what is clinical hypnosis

Ericksonian hypnosis

As a licensed healthcare professional, I received my advance level training in hypnosis from the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) founded by renowned psychiatrist Milton H. Erickson, MD in 1957.  This type of ‘indirect’ hypnosis is also known as Ericksonian Hypnosis.


Clinical hypnosis uses a set of skills that facilitate a natural, altered state of consciousness called TRANCE. During therapeutic trance, the conscious mind is relaxed and relatively inactive, while the subconscious mind is able to access resources, skills, and abilities that are otherwise unavailable to the conscious mind. Hypnosis may provide the ability to increase insight, ego strength, and solution-focused skills.
