Debbie Williams, hypnotherapist, Challenges Beliefs of Patients

YouTube: False memory how to move on

Published on Mar 6, 2013

“False memory from the past may have been inadvertently installed by a therapist.
Hear Birmingham based hypnotherapist and NLP trainer Debbie Williams talk about false memory syndrome and what you can do to change things for the better.”

Debbie Williams of Birmingham, England challenges beliefs of her clients and asks for proof that their memory is accurate. Williams is not discounting what clients tell her, rather, she explores decade old memories that form beliefs for alternate explanations.

We often perceive events in our lives that may be, in part, inaccurate – and in part, accurate. Creating a story around a scant perception, memory fragment, or dream analysis can easily lead us down the wrong path to truth.

Williams uses client stories to illustrate how beliefs can be partially correct owing to errors in thinking and remembering. She is well aware of how memories can get larger and scarier when left to marinate without inserting all the facts surrounding it. Williams goes further and explains how some therapists can find a tidbit of someone’s past a bit titillating that may begin a wasteful search for past evidence of harm where there may be none.
