Contrary to the popular mythology about hypnosis, clinical hypnosis enhances personal mastery by promoting greater self-awareness, increasing access to personal resources, and amplifying of a sense of personal agency in actively choosing growth-oriented responses. How hypnosis can help empower people will be highlighted in this clinical demonstration.
States of stuckness, resistance or impasse constitute one of the ongoing challenges facing any therapist or coach. Rather than opposing or capitulating to such resistance, it is possible to help clients transform these states through a process involving increased awareness, flexibility and presence. Drawing upon examples of Milton Erickson’s own work, this demonstration will show a simple method to support clients to engage and resolve stuck states in order to achieve a state of greater alignment and integration.
