Modalities Of Counseling And Psychotherapy

Madison Psychotherapy

I use these counseling modalities in talk therapy and in psychotherapy in hypnosis.

Transactional Analysis
Social transactions of the client are assessed to determine the dominant operating ego state (adult-like, parent-like, or child-like) as a basis for understanding their experience in their world. In transactional analysis, the client learns to identify their ego state, and to shift it, as a way to solve emotional problems and to optimize their experiences. This can lead to self-mastery and a more peaceful interface with life.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
The client and therapist work together in this method of psychotherapy to discover unhealthy belief patterns, resulting emotions and their role in self-sabotaging behaviors. Those beliefs are tested and the client and therapist work together to develop constructive patterns of thinking that will produce healthier behaviors and beliefs.

You can choose talk therapy, above, or therapy in the state of hypnosis, whichever feels right for you.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state that we all enter at various times. In hypnosis one’s attention is focused in one area, closing out other stimulation. It is similar to daydreaming or being so completely engrossed in a book or TV program that you may ignore someone speaking in the same room. Here is another example. Just before falling asleep every night, we pass through a phase that is very similar to hypnosis, called the alpha state.

We are able to give ourselves suggestions while we are in the alpha state. For example, you may have once wanted to get up at a different time than usual. You may have reminded yourself just before falling asleep to wake up early and then found you had awakened at that early time. In that situation, you gave yourself the post hypnotic suggestion to wake up early and this function is similar to how hypnosis works. Hypnosis is a state of consciousness. It can be measured using an EEG, an instrument that reads brain wave activity.
