In Gary’s own words:
I am the founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), I was born April 13, 1940 and have been intensely interested in personal improvement via psychology since my age13. That was when I recognized that the quality of my thoughts was mirrored in the quality of my life. Since then I have been self taught in this field, seeking only those procedures that, in my opinion, produced results.
I consider EFT, the core of which I learned from Dr. Roger Callahan, to be an important tool to achieving the highest levels of healing.
I also have high regard for Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) in which I am a Certified Master Practitioner. Please know that I am neither a psychologist nor a licensed therapist. Rather, I am a Stanford engineering graduate and an ordained minister and, although I don’t pound the table for any particular religion, I do come at this procedure from a decidedly spiritual perspective.read more
