Lifespan Integration (LI) Therapy is a method which works on a deep neural level altering embedded, habitual responses and problematic defense mechanisms. Through the process of LI, clients connect distressing feeling states and dysfunctional behavioral patterns with the originating and corresponding memories. After LI therapy, clients often recognize that they are no longer reacting inappropriately to current stressors in their lives, but rather they are responding with increasing balance between the rational and emotional minds.
LI appears to accelerate the healing process of many issues and is especially helpful in working through previously stuck places connected to past traumatic events and present life conditions. LI continues to be an effective tool for treating PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), which results from trauma, including: childhood abuse, rape, accidents, clergy/professional/narcissistic abuse and war experiences.
None of these therapeutic orientations include hypnosis, and to reiterate, other therapeutic approaches are used based on client needs and preferences.
