Ericksonian hypnosis is practiced today in some health centers, therapists to treat body ailments, such as those of the mind.
But what is Erickson's hypnosis? Who is it for? How exactly is a typical session?
Hypnosis can treat and improve certain psychological disorders, but also act on symptoms, such as pain. She is particularly active on phobias, obsessive disorders, addictions, anxieties, stress, self-confidence. It can also be indicated on sleep disorders or on addictions, such as smoking.
During an Ericksonian hypnosis session, the patient 's unconscious takes over and the conscious goes to sleep. Thanks to the therapist, it is possible to access the brain sphere where we find intimate information, repressed traumas, injunctions from our parents, etc.
If this discipline can seem quite enigmatic, we will try to enlighten it in our special file. Read the advice of Lilian Dupré, psychologist, and the testimony of Olivier who was treated by Ericksonian hypnosis.
Warning: Ericksonian hypnosis does not claim to work miracles. If a therapist feels able to heal or cure a serious illness, such as cancer, beware!
