Ericksonian Hypnotherapy/ Psychotherapy
This enables a person to bypass limiting thoughts and experiences, and go into trance, where the resources of the unconscious can be used to bring about the changes desired. Hypnotherapy can be used to increase self-esteem and resourcefulness, to help you achieve your goals, and can be used to solve a wide range of problems.
Beneficial change is often quick, easy and painless, with the advantage of no side effects.
Hypnosis induces an altered state of awareness, commonly known as trance. Trance is a natural state of deep relaxation and concentration.
There are two major factors that are central to Ericksonian hypnotherapy.
1. Each person is a unique individual - therapy is designed to meet the individual's needs, rather than expecting a person to fit into a set formula. Each person has his or her own particular "map the world". The therapist will use the client's own "map" as a basis for problem solving and change.
2 Every person has within himself or herself all the resources and capabilities needed to overcome any problem. The job of the therapist is to enable the person to access and use these resources.
People have far more resources and abilities than they are consciously aware of - sufficient resources to be able to live happy and very satisfying lives. The problem is that these resources are disassociated, separated from their on going experience. It is as if you know what you should do to arrive at a solution to a problem, but are unable to apply the solution. My strategy is to discover what the individual is able to do, and then work out how this can be used with the problem.
This approach is based on the assumption that the unconscious mind can operate in an intelligent and creative way. My task is to guide and supervise the client. The client is offered the opportunity to decide if, and when to respond to the therapist's suggestions.
Trance is only one of the methods of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy/Psychotherapy. There are many approaches to the subconscious mind, which can help clients overcome problems quickly or achieve Personal Growth. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is one of these Methods
It is stressed that hypnotherapy is not a substitute for orthodox medical care for people with medical problems. Patients who are undergoing medical treatment should remain in the care of their doctors whilst undergoing hypnotherapy. If you have a physical problem, please consult your doctor first in case medical attention is necessary.
