What is Kinetic shift?
Kinetic shift is rapid, dynamic and intense and not in itself the classic approach to hypnotherapy. It is active, dynamic, intuitive and energising.
It is a 7 stage process, that is predominantly done with your eyes open and It uses client participation to work directly with the unconscious mind. It uses your feelings and emotions (state) to make changes.
It works with the deeper part of the mind, not with the cognitive part. Imagine in your body all that past hurt, past pain and unhelpful emotions, that are stored there, now imagine how it would feel if that can be pulled out from your body and replaced with positive, happy and joyous feelings. That is kinetic shift.
What happens during a session?
During the session I am looking at the way you do your thinking, not what it is you’re thinking. You will be asked to think briefly about the problem and how it makes you feel. For some they cannot explain in words how it is they feel, it might feel like the words are stuck. Which is why this method works content free.
I will then ask you to give me a number on how much of a problem that “thing” is. You will be asked a series of questions, of which there are no right and no wrong answers. We will then work to replace that old feeling with a happier positive feeling. To get past the “monkey mind”.
The process uses confusion. The conscious mind can often get in the way, so creating confusion stops it from paying attention and allows me the opportunity, in that space, to get directly to that “monkey mind”. I am not only listening to what you say, but I am also looking at every movement you make, using my intuition to help guide me where to go next. Your body language can tell so much about how you feel at that moment.
Once the changes have been made, those horrible old feelings, the flashbacks and painful memories have gone, we replace those old memories and feelings with ones of moments where you can remember what it felt like to be happy, and confident, times when you felt love and joy.
When you experience this powerful technique you will know, you will feel a difference, you will know that something has changed, you will feel the release and you will feel different. Many people report after just one session experiencing this method, which is often included in many sessions depending on what comes up, they feel a significant difference. You will feel yourself changing.
This process helps resolve anxiety, fears, phobias, anxiety, trauma as well as PTSD and so much more.
How Kinetic Shift came about
This technique was created by Karl Smith, who after his own experience with trauma and PTSD, found that hypnotherapy helped, but wanted an alternative to traditional hypnotherapy. He took the best of the hypnotic methods he had learnt in his training and then spent 2 years field testing it with military and emergency services. It uses techniques and insights that have been tried and tested, including eye movement techniques, NLP and hypnotherapy.
