Energy therapy is a broad concept that can be used on both healing, havening, mindfullness, hypnosis and guided medtitation. I use the term energy therapy as a collective name, as I use several of the methods when I help a client in this.
What is hypnosis? In the media, it is often portrayed as something mysterious and magical, but there are also many misunderstandings about what it is. The word hypnosis is derived from the Greek and means sleep. Today, among others, Lars-Erik Uneståhl, ph.d. psychologist and Ph.D., talks. in psychology about an alternative state of mind, AST. This can be explained by being guided in different levels to let go of time perception, beliefs and logical thinking and create new insights. It resembles an awake dream state. A person in hypnosis retains his value and morality and can at any time "step out of" hypnosis. No one can be hypnotized against their will, although we have seen films that this is possible. You are thus totally aware, even under very deep hypnosis.

A review of statistical studies of hypnosis in relation to talk therapy and CBT by Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. was presented in American Health Magazine, vol. 7. It gave the following overview
Examples of areas that have been shown to respond well to treatment in combination with hypnosis:
- Alcohol use, drugs and other self-medication
- Relationship with food and exercise
- Asthma, some allergies
- Feelings of panic, stress, fears
- Phobias such as fear of heights, flying, spiders, snakes, etc.
- Chronic pain
- Public speaking
The list goes on and on. The thing to be aware of is that there are no guarantees that I will succeed in helping you the first time. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But if there is the willingness in you to get rid of something that weighs you down or feels like a hard baggage to keep carrying, then this is a helpful form of therapy.
