  Psychologist Gale L. Joslin, Ph.D., tells the story of strolling with a friend along the boardwalk at Venice Beach in Los Angeles and describing the anxiety he was feeling about a psychopharmacology exam that both were going to take the following day. As they walked, the friend told Gale about a therapeutic technique he had just learned -- Thought Field Therapy -- that could help anxiety and many other psychological problems, and he suggested that Gale try it.

  Gale agreed, and for the next couple minutes, his friend led him through a TFT algorithm. He instructed Gale to tap near the eye-brow, under the eye, under the arm, and on the chest, and to add other elements as well , including counting and humming. As Gale later said, "By this time, I knew my friend was crazy! But, because he is my best friend, I humored him and did as he asked."

  Gale quickly recognized, however, that something quite remarkable was happening. Before the treatment began, he had rated his anxiety as a 10 on the Subjective Units of Distress (SUD) scale -- that is, it couldn't go any higher. But after the treatment, the anxiety had disappeared. Gale even tried to get the anxiety back, but he couldn't. It was gone.

  The following day, Gale took the exam without experiencing even a trace of anxiety. He completed the three-hour test in just one hour and scored very well. He is now a diplomate in psychopharmacology and a leading practitioner of Thought Field Therapy (TFT). With twenty years in practice, Gale has written, " I have never seen anything like TFT for effectiveness. What might have taken months or years of treatment now takes one or two sessions for most cases." 

  Over the years, I've found that one of the best ways to silence skepticism is to treat people with the TFT algorithms in a public setting, including on television shows. I've explained to TV producers that I don't want to merely talk about Thought Field Therapy (TFT) on their programme; it is much more valuable to viewers to see the technique being used with volunteers -- the more severe and long-lasting the psychological problems, the better.
