Hypnosis will enable you to get started or moving again, to change or transform an emotional state or behavior which no longer suits you ; it can also enable you to move from one period of life to another, close a chapter and open a new one. It will also enable you to get to know yourself better.
Hypnosis has existed in different forms in all times and all cultures. Ericksonian hypnosis is a technique developed by Milton Erickson, a North American psychiatrist in the course of the XXth century. It’s a more customized and interactive approach compared to what was traditionally practiced before him.
The term Hypnosis is used both to describe a technique and the modified state of consciousness it is based on. This particular state of consciousness is one which you experience several times a day without realizing it: when you are totally absorbed in a task, a book, a film or even when you are love-struck! These are moments out of time during which you are in a different waking state during which you perceive things differently.
Since the 1990’s, this state has been identified and characterized by brain imaging (by functional MRI and PET-Scan), providing evidence of its physical existence. Scientifically, it can now be said that the state of hypnosis is a reality. Putting oneself in the state of hypnosis or doing it with a practitioner is thus intentionally reproducing a state of consciousness to serve the objective of the counseling.
It’s a state which enables the communication between our conscious (the flow of our thoughts) and our unconscious (everything which is not conscious: our learning, conditioning, body functions…). As a tree of which we can see the trunk and branches, we are familiar with our logical conscious; whereas our roots, of which we guess the existence, they are less familiar to us, just as our unconscious.
We unconscious develop emotional states and/or behaviors in response to events, some of which one day create discomfort. This discomfort is what we will be working on with hypnosis
Everyone can experience a state of hypnosis *. As hypnosis reproduces a natural and spontaneous state, everyone can experience it; however the experience differs from one person to another, and from one experience to another. The state can be more or less deep without impacting its efficiency. However, learning the method and regularly repeating the experience allows one to go more easily and quicker into the state: just like practicing a sport, the more you do, the more you progress.

I have struggled for years to end the start-stop process of smoking. Willpower just wasn’t enough, and that is why I sought out Alexandra. Her calm and measured approach served me well. Two months on from my last session I feel well armed to fight and not give into temptation. I have broken the vicious cycle of failure.

It is a pleasure to entrust your child to Mrs. Dobbs. Professional and pleasant. Her work was a great success for my son. I was very reluctant at first with sophrology and thanks to her work he is making great progress, I strongly recommend her. Best wishes (posted on Google)
