Thoughts from my couch

One of many interesting techniques being taught in NLP is ‘Parts Integration’. There is not a one client who have not benefitted from this beautiful technique.

In short the theory behind it is that a person develop different ‘unconscious parts’ whenever trauma is experienced, especially at a young age to help the child cope and ‘survive’ in the traumatic context. Trauma can be any form of pain, emotional or physical which the child find difficult to handle. As adults we often experience it as conflicts within us, one part wants to do this and another part that. Often people will also use their hands to signal for the different parts because on a neurological level it is different and often opposing parts of the neurology. Also changes in voice tone is usually a indicator of the different conflicting parts.

A young woman I was working with who came from a family of a lot of alcohol abuse as a child developed at an early age a very strong part which helped her cope through all of this. We called her the ‘the strong one’. This part was so overwhelming that it stopped her from having any serious relationship because any form of disappointment with her partner – no matter how small – would cause her to just react with anger and she would immediate stop the relationship. Talking to this part  we realised that it only wanted her to be protected from any present hurt which resembled her dad’s alcohol abuse as a child. The other part was a soft and very loving part, full of patience and forgiveness but this part was completely suppressed and dominated by ‘the strong one’.

Before we integrated the two parts we first healed the root causes which created ‘the strong one’. After this was completed – which was a very moving experience – we got a yes from this part that it was willing to slowly look and get to know the other ‘softer and loving’ part. Although the two parts didn’t become one, the younger and softer girl part grew up into a young woman and the strong one become younger and relaxed and they hold each other’s hands at the end of the session. She was satisfied with this as a outcome and calibrating to her relaxed voice and body she was complete.
In the next ‘Thoughts from my couch’ I will go a bit deeper into parts therapy and specifically where parts are so split off that it becomes what is called in psychology a multiple personality disorder or DID (dissociative identity disorder) and also where the part is  not from the person but from a entity or spirit which is only using the person’s body as a host. Although how to deal with this is not taught on the Practitioners courses but only on the advance courses, it is worth knowing about it.

Next Upcoming courses: 6-13 November Hout Bay.
                                               19-26 February, Linden, Johannesburg.
