About the Authors

We are traditionally trained psychologists who, over a collective 40 years of clinical experience, have worked with talk therapy, the exploration of childhood and adult experiences, dreams, hypnosis, and other approaches to help our clients. We have always looked for methods that are safe, effective, and as rapid as possible. Never before have we seen or experienced a more powerful method that fits the above criteria than the thought energy therapy we describe in this book. In our clinical practice we have seen a 95 percent success rate with these methods.

We have written this book to share with as many people possible this exciting and, in many ways revolutionary new approach to emotional control. This does not mean an end to conventional therapies, however, it has the ability to eliminate unproductive emotional distress which can help people manage their lives more effectively. We want to share this knowledge and the method with as many people as are interested and open to a new way of dealing with emotions. We believe that this technique can be a sort of ’emotional first aid’ and much more for everyone. We call this technique Emotional Self-Management and have taken our clinical experience and put forth a procedure than anyone who can follow simple instructions with photographs and illustrations can use and benefit from. In addition to a method to release unproductive emotional distress the method provides a way to install positive thoughts and confidence.

We are very excited to be able to make this tool available and accessable for everyone to use for themselves to be in control of the day-to-day emotional stresses of life.
