“I first hypnotized someone at the age of ten. My brother, Johan, decided to get a book on hypnosis and he used me as his “subject.” Johan made me think that I was glued to the wall and convinced me I had purple polka dots on my hands. I was so intrigued by the possibilities that I talked my best friend into spending many fun (and interesting!) afternoons learning and practising hypnosis. My BIG start on what was to be my Life’s Work, much to my surprise!”
Hi, my name is Ines Simpson and here’s a little Obligatory Bio about me.
Prior to Hypnosis, I worked in many fields from the hospitality industry to commercial fishing on Canada’s west coast. In my 40’s, I started to reevaluate my life and to search for something that would fulfil me and hopefully give my life more meaning. In the late 90s my mother took a hypnotherapy course (by mistake – she thought it was Pschyic event – and I guess in a way it was! ) She told me about it and a light bulb went on! And I reconnected to Hypnosis.
From then on I was committed. It seemed to be my thing. Something I could truly commit to.
I avidly (fanatically) pursued a career in hypnosis and became a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists in 2000. By 2005, I was admitted as a faculty member by the National Guild and continues to this day to teach as well as study to add to my knowledge of hypnosis. A filed that is never static and there is always more to learn.
I am a Board-Certified hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest hypnosis body in the world. I was, in fact, the very first certified instructor for the NGH in western Canada.
I have my own business Advanced Hypnosis and Training Institute in British Columbia. Advanced Hypnosis offers individual services as well as Mentoring to Full Hypnosis Certification and Simpson Protocol training for hypnotists.
I was inducted in 2012 to the NGH’s Order of Braid in recognition of service to professional hypnotism. Each hypnotist inducted to the Order of Braid have enriched the lives of others and have made a significant contribution to the hypnosis profession.
Also in 2012, I received the Hallmark Award- Top Rated Instructor by Student Evaluation Award from the NGH. And in 2014 became the first instructor of Jerry Kein’s Omni Hypnosis program in Canada. (Jerry Kein was my Mentor and Hero as a Hypnotist- if you haven’t heard of him – look him up – really!)
I also developed and created the Simpson Protocol, the only way known today to effectively communicate with hypnosis clients in the Esdaile State and beyond. For the first time, the hypnotist can converse with the client’s deepest mind to learn what the true issues are and to direct it to do what is needed to achieve the best results possible. The Esdaile State is also the launching pad into higher and deeper states of hypnosis.
“Ines Simpson is a very respected hypnotist and lecturer on the Esdaile State. [S]he is widely regarded as one of the top experts in the world. I came away impressed with her professional expertise, but also with her character. She never hesitates to say “I don’t know” or “Not proven yet.” And THAT level of humility and honesty is not always present in world-class experts.” – H. Larry Elman
Ines is a great instructor because of her body of knowledge, great skill and ability to connect with people. Mike Flynn
