Steven Leeds and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy
Milton H. Erickson, M.D. is considered the father of modern hypnotherapy. The therapy he engendered, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, is one of the fastest growing and influential branches of hypnotherapy today. His methods have inspired short-term strategic therapy, the rebirth of guided imagery, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to name a few. Even John Bradshaw in both of his acclaimed series on PBS, frequently quotes Erickson and calls him “the greatest therapist who ever lived.”
Steven, following in the path of Erickson, believes in the wisdom of the unconscious mind, and in the theory that people have all the resources necessary to make changes inside themselves. For Steven, the job of the therapist is to help the client re-establish his/her connection with his/her inner resources and to develop a rapport between the conscious and the unconscious mind. Steve’s approach is to create a soothing, rhythmic flow designed to engage the listener, experientially, in the present moment and in doing so, activate the connection to the flow of unconscious resources in the form of inner symbols, sounds and bodily sensations promoting healing and well being.
