"At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one's lost self."
- Brendan Francis
"All parts of us win when we do the Core Transformation Process. We discover the deepest positive purposes our parts have for us, and transform parts that trouble us into inner allies. "
- Andreas & Andreas, Core Transformation
This process, created by Connirae and Tamara Andreas, is used to transform a part of the self that the individual experiences as painful or otherwise conflicted. In hypnosis, the client asks the troublesome part what it wants. Then the part is asked, if it had what it wants, what deeper and more important need would get met from having the first want satisfied. For example, if the part wanted to avoid work and got that want fulfilled, it might then get another want met, that of relaxation. The question is repeated until the individual arrives at one of five Core States, such as Love and Inner Peace.
Through other steps, the hypnotized client brings this Core State throughout his or her body and through a timeline of his or her life from the first emergence of the troublesome part to the present. The client is then given suggestions about entering and experiencing the Core State directly without the intermediate steps developed by the hitherto conflicted part.
This process is categorized as Hypnotic Parts Therapy.
About Hypnotic Parts Therapy
Ever since Freud conceptualized the tri-partite division of the psyche as the Id, Superego and Ego, many other therapies have worked with a parts-orientation. These include, among others, Carl Jung’s Active Imagination, Transactional Analysis, Inner Child Work, Voice Dialogue, Gestalt Underdog and Top Dog, Analytical Parts Therapy, and Moore’s Lover/Magician/King/Warrior.
The intention of all of these versions of parts therapy is to give expression to otherwise suppressed or alienated voices/attitudes within the psyche and then integrate them with the hitherto dominant viewpoint. When utilized, these parts therapies are in themselves hypnotic; but they are greatly enhanced in effect with the deepening of formal hypnosis. Any of the parts therapies listed above may be used in the services offered here.
