For the first time clients, a regressive hypnosis session is composed of three sections and takes approximately 2 hours.
In the first section, I explain in detail how the process works and we address any questions the client might have. It is often that people do not know what to expect, so I describe the mechanisms behind hypnosis and the cerebral, physiological and psychological changes associated to it. There are some myths connected to hypnosis, and I love to build dismantle them. Then I describe the processes behind regressions, how the client might experience them, and some techniques I might use during the session.
Even if some clients are familiar with this information, it is always important to make sure we have a common ground and there are no differences in understanding. Many times, it is useful to clarify the differences between stage hypnosis (what people see on TV) and therapeutic hypnosis. I always welcome questions and clarifications needed from the clients. This part of the session will usually take around 15 minutes.
In the second section of the meeting we discuss the client’s objectives in detail. It helps me understand more about the challenges s/he is facing, her life context and biography, as well as what does s/he wants to obtain as a result of the therapy. Before the session I ask the client to complete a questionnaire containing several routine questions, which helps me to prepare in advance, so often we touch on the information included in the questionnaire, especially if more clarification is needed. This part of the session usually takes around 15-20 minutes. All the information and data are confidential.
The third section is the regression itself. We can enter a regression either through a guided meditation, or via other more rapid techniques which use the client’s emotions, thoughts or bodily sensations. Regardless if we access memories from the current life or from other timelines, we try to explore them in detail, in order to understand what the person experienced during those moments. I don’t focus on the” historical” details (age, period or geographical area of the event), but on the feelings, thoughts and sensations which imprinted the client’s psyche.
Surely the exploration is an important element, but the process needs to continue with the therapeutic processing component, essential for the client’s desired objectives. This is the key difference between a therapeutic regression and a simple” journey” into the past. The therapeutic approach assumes the application of several strategies for the acceptance, integration or transformation of those aspects which are hindering the client.
Many people ask me how a regression is ”felt”, if they are going to see images, if they are going to fell asleep or, if at the end of the session are going to remember what happened. It is not a Cinemax ” full HD” type of experience. There are very few persons who can close their eyes and ”see” things. The vast majority of clients connect with the information in various other ways, by feeling bodily sensations, emotions, or by just knowing that a certain information is there. There are also persons who see images, but they are very few.
The sessions can work very well therapeutically, even if the person does not visualise anything, but is well connected to their emotions or bodily sensations. The client does not feel asleep during a session, and remembers everything, being fully counscious of what is happening.
What can be very helpful during this process is if the regression’s beneficiary allows himself or herself to get into the game, to communicate what s/he is feeling, even if s/he considers it is not so important, or it is made up. Oftenly the ”made-up ” things are not really random fabrications, but products of the subconscious mind and, the more we allow ourselves to express them, the more they achive a meaning and a shape.
The regression session is reaching towards its end in the same time with the emergence from the hypnosis state. I offer support to the client to ”readjust” to the present moment, and we have a short discussion regarding his/her experience during the session. We also set up the next steps, offering some recommendations regarding the way in which the client can contribute to the effects of the regression, during the following days.
Many times, the experiences are pretty intense, therefore the scheduling of the next session is done at a distance of 10 days – 2 weeks, in order to allow plenty of time for the energetical rebalancing.
According to the complexity of the issues which are addressed, more sessions might be needed
The price of a regression meeting is 100 EUR.
