Golden Buddha

Havening & Hypnotherapy




I am here to help you navigate through the parts of life where you could benefit from additional support. To help you rediscover your most resilient self and to learn ways to help you stay at the top of your game. When you need to rely on and tap into these reserves, they will be there for you.


The more you engage with this type of self care, the more resilient you will become.


The more resilient you become, the more capable you are of handling the challenges life places in your path.

  • Are you feeling stressed, anxious, tired, frustrated or overwhelmed?
  • Perhaps you’re having trouble thinking clearly or sleeping peacefully?
  • You might be in a position that requires you to be responsible for others as well as yourself? Cumulative Stress can take its toll. It creeps up slowly, oftentimes without us even realizing that we have reached a tipping point until we are in crisis.

You’re at the right place.

  • There are times where the past gets in the way of being present in the way we would like to be. We may have traumatic memories that we’re unable to move beyond, developed fears or phobias or have limiting beliefs that keep us stuck. The work we do together can help you create the changes that will allow you to enjoy being back in the drivers seat of your life. Challenges happen in our day to day lives. The tools you learn will help you throughout your entire life.

Change doesn’t have to be painful and difficult. It can be gentle, self directed and hopeful; leaving you feeling empowered, resourceful and at peace.

  • You may be doing really well at managing all that life places in your path, but realize that you’re running at maximum output most of the time.
  • How do you squeeze in enough time for self care? What if you could learn a simple set of self help tools that you could take along with you everywhere you go? What if you could use this simple set of self care tools in the few minutes here and there in between your other duties and responsibilities? What if you could use these tools with your kids to help them manage their stress and overwhelm? What if these tools could also benefit others who were sharing their overwhelm with you in hope that you could help them?


Golden Buddha Havening and Hypnotherapy is a system for helping you manage life stressors and to become as resilient as you can be.

The story of the Golden Buddha

In 1955 a group of monks in Thailand were given the incredibly challenging task of relocating a monumental statue of a cherished Buddha to make room for a new highway.

While attempting to lift the colossal sculpture from its pedestal, the ropes securing it snapped under the immense weight. The precious Buddha fell to the ground hitting hard and shattering away small bits of its plaster coating. Upon close inspection of the damaged areas, a curious golden reflection could be seen shining through the thick layers of stucco. The tenacious monks carefully started chipping away the dense shell determined to free the hidden treasure. To their amazement, this labour of love revealed a solid Golden Buddha that had been safely hidden away for many, many years.

The story goes that close to two hundred years prior to discovering this amazing treasure, it had been completely covered over with layers of stucco and coloured glass to conceal it’s true value. The caretakers had masterfully disguised their precious idol to prevent it from being looted during an attack on their temple. The secret of the plaster statue was accidentally revealed when it fell to the ground during the move. 

By falling to the ground the Golden Buddha was finally set free to fully embody its magnificence, true brilliance and infinite worth.

Let the transformation begin!
