Ego State Therapy

Ego states are parts of our personality and may have either a positive or negative effect on our day-to-day living.

By our late teens, we have an array of ego states that control our life. These ego states are generally formed during childhood and can affect us in a positive or negative way.

Negative ‘States’ usually come into being as the result of earlier trauma, frustration, pain, misunderstanding, abuse or anger. When we become threatened, stressed, angry or confronted, we react rather than respond and a negative State comes forward. This can result in totally inappropriate behaviour.

If you are experiencing an internal conflict, such as “a part of me wants to get rid of this weight while another part wants to keep on eating!” The personality part desiring to reduce is in conflict with another part wanting to overeat.

This might be the result of one or more of several common causes: overwork, unresolved personal or family problems, past programming, unresolved past experience, secondary gain (such as protection from opposite sex), authority imprint, self-punishment, etc.

So, you can see how many of these ego states could prevent us from ‘growing’ and stop us living our lives fully and successfully as we would like.

Ego state therapy goes to the source of the problem and deals with the initiating trauma or incident at a sub-conscious level.

Although negative ego states cannot be eliminated, THEY CAN BE CHANGED.  Therefore with Hypnosis and Ego State Therapy, it can be possible to remove blockages that hold us back and we can change many areas of our lives.
