Rhondda Stewart: Discovering the body’s communication and how to deal with abreactions in a more naturalistic approach

The work of Candace Pert and other molecular biologists has established the reality of the mind-body connection. Symptoms arise from the body, providing information about deep inner needs and processes. These symptoms need to be regarded as essential communication from within that needs to be acknowledged and utilised.

As functional human beings, and especially as hypnotherapists (indeed as therapists of all traditions), we are aware of the reality of communication from ‘within’ coming into our conscious awareness. In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to discover the very essence and expression of our unconscious mind and its responses and how we can support that communication into positive change. You will:

  • Learn how the unconscious mind communicates through the body
  • Discover the positive communication of an abreaction and how to support the client into positive change and healing
  • Discover a naturalistic approach to encourage healing in both body and mind.

Julie Ditrich: Mythic storytelling and its application to clinical hypnotherapy

The Hero’s Journey is a term used to describe a narrative pattern found in myths, legends and folklore across the world whereby a male or female hero must proceed through a series of steps to fulfill a quest.

This session examines mythic story structure, as well as archetypal events, motifs and characters in context of the therapeutic journey a clinical hypnotherapist undertakes with his or her client. Not only can these concepts be integrated into analogies and hypnotherapy scripts to facilitate psychological transformation, but they can also be used in advertising and promotion of your therapy practice.
