The Hypnotherapist

Edmir Fernandes

I am a mature professional originally from Southeast Brazil. A City called Curitiba. I have been living in Victoria, BC since my arrival in 2001.

I am told by many Clients that I have an incredibly calm manner and soothing voice in and out of hypnosis. I am very passionate and enthusiastic about helping people through their conditions that I can easily go in hypnosis with the client and subconsciously talk to each other.

I, in Brazil, earned my B.Sc. in Biomedicine and worked for about 20 years in the field of public health and toxicology (Clinical, Occupational & Environmental), and also worked extensively coaching and encouraging people to change their lives towards betterment in different scenarios.

I, after my immigration to Canada, worked in private laboratories, and was a researcher at the Biomedical Dept at Uvic.

I worked for a few years as Clinical Data Coordinator, more specifically with cancer clients. When in laboratories in Canada, I worked as Evaluator/Assessor for the Quality Systems for 10 years.

I took further education in the Medical Laboratory Technology to comply with Canadian norms. I, later on, took a program to work in the nursing field in order to help people suffering with dementias and other mental health life-challenges.

I started my Master’s Degree in Counseling and I am very enthusiastic about seeking more pragmatic interaction with my Clients. I found that this interaction with Clinical Hypnotherapy to be more of who I am and what I can do to help my Clients in achieving their goals; so Hypnosis and Clinical Hypnotherapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Neurolinguistic Programming are my goals in life and for good.

I am certified:

* CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy);

* NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) by Achology, The Scotish Academy of Neurolinguistic with Kain Ransey

* DBT – Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, accredited by the International Academy of Therapists, with Elmira Strange, London UK;

* PLRT – Past Life Regression Therapy with Mark Beale;

* Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Sussex Hypnotherapy Center with Daniel Jones;

I am a follower of Alfred Adler; Milton Erickson; Erik Erikson; Carl Jung; Abraham Maslow; Carl Rogers; Ivan Pavlov; Viktor Frankl, and other classics. Carl Rogers is my preferred for by his humane-ability.

His powerful quote is like this — “Growth occurs when individuals confront problems, struggle to master them, and through that struggle develop new aspects of their skills, capacities, views about life.”

Carl Rogers (1902-1987) – Man’s inability to communicate is a result of his failure to listen effectively.

I also am certified in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy with Sussex Hypnotherapy Center, being instructed by Daniel Jones. I am a current enthusiastic practitioner; and I am interested in Neuroplasticity; PTSD; OCDs; Past Life Regression Therapy and Sexology etc.

I am also a fine arts painter for more than 15 years and like to express myself freely through my creative and colorful line of work. My place displays many of my most current artwork, which seem pleasing for many tastes.

“Caminhos da Vida” (Paths of Life)

I am a very friendly and spiritual person, well educated, and committed to my work.

Having my Clients to hold their heads upright and face their new challenges in life is very blessing to me. This is the motivation I seek and give to all I work with – Confidence, Independence, Safety, Personal and Professional Growth, etc.

I welcome all educational and cultural backgrounds and seek for a very positive rapport with you all the time, as this is very important as the foundation of a Therapist-Client relationship.

If you have any questions, please don’t be shy. Just ask.

I am having my clients in a safe, comfortable place, very clean, bright, private and calm. VitalCore is making efforts to follow directions from authorities in re Covid-19.

I am constantly upgrading my website so you are current with my work. My plan, for the near future, is to open an office space in Victoria, BC and have other professionals as well; to make a stronger service alliance.

I can provide you with services in English, Portuguese, French and some Spanish too. I am very open-minded to spiritual concerns, as I was brought up in the foundations of the Spiritism by Allan Kardek, which is recognized as science; thus, my great interest in working with PLRT – Past Life Regression therapy.

I am very knowledgeable and well trained in Compassion, Empathy, Confidentiality, Privacy and Safety. These fields are part of my daily life since a long time ago, and remains current.

I am also well experienced with seniors, because of my professional commitment in caring for them.
