With hypnosis you have access to previously hidden links in your brain that will collaborate to resolve your issue.
Nobody can be hypnotized against their will. Hypnosis creates a changed stage of consciousness. The hypnotized person is physically in a state of deep relaxation, while mentally he is highly concentrated and his concentration is focused inwards. He may temporarily lose all sense of time, and his immediate environment will become unimportant; yet the hypnotized person is aware of what is going on around him. During the hypnosis and afterwards he feels extremely relaxed.
In the hypnotized state, the brain-wave frequency is slower, similar to the state we are in just after waking up or just before falling asleep. In this state, there is an “open door” to a person’s unconscious thoughts and it is possible to identify and change unconscious mechanisms and to get to the root of the person’s fears. It is also possible to change the way in which past experiences – which are connected with current difficulties and continue to play an influential role – are experienced. The person’s brain is effectively “re-wired,” which has a strong impact on blockages, fears and anxieties: they appear in another light, vanish bit by bit, or spontaneously disappear.
What is hypnosis good for?
Hypnosis can be used to treat a variety of disorders. Beside the treatment of fears and phobias, hypnosis is suitable for reducing stress and creating states of relaxation that continue to work long after the treatment session. This can lead to a more relaxed rhythm of life. Sleeping disorders, addictions, migraines, depression, asthma, allergies, and eating disorders can also be successfully treated with hypnosis.
Hypnosis helps to activate the body’s self-healing powers and can serve as a complementary treatment for all forms of illness: particularly when deep-rooted blockages or convictions prevent a person from getting healthy. Together we will root out these blockages and deal with them. Hypnosis has also proven to be very conducive for the treatment of chronic pain.
How does hypnosis work?
First I will demonstrate to you how a hypnosis session works and answer any questions you may have. After you have outlined your problem, I can tell you how many sessions I think you will need. Usually 3–6 sessions are sufficient for treating an issue.
Now we will define your precise goals in a preliminary discussion. By asking specific questions about your situation, I can derive so-called “hypnotic suggestions” from your answers. I then work with these suggestions during the hypnosis. If you want to explore the underlying reasons for your problem, I will carefully explain to you how the hypnosis will work to achieve this aim. Then we can begin the hypnosis.
It’s up to you if you want to make yourself comfy on a couch or chair, whether you close your eyes or leave them open. The only thing that is important is that you can relax – and I will help you with this. I will guide you into a very relaxed and deep trance state. I can then communicate directly with your unconscious and address your issues on this deeper level. We can then initiate the changes that you want.
