Of Two Minds: A mind/body concert for healing

The additional value of Hypnosis in Psychotherapy

Some neuroscience data of psychotherapy, matching with clinical experience demonstrate which processes are required for promoting health and wellbeing.  ‘Brain-wise’ therapists mobilize these processes. Accessing implicit memories, specific therapeutic communication and interactions, the state of hypnosis contributes to therapeutic reconsolidation processes and lasting changes. Symptoms are seen as the best way one had to deal with some issues when they arose, and/or as an expression of implicit memory, from where one can open doors to find change processes. Therapeutic interactions in hypnosis mobilize hidden potentials in the therapist and the clients alike.

Workshop: Of Two Minds: A mind/body concert for healing

Discovering change processes

You get an overview/ familiarize yourself with a seven step therapeutic reconsolidation process.  The workshop starts with some ideas/examples of how to look at invalidating symptoms or complaints. Symptoms are seen as the best way one had to deal with some issues when they arose, and/or as an expression of implicit memory, from where one can open doors to find change processes. Some questionnaires on schema therapy and clients observations give some ideas about connections they may have to underlying schemas and early life experiences. A rich variety of common and new hypnosis exploratory methods give access to implicit memories. Accessing resources in hypnosis offers relief and helps to release old pains and suffering and develop new self-images and revalidate one-self. Therapists benefit from more rewarding work and experiences when they see these changes, instead of sharing the vicious circles of never-ending complaints and suffering of their clients.
