Depth Hypnosis is a counseling model developed by Isa Gucciardi, PhD. It pulls from Shamanism, Buddhism, Energy Medicine, and Transpersonal Psychology. The client does not need experience, knowledge, or belief in any of these areas to receive the benefits of Depth Hypnosis. In a Depth Hypnosis session, we discuss issues you’d like to work on and what affect they are having on your life. We use this information to go into an altered state and work on the subconscious level. You can think of this like a deep meditative state where you are fully conscious and aware, but the busy working mind is taking a break.
Working on the subconscious level allows us to see where patterns emerged from and how to undo them, as well as look at past trauma and heal it. We can do this without talking at great length about the trauma and patterns which can result in a feeling of going around and around. Talk therapy has many benefits and should not be discounted. Depth Hypnosis, however, cuts to the chase and gets to healing much quicker. The committed client can expect to see a shift in 3-5 sessions. Many clients come every week. Others come every few weeks, while others book appointments when they feel the need. As with everything in life, you get out what you put in.
In session, practitioner and client work in team. The practitioner is not doing the work or healing for the client, but rather assisting the client as they learn to be their own healer. Depth Hypnosis empowers the client and reminds us that we all have the necessary tools within us.
Depth Hypnosis encourages radical self-responsibility and engages clients in a process of self-empowerment through self-knowledge. As clients navigate their psyches through hypnosis, insight inquiry, regression, dream work, meditation, or the shamanic journey, the Depth Hypnosis Practitioner helps them interpret subconscious material. By doing so, the client and Practitioner are able to gain a deeper understanding of the obstacles that are creating disharmony in the client’s life.
Depth Hypnosis works on all levels – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It complements well with other practices and beliefs. Depth Hypnosis works for all areas and issues we are dealing with. From habits to relationship patterns to health issues and addictions to abuse and trauma. This practice allows for the client to come back into wholeness without living from one’s wounding.
