Energy Psychotherapy is the integration of Energy Psychology methods
into the psychotherapeutic practice.
It is a development of the talking therapies,
taking counselling and psychotherapy further.
“Purely talk-based forms of Psychotherapy, although not without value are simply not able to engage effectively with the realm in which patterns of emotional distress are encoded- the area of the interface of the psyche and soma, the body’s energy field”
Dr Phil Mollon Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy 2008
Energy psychology (EP) is a collection of mind-body approaches for understanding and improving human functioning. EP focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviours, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield).
Energy psychology techniques were first popularised in the early 1980s by Roger Callahan, Ph.D. under the name of thought field therapy.
EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques is the most widely excepted and researched EP modality. Within an EP framework, emotional and physical issues are seen, and treated, as bio-energetic patterns within a mind-body-energy system.
EP has resulted in the development of associated methods and models to treat psychological and emotional problems, facilitate health and wellbeing, and improve human performance. These models and methods are usually used within an integrative or holistic approach to practices such as psychotherapy, counselling, coaching, integrative medicine, and other healing modalities.
In the clinical world, EP models have been beneficially applied to assessment and treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, pain, stress, psychophysiological issues, and self-sabotaging behaviours by a broad range of healthcare providers, to regulate affect and promote emotional and physical health. Treatment results have been shown to be enduring and relatively rapid.
Sessions can be online via telephone or face-to-face with social distancing in place.
Energy Psychotherapies provide powerful tools for working with any painful experiences from the past which may continue to affect how you experience life in the here and now. Many symptoms such as depression, poor self esteem, anxiety and stress related physical conditions and many other conditions have their roots in unresolved distress from the past, Energy Psychotherapy can get to these traumas and release them from the energy system.
The methods used in energy psychotherapy are very non-invasive and entail tapping on the meridian points or acupressure points mainly on the face and hands while recalling what ever is troubling the client. These techniques are similar to acupuncture but without the Needles and are easy to apply and learn for use outside sessions.
