Ericksonian Hypnosis – named after Milton Erickson (the father of modern hypnotherapy) – is a type of hypnosis that uses metaphors, storytelling, and indirect suggestions instead of direct suggestions or commands.
The theory behind this technique is that you are less likely to resist indirect suggestions, which can help you absorb and internalise them better.
This type of hypnosis works with your unconscious mind and offers a more organic approach to suggesting change.
This type of hypnosis is particularly useful for anyone who is resistant to clinical hypnosis. It’s similar to when we’re children listening to someone tell a story.
