Ottawa Hypnosis

About Us

We have been providing counselling, hypnotherapy and mediation services since 1979. Our private practice moved to Ottawa in 1983. For more information please see our qualifications pages.

Our two locations are conveniently located on Bank St., in Old Ottawa South, and near Hunt Club West and Highway # 416, in Nepean. Both locations are in warm and calming settings in order to facilitate and enhance healing and recovery by our clients.

We offer all of our services to clients in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, including Nepean, Kanata, Gatineau, Manotick, Barrhaven, Orleans, Almonte and Carleton Place.

Some of our counselling and some of our mediation services are performed over the phone, over the internet or by fax on a world-wide basis. Please call Richard at (613) 726-3636 for details on these extended services.

Richard is available at the Bank Street office on Mondays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Richard is available at the Nepean office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday until 3 p.m.

Usually clients book one week ahead of time but some emergency appointments can be booked immediately.
