Below are just a few of the energy psychology success stories that I am grateful to have been a part of.
Weight Loss – Energy psychology techniques can rapidly and permanently reduce food cravings. I created a highly effective program, Lose Weight and Adore Your Body, based upon the best practices I have learned working with clients who successfully lose weight -and keep it off. Here are two of the dozens of success stories:
Sara, 56, had been struggling with an uncontrollable craving for 2-3 bowls of ice cream each night for 2 years. Dieting and willpower only made her cravings stronger. In one session, we were able to eliminate the nighttime craving for ice cream, and in three weeks she had lost 7 lbs. Sara has kept off the weight and is surprised to find that she doesn’t miss her evening treat at all.
Carol, 45, slowly and steadily gained weight after the birth of her third child and was 50lbs overweight when she first came to see me. She felt that her body was programmed to be overweight, just like all the other women in her family. We cleared a number of self-limiting beliefs regarding weight. She slowly and steadily lost all the weight she gained without dieting, deprivation, or “killing herself” at the gym.
Anxiety – Since energy psychology shifts the brain’s electrochemistry, it is an effective treatment for anxiety.
Molly, 16, had been extremely anxious about the start of the new school year. She could not sleep, had stress headaches, and felt like she had a heavy weight on her chest every time she thought about school. In the first session, we were able to decrease her anxiety so that she could sleep at night. In subsequent sessions, we worked together to eliminate all her other symptoms of school-related anxiety. By the end of her fall semester, she achieved her highest G.P.A. ever, but more importantly, reported finally feeling comfortable with schoolwork. Molly’s advisor emailed Molly’s mother saying she noticed “a remarkable positive” change in Molly’s attitude and performance at school.
Habitual Negative Emotions – Compulsive negative thoughts code in the brain in a way that prevents us from consciously being able to stop them. Energy psychology techniques send signals to the brain to neutralize negative emotions.
Mike, 20, could not stop feeling extremely angry towards a fellow college student, Sam. Late one Friday night, Mike and Sam had a drunken brawl that ended with Sam ransacking Mike’s dorm room. After an investigation, Mike was blamed for initiating the altercation and was expelled from living in the dorms. From that day forward, for months, Mike could not stop thinking about getting revenge. He talked constantly about how he had been unfairly judged and how he was going to “get even” with Sam. These compulsive negative thoughts were ruining his relationships with family and friends. When his grades took a nose dive, Mike turned to me for help. After several sessions, he was able to release his anger, and was surprised when he walked by Sam on the way to class, he no longer felt any anger at all. He said his anger felt like a distant memory that he couldn’t quite bring into focus.
Performance Goals – Energy psychology techniques can also be used to install new behaviors.
Robert, 39, general counsel at a small bio-tech company was tremendously confident and competent in all aspects of his job save one – he dreaded public speaking, and specifically feared presenting at his company’s Board of Directors meetings. Although he would thoroughly prepare and practice his speech, he would have panic attacks a few days before each meeting. At the meeting, he would gut-through his presentation, feeling sick and dizzy the entire time. Robert had tried many strategies for overcoming this anxiety, including traditional therapy, but nothing worked for him. He read about energy psychology helping athletes with performance goals and came to me to see if it could help him with his fear of public speaking. Within the first session, he felt immediate relief. After five sessions, he was not only able to eliminate his public speaking anxiety, but he became a relaxed, skilled presenter. Robert looked forward to speaking at the next BOD meetings because he now believed public speaking to be one of his strengths. He has had several BOD meetings since our last session, and Robert reports that his anxiety is “strangely gone” and the BOD presentations feel “as relaxed as having a martini on the beach”.
