Energy Psychology has been called “acupressure for the emotions.” It is a self-empowerment approach that draws from ancient spiritual practices and healing traditions. It provides simple methods for shifting brain patterns that lead to unwanted thoughts, actions, and emotions, such as fear, anger, anxiety, jealousy, shame, and depression. By tapping energy points on the surface of the skin while focusing the mind on specific psychological problems or goals, the brain’s electrochemistry can be shifted to quickly help:
- overcome fear, guilt, shame, jealousy, anger, or anxiety.
- change unwanted habits and behaviors.
- enhance the ability to love, succeed, and enjoy life.
The approach offers powerful tools for the clinician as well as potent back-home tools for the client. This class is a hands-on introduction that will teach you the basic principles and enough technique that you can immediately begin using Energy Psychology in your own life and make informed choices about how it might be integrated into your practice if you are a clinician.
Energy Psychology combines tools from conventional psychotherapy, such as focused imagination, with tools from healing and spiritual practices that understand the ” vital energies” that are at the foundation of physical and mental health. It works by stimulating energy points on the surface of the skin which, when paired with specific psychological procedures, send signals to the brain which may impact stress chemicals such as cortisol and DHEA, deactivate limbic system arousal, and rapidly alter neural pathways. In brief, undesired responses can rapidly be uncoupled from their triggers, providing you with greater ease and freedom to live your life more effectively and joyfully.
Energy Psychology is still a controversial development within the mental health field (the techniques look quite strange, are adopted from foreign ancient cultures, and the claims of a growing number of practitioners seem almost too good to be true), but evidence is mounting that these techniques are significant, powerful tools for both self-help and clinical treatment.
