Kim Palmer, Cht.

MHA Member 2019-5
Phone: 204-291-4227

I have spent many years enhancing my life with natural healing… learning from a variety of sources, traveling as far as Indonesia to meet and learn from a traditional Balinese Shaman. I live the principles of ancient wisdom, enriching life around me, while raising my son in the same tradition these past 20 years. It has served us well in this life, and so the older I get, the more I have felt moved to share my experience with others. I will guide you in the direction towards creating your best self, leaving behind habits that no longer serve you, and uncovering your strongest qualities, some of which you may not have even known you had!


Kim Parke

MHA Member: 2019-1
Phone: (204) 899-0719

Kim has found significant success in her own life using hypnotherapy to resolve various life challenges including using hypnosis to deal with smoking cigarettes years after quitting “the cold turkey way.” Since we now know just how much our emotions affect our behaviors, doesn’t it just make perfect sense to deal with the “root” cause of the behaviour, rather than having to put up with the unwanted behaviour? That’s exactly what hypnosis does for the client, it cleans out the past from the brain, allowing it a new fresh start to begin again, without the heaviness of the past, a clean slate to create a healthier, better future. Hypnosis allows peace to flourish from the inside out into the world.

Marie-Anne Bisson, CHt., Reiki Master and licensed Spiritual Health Coach

MHA Member 2014-2

I want to reach those who feel that traditional treatments have not worked for them or would like hypnotherapy to work in conjunction with traditional treatments and to let them know that past life experiences may have left residual effects in their current lives.

Hypnotherapy can create positive changes on a subconscious level in a relatively short period of time.

Whether clients want to change unwanted habits, release anxieties, discover past lives, or are on a journey of self-discovery, I will help them to explore exactly what it is that they want to achieve. Each session is unique and personalized for their needs.

Sergiu Postica, BA. Psychology, BA. Business, Cht.

MHA Member 2019-6

While taking a psychology class at the University of Winnipeg I came across the information that psychotherapy started with hypnosis. I wanted to try on me and see if it really works, and it worked indeed, which brings me here at this time, to be able to use this healing modality to help others.

I am currently a crisis worker at MacDonald Youth as part of the crisis response team and a volunteer on the Klinic Crisis intervention team dealing with difficulties with coping, traumatic event and conflict.

My goal in life is to make life easier for people who need to make change.
