Training and Experience
I believe that it is rare that people are truly passionate and inspired daily by their jobs. When we are fortunate enough to have the opportunity present itself, we have to jump, and I haven't looked back.Jenn
There are many options when it comes to training in hypnosis and hypnotherapy. It was extremely important to me that I receive the best training available and I had the privilege of learning from one of the greatest minds in the field of hypnosis: world-renowned Gerald Kein, director of the Omni Hypnosis Training Center in DeLand, Florida.
Since completing my hypnosis training in 2008, I have not stopped learning and taken many further courses in hypnotic applications.
My Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist training was completed at the Coastal Academy of Hypnotherapy. I am also a Certified Painless Childbirth Specialist, a Certified Hypno-Doula, as well as a Certified HypnoFertility Specialist, having trained with Lynsi Eastburn - a leader in the field of hypnosis for fertility and author of It's Conceivable: Hypnosis for Fertility.
I also had the honour of training as a Certified Mind-Body Fertility Practitioner with James Schwartz, author of the Mind-Body Fertility Connection
As a birth professional, I am proud to have been attending births and offering emotional support to new moms since 1997. I am a DONA trained Doula and completed my Birth Doula Training and Breastfeeding Support course at BC's Douglas College.
I had the privilege of training with Penny Simkin and taking her "When Survivors Give Birth" workshop as well as the Advanced Counselling Skills. Penny has been supporting birthing families since 1968 and is the author of many books & articles as well as a producer of several birth-related videos.
I am a Certified Childbirth Educator and proud to have been the first Hypnobabies Instructor in Canada, a course I've been teaching since 2009.
I served on the Board of Directors of the Doula Services Association of BC from 2010-2012, and have worked at Bloom Community Midwives & Breastfeeding Center.
