discover what hypnosis is and more precisely what is
Hypnosis is a state of deep, focused introspective awareness
Is hypnosis scientifically proven?
Everyone has experienced a novel that allows us to escape, or a suspension out of time by contemplating the movement of the waves, etc.
In short, everyone was able to experience a modified state of consciousness (different from the usual waking state).
The hypnotic state is precisely that moment of consciousness when things are perceived differently. Since the second half of the 1990s, this state has been identified and characterized in brain imaging (functional MRI and PET-Scan), thus attesting to its real existence.
Scientifically, we can now affirm that the hypnotic state is a reality.
This can manifest itself for you, in a unique way, as a relaxing, mental, emotional, internal or physical release.
What happens when I enter a state of hypnosis
To put oneself in a state of hypnosis, or to do hypnosis with a practitioner, is to intentionally reproduce this state of consciousness with an objective that varies according to the context in question (relaxation, care, personal evolution…).
Since the hypnotic state is a reproduction of a natural and spontaneous state, everyone can access it, but not necessarily in the same way. While most individuals respond well to direct verbal suggestions, others will require an indirect approach to induce the desired altered state of consciousness.
There are many scientific studies that highlight the benefits and successes of hypnosis. From anxiety disorders, phobias, sleep disorders, to pain, anesthesia during operations, as well as weight loss, smoking cessation. Hypnosis is also widely used in coaching professionals or high level athletes. Bertrand Piccard, David Laroche, Michael Schumacher, among others, have used it to progress in their respective fields.
A little more about hypnosis
Hypnosis has existed since antiquity, and new discoveries are made every year on its effects, its benefits, and the convincing results that it brings to many consultants.
Practiced by Messmer (no, not the Messmer of 2015, but Dr. Messmer in the 18th Century). Hypnosis took its marks little by little with Bernheim, Charcot, then Freud who then turned to psychoanalysis, and continues with Dave Elman, Zeig, Erickson who is most frequently mentioned.
The methods vary for what is called the induction and the hypnotic process, but in the end, the objective is the same, so there is no good or bad hypnosis, but simply a hypnosis consultant, or therapist who will be able to guide you by his voice, his style, and who he is, in full confidence towards what you are looking for internally

How does a hypnosis session work?
Course of action
The client expresses his need, and we look for the most effective suggestions to solve his problem.
During the first session, it is also important to explain how hypnosis works, to remove any doubts, to provide an explanation, and any clarification so that the person who comes to see me feels most able to enter a state of hypnosis.
This is when I explain how the “mind-model” works and how it will allow the body and the unconscious to solve deep problems with its own resources.
It is during the hypnotic induction that the patient enters a state of hypnosis. This induction is done in words, gently, allowing the person to go to this state of inner calm. During this phase, following a mutual agreement during the preliminary interview, I will act on the hand, the shoulder, or the head by light touch to help the person deepen his state of hypnosis.
Depending on the work to be done, the depth of the hypnotic state varies. For example, a deeper state of hypnosis will be required for hospital anesthesia than for stress release or self-confidence hypnosis.
Once the state of hypnosis and the necessary depth of the client have been reached, and I have validated it through specific tests, the work in hypnosis is done. A variety of techniques are used, such as suggestions, words, phrases, metaphors, images, repetition, time regression, or other methods.
Each of these techniques will allow the unconscious and subconscious mind to access this, and to set up a new reality in our mind, in order to change a habit, or to free ourselves from a burden that the person has been carrying for a long time.
Emerging from trance
Once the work in hypnosis is done, it is time to come back to the here and now, and this is called “emerging”. During this phase, the client gradually returns to the state of consciousness, to “come to his senses” in a relaxed and gentle manner.
During this phase, we deepen the work on the subconscious mind and allow the suggestions to become positively anchored again.
Once emerged, the client enjoys this wonderful state, and all the relaxation benefits of the session.
End of Session
The work of hypnosis does not end when the hypnosis ends.
Each person’s subconscious mind continues to work on these changes, so it is common to not talk much after a session.
The hypnotist simply follows up with suggestions, reinforcement, positive help that will help the client make their way through the process.
Sometimes it is necessary to schedule other sessions, sometimes not, and that is when I will discuss it with you.
