Clinical hypnotherapy was coined and further developed by the American psychiatrist and psychotherapist Milton H. Erickson.
Through various of his brilliant trance techniques, I will guide you into a mentally and physically relaxed state. Your breathing becomes calmer, muscles start to relax, your thought activity decreases and your stress hormone level drops. You are continuously awake in a very particular state of consciousness which we call hypnotic trance.
– the planning functions of your mind start to subside
– a feeling of relaxation and well-being spreads throughout your body mind
– you notice an increased vividness and intensity of your inner experience: It includes vision, hearing, and kinesthetic perception
– you note an increased capacity for creative imagination, insight and intuition
– you get access to levels of perception beyond usual everyday consciousness
– you may have existential experiences of oneness, stillness, peace.
Important: In this state you remain awake, responsive and can still perceive everything around you. You have full control throughout and may decide for yourself, how deep you want to dive.
Why it works:
M.H. Erickson refers to the positive role of the subconscious as: „almost inexhaustible resource for creative self-healing and self-knowledge“.
It is well known that only a smaller part of the mind is conscious and the rest belongs to the subconscious, a huge memory card with a content that remains hidden in our everyday state, while it significantly determines our life and actions. Where triggers from character fixation, early imprints, or trauma define our actions, there are mainly subconscious processes.
An illustrative example: Scientists have found out, that all of our decisions are already determined long before our conscious mind perceives them.
Now you may realize that we need to address your problems at a deeper level than expected. Your hardly used intuitive knowledge about our own strengths, needs and healing impulses lies dormant in your subconscious mind. Therapeutic trance activates these aspects and makes them accessible to you.
