Tap More Talk Less – Why I Don’t Use Conventional Talk Therapy

talking therapy selfhelp

One of the reasons I am so enthusiastic about the work that I do is that I have seen first hand how it can change people’s lives in just a few sessions. My ultimate aim is to get the techniques out to as wide an audience as possible.

One of the questions I am often asked is why I don’t use the more conventional talk therapies. The main advantages of the methods that I primarily use (EFT, Matrix Reimprinting and NLP) are:

1. Problems are dealt with at a subconscious rather than conscious level
2. The speed at which issues can be resolved

The subconscious is far more powerful than the conscious mind. This is covered in detail in both of Karl Dawson’s books* on Matrix Reimprinting and in my forthcoming book, The Financial Healer. I have found that with virtually every client I have dealt with, that the negative beliefs that they are running originate from an source that they wouldn’t have accessed at a conscious level.

This was highlighted last weekend when I attended an EFT tapping day where a number of practitioners got together to work on our own personal issues. Whilst working with one colleague, we were able to trace her feeling of loneliness back to her first day of school, her auntie moving to London when she was five, and not feeling loved by her mother. By her own admission, it would have been highly unlikely that she have come to this conclusion by thinking about her issue at a conscious level, as indeed she had thought about this problem consciously for a number of years.

Effectively her life has been underpinned by the belief of a five year old!

Once we understand where the issue originated we can consider whether that belief is still relevant today. Of course, for most people, the negative beliefs that hold them back are no longer relevant, and haven’t been for a very long time.

Once we have established the core belief, we look for other examples that reinforce these beliefs and view them through different eyes. We can then create new, positive beliefs to replace the old negative ones.

For many clients, I am the ‘last chance saloon’ as they have tried every other therapy of which they are aware. They are pleasantly surprised that the process doesn’t involve months and months of talking over the same issue or trauma. In fact, they don’t even have to discuss the actual issue at all as we are able to work ‘content free’. This comes as great relief to clients who come with memories of major traumas as often talking about the incident can be as painful as the actual incident itself.

Gentle tapping can reduce the intensity of the incident in a matter of minutes and remove the associated emotion. The client is left with the memory but with no emotional attachment which means that we can then look at the incident from a different perspective.

The best way to find out whether this will work for you is to try a free session. After all, what do you have to learn. I can be contacted at Mark@financialhealer.co.uk
