What does hypnosis treat?

With hypnosis, you will be able to treat all the deep causes of your malaise and get in direct contact with the one who knows everything: your unconscious or as I call it, your inner child.


Therefore hypnosis is very effective:

  • To lose weight sustainably
  • To get a good night's sleep
  • To stop smoking
  • For other addictions such as drug, gambling and video addiction
  • For behavioural and speech disorders


 Hypnosis will also allow:

  •  To let go of your everyday problems
  •  Soothe or even eliminate physical pain
  •  To regain general well-being and above all to anchor it in time


With hypnosis, it is easy to change a behaviour and an internal programme. In contrast, it takes 21 days for the brain to adopt a new reality and 90 days to accept a new lifestyle.

The hypnosis sessions should be adapted to this, so as not to slow down and especially stop the transformation process.

During my sessions, I realised that hypnosis was just as effective as EMDR and EFT for the emotional decoding of your body

Do you want to change an internal programme to regain your confidence?

What is hypnosis?

 Hypnosis is a brief therapy technique that aims to produce an altered state of consciousness in the person. There are four universal techniques of hypnosis. These techniques are: Classical or Performance Hypnosis, Ericksonian Hypnosis, New Hypnosis and Humanistic Hypnosis.

Regardless of which hypnosis technique the practitioner uses, the differences between these hypnosis techniques lie in the way the altered or unified state of consciousness and the overall goal are achieved.

How does hypnosis work?

Performance or Classical Hypnosis

Classical hypnosis is arguably the first and simplest way to practice hypnosis. It has existed for two centuries. Using this hypnosis technique, nothing is hidden from the person, it is a very direct hypnosis. Classical hypnosis is used in therapy, both for medical and psychosomatic applications. It is the hypnosis technique that you see on TV shows and in street performances.

This is known as 'recreational' or 'demonstration' hypnosis.

Ericksonian hypnosis

This form of hypnosis is named after the American psychiatrist Milton Erickson. The Ericksonian hypnosis method is based on giving the impression that the person has free will by using the language of positive manipulation. The person in the hypnosis session will unconsciously make the right decisions for him or her, always guided by the therapist's indirect metaphors and suggestions.

Ericksonian hypnosis is still the most popular and respected method of hypnosis. Other forms of hypnosis have been developing for many years but Ericksonian hypnosis is the most popular method of hypnosis in consultation.

The New Hypnosis

The term 'new hypnosis' was coined in 1979 by Daniel Araoz. This form of hypnosis owes much to Ericksonian hypnosis, but is completely different from the latter. 

The new hypnosis is much more gentle and adapted to current demands than Ericksonian hypnosis and is mainly concerned with the psychological well-being of the person. For example, the person will be able to use a memory as a hypnotic induction.

The new hypnosis retains the generic name of Ericksonian hypnosis because the term is more familiar to the general public.

Humanistic hypnosis

Humanistic hypnosis is a very recent hypnosis technique since it was born in 2001 following Olivier Lockert's fascinating research on non-dissociative hypnosis, without loss of consciousness.

This technique works in complete contrast to other hypnosis techniques by seeking to bring about a partial or total reassociation of the conscious and unconscious minds in the person, whereas other techniques seek to increase the natural separation between the conscious and unconscious minds.

The state of consciousness obtained is indeed a modified state, therefore a true state of hypnosis, but it brings a state of lightness and awakening in the person who participates fully in his therapy. Humanistic hypnosis is the only form of hypnosis that is said to be "manipulation-free".

Thanks to the TSA (Advanced Symbolic Therapy) developed by Patricia Angeli, humanistic hypnosis is based on physics, the language of dreams, the brain, the human spirit, and offers a very wide range of possibilities by ensuring a total care of the person's well-being.
