Hypnosis and Hypnotheraphy
I know you have the resources to achieve your goals and your dreams. With the help of hypnosis and therapy, I can help you.
I have a duty of confidentiality and I keep a record of your treatment. However, I use only the first name and no data due to data protection legislation, and you have the right to gain access to the record that I keep at any time.
If we agree to record audio or video during the session, it must always be done with your consent.
I always start a session with a conversation where the two of us talk about what issue you would like to work on.
It is vital that you feel comfortable and safe before I start the hypnosis.
Once we have got hold of the discomfort, a problem or a desire for change, we can embark on the actual treatment, hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy is a form of treatment in which I activate your body and your mind to relax. I do this with my voice, while you rest your body in a relaxed position, either in the chair or on the couch. I take you into a relaxed, safe and calm state with my voice. Most people choose to close their eyes because hypnosis reminds them of a sleep-like state.
From here, I can now increase your awareness, your focus, the contact to yourself and your mind’s imagination and fantasy, which opens up so that I can guide you into your subconscious mind and the emotional causes of your issues.
Using your senses (depending on how you visualise), you can notice, sense, feel or experience the underlying emotions, and when you are ready, I start processing – using therapeutic tools, I can release the subconscious blockages and using your own resources, help you create new positive patterns, opportunities and goals that will transform your behaviour, your thoughts and emotions in the direction you want.
Many emotions may be brought the surface, but often and frequently I find that when the person is taken back to the normal relaxed, awake state, they do not always remember the experience as violently as it may look from my perspective while you are resting there in the chair or on the couch.
Furthermore, you will find that I am completely calm and relaxed during my observation because I know that your unconscious mind contains infinite powers and resources that help you heal, find solutions and process your issues in a healthy and positive way.
A session typically lasts 1½ hours and besides the conversation and hypnotherapy, we will spend time summarising your experiences during the session. Before you leave my room, we will agree on what could be useful for you to work on.
There may be a need for more sessions, depending on the issues you have, as well as how your body responds to the new state, self-understanding and new convictions and tools that the session brings to you.
It may take several days for your body to react to the new tools, and there may even be physical symptoms. However, it’s all something that you should see as healing your body and a good process associated with you doing excellent work on yourself. Therefore, it’s also crucial to have homework and repetitions in the form of exercises in new behaviours, practical repetitions and training. You are programming and changing your hard drive (your subconscious mind) in a healthy and positive way.
I have some people who experience that they only need one session, for example, Per, a man I had in therapy for snoring, and which I describe further down the page. He experienced an immediate release and well-being that he had not felt for a long time and because he was 100% ready for change, and his mind accepted the new tools, he only needed one session.
Can everyone be hypnotised?
If you are convinced that you cannot be hypnotised, I must tell you that the state is quite natural and is very similar to the state you experience just before you fall asleep or just before waking up in the morning. The word hypnosis derives from the Greek word Hypnos, which means to sleep. However, you do not sleep, on the contrary. During hypnosis, your mind is relaxed, open and focused, and you can answer questions. However, you may experience varying depths of hypnosis and find that you only want to respond by giving a sign by lifting a finger. It is perfectly ok, everything that happens is as it should be.
During the hypnosis, you have the opportunity to communicate with your subconscious and find the emotional causes of your issues. Using therapeutic methods, I can process the natural resistance to change, and by diving deeper into your subconscious mind and guiding you into the emotional causes, you can grasp hold of locked energies, blockages, and you can let go, release and unlock old negative patterns, habits and traumas. By planting and reinforcing new positive ideas, desires and dreams, you can sprout and grow.
