Lindy Thomson RCH

Lindy is a seasoned professional in the health and wellness industry, with over 20 years of experience dedicated to empowering individuals. Her journey into the realm of hypnotherapy was sparked by her early exposure to Tony Robbins, courtesy of her parents, which ignited a lifelong passion, fascination, exploration and education in human behaviour and the workings of the body and the mind.  

Her journey took her from the world of physical wellness, where Tony Robbins himself became her client, to a deeper exploration of human behaviour, brain science, personal development and neuroplasticity.  Her interest in Hypnotherapy started with Marisa Peer’s RTT Program and a desire to empower individuals to unlock their full potential, overcome trauma and live better lives.  Knowing the profound effectiveness of Hypnotherapy she wished to explore it on a more neuroscience level leading her to study with Robin Popowich at the Canadian Academy of Clinical Hypnotherapy (CACH) and open her own practice.

With a relentless pursuit of knowledge and dedication, Lindy strives to bring the most up to date science and understanding of the complexities of the brain and how they relate to Clinical Hypnotherapy. Aas both a therapist and Instructor she believes that by understanding the mechanisms behind limiting beliefs, negative thoughts, behaviors and trauma, individuals can embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation.

At CACH, Lindy brings together her wealth of experience and expertise to effectively instruct and equip aspiring Clinical Hypnotherapists with the skills and knowledge needed to make a meaningful impact in the lives of others and enthusiastically embraces the opportunity to bring Canada’s foremost institution for comprehensive and neuroscience-based hypnotherapy training to each student.
