What is Hypnotherapy?


Hypnosis involves taking a person into an altered state of consciousness which really involves slowing down your brain waves. When we are awake we are in a Beta state, meaning our brainwaves are active and we feel alert.

If you were to close your eyes, take a couple deep breathes and relax, you would go into an Alpha state.

This is a place of relaxation, no worries, fears or frustrations, heightened Intuition, inspiration, creativity, and inner consciousness. It is a state where it feels as though there is limitless time and space where we have expanded awareness and where we learn more effectively. This is also a light hypnotic, or meditative, state.


Some people may even enter into an even deeper Theta state which is familiar to people as it is the state you pass through right before you fall asleep where you know you are not asleep yet but you may feel as though you are dreaming.

In an Alpha or Theta state, we have access to the Subconscious mind and the subconscious is more receptive. The subconscious mind contains all of our beliefs, our history and is the seat of our creativity and emotions.


Using Hypnotherapy, a client is able to:

  •  Explore and change beliefs

  • Alter behaviors

  • Understand and change the imprint of past experiences

  • Gain insight into an issue

  • Tap into the creative mind and find solutions to problems that were previously elusive

  • Understand where emotions stem from and change how they respond to events

  • Be receptive to suggestions to enhance your well being and health.

Linda Sevilla

My name is Linda Sevilla (previously Campbell), and for over two decades, I've been on a mission: to empower individuals like you to achieve lasting change and personal growth. As a Clinical Counseling Hypnotherapist, educator, and holistic practitioner, I believe in taking a whole-person approach to healing.


Helping People Find Relief:

Since 1999, I've witnessed the transformative power of hypnotherapy firsthand. I've helped countless people overcome challenges like anxiety, depression, phobias, and trauma. My passion lies in uncovering the root causes of these issues, so the results are deep and long-lasting.


Sharing My Knowledge:

In 2004, I founded The Horizon Center School of Hypnotherapy, where I have the privilege of guiding and nurturing the next generation of hypnotherapists. Witnessing my students grow into compassionate and effective practitioners is incredibly rewarding.

Expanding Horizons:

In 2021, along with my husband Ozz, we opened The Ascension Center for Higher Consciousness. Here, we offer a variety of classes designed to help you unlock the power of your subconscious mind. These classes delve into fascinating areas like improving the connection and communication between the conscious and subconscious mind, perceptual bilocation, lucid dreaming, telepathy, psychometry, developing an abundance mindset , manifesting and even maintaining a connection beyond death.


Beyond Hypnotherapy:

My dedication to this field goes beyond individual practice and education. I'm the founder of the Canadian Association of Counseling Hypnotherapists and Educators (CACHE), fostering collaboration and professional development within the hypnotherapy community and I have sat on the board of the Association of Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists (ARCH).

Sharing Insights:

My love for sharing knowledge has made me a sought-after speaker and instructor at hypnotherapy conferences. I've also been featured on over 50 episodes of the talk radio show "Talk It Over," helping to increase public awareness about the power of hypnosis as a healing tool.

A Lifelong Learner:

As a lifelong learner myself, I'm constantly seeking new ways to improve my practice and better support my clients. This journey has led me to explore additional modalities like Medical Intuition, Spiritual Coaching, Sound and Color Healing, Energy Work, Magic (green), Frequencies, Subliminals, Crystals and herbs, and Manifestation techniques.

Aside from being a hypnotherapist, I  also teach PORTAL , am a course creator, love to meditate, am an avid reader, like spending time with my spouse (who is the smartest person I know) and am a doting mommy to two cats.

Let's Connect:

If you're looking for a supportive guide on your journey to healing and growth, I'd love to hear from you.


Below are the pre-suppositions I hold about my clients.

This may give you a sense of what I teach, what I believe, and what I am like as a therapist.



  • People are not broken. Therefore, they do not need to be fixed.

  • We all come into the world perfect—then life happens

  • It’s not the events in our lives that causes us our problems, it is the meaning we attach to them.

  • A person’s behavior (symptoms) always make sense when you understand the context in which they were formed. 

  • People are not their behavior. Accept the person. Change the behavior.

  • There is a positive intention behind every behavior, no matter how dysfunctional it appears from the outside.

  • There is no reality; only perspective.We all have our own unique model of the world. My job is to understand my client’s model and work with it.

  • Everything in our environment is a result of what is in our mind.We are in charge of our own minds; therefore, we are in charge of our results and external circumstances.

  • My client has all of the resources within them that are needed to resolve their symptoms.

  • There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.
