About Daniel DesLauriers
Daniel DesLauriers D.hyp (MIAPH) has trained with the United Kingdom's largest and most successful hypnotherapy organization, the International Association of Pure Hypnoanalysts (IAPH) based in Cambridge, UK. It is also the largest Analytical Hypnotherapy organization in the world.
Daniel's interest in hypnotherapy develloped as a result of being diagnosed with a life-long illness that left him fascinated by the mind-body relationship and how it affects our health and everyday lives. Inspired by the work and personal story of Milton Erickson, a hypnotherapist and psychiatrist whose own success at using the mind to heal himself from polio paralysis led Daniel on a journey to find the best training available in the field of hypnotherapy.
Daniel trained in conventional hypnotherapy, known as suggestion therapy, but was left disillusioned. “I have never been comfortable with the idea of putting ideas into peoples minds, I was headstrong in the belief that if given the right tools and therapeutic atmosphere that a person could heal themselves”, and so Daniel continued his search looking for a training institute that matched his beliefs.
That search ended when he found the IAPH. “I knew immediately after reading the description of the course material that my search was over. Here was an organization of people who practiced what I had been looking for, a non-directive process where the client is in essence healing themselves, permanently and effectively with only a little help from the therapist.”
Daniel's final straw of absolute belief in the training offered by the IAPH came when he underwent his own personal analysis with a qualified therapist in the organization. “It all makes sense on paper, A+B=C, but it's when you experience it yourself that you build a passion for it. Releasing anxiety through this process has been one of the most amazing things I have ever done. I never would have pegged myself as an overly anxious person, but once released the difference was obvious and permanent!”
Daniel's personal history of overcoming illness, his non-judgmental and kind manner, coupled with an innate ability to make those around him feel at ease has made Daniel a well sought after therapist.
I came to Daniel to help me with a psychosomatic illness that triggered severe social anxiety disorder after having tried many other forms of therapy.
Daniel's a very skilled hypnotherapist and he created a safe and compassionate space which allowed me to go to the far recesses of my mind without judgement or ridicule.
And because I felt safe and in control even in this relaxed state, I was able to make sense of my pyschosomatic symptoms and irrational behaviour for the first time.
After each sessions , I felt more empowered, physically lighter, happier and more self-forgiving.
These cathartic pure hypnoanalysis sessions gave me back my power and restored my self-confidence in my ability to self-heal.
More importantly, my pyschosomatic symptoms were greatly reduced and my social anxiety has dissipated as a result of this therapy.
I highly recommend this form of therapy to anyone who struggles with self-doubt, hidden shame, guilt or any other crippling deep-seated emotions that you suspect is causing a phobia or illness.
I'd even go so far to recommend it to anyone who is seeking to understand him/herself better. The lessons you will learn are invaluable and the healing is profound.
I recently had a series of ten sessions of Purehypnoanalysis with Daniel. The sessions were different than expected and there was no loss of consciousness that one sees in "stage hypnotism". I was conscious at all times and there was no sense of losing control. The process itself brought to the surface many repressed memories and issues and allowed me to deal effectively with them. Purehypnoanalysis has shown me how to make sense of my phobias and has greatly reduced and in most cases eliminated these phobias. I highly would recommend it.
