Like the vision for all forms of Ontogonic Therapy, the goals for the practitioner of Therapeutic Hypnosis include full acquisition of  attitudes, skills and proficiencies outlined below.

  • To follow the principles of Ontogonic Psychotherapy: Activate, Allow, Observe and Assimilate;
  • To create a state of awareness that allows the experience of  ‘True Nature’  for both the therapist and the patient;
  • To embrace the material from ‘True Nature’ so that instant assimilation occurs;
  • To maintain a perspective of Love, Freedom, Grace, and Pleasure as the Goals of Therapy;
  • To offer consistent diagnosis, based always in the here and now;
  • To work directly and intuitively with the total flow of the moment…and to not get lost in the parts;
  • To hold an intention of attaining the ultimate goal which is to break “characterology” and sustain the new freedom.
