HYPNOSIS

"Hypnosis does not change the person or his past life experiences. It helps them to learn more about themselves and to express themselves more adequately. Therapeutic trance helps people to overcome their learned limitations so that they can fully explore and use their resources".
M.H. Erickson
HYPNOSIS is a natural or altered state of consciousness, similar to that which occurs when we make automatic or habitual gestures, a completely spontaneous and natural state.
In this particular state of consciousness, by reducing the activity of the dominant hemisphere - that is, the rational and conscious

activity - by entering into what is called a "hypnotic trance" and by stimulating the analogue area of the brain, the individual can draw from his unconscious mind, modified in this particular state of consciousness, the most creative and emotional part and not mediated by reason,

all the personal resources and potentialities it contains, leading to the solution of the problem.

With hypnosis you can also learn to reduce acute pain or to accept chronic pain, because it acts on the anxiety factors which, together with the social-cultural condition, are added to the nervous perception of pain.

ABOUT EMDR

EMDR therapy is theoretically based on the AIP model (Adaptive Information Processing): traumatic memories are stored in the memory along with emotions, cognitions and distressing cognitive sensations, causing discomfort and symptomatology in the person even after many years. Unprocessed traumatic memories can become dysfunctional and lead to many disorders. The basis of the therapy is the use of eye movements

or bilateral stimulation. Memories lose their traumatic impact, change, lose their emotional charge and consequently the physical sensations and negative sensations associated with them are reduced; through cognitive restructuring the patient changes the perspective in dealing with everyday life, changes the evaluation of self, incorporates the appropriate emotions and eliminates physical reactions.
Numerous neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post-treatment effects of EMDR, which has been recognised as an

evidence-based method for the treatment of post-traumatic disorders by the American Psychological Association (1998-2002),

the American Psychiatric Association (2004), the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (2010) and our Ministry of Health since 2003.

In August 2013, the World Health Organization recognised EMDR as an effective treatment for trauma and related disorders.
Research has highlighted the neurobiological changes that occur during each session of EMDR, illustrating a proven neurobiological efficacy

and confirming the link between clinical outcomes and some changes in brain structure and function.
