After over 40 years in development, Energy Psychology is beginning to positively revolutionize many therapists’ approaches to treating psychological issues. Directed at the body’s own energy systems, Energy Psychology is considered by many practitioners and theoreticians to treat at a more fundamental level than many traditional methods based on emotional reliving, catharsis, insight, visualization, cognition and biochemistry. Significant and observable results are often reported at each session, leading to lasting profound psychological improvement.
Energy Psychology methods have been found to be clinically effective in the treatment of anxiety, panic, phobias, addictions, anger/rage, trauma/PTSD, depression, guilt, physical pain, and for peak performance enhancement. However, this approach is currently considered to be experimental, since limited empirical research has been conducted to date.
