Anita Lawrence, Vice President/ Ethics Director

Master Clinical Hypnotherapist, Certified Counsellor, Certified Light Therapist, Psychic Intuitive, Medium, Past Life Therapist.
For the first part of my adult life, I was in the healthcare field as a front line patient care technologist in medical imaging.   I left the hospital system after over 25 years, having ended my career with 15 years as a Medical Imaging Director in two major hospitals in Vancouver.   I then had to decide what I wanted to do next, and realized I had chosen my profession because I wanted to help people  on their healing path.    Throughout my time in hospitals, I noticed that while many patients thrived with treatment, others did not, and this discrepancy always intrigued me.  So, it was a natural choice for me to delve into the WHY and look at well care rather that sick care.
It has been a fascinating journey, including my training in the art of hypnosis.    I had the honour and privilege of being tutored, mentored and befriended by the late Di Cherry.   It was Di who dubbed me a multi-dimensional  therapist because I do so many forms of therapy.     Along with the above-mentioned therapies, I also use EFT – Emotional Freedom Therapy, Therapeutic Touch, Sound Therapy and Quantum Field healing.   I have studied Hakomi Mind/Body Therapy, TAT, Reiki, Colour Therapy, Meditation, Light Therapy and  Mediumship at Arthur Findlay Spiritualist College in Stanstead, England.  It’s been quite a paradigm shift  from the “healthcare model” to the “wellness model” and I have loved every step along the way.
My philosophy and approach is quite simple…… help the client get to the root of their issue, get them to agree to take responsibility for making changes, then give them new tools, insights and assistance to do so.
My Practice is located in Tsawassen (Delta), BC.
