What is hypnosis?

Séance d'hypnose

Hypnosis is a cover gentle therapy. It allows access to the unconscious by disconnecting from the mind to free ourselves from our blockages and access our true deep nature, with our full capacities.

For who ?

For those who are on the verge of depression or burnout or who are in particularly stressful periods such as (exams, change of job, divorce…).

How it works ?

First, it is fast and effective therapy . A few sessions are enough to treat the cause of insomnia . It gently plunges you into a state of reverie which allows you to disconnect the mind to access the unconscious.

The first session lasts 1h30. The patient fills out a short questionnaire which will help find the cause of the insomnia . The idea? Define whether the insomnia is related to a deep inner illness or to a one-off / outdoor event, and set up a personalized method .

If the insomnia is linked to a deep illness ( bereavement , separation ...), we will revisit this past event and we will soften its memory in a state of hypnosis, until it becomes neutral and acceptable, by calming the source of anguish.

If insomnia is linked to fears of the future (approaching exam, job interview…), we will work on having self-confidence , on the positive projection of the future .

To reinforce the beneficial effects of hypnosis and train the brain to get used to the good habit of sleeping well , a few quick daily exercises are recommended. For example: for 30 seconds, we inhale and we breathe while formulating loud and clear a positive mantra such as “ I free myself from my anxieties ”.

Result? In four sessions, we detach ourselves from our anxieties, our fears and we find a good sleep.

It takes 10 to 20 sessions of 45 minutes with, at the beginning, a rhythm of two per week. The first sessions, as if we were bursting an abscess, will reveal the real fatigue that the patient has overlooked for a long time. They resurface and become noticeable by the patient who will feel very tired at the start of therapy . “ But it is essential to regain balance, ” explains Dr Tran Dinh Can. At the end of the fifth week approximately, the state is more stable, the tiredness completely evacuated. We can space out the sessions and gradually regain balance and sleep.
