not worthy!” “I’m not loveable!” “I’m not wanted!” etc.
    • “I’m not good enough!” stems from one of the four universal hurts: Betrayal – Abandonment – Guilt – Shame.
    • Hypnotherapy can quickly resolve this issue.

Success Stories

Thank you for helping me with my phobia of mice and rats.

Amy – Dartmouth, NS

Roger – I started smoking at 14 and after 34 years I never thought I could stop. Your three session program worked, thank you so much.

Diane – Dartmouth, NS

My nightmares about being abandoned started when I was eight years old. I’m now 24 and I didn’t think they’d ever stop. You did it in just one session. Thank you!

Ron – Halifax, NS

Here is a testimonial of my quitting smoking session with Roger Gumbrill. I had been a smoker for 24 years and had tried everything to stop. I had a friend who went to Roger and after one session was a non-smoker. I went to see Roger and was quite nervous and a bit skeptical but was willing to give it a try! Well after one 90 minute session, I am now smoke free. I did go back for the follow up appointment 72 hours later and Roger put me back in hypnosis and just reinforced that I was a non-smoker and how great it felt to be smoke-free! Seriously, I didn’t think it would work for me but it did and it’s very hard to explain how it worked but it just did!

M.P. – Halifax, NS

I am so happy to be able to tell you that Mary got through her needle without even knowing it was done. I read what you wrote down and tried to copy your tone of voice and I don‘t think I was even able to finish it and it was done. Thank you so much for your insights and abilities. Do you know what she said to me? Now I‘ll be able to get a tattoo! I told her not until she‘s 19 and out of the house!

J.F. – Sackville, NS

I was giving this experience some thought and this is the first time I have experienced this and please relay that I could feel my entire body simply being limp and I could readily see and was going through my experience with my little cat when I was five years old and attempting to move from the country to the Post Office in Bridgewater where I resided for the next 20 years with my family until I married. I could even see the type of doll carriage my sisters and I had in which I could literally make my cat stay in that carriage and I could see the net I would put over the doll carriage so that my little cat could not get out of the carriage. The experience certainly did bring back memories and it seems growing up in those days, life was so very simple (easy for me to say as I was only 5 years old then). While I was going through this experience, I could hear the speaker talking to you all but it’s like I was not there in the room with you all, I was 5 years old and I was looking for my little cat before we moved – awesome experience!

Ann – Nova Scotia Women’s Insurance Association; Halifax, NS

I am a dentist and just treated a patient that I met for the first time today who had done some hypnotherapy with you. I have never had a patient who received such treatment before and I just wanted to tell you how wonderful the appointment went. The patient was able to get the treatment done with no problems whatsoever. Just wanted to touch base and tell you what a great job you did easing not only the patient but me as well, as treating anxious people can be very nerve wracking on caregivers. So thank you for making my Wednesday!

Kyla –Truro, NS

I wanted to update you on my progress. I am now a non-smoker and do not have any cravings to smoke. I think about it and dream that I was smoking but the thought of it goes away as quickly as it came. I’m really happy and it really worked. My whole life has changed really because I am not controlled by the habit. Thank you for your help.
