Eric Christopher, M.S., has applied the techniques of entity Releasement Therapy, as taught by numerous professionals, to patients on a psychiatric unit who are hearing unwanted voices. He has observed that the disturbing voices are immediately eliminated in certain circumstances, offering great relief to the patient. Here is an account of his experiences employing this modality. He encourages any person or professional who works with people who hear unwanted voices to consider research with this efficient process.
Exactly twenty years ago, Louise Ireland-Frey wrote an insightful 17 page article for the fall edition of the first volume of The Journal of Regression Therapy called “Clinical Depossession: Releasement of Attached Entities From Unsuspecting Hosts.” Twenty years later, I find myself writing an article to share my experiences in applying the techniques and insights of this healing modality while I’ve been working on an adult locked psychiatric unit, specifically with patients who hear unwanted voices. In addition to my private therapy practice, I’ve worked as a counselor on this psychiatric unit half time for 16 years. Roughly a third of the patients who are admitted to the unit experience what is considered by the established medical model to be auditory and/or visual hallucinations. In rare instances, the voices are reported as helpful, and occasionally they are funny. Mostly, however, the voices are not only quite distracting, but can be tormenting as they fill the patient’s mind with relentless vulgarities, or with command hallucinations to “jump out the window,” “cut your arm,” or “kill yourself,” for example.
