Gestalt therapy and hypnosis
Hypnosis by inducing a state of deep relaxation and heightened suggestibility when used in conjunction with Gestalt therapy, hypnosis can help clients to access deeper levels of awareness and facilitate healing at a more profound level.
One of the key principles of Gestalt therapy is the concept of the “unfinished business.” This refers to unresolved emotional issues that are lingering from the past and continue to affect the present.
Hypnosis can be a powerful tool for uncovering these underlying issues and helping clients to process them in a safe and supportive environment.
Another way in which hypnosis can be used in Gestalt therapy is to facilitate the integration of conflicting parts of the self.
For example, a client may have a part of themselves that wants to change, but another part that is resistant to change.
Through hypnosis, the therapist can help the client to access and communicate with these different parts, with the goal of promoting greater self-awareness and self-direction.
