Client Centered Parts Therapy (CCPT) is based on the assumption that our personality is composed of a number of various parts and that the answers to a client’s problem can be found in the client’s own inner mind. It has proven to be especially valuable in helping clients resolve inner conflicts; and it also has successfully helped clients overcome other problems as well.


This is the online version of the 2-day live workshop we (Roy Hunter and/or Bruce Eimer) co-teach. This course presents the principles and practice of Client Centered Parts Therapy to help clients resolve inner conflicts; and explains the entire process step by step. For years, psychotherapists have recognized the utility of conceptualizing the psychodynamics of clients complex presenting symptoms in terms of the interactions of various personality parts (also called ego states, selves, subpersonalities, etc.). The late Charles Tebbetts based his Parts Therapy on Paul Federn’s work, but evolved it into a client centered approach and combined it with deep hypnosis in order to help clients resolve inner conflicts. Roy Hunter has updated the work of Tebbetts, and explains how Client Centered Parts Therapy differs from other similar techniques (such as Ego State Therapy, Voice Dialogue, etc.). The client centered approach is based on the concept that the client’s inner mind can resolve inner conflicts when the facilitator acts as a mediator and asks the right questions.
