FAQs (frequently asked questions)
How does hypnosis work?
In hypnosis the patient is – by techniques of trance-induction – lead into a relaxed state in which typically feelings and other subconscious processes are generally more accessible. The reason for that is the intellect is reduced („reduction of the so called critical factor due to cognitive inhibition“) and thereby the limbic brain structures (in which feelings are processed) become more active and more accesssible for changes and re-evaluations of situations and feelings.
During hypnosis the mind is clear and concentrated, but more deeply connected with the subconscious so that therapeutic strategies can be used to treat „emotional injuries“ and traumata by picking them up again and freeing the dammed up emotion with the purpose of healing it out.
Can I get hypnotized?
Basically it is the case that everybody can be hypnotized as everybody knows the state of trance and is in trance twice a day: shortly after waking up and also shortly before falling asleep. Most people are even several hundred times a day in the state of trance, e.g. when getting lost in a movie or in a good book or while looking outside from the window after working too long in front of the computer.
Yet, for some people it is more difficult to „give away control“. For them other therapeutic strategies might be more efficient or they – be it in therapeutic sessions with me or by self-training at home – will have to practice before hypnotherapy can become „the most efficient“ therapeutic tool for their problem. In this case a high amount of self-motivation is necessary.
So a simple question is in need of a differentiated answer:
Basically everyone can be hypnotized, yet, for some it is easier than for others who first might have to (re-)learn it.
How does hypnosis feel like?
Hypnosis feels just like the state just before falling asleep or just shortly after waking up. Also when we get lost in the story of a movie we find ourselves in trance, the typical state of hypnosis.
So, hypnosis is just a state of deep relaxation while simultaneously being extremeley focused with one’s attention on one thing, e.g. on a certain activity (going through the next jump just before the competition starts might be an extremely useful exercise for a ski jumper while for a trauma patient it will probably be more useful to go back into „the traumatic moment“ with the purpose of releasing the dammed emotions in which she/he got stuck.)
Do I loose control under hypnosis?
The answer ist yes and no.To make it possible for the hypnotic suggestions of the hypnotherapist to stimulate changes in your „emotional memory“ it is necessary to reduce the so called „critical factor “ (the intellect) so that they can be caught up by your subconsciousness (instead of being blocked) for the purpose of the wanted changes. To make this possible it is at least partly necessary to give away part of the control you might typically have over your subconscious in your everyday life.
Yet, if a new suggestion is given to you by the therapist and it is against the therapy contract or if it is not compatible with your value system it is always possible to increase the critical factor again with the purpose of blocking the suggestion and „not letting it inside“.
Basically these are decisions every patient is dynamically making from suggestion to suggestion given by the hypnotherapist, while the better the patient-therapist-relationship is and the better the whole process has been – in cooperation – prepared by both parties blocking suggestions given by the hypnotherapist will become less or unnecessary for the patient.
Reasons against a hypnotherapy approach/reducing the effectivenes of the hypnotherapic approach
The use of neuroleptics is very difficult as under the influence of them brain often can not re-evaluate – this is important for any therapeutic advancement – emotions.
Acute psychoses such as an acute schizophrenic, acute delusion, acute manic conditions.
Strong addiction behavior (alcohol and other legal or illegal drugs).
Strongly distinctive borderline personality.
A recent myocardial infarction, a stroke or a thrombosis, in which the treating physician advises not to go into a deep relaxation (to be clarified with your physician!).
Acute or chronic diseases which oppose physical relaxation (consult with your physician!).
Lack of self-motivation to bring yourself into the therapeutic process.
In case of acute suicidal behavior/ intentions, a hypnosis treatment should always be carried out in agreement with the attending physician / therapist as hypnotherapy can release inhibited emotions and sessions also can have „after-effects“, e.g. in form of abreactions.
How much does a therapy cost and how can I make an appointment for an anamnesis talk?

Why go for hypnosis, hypnotherapy and body-psychotherapy?
A few sentences about why I mainly treat patients using hypnotherapy (especially regression therapy / hypnoanalysis) and sensorimotor body psychotherapy:
Science is currently taking a more intensive look at the so-called personalized medicine (medication specifically targeted at the individual).
Effectiveness of hypnosis and evolutionary „architecture“ of the central nervous system largely insignificant in traditional medicine therapy forms
The role of subconscious processes in stress-conditioned, chronic psychological and physical (psychosomatic) diseases on the other hand remains largely unexplored. Just as largely unexplored – at least from a cybernetic point of view – are indicative constants of the human nervous system such as:

This is also the reason why I decided to go down a different path than the studies of traditional school medicine (such as behavioural therapy) and mainly offer hypnotherapy and body psychotherapy today. Through procedures such as hypnosis, it is possible to directly affect the vital regulatory processes in both body and brain – these include feelings, sensation of pain, the function of the inner organs and the immune system.
The effectiveness of hypnotherapy and body-oriented psychotherapy (performed by me personally as an integration of sensorimotor body psychotherapy with hypnotherapy) has been the subject of extensive scientific study when it comes to affective disorders (including anxiety, panic attacks, depression and burnout). By combining these procedures, it is often possible to successfully treat stress-related, chronic physical illnesses.
My various therapy and treatment approaches have proven to be particularly successful in treating the following psychological and physical (stress-related psychosomatic) diseases:
- Mental disorders such as depression, burnout and anxiety, e.g. generalized anxiety, panic attacks and disorders, various phobias as well as depressive moods, exhaustion and burnout in general; but also concentration disorders or ADHD.
- Chronic pain such as migraine, headache, back pain, shoulder pain and neck pain, hip-, knee- and foot pain, abdominal pain, throat pain, arm and hand pain, scar pain or pelvic floor pain (CPPS)
- Functional disorders such as respiratory distress, dizziness, drowsiness, dysphagia, chronic nausea, cardiac-, gastrointestinal- and bladder problems or tinnitus.
- Movement disorders such as insecure gait, stiffness, weakness, wrong posture and restricted movement (even after a stroke).
- Autoimmune diseases and problems with the internal organs in general (especially if they have arisen after psychologically stressful situations).
The results obtained in my Munich practice using hypnotherapy as well as body psychotherapy applied in connection with hypnotherapeutic approaches are just as surprising as they are encouraging:
In many cases, hypnosis allows my patients to reach results they may not have reached otherwise or at the very least not in that timeframe.
The difference is definitely noticeable:
From 5 to rarely over 10 hypnosis sessions (taken over the course of a few weeks or months), compared to sometimes >100 conversational psychotherapy or >300 psychoanalysis sessions (in each case spread over several years).
The main reason for this is that, in hypnosis, the therapeutic access to the „emotional memory“ (more precisely the brain stem and the limbic system of the brain in which all feelings are being processed) is greatly facilitated so that the therapist’s words can change emotions as well as release unprocessed ones (accumulated emotions). Access to the limbic brain structures, on the other hand, remains largely closed during non-trance procedures, such as in conversational psychotherapy, for instance.
That is why I consider hypnotherapy (hypnoanalysis and regression therapy in general) as well as sensorimotor body psychotherapy (associated with hypnotherapeutic approaches) to be the supreme disciplines of therapeutic methods.
I have developed my own way of working:
It is based on my training in therapeutic hypnotherapy (among otthers Dr. Norbert) as well as further training sessions in body psychotherapy. These methods, which are highly recognized in alternative medicine, are complemented by further techniques that meet the latest scientific standards. Both my psychological background and research allow me to relate psychological and physical processes during my hypnotherapeutic and body psychotherapeutic activities so as to achieve long lasting results via a professional therapy.
I expect my patients to bring along some healthy self-motivation as well as a little patience – especially with themselves. Even if, according to my experience, the integration of hypnotherapy, body psychotherapy in association with hypnotherapy and psychotherapy usually achieve significantly faster progress and better results than conventional methods, but always the best results can be achieved if one takes a little time for his personal development. This is the only way to turn a therapeutic process into a process of personal growth.
Most of my clients have already gone through one or more conventional psychotherapies, physiotherapies, or other school-based therapies before they come to me. Although many of these patients are considered unresponsive to treatment in school medicine terms, I often solve problems that are not achievable through conventional forms of therapy via the integrative approach – for example, through hypnosis.
I usually work in a cause-and-solution-oriented manner and treat symptoms that my patients perceive as disturbing, by tackling the root cause. Often times a small but decisive change of perspective – distancing oneself from the symptom and focussing on available resources – can also lead to significant change.
Despite all the patience necessary for therapeutic change to process, my way of working is very intense and goal-oriented. Thus, I am able to offer my patients the best possible treatment in a given time and financial framework. As a private practitioner, I rely on recommendations from my treated patients and I am very glad that many of these patients are satisfied with their treatment and feel compelled to recommend my services.
