CLINICAL and ERICKSONIAN HYPNOSIS
The hypnotic state is a natural state that occurs spontaneously and regularly to all of us, in which the person focuses their thoughts abstracting from their environment.
Clinical hypnosis enhances the creative and abstraction capacity for the benefit of the patient, using specific techniques of induction of the hypnotic state, through relaxation techniques, active hypnosis, self-hypnosis, among others. Therefore, hypnosis is not a loss of consciousness, nor loss of control, nor putting our will in the hands of another person.
Hypnosis is a very effective tool that uses and enhances our own internal resources, to modify or reprogram our point of view and position before a conflict, situation, or behaviour, without trying to avoid or forget it, but addressing it actively and effectively, finding solutions and alternatives. Hypnosis helps the unconscious to generate its own creative responses, restoring the emotional balance and achieving the objective in a quick and harmless way.
What are its purposes?
By reducing the tendency to be alert and aware of the details that surround us, we concentrate our thoughts and sensations as we wish. In this way we focus our thoughts and emotions, learning to manage them in a way that facilitates the desired change.
In hypnotic trance state we are able to transcend our usual way of thinking and feeling, which allows us to discover new options to improve our adaptation to the environment.
The therapeutic objective will depend on the interests and difficulties that each person identifies and wishes to improve. Among others, hypnosis is especially indicated in:
Treatment of psychosomatic disorders.
Control of stress and decrease of anxiety.
Changing harmful habits for healthier lifestyles.
Facilitating pain control.
Control of phobias.
