HOW IS ERICKSONIAN HYPNOTHERAPY USED ?
Hypnosis uses techniques effective with many physical problems - like allergic skin conditions, asthma, insomnia and sexual conditions. Some speedy treatment may be achieved through ‘band-aid’ solutions or short-lasting quick fixes which take no account of individual variability. Whatever the label - Ericksonian work regards the way a condition presents as specific to each individual. Only through proper diagnosis and correct patterns of suggestion - respecting individual uniqueness - achieve effective and long-lasting and solutions.
WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY -
HOW IS PSYCHOTHERAPY USED ?
This can cause unhelpful thought patterns and out-of-control behaviours - like addictions & compulsive behaviour. These may damage ourselves or others in social or emotional ways. More extreme forms lead to obsessive or destructive impulses - violence or self self-harm.
Whether one is addressing Physical & Behaviour Problems - Problem Feelings & Thought Patterns or Social, Emotional & Relationship Difficulties, problems differ mainly in emphasis.
I have access to an experienced professional colleague network for wider consultation and support with complex challenges where needed.
Ericksonians often receive clients who have tried many other therapies with little or no benefit. We are well used to succeeding with really tricky cases.
The next page summarises many types of physical and psychological problems which are amenable to treatment.
