Spiritual and Transpersonal Hypnotherapy recognise that the use of altered states of consciousness to access other realities has a long history. This history is swept under the carpet by those who insist that hypnotherapy must be a medical or psychological specialism and those who insist on “evidence-
However, looking at the human being from a holistic perspective, we are not just mind and body but also spirit. “Spirit” means different things to different people but general consensus points to a connection with something beyond the individual, present-
Spiritual hypnotherapy is thus the use of hypnosis to help access to a portion of this wide range of beyond-
Such experiences can be extremely significant and meaningful, and in some cases they can bring about some form of healing, though this cannot be guaranteed. But those experiences do not fit into a conventional medical model of hypnotherapy.
People will argue about the “truth” of inner experiences. There are no definite answers and each person – therapist or client – must make up his/her own mind about what these human experiences mean and how “real” they are. Some of them may be archetypal – that means, rooted in ancient patterns and myths that are part of universal human consciousness at a deep level and which can express themselves through personalised experiences such as a past life regression.
Some of these experiences may be metaphoric, in other words, healing stories that contain symbols of the present-
Increasingly, the interest in experiences suggesting reincarnation, life after death and contact with other-
Also, a new paradigm has emerged within the field of bereavement counselling – instead of encounters with deceased relatives being viewed as hallucinations (a view stemming from Freud) – some more enlightened bereavement experts have said that encounters with departed loved ones are natural and are not to be discouraged. Instead of telling people to withdraw emotional investment in the relationship with the departed, one modern view is that it is helpful and even healing to integrate their presence into our lives including the times when we see or feel their spirits and even talk to them.
Spiritual or transpersonal hypnotherapy can include:
Past life regression therapy
Future life progression
Meditative states and states of higher consciousness
Experiences of being between lives
Encounters with spirits and other beings
Releasing any unwanted spirit attachments or influences
Helping the client build his/her own model of spiritual realities
Helping the client to active self-
Retrieving lost soul energy
Contacting and integration of hidden parts of the self
Manipulating energy states through symbol, metaphor and ritual to block unwanted influences and create a sacred space in which healing can take place (otherwise known as “psychic protection”)
The student will learn many tools and techniques for spiritual enhancement of sessions and to work in a holistic, multi-
These subjects are often not covered extensively in hypnotherapy training courses, and sometimes offered in quick one-
No previous knowledge of these topics is necessary as the concepts that you will need will be explained in the textbooks as part of the relevant modules.
We recommend that every hypnotherapist has some acquaintance with these therapy techniques, because spontaneous past life regressions and spiritual experiences can occur in any session – whether you believe in them or not – and it can be extremely disconcerting or even traumatizing for the client if you cannot handle them or if you react in an insensitive and rejecting way. Eventually you will have a client with a spontaneous anomalous experience of the types covered in this course.
These techniques can be very powerful whether or not the therapist – or the client – believes that the experiences are “real” (whatever that means).
