Andrew Gentile

For nearly 20 years I've been using my understanding of the subconscious and the interplay of thoughts, emotions, behaviours and human physiology to help clients understand the root causes of their suffering and to coach them through transforming themselves at the deepest level.

As a Certified Hypnotherapist and Certified Medical Hypnotherapist since 2003, with a B.Sc. in Biochemistry, and an M.Sc. in Environmental Management, I bring a deep body of knowledge and variety of perspectives to help you make the changes you've been seeking.

My studies in urban Permaculture design helped broaden and deepen my understanding the overlaps, parallels and intersections between emotional and ecological health and healing. We are our environment, and our environment is us. Through my work with clients, I've come to keenly understand the influence of the psychological and emotional environments in which we grow up. Culture, religion, financial abundance or scarcity, the mental health and mindset of our parents - these all form parts of our environment and directly influence how we develop our adult assumptions, expectations, attitudes, perceptions, as well as coping and defense mechanisms. My further studies and experiences with nutritional counseling, homeopathy, energy work, mediumship, and shamanic healing have allowed me an incredible flexibility to effectively work with clients of any background or belief system.

My interests, skills, and frameworks span the scientific to the spiritual. I customize my approach with each client to match their needs, desires, values and belief systems to safely and gently gain maximum results in the shortest time possible. I am driven by results and select the most effective techniques available to get clients the breakthroughs they've been looking for.

Finally, it is my great desire to share my understanding of the mind with as many people as possible. Sessions with me are educational and empowering. I find great satisfaction in helping each client better understand the nature of their subconscious mind and how their "problem" is nearly always rooted in some positive intent of the subconscious - usually some outdated desire to protect the self against emotional or physical harm. Often, the understanding that arrives in these pre-hypnosis discussions causes layers of shame and guilt to evaporate as clients learn that some inner part of them has actually been trying to protect them.
