What is hypnotherapy?
In this short video interview Pieter explains in great detail what hypnotherapy is, what it is NOT, and what are some of the common fears and issues people are concerned about when they think about hypnosis.LEARN MORE
Pieter makes extensive use of Therapeutic Imagery. Therapeutic Imagery is a healing modality where we get in touch with the emotions and interpretations we have associated with certain experiences in our lives. These emotions and interpretations are lodged in the sub-conscious mind and cause us to project unhappiness, frustration, anger and what not upon our already distorted view of reality. Therapeutic imagery works with archetypal images and symbols, through journeys (like guided meditations), and helps the client to reframe or release these distortions. The therapist only sets up a structure of a journey, and within this structure the client finds his or her own solution, with the understanding that the mind has the innate capacity to heal itself. This can be done with or without hypnosis, but in my experience hypnosis with Therapeutic Imagery is much more effective..

Frequently asked questions
CAN I BE HYPNOTIZED?
Yes, everybody has the ability to be hypnotized. But we cannot hypnotize anybody against their will. If you’re willing and open-minded we can work together successfully. As a therapist I just help you overcome obstacles and help you see beyond your current limited belief systems. Sometimes we don’t see clearly and need some help.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO BE HYPNOTIZED? Hypnosis provides a sense of profound physical and mental relaxation that is both refreshing and revitalizing. It is also good for your overal sense of (physical and mental) wellbeing.
WILL I GO TO SLEEP? No. When in hypnosis, you hear everything that is said. You are, in fact, hyper conscious. You merely change your brain frequency to either alpha or tetha.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T COME OUT OF HYPNOSIS? That is impossible. All trances end, whether formally ended by the hypnotherapist or ended naturally by you. During the session you always remain in control. It’s like reading a book and putting it down. You shift focus from the outside to the inside.
IN HYPNOSIS, WILL I DO ANYTHING I DON’T WANT TO DO OR SAY ANYTHING I DON’T WANT TO SAY?
No, that only happens in the movies. What we do is therapy! You are not loosing awareness in any way or shape, you merely turn your attention from the outside to the inside. As a hypnotherapist, I am seriously committed to helping you achieve your therapeutic goals. You cannot and will not ever be compelled to do or say anything under hypnosis that is in conflict with your personal ethical standards and/or desires.
