Milton H. Erickson was the most successful psychotherapist of all times. In Ericksonian therapy an experience for the client is created that changes the client at his core, including his very state of consciousness, beliefs, behaviors and self-image. It uses what the client already brings and creates a solution out of the seeming problem. It is highly individualized so that it can be said it  invents a new therapy for each client. Hypnotherapy facilities a state of consciousness of heightened awareness that maximizes any form of growth and learning. It is one of the primary ways of facilitating change in Ericksonian therapy. Rev. Jakob has extensively trained and fully completely the trainings of the Erickson Institute as well as years of monthly one on one training with Jeffrey K. Zeig the founder and director of the Institute.
