Registered Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist
Squamish in person and online
My name is Larisse Goldstein and I am a Registered Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist, EFT (emotional freedom techniques) and Faster-EFT practitioner with a background in education. In addition to my background as a teacher, my work is informed by my own interest in and study of mindfulness and positive psychology. I use an integrated, solutions focused approach that has proven results aross a wide range of issues and can help you navigate challenges and create beliefs that make it possible for you to experience wellbeing no matter what your circumstances.
I work with individuals who:
are looking for solutions and excited to grow
would like to resolve issues with trauma, stress, phobias, low self esteem, grief and grieving
would like to release negative habits and beliefs and develop positive new ones (ie. smoking or weight loss)
are feeling stuck or confused and looking for support with life transitions and would like to reconnect to what is really important to them and move forward
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that people experience daily, and is nothing like the spell-bound experiences perpetuated by the media. One example is a hypnotic driving trance. Have you ever been behind the wheel and arrived at your destination only to become aware that you have no recollection of the journey? The experience of getting into the car and driving a familiar route is so relaxing that our subconscious takes over and does the work for us. We are in “the zone” wherein we accomplish familiar, everyday activities without thinking.
Hypnotic therapy is this mechanism, simply applied to challenges we face in our lives. We work together to uncover limiting subconscious patterns of thinking — and then change, those patterns by stimulating and affecting the subconscious mind — therefor unlocking your ability to function differently. Some say it feels like becoming “un-stuck.”
Hypnotic coaching sessions run from 1 to 2 hours. We will discuss your goals and anything new in your life, and I will use a variety of hypnotic coaching techniques to help you take advantage of unconscious learning and move towards achieving those goals.
The techniques at my disposal are applicable and useful to almost any issue, both internal — gaining self-awareness and overcoming obstacles within yourself, and external — coping with your environment, past, present, or future.
Here are a few examples of the types of issues I have helped clients overcome:
Personal development, relationships, career development, anxieties, phobias, chronic pain, illness, end-of-life, PTSD and trauma, anger, self-esteem, confidence, smoking cessation, grief, loss, addiction recovery.
I believe that we, as human beings, are amazingly resilient and adaptable. I invite you to come and experience how fun, engaging and inspiring counselling can be!
Sessions may be covered by extended medical insurance providers if your plan covers naturopathic or complementary medicine.
From my clients...
“My work with Larisse got me through some difficult times and made me strong enough to go on and find hope. Larisse worked with a sense of humour and never judged. Even years after our sessions, her encouraging voice has stayed in my head.”
“It doesn’t seem to matter what I present to her, she has different tools to gently shift me out of the place I’m in, and into a state of calm reflection. She is absolutely remarkable. During my journey with Stage IV Cancer, she was present, focused, and deeply empowering.”
“I know that when I work with Larisse I will get results. Larisse has a gift for uncovering issues and beliefs that hold me back — she is thorough, precise, and has helped me to permanently heal and transform my life.”
