I offer a number of seminars with my most popular listed below. You can also get a complete list by clicking on the corporate training tab. I also offer one on one personal life coaching and the description is below.

All of my sessions can be delivered one on one or in a group session.

As a certified hypnotherapist and cognitive behavior therapist, I understand how stress causes problems in both the workplace and at home. Everyday, I talk to people who are emotionally and physically drained due to the pressures that life brings.

Emotions like fear, anxiety, anger and resentment account for 80% of all stress. In fact, studies have shown that problems fall into three categories:

1.   TOXIC THINKING: A poor or negative attitude and chronic complaining cause anger and  frustration which in turn leads to a toxic work environment and increased stress.

 2.  PERSONAL & BUSINESS PRESSURES: Deadlines, personal crises, time and money
      problems cause anxiety and depression which in turn leads to increased mistakes,
      absenteeism and ultimately stress.

3.  POOR COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS: Not listening and improper handling of employee situations cause resentment, anger, employee apathy, disgruntlement and yes, even more stress.

In my practice, I help people to cope with stress in the following ways: 1) showing them a different way to think about life including how to recognize and correct irrational thoughts; 2) providing them with the tools to set and achieve realistic goals; and 3) creating an atmosphere of well being by balancing their personal and business lives.

My presentations focus on the individual and how to create a well balanced life so you don’t end up at the bottom of a black hole now knowing how you got there or even how to get back out. They empower people with the tools and skills to create a wonderful and fulfilling life. You will leave revitalized and ready to tackle anything life throws your way.

The following presentations range from one to two hours or half and full day workshops and address the root of life’s problems. Each seminar can stand alone or combine with others depending on the time available and your individual goals for the session. The most requested and most popular sessions all deal with stress and life balance and include the first five. All of these can be customizable to fit your particular objectives. Here are the available seminars:


What if I told you that you could: Produce extraordinary results, have a positive attitude and think differently. Would you be interested? Would you listen? Would you want to? Of course you would. Well, the good news is you can. The fact is we all have that ability in us right now. We just need to understand and apply the proper techniques and strategies to help us all become winners. Empowerment and not willpower is the only answer.

Everyone would love to eliminate bad habits whether that habit is smoking, over eating, procrastination, or any other phobia or negative behaviour in their lives. For some reason they just cannot seem to do it. You see our lives are determined by what we are thinking, what we are listening to and what we are not thinking. If we think negatively, we produce negative results. If we listen to negative ideas, we cannot focus on positive ideas and most importantly. If we are conditioned to feeling inferior or have been constantly told we are failures, we believe this and therefore, cannot be productive. This is why the combination of empowerment and hypnosis is so important. Empowering yourself means taking back control of your life.

I get many calls from people looking for help on a variety of topics from low self-esteem, lack of motivation, stress just to name a few. I have also delivered 100's of seminars to businesses talking to their employees about attitude, motivation and positive thinking.

These have been group presentations for many years and have spoken to thousands of people so now I have decided to take this information and develop a one-on-one personalized six week workshop for adults focused on how to get the most from life. This program is a very intensive program that provides strategies that simply make life better. Besides the one-on-one sessions there are assignments to be completed between sessions.

You will discover: how to think properly, how to change your limiting beliefs, how to identify irrational thoughts, how to program your life for success plus much more. We all need a little help along the way and these seminars do just that. Everyone deserves the best from life and this is the goal of these workshops.

I have taken my most popular and highly impacting sessions and developed an individual 6 session program for adults. They involve the first 10 sessions with 4 being compulsory:


The other 2 are electives and can be chosen from the ones below. There are also a number of other sessions you can take if there is something you find interesting.


The most requested and most popular sessions all deal with stress and life balance and include the first six. All of these can be customizable to fit your particular objectives. Here are the available seminars: 

Ever had an A-HA moment.
You know, when that little voice in your head says...WOW, I never thought about life like that. It doesn't happen very often but when it does, it can change your life. From creating more happiness to eliminating problems, from understanding how our brains work to achieving our life goals, Gary takes his audience on an incredible journey of self discovery by examining the conscious mind and provides strategies that can make our lives better. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it. Gary's message is about creating awareness of our thoughts as this is where it all begins. He says: "When you change the way you think about things, the things you think about change." You will also discover: 

* The most important question you could ever ask yourself.
* The one question to avoid asking because it gets you an answer you do not want to hear.
* The one question to ask yourself so you NEVER make an assumption ever again.
* The greatest gift you can give yourself. 

Ever found  yourself depressed or  anxious and  did not know  how you got there.
This seminar takes the concepts in Conscious Awareness and builds on them by uncovering the most common mental mistakes we all make and then provides strategies to deal with them. You will also discover:

The biggest mental mistake we all make.
* How to change the way you feel about anything.
* How we sabotage our success and end procrastination. 

Ever wonder why we sometimes manage to talk ourselves out of things.
We don't trust our judgment and therefore either procrastinate or ask for advice. We get five different opinions and we are confused and don't know what to do so we do nothing. Our lives are a reflection of our beliefs. These beliefs, usually subconscious, are the cumulative effects of life-long "programming." As a result of this past negative programming, we sometimes think and behave in self-defeating ways. This causes a conflict between our conscious desires and our subconscious beliefs. Imagine being able to change the beliefs that limit you into beliefs that support you quickly and easily. Learn how to reprogram the software of your mind so you can change the printout of your life. This presentation helps us understand and recognize conscious pushback and provides strategies that help us turn procrastination into action. You will also discover:

* The best time to create subconscious change.
* How to harness the power of your subconscious mind.
* The two most powerful words to use.
* How to talk so your subconscious mind will listen. 

Living  in harmony  is  something we all  wish to achieve.
Yet  sometimes  life can  throw  us  something unexpected and  we feel  out of  balance. Time  seems to stand  still and  problems become  insurmountable. Learn strategies that help you deal with the six areas of life balance (work, family, time, money, yourself and your community). Apply the six steps to life balance and create harmony in all areas of your life. Here are the benefits:

The ability to communicate at home or in the workplace

* How we communicate non-verbally.
* The one sure-fire way to diffuse an argument.
* How to recognize deceit.

Most people plan their vacations better than their lives.
They know where they will stay, what attractions they will visit and have a good idea of how much money they will spend. These same people would also like to retire at age 55 but have no idea of how they will do it. They would like to be mortgage free but have no plan to achieve it. This seminar looks at a simple six (6) step approach to life and how some simple adjustments can pay big dividends. You will also discover:

* My six immutable laws of life.
* How to prioritize.
* How to write a life plan.
* The greatest gift you can give yourself.
* How to stop procrastination.

Change can be a very scary thing. Stepping outside your comfort zone and walking into the unknown. As the old cliché goes - The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know. The good news is that it does not have to be that way. Change will make life different but that does not mean it has to be bad or terrible.  It is all about getting used to your “New Normal.” It is not “change” that creates the issue but how you handle the transition period. You will discover:

* How to recognize the danger signals.
* The 3 main elements of the change process.
* How to empower yourself to move forward.
* Simple strategies that will keep you on track.
* How to plan your new future.

8) KIDS & DRUGS (A Parents Guide to Prevention)

4 Important Topics

What Great parents do. Social Psychologists tell us that we are the product of our parents.     They also suggest a number of strategies parents can learn that can help them guide their children through adolescence. This section provides insight into what all great parents can do that provides the optimal environment for a parent child relationship.
Talking with your Kids. Communicating with children can be very difficult. What can you say so they will listen? How can you get them to open up? This section delves into the do's and do not's of effective two way dialogue and gives some insightful ideas to improve communicating with your children.
Developing Good Decision Makers. The Neo Cortex is not fully developed until age 25, so children need guidance when faced with their decision process, otherwise chaos ensues. Children are one decision away from changing their lives.  The 2 most critical aspects of your child's development are covered in this section - Delayed Gratification and a Growth Mindset. These 2 topics alone can make a big difference in your child's life.
DRUGS: What you need to know. This world is a different place to grow up than it was 30 years ago. Drug dealers are at every corner, including the one next to the school your children attend. It is crucial that you understand and recognize the signs of drug use and who better than the RNC or the RCMP. Learn the signs of drug use from the experts and more importantly what you can do to avoid a catastrophe.

Over the next number of years your children will be faced with difficult decisions and their ability to make the right decision will determine whether their road to adulthood will be an easy or difficult one. This is a prevention NOT an intervention program. Both you and your children need some help along the way and this seminar talks about the critical aspects of parenthood. Equip yourself and your children with the tools of success.


Join Gary Summers (CHt.) and Cst. Chad Rogers of the RNC for a very Informative and

thought provoking  2 1/2 hour session. Learn some valuable skills that will help you guide

your child through adolescence. Equip them with the tools necessary for success. Each parent leaves with a 50 page parent manual containing invaluable information that I have collected over the past 15 years from presenting this seminar.

The single biggest asset organizations have is their people and their ability to be effective
. Understand the key components of teamwork through team building exercises that engage people and help them to understand the important elements of good teamwork. Through a series of well crafted games and puzzles everyone becomes engaged to create a total team effort. Learn how to:
Manage expectations.
* Recognize individual efforts.
* Create synergy among everyone.
* Maximize individual strengths.
Become an effective listener.
Draw on individual strengths.

This presentation works well with groups having an off-site and wanting to develop more camaraderie within their organization. Using time tested group exercises participants learn insight into their co-workers personalities and gain valuable knowledge that helps them become better team players. 

Good customer relations are critical to any successful business. Gary has applied his strategies and ideas from his other programs to create 2 dynamic presentations. If you are in the people business, you can benefit from these seminars because Gary says, “People never remember what you said or did but they will always remember how you made them feel.” This is his core message delivered in 2 dynamic keynotes.
