Hypnosis used in coaching or therapy does not pursue the same goal as the hypnosis you might see in the movies. And, contrary to the image it has on screen, there is nothing frightening about it.
Ericksonian hypnosis deactivates the left side of the brain, i.e. the conscious, rational, logical and verbal side, and activates the right side of the brain. People who practice relaxation or meditation are familiar with the very pleasant modified state of consciousness and relaxation.
More specifically, I help you to relax; when you meditate, do yoga or when you relax along a riverside, you have nothing else to do but let yourself go to the sound of my voice.
Hypnosis works hand in hand with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), an excellent communication technique.
NLP and Ericksonian hypnosis are tools that, if the patient wishes, I can use in coaching and short therapy.
To find out more about this method, sign up for a session to acquire the proper tools to help you understand this concept.
Ericksonian hypnosis works well for tobacco, alcohol and drug abuse as well as for stress, anxiety, phobia, insomnia, migraines, back pain, somatisations and anything that is psychosomatic or psychic, i.e. disorders that are not mechanical or physical physiological but psychosomatic and psychological, such as depression, culpability and bereavement, inhibition, sexual problems, allergies, asthma, eczema and discomfort.
Each individual experiences a conscious hypnotic state several times a day. When you leave the present, when, for example, your head is in the clouds, or when watching a movie, you lose the notion of time and space, or when driving a vehicle and when the perception of time appears to be altered, as in the realisation, “Time seemed to fly by!”, or when you put your keys down, you were conscious, but you can't find them because a part of you was not conscious, since you have no conscious memory of where you put them! The hypnosis state is perfectly natural. The technique lies in voluntarily invoking it.
No. If you decide to use hypnosis, what happens is you can fall into a receptive mode, you let go and experience deep relaxation, you listen to my voice; it is relaxation but it is not sleep.
When you are in a state of hypnosis, you gain self-control because this modified state of consciousness allows you to increase tenfold your creativity, your capacity for assimilation and to manage your emotions more effectively.
We are susceptible to influence when we place ourselves in a submissive position and place another person in a dominant position, which often arrives in daily life, in relations with employers, teachers, parents, etc. That is why the hypnotherapist, who adheres to a code of ethics, assumes the lower position and establishes safety valves. Choose your therapist based on your feelings and trust your intuition, as each individual is responsible for his or herself, and make your choices consciously!
A hypnotic state is a very natural state. The person is relaxed, such as during a massage. The person inevitably attains his or her natural state. If you are very tired and fall asleep during the session, I will wake you and you can finish your nap later at home.
A deep hypnotic state can be disquieting for the person experiencing it, but it has no relationship with the effectiveness of the hypnosis session.
