Talk to the parts

Parts Therapy Techniques Tools Methods

Parts therapy uses the metaphor that our mind is composed of separate and sometimes conflicting parts. Each part represents a different aspect of your personality. People often say "part of me wants to stop, but part of me wants to do it". This idea will be very familiar to smokers and people who need to lose weight.

Parts therapy consists of identifying the various parts of your mind and then getting them to interact with each other. The idea of talking to parts might seem silly in normal life, but in trance your mind will readily accept that there are different parts with different needs. Your mind may in fact prefer to believe that there are 'bad' parts causing your bad behavior.

In some therapies encourage the client to find and name various parts. These are identified as 'The controller' or 'the Planner' or 'the Librarian', 'the Protector', etc.,  and each given a role and a personality. This enables change to be done as a sort of drama with different parts playing out their allocated roles.

Parts Therapy Metaphors

A common metaphor uses parts being called up from an audience on to a stage. Some parts therapy identifies one part as a manager to control of the other parts. Other forms of parts therapy attempt to talk directly to each part and reason with it. Some medical aimed therapies talk directly to each organ in your body as if it was separate living part with knowledge and feelings. There are many variations.

A lot of New Age mystic therapy is actually Parts Therapy. The Universal Consciousness or Higher Power is given a role in your life with the power to make changes.
