Working with inner parts is not new. Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961) already worked with ‘sub-personalities’, and this idea has constantly evolved: from the Gestalt therapy founded by Fritz and Laura Perls, the transactional analysis of Eric Berne and the ego-state therapy developed by Helen and John Watkins, up to the systemic family constellations according to Bert Hellinger.
When we are in hypnosis, we can define which parts are involved in the problem, get to know them and transform them, and the ‘superconsciousness’ – or our soul – takes on a mediating role. This communication with the soul gives us a deep insight into who we really are, and were the problem comes from. The transformation and/or integration of the parts involved leads to the desired solution of the problem.
