In the following article the authors, a husband-wife team who live in The Netherlands, illustrate their way of blending regression therapy and homeopathic medicine. Collins is a homeopathic physician, who first trained as a traditional M.D., then trained extensively in homeopathy. Her husband, Esser, is (among other things) a regression therapist trained in the Dutch school. They find that their two approaches complement each other.
By blending two disciplines, homeopathic medicine and regression therapy, we find a way of thinking and working which has proved very fruitful to us in helping “helpless” patients. We share an urge to go to the core of a problem with our patients, and to help them re-discover their own healing capacities. We realize that human beings have an innate healing power, which in illness has somehow been blocked or stuck, and that our primary duty as therapists is to assist in searching out and releasing those blockages.
In our separate fields as therapists we have found the same principles, though they may have different terms. Since we assume that readers of the Journal are well acquainted with the concepts of regression therapy, but perhaps not with homeopathy, we will first give a short outline of what classical homeopathic medicine involves.
