Thought Field Therapy
Thought Field Therapy was developed by Dr. Roger Callahan, a Clinical
Psychologist of over 30 years, who was also dissatisfied with the results of
traditional therapy and was searching for a faster, more painless, more effective
way for his clients to be relieved of their symptoms.  He found it, and has been
developing it over the last 17 years.  Now it is available to all.
Let us explain what TFT is.  Thought Field Therapy uses the same Energy
Meridian System used in the medical treatments of Acupuncture and
Acupressure.  Instead of treating physical illness, TFT uses the energy meridians
to rapidly reduce or eliminate many kinds of emotional and psychological
distress, often in a matter of minutes.  TFT treats trauma, fears and phobias,
anxiety, panic, anger, depression, grief, obsessive thoughts, performance blocks,
addictive cravings, and more.  TFT is non-invasive and does not involve
prolonged re-living of the problem or medication.  It can be a specific treatment
or part of an ongoing therapy process.

How does Thought Field Therapy work?  We all experience the effects of
"thought fields" in our everyday life.  By definition, a field is an "invisible sphere of
influence", like a magnetic field, or the gravitational field.  Think of it:  when we
focus on a problem we can tangibly feel the "invisible influence" of that thought in
our bodies, its "field", especially if that thought is particularly distressing.  
Thinking about the problem may make us uncomfortable, angry, fearful, sad,
upset, or stimulate us to act, or avoid acting in some unwanted way.  Thought
Field Therapy treats the emotional distress by clearing the disturbance in the
thought field.  During treatment, the client focuses on the firmly tapping on
precisely the correct points on the upper body in precisely the correct order.  the
thought is no longer distressing and the client no longer experiences the
upsetting feelings associated with it.  This opens the way for more choices,
options, personal freedom and personal power.
To use a simple example, when a person with a phobia of snakes thinks about
snakes, they suffer intense fear.  This fear is evidence of the disturbance in the
thought field.  When the phobia is treated with TFT, the disturbance in the
thought field is eliminated and the person can think of snakes, and be in the
presence of snakes, with little or no distress.  In the vast majority of cases this
relief is immediate, complete and lasting.  This technique is used, of course, with
many more complicated problems.

We can even successfully treat the unconscious thoughts and emotions that are
causing unhappy patterns and limiting our freedom and power.

Dr. Callahan has observed, through working with thousands of clients, that TFT
is effective 80 to 90% of the time, unheard of in studies of traditional therapy
approaches, and definitely beyond any "placebo" effect.

Charles Figley, Ph.D., Head of the Psycho-Social Research Program at Florida
State University says fo TFT, "it is extraordinarily powerful in that clients receive
nearly immediate relief from their suffering and the treatment appears to be
permanent."  Dr. Lee Pulos, President fo the Canadian Society of Clinical
Hypnosis says, "The rapidity of this treatment is astonishing..... with little or no
relapse.  I have never experienced anything like it in my 30 years as a Clinical
Psychologist."   To use a simple example, when a person with a phobia of snakes

What problems can be helped with TFT?  In our practices, we have seen TFT
make real and lasting changes in our client's lives.

We have seen TFT dissolve the present effects of past traumas such as abuses,
crime, accidents, and negative personal events large and small.

TFT has accelerated the recovery process from depression, anxiety, and panic
disorders, addiction (including smoking), phobias, anger, obsessions.

We have watched TFT eliminate blocks to success and personal performance.  It
can be effective for public speakers, actors, singers, teachers, salespeople, etc...
or anyone wishing to enhance their success.  It can even eliminate job interview
anxiety!

TFT has dramatically reduced destructive patterns in personal relationships,
parenting, and families so they can be enjoyable as they were meant to be.

We have seen TFT reduce emotional issues that interfere with satisfaction and
productivity on the job.

TFT has helped people in recovery successfully manage addictive cravings and
the ups and downs of life without returning to their addictive substances or
behaviors.
Who practices TFT?  Therapists can be trained at Levels 1 & 2, and at the more
advanced Diagnostic Level.  At Levels 1 and 2, therapists use "algorithims", or
standard "recipes", for treating common problems, often very effectively.  At the
Diagnostic Level, therapists can determine individualized treatments, work with
more complex problems, and overcome difficulties that could interfere with the
results fo the treatment.  Therapists who have been trained in Diagnostice
procedures carry the designations TFT DX.

Needless to say, we were extremely skeptical when we were first introduced to
Thought Field Thereapy:  it is a huge paradigm shift and looks so different from
our usual approaches to therapy.  But the more we use it, the more we are
amazed at the dramatically positive results.  When our clients are open to using
this technique, they are amazed too.

It is so exciting to see the rapid healing and enjoyment of life emerging in our
clients.  This is what we became therapists for!
