Meet André



Hello everyone!

Here is the time to tell you more about myself and what brought me to hypnotherapy.

I must first mention that I am French-Canadian born in Québec city. I now live in the beautiful region of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. I love the outdoors, appreciate the arts and enjoy travelling. Exercising on a regular basis is something I consider important. Also important is having great friends from whom I enjoy their company.

I received my education in French until I graduated in 1981 from Laval University, with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Contributing to my bilingualism, I pursued other university studies in Halifax and Toronto. Most of my career has been in management followed by a ten year co-ownership of a farming and logging business near the city of Ottawa.

I was first introduced to hypnosis during a stay in Europe with a friend of mine who has been a hypnotherapist for multiple years. Being totally fascinated by the subject, I quickly realized how hypnotherapy can be beneficial in changing for the best people’s lives. It is then that I made the decision to pursue a new career.

To become a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I completed my studies at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in New Mexico, one of the best schools in the world. Tim Simmerman, the owner of the school acted as my mentor during my studies. He was himself a student of Gil Boyne, an American pioneer in modern hypnotherapy. Since my graduation, I completed many other specialized workshops.

My mission is to help clients to improve their lives, to get them from where they are to where they want to be.

I truly encourage you to learn more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy by reading the information on this website.
