Energy Psychotherapy:  A New Paradigm For Healing

     Energy Psychology is a family of healing methods that blend contemporary psychology, ancient healing traditions, integrative medicine insights and cutting-edge mind-body research.  In the practice of energy psychotherapy, these powerful methods are brought together with conventional psychotherapeutic techniques to enhance the therapeutic process and are clinically observed to consistently help with a wide range of psychological conditions.  many energy psychotherapists and clients report accelerated relief from emotional distress using energy psychology methods.

     Energy therapies work with the human subtle energy matrix, sometimes referred to as Qi, prana, auras, energy meridians, chakras, acupoints, or the biofield.  The existence of an energy field within and beyond all living things is a point of agreement between science and spirituality.  Energy psychology does not require adherence to any particular belief system, and its methods have been shown to be effective whether one believes in the practice or not.

What to Expect from Energy Psychotherapy

     Energy psychology is a remarkable family of self-help and practitioner methods that help promote high level mind-body health, performance, and creative expression.  However, energy psychology methods may not be appropriate in all cases.  As part of the informed consent process, it will be mutually determined if energy psychology methods are approprieat for you.  If a therapeutic relationship is established, my goal it to teach you the self-help aspects of these energy psychology methods so that you are empowered to use them, thereby decreasing your dependency on me as your therapist.

     Some clients may experience in the first session a sense of resolution in dealing with their fears, addictions, limiting beliefs or aggravating habits.  Others may find they need subsequent sessions.  Still others who have a positive experience with the presenting issue may decide they want to work on other issues or problems.

While preliminary studies and clinical reports support the efficacy of Energy Psychology, more research is required to validate these innovative methods.  Information about ongoing research is available on the Association for Comprehensive Energy psychology (ACEP) website:  http://www.energypsych.org/
