Marie-Anne Bisson, Owner of The Doorway, Offers Bilingual Services Ranging From Hypnotherapy to Reiki


Marie-Anne Bisson, Certified Consulting Hypnotherapist and Reiki Master, grew up in St. Boniface, a french community in Winnipeg, Manitoba. When she opened her business, The Doorway, in 2014, she started receiving requests for French sessions.

Not having used her maternal language consistently, she was reluctant to accept the requests at first. Recognizing the need for this service and to help a wider audience, Marie-Anne pushed past her comfort zone and made her services available in both of Canada’s official languages. Her French clients are spread out from Manitoba, to Quebec and as far-reaching as France. Her services at The Doorway are available in person or online.

Hypnotherapy is a scientifically proven effective therapy that complements our western medicine or care. It creates positive changes on a subconscious level. Marie-Anne Bisson explains that people choose hypnotherapy for various reasons, such as wanting to alleviate stress, change unwanted habits, and conquer fears such as heights, public speaking, etc. They may also be on a spiritual journey and want to explore their soul’s purpose. The reasons are endless. Each session at The Doorway, is unique to each client’s needs or goals. All services are confidential.

Reiki is a hands-on holistic energy transfer technique that aids the body to release blockages, stress, or tension. It promotes healing and health and brings balance to people on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. It’s available for people and their pets through a process called distant Reiki. This technique was part of the Reiki training.

As Marie-Anne Bisson explains, distance has no barriers because we are all energy and interconnected. “I am intuitively guided to where the energy is required and may have messages from Spirit for my clients. They state feeling pulses of energy throughout their bodies or sometimes feel like there was another set of hands on them which felt either very warm or very cool,” explains Marie-Anne.

“Clients may feel more relaxed and grounded, and have more mental clarity and a better, more profound night’s sleep after a session. Reiki does not provide a diagnosis, although I may offer insights I picked up and make common sense suggestions such as drinking more water.”
