My approach to disease, trauma, and any uncomfortable emotion or symptom is not just to get rid of it. Eliminating the symptom and discomforts does not resolve them. Only by addressing our habits, history (including adverse childhood experiences (ACE), unresolved emotions, and limiting beliefs; and then rewriting the stories about who we think we are, do we heal (mentally, physically, and spiritually).
This alternative therapy does not try to not try “fix” the apparent problem (or 20 problems) in the client’s life. But to discover the theme present and common to this and many other issues in their life history. The goal is then to develop that theme being expressed at the highest neurological level. – excerpt from Medical Hypnotherapy Training
Most of my clients who come looking for an alternative therapy here in Santa Cruz or online do not come thinking that, dealing with their IBS, arthritis, or cancer will mean working on anxiety, chronic stress, relationship conflicts, and boundaries, but, when they begin the work, they realize just how much their mindsets, emotions, and trauma is affecting their bodies.
How Do I Address Disease and Emotions?
(1) discover what is behind the body’s responses
(2) transforming the underlying problem
(3) build robust coping and relational skills and cultivating strengths in order to face future issues and problems more effectively.
