About Healing Mind Hypnosis

Hi, I’m Roger Gumbrill and I have a hypnosis practice in Tsawwassen BC. I am an active member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) and follow the NGH Code of Ethics and Standards. I served in the military for 26 years as a Combat Engineer, Paratrooper and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) technician. After retiring from the military, I was an Independent Contractor in landmine clearance and EOD work worldwide, specifically South Sudan, Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq. I opened Healing Mind Hypnosis in Dartmouth NS in 2008. In 2016 I moved my practice to Pitt Meadows BC and finally to Tsawwassen. I specialize in hypnosis for smoking.

In order to assist my clients, I have the following qualifications in Hypnosis, and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Why we do the things we do!

Why does a grown man of 52 years still bite his fingernails? Why do some people get so close to success and then 'blow it'? Why are some people afraid of fire while others love to see things burn? The list of physical and emotional issues is seemingly endless.

For the sake of simplicity please accept the fact that each and every one of us has two minds; one is the everyday operating mind which is what you're reading this article with, called the Conscious Mind; the other is the Subconscious Mind. The Subconscious Mind controls such things as breathing, digestion, healing a cut finger and many other functions we are unaware of at the Conscious Level. The role of the Subconscious Mind is to keep you from harm.

Let's start with a question; if you consciously decide to raise your arm what happens? Right, you raise your arm. If you consciously decide to change TV channels what happens? Right again, you reach for the remote and change the channel. If you consciously decide to Stop Smoking what happens? ....OOPS!! Let's try that again, if you consciously decide that you will not be petrified the next time you have to stand in front of a group of people to give a speech, what happens the next time you have to speak in front of an audience?....Hmm!! Why isn't this working? Because, your Subconscious Mind won't let it work. Why not? Because your Subconscious Mind is protecting you. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it?

We always start with the presupposition that: Every Behaviour Has a Positive Intent/Every Symptom is a Solution. At some point in a person's life, an event took place which initiated the conscious behaviour, i.e. nail biting, fear of cats, fear of the dark, shyness, hair pulling, insomnia, flashbacks, allergic reactions, skin disorders etc., etc.; these are the physical and emotional manifestations designed to protect you from a recurrence of the initial event.

The initial event can be anything from childhood ridicule to misguided advice from a parent or teacher to a misunderstood dream to physical and sexual abuse or fear of abandonment. THE LIST OF CAUSES IS VERY LONG!!

The task of the Consulting Hypnotist is to gently assist their client to find and revaluate the initial event and either eliminate the inappropriate conscious response or to replace it with a more appropriate response.
