"I should definitely tell my husband how I feel..."
"But really, it's my own fault for being this way..."
"Except, he just doesn't seem to understand what I need..."

What are parts?
Parts are what are termed sub-personalities but they aren't the multiple personalities that you might be thinking of. In fact, we all have inner parts that are divided or in conflict. And while we may assume that this is a bad thing, it is actually a strategy for us to be able to manage stresses, traumas, parental programming and internal conflicts.
Think about how many times you feel like you want to do something, or stop doing something but then there is a 'part' of you that is pulling you in the other direction. Both your adult self and this inner part have your best interest in mind but they are coming from a different perspective, and in some cases have limited information and differing motivations. Importantly, no parts are bad even if you feel like a part is completely sabotaging your life. Each part has its purpose or goal and its set of strategies for achieving that goal.
What is parts work?
The goal of parts work in hypnotherapy is to resolve a client's issue by having the person's true Self or adult self dialogue with a part or parts from the subconscious. Those parts can be unknowingly creating internal conflict, unwanted behaviors or suppressing emotions that need to be expressed. Using various guided strategies within that dialogue the client is able to bring that part in alignment with the clients goal and desired outcome.
It's kind of like an internal intervention and conference meeting where all parts involved in a persons issue are brought together for the betterment of all.
How parts work helps
Once you start to understand this natural internal dynamic that is occurring in all of us, you can begin to grow in leaps and bounds. Here are 5 things that you can accomplish from doing parts work:
Now that you have this new understanding of these parts that are at work within you, you can see if you notice some of your own parts. Pay attention to see if they are hijacking your thoughts, your body or emotions in different situations where you are currently struggling. If you feel emboldened you could even try to talk to a part with your own mind to ask it what its job is and how it does this job. When you better understand your parts and they better understand you, great things can start to happen!
