Regression Therapy

Regression therapy is an approach to treatment that focuses on resolving significant past events believed to be interfering with a person’s present mental and emotional wellness. Regression therapy focuses on areas of conflict and other potentially negative aspects in a person’s life with a goal of isolating the causes of negative emotions and determining their cause in order to better address them. People seeking treatment for phobias, depression, intimacy issues, and a range of other concerns can see improvement in their state of mind by revisiting and reliving the early experiences that influenced the development of these issues. Regression therapy has been used successfully with individuals of varying ages and backgrounds. One area in which some consider regression therapy to be particularly useful is in the treatment of significant traumas. Proponents of regression therapy believe a traumatic event can often have a continued impact on a person’s ability to express emotion and interact with other people, though the individual may not readily recall the details of the trauma. 
Regression therapy can be of benefit because it can help a person return back to a trauma in order to understand the impact the trauma may be having on their behaviors and choices. Proponents of the approach believe regression can be highly effective when individuals experience: fears or phobias that have no recognized cause; intimacy issues; general relationship issues; feelings of guilt and shame that seem to have no explanation.
