Treatment Philosophy – The Dufour Method
Peter utilizes a unique combination of Advanced Self-Hypnosis, Psychology, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and a life-long belief that “visualization and mental rehearsal results in success and a winning outcome.” Peter utilizes the work of Neuro-scientists and bio-feedback experts in order to accelerate positive changes in attitude, behaviors and self-healing of the Body-Mind System. He believes that all hypnosis is self hypnosis, and that healing is a process of intergrating the Conscious and Subconscious mind toward positive expectancy and outcomes.
