Arne Pedersen, RCCH, CHT

Hypnotherapist, Energy Healer, Mindfulness and Meditation Instructor, and Spiritual Teacher

Specializing in support for Anxiety, Self Esteem, and Depression

Hi, my name is Arne Pedersen.

I’m a Hypnotherapist, energy healer, mindfulness/spiritual teacher, and love helping people.

And I practice what I teach.

You see, I’ve been there myself, struggling to overcome very difficult life circumstances. It was painful to realize just how much my self sabotaging beliefs and behaviours held me back from achieving my dreams and causing me years of suffering with failed attempts at money, relationships and happiness.

Back then, I found myself unconsciously arranging my life around fears I had no idea how to deal with.

And because the human body is so connected to the mind and it’s emotions, this fearful resisting of life led to almost 15 years of painful muscle spasms, insomnia, joint injuries, inflammation and chronic pain because my body was always incredibly tense and not able to heal.

The energy I was using to manage my negative emotions and physical pain completely sabotaged me from working towards what I actually wanted.

I’ll be honest, it took me about ten years into my healing journey to start getting consistent positive results, and I finally realized that it really didn’t need to take this long to heal my self sabotaging beliefs and behaviours!

However, as life has a habit of doing, my healing path led me to connect with the most amazing people and life experiences along the way. These healers in meditation, mindfulness, energy healing, and hypnotherapy are what motivated me to become a therapist in these same modalities with a deep excitement to help others heal through their challenges to experience the life they desire!

Why did I become a therapist?

My core motivation for becoming a therapist is that I can’t bear the thought of people giving up on themselves like I did on myself. I remember the deep shame and self judgement that I beat myself up with for many years. I want to share a story with you from my past to express that life is just too short to quit our dreams.

In my early 20’s I had a self sabotaging pattern to quit things that mattered because fears overwhelmed me. There was one unfinished dream I want to share that changed me forever.

I dreamt of making bass fishing videos and becoming a professional guide and tournament fisherman. I bought the highest quality filming gear I could manage, and even an underwater camera (which was very high tech and expensive at the time!) I hired a friend to do the filming, and I got incredible footage with the intention to send it to an editing company for post-production. But I only got so far because I quit when anxiety and fears of putting myself out there with the next steps overwhelmed me with the negative voice in my head.

So those tapes, and my dreams, went into a box for many many years.

About 8 years ago I opened this box and felt the sadness, the shame and the pain of not following through on yet another dream, that when I started meant more to me than anything else! I pulled out my fishing log book where I had meticulously wrote every detail of every time I went bass fishing over about a 20 year period remembering how I used to study bass in every way I could to become a better fisherman.

I then lit a fire, and went through each page of my 700-1000 fishing entries over the years, remembering each and every one of these experiences. I remembered how they gave me something meaningful and worth while at a time when life was very difficult for me. I thanked bass fishing for saving my life at the time, because when I was younger, bass fishing was the only thing that took me out of the anxiety and emotional pain I felt for so many years. I blessed the memories, each page one at a time, and said goodbye as I let the fire take them away. Then I burned the video tapes, all filled with incredible instructional and exciting fishing footage. It wasn’t very environmental to burn them, but that is what I did. I thanked them for the life, passion and dreams they gifted me when my photographer friend and I made them.

When I set these items free into the flames, tears of sadness fell from my face. Yet, at the same time, I felt a sense of closure and self forgiveness. This filled my heart with gratitude and peace!

Even though I was no longer passionate about fishing, I made a vow to myself on that day, to NEVER EVER be standing over a box of another unfinished dream and have to sift through all the shame and regrets that come from not following through with it!

I’m happy to report, from that day on I have honoured that personal agreement.

Life is too short to be standing in front of boxes of regrets. I have new dreams now, helping people find and experience their highest potential in themselves and their relationships. I help people to align with who they really are on the inside to explore, uncover, and express the lost or hidden parts of their amazingness. By supporting clients to create a sense self acceptance, self love, and self confidence, their next steps in life become clear with purposeful flow.

My training, memberships & designations:

  • Horizon School of Hypnotherapy – Certified Hypnotherapist IMDHA CHt.
  • Association of Registered Clinical Hypnotherapists of Canada – Registered Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist (RCCH)
  • Canadian Association of Counselling Hypnotherapists and Educators – Registered Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist (RCCH)
  • Two years of in-depth Energy Healing training from the Chelaume Healing Arts Centre

Are we the right fit? Maybe!

When I first connect with a potential client I always ask what their belief systems are because I work best with spiritual people.

If you describe your beliefs with words like:

  • Universe
  • Spirit
  • Angels/Guides
  • Faith
  • Flow
  • God
  • Higher Self
  • Soul Purpose
  • Buddha Nature
  • Authentic Self
  • Channeling
  • Past Lives
  • Energy
  • Source
  • Creator

… and are willing to venture through your fears to learn to nurture, cultivate, and follow your unique light of who you are beneath any false ego perceptions and limiting beliefs, then we are most likely a good fit!

The reality is, when it comes to helping my clients through the modalities I use, my training and experience can only take me so far with connecting you to your fullest potential. This is why I combine intuition & spiritual guidance to open to the best path for your growth.

What does intuitive spiritual guidance look like?

Before you come in for a session, I stand in the middle of my office and ask that all my personal baggage be put aside for the session. I literally I imagine hanging it up on a hook. I then cleanse my energy from head to toe by channeling bright energy through my body. When I feel clear, I set the intention to wear the role of the professional therapist, spending a few moments with what it means to be entrusted to guide people to become the best version of themselves.

During this process, I also connect to my guides: Owl (the light of my spirit), Bear (my power/strength animal to ground me), Laird (youth, vitality and enthusiasm), Billy Goat (playfulness), and Doreen (unconditional love), and ask them to help support my clients needs in the session. I then connect to my higher self and the higher self of my client to open intuitive connection and flow.

I ask that we are both able to communicate clearly and easily with each other, and to see them as their full spiritual light and potential to guide me with helping them to achieve their goals in a way that is aligned with their life purpose.

I’ve spent many years implementing this spiritual practice with my clients and it has always led to very productive and meaningful healing, ah-ha moments, and deep transformation during these sessions.

Afterwards, clients share just how powerful, fitting, or insightful the session was, where I happened to say the exact thing, or guide them to the exact place exactly when they needed it, often when it wasn’t even something we talked about prior to the session!

I know that the spiritual intention/connection with the client I did before I saw them was what allowed this amazing wisdom, insight and flow to be channeled!

I’ve come to know & trust that everything that’s needed to guide us to harmony is here in the moment if we are willing, open, and trust that the Universe knows best!

The more I fall back into my heart and trust the inner guidance that comes to me during sessions, the more life unfolds in the most amazing ways where miracles become a regular thing!

With the combination of my training, experience, and willingness to trust spirit guidance, my clients undergo incredible transformations in their goals and capacity to cultivate true happiness and joy….and I get to be a part of their journey through the therapy process as they share their challenges, progress, and successes with me… Life is such a gift!

My Unique Way Of Working With Clients

Before I see you for a consultation or a session

I stand in the middle of my office and ask that all my personal baggage be put aside for the session. I literally imagine hanging the role of my personal self up on a hook like it is a jacket! I then use my mind and imagination to cleanse my energy field from head to toe by channeling universe energy through my body. When I feel clear, I make an intention to wear the role of the professional therapist; spending a few moments with what it means to be entrusted to guide people to become the best version of themselves.

During this process, I also connect to my guides: Owl (the light of my spirit), Bear (my power/ strength animal to ground me), Laird (youth, vitality and enthusiasm), Billy Goat (inner kid playfulness), and Doreen (unconditional love), and ask them to support me to be the best therapist I can be for my client in the session. I then connect to my Higher Self and the Higher Self of my client for the session and ask that we are both able to easily and clearly communicate with each other, and that I am guided to support their goals in ways that are most aligned with their life purpose.

Trust in the process

I’ve spent many years implementing this spiritual practice into my therapy work and it has always led to extremely dynamic healing, ah-ha’s and transformation through these sessions. Therapy is a process, and if you are open, willing, and commit yourself to step through fears to create healthy changes, you will get results!

Often clients share with me just how powerful, fitting, or insightful a session we just did was, that I happened to say the exact thing, or guide them to the exact place when they needed it, often when it wasn’t even something we talked about prior to the session!

I’ve come to know & trust that everything that’s needed to reorient us back to harmony is here in the moment if we are willing, open, and trust the guidance our heart has waiting for us. The more I fall back into my heart and trust the inner guidance that comes to me during our sessions, the more life unfolds in the most amazing ways where miracles become a regular thing!

With the combination of my training in hypnotherapy, energy healing, meditation, life experience, and willingness to trust my heart and spirit as they guide me, the clients I help undergo meaningful transformations in their self confidence, happiness, and ability to achieve their goals.

About Awareness In Health

Awareness In Health is about reorienting our focus away from negative lack based thinking back to a healthy and balanced state of mind, which will allow the natural blueprint of health, harmony and wisdom that we all have within our hearts, to simply become unobstructed and freed to then express its natural state of joy and happiness through our experiences.

At Awareness In Health we believe the key to our Happiness is within. We’re holding the key within our desires to live a joyful life, and all we have to do is place this key into our heart to cultivate and unlock this happiness that is waiting for us within.

At Awareness In Health, we hold the key that fits the lock (or key hole) within our hearts, where by simply focusing within with self acceptance and unconditional love, the light of our natural state of joy and happiness can be released!

Awareness In Health emphasizes the importance of placing our focus within our heart to access the intrinsic wisdom of our natural state of health, harmony, and joy. Once we realize that allowing our attention to focus on negative thinking, resistance to the way things are, impatience, and worry is what is blocking our joy, we can then train ourselves into a new way of thinking that will simply allow our natural state of happiness and fulfillment to express itself.

At Awareness In Health, we know that the only thing that is holding us back from joy and happiness is from allowing our attention, energy and focus to be on negative thinking, worry, doubts and fears. All the happiness, joy and fulfillment we could ever desire is within us now and always will be. All we have to do to reconnect to it is to discontinue the habits from the past that have been blocking us from seeing it.

The Awareness In Health Logo Design

People often ask about the wisdom behind or for a description about the Awareness In Health logo design. These are my thoughts around how the logo design came together.

Arne Pedersen • Awareness In Health Online Therapy specializing in support for Anxiety, Self Esteem, Depression

When we are not focusing on our internal wisdom/instruction manual within our heart, instead looking/seeking for happiness outside ourselves, how could we ever find it! And that is like misplacing our car keys inside our house, but insisting to go outside to look for them. We simply will never find them that way!

When our eyes are looking outside ourselves for ourself that is already within, we cannot ever see if by looking away. We will only see projections of unhappiness being created for the SOUL purpose of the stress to motivate us to finally look within where the whole point is, and our only true point of power.

“Every wound carries the seed of our greatest strengths!”

If you do this inner growth work and cultivate these seeds with love and willingness, there WILL come a day where you remember something that happened in the past that was so un-bearable, un-healable or un-forgivable, with the sudden feeling that the painful space it once held inside you is now at peace, and filled with such joy and gratitude for the realization that: “If this experience never occurred I wouldn’t have evolved into the amazing happy person I have become!” On this day, you are truly free! – Arne Pedersen
