In his book "Dream Psycles - A New Awakening in Hypnosis," Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Carl Allen Schoner discusses one of the most controversial applications of hynotherapy.

- Analytical hypnotherapy was advanced by the work of Eric Berne (1910-1970), a psychoanalyst who broke from the ranks of Freudian psychotherapy to found Transpersonal Psychology. Berne recognized the important impact that early perception and the recognition of significant others, particularly parents, play in our psychological and social development. He described three dynamic ego states that interact with each other to form a tangible subconscious mind. Berne referred to these observable ego states as the Child, the Parent, and the Adult.

According to Berne, up to 65% of the subconscious mind is comprised of the Child ego state, which, like Freud's "id," is the first subconscious state to develop, emerging at birth (within the womb, really), and continuing in development until that point in time when the child first truly recognizes a real-life parent. Like Freud's "id," the Child ego state is very demanding and self oriented, but it is also very frightened and frail.

The Parent ego state begins to develop as soon as the child recognizes a real-life parent. The Parent represents and embodies all the same attitudes, attributes and restrictions as the real parent. According to Berne, the purpose of the Parent ego state is to protect the Child ego state against abandonment by the real parents. It does this by repressing emotional expressions that the Parent finds unacceptable in the Child ego state.

The Adult ego state develops last, but it emerges rapidly, and is usually fully developed by the time the child is 9 months old. The Adult ego state is semi-rational, and is able to examine perceptions held by both the Child and Parent ego states. The success of all modern psychotherapies is dependent upon the presence of a mature, intact Adult ego. This is particularly true in analytical hypnotherapy.

In analytical hypnotherapy, self-sabotage is the result of the Parent ego state forcing a repression of the Child's emotions, and 95% of all personal adjustment problems are a manifestation of this conflict between the Parent and Child ego states. To resolve these conflicts, a hypnotherapist will guide the client back to the sensitizing and critical events that form the core of this conflict. At this point of regression, process work is used in which the subject's Adult ego is asked to step forward and mediate the release of this repression by the Parent. This is accomplished by calling on the Adult ego's rational ability to understand that the repression was appropriate for it's time, but that time, however, is now past. The Adult is used to convince the Parent that it is now okay to stop repressing these expressions, because there is no rational reason to continue doing so.

During Analytical sessions, the Child, Parent, and Adult ego states are asked to communicate with the hypnotherapist through a signaling process know as "ideomotor sensing." Once the client is in a relaxed, deep state of hypnosis, he or she is asked to move a finger, and this finger will then be used to signal a "yes" response to direct questions. The client then makes this hand signal in response to specific questions, although this is not always the case. The client may also respond verbally to questions or even through some other signal, but most people seem to respond best using ideomotor sensing.

All analytical hypnotherapy is essentially regressive by nature. The therapist acts as an auxiliary Adult ego state, and strives to arrive at a deductive resolution to the conflict that is acceptable to both the Parent and Adult ego states. Once an acceptable resolution is found, the Parent ego state will spontaneously abandon its repressive psycle, and the client will discover a new sense well being and inner peace.

The goal of all forms of hypnotherapy is to enlighten us to our own subconscious psycles, and to decide on a conscious level what thoughts, feelings, patterns, and emotions should be stored in our subconscious mind. Once you realize that this is possible, you enjoy a sudden and permanent surge of empowerment. You suddenly realize, with a brilliant flash of awareness, that anything is possible. You no longer see yourself as a victim of circumstance; your life is no longer governed by "fate"; and you no longer think that those material things, which you have wanted for so long, are hopelessly out of your reach. You suddenly know how to achieve everything you want to achieve in life.

You can use this new power to quit smoking, to lose weight, to improve your self confidence, to enhance creativity, to elevate self-esteem, to improve your income or start a new business, to win new friends and relationships, to eliminate phobias, to get better grades, to reduce and control stress, to radically improve your memory, to control chronic pain, to supercharge yourself with motivation, and to eliminate negative thinking. In short, you can use this technology in virtually every aspect of your life, and this power will change your life forever.

The responsibility for shaping your future is yours, and yours alone. Don't look to your parents to do it for you. Doctors can't do it for you either. Don't expect your boss to call you into his or her office and say "Joe, today I'm going to make huge improvements in the quality of your life!" It just doesn't work that way. You, and you alone must take responsibility for shaping your own future. The choice really is up to you. Make it a habit now to embrace this feeling of power and responsibility for your own advancement in life. Today is the day to take control of the ultimate direction of your life. Learning how to visualize your own dream psycles, and learning how to effectively manage them, can help you achieve tremendous goals in life. Hypnosis is the key, and hypnosis can set you free.

Very well explained!

I had not know this number before - "95% of all personal adjustment problems are a manifestation of this conflict between the Parent and Child ego states." but, I sure believe it.

Thanks for an informative post. If you have read 'Games People Play' it all makes even more sense.
This is one type of analytical therapy but a relatively new one I think (?) and not the only method.
