Episode 87: Hypnosis Week
In this conversation, Alex Smith a.k.a. Jonathan Royle, plays the devil's advocate in discussing Regression to Cause and The Devil's Therapy: Hypnosis Practitioner's Guide to Effective Regression Hypnotherapy.
6:38 WHAT? Alex takes me to task when I suggest that hypnosis is the least important part of the therapeutic process.
12:03 Why didn't I listen when I was told, "Regression - don't go there"? It began with popcorn.
14:21 My first regression session with Stephen Parkhill, author of Answer Cancer. What I discovered through the process and, more interestingly, after the session.
21:25 Is regression hypnotherapy mind rape? A common objection to Regression to Cause is that it is retraumatizing the client. But is it?
21:50 Questioning the root cause, ISE, or initial focal point/trigger philosophy. Do you really need to find the ISE when there are so many alternate methods available?
25:00 Why bother with Regression to Cause when there are far more reliable ways which avoid false memories and reconstructed memory syndrome?
28:30 Why take a person back to a traumatic event when you can use an imagined event to achieve the same result without mind-raping them or causing them to feel upset?
33:55 What is the purpose for going back to the ISE?
35:45 Is regression for everybody?
38:50 How to up your game as a Regression Hypnosis Practitioner and get better results. (Wendie busts loose. )
39:32 What is the foundation of The Devil's Therapy?
40:38 Where does the Real Power to create real and lasting change reside?
44:40 Alex shares his approach to Inner Child Work.
47:43 Another common question - Is there even such a thing as an ISE?
48:40 Why use regression when the Conscious Mind knows what the cause of the problem is?
50:35 How the generalizing effect of the Subconscious Mind works like a spiders web. Why you must test your results.
51:58 The quickest way to test a single session fix.
53:40 Is there just one underlying cause to every problem in any ISE?
58:48 What are the Core Needs I look for in a childhood event?
1:00 When does the Wall of Amnesia appear? What's the biggest problem occurring in any ISE?
1:02 How Inner Child Work is a form of Soul Retrieval.
1:03 Is the ISE always in childhood? What was Freud's view?
1:06 What about Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder? (Suggested Reading; The Body Bears the Burden by Dr. Robert Scaer)
1:10 The Mind is very simple when you understand how consciousness grows and develops into a sense of self over time.
1:11 A working definition of Trauma: The perception of threat while in a state of helpless. An example of how traumatic experiences can turn out to be no big deal.
1:13 Victim Mentality is hyper-vulnerability. What if the traumatic event was six months ago? Rape victim examples.
1:18 Repression is avoidance. The purpose of regression is to put an end to avoidance. Dissociation is common in a traumatic experience. How would I process an event of extreme trauma?
1:25 A rare moment for Alex.
1:28 Suggested reading: Scientifically Questioning Regression to Cause Used by Hypnotherapists by Adam Eason.
1:30 Wendie's Final Words. (Bit of a rant but worth the listen!)
