How Can the Energy Psychotherapies Help Me?
Behaviour change therapy doesn't derail the client and cause great distress. Quite the opposite!

Maybe the best way to start this discussion is to define what these new forms of psychotherapy such as EFT, are not Firstly, the purpose of behaviour change therapy is not to derail the client and cause great states of pain. Any behaviour modification therapy that does that is a dinosaur in this day and age. Great big abreactions that make it difficult for a person to drive home after a psychotherapy or hypnotherapy session are not the way to go.

These belief systems keep recreating the negative emotion or limiting belief that lies at the root cause of the problem. It is really important to grasp that a belief is not a fact. It is difficult to argue that water boils at 100 degrees Celsius at sea level, because overall it is a truth. However, a belief such as women make bad drivers is open to serious challenge. Tony Robbins calls beliefs "opinions with legs ". I think we will all agree that we have often changed opinions, they are not facts and are not set in stone. Another useful challenge is that many of our beliefs are not ours anyway. They came from somebody else. In many cases we have inherited them from parents or family members. We need to examine these inherited beliefs very carefully, because by using another person's map of the world, our own interests are not necessarily being served as well as they might .
