This type of therapy combines three different types of approaches: Katathym Imaginative Psychotherapy (KIP), Ego-State therapy (EST), and the Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapy (NLP)
There are several interpretations of what we can call hypnosis, using integrative hypnotherapy techniques, the therapist helps the client to reach a natural altered state of awareness. All of us have experienced this state. For example, think about when you rode your bicycle and did not remember parts of the journey. It can be defined as an experience of deep relaxation. This is a very natural process in which you are in control. It is not about being made to do things. This process aims to empower you to facilitate by combining these three approaches.
For example, when using the technique of KIP: the therapist asks the client to imagine pictures. The content of the client’s unconscious will be shown in these pictures. Reflecting on it, these symbolic pictures can help the client reach further to understand better the source of current problems. The therapist facilitates this process of understanding. When using NLP techniques, the client can explore how language influences brain behavior and how it enables them to recode how the brain responds to stimuli and manifest new and improved behaviors. This way, the clients become more aware and in charge of their thoughts and feelings.
