What’s a good hypnotheraputic strategy?

Answer by Barry Cooper:

I use a wide range of techniques, but perhaps the most versatile is “parts” work. There are several versions of this, but they all involve calling up parts of the unconscious mind and getting them to negotiate with each other. The unconscious mind, if it “really” exists at all, doesn’t “really” have parts – but it behaves as though it does. So, for example, a smoker may have a part of his UCM that wants to quit, and another part that wants to continue. Getting those parts to talk to each other can be very effective.
