Working with a client with schizophrenia

Be very careful about working with someone with schizophrenia. It is a very serious medical condition. Schizophrenics have very weak energetic containers which can easily collapse under the pressure of a therapy session. Even general healing work needs to be done with great care. Schizophrenics are used to running their energy a certain way and may not be able to tolerate a more “healthy” pattern. Ideally, any work would be done as part of a team with a qualified medical doctor who also understands the issues involved in energy work. – David Jordan

Rosalyn L. Bruyere mentions energy work and mental illness in an interview she did. She has a strong caution against it.  -  Laura Davidson

If the healer is aware of family systems, systemic entanglements and / or can offer gentle chakra cord work, then it would be ok in my experience. – John Payne

One of the symptoms of schizophrenia is feeling influenced by others (people or things) in various (strange and often diffuse) ways. Distance healing is to be avoided to keep the treatments as concrete, tangible, actual, positive and specific as possible. – Christoph Weber

Care needs to be taken not to flood the system with energy or emotion. Energy workers often end up colluding with the magical thinking and other aspects of psychosis, rather than helping. – Jonathan Bessone
