Episode 7 of Season 2 sees Denise and Martin having their usual weekly catch-up on Zoom. This week they have a lengthy conversation about a recent article on hypnosis and hypnotherapy which featured in The New York Times.   The conversation prompted them to discuss some of the history of hypnosis, covering such things as where the expression 'mesmerised' comes from.  

They also discuss hypnotizability in general and talk about prominent and respected psychiatrist David Spiegel who was referred to in the newspaper article.  

This wide-ranging episode also finds Denise and Martin talking about some medical issues that hypnosis has helped with, including IBS and back problems. They even talk about hypnosis for narcolepsy.   As ever, the conversation goes all over the place!

This podcast is a conversation between two professional friends and colleagues. Denise is a Consulting Hypnotist based in Delaware, USA. Martin is a Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist based in Preston, UK.   So if you have ever wondered what two hypnotherapists would talk about to each other - why not listen in to find out.  

Extra notes:   The word Martin couldn't remember that James Braid tried to popularise is monoideism.
