What is the Hoffman Process

The Hoffman Process is a seven-day residential course that helps you discover who you really are, freeing you to make conscious choices that will improve your life, work and relationships. During the Process you will be taught tools and techniques to help you change the old behavioural patterns that are preventing you from feeling fully alive. Many participants see the Hoffman Process as the transition point between their life as it was, and their life as they would like it to be.

The Process has been established for more than 50 years, in 15 countries, and has benefited more than 100,000 people from all walks of life. It is recommended by many medical and health professionals, and has been the subject of scientific research

Is the Hoffman Process for Me? 

Some common reasons why people are drawn to doing the Hoffman Process include:

  • I feel stuck. Something is holding me back and I want to expand the possibilities in my life.
  • I think I’m going through a mid life crisis, a change of life, and I don’t know how to ask for help.
  • I know what I should do but often cannot generate the will to do it.
  • I often feel stressed, angry, resentful, embarrassed, or depressed. I want to change.
  • I work compulsively – often to avoid other aspects of my life. It impacts my relationships and happiness.
  • I often feel anxious or nervous for no reason. I don’t know where to get support. I need help.

The Aims of the Hoffman Process

The Hoffman Process works on the basis that an intense, condensed experiential programme can speed up someone’s healing journey and is considerably less time-consuming than months or years of traditional one-session-a-week therapy.

During the Process, you will:

  • Learn how to release and resolve persistent negative behavioural patterns of feeling unloved and unlovable. 
  • Examine the major influences on your life, trace the root of the adopted negativity, and release any pain, grief, anger, shame or resentment that has been stored there.
  • Reach forgiveness and acceptance for yourself and others.
  • Develop a more compassionate approach to personal relationships and family life.
  • Experience a deep sense of your own resilience, of life’s possibilities and be prepared to embrace change. 

Here, you can read numerous stories from people who have done the Process and how it has benefited them.
