Nancy has experience working with a wide variety of clients' life issues, from the simple to the more complex. She has worked with people having concerns such as smoking cessation, weight management, habit changes, phobias, anxieties, depression, childhood abuse or trauma (sexual, physical, and psychological) and disordered eating. She has worked with children as young as 4, and adults as old as 75, and every age group between.
Nancy graduated in 1989 from a 2 year graduate level course at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute. Since then she worked at hospitals, schools and other community institutions. After the requisite number of supervised professional hours of work with clients she became registered with the Canadian Art Therapy Institute and is still a registered member today. Learning hypnosis was the first thing she did to increase her flexibility as a therapist, and add to her skills and tools for change. It seemed like a natural extension to working with images in art therapy, and she had already begun to use guided imagery with many clients
before formally learning hypnosis. She attended many courses and is now a master practitioner in classic hypnosis, as well as in advanced Ericksonian hypnosis. It is the Ericksonian hypnosis which she credits for giving her the boost she needed to attain the high level of skill and expertise as a hypnotherapist she has today. She found that after becoming an NLP practitioner, her overall skill as a therapist and hypnotherapist was further increased and she had more tremendously effective tools to work with and offer to clients. Learning EFT added even more to all of that. In addition to her private practice which she began in 1996, she used to teach courses and workshops at Sheena’s Place, a place for people with eating disorders.
