While living and traveling abroad, I ordered a stage hypnosis training set from a hypnotist in the United States and had it shipped to my beach side condo in Puerto Banús in the south of Spain. I was hooked. Due to my international living, I wasn’t able to launch my career until after I returned to Canada in 2004.
The year I returned, I suffered a horrific motor cycle accident and shattered my pelvic bone. The doctors confirmed that they didn’t know if I would ever walk again. After many hours of reconstructive surgery, I was left in my room recovering on my back with pins holding my lower half in place and a traction bar that went straight through my right knee to hold my joints in place.
Left feeling helpless, the only thing I could do to help myself was to tap into my training and attempt to utilize the power of my subconscious mind to heal my body. It worked.
Much to my doctors amazement and disbelief my body began to repair itself. Through constant mental focus and visualization, I was in my wheelchair within three weeks. I was walking around the hospital ward within one month, checked myself out of the hospital within six weeks and had a full recovery within three months on almost no use of pain medications.
At that point, I knew I had to know more. I did my hypnotherapy certification in Toronto, Ontario which allowed me to become part of the National Guild of Hypnotists, I continued on to become a Certified Master Hypnotist, I went to Las Vegas, Nevada for certification as a Stage Hypnotist while studying under two of the top hypnotists in the world. On returning home, I completed a college diploma in Business Administration and started my career.
