What is Transpersonal Clinical Hypnotherapy
You might be wondering what is better about this type of hypnosis or what exactly is hypnosis. Read on.
According to Dr. Allen S Chips, founder of the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy, hypnosis is a state of relaxation and/or a level of concentration that the average individual reaches daily.
Self hypnosis is accomplished most often when one is “absorbed” in a TV program, experiencing repetition (highway driving), or daydreaming. “Hypnotherapy” is a form of guided relaxation using concentration where the ideas expressed (suggestions) by the therapist are generally experienced more clearly, which in turn creates a new awareness.
Depending on one’s motivations, there may be a shift in attitude about specific subject matters (habits and stresses). The only requirement for getting therapeutic results is that the person has a conscious desire to change, or in other words, is in agreement with the suggestions.
Transpersonal Hypnosis is an orientation toward hypnotherapy which takes the concept of holism to the next logical step. Where holism takes body, mind, and spirit into consideration, transpersonalism goes beyond the individual to consider the deep connections between human beings and our capacity to transcend the limitations of a three-dimensional consciousness.
It was described by Dr. Allen Chips as “a Crossing of the Body, Mind & Spirit.” It incorporates, not only the body and mind as in clinical hypnosis, but the spirit as well.
The sessions are extremely client based, personalized for the client to address any aspect of their life and the effective relationship between the mind, body and spirit. There is no religious orientation suggested, but instead an unfoldment that brings those insights and experiences that lead to the client’s highest good- physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually.
