Today we will focus on Ericksonian hypnosis, the efficacity of which is now widely recognized. The very definition of hypnosis is tricky to explain!
Some researchers believe it to be an altered state of mind that requires a certain framework, where the hypnotist is the dominant factor. Others believe that hypnotic trances are frequent occurrences, easily induced by the subject himself, and independently of any practitioner.
"Ericksonian hypnosis is a fluid and creative technique, it is a therapeutic art in its own right," says Juliet, psychologist and coach.
Hypnosis allows a better knowledge of yourself and of others. Whether it is used for treatment or for personal development, this method of hypnosis is flexible, gentle and pleasant. It generates rapid, deep and lasting results, whatever the problem.
Who can use hypnosis?
Hypnosis can be effective for children, adolescents and adults alike.
Ericksonian hypnosis can help with;
- Stopping tobacco (stopping smoking)
- Regulatating your weight, weight management
- Improving your ideal concentration for any preparation required for competitions, exams, job interviews, sports competitions and so forth
- Decreasing stress and anxiety (phobias, OCD)
- Developing confidence and self-esteem, managing anxieties, somatic disorders ( bosily disorders or illnesses caused by unhealthy thinking, that are usually out of the patient's control
- Improving sleep quality
… and a lot more!
"I have also chosen hypnosis as a method in the approach to different addictions," says Juliet.
Alcohol, tobacco, different drugs, all modify behavior. Also, sex addictions as well as emotional codependency can all find potential solutions with a therapy of hypnosis.
Ericksonian hypnosis is very gentle and therefore allows you to maintain control during the entire session.
Can everyone be hypnotized?
The answer is simple. It seems to be a resounding "yes!"
About 5% of the population are said to have difficulty reaching a deep level of hypnotic trance. Yet, with the desire to achieve it in a suitable environment and with a serious hypnotist, it can be said that there are very few people. that are impossible to hypnotize.
Is there a more receptive type of person?
It was once thought that gullible, even mildly neurotic individuals, made the best candidates for hypnosis.
This is absolutely incorrect!
In a series of studies carried out continuously since the 1930s in environments as diverse as laboratories or even in the frozen expanses of Antarctica (an interesting example of suggestibility in the absence of sensory stimuli), scientists have discovered just enough to stop them from tearing their hair out!
Gender, intelligence, sanity, and personality traits such as introversion and extroversion, apparently have no relationship to hypnotic suggestibility.
In other words, anyone can use hypnosis.
The advice from Womensdestiny:
The therapy of hypnosis can be viewed as a growth process that allows the patient to heal their past wounds, as well as healing their presnt requirements, within a few sessions.
How to choose your hypnotherapist?
We advise you to choose your practitioner carefully, taking into account the kind of speciality they have, the training they have, and so forth.
Hypnosis is no exception, as is the case with many disciplines, there are always people who improvise themselves as being specialists and that we need to be wary of.
The very important element to take into account when starting therapy will therefore be regarding the important choice of your hypnotherapist. You can also check that the therapist in question is either part of an association or belongs to some kind of professional group.
It is also suggested that you find out about their training and acquired diplomas, as well as their origins.
