Resources

With my many years in the field I have come across many talented people that have developed tools and information to help individuals, families and couples. Here I have provided links to books, websites and other treatments which you may be interested in. Some very interesting people and powerful tools.

Alternative Treatments

Thought Field Therapy – This therapy uses nature’s healing system to balance the bodies energy system and quickly eliminate negative emotions. Thought Field Therapy (TFT) provides a code to nature’s healing system. When applied to problems TFT addresses their fundamental causes, providing information in the form of a healing code, balancing the body’s energy system and allowing you to eliminate most negative emotions within minutes and promote the body’s own healing ability.

EFT Universe –  The main website for emotional freedom technique. A form of energy psychology that is easily learned and used as a self help technique and an effective clinical tool. (energy psychology in all of it’s forms is considered an “experiemental” technique. While it is growing in popularity among clinicians and the general public, further empirical scientific evidence is needed to show it’s effectiveness. However I beleive it is useful and effective for many things- very effective with anxiety )

Self Help Products – Try Dr. Jeanette’s holistic psychology, self help products, workshops and private trainings.
 
The “Contemplative Mind In Society” – The contemplative mind in society is dedicated to developing the contemplative mind. This means developing one’s ability to simply “be,” with awareness, openness and clarity – one may become more centered, peaceful, and confident. The personal transformations that often occur with regular contemplative practice, such as increased patience, compassion, and concentration, can play a part in the positive transformation of organizations, businesses, and other institutions. We are dedicated to the idea that contemplative awareness, when incorporated into contemporary life, can help produce a more just, compassionate, and reflective society.

I am a huge John Gottman fan. He is one of the most renowned relationship researcher of our time.

In his “relationship Lab” he has observed thousands of couple’s interactions and has written numerous books for the average person that explain, in easy to understand terms, what makes a successful relationship and what will cause relationship failure. He is an excellent writer too!
