Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy that can be used for symptoms, problems and obstacles with a social, psychological and / or psychosomatic character. This form of treatment can also be used to increase your own ability and qualities. Hypnotherapy often assumes that symptoms and problems are caused by the subconscious mind, i.e. the learned behavior and additional automatic reactions. Because the source lies in the subconscious, it is difficult to treat the problems using a ‘conscious’ form of therapy.
You may recognize the feeling of driving your car to a place and arriving at your destination thinking, ‘Hey, I am already here. What was I thinking about all this time?’ This is a light trance.
The use of trance (or hypnosis) is the essence of this therapy. In addition, the hypnotherapist uses other ‘evidence-based’ forms of therapy. This means that its effect has been demonstrated in scientific research.
In this therapy you learn to listen to yourself in a different way than you are used to. This brings you closer to your unconscious feelings and beliefs. This creates new insights that you can apply in your own way in daily life in order to achieve your goals.
There are many trance techniques within hypnotherapy such as regression, reincarnation, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), imagery, autogenic training and self hypnosis. The effect of many other forms of therapy, such as counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy, can be enhanced when combined with therapeutic trance. Hypnotherapy is both a stand-alone treatment method and a valuable support for regular and complementary medicine.
