Regression Therapy, For who and what?
Regression therapy may help where other therapies fail, but is doesn’t help everybody and not with all problems.
It doesn’t resolve mental handicaps, it often does not work with people who lean towards autism, who are seriously compulsive or obsessive or truly paranoid. It doesn’t help people who gain by being labeled patients. It is difficult with the addicted, the unemotional and those hardly aware of their own body.
But it may work wonders with inexplicable fears, with depression without a clear cause, with unexplainable guilt or shame, with psychosomatic problems and relationship problems. It may even work wonders with multiple personality disorder, with people hearing voices or suffering from visual hallucinations. It often works wonders with suicidal people.
For chronic problems like migraines and insomnia the conclusion is not clear yet. Successes and failures seem to even each other out.
Even when it doesn’t work, regression therapy has a saving grace: it is relatively short. One or two sessions are enough to find out if this is going to work or not. For most people it works very well indeed.
Results of regression therapy
Results of regression therapy, like most other forms of psychotherapy, can be distinguished in:
- Mental results: clarity, mindfulness, self-knowledge, understanding people, liberation of limiting beliefs.
- Emotional results: inner calm, self-acceptance and self-confidence, restored empathy and positive emotions and expression of emotions.
- Somatic results: disappearing of psychosomatic complaints like low energy, tensions, hypersensitivities and symptoms without medical explanation.
