What is Energy Therapy?

Psychotherapy is a process by which the therapist works collaboratively with a client to help them heal, grow, learn and expand by working through life challenges or difficulties. Psychotherapy is often seen as traditional “talk therapy”, and as the saying goes, “words are power”. What this means is that words are a form of vibrating energy. They have an energetic fingerprint which creates change and movement as a result of the law of cause and effect. The goal is to help create positive and healthy change and movement within an individual. Talk therapy in and of itself is a form of energy therapy.

Talk therapy approaches that I draw from are: Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Family Systems Therapy, Diversity Focused Therapies.

Talk therapeutic approaches work mainly with the mind's energy whereas energetic approaches like Meditation or the Emotional Freedom Technique can work with emotional, physical and spiritual energies as well offering a more holistic approach to healing.

Energy Therapy is where a practitioner makes use of energetic approaches to aid in self- discovery, awareness, healing, and growth on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Everything is energy. We are all full of vibrating atoms and subatoms. Everything that you see, hear, touch, and feel has a vibrational frequency. Energy is the building blocks of life. Hence, it would make perfect sense to tap into those building blocks if we are to truly heal ourselves. That is the reason why energy techniques, like the emotional freedom technique (EFT), that work with the energy of the human body and mind through tapping on acupressure points, are becoming more and more prominent within the field of psychology and psychotherapy.

One of the main goals of therapy is to raise your vibrational frequency. Feelings, emotions and thoughts that are associated with feeling "lighter," like joy and happiness, excitement and elation, as well as feeling states like calmness and stillness are said to have higher vibrational frequencies.
