Thanks for checking out my online magazine. It is my intent here to assemble informative and useful web content regarding alternative or holistic mental health treatments. This may include news, clinical studies, theories on mechanisms of action, or creative examples of how these techniques are being applied.
Early in my career as a professional psychologist, I became aware of the limitations of conventional "talking therapy." Although standard techniques will always have their place, often the underlying causes of symptoms are never determined, inadequate relief is provided, or quite simply - it takes way too long to get there! I've always been fascinated with the mind/body connection. I've also marveled at how little we still know about the way the human brain works and the true nature of the universe. Working with these tools may give us better insight into all of the above!
I discovered that such techniques as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and hypnosis (I have a whole separate online magazine dedicated to it: http://www.scoop.it/t/cutting-edge-hypnotherapy) have truly led to profound, fast acting, and lasting transformations for my clients. Hope you enjoy learning about these tools and much more here!
