High Performance Coaching to help you

NLP is one of the fastest growing Coaching Methodologies – 

How will a one on one sessions help me?
Dr. Richard Bandler’s famous insight : “People don’t stay the same, people either get better or they get worse”. Helping you identify the core values and beliefs that may have served those patterns and shifting strategies to make changes can make those changes quickly and relatively easily. What is often surprising is we don’t need to dig into the old wounds to examine all the debris. Most often we simply study your strategies. Are they working for you? Most probably they are. They are getting you results! The question is, are they the results you want, need or even find helpful, today.

One on One: In the privacy of our offices in Burnaby, we schedule appointments with you at your convenience

Telephone: Consultations are a great help in getting clarity on what the problem is, and how we can help you with it.

Skype Sessions: Work perfectly for distance support and we work with people all over the world in this manner.

Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) provide a powerful combination of techniques and methodologies to help you resolve the issues and difficulties in your life. This combination of approaches is particularly useful as it allows us to target the changes, with small adjustments as we progress, generally it’s just a few sessions and you have learned a brand new skill.

Working with you in a very direct way, focusing on how the patterns of behaviour, beliefs, and thought processes manifest themselves and are represented makes the time we spend together efficient.  We then use the information to effect re-patterning solutions. This approach we believe builds flexibility in thinking, emotional, mental and physical processes and helps overcome automated behaviours that stop people from achieving their goals.

How long will my sessions last?

We have found that we tend to see clients 3-4 sessions for most general issues, however we consult individually with clients for the most appropriate timing solution. We can generally accommodate your time requirements with a little advance notice.

What if I don’t live close to you?

We have a number of clients who  fly into Vancouver and work with us over a short period of time (see breakthroughs). We can also work with you on the internet (Skype) and by phone, wherever you are situated. Please ask for details.

What is Hypnotherapy?

A Hypnotherapist is a skilled and trained helping professional guiding you to use your own powerful mind to increase motivation or change behaviour patterns by inducing a hypnotic or trance state. Sessions with a Hypnotherapist are called Hypnotherapy.

What is Hypnosis?

You could say Hypnosis is a naturally occurring altered state of consciousness in which the critical faculty of the brain is bypassed so new and acceptable selective thinking may be established. Simply put, the reasoning, evaluating, judging part of your mind (conscious) is bypassed. Which is in fact what we are subject to all of the time.

Hypnosis allows the critical faculty of the mind to be bypassed, and specific thoughts/suggestions can be accepted in the subconscious where they can propel the client toward a desired goal or change behaviour in a positive and permanent way.

Can I be directed towards thoughts or suggestions I don’t want?

No, this isn’t possible, and even while we watch individuals in stage shows, perform all manner of strange tasks, they are fully aware and have given their permission to the hypnotist to go ahead and give suggestions to their unconscious to behave in such a way for a short period of time. The conscious mind would truly never allow you to be directed towards something you didn’t want or went against your own moral code of ethics.

Every time the brain creates a new pattern in thinking you are learning, every time you learn something new your brain creates a new synaptic connection, and you are expanding your mind. When we rehash old patterns over and over, we are not learning, we are essentially standing still, firing the same button over and over, and getting the same result, while perhaps expecting something different!

These are just some of the problems we help people find valued solutions for.

Gastroparesis or bloating during recovery



Eating Disorders: A Guide to Medical Care and Complications   Dr. Mehler

Page 111 – 113, review Bloating:

“With pure food restriction, once a weight loss of approximately 10-20 pounds occurs, there is almost universal development of gastro issues.

This refers to the delayed emptying of the stomach, bloating is the main symptom, and it may be severe and uncomfortable.  

Stir Fry

(The recommended tests to ensure there are no additional issues – require fasting and delay recovery further )

Abdominal X-Ray, is recommended 

Foods 003 (1)
Rich in Omega’s

” The bloating can be worsened by a high-fiber diet, such as the vegetarian diet that many of these patients often resort to, to treat their slow gastrointestinal transit, or by increasing a fiber-based diet  or use of laxatives. Once this state has developed the reflux, nausea, bloating and even vomiting can occur and it’s no longer self induced, it’s happening as a condition of the gut. 

“Heartburn may occur too, as a result of acidic reflex in the stomach…

Fruits 015
Fresh Fruit, perfect source of Glucose

“Although the bloating improves with weight restoration, improvement often takes 4-6 months and even as long as  a year to be fully recovered, with the tummy having no bloating.

Therefore it is crucial to offer reassurance to these patients and instruct them to avoid legume type foods, which promote gas and distention, as well as excessive fiber or bran products which induce similar symptoms. This will enable them to understand that their symptoms  will pass with time and that they are not “causing” the pain by eating. Likewise, patients should be in formed that refusal to eat and regain normal weight will only delay the improvement in their symptoms. 

Useful approaches to this problem specifically in patients recovering from anorexia include the following: 

  • 1: Liquid food supplements, as half of the daily calories (Smoothies) 
  • 2: Gastric emptying of liquids is unimpeded by the gastric issues with solid foods
  • 3: Use liquid food sources earlier in the meal, so these are in the tummy before solid foods, (ie: Soups and Stews) 
  • 4: Keep the food intake to multiple small meals and often, 6-7 times a day, and start the food intake daily within 30 minutes of getting up
  • We are bringing the system back on line, it’s going to take time. If you find your inner coach is taking you over to raw foods, or off proteins, get back on track
  • Use a food journal, not to count calories or anything like that, but to ensure you are getting enough protein in daily.
  • It’s easy to get off track with this, and suddenly stuff is happening and when you look back, “Ah, there, no protein today”

Gastroparesis is a disease of the muscles of the stomach or the nerves controlling the muscles that causes the muscles to stop working. Gastroparesis results in inadequate grinding of food by the stomach, and poor emptying of food from the stomach into the intestine. Gastroparesis induced by weight loss will generally improve with weight restoration. This, even severe bloating initially complained of, which will often present in a patient from eating an adequate meal, and progressively improves for patients over time.

A significant improvement often occurs with a weight gain of 10-15 pounds and in general largely resolves completely with weight gain back to 80-90 percent of ideal body weight. 

(Each time there is restricting of foods the patient will re-experience the same bloating symptoms as the first weeks in recovery – so the FASTING for any treatments will create a setback) 

Remember when you are first in recovery eating much more salmon & eggs – This is protein and will give you less gas and bloating than raw veggies, salads etc. Here a food journal helps you look back to days when the body was doing great. Colour code the food journal, perhaps PINK for positive days, and GREEN for gassy days; etc.

Any use of substance or behaviour that is compulsive and is damaging to the person using it. 


What type of substance?

  • How often do you use it?
  • How much is consumed?
  • Alone or with others?
  • How intense is the experience? Until you are drunk, pass out, black out?
  • Until you pass out from vomiting? 

Your commitment must start with an understanding you want to live differently. You are the only one that can decide this. No assurances from others – that have changed their path or altered their behaviours will make up for a lack of commitment in yourself. It must be 110% I will give my all, because I am done with living this way. 

Even though you may be making this commitment in a foggy state of mind, the deeper part of you, struggling, knows this is what it wants. 

Predictive Model:  The Nature of the behaviour Defines the Problem

  • Start with reduction of use, make this an easy win, just 2 glasses a night and alternate with 8 ounce of water, for a week, even on the weekends, keep to your commitment
  • Exercise – + water increases the cellular flush from the system, reduce the use of other addictive patterns and behaviours, change breaks addiction in half. 
  • Increase the protein,
  • Add Vit B/C Complex 100, xs 3 a day
  • Add in Omega 3 – 4500 2 xs a day + GABA 500mg 2xs a day

Beliefs and behaviours change:

  •                   How are you feeling ? and the next day, reducing use to 1 glass + water
  •                   Reducing the intensity of use and frequency
  •                   What type of drinking have you been witness to in your life? 
  •                   Relationships – currently are they based in the consumptive use of alcohol?

 The deeper self:

  • What’s important to you Right Now?
  • What do you want to achieve with your life?
  • What are your success’s from the past/ achievements/goals completed? 
Women & Girls 001
I can do this

Clearing Toxic relationships – relationships with others may be around the use of alcohol, and even though you may use more than others right now,

When you stop completely, they will experience a pulling back – they do this, even though you don’t. They don’t want the reflection of

Sobriety when you are in recovery. Expect some relationships will change. When they do, allow for the shift into a more insular life for a short time

Sober Living  – the quality of exceptional living  

  • How will you know when you are in recovery?  – When you notice you are not “thinking about it” every moment of the day
  • When your thoughts are more in line with your goals and life style
  • When you are in place with what you want, and are achieving it without the need for distractions through addictions
  • Life choices and styles are less rigid, more fluid, relationships are much easier
  • The ones that are more challenging, you easily allow to slip away, moving into 2nd or 3rd position
  • You allow your emotions instead of trying to stop, suppress or use a substance to distract you

Plan to commit 3 months, 90 days to this, at the completion of this time, a review with another is needed. Someone that supports your recovery fully. Not someone encouraging you drink with them again, or lets go get ice cream. This is a lifestyle change, with choices that support a healthy life.

You  may slip, if you do, if you get convinced by another to try something, stay in first position, where you have more control over your behaviours. This is not the time to slip out of your body and “oh they just wanted me to join in”. You can’t afford this. Alcohol is your weakness and you made it this way. You can never allow it the power over your life again, nor give that power to another human to convince you to just “try it”.

A great way around this kind of pressure, is use your olfactory system, – SMELL it, it’s every bit as enjoyable, and you don’t have to take it into your body.
