MEDICAL HYPNOANALYSIS (MHA)
Medical Hypnoanalysis is dynamic, short term and directed therapy
(30 sessions or less). This medical model of psychotherapy aims to alleviate
symptoms by means of resolving the underlying subconscious causes.
It is based on the understanding that psychological symptoms can sometimes
express themselves as physical symptoms in the body. Some of the common
symptoms and unwanted behaviour that lead the client to seek therapy include
depression, phobias, obsessions, psychosomatic disorders, self-destructive and
anti-social behaviour and other emotional and psychological problems.
Just as doctors will aim to treat physical problems by first investigating the

psychological techniques to analyse both the conscious and unconscious mind
to discover the underlying cause of the client's presenting symptoms or problem.
Therapist tools to investigate the subconscious include the Word Association
Exercise, dream analysis and regressive therapy.
Based on the information retrieved from the unconscious mind, the diagnoses
made in Medical Hypnoanalysis include:
