What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis (or hypnotherapy) is a technique by which a person puts themselves or others into a different state of consciousness—a hypnotic trance. In this way, buried experiences can be worked through, fears can be managed and positive forces can be activated. However, also surgeries and dental treatments are possible to be performed under hypnosis and without anesthesia.

Hypnosis is a procedure that opens access to the inner world via the subconscious. Hypnosis is not magic, even if sometimes stage hypnotists present it in such a way during their shows.

For a long time it was assumed that the hypnotic trance is a state similar to being asleep. However, modern brain research has shown that people under hypnosis are awake and alert. The trance is therefore rather a state of deep relaxation in which the client focuses his attention on something specific. And the hypnotherapist uses this to activate, via the subconscious, the client's personal strengths and coping strategies that he or she is not applying in everyday life. Thus, hypnosis is employed in a supportive way in order to solve physical or psychological problems.

Hypnosis is used independently or in combination with other methods (e.g. NLP).

What is the procedure of a serious hypnotherapy?

Before a hypnosis, a detailed anamnesis and conversations between hypnotherapist and client are taking place. On the one hand, these serve to build trust and, on the other, they are essential for the success of the hypnotherapy within the framework of the process.

Prior to a hypnosis, the hypnotherapist conducts tests in order to find the optimal hypnosis-induction for the client. The total duration of hypnotherapy depends on the previously agreed treatment goal, the type and duration of the issue or illness, and the client's resilience.


Scientific experiments have shown that hypnotherapy is an effective treatment method for many people. And even though it may feel during trance as if oneself is, for example, performing involuntary movements, in hypnosis one is not devoid of one's own willpower.

Hypnosis also works only for people who want to engage in it, and even then it does not work on everyone. There are people who are easier to hypnotize than others. And some cannot be put into a hypnotized state at all.

An ethical hypnotherapist, trained in clinical hypnosis, is gentle in his conduct with the client and is aware of his responsibilities towards the client.

When does hypnosis help?

Hypnotherapy has proven successful in treating a wide variety of ailments and concerns.

What do I have to pay attention to after hypnosis?

Hypnosis works primarily by way of the relaxed state. It is therefore advantageous if you take enough time before the hypnosis and do not, for example, come to the therapy session rushed and stressed.

Following the session, plan for a time buffer as well. Hypnosis experiences can feel very intense. Perhaps you may need some time afterwards to fully recover.

You should also take time after the hypnosis in order to process what you have experienced. If you are working on therapeutic goals, give the suggestions a chance to take effect.

The power of hypnosis is also therein that the self-critical and negative thoughts, which accompany many of us every day, are briefly turned off. After hypnosis, many people feel energized and motivated. Enjoy this state and leave doubting thoughts out of it as long as possible. A Hypnotherapy has the best effect when you fully engage in the process of the hypnosis.
