What is the hypnotherapy?


The hypnotherapy could define itself as the therapeutic use of the hypnosis.

The hypnosis is a natural process usually observed in everyday life.

They are these moments when the conscious attention "drops out" of what surrounds it, it is " to be absent-minded ". In therapy, by the use of specific techniques of communication, this mental functioning maybe leads and used by the therapist to help the patient to reach his/her goal and to allow him/her to find the resources which are necessary for him/her to answer in a way adapted to the situations that he/she meets.

A therapy which is also a learning...

It's like a learning and asks an active participation of the patient who becomes back an actor of his own life. Based on an essential therapeutic alliance, every patient benefits from an individual and specific approach according to his problem and to his situation. The human relation is there major. To hear, to listen to, to understand, to explain, to accompany are in the center of this practice.
Since March, 2013, the medical hypnosis is officially recognized as complementary therapy in an official report of the French Academy of Medicine. It doesn't substitutes itself with a medical consultation with diagnostic aim. Then, used only or as a supplement to other therapeutic tools, the hypnosis participates in the physical as psychological comfort.


Hypnosis must be practised by healthcare professionals only in their areas of competence...

Tool of the brief therapies, the hypnosis allows to reach the therapeutic goal fixed with the patient to a few weeks. It owes be practised only by healthcare professionals and within the framework of their skills.

The observation of the patient, of his verbal, paraverbal and non-verbal behavior is a major phase of the therapy. These specific ways of communication, associated to the indirect suggestions, to the metaphors, to the evocations in images will be so many tools at the disposal of the therapist to reach then, with the patient, the fixed objectives.

There is a change in the orientation to the reality, most of the time focused on the internal experiences of the patient in a therapeutic frame." "The unconscious has a wealth of skills and resources of changes".

The hypnotherapy will be indicated either in first intention, or secondarily after the failure of the other therapeutic ways. 

What is the hypnotic state?

L hypnose modifie vraiment l activite cerebraleThe hypnotic state is a mental way of functioning, a modified state of consciousness, different from the waking state and from the sleep, usually observed in everyday life. They are all these moments when the aware attention "drops out" of what surrounds him. There is then a certain activation of unconscious functions. Milton H. Erickson called this phenomenon "the common trance of every day". It occurs physiologically on average every 90 minutes. Today the medical imaging allows, in particular thanks to the MRI, to demonstrate the modifactions of the cerebral activity during a session of hypnosis.
