Hypnosis has been recognized and approved by the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association as a valuable therapeutic tool in medicine. Many physicians and dentists use hypnosis to help promote patients’ healing.
More people are finding “do it yourself” ways of improving themselves. They are seeking better physical and mental health and wish a fuller and happier life. Hypnotherapy or hypnosis is one way of achieving better health.
People find hypnosis to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Remember, however, the client's cooperation is essential since all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. All a hypnotherapist does is guide the client in to and out of hypnosis.

Is there some aspect of your life, or how you presently feel, that is not satisfactory? You have within you the resources to eliminate the things that are keeping you stuck. You deserve to have more and feel better. Hypnosis is one of the quickest and most exciting ways to make positive, lasting changes in your life.
Hypnosis is a safe way to achieve success in the following areas:
With hypnosis you can stop ANY tobacco use, including stop smoking. The vast majority of my clients stop their tobacco use or stop smoking in just one session. If necessary, clients are entitled to one free “get back on track” session, during the first year. Free yourself from tobacco use, including stop smoking, without withdrawal or weight gain.
Most cases of being overweight are a result of emotional overeating caused by stress, boredom, anger, loneliness, low self-esteem, etc. Using self-hypnosis can help you uncover the keys to your permanent weight loss without the use of will power or dieting programs.
Anxiety is a form of self protection. Anxiety is caused from worry and fear of future events or worry that something is wrong, or something bad will happen, or from a feeling like you always have to get “It” right. Using self-hypnosis, I will guide you to eliminate the worry and thereby allow you to live your life more fully.
Virtually everyone has a fear of something. Fears can range from a fear of spiders, fear of flying, or public speaking, injections, water, etc. When the fear becomes so severe that it causes tremendous anxiety and therefore interferes with your normal life, it becomes a phobia. It is at this point that we need to seek help. Hypnosis is a rapid, effective, and a safe alternative to medication.
Using self-hypnosis, Dr, Dufour will guide you safely back to the originating event, which most often occurred as a child. Then with adult awareness, you are able to let go of the trauma. In most cases this process can occur in 1 or 2 sessions.
Each year over 20 million Americans experience PTSD as a result of traumatic events. The result of experiencing these events is a negative imprint which is a message that has reached the core of the subconscious mind. The imprint does not need to be logical or sensible in order to affect you. Hypnosis can be used to help you to uncover and eliminate the origin of the event trauma.
Insomnia is the inability to sleep because of stressors or external influences in in your life that disrupt your sleep patterns. Hypnosis will help you relax as you learn to eliminate negative thoughts and emotions that have been depriving you of sound sleep.
Hypnosis is a safe and relaxing way to improve your game, and allow you to be at your best - whatever your game may be. Recreational or professional athletes can benefit from self-hypnosis. It can help you improve your performance and play to your true abilities.
A major cause of low self-esteem comes from past negative comments repeated numerous times. Often these negative comments come from things parents (or some other trusted source) may have said when you were young. Hypnosis can be used to help you recognize and interpret the source of the negative comments from an adult's view point. Once this is done, you will improve your self-esteem.
Sometimes in our lives we develop patterns of activity or behavior that we would call “Bad Habits”. They have been developed through repeated actions over an extended period of time. With the use of self hypnosis you can free yourself from whatever habit you have resolved to eliminate from your life.
