The workshop provides an introduction to three therapies that have been proven to be very effective for mental health, autism and addictions; Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST), Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) and Animal-assisted therapy (AAT).
When you combine holistic therapy with counselling, the outcomes can be transformational. The facilitator received these therapies which helped her to work through her own health issues, and has become a practitioner to help others do the same. The therapies help bring mind, body and spirit into alignment.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, profound, non-invasive hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system.
Rapid Transformational Therapy embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients: the use of trance, regression and hypnotic conditioning. However, RTT goes beyond diagnosing what works with clients to build a new therapeutic approach. Unlike many hypnotherapists, RTT does not rely solely on positive reinforcement. Too often this is the sole focus for hypnotherapists.
While using correct, up-to-date, and relevant language when talking to yourself is certainly a part of any transformation, it serves as more of a reinforcement of breakthroughs rather than the catalyst of them. RTT therapists are able to reach a breakthrough via hypnosis that would not be possible if they were simply trying to reach their subconscious mind via altered language and self-talk. The RTT therapist is equipped with an array of techniques and tools that are crucial, not just in teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and fixing whatever blockages may be there. Central to that is the ability to transform many clients in a single session.
Animal-assisted therapy is a type of therapy that involves animals as a form of treatment. The goal of AAT is to improve a patient's social, emotional, or cognitive functioning. Advocates state that animals can be useful for educational and motivational effectiveness for participants.
