Gestalt therapy + hypnotherapy = modern method of correction of the human psyche

Through Gestalt therapy, the therapist changes, creates and strengthens a new image of the patient’s personality. The therapist helps the patient to identify, understand and analyze engrams – memory cells, charged with negative emotions or pain. They are responsible for the appearance of such symptoms as anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive states, psychosomatic disorders, and others. Through a special study of the engrams, emotions are discharged and the engram becomes an ordinary memory doesn’t react to similar life situations anymore.

If it is done in a trance state, then we have a hypnogestal. It is effective because of during a trance of definite specific quality, the active compound (analyzing) works directly by subconscious structures. You can change the choice of the solution that led to the situation – the engram changes to the opposite or alternative, thereby completely removing the negative emotion. If the emotion leaves the engram, it also can leave all similar situations up to the current symptom. If the emotion accompanies the symptom, that means, there is an associating relationship between the emotion and the symptom, then when the emotion disappears, the symptom disappears either.

LEAVE A REQUEST for consultation

The therapist can intervene in the course of memory recovery, ask questions, play the empty chair method, focus on something. He can return the client to the earliest situation again and again, restoring and analyzing the details. In hypnosis, it is possible to restore memory at a very early age, right up to the first days after birth, when it becomes possible to relieve the emotional charge even from birth injuries.

If the hypnotherapist builds the procedure of psychocorrection correctly, then the psyche as if “returns” to the memory that lies at the base of the neurosis. The therapist directively asks the psyche to perform the following sequence:

  • to review this negative experience;
  • to forgive and let it go;
  • to change the plot of the event;
  • to feel strength and control where it seemed impossible;
  • to remove the accompanying emotion partially or completely.

At the same time, the “recycled” memory stops to be negatively colored. It is not forgotten, but it just quietly leaves in the background. And the client finds in himself a steady improvement or even a complete recovery.

Here is an example of a dialog session:

According to the diagram it can be seen that the main work related to emotional discharge started at the 17th minute. Stress (the degree of emotionally charged reactivity of the efferent mechanism) to -20 is typical for a very strong worrying about emotional states (in the case of this patient, insult to the boss: an episode from her working routine was recalled). At the 29th minute, we see the experience of the root situation, when the mother left her family and her child (then the patient was 7 years old).

There are two episodes on the surface, – the latest and the earliest – are not related to each other: in the last episode, the chief left the patient out in the cold, forgotten to give her a gift on March 8, and in the earliest episode her mother leaves her at the age of seven. Studied the emotional consequences of the first, the earliest episode, we understand that along with resentment, some emotional states could arise, such as: fear, despair, insecurity, fear of loneliness (being abandoned), etc. Here we see a parallel with the most recent episode, which could easily initiate the feeling of being unnecessary, abandoned, forgotten, which could easily serve as a catalyst for resentment.

Strong emotional experiences and constant return to similar emotional reactions / conditions may initiate psychosomatic disorders in some people, such as the appearance of red spots on the face and neck every time the stress factor causes the same emotional reaction. It is with this symptomatology that many people come to our specialists with. Notice, a sense of resentment, fear, disappointment in yourself, a sense of unworthiness and other emotional states are often not the reason for the visit to specialists. Only when symptoms that actually reduce the quality of life appear, people are sounding the alarm, not understanding and not knowing that if they had applied earlier, then the help would have been much more effective.

The graph above was made possible only with a help of our direct biological communication equipment.

Here is another example:

A patient came to us with a strong phobia of audiences. Determined the earliest situation with this emotion, we found out that he was ridiculed at the age of four by a classmate when he tried to tell a poem in front of a group. Removing emotional tension from this situation (namely offense), we transformed emotional memory into neutral one. Engram stopped to be an engram and passed into the category of ordinary memory, thereby ceasing to react to such situations. All the symptoms disappeared.
