For the past decade, clinical psychotherapist Beth Herman has provided individual counseling for adults, adolescents and children with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. Now, Herman is excited to add a more person-centered, holistic modality called Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy to her practice offerings.
Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy combines specialized hypnotherapy techniques that integrate Inner Child Work, CBT and Gestalt methods of therapy, resulting in healing for both client and practitioner after each session. “In this modality there is an energy release,” explains Herman. “From a cognitive perspective, there is a conclusion that we draw about ourselves based on core experiences, and they can be misguided. The goal in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy is to heal that wound by correcting the mistaken thought or concept and to affirm a new behavior.”
Inspired by a growing demand in her field for more holistic care options, Herman says her commitment to continuous learning was affirmed by her own personal experience with hypnotherapy. “Coming from an academic clinical background, I was somewhat skeptical initially. After completion of my initial training, I was so blown away I decided to pursue the Advanced Program. This work relieves the clinical distance and lets me get closer to my clients.” Herman is currently training in a two-year advanced clinical internship for hypnosis through The Wellness Institute.
Herman offers free, initial consultations and sliding scale pricing at her Doylestown office.
