Why Reclaim Your Free Spirit?
Kristen A. Hemming
CHt, MEd, RP
If you look at the definition of free spirit in the dictionary, it says an independent or uninhibited person. For me, being a free spirit are those things, but the deeper meaning for me is feeling safe enough to speak my mind without caring that my opinion may be different from others. That I do not take ownership of others views or opinions of me. That I am comfortable in my own body and my appearance.
I was free spirited as a child, which was a point of contention for my mother. Often, the arguments were so bad between the two of us, she would toss up her hands exasperated, and say "I'm the one that wanted the free spirit". As I grew up, I learned what was expected because I wanted to be the good daughter. As time went on, my free spirited nature began to fade replaced by conforming to those around me. I lost my voice, was bullied, and began to believe other's opinions of me which created a lot of anxiety and low self esteem.
It wasn't until I started hypnotherapy training back in 2011 that things began to change. When I completed the training in 2012, I was a different person. I reconnected to my free spirited self and I haven't looked back.
I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist. I hold three hypnotherapy certifications from one of the top hypnotherapy schools in Canada and have been certified by the International Medical & Dental Hypnotherapy Association and the International Association of Counsellors & Therapists.
I also hold a Master degree in Education. Prior to starting my business in 2014, I advised university students (ages 18 to 26 years old) on coping strategies to manage stress and anxiety in a professional programs setting for close to ten years.

She makes you feel very comfortable and is very easy to talk to. You don't feel you are being rushed through your session." Client C.A.

I am truyl amazed at the outcomes and insight I receive. That's the straight goods! I see subtle but definite changes in my everday decision making and I attribute much of these changes in my everyday decision making and I attribute much of these changes to the hypnotherapy.
