Why Hypnosis?


Hypnosis helps you become aware of how your unconscious thoughts, self-judgments and limiting beliefs are driving your emotions and behaviour. My clients are always amazed by how clearly and calmly they’re able to understand and change. As one client put it after his session with me:

It was possibly the most energizing hour of my life.

Note: Clients’ names have been changed for the sake of confidentiality.


Even though Jim was a well-respected senior executive, he suffered from low self-esteem and  was convinced he was a fraud. He masked his insecurities so well that his constant anxiety was exhausting, and he wanted a break from it.  He discovered that he was a smarter, more confident and a more effective leader when he could easily let go of the misconceptions about himself that he had always tried to hide from others.

Every time we finished a session, it felt like something had shifted and things felt full of possibilities.”

James, a young man in his 30s, spent his young adulthood looking for the love and acceptance he never got when he was growing up. He discovered that he was good enough and could love himself. When he was happy with himself, others could love him too.

I could let go of my anger and was able to forgive my parents.”

Ruth was suffering from inner conflicts that originated in her childhood. Her relationships always ended the same way – she unconsciously sabotaged them, leaving her feeling hopeless about ever finding a life partner.  She left my office excited and empowered to be happy again.

I’m ready in all aspects of my life to be open to a new relationship.

These and many more client stories, from inner conflicts, infertility, IBS, heartbreak, fear, relationship issues and other issues that speak of positive change, moving forward, resilience and restoring unconscious thoughts and feelings to a state of perspective.

Why Ellen?

Hello. I’m a Canadian and I’ve lived in Hong Kong for 30 years.

I first witnessed the power of hypnosis when my brother was recovering from a massive operation to remove his pancreatic cancer. Thanks to hypnosis, he was able to go running again just five days after his operation!

Then I went to a hypnotherapist myself, and within just a few sessions I recovered from 20 years of chronic back pain. So my brother’s experience, and my own, inspired me to train and become certified as a clinical hypnotherapist.

My approach is to help you listen to what your mind, your heart and your whole body are telling you, so that you experience the change you’re seeking. I do this with the utmost respect and compassion for your life experiences, and with trust in your own wisdom and resourcefulness.

My clients tell me they appreciate my kindness and compassion. They feel they can trust me.

If you have a question or you would like to book a session, please contact me.

Here's how I can help

Every thought, idea, emotion and sensation  involve an automatic connection between the mind and the body. This mind-body connection is equally true for pain, illness and injury just as much as for joy, happiness and success.

My work can be grouped into the following general categories even though the mind’s workings cannot always be classified so easily. It is said that our brain contains over 100 billion neurons so there is room for millions of unique combinations. Each one of my clients is proof of that.

General Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can bring tremendous relief to people with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, inner conflicts, self-belief, confidence, relationship problems, obsessions, compulsions, fears, phobias and performance improvement (public speaking, exams, sports, sexual…)

Medical Hypnotherapy

This part is the leading edge of hypnotherapy where physical and often chronic issues, can be resolved by the mind restoring one’s inner balance.  I am particularly passionate about pain management, cancer care, insomnia, infertility, weight management, allergies, gut-focused IBS therapy,  immunity, smoking cessation, pre- and post-surgery care.

I appreciate your interest but will not pressure you.


Hypnotherapy is an amazing way to influence personal change at a very deep level.

Like most of my clients, you want change that is so natural that you don’t even think about it anymore.


But hypnotherapy is not for everybody.


I will be honest with you about whether we can achieve what you want.

I’d love to hear from you!

Take Me to the Unconscious Blog

I want to share my thoughts, my musings and some of my clients’ stories with you here so you have some insight into how inspiring this work is. Hypnotherapy, or hypnosis as it’s also referred to, has an endless bank of amazing and transformative personal stories. In many of these stories, we resolve a specific problem which you may mistake as having a trivial impact on a person’s life. What really happens though is that each change results in a domino effect on a person’s life, relationships and happiness.

In each of these stories, my clients had the courage to take that first step to contact me because they knew they could expect more from their life.
