|Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
CBT is the combination of two therapies. Cognitive, which teaches you or shows you how certain “thinking
patterns” are causing your symptoms and Behavior, which weakens the “mind pattern connections”
between trouble-some situations and your habitual reactions to them.
Altering ways of thinking — a person's thoughts, beliefs, ideas, attitudes, assumptions, mental imagery,
and ways of directing his or her attention for the better. This is the “cognitive” aspect of CBT. Helping a
person greet the challenges and opportunities in his or her life with a clear and calm mind and then taking
actions that are likely to have desirable results. This is the “behavioral” aspect of CBT.
Example: We use CBT when we learn about Tension Induced Pain Disorders. We discover how our unique
personalities interact with stressful life situations and how this interaction can be causing inner tension
resulting in pain. We then alter, or interrupt certain mind patterns that can be causing tension and then
redirect our attention to produce more desirable healing results.
Hypnosis is an altered, heightened state of awareness during which our subconscious mind is more
open and receptive to suggestions that are given. In one sense hypnosis is the same practice as Guided
Imagery, however, hypnosis will more frequently include the use of verbal suggestions. These specific
suggestions are given to your subconscious in this heightened state of awareness which is now more
receptive and likely to be acted upon in a positive way. Just as in Guided Imagery, the ideal conditions
for an effective hypnosis practice are: Being in a relaxed and focused altered state where you can be
open and undisturbed in an environment that allows for a unforced and non-controlling state.
Hypnosis is well documented to help with; Weight Loss, Stop Smoking, Increasing Confidence, Achieving
Peak Performance, Eliminating Fears, Reducing Stress & Anxiety, Immune System Disorders and Pain
Example: in a relaxed and heightened state of alertness…”as you go deeper you are realizing that you are
becoming more open and accepting of yourself and your emotions now. Whenever you feel a pain
sensation in your body you automatically shift your attention to your inner self. You automatically ask
yourself an inner question such as “what am I feeling right now”. Everyday you express gratitude for the
signals that your physical body gives you.” This is an exert from a 12 minute hypnosis exercise.
Guided Imagery is a practice of purposefully directing your imagination to help your mental being,
emotional being and your physical body heal or perform well. This technique is used to relieve stress,
explore psychological conflicts, manage pain and achieve peak performance. It is sometimes described
as an intended or purposeful daydream in which many of your sensory images are used: sights, sounds,
tastes, smells and feeling. The best conditions for practicing Guided Imagery exercises are: Being in a
relaxed, focused, altered state where you allow a permissive, unforced atmosphere to preside.
Many studies over the past years show that imagery can heighten your immune system, lower fatigue,
increase energy, alleviate depression, lower blood pressure, increase relaxation and reduce the
perception of pain. What these and other studies have shown us is that our mind and body are not
separate. The energy of images, thoughts and emotions are simultaneously accompanied by changes
in the biochemistry of our bodies.
Example: in a relaxed and heightened state…“ asking your body to show you what it’s feeling and opening
a space for your body to answer…asking your emotions to show themselves to you...being open and
curious to sense where they may be…and letting the wisdom of the body show them to you…and with
another deep, relaxing breath ready to take a closer look at these feelings” This is an exert from a 15
minute imagery exercise.
