Q: What is hypnosis?

A: Hypnosis is a state of focused consciousness. David Prudhomme will assist you in learning how to achieve this state by guiding you into it. Once this has been achieved, you will then receive what are called hypnotic suggestions. These suggestions will enable you to use the power of hypnosis in your life and make the changes you desire. Hypnosis is a tool that can help you, just like it has helped millions of other people to take back control of their lives. Hypnosis helps you change old habits and provides you with motivation to do the things that you may have been putting off. Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses. Hypnosis and self-hypnosis have been shown to be effective in reducing stress and stress-related illnesses. Hypnosis has also been shown to help mothers give birth to their children with little or no pain.

Q: Can I be hypnotized?

A: Of course you can! You already have been. It’s easy to go into hypnosis and it is a normal state of mind that everyone has already experienced. In fact, hypnosis is such a normal state of mind, most people usually don’t even realize that they are hypnotized. Normal, everyday hypnosis occurs when you are driving down the road and lose track of time, or, when you are focusing on a book or television program and you don’t even notice something that is going on around you. When you come in for hypnosis, all you need to do is to be able to follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and you can put the power of hypnosis to work for you. Anyone with the willingness to follow instructions can experience hypnosis and use it to improve his or her life. This includes children and teenagers.
