Narrative Hypnotherapeutic Technique: The LRRH Reconditioning Technique


The LRRH Reconditioning Technique(Clinical Psychologist in Mondeor) serves to outline, discover and reprocess the unconscious roots of an individual or ‘program’ that defines how the individual perceives and experiences the outer reality. The unique technique helps to access, identify and reprocess the unconscious addictive, abusive and sabotage programs or belief systems and repetitive emotional patterns which lead to betrayal, disappointment and the constant challenges and conflicts which surface in daily life. These belief systems and patterns lead to self-destruct tendencies where anger becomes disruptive and volatile.


The Logic Of The Unconscious Mind Is Similar To That Of
A Child

The technique includes a projective drawing and story telling technique of the well-known children’s story Little Red Riding Hood.’  Each person will tell a different story which will correspondingly indicate how they are managing and perceiving their reality, i.e. their ‘program’. By addressing and re-processing the story, the corresponding life changes result.


The balance of the Mother, Father and Child within may emerge, where the inner child may achieve new heights through play, fun and ecstasy

The technique has profound and lasting results, which occur in a relatively short period of time, depending on each person’s rate of processing and integration. The process is preventative as well as curative.


The LRRH Reconditioning Technique ®

The therapy process addresses the dynamics of the unconscious mind as opposed to dealing with the conscious, intellectual, rational aspects of the individual. It is similar to cutting off the roots of a weed as opposed to symptomatically cutting off the flowers.

By telling a children’s story while in a slight trance, or using EMDR, each person will tell a different story. The story of LRRH holds the dynamics of the unconscious mind and illustrates the interplay of the balance of the male and female, truth vs illusion as well as the journey of the inner child.

By reprocessing the story of each individual, the corresponding reality will change accordingly. The results are profound in that many addictive cycles and sabotaging programs may finally be cleared and many answers to questions and psychological dilemmas are provided.
