The Process Healing Method (PHM) is a little known technique that is best defined as a waking state hypnotic treatment method based on a memory model. PHM is a treatment intervention for a wide variety of mental health issues.

PHM works from a memory model to allow systematic treatment of pain, negative beliefs, difficult memories, and addictions without the client re-experiencing traumatic events. With some clients, I use PHM almost exclusively and with others it is used in combination with other treatment approaches.

This approach does not require a person to consciously know all the pieces of information related to their symptoms in order to treat the issue. The client simply needs to be clear about wanting the issue treated. Because the subconscious mind has access to conscious and unconscious information, we’ll be able to problem solve healthy solutions with a wealth of information.
