Definition


Ericksonian hypnosis is a therapeutic technique based on the teachings of Milton Erickson. This American psychiatrist and psychologist demonstrated to what extent the unconscious mind of each individual is capable of adapting his response to the different situations confronting him. The objective of Ericksonian hypnosis is therefore to stimulate problem-solving and healing. The technique can treat all different sorts of conditions, and not only psychiatric disorders (OCD, depression, anxiety, phobias...).
