The hypnotic trance is a state in which an appeal is made directly to our subconscious. The person under hypnosis is on a level between sleep and waking consciousness, and they experience a deeply relaxed feeling. With the help of various hypnotic techniques, unresolved fears and even thought and behavior patterns can be specifically addressed in the intermediate state.They can be changed, if desired.
Examples of the approach:
Regressive: Here, the client is hypnotically guided into their past life stage, where emotions and situations are relived, re-imagined and subsequently changed. This method is used to release existing fears and blockages due to unprocessed events from the past.
Progressive: The goal of this method is to facilitate future-oriented action through encoding, without being held back by insecurities or other obstacles. Under hypnosis, they are placed in the “perfect day” in order to imagine it. Imagination helps to perceive feelings of happiness and, through purposefully placed encodings, to act in such a way that fiction becomes reality.
Suggestive: In suggestive hypnosis, special combinations of words are suggested to the person under trance in order to have a positive influence on their feelings or way of thinking. Milton H. Erickson’s speech patterns are used for this purpose.
Resource-oriented: In resource-oriented hypnosis, it is assumed that the energy and ability to resolve symptoms of an aggravation are already present in the client. Here, under trance, the hypnotized person is confronted with the moment that is considered the trigger for their symptoms. During the session, the negative emotions felt in the moment are mixed with positively charged ones, weakening or erasing the negatively charged emotions.
Hypnotic anchors: anchoring is used to trigger a specific response, which is achieved through the use of a stimulus. This can be a combination of words, body posture or a smell. What the decision is made on is customizable.
Hypnosis Coaching: Coaching under hypnosis is ideal for people who want to bring more clarity to their lives. Here, the person under trance is given an analytical explanation of how to respond to certain situations. In therapeutic hypnosis, there is also the possibility to expand their knowledge through intensive hypnoanalytical applications of personality and goal analysis.
HypnoSystemic: In this type of therapy, the relationship processes of the hypnotized person are seen as the starting point of the problem and can contribute to its solution. This can include family, friends, but also ancestors and places. To combat this difficulty, figures are used that are placed in the room by the client and can, for example, embody family members. The goal of the constellation is to determine power relationships or the respective attitude towards the person through their respective placement. This method can be used to solve decision-making fears and strengthen self-esteem.
