What is Meridian Psychotherapy
- Meridian Psychotherapy is a therapeutic technique also known as Energy Psychology.
- It is a blend of psychological talking therapy, with an energy healing technique known as EFT (emotional freedom technique).
- The therapeutic effects of EFT have been clinically evidenced as effective, and can be remarkably quick.
How does Meridian Psychotherapy work
- Explores problems and provides treatment which helps give prompt relief to emotional problems.
- Calms and neutralises negative and limited thoughts, difficult emotional states, upsetting events and memories, and trauma etc
- Thoughts and feelings can cause disruptions in the body’s meridian systems, and activate the fight and flight system.
- Helps restore balance by releasing blocked energy systems hence reducing the distress experienced emotionally.
- Calms the fight and flight response/amygdala which may be triggered with certain ways of thinking and feeling.
- Works towards helping the brain re-file upsetting events as neutral so that stress and anxiety are no longer triggered.
- Research data at the Harvard Medical School and within psychology journals refer to the benefits of working with specific meridian acupoints
- Working with the acupoints reduces the amygdala activity in the brain related to fear, stress, phobias, ptsd, trauma and anxiety etc.
How is Meridian Psychotherapy performed
- The energy pathways around the body, are known as Meridians and each relate to specific organs, body systems and emotions.
- Each Meridian has an endpoint which surfaces on the skin known as an accupoint.
- Meridian Psychotherapy takes place by exploring the varying aspects of the client’s difficulties and problems experienced
- The client taps on their own meridian accupoints whilst the therapist taps on herself to help show the client
- The client needs to focus on the negative aspect of the problem
- A score is taken for the level of distress experienced for that problem (between 0-10)
- With the guidance of the therapist, the client talks about his problem, whilst tapping.
- Each routine of tapping is known as a round, and after each round a new score can be taken
- As the score reduces the client sees how the much the distress has reduced
- Further rounds continue until the distress is sufficiently reduced
- As the score for the negative emotion reduces, the focus can naturally change towards more of a positive way of thinking
- Final rounds focus on affirmations and inspiration.
How is Meridian Psychotherapy experienced
- Similar to when experiencing other therapeutic interventions, an abreaction may be experienced whereby there is a discharge of body energy.
- This abreaction may vary in form such as shaking, feeling emotional or crying and signifies the release of supressed emotions and trauma.
