20 years ago, at the height of his career and as one of the world’s most respected hypnotherapists and trainers, Stephen Brooks gave everything away to friends and family and went to meditate in the jungles of northern Thailand.
He meditated for 6 hours a day for 9 years.
His quest was to find the root cause of all suffering and to create a therapy to deal with it. What he discovered was beyond his own expectations – a new way of living that transforms all suffering into freedom and a new approach to psychotherapy that dissolves lifelong problems within minutes.
Stephen Brooks uses a specific set of principles as core treatment for problems, these are based on Buddhist psychology techniques taught by Buddha over 2600 years ago.
Stephen’s approach is based on the concept that all problems are maintained and reinforced by attachment. Through discussion Stephen rewrites the way the brain processes thoughts and feelings by creating new synaptic connections in the brain and over-writing previous neural pathways. He does this by creating non attachment to problems through a series of therapeutic negotiations at the unconscious level.
Stephen achieves a similar result to cognitive therapy and mindfulness training but within minutes rather than months and he focuses on the positive consequences of these rapid and powerful changes.
The change are verifiable by the client and others during his teaching, and the changes are usually permanent. To date no other teaching or psychotherapy can claim the same immediate results.
Stephen’s teaching is a practical evidence-based self-help experience that removes attachment to emotions or feelings associated with psychological problems.
