Frequently-Asked Questions

Q. What Is Dianetics?

A. The word Dianetics comes from the Greek dia meaning “through” and nous meaning “spirit”. Dianetics is defined as what the spirit is doing to the body through the mind.

Dianetics is a spirtual healing technology that can help relieve unwanted emotions, sensations, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses (illnesses caused or aggravated by mental stress).


Q. Do Dianetics Counselors recommend medical treatment?

A. Yes. When there is a known medical condition that responds to standard medical treatments it is recommended that clients seek medical treatment for the physical aspects of any illness. Dianetics can help address the emotional or spiritual aspects of illness to help with recovery where those are a barrier to wellness.


Q. Is Dianetics hypnotism?

A. No. Dianetics utilizes specific techniques outlined in the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, and does not use hypnosis. During a Dianetics counseling session you will be awake and aware, and you will increase your awareness and understanding of the mind and life through the use of the techniques.

Q. Does Dianetics use psychiatry or psychology?


A. No. Dianetics counseling is done without drugs, shocks or surgery. It is also done without evaluating for the client and telling them what to think.  Using the specific techniques of Dianetics, the client is guided to address the hidden incidents in their past that are holding them back from their potential, or creating a negative effect on their life, and they come to their own conclusions or realizations by the use of the techniques.

During Dianetics counseling, you will not be told what to think, but you will have your ability to think clearly for yourself restored by receiving Dianetics counseling.


Q. What are some of the benefits reported from Dianetics counseling?

A. People who have received Dianetics counseling have reported relief from grief and loss, increased sense of well-being, relief from anxiety and depression, recovery from psychosomatic (stress related) illnesses, improved personal relationships, improved ability and increased IQ, shorter reaction time, and restored happiness.
