Hypnotherapy - Dreamwork - Meditation
We are conscious mind (ego) and unconscious mind for the most part. The conscious mind learns and makes corrections, adapting to new environments, cultures and situations. Life generally flows along as one year leads into the next.
It's when strong changes occur in the outer or inner world, that the conscious mind needs help. It can be as simple as meditation, changing environments, eating differently, or in some cases, medication for temporary help.
Some areas where hypnotherapy can help:
- eating and diet
- sex drive and libido
Typical first session:
- Bring your dreams to your first appointment with Cameron.
- Cameron will use hypnotherapy (Cameron is a certified Ericksonian Hypnotherapist) and may use a combination of dreamwork and mindfulness to forge a stronger bond between your subconscious mind and your conscious mind.
- Four or more sessions are recommended.*
- You may ask Cameron to create a custom-made audio for you to listen to between sessions.
First session $160, two hours
Next and subsequent sessions $120, 1-1.5 hours. Additional $25 per 15 minute segment beyond 1.5 hours. Cash or bank transfer.
Begin by setting up your first appointment with Cameron in his Kamloops studio. Sessions can also be offered virtually, audio or video.
Dreams are the way your subconscious mind communicates with your conscious mind. Because the information is one-way, and in 'first-person-present-tense', it's necessary for the conscious mind to interpret the meaning, and integrate the knowledge so that both are working together. In ancient times, dreams were listened to and often interpreted by Shamen so that one could live more harmoniously within a world inhabited by animals and people. Thus people had guardian animals, just as they hunted, planted and gathered in tune with the seasons and the cosmos.
Today, we have created sophisticated shelters, communication and systems where food is sent to central locations, and we travel for the most part, on paved highways, ships and planes. Yet, our inner world of dreams has changed little, it still sends us messages filled with symbols, much the same way our ancestors received them.
Just as the ancients did, when we interpret the symbology of our dreams, we are brought closer and more in harmony with the living world. We quickly realize the seemingly random images and events that are drawn from the subtle background by our subconscious mind give powerful guidance to our path. Recurring dreams, for example, are wanting to be integrated, and when they are, they begin to shift, often disappearing once assimilated.
Whatever issue you are wanting to change, likely has several dreams that are linked to it. Interpreting the dreams in this context can begin to bring about resolution and integration.
Fees: the same as for hypnotherapy
Meditation has ancient roots; people found that sitting in stillness brought them closer to their environment and helped them adapt to, and weather change. Ancient times were fraught with difficulties and meditation was a proven way to keep a clear mind when things got crazy. Today, things don't get crazy...right? More than ever, we need a balanced approach to a multitude of challenges that occur, even more so than in the distant past.
Meditation became like a religion over the centuries, perhaps like you, I have wandered the world and visited thousands of sacred sights and stood in awe at images of The Buddha, an early teacher of meditation, already very old when he was born.
Meditation today, is a practice where you choose 10 to 30 minutes daily, to follow your breath in and out, while you sit on a chair or cushion, simply listening to the world around you. The name for this style is Vipassana, which is an ancient title for "seeing reality as it truly is", not a reality constructed and covered with layers of meaning by your conscious mind. Have you ever noticed that when sitting still, your conscious mind is bombarding you with images, lists, things to do, conversations you have had, songs, sensations, etc etc. This is normal, this is what happens from the time you awaken until you sleep, meditation pulls you out of this flow for 10 to 30 minutes, where you become an observer, not a swimmer. Too simple to be powerful, right? Yet, when you give your mind this brief period of observation, the answers to life's challenges become clearer, more 'doable'.
Ready to give it a try? You can do this on your own, with a group, making it a morning practice, or in the evening, or at lunch time, whenever! If you need a little encouragement, and coaching, Cameron can give you that guidance, and help you advance, especially when your conscious mind says, "this isn't working, I still feel the same." There are literally a million or more people meditating all over the world, at any given moment, and that is not just in 'exotic' countries. Download a simple meditation app called 'insight timer' and you will see where others who have the app are meditating, you will be surprised.
Fees: 2 hours of discussion and mediation instruction $100.
* individual results vary from person to person. These are average guidelines, your progress may be slower or faster.
Journey with Cameron
Hypnotherapy - meditation - dreamwork
I believe in tangible results, from the first session, you should feel that you are on a new more authentic path
"I have been to many counsellors but although they give me useful tools, there is so much resistance, that the tools become ineffective. Like a pill, I may feel different for awhile, but the environment I am in doesn't seem to change. I just become numb and have a feeling of endless sameness."
Cameron is a certified Ericksonian Hypnotherapist, combining dreamwork and psychotherapy with trance, to assist the unfolding of consciousness into the eternal now, where lasting change occurs.
