On-going Progressive Session Induction Method (OPSIM)

On this site we occasionally mention OPSIM - Here is a brief history and the reason it is important in our programs.

OPSIM© is a tried and trusted process developed over many years to ensure hypnotherapy sessions (originally developed for the The IBS Audio Program 100) are optimized. This method was developed to seek new ways to enhance therapy outcomes and move away from the standard process of delivery used in therapy which originally consisted of repeating the same session over and over again over several months to achieve outcome. Michael knew there must be a better way!

OPSIM© challenged the idea that mere repetition of sessions was enough. In fact, contrary to popular belief, simple repetition of the same single session often ingrained, rather than released the presenting negative thoughts and feelings, which (for many individuals) were then carried through from the beginning to the end of treatment.

OPSIM© works with the natural human ability of the learning and re-learning process. It reinforces previous learning and knowledge, revisiting accepted truths and thereby provides a confident foundation of treatment which is progressively added to through interlinking sessions. This OPSIM© method of treatment allows greater flexibility and often improved success for the patient, encourages patient compliance and provides for and allows the user to take part in their own healing.

OPSIM© was developed by Michael Mahoney for use in his IBS Audio Program 100™ which is now used in 48 countries. It was found that this enhanced application to audio programs could usefully be integrated into other programs. Now OPSIM© is used widely in Michael’s major programs.

Each of our audio programs has a specifically developed and structured listening approach based on the OPSIM method. It is better for the listener, enhances the effectiveness of the program, and generally makes for a better listening experience with improved outcomes. OPSIM is unique to our programs.
