Ericksonian HypnoTherapy

Eriksonian Hypnosis is the term used to define the hypnosis techniques/approach used by Milton H Erickson in psychotherapy. This form of hypnosis is non-intrusive and non-directive and thus more naturalistic. Erickson believed that the unconscious mind is always listening and that it is creative and solution-generating.

A hypnotic state/trance is a natural focused phenomenon we all experience in our daily lives. In this approach all hypnotic techniques are focused on the presenting problem of a patient and not on the past. Thus, it is a solution-focused brief technique focusing on the resources the patient has. The patient takes full ownership, and participates in his/her corrective experience.
