Psychotherapy is defined as a way of relating to and responding to another person in which the individual is assisted in exploring his or her thoughts, feelings, and behavior in order to develop self-awareness, and then assisted in identifying and utilizing one’s strengths in order to cope more effectively with life by making appropriate decisions or taking appropriate action.
As a psychotherapist, Dr Hans Vischjager approaches problems holistically, tailoring his approach to each patient’s unique needs, so achieving a twofold impact that has been demonstrated to be effective. HYPNOTHERAPY is a highly successful and rapid form of psychotherapy that makes use of the natural phenomena of hypnosis to obtain instant access to the patient’s subconscious roots of the presenting problem.
This method can be used to address smoking, slimming, addictions, performance, stress, anxiety, worry, and phobias.
HYPNOANALYSIS assists the therapist in guiding the client’s assimilation of the genuine lessons and identifies inappropriate responses. Understanding the patient’s previously misdirected reaction results in a shift in the patient’s current reactions. This also includes regressing to a previous lifetime for therapeutic purposes.
This can be used to address phobias, anxiety, lack of confidence, memory problems, and depression, to name a few.
