I am now a Certified Consulting Hypnotist

Hello again!

Over the 3 weekends that I was in Toronto, I completed my certification for Hypnotherapy through the Ontario School of Hypnosis.
I successfully completed the program and now practice as a Certified Consulting Hypnotherapist.

As a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, I can assist clients with smoking cessation, healthy weight loss, fears and phobias, and positive change in their lives.
Here is the photo from our graduation of myself, Georgina Cannon (director and trainer extraordinaire!!) and fellow student Svetlana.

I was amazed just how powerful that the training workshop was and the satisfaction that I feel when I assist clients in making those positive changes in their life. If you are interested in having a consultation and getting more information on how hypnosis can make positive change your life, email me at

Trip to TIFF 2007!

Sorry for the lack of posting over the past few weeks. I returned from my Toronto trip and I haven't stopped since.

In Toronto, I had the opportunity to attend Toronto Film Festival's 10 film premieres over a 4 day period. It was amazing to attend these film premieres and listen to the director's thoughts in Q&A sessions after the films.

Each film that I chose to attend was different, so it is difficult to name my favorite as they each had their interesting feature. I recommend you see the following historically set films:

1. Elizabeth - The Golden Age - Amazing costumes and it is my favorite period of history.
2. Silk - Beautifully crafted film.
3. Death Defying Acts - Guy Pierce as Harry Houdini, a film worth seeing.The photo below is Guy answering questions after the film premiere.

4. Atonement - A beautiful story about how one jealous mistruth severs a couple's true love forever.
5. Sleuth - An interesting 2 man (Jude Law & Michael Caine) film, exclusively set in a 3 room set. Different, but interesting.
Photo is Jude from the Red Carpet Premiere!

Here are a couple more photos I snapped during the festival.

Til next time, smiles,
