Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution

Parts Therapy is based on the concept that our personality is composed of a number of various parts, which are aspects of the subconscious. In other words, we all wear different hats. The facilitator acts as a mediator to help clients resolve inner conflicts.

Have you experienced hypnotherapy in order to resolve a problem or overcome an undesired habit, only to find yourself backsliding? If so, then parts therapy for inner conflict resolution might be the ideal technique for you!

This complex hypnotic technique often works with clients after other techniques have failed. The facilitator guides the client into a state of hypnosis and then talks to that part of the subconscious that wants to prevent the client from changing...and then talks to the part motivating the client to improve his/her life. The process resembles mediation; in that the facilitator asks the right questions in order to help the parts resolve their own differences. The process is designed to empower the client!

Originally pioneered by Charles Tebbetts during the 1960's and 1970's, parts therapy has evolved throughout the years into a very effective technique when combined with hypnosis and facilitated by someone trained in the use of client-cantered parts therapy. Before his passing, Tebbetts asked Roy Hunter to continue his work.

Roy has passed his knowledge onto others in order help individuals with conflict resolution. I had the privilege to attend Roy’s Training and also qualified in training others to become parts therapy Facilitators.

Why Is Parts Therapy Effective?

Rather than the client giving away his or her power to someone else who implants the solutions in the form of suggestions, the client discovers the best resolution to an inner conflict by answering questions asked by the facilitator at appropriate times. Even as the parts therapy process begins, I set the client-cantered tone by allowing each part that emerges to disclose its name (or title) and primary purpose. My entire approach involves asking questions that motivate each part to disclose its purpose, and to find the resolution to the presenting problem. When facilitated in a client-cantered manner, parts therapy empowers the client!

Several years ago a psychologist asked me to use parts therapy to help her resolve an inner conflict. Upon emerging from hypnosis, her first words were, "That solution was so simple, I wish I'd thought of it myself!" I quickly reminded her that the resolution had indeed come from her own mind, and not mine. She smiled and agreed, and acknowledged the value of parts therapy.

Client-cantered parts therapy helps clients attain greater empowerment, because the power to change truly lies within the client rather than in the therapist. Our job is to help the client discover those answers by asking the right questions. Then, when the answers come from the client's own inner mind (instead of from someone else), the client often has greater confidence and greater self-esteem as side benefits to a successful resolution of the primary concern.
