“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 practicing hypnosis. My BIG start on what was to be my Life’s Work, much to my surprise!”
Ines Simpson has worked in many fields from the hospitality industry to commercial fishing on Canada’s west coast. In her 40’s, she started to reevaluate her life and to search for something that would fulfill her and give her life more meaning. Finally, in the late 90s her mother took a hypnotherapy course and a light bulb went on! She pursued a career in hypnosis and became a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists in 2000. By 2005, she was admitted as a faculty member by the National Guild and continues to this day to teach as well as study to add to her vast and growing knowledge of hypnosis.
Ines is now a board certified hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest hypnosis body in the world. Ines was the very first certified instructor for the NGH in western Canada. She owns and operates Advanced Hypnosis and Training Institute in British Columbia. Advanced Hypnosis offers individual services as well as Omni Certified Hypnosis and Simpson Protocol training for hypnotists.
Ines is a great instructor because of her body of knowledge, great skill and ability to connect with people. She was also 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.
Ines Simpson also 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.”
