Frequently Asked Questions

I am interested in getting started. What’s the first step?

The first step is to call me. Let’s talk.

SCHEDULE A FREE CONSULTATION

What do you charge?

I charge $175 CAD + 13% HST per hour

If my hourly fee is prohibitive for you at this time but you are very interested in working with me, please discuss this with me. I do not like to turn people away based on financial restrictions. I am open to discussing how we can work together in a way that is affordable for you.

International clients pay in US dollars and do not pay tax.

In-person session fees are paid in full at the end of the day. I accept cash, cheques, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and e-transfers.

Telephone and Skype clients sign a credit card consent form and prepay $1050.00 CAD (6 hours) 48 hours prior to their session. Clients authorize me to charge their credit card for any additional hours that are incurred in their session. And they understand that 13% HST will be charged to this fee if they are Canadian. (International clients are not subject to tax.) In the event that the session does not equal or exceed 6 hours, I commit to refunding the difference.

What’s your availability?

I usually have a 4-6 week waiting list.

How many sessions are typically needed?

I book everyone two sessions to begin with: the first session ASAP and the second session approximately one month later. I preschedule the second session to help you avoid long wait times, as my schedule fills up very quickly.

After two sessions, we’ll see where you are and what, if anything, is needed.

As you can appreciate, some issues are resolved rapidly, while others take longer.

What is the frequency of sessions?

For Local or Telephone or Skype Clients

I space your CBE sessions approximately one month apart to allow time for your changes to integrate and become a solid aspect of your everyday life. Note: It’s possible to do two sessions back-to-back, or to work faster than one per month. We’ll do whatever works best for you.

For Clients who drive or fly in to work with me

To make the best use of your time, we’ll customize a plan of intense work over the course of several days.

Do you do group sessions?

No. CBE sessions are one-on-one.

How long are sessions?

CBE sessions are completely individualized, open-ended, and usually day-long. I work with one person a day, up to a maximum of 8 hours at a time. My average session is 6 – 6.5 hours. Of course we stop for breaks and food!

Are sessions covered by insurance?

It depends on what your insurance provider requires. Please share this letter with your provider, and they will be able to tell you whether or not you have coverage.. Note: most people pay out of pocket for their sessions.

Insurance Letter

Do you use hypnosis?

No. Core Belief Engineering is an entirely different approach.

CBE sessions aren’t an outside-in approach. They’re not guided visualizations, meditations, or scripts. CBE sessions are individually tailored to you and the issues you’re working on.

As your guide, I don’t install any beliefs or tell you what or how to think.

You remain fully conscious and actively participate in every step of the process.

Can you describe a typical CBE session?
Do you follow up with me?

Absolutely! Approximately three-four weeks after each session, we’ll do a telephone, Skype, or in-person review session to review and celebrate your changes.

Most of my clients find it helpful and supportive that I follow up with them three and six months after their CBE process work. Optional but highly encouraged!

Do you work with physical issues?

Absolutely! One of my passions is helping people resolve the belief systems fuelling or contributing to (or in some cases causing) their physical issues. This will be the subject of future podcasts. Stay tuned!

How long have you been a Core Belief Engineering counselor?

I have been in full-time private practice since 1998. Teaching since 2001. Master Practitioner since 2011.

Where are you located?

My office is located in downtown Oakville, Ontario, Canada (approximately 30-45 minutes west of Toronto and about 40 minutes from Pearson International Airport.) Please note: I also work with people internationally via Skype or telephone.

Address and map

Do you offer telephone or Skype sessions?

Absolutely! Please note: The suitability of telephone or Skype sessions is determined in the initial consultation prior to booking. Some issues are best suited to in-person work.

Telephone and Skype clients sign a credit card consent form and prepay $1050.00 CAD (6 hours) 48 hours prior to their session. Clients authorize me to charge their credit card for any additional hours that are incurred in their session. And they understand that 13% HST will be charged to this fee if they are Canadian. (International clients are not subject to tax.) In the event that the session does not equal or exceed 6 hours, I commit to refunding the difference.

Do you work with children?

Absolutely! I feel honoured and privileged to work with children who’re able to articulate their feelings. Typically 7 or 8 years of age is the youngest. Of course, children’s sessions are absolutely different from adult sessions. They’re usually done sitting on the floor through drawing or playing with toys. Children’s sessions are generally 30-60 minutes in length. In-person only.

What is your success rate?

I’ve never formally tracked my success rate. However, because I take the time to do a thorough initial consultation prior to working with anyone, and because I only work with people I believe I can help, my success rate is very high.

What results do you get with people?

Helping my clients achieve the results they’re after is my focus and goal. My success rate is very high because I only work with people I believe I can help, and because Core Belief Engineering is an incredibly effective transformational tool.

CBE actually helps people change the inner workings of their minds. When parts are re-engineered, transformation takes place so readily and completely that it’s very common for clients to forget why they ever came to see me. When reminded of their presenting problem in their follow-up review session, they often laugh: “Was that me?” When parts are re-engineered, they are re-engineered. The original source of the trigger is gone. And a new, positive, supportive perspective has taken its place, fueled by your own empowering core beliefs.

When asked about their results in general, most of my clients report feeling

  • calmer and more peaceful
  • increased confidence
  • more whole and connected to themselves
  • increased self-worth
  • more conscious freedom to choose how to respond in a given situation, as opposed to reacting or being triggered
  • more present and able to just be

When asked about their specific, individual results, most of my clients report that their presenting problem has been resolved.

How do I convey what it feels like for Marie to replace living with constant self-doubt and second-guessing with living with self-trust, decisiveness, and inner resourcefulness?  She says, “I’m dancing with the flow of life now. I trust myself. I trust that I can handle stuff, and I do handle stuff, and that reinforces my trust in myself. It’s a new, positive cycle.”

Can words do justice to describe what it feels like for Richard to go from feeling unworthy to truly feeling worthy? Richard says, “My opinion of myself is correct now. I’m not pulling against myself anymore. That inner conflict is gone. I’m just me now, with more peace of mind. It sounds funny, but I can just sit on a chair and just sit there. Just be. I’ve never just sat before. I was always jumping around in my head and jumping from one thought to the next. Now I can just sit.”

Resolving inner conflicts, re-engineering limiting core beliefs, updating your parts, and returning your mind to your own intrinsic truths and knowings places your adult, Conscious Mind in the driver’s seat of your mind. So you can live “by design not by default.” So all of you can be on the same page. Inner divisiveness gives way to connection, wholeness, and stability. Where you used to feel kidnapped by self-sabotage, you now enjoy the empowerment of clear consciousness, emotional control, and clarity of thought. You feel deeply connected to yourself, less concerned about the opinions of other people, and more present in your everyday life.

Do you offer a guarantee?

No. What I do guarantee, however, is that I will do everything I can to help you make the changes you want to make.
