Hypnosis does not exist, everything is Hypnosis

(Milton Erickson)

Hypnosis is a particular psychophysiological condition, a way of functioning of the nervous system, different from both sleep and wakefulness, but in any case physiological, which belongs to us every time we automatically perform repetitive activities, or when we are following an inner activity, imagined or remembered, to the point of being so absorbed by it as to completely dissociate ourselves from the surrounding reality. As demonstrated by Milton Erickson during his lifelong work, states of trance are natural manifestations, which belong to the natural human potential and which are experienced daily in the ordinary changes of consciousness and systems that regulate our organism (nervous, circulatory, endocrine, etc..).
Clinical hypnosis can be defined as the set of procedures to develop and use trance states in order to promote the harmonization of brain functions, the integration of thought and intuition, reason and emotion: a progressive training to make the right hemisphere work to activate resources and abilities in order to promote change.

Thanks to hypnosis, therefore, a profound restructuring of the personality is possible and the consequent resolution of psychological symptoms and psychosomatic disorders (which we can consider as the result of the disharmonisation of neurotic man, that is, of the conditioning that determines the dominance of one part of the self-over the other).
The task of the hypnotherapist is to accompany the person in his natural process of trance, facilitating contact with the deep Self and communication with the unconscious mind. Hypnosis is “a psychosomatic response where body and mind interact with each other, helping each other and compensating each other, it is a set of neurological, biochemical, electrical, psychological, social phenomena” (Guantieri, 1975).
Hypnosis is “a particular way of being of the organism that is established whenever special dissociative stimuli intervene, mainly emotional, heterogeneous or autogenic, with the possibility of communication even at a non-verbal level…”.
The task of the hypnotherapist is to accompany the person in his natural process of trance, facilitating contact with the deep self and communication with the unconscious mind. the process of hypnosis is a real training through which the person gradually learns to enter into a trance and manage this state leaving the unconscious to do so. the term training implies the possibility to learn not only to enter and exit the trance but especially to use this particular psychological condition for personal change, problem-solving, stress management. Accessing trance states means gradually learning to get closer to the deep and essential states of our mind, characterized by calm, receptivity, sense of trust and openness.
This learning process is also carried out with self-hypnosis: once you have experienced trance with the help of the hypnologist you can expand the effects with the practice of self-hypnosis, each of us can learn self-hypnosis and practice it to awaken the creative resources and imaginative skills that lead to the solution of problems, hypnosis is used with good results in different areas:

  • in association with other forms of psychotherapy
  • as an integrative treatment of obesity and dietary compulsiveness in the control of emotions (anxiety disorders, panic attacks, anger, sadness, self-esteem, etc.)
  • addictions (alcohol, smoking, drugs)
  • in preparation for childbirth
  • in the treatment of chronic pain and analgesia
  • in the treatment of headaches
