Hypnosis Rickie

As a hypnotherapist I am committed to providing you with an environment that is conducive to safe, competent and ethical practice. I am accountable for my practice, and act in a manner that is in accordance with my professional responsibility. It is my highest concern to safeguard your trust. The information you share with me will not be revealed without your permission. My goal is to assist you in achieving your optimum level of emotional, physical and spiritual health in situations of normal health, illness, and/or injury.


Healing has always been a part of my life, it is an extension of who I am. I have been a registered nurse since 1985 and am currently using hypnotherapy as a healing modality within the context of nursing. I am a medium who brings loving messages from the unseen world to our world.

I graduated from Coastal Academy of Hypnotic Arts and Science and am both a member of the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association as well as a member of the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia. In addition, I am a member of the ISA (International Spiritualist Alliance) where I am continuously developing the mediumistic gifts within.

I have been employed in a community hospital within the lower mainland since 1991. Much of my time have been spent with clients suffering from cancer, chronic diseases, pain, acute and or chronic infections and more. Currently, I am working with patients at the last part of their lives. It is one of the most gratifying work that I have ever done in my life. It is an honour to journey together with patients and their loved ones.

It was through my own neck injury that I discovered the fascinating world of hypnosis. I used hypnosis rather than medication to manage the severe pain, this helped me to better understand the process of overcoming personal obstacles, to empathize with my clients and to assist them to achieve their highest potential.

I have always seen the unseen world, but without guidance had no way to understand my visions. My hypnotherapy teacher recognized my gifts as a psychic medium, and unlocked the medium in me. I have taken a vow to serve spirit, to bring fourth messages of hope, love and most of all prove survival; prove that life is eternal.

My motto in life is that we are all here for a reason. We are here to fulfill our dreams and realize our highest potential. We can overcome many obstacles if we just allow ourselves to reach within and discover our true self. We can be all that we can be, not only for ourselves but for our families and the society that we share our lives with.

I would love to meet with you, and help you achieve your highest potential in this life- time. It would be an honour to connect you with your loved ones, and facilitate peace, harmony and resolve between both worlds, the seen and the unseen.

Your Mind, Body and Soul working together towards your reaching your highest potential, always.

With Gratitude,
