Milton Erickson was a master therapist and promoted the philosophy, “Whatever you can imagine, you can accomplish.” He personally knew that to be true when he overcame polio twice in his life and discovered the amazing abilities all people have to recover from pain, illness, trauma, and create the life they want.
More recent advancements in the research on hypnosis and the brain reveals a deeper understanding of the remarkable ability of the mind and body to heal and move into states of thriving for longer periods of time. By accessing and building the needed resources to overcome overwhelming events, past difficulties, and old programming, clinicians can help their clients recover themselves, create their best possible future, and assist in emotional charge disappearing.
