Denise Trudeau, Certified Hypnotherapist

Denise is an expert transformational coach, functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner, and clinical hypnotherapist.

She specializes in anti-anxiety, stress management, addictions, fears, and pain management techniques that she successfully teaches her clients to use.

Utilizing the latest empirically-based research in functional nutrition, neuroscience, and mind/body medicine, she shows you how to use your mind to rewire your brain and change habituated unconscious patterns more quickly than you ever imagined possible.

All of Denise’s clients learn a rapid form of self-hypnosis and transformation to reinforce and continue making changes long after the end of their sessions.

Denise has held executive-level positions in corporate America in Silicon Valley and internationally for 25 years. After her son was born, she decided she wanted to “jump off the wheel” so she went back to school and trained as a professional transformational coach, functional medicine practitioner, and eating psychology coach.

She founded a functional medicine and transformational coaching firm focused on professional working adults where she and her clients found success in overcoming many of their personal challenges around mindset, personal development, habit change, and “the Big 5”; hormones, mood, energy, digestion, and weight challenges.

While the majority of her clients found lasting success, close to 30% were not able to create or sustain lasting change and she wanted to understand why that might be and what other modalities might be available to help her clients finally overcome the obstacles and resistance that held them back.

She found her answers in hypnotherapy (personally addressing her own stress, weight and migraines challenges) and decided to return to school again to add this important tool to her toolkit. Now she’s able to combine mind/body psychology, functional medicine, and clinical hypnotherapy and her clients are exceeding their highest expectations.
