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

MHA Member 2014-2

Email: thedoorway2014@gmail.com

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.
