Stefan Hammel, born in 1967, is working as Ericksonian hypnotherapist, systemic therapist, protestant chaplain, head of the Institute for Hypno-Systemic Counseling in Kaiserslautern, Germany, as well as author of books and media for hypnotherapeutic and systemic practice. The focal point of his work lies in the field of family therapy, depression, anxiety and trauma, as well as working with patients and their families in hospital. In his therapeutic approach the use of metaphors, utilisation techniques, multilevel communication and nonverbal techniques of pacing and leading form a network of therapeutic interventions for changing the focus of attention towards resource perspectives.
