My name is Teya Graves M.H. C.Ht.
I am a certified Hypnotist, Master Hypnotist and Clinical Hypnotherapist, certified and registered with the IMDHA. (International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association)
To describe me, it would be quite fair to say that I am colourful and not afraid to colour outside of the lines. It is quite a compliment when someone calls me weird. LOL. I enjoy all the quirky aspects of being me, that allows me to be accepting of all people, all emotions and all cultures. I will respectfully help you to achieve your own goals using your own words to guide you, and using my own skills, experiences and opportunities in this interesting life, in which we get to live and share, whenever our paths do cross.
I first became interested in Hypnotherapy over 40 years ago, when I saw the great Reveen doing his amazing, respectful and entertaining stage show. At the end of the show, he told the participants on stage, "You will never again fear heights or flying. You will never have pain in the dentist's chair, and you will be happy in your life." I thought to myself, "I want to do THAT!" Years later, I received my Hypnotherapy training at The Pacific Institute of Advanced Hypnotherapy. My amazing instructor, Sherry Hood, is a respected clinical lecturer in the department of Family Medicine at the University of Alberta and travels internationally in the field of Hypnotherapy.
My Education in Hypnotherapy is ongoing as I have continued my studies in Pain Control for Hypnotherapy, Fear and Phobia Elimination and Hypo-birthing as well as other online courses and training at a hypnotherapy conference in Las Vegas. I have studied various sources of Smoking Cessation training, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Peak Potentials Personal Development Training with accelerated learning techniques for the purpose of helping you to succeed quickly.
I have many other trainings including, Astrology, Numerology, Counselling Skills, Nutrition and Food Allergies, First Aid and Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Training. I have studied, immersed myself and deeply honour a variety of religious and spiritual beliefs including Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheism, Spiritualism, Paganism and First Nations Lakota teachings to name a few. I am more than happy to include your personal spiritual beliefs into your personalized hypnotherapy session, if it is your wish.
I have a lifetime of experiences and knowledge in many areas that may surprise you, including studying food for medicine, gardening, herbs, massage, working with animals, life on a farm, big city life, small northern town life, restaurant work, education, sports, driving motorcycles, and much more. People are often surprised when they tell me something they do, and that their experience is something I have also done. I am open-minded to all cultures, beliefs, dynamics, family and relationship structures and lifestyles and have studied in many areas.
I grew up in an alcoholic home and went through many abusive relationships to match my inner ugly-mirror for many years. I spent many years seeing counselors, psychologists, a psychiatrist and being in 12-Step groups. Finally through mind training, accelerated learning techniques and hypnotherapy I have learned to release many personal attachments and patterns of past pain, dental fear, and even an old smoking addiction. I love the magic and power of the subconscious mind and all that it can do to create patterns of self-harm that can, with guidance in a subconscious state, change to patterns of self-care and ease.
My greatest desire, is to respectfully and nonjudgmentally, help people to be free from the past hurts and limitations. Give me a call. I would love to help you be the best you, that you can imagine for yourself.
Every self-improvement is all about your confidence in whatever it is you desire for yourself. Giving you the tools to do self-hypnosis, allows you to transfer what you learn with me, to other areas of your life.
My clients consistently say that they have noticeable success in 3 sessions or less though occasionally some prefer to do a little more for multiple or complex issues. Some very focused people have even had success with only one session when what they need is very specific, and they come with clear focus and trust.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver to you, the best and fastest service you can imagine.
