Psychotherapy method: Hypnotherapy

Many different schools exist in the field of psychotherapy (cognitive behavior therapy, psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy, family therapy, etc.). In Austria there is a total of 23 accredited psychotherapy methods. I specialize in ‚Hypnosepsychotherapie‘ (Psychodynamic Hypnotherapy), an integrative psychotherapy method recognized by the federal Austrian Psychotherapy Act.

Psychodynamic hypnotherapy is based on psychodynamic theory, but also contains elements of other psychotherapeutic schools, such as Milton Erickson’s hypnotherapy, systemic family therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

For psychodynamic hypnotherapy, like other psychodynamic methods, such as psychoanalysis, unconscious mental structures and conflicts are of high importance. However, the unconscious is understood not only as domain of conflict, but also as a source of capabilities and skills.

The treatment offered is personalized to meet the individual needs of each patient on a case by case basis. Depending on the personal background and issue, different treatment techniques will be applied.
