who approach hypnosis therapy bring with them an image of hypnosis received
from films such as Woody Allen’s “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion”, in which
the hypnotist takes control of the mind of the patient! No image is further
away from truth and for this reason the first session is used to dispel
model of hypnotherapy that I use dates back to the studies of Milton
Erickson (1901-1980), an American psychiatrist who has completely
redesigned the field of hypnosis creating an innovative approach known as
discovered what he called “common every day trance” in which an individual
spontaneously undergoes periods of “absorption” and follows inner images
and reorganizes unconscious material. These periods of absorption have been
confirmed by modern neurosciences, which found that about every ninety
minutes we undergo a spontaneous trance. It happens, for example, when we
are immersed in reading a book or watching a movie and don’t hear the
doorbell or the voice of a person who calls us. These are common
experiences of trance, of “absorption” that each of us experiences in his
own and very personal way.
is physiological, common and spontaneous and in no way implies the “loss of
control”. It is only a period during which attention is focused in
ourselves, compared to when it is focused outside and the person remains in
full self-awareness of the place and surrounding.
main purpose of hypnotherapy is to find within ourselves the resources
needed to overcome moments of difficulty and crisis and move toward change
by mobilizing energy and resources hidden within us. Inside each of us
there is a “toolbox” that we can open and use to solve problems. But with
time and because of our negative experiences we forget about these inner
tools, and we search for them anxiously outside with no results!
to Erickson, within each person there are resources and stories of success
that people do not even know they have. The main goal of the therapy is to
bring them out and put them to good use.
hypnotherapy belongs to the strategic psychotherapies, in which aims to achieve
a therapeutic goals are agreed at the beginning between the therapist and
