WELCOME , you'll become a acquainted with the components of the Thought Field Therapy algorithms that you'll be using to manage your own emotional problems. 

 Algorithm is a term and a concept rooted in mathematics. In the context of math, it refers to a common solution to a problem ( for example, a solution for finding the highest common divisor). One authority defines the more general notion of an algorithm this way: " A sequence of instructions to be followed with the intention of finding a solution to a problem. Each step must specify what steps are to be taken, and although there may be many alternate routes through the algorithm, there is only one start point and one end point." 

  In medicine, algorithms are treatment formula or guidelines to be followed for diagnosing and/or managing specific diseases. they are sets of proven steps that, when followed diligently by doctors, can produce more accurate diagnoses and more efficient and successful patient care. 

  In Thought Field Therapy (TFT), algorithms are used for treatment. I developed them over time, using the Causal Diagnosis procedure unique to TFT. While it's not necessary to understand this complex process, keep in mind that each component of every algorithm was tested on hundreds of clients and shown to have a very high success rate before becoming part of this program. Only when the common efficacy of the treatment sequences could be shown did I grant them algorithm status. All of the algorithms in this blog have a proven rate of success of 75% to 80 percent, and they are a way to enter the healing world of TFT with extraordinary ease. 

  Over the years, I developed a particular treatment patterns that works best for a given disorder. As a result, this blog-site provides a different "recipe" for each psychological problem. For example, the precise elements and their sequence in the formula used for the fear of flying differ from those in the formula used for coping with a traumatic event like sexual abuse. If you follow the simple instructions of each algorithm, you can ease a variety of problems whenever necessary. 

  TFT as a whole has a unique architecture, so while the algorithms may differ in their specifics, they have common elements. Here, you will see in the algorithms that you eventually try. The following sections are meant as an introduction to and explanation of these common elements ; DO NOT ACTUALLY TRY THEM OUT OR PRACTICE THEM UNTIL YOU GET TO THE LAST POST. At that time, you'll learn the precise sequence of steps created for your particular problem. These next few pages should not be used as a "trial run," but rather as an orientation to what you'll be doing in the following post.


Every algorithm begins the same way. The first step is to intentionally think about or concentrate on the Thought Field associated with your emotional distress or problem. Here we are not being negative thinking but we are processing the emotions. In essence, you'll bringing thoughts associated with the problem into your awareness. You'll be asked to consciously think about your own particular fear, anxiety,  or trauma.

  Again, in other therapies it really doesn't matter what you're thinking about while you're being treated. But with TFT, it makes all the difference in the world. To be treated successfully, you need to tune the perturbed Thought Field -- in other words, think about the problem that you're trying to resolve. This will bring to the fore the specific perturbations and related information that are active in the problem and need to be addressed in the treatment. In the early years of TFT, I compared this process to tuning a specific radio station. If you turn the dial to another station instead, you will get completely different information. Or imagine asking your tailor to alter your trousers without bringing the trousers to him; the job just wouldn't get done. 

  Psychologists have known for many years that particular thoughts have definite and profound effects on an individual. This concept is fundamental to clinical psychology . As you turn your attention to the event, circumstance, or person that is the focus of your psychological problem, it's understandable that you'll have an emotional reaction to those thoughts. But even though the process of tuning a Thought Field may make you feel distressed and upset, it's an important  element in healing. This is real processing the true emotional problem and not denying the reality of the existence of the emotion or suppressing it deep within the subconscious mind. Hence the success rate of TFT application. 

  When you tune a Thought Field and it produces intense emotions, this will be clear indication that perturbations exist. These perturbations will appear immediately upon tuning the Thought Field. When I was developing TFT, I would give patients plenty if time to tune the Thought Field. I'd watch their eyes and their facial expression to make sure they really had it. I later learned that the tuning tales place instantly. If you don't become upset, there are probably no perturbations present, although there are exceptions. Most notably, a person repressing his psychological problem may not become distressed merely thinking about it; however, if he were to be exposed to the actual situation -- foe example, speaking in public -- then his anxiety would surface. The Causal Diagnosis procedure if TFT can identify precisely what perturbations ate present, allowing even a repressed person to be treated successfully.
