Psychotherapy & Hypno-analysis

Psychotherapy enables us to deal with issues that have a much a deeper cause. Working together I help clients understand their emotions and learn new mechanisms to manage their cognitive processes. Psychotherapy usually requires between 6-12 sessions, but varies client to client.

Hypno-analysis is a form of hypnotherapy, where I work with clients to discover and resolve the root cause of the concern that they present with.  It draws on concepts from psychoanalysis and uses these with hypnotherapy techniques. The aim is to address deeper long-standing issues or behaviours.  This process is often longer than suggestion hypnotherapy and on average takes six to twelve sessions. Each session ideally should take place 7 days apart.  I will therefore make it clear with clients from the outset if this therapy is what would be recommended, so they are aware of the time and cost that they need to commit to.  

Psychotheraoy and Hypno-analysis may help with alcohol addiction, anxiety, anger,  confidence, eating disorders, general anxiety, insomnia, PTSD, self-esteem, social anxiety, stress, trauma and more.

There are two main techniques used for hypno-analysis: regression to cause and Freudian Free Association. Regression to cause approach differs from Freudian Free Association. In my opinion both are equally valid, as they offer similar but different therapy styles to suit the client and the cause and achieve the desired outcome. Regression to cause is more appropriate for a client that presents a singular issue, whereas Freud’s Free Association is best used when a client presents with multiple symptoms and issues. Free Association allows for a client to recall multiple memories, one after another without conscious thought.

Due the hypnotic state both allow to bypass the CCF and avoid subconscious resistance. Both are entirely valid within therapy as they allow for the client to regress to the initial sensitising event, dealing with repressed emotions. Both allow for the client to have an abreaction, clearing the negative emotions or feelings associated with the repressed memories.  Regression to cause is perhaps considered to provide more direct route to the underlying cause, as the client focuses on when they most recently felt symptoms or emotions associated with the problem. I work with clients using time track therapy or varying technique.

Both methods allow the client to search for the Initial Sensitising Event, which was usually created during childhood, usually within primary or early secondary socialisation, and releasing the repressed emotions, clearing all Secondary Sensitising Events (SSEs) along the way.
