Ericksonian hypnosis is the result of the practice of Milton Erickson (1901-1980).
Characterized by a flexible, indirect (metaphors) and non-directive approach, this form of hypnosis has given rise to many currents of psychotherapy.
When used in psychotherapy, it is short-sighted: three to ten sessions, over a period of a few weeks to a few months, are generally considered sufficient, even for serious problems, without "relapse" or "symptom substitution". The Milwaukee Family Therapy Centre studied 5,000 cases over ten years, where the problem was solved at the first session in 60% of cases, and without any symptom substitution or relapse, in none of the cases.
For Milton Erickson, the unconscious is deeply good and powerful. It is a benevolent power with which the hypnotic state must allow cooperation. The unconscious is able to mobilize inner resources, potentialities that can lead to the desired changes. Ericksonian hypnosis aims to bring conscious and unconscious people to work together to trigger changes that are useful in solving the problem.
