Reframing in Comparison with Other Methods

There are already many methods that support a positive development of the psyche. Each of these methods can help to build mental muscles. But what is the difference to other methods such as imaginary thinking, NLP, aftercare in psychotherapy, mental training, hypnosis or working with the inner child?

These five points make the NIKU method unique:

NIKU uses the neuroscientific idea of reframing to stabilize and strengthen your psyche with Mental Neuroimplants. 

NIKU can be performed autonomously, no therapist is required.

NIKU assumes that people do not suffer from disorders, but have unmet needs.

NIKU includes your past, present and future. 

NIKU allows you to make foreign, emotional worlds your own and thus offers unlimited space for personality development.

The number of people with psychological abnormalities is growing from year to year. Depression, burnout – all well-known diagnoses in people today.

Margit M. Schreier made NIKU exactly for these people. She says: “Behind this are mostly needs that want to be satisfied. When they are satisfied, people’s behaviour, mood and zest for life change automatically”.

Inner Representations – The Inner Companions 

Psychologically speaking, we are not individuals, but consist of inner dialogues with caregivers. We could really live without some of these inner dialog partners, but they stick to us like chewing gum and don’t let go. These make up our psychic characteristics. The German-Swiss psychiatrist Klaus Grawe calls these companions “Inner Representations”. 

Every person should be able to decide and answer to himself who he wants to let in. With NIKU you can simply replace these annoying, inner dialog partners with other people. If you love someone, you let go of any inner baggage.

There is no point in thinking of grandma’s garden and returning to the place where we felt comfortable as a child – as propagated by various techniques, including hypnosis. People need diversity. 

NIKU helps you to answer the following questions for yourself:

  • Who Am I today?
  • Who do I want to become?
  • What is the essence of my life?
  • Who accompanies me?
  • Who do I want to help me develop?
  • Who gets a place in my existence?
  • Who do I want to learn from?
  • How do I want to become?
  • Who will I be?
  • What do I want to achieve?

The intimacy of the ego in the mirror of one’s own biography is the most intimate good that a person carries within him: himself. This is the responsibility of the individual and can only be shaped and corrected by oneself, in other words: replenished. Strong inner representations promote psychological development.

Success and Degree of Self-Determination  

Aftercare is initially provided by identifying and admitting psychological needs. Looking back, a scenario is created (what does it look like, how does it feel, who is there) that would have met the actual, individual need – if the surrounding environment had allowed it.

Respect for Individuality 

The new frame is highly individual. No other person can guess this, only you yourself. Just as our faces are different in almost 8 billion people, the ways we satisfy our psychological needs is different for each person.

It is a presumption to believe that someone knows what another person needs. That is why NIKU relies on independent aftercare for one’s psychological needs.
