Why Hypnosis ?

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Ericksonian hypnosis constitutes an important tool to treat all psychological conditions and some physical issues. It is furthermore probably the only tool to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

When the Socratic dialogue has been of little help, it might thus be adequate to shift to another mode of communication.

All things considered, Ericksonian hypnosis is based upon premises close to the one presupposed by the philosophical praxis.

First, there are no preconceptions underlying the therapeutical work but a minimal working hypothesis : the hypnotic "states" are natural states that occur quite naturally in normal everyday life ; these states can also work as a defence mechanism

Second, the only categories that are used are the one introduced by the visitor/patient.

Third, the way the treatment unfolds is determined by the patient who mobilizes his/her resources in order to obtain the result freely chosen.

Fourth, there is no contraindication to the use of Ericksonian hypnosis : it is applicable in the exact measure the patient allows it. There are no secondary effects that cannot be reframed by an experienced therapist.
