Energy Psychotherapy
Energy Psychotherapy is a synthesis of psychotherapy with Energy Psychology. Energy Psychology has its roots in ancient knowledge about the ways in which energy operates within the body, but is now supported by a substantial evidence base. The basic principle underpinning these new methods is that trauma is encoded within the body's energy field. In energy therapy simple procedures are used to guide the client to gently stimulate his or her own energy system while focusing the mind upon the target problem. Often this will rapidly release the underlying psycho-energetic structure that is generating or maintaining the current problem.

Energy Therapies introduce a number of strange concepts and practices which are difficult at first for the Western mind to accept. Dr Phil Mollon, a respected clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst who has been studying and using these therapeutic methods for over ten years writes of his experience:

“Many of us, having worked for years with other methods, find that energy psychology appears to offer results that are more rapid, deep and gentle than we or our clients have hitherto experienced. We have struggled with our own perplexity and scepticism, including the natural and almost ubiquitous tendency to reject whatever violates our fundamental assumptions, and we find ourselves embracing this developing field of therapeutic enquiry with persisting enthusiasm and astonishment.”

NICE Guidance on the treatment of PTSD published in December 2018 includes Energy Psychology interventions (which they call “Combined Somatic and Cognitive Therapies”) among the most cost effective interventions for PTSD and recommend further research .
There is now a substantial evidence base for the efficacy of Energy Psychology methods. See ACEP Research
