“Imagination is more important than knowledge, because knowledge is limited.”
Hypnosis (ancient Greek: ὕπνος hypnos ‘sleep’) is used and recognised today as an effective, flexible, psychotherapeutic method. Hypnosis is known as an ancient tradition. Hypnosis is the name given to various trance states of the human brain. Hypnotic trance is a completely natural state, which the brain induces several times a day, in different everyday situations. In clinical hypnosis therapy, this trance is consciously created through relaxation and one uses the access to the subconscious for therapeutic applications. Hypnosis is a state of maximum physical relaxation and simultaneous mental focus. With your help, I can enter into direct dialogue with your subconscious. You always decide yourself how far you want to go and how much time you need for this. You are always in control and remember the experience in detail after the session.
Through hypnosis you will reach a state of deep relaxation and concentration on yourself.
Hypnosis therapy can be used effectively, for example for
- Reduction of behavioural problems e.g.: Insecurity, shyness, nervousness, stress, burnout
- Dissolving or transforming fears, for example: fear of exams, fear of flying, fear of the dentist, agoraphobia
- Inner Child Integration
- Alleviation of depressive moods
- Addictive behaviour
- Nutritional problems, for example: Weight management
Every hypnosis is preceded by an intensive initial consultation in which I discuss contents, needs and goals with you. From this we develop detailed formulations of objectives, which are used as positive suggestion. In deep relaxation, old patterns of evaluation and behaviour are effectively replaced by new ones.
For legal reasons and for your information, I would like to point out that my work as a hypnotherapist and alternative practitioner (state-examined and licensed for psychotherapy) is fundamentally different from the work of a doctor, in which no diagnoses or healing promises made. No medication is being administered!
A possibly necessary medical or psychiatric intervention by a doctor can not be replaced by the hypnotherapeutic work. In some cases a written psychiatric confirmation of the suitability for hypnosis therapy may be necessary.
As a therapist, I decide in each individual case whether to accept, reject or continue treatment.
All psychological illnesses can, without exception, have somatic (physical) causes. Therefore you should in these cases consult a doctor first.
