Introducing Virginie Desplaces

Certified hypnotist, certified sport hypnotist, NLP, Life Coach,
Reiki Practitioner and transformational workshop leader

I am helping people balance their minds and bodies. Using a unique combination of Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Life Coaching, I am able to help individuals with even the most difficult of issues to create positive and lasting change. My technique helps individuals at all levels of development to improve their quality of life. I facilitate the healing process by removing the unique obstacles that prevent the mind and body from working together to create positive outcomes, regardless of the stage of life, or the age, health, or wealth of the individual. I also use Reiki in my practice. I love giving and receiving Reiki as it gives an incredible feeling of peace, balance and harmony.

I am a certified hypnotist and certified sport hypnotist. I was trained as a Neurolinguistic Hypnotist by Beryl Comar, The Change Associates Dubai with a certification from the National Federation of NeuroLinguistic Psychology, USA and as a Sports Hypnotist by Laura King, the Summit Hypnosis & Wellness center, USA.

I received my NLP certification from the IFHE (Institut Français d’Hypnose Ericksonienne), Paris France. I trained as a Reiki Practitioner with Francis Schumacher of L’atelier de Reiki, Geneva, Switzerland. Isabel Contreras, Life Motivations Geneva certified me as a Heal Your Life® workshop leader. In November 2015, Patricia Crane and Rick Nichols certified as a Heal Your Life® Coach in San Diego, California, USA.

I stay on the cutting edge of positive behaviour modification through research and regularly attendance at continuing education courses in the field of Hypnosis and NLP.

My childhood was spent in the Gulf Region, landing with my parents in Doha, Qatar in 1970, then moving to Kuwait in 1971, then to Abu Dhabi in 1975 and Dubai in 2007.

I also lived in Geneva for a total period of 10 years, giving me the possibility to raise my 2 wonderful daughters in a different culture.

I grew up in an environment of “You can adjust anywhere” with an open mind, without fear and in peace. I learned to live without limits and to think that the differences were an added value to your life history.

And that’s how a child’s expatriate can coach people from all cultures and all walks of life. My work is done in English and French.

I am a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) and the National Federation of NeuroLinguistic Programming (NFNLP), both in the US.


The Tree Of My Life

Today, my life purpose is to open a harmonious and peaceful sanctuary that would integrate a diverse range of Western and Oriental healing practices (hypnosis, sophrology, EFT, traditional chinese medicine, homeopathy, osteopathy, etc.), a book & media library, a comfortable conference area for seminars & workshops, a “naturo-bar” offering healthy food and a spa offering treatments with natural products made in-house.

Thru my personal foundation Shoukran I wish to support projects that improve the lives of people on hearth, in many different ways.
