Was ist hypno-systemische Kommunikation?
Hypno-systemic conversation is a method to create a supportive dialogue. The aim of this method is to "direct" the client's attention to solutions. To do this, I ask questions above all: questions that enable seeking solutions. This approach is based on the idea that every human being is largely unconsciously self-regulating.
What happens in our Conversations?
In conversation, we search for those interfaces most appropriate for you to address consciously to influence your self-regulation, to identify solutions. This is done primarily through the ability of each person to direct his or her attention.
What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis in the "narrower" sense means to create a sleep-like state. The body is deeply relaxed and, depending on the depth of relaxation, the consciousness is sometimes more and sometimes less awake. "Hypnotic" work in the broader, far more frequent sense, produces a changed state of attention differing from everyday consciousness. This is only possible with the consent of the person being hypnotized, who then goes into a kind of trance. This helps to more easily bring the (mostly logical) conscious and the (mostly holistic/emotive) unconscious into a good balance.
Working with deep relaxation is not always necessary, nor may it in very rare cases even be possible.
What is helpful about hypno-systemic conversation?
Very often it is the "simple" conversation that is helpful. Systemic work is solution-oriented and seeks to understand the wider context, the system, through specific questions. Based on the assumption that a person always regulates him- or herself for a good goal or reason in a way that may only seem problematic in a specific context, problems are also seen as solutions for something that has not yet been understood positively. For this purpose, it sometimes makes sense to recognize, acknowledge and appreciate old patterns in depth; and sometimes it makes sense to head directly towards the goal. The conversation "swings" back and forth between different interfaces and states of attention until you feel a clear direction emerge to shape your everyday life.
Is Hypnosis always necessary?
Working with deep relaxation is not always necessary, nor may it in very rare cases even be possible. Very often it is the conversation as such from which you benefit most. Systemic conversations are always target-focussed and explores with the help of mindful questions the relevant factors in the big picture of your life.
Based on the assumption there is a good reason for the kind of selfregulation of an individual a “problem” is being viewed as a solution at the same time. Maybe the “solution” is simply not recognized as such for the moment
Sometimes it is useful to understand underlying behavioural patterns more deeply, sometimes getting to the goal directly is more helpful. Depending on your needs we utilize different states of mind and foci until you feel clear about your solution and are able to connect with your inner strength with ease.
