During the ESH congress at Sorrento, the author had the opportunity to present the benefits of her 30 years of experience in the domain of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy: In this article, she shares her personal method with other therapists to let them discover how efficient the techniques are and how lasting the results are. Be it for a lack of capacity of resilience or to develop inner forces and resources, the author uses always the same seven steps structure for her therapies to allow the patient to fully recover his/her capabilities and consequently to find a solution to his/her problems. These steps correspond to the seven centers of vital energy, called "chakras" in the Indian philosophy; centers that are located along the body’s spinal axis at spots that correspond to specific organs. During the hypnosis session, using adapted metaphors, the therapist progresses step by step to unlock and reinforce these centers. Such a method allows the therapist to follow a protocol that is unambiguous and thus prevents her from being drawn into the patient’s misinterpretation of his/her problems. This method allows the patient to assess his/her own improvements during the course of the therapy.
