In Canada, she began helping friends privately.  Today, she has built her personal interest and natural affinity to help people into a thriving counseling practice and a well-respected Training Institute.

Upon graduating as a clinical hypnotherapist Anny opened her office in Sherwood Park, Alberta, in 1984.

Anny became the Director of the Hypnotism Training Institute of Alberta at the passing of Matt Reiser, and at present time, Anny is the Director of one of the longest established hypnosis and hypnotherapy schools in North America.

A Reiki Master, Anny teaches the four levels of the Usui Method of Natural Healing known to us as Reiki as presently taught in Japan and called Traditional Japanese Reiki as well as Reiki as practiced in North America.  She was formally introduced to Life Force Energy training in Ontario, Canada, in 1976, and was initiated into Reiki in Alberta in March 1992. Anny is grateful to all the Reiki Masters who helped her in her search for the source of the Usui System of Natural Healing known to us as Reiki. 

Anny was initiated as a Reiki Master/Teacher in 1995 and took her Karuna

In May 2006 Anny completed Komyo Reiki Shinpiden given in Edmonton by Reverend Hyakuten Inamoto of the Koato Reiki Kai (Kyoto Center), Japan and is accredited as Shihan/Teacher.

Anny is fluently bilingual in French and English.  Her commitment to life-long learning and the ability to share her growth experience with others has earned her the reputation of one of the most respected and admired hypnotherapists in Canada and abroad.
