Energy psychology focuses on the relationship between your thoughts, beliefs and emotions, and your body’s energy systems. When you have an emotional issue present, it will create a disturbance in your energy field and if this is not addressed, eventually the energy disruption could lead to physical illness.
By treating and resolving the emotional disturbance, and as a result correcting the flow of energy through your meridian system, you will find that physical problems often greatly improve or disappear completely. The emotional healing that takes place with energy psychology will also allow you to break free from limiting beliefs so that you can live a more joyful, fulfilling life.
There are various energy psychology therapies, each using slightly different tools. Because this type of psychology focuses on shifting energy blockages while addressing emotional issues, the results are powerful and rapid. The therapies I use in my practice are Emotional Freedom Technique and Matrix Reimprinting.
While the field of energy psychology is still relatively young, its evidence base continues to grow in both quantity and quality. As of July 2019, over 100 research studies, 5 meta-analyses & 12 review articles had been published on energy psychology methods in peer-reviewed journals.
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Technique is a long name for a simple process. But although it’s simple, it is also powerful. Its fast-acting potent effects have impressed many with the result that the therapy’s popularity has grown rapidly around the world and is increasingly being tested in research studies.
EFT was founded in the early 1990s by Gary Craig, after he trained in, and refined the similar process of Thought Field Therapy, developed by clinical psychologist Doctor Roger Callahan. Simply put, EFT is acupuncture for the emotions but without the use of needles. In an EFT session, your acupressure points are stimulated using gentle tapping while you think about the issue you wish to work on. As the points are stimulated this triggers energy flow throughout your meridian system which clears energy blockages formed by unresolved emotions from your past. As the energy blockages clear, emotional pain also dissipates.

Matrix Reimprinting (MR)
MR builds on the powerful effects of EFT but takes it to a new level. Rather than you just recalling a negative memory associated with an emotional problem, with MR the process goes a step further and transforms your memory into a new positive one. This allows you the opportunity to say and do the things you would have liked to have said and done originally. Other resources are used to strengthen the process, such as bringing caring people you know into the scenario held in your mind, who can provide extra support.
