Clinical Hypnosis

I often integrate clinical hypnosis within my therapy to develop positivity, and to amplify the hidden strengths of my clients so that they can enhance their cognitive flexibility, and gradually but firmly establish better-coping skills to increase their self-efficacy. I am deeply passionate on my focus on wellness rather than pathology. As Carl Jung stated We are not what happened to us,
we are what we wish to become”.

A lot of scientific journals solely discuss about clinical practice on the basis of research into hypnotic phenomena. Many different national and international meetings were conducted entirely to the subject of how hypnosis informs clinical practice and clarified complex mind-body relationships.

Hypnosis has played a significant role in the evolution of psychotherapy from the starting point. In clinical hypnosis, hypnosis is a tool, not a therapy.

Hypnosis helps clients discover and use more of their personal abilities.

As a tool, hypnosis creates the ability within a client so that they can gain access to and mobilize helpful resources within them, which are largely unrecognised and unused. Using hypnosis as a tool a therapist can build the association to help a client to access their resources which are dissociated.

Hypnosis helps clients discover and use more of their personal abilities.

  • It helps them to step outside the narrow self-defining boundaries of their subjective reality.
  • To facilitate therapy hypnosis is often a meaningful procedure to reach our hidden treasures of the mind.
  • The significant advantage of using hypnosis in psychotherapy lies in its ability to explore many resources of our unconscious mind.
  • Our feelings, values, behaviours, memories and understandings of life are the subjective realities of our mind and they can be changed.
  • The artistry of both effective hypnosis and psychotherapy lies in the clinician’s ability to know what to suggest and when and how to suggest it.
  • The basic underlying principle of hypnosis is to focus on amplifying a client’s awareness on their strengths.
  • It is already known that when we focus on some specific stimulus we associate or relate more directly or closely a portion of experience and we dissociate or less directly to and more distantly from other aspects of the experience.

“Thus, the artistry of applying hypnosis is in having the ability to organise ideas, present information, suggest perspectives, motivate a willingness to experiment with new ideas and behaviours, explore new possibilities, and challenge one’s own self-imposed limits.” (Erickson & Rossi, 1981).
