I would concur. Too demanding, over-bearing, emotionally unavailable, sitting around in his skid-marked underwear - wretched behavior!

Have you ever heard of "Hoffmann Quadrinity Process"?

Yes, I have - intellect, emotions, body, and spirit.

I don't know enough about it to form any real conclusions but my first reaction is that it's just 1 of those fake therapy models. Sure, it can claim successes; but that doesn't necessarily make it genuine.

I'm suspicious of any therapy that claims to revive suppressed childhood memories except under very tightly controlled conditions. It's too easy for False Memory Syndrome to rear its ugly head.

Maybe, but the results, not the underlying theory (almost not present), is what it counts, and the results are often good (at least they were on me).
The best experience of my life.

I agree up to a point. If the results are genuine, then yes. However, as I mentioned, False Memory Syndrome can be a problem. It can make false results seem genuine.
