Thought Field Therapy
The definition of Thought Field Therapy is as follows:
“…a treatment that when applied to a psychological problem an individual is focusing upon will modify discrete information patterns in the Thought Field, the fundamental cause of all negative emotions.”
Or in the words of it’s founder:
“This work is not like any other psychological approach. I believe that we have found the basic cause of psychological problems. This underlying cause is unrelated to other previous theories. Unlike a placebo, you don’t have to believe in the treatments; as you will see they work even if you don’t believe in them!”
Roger J. Callahan, PhD
When we think of a particular problem (such as a specific fear) we generate an individual thought field in much the same way as an electrical field is generated around an item of electrical equipment. According to Dr Callahan’s theory, emotional problems are generated by equally specific information patterns in these thought fields, which he describes as “perturbations”.
These perturbations have been found to be the generating power behind the emotional signs and symptoms recognised by conventional medicine. Most existing therapies simply attempt to subdue those symptoms or teach the patient coping skills. Whatever the outcome of such treatments the cause of the problem in the first place still remains. In order to remove the perturbations completely and therefore the problem itself, one must apply the correct code.
TFT treatments work like opening a combination lock, we may well know all of the numbers, but if they are not applied in the correct order, the lock won’t open. Thought Field Therapy diagnostic procedures not only reveal the correct code, but also the application sequence required for successful treatment.
When the identified energy points are addressed in the correct order most people notice a rapid and dramatic improvement in the way they feel. A common response of patients when asked to think about their problem following the treatment is “I can’t think about it” This could not be true as in order to be able to say that you must be thinking of the problem. A more precise statement would be “Now when I think about the problem that upset me moments ago, it no longer upsets me”
