But then what is
Clinical Hypnosis

Ericksonian clinical hypnosis is a form of therapy that uses hypnosis to help people resolve psychological and physical problems. It is based on the premise that each person is unique and has their own resources to overcome their problems.


The Ericksonian therapist uses a variety of techniques to help the patient access these resources and use hypnosis to bring about change. These techniques may include trance induction , suggestions , confrontation , and reframing .

phase 1

Trance induction

The patient is induced into an altered state of consciousness that is more receptive to the therapist's suggestions.

phase 3


At this stage the therapist can use confrontation to help the patient face their problems and overcome their challenges.

phase 2


The therapist uses suggestions to help the patient achieve therapeutic goals. Suggestions can be more direct or indirect

phase 4


In the final phase, the therapist can reframe the patient's situation in a way that is more positive and constructive.
