Ego State (Parts) Therapy
What is Ego State Therapy?
Ego state therapy, often known as ‘parts therapy’, is a brief, strategic, psychodynamic approach that can be applied to a range of behavioural and cognitive issues; aiming to resolve conflicts within the individual.
Within ego state therapy, there is a concept that there are segments, parts, roles or facets (ego states) within an individual’s personality which develop as an adaptation to life circumstances. These ‘parts’ can be thought of as organised and cohesive systems of behaviour and experience with a common principle and with identification of each state that is brought forward. Sometimes these ego states, whilst helpful for a while, are no longer beneficial in their present condition.
What is it used for?
Ego state therapy offers the hypnotherapist the opportunity to engage hypnotherapy together with a range of behavioural, cognitive, analytic and humanistic approaches, to enhance communication between ego states, with the aim to achieve normal, healthy ego states, that are openly recognised, not in conflict, nor maladaptive.
It can be used for various different conditions, including (but not limited to): smoking; weight management; disordered eating; addictions; stress; anxiety; sexual dysfunction; phobias; pain management; sports performance; study and exams; bruxism; headaches; and much more…
