Hypnoanalysis is a regression therapy. The idea is that we seek to find and remove the root cause of the anxiety or emotional state associated with a traumatic event from the past – usually from childhood. When found the root cause of a problem or symptom can then be resolved in the mind. The main difference between Hypnoanalysis and other forms of talk therapy, is conventional therapies usually only deals with the presenting problem and do not get to the root of the problem.
Two of the most commonly used techniques in Hypnoanalysis.
One of the most powerful methods is Free Association pioneered by Sigmund Freud.The other Pin Point analysis which as the name suggests is a direct route to the issue buried in the subconscious mind.
Free association works by allowing one memory to lead into another without any logical thought, interpretation, or intervention. Just allowing thoughts to drift along from one concept to another without attempting to make any sense of it whatsoever. When working with issues that upset us the subconscious mind will do it’s best to protect us from those memories and will form a resistance towards the therapy. The hypnotherapist’s job is to help the client through that resistance to the truth. It sounds easy, and with the right client/therapist combination, it is easy and one of the most powerful forms of therapy.
Pin Point Analysis
Pin Point Analysis seeks the same end result but get’s there via a more direct route. The hypnotherapist will use various techniques designed to access the originating cause, or at least a much earlier memory. From that memory, they go back further still, then further still, until the initial event has been accessed. Once there the event can be worked through until an understanding and enlightenment it reached.
Each method has its own particular strengths and weaknesses and a professional hypnotherapist should be familiar, practiced, and confident with both, and easily able to decide what is the best for any individual client.
Whichever method or a combination of both is used the concept is bring you to the Initial Sensitising Event. Usual this event has occurred in childhood. With these cases we are talking about a complete and lasting release by finding and removing originating causes.
Hypnoanalysis can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. The emotional material that comes up can be difficult to deal with. Some people are immensely resistant to the treatment as they feel vulnerable. A good hypnotherapist will be able to help you deal whatever arises.
Usually if anxiety is present it will be recommended that you go through the hypnoanalytical process. If together with your therapist you decide that there is a need to discover the underlying cause of the presenting problem and it is in your best interests, then know this… the results of Hypnoanalysis can often be profound and long lasting.
