Hypnosis is a neutral tool which helps us connect consciously with our unconscious mind.

L’hypnose ericksonienne

The practice of hypnosis dates back to the Pharaohs with Ramses II who had discovered the very significant virtues of hypnosis by motivating his army before combat.

Hypnosis helps individuals correct their habits or attitudes through dialogue between the conscious and the unconscious minds.

In hypnosis, the individual has the ability to focus and expand on a specific topic. There are several levels of hypnotic trance through which we can navigate (deep – semi-deep – light) and the scope of action is as beneficial.

Some people are afraid of being controlled by hypnosis; however in my approach, the goal is to leave the power in the hands of the person because I believe that all human beings have their own answer.

Ericksonian Hypnosis

Milton H. Erickson is considered the father of modern hypnotherapy and was an internationally renowned American psychiatrist. He was born in 1901 and died in 1980.

By combining and intertwining concepts and patterns of communication he revolutionized the practice of hypnosis. Although he specialized in medical hypnosis he only used formal hypnosis one-fifth of the time.

Dr Erickson worked with the metaphor which is a concrete word for an abstract one, a transfer of meaning by analogous situation, a figure of speech which consists in replacing word A by word B while there is an analogous relation between A and B.

He used the metaphor so that the individual would solve the problem indirectly. In order to solidly anchor the solution found by the client through imagery, he used a directive approach to ensure that no confusion would arise in the individual’s mind. His method is the foundation of one of the therapeutic approaches in hypnosis.


(Trans Generation)
We can consider that three family generations can be at the root of our problems.

How can you free yourself from unconscious loyalty or from what is not yours?

The subconscious

The unconscious mind is our biography which means that everything is engraved on our lifeline (trauma, disappointment, stress, and so on).

About 2% of the information is retained at the conscious level while the other 98% is at the unconscious level. This deeper level in the unconscious mind is related for example to our individual biography, generations / family ancestry (children, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents), historical and family contexts and values, all of which are part of each and every one of us.

Throughout Nature, there is a phenomenon that allows polarity to qualify for one or the other pole of a system. For example in the field of Electricity there is a negative and a positive pole, in Biology, a female and a male principle, etc. This means that from atoms to human beings to astrophysics systems these natural phenomena have two poles. Our human brain also suggests the idea of polarity with its two hemispheres so it is reasonable to think that the very structure of the brain has conditioned the duality of the human thought process.

EQ is the Emotional Quotient
– our intuitive side –
the brain’s right hemisphere

IQ is the Intelligence Quotient
– our rational side –
the brain’s left hemisphere

What is the collective unconscious?

Our rational side (IQ) is connected to our intuitive side (QE). The latter operates in a more complex and broad framework as it opens to the dimension of the unconscious mind.

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung, born in 1875, discovered through his work what he called the human “collective unconscious” (as opposed to the “personal unconscious”). An unconscious that encompasses all of humanity and which is the psyche legacy of each human being’s past, comprised by latent memories from our ancestral and evolutionary past which includes our family conflicts as well as gifts (for example for music or business).

This psyche legacy is the complementary side of the human instincts’ legacy. The collective unconscious contains archetypes.

What are archetypes?

Archetypes constantly vibrate within our mind field and we can say that they shape the future or what is to become of living and specifically the evolution of the human species.

Here are a few examples of archetypes: the traveler, the artist, the lover, the sportsperson, the saboteur, the victim, the parent, the child, the hermit, etc. Every individual has archetypes which are somewhat of character traits which manifest themselves in several spheres of our lives.

When archetypes become conscious and assimilated by the mind they can bring exceptional creativity to the individual. If archetypes remain in the unconscious mind or are repressed (parts of ourselves that we do not let emerge), they can create feelings of emptiness and unhappiness from not knowing what is our life’s purpose.

What do symbols represent?

Symbols act as mediators between the conscious and the unconscious minds. Indeed, as seen in analytical psychology, the symbol enables the unification of the two poles (conscious – subconscious) by producing images that can be assimilated by the psyche.

For example human beings have five senses which transmit messages or symbols such as dreams. The symbol can be considered as a key by which intuition opens doors enabling our understanding of reality.

Examples of symbols:
Object – icon – image – photo – geometry shape – song – smell – texture, and so on.

A symbol is generated by one of the 5 senses …
A person imagining or visualizing a lined notebook can make a connection with childhood memories in elementary school… Or another person remembers a specific feeling or time in life while listening to an old song.
