I'm Steven White and I want to extend a warm welcome to my private practice of integrated Counselling, Hypnotherapy and Coaching. Horizoncompass is located in Vancouver British Columbia and provides full service counselling, coaching and educational services. I am a certified Counselling Hypnotherapist (CH) Life Coach Practitioner and Educator. I received my training from The Orca Institute and Erickson International.

Member of:  International Association of Counselling Hypnotherapists (IACH)  


I believe each individual has within the resources, insights and answers to solve and overcome personal challenges and issues, which otherwise derail and block achieving life goals and happiness. I also believe no single method, style or program can fit all people. Because the health, therapeutic and learning needs of each individual is so different each person requires a tailor- made and adjustable approach to support their movement towards better health, peace of mind and living. My practice is focused on supporting the ability of each individual to discover his/her own inner resources and resolutions.

I provide integrated counselling, hypnotherapy and lifestyle / executive coaching for individuals and small groups. As a counselling hypnotherapist I offer a safe and confidential environment for people to explore deep personal issues and feelings. As a lifestyle, executive and excellence coach I support athletes and artists, students, business owners and corporate executives to remove the blocks that are getting in the way of their success and achievements.

“My practice focuses on supporting the ability of each individual to discover his/her own inner resources and resolutions. I believe firmly that combining the powers of the conscious and subconscious minds produces insights and breakthroughs that are otherwise impossible to achieve. Hypnosis produces a relaxed and focused state wherein the unconscious and the subconscious parts of our mind work together at the same time and in harmony to deal with deep feelings, diverse concepts, complex ideas and dynamic relationships”

I offer a half-hour consultation at no cost to you so you can meet with me and decide if what I have to offer is appropriate for you.


I work with all types of individuals and many fit into three different classifications: The first are individuals experiencing general dis-ease in their life and are not sure of its cause but certainly know they want something better. Many have faced various degrees of personal, psychological, emotional and learning problems. These individuals are struggling with a particular life event or a variety of issues; some notice how unresolved and past events are having a negative impact on their day- to - day thoughts and behaviors. Often I work with individuals who feel stuck by certain patterns and habits and relationships, Still others search for a deeper understanding of themselves and their role in life. I do not diagnose but provide a safe and welcoming environment for mutual respect and discovery which ultimately leads to change, healing, and positive realignment and direction.

The second are coaching clients, who are largely made up of business executives, business owners and individuals engaged with business startups.They need direct support and help to find ways around specific issues and blocks, have failing inspiration or otherwise need motivational support and are also working on far reaching goals business and career plans. I also coach individuals who are looking for ways to improve their performance and skills in the arts and athletics while looking for creative and dynamic ways to reach beyond their current limits. Generally these people are looking for ways to overcome such things as stage fright, performance choke and anxiety issues.

The third are students and individuals who have particular needs and are facing certain difficulties with school and learning or want to improve their overall skills in communications including writing, reading, conversation and presentation skills. Some need help with school work, some need ESL services while many are trying to find their way back into classrooms after being out of school for years. I have a special group of retired and semi-retired individuals who are pursuing lifelong learning and development opportunities.
