WHAT IS P.S.H. THERAPY?

The P.S.H. (Private Subconscious-mind Healing) model of therapy utilises subconscious mind principles and is designed specifically to help clients resolve subconscious mind problems. P.S.H. helps clients resolve the original subconscious cause of a presenting problem, thereby eliminating it permanently rather than merely helping the person cope with the symptoms.

The difference between P.S.H. and other approaches is that it is not an invasive method which calls upon clients to relive traumatic experiences, nor does the therapist need to delve into a client’s history. Rather it is done privately, gently and quickly within the client’s inner mind.

What is the Subconscious Mind?

Also known as the “unconscious”, “inner”, “feeling” or “body” mind, this part of us holds the life-record of our human experiences and learnings, and is the creative, intuitive, and emotional part of our mind. The subconscious mind is responsible for our habitual actions, reactions and feelings, both positive and negative.

The conscious mind analyses and takes history.

The subconscious mind heals.

When a person has feelings, behaviours or responses to external stress that they would like to change but can’t through conscious effort and willpower. It is often an indicator of underlying conflicts that have been initiated or exacerbated by the subconscious mind.

Past clients have reported significant positive changes both singly and in combination of the following symptoms:

  • Behavioural Compulsive and/or addictive behaviour (eg. Overeating, Spending, Smoking), Stuttering, Aggression, Nail biting and others.
  • Mental Stress, Memory & Concentration problems, Uncomfortable dreams/nightmares, Uncontrolled Fears and Phobias, Depression & Postnatal depression, performance Blocks (sexual, Sport, Study etc), Creative Blocks, Insomnia and others.
  • Emotional Low Self esteem, Lack of Confidence, Shyness, Jealousy, Guilt, Anger, Inappropriate grief period, and others often manifesting in relationship problems.
  • Physical (Where there is no underlying organic cause or a doctor cannot find a cause): Chronic Pain, Migraines, Eczema and other skin disorders, Muscle Tension, Ulcers, Irritable Bowel syndrome, Fatigue, and other stress related conditions often labelled as “psychosomatic”

Committment to a process:
How many sessions will I need?

P.S.H. helps by guiding the client’s awareness into that part of the subconscious feeling mind where real change can take place. It requires a dedicated team effort, with the client accepting responsibility for his/her own recovery through cooperation and commitment to a process.

The cause is a feeling not a fact.

Telling the story only comes after the therapy is completed.

How does it feel?

Each client’s experience is an individual and subjective one, but there is some common ground. The client is always in control, he/she will usually experience some degree of mental or physical relaxation similar to day-dreaming or meditation, and will hear what the therapist is saying. The client does not talk nor reveal information when they are in this relaxed state.

At each session you will be sitting comfortably in a chair. Your eyes will be closed and you will simply listen comfortably. If you relax deeply enough, you may not even hear some of the words. Either way, there is nothing at all that you have to do or say. In fact..

THE LESS YOU DO,

THE MORE THAT HAPPENS.

The deep-process part of the session can be likened to a guided meditation.

Each individual responds differently to a therapeutic situation, so it is impossible to accurately predict exactly how many sessions a particular person will need. A typical P.S.H. process takes three to four sessions in total, once per week.

It’s important to emphasise that P.S.H. is the start and not the finish of an internal process, and many clients will experience inner change well after the face-to-face sessions are completed. This integration process will vary from person to person. For some it can be quick and for others it can be more subtle and gradual, so it is important to be patient.

There is no conscious involvement in the healing process.

You don’t MAKE anything happen, you LET it happen.

Is P.S.H. Therapy Hypnosis?

P.S.H. is not a form of hypnosis. It is a model of therapy that utilises a deep state of mind to access and allow the subconscious to do it’s work. It’s best described as a meditative therapy.
