Indications of Humanist Hypnosis
Humanist Hypnosis, with its particular features, complements this already long list with more “psy” indications, such as:
- Severe diseases, such as cancer, with often existential origins (in addition to medical treatment), repeated physical problems and unexplained causes (headache, back pain, fungal infections, cystitis, and other somatizations), patriarchal effects (women who undervalue themselves, have no interest in life, and who stay behind the scenes, behind their husband, suffer from unrecognized status, etc.).), identity problems (including sexual problems), women who are too “solar” (cut off from their feminine) and men who are too “lunar” (cut off from their masculine), existential uneasiness, sadness or feeling of chronic powerlessness, feeling dissociated, cut off from the body, emotions and feelings, excess analytical thinking, family loyalties, resentment, grief, always being (or believing) a victim, being trapped to a situation, criticised or judged by others, being bashful, aggressiveness, anger, hyperactivity, desire to have multiple and short-lived emotional relationships, fear of abandonment, suicidal tendencies, negative inner dialogue that devalues, demeans, inability to build or maintain a relationship, relationship and infertility problems, psychological infertility, repeated personal or professional failure, and so on, a sense of being invisible, uninteresting, too naive, credulity, pessimism, a sense of injustice, a sense of inferiority, endogenous depression, the need to find one’s way, lack of creativity, loss of a taste for life, over expectations in relation to others, excessive need to get attention, etc.
Notice that from a Humanist Hypnosis perspective, many of the disorders listed in the first list above would be more advantageously and sustainably treated through Humanist approaches, which more appropriately address the person’s deep psychology, life history and emotional mechanisms – with the aim of healing a person, not a disease.
Humanist Hypnosis belonging to the brief therapies, allow one to three sessions to address a simple condition, without any serious cause. We will rather plan four to ten sessions for long-standing problems relating to education where the focus is on the growth of our “being”.
Albert Einstein and Robert Dilts in his wake taught us, each in their own field, that a problem finds its most effective solution at “a higher level than the one that caused the problem”…
If you imagine Health as the basis of all healthy forms of earthly existence, and subsequently the Quality of our life as the facets of a pyramid that culminates in an ideal human outcome, then the supreme “logical level” would be that which transcends our Identity itself.
The indications of Humanist Hypnosis are therefore much broader than for other forms of hypnosis (“classic”, “Ericksonian”, etc.), the symbolic intervention at the level of the deep structure of the Unconscious links it to psychotherapy, besides, being ” more than conscious ” is a key factor in coaching.
