About the Integrated Hypnotherapy Approach

Integrated Hypnotherapy is based on the integrated approach by bringing our awareness to the chain linking Thoughts-Emotions-Energies-Physical Body. At all times, we operate through 4 bodies or 4 levels of existence:

  • Thoughts, which control our causal body.
  • Emotions, which control our astral body.
  • Energies, which control the body of our Chakras/Auras.
  • Physical body/perceptive reality, which controls our brain.

Students are extensively trained to work with a variety of the following tools in conjunction with the traditional classical hypnotherapeutic approach to access the subconscious mind through the various levels of our existence, and therefore qualify as integrated Hypnotherapists:

  • Classical Hypnotherapy to work with the deep subconscious issues.
  • Emotional Empowerment Technique (Tapping Meridians for Emotional Release)
  • Energy Diagnosis through crystal healing known as Radical Healing
  • Basic NLP
  • Past Life Regression, Age Regression, Inner Child Work, Journey of the Souls, Higher Self Therapy
  • Cognitive Therapy
  • Guided Breath work
  • Rhythmic Relaxation Techniques (RRT)

Uniqueness: Why Are We Different?

Classical Hypnotherapy is very effective in achieving long lasting resolutions, because it focuses on change at the thought level where problems begin. However, the integrated approach mentioned above, is much quicker because it focuses on change at every level including thought, thereby cutting short the reach to recovery for a client, to the shortest possible time.

    What does hypnosis feel like?

    The experience is different for different people. For most people, however, hypnosis is a pleasant state of deep inner calm and physical relaxation. Deep hypnosis is similar in many ways to the kind of profound trance found in expert yoga or meditation practitioners.

    What is the origin of the science of hypnosis?

    Modern psychological hypnosis was first developed in 1843 by the Scottish physician James Braid. However, it has its origins in an earlier form of trance healing called ‘Mesmerism’, after the famous Eighteenth century Austrian Franz Anton Mesmer.

    Does hypnosis work?

    Yes. Hypnosis has fascinated psychologists and medical professionals for over a century and has been subject to a great deal of rigorous testing and research. It also has an enviable and long-standing reputation for effectiveness among the general public.

    Is hypnosis safe?

    Absolutely. There are no known records of anyone having been physically or mentally harmed as a direct result of hypnosis itself. It is utterly impossible for anyone to get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis.

    What is hypnotherapy?

    Hypnotherapy is basically any therapy done in conjunction with hypnotic trance. It is often classed as a form of complementary medicine but is perhaps better viewed as a branch of psychotherapy. Hypnosis is not an occult or esoteric art, it is a scientifically acknowledged psychological and therapeutic discipline. When a registered psychotherapist employs hypnosis alongside other forms of psychotherapy this is technically known as ‘hypno-psychotherapy’. Hypnotherapists tend to use an integrative approach, which may combine programs of direct verbal suggestion or visualization with ‘analytic’ psychotherapy techniques such as age regression.

    Is it officially recognized?

    ‘Hypnotism’ is legally acknowledged and defined by the Hypnotism Act 1952, in the UK Book of Statutes.

    In their 1892 Hypnotism Report, the British Medical Association (BMA) officially recognize the hypnotic trance: ‘The Committee, having completed such investigation of hypnotism as time permitted, have to report that they have satisfied themselves of the genuineness of the hypnotic state.’ The Committee also acknowledged that ‘as a therapeutic agent hypnotism is frequently effective in relieving pain, procuring sleep, and alleviating many functional ailments’ (BMA, 1892).

    In 1955 a follow-up report was commissioned which endorsed the findings of the original 1892 Committee, and added the conclusions that ‘hypnotism is of value and may be the treatment of choice in some cases of so-called psycho-somatic disorder and psychoneurosis. It may also be of value for revealing unrecognized motives and conflicts in such conditions. As a treatment, in the opinion of the Subcommittee it has proved its ability to remove symptoms and to alter morbid habits of thought and behavior. In addition to the treatment of psychiatric disabilities, there is a place for hypnotism in the production of anesthesia or analgesia for surgical and dental operations, and in suitable subjects it is an effective method of relieving pain in childbirth without altering the normal course of labor.’ (BMA, 1955)
