About P.S.H. Therapy

The gentle and contemporary approach to healing unresolved, persistent negative emotions and stress-related symptoms.

Private Subconscious-mind Healing is a natural, non-intrusive drug-free intervention that offers lasting change.

P.S.H. is unique in that it recognizes that it’s not necessary to reveal—or even to be consciously aware of—what is often intensely personal, private information, in order for lasting inner change to occur.

Processing emotions and responses is something we do all the time, however sometimes things feel so difficult or traumatic, that they overwhelm us and we can’t fully process them.

At the other end of the spectrum is a lower level of trauma, likely experienced over a period of many years. Though not as dramatic, these feelings can also be too much to cope with and again, we may not even be consciously aware of them, though we are aware of the negative effects that are having on our life.

This results in many of us, as grown adults, suffering the consequences of dynamics that have been established at a subconscious level during our earlier years.

The original intent of the subconscious-mind would have been to employ a positive and protective mechanism. Over time though, if we haven’t fully processed emotions that arose from uncomfortable experiences, the subconscious simply responds in the same way now as it best knew how to protect us back then.

What is P.S.H.?

P.S.H. (Private Subconscious-mind Healing) is a natural therapy modality that helps people experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD and a wide range of other stress-related disorders.

People seek a P.S.H. therapist to help them solve the problems and symptoms they’ve not been able to deal with using conscious effort, willpower, medication or other conventional modalities.

P.S.H is a completely independent, stand-alone therapy model that is progressively replacing the more common forms of subconscious-mind techniques.

Rather than merely helping a person cope with issues, P.S.H. is specifically designed to help clients resolve the underlying subconscious causes of their presenting problems.

Conditions helped with P.S.H.

Each of us is unique, in both our genetic inheritance and our life experience. Unprocessed feelings can be experienced in many ways. Even to those who have grown up in the same family can have a completely different experience of life in that family, one compared with the other.

Clients have reported lasting benefits in the following emotional, behavioural, physical and cognitive areas (where underlying organic factors have been medically ruled out):

Anger (inappropriate, uncontrolled etc.)
Anxiety & related problems (incl. phobias, panic etc.)
Grief (ongoing, unresolved)
Low self-esteem (and related issues)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD—in all of its variants)
Chronic stress & excess tension
Chronic pain
Fatigue (incl. chronic fatigue syndrome)
Gastrointestinal problems (incl. irritable bowel, digestive issues etc.)
Headaches (for which no physical cause can be found)
Insomnia (and other sleep issues)
Skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, etc.)
Addictions / compulsive behaviours (incl. food, tobacco, drugs of dependency, alcohol, sex, etc.)
Eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, over-eating)
Irrational behaviours, unwanted habits e.g. smoking
Nightmares / uncomfortable dreams
Performance blocks
Intimacy Issues
Concentration / memory problems
Racing ('busy') mind

Please note: Other issues not listed may also be addressed. Bear in mind that sub-consciously-based problems are often inter-related.  


The difference with P.S.H.

“The wonderful thing is when we work at the subconscious level, we don’t need to talk about or analyse our feelings or problems in order to resolve them. In fact, it’s usually better not to.” 

~ Belinda Hawkins | P.S.H. Therapist

P.S.H. respects the natural dynamics of the human mind by recognizing that the subconscious is a private part of us.

That is why P.S.H. doesn’t involve cognitive behavioural intervention, counselling, diagnosis or speculation about the problem and/or its origins. There is no probing and analysis of a person’s inner life as this kind of approach can actually hinder rather than help to change problematic inner dynamics.

With P.S.H. the therapist guides the client to make the necessary changes entirely within the deep subconscious. It’s all about a process of inner communication, so the client doesn’t need to talk or disclose information during that part of the session.

It’s often a great relief for people to know that subconscious problems don’t need to be brought to the conscious mind in order to be resolved. A person doesn’t need to be re-traumatized in order to heal. True emotional healing is always a very gentle and private process.

Please note that P.S.H. is not meant to be, nor is it claimed to be a substitute for medical treatment. It is the most effective means we have to help people deal quickly and effectively with a wide range of problems and issues that are the result of subconscious dynamics. If you have concerns about a medical or physical condition, we recommend you first seek the advice of your medical practitioner.


“Neuroscience now shows we store our emotional experiences at a subconscious level in our emotional memory. This is why we must first work at this deeper level in order to help truly resolve the difficulties we face…” 

~ Belinda Hawkins | P.S.H. Therapist

When we work with the subconscious, we allow the wisdom of the inner self to take charge of the healing process.

It is the therapist’s job to teach a person how to truly hand over to that subconscious part, then to trust it, to stay out of its way, to be patient with it, and allow it to do whatever it has to do deep inside to bring about the changes that lead to healing. 


When we’ve established someone would benefit from subconscious change it’s very simple—the key is to focus uncritically on what they’ve got to do within themselves.”

~ Greg Brice | Principal Director

P.S.H. and chronic pain

Science is now beginning to develop a deeper understanding of the connection between chronic pain and the emotional history of a person.

At the same time, for many people there is now more of a shift into self-awareness and an increasing need for intelligent, simple and effective healing modalities that help people at a deeper level of their being.

For many of us, the repeatedly and ongoing experience of strong negative emotions (be they conscious or subconscious), can and does have a direct effect on the health of the body.

Many people are surprised to learn that solving their problems at the subconscious level, has helped alleviate their symptoms as a result. While there is still much to be discovered in this area, ASTA’s Continuing Feedback Program (CFP) has reported after working with P.S.H. , significant progress for those suffering chronic pain.
