Sonja brings to her classes a passion for helping people learn not just the skills necessary to become an amazing hypnotherapist but also all the tools necessary to build a successful private practice.

Roger is an avid reader and a pursuer of deeper knowledge who understands the power of language and turning ideas into solutions. As a hypnotherapy instructor he creates a positive, supportive, hands-on and inclusive learning experience tailored to grow your skills and confidence in the class and out. His approach to dynamic learning will allow you to help your clients move beyond their current experiences and perspectives into a more holistic positive view of the self. After a serendipitous encounter with hypnosis in 2012, Roger decided to take his inquisitive mind from passively reading about hypnosis to engaging with the mind and hypnotic applications. By 2015 he was an ARCH Canada Registered Hypnotherapist and in 2016 became an ARCH Canada Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist. He continues to grow his knowledge in all aspects of hypnosis.
