Rapid Psychotherapy Yields Results Quickly

For those that want to move quickly through past traumas and issues, rapid psychotherapy techniques can assist in letting go of stuck problems in only a few sessions. Traditional psychotherapy believed that we needed to re-live" old hurts and traumas, but today's rapid psychotherapy methods understand better how memories and emotions are stored in the brain.

Patients still remember the facts of a past incident, but the emotional hooks are removed. The unconscious mind controls our reactions to the situations we face every day. Rapid psychotherapy methods can be used in a therapy session by a trained mental health professional to move through painful memories quickly. Once this is done, the old patterns do not subconsciously affect their current situation.

Rapid psychotherapy techniques include Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT), by Dr. Steven R. Vazquez, Ph.D.; Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), by Gary Craig; Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, by Dr. Francine Shapiro, Ph.D.; and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), by Laney Rosenzweig, LMFT.

Emotions play an important role in our lives, and every event has a related emotional state. They can be labeled as happy or fearful, pleasant, or unpleasant. Rapid psychotherapy helps people go from victim to strong survivor in four to six sessions, shifting feelings of shame, loneliness, fear and emptiness to peace and empowerment.
