A Special Invitation To Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioners From Callahan Techniques…
The healing world of Callahan Techniques® and Thought Field Therapy® spawned the beginnings of many therapies, often collectively called Energy Psychology.
Most have a basis in the original form of Thought Field Therapy, and, together have all performed a tremendous service to improve the effectiveness of healing and the field of psychology.
As many practicing and receiving benefit from these newer therapies may not be aware of the history and the underpinnings of their beginnings, we have created this brief history and timeline guide.
In this guide, there is a short list of some of the numerous versions of energy therapies, having their beginnings in TFT. The very fact that there are so many versions, varieties and methods and that they are all effective to varying degrees, and have helped over a million people worldwide, is a testament to the power of the original, Thought Field Therapy (TFT).
A therapy, which can be copied, tweaked, and adjusted by different practitioners all over the world, with each version remaining effective, and doing no harm, demonstrates the true underlying power and simplicity.
While all of the various methods and ideas have developed over the years, TFT has also been a dynamic, constantly changing and improving modality.
We welcome all EFT practitioners and those of the various energy-based therapies into our TFT family and friends.
Find out how we can be a much stronger force for change and improvement in the world of healing.
“What’s fascinating about TFT is it’s quick, painless and its success rate is almost unbelievable… anywhere from 80-97%… which is really unheard of in the field of mental health in any type of treatment over this whole century.”
Shad Meshad, President,
National Veterans Foundation and Founder / Author of
the National Veterans Centre Programme, USA.
“If it had been a horse race, which the investigators as well as the innovators were all at pains to deny, the TFT contingent would have won, hands down. Requiring virtually nothing in the way of personal interaction, TFT can bypass all that tedious therapeutic business of joining, empathy, history-taking, reprocessing and the like, and zero in on the problem immediately at hand. With 10 minute treatments not at all unusual…”
Mary Sykes Wylie PhD,
Senior Editor, The Family Therapy Networker (Jul/Aug 1996),
reporting on a comparative trial of therapies for PTSD.
“TFT is extraordinarily powerful, in that clients receive nearly immediate relief from their suffering and the treatment appears to be permanent… it does not require the client to talk about their troubles, something that often causes more emotional pain and discourages many from seeking treatment… it is extremely efficient (fast and long lasting).”
Charles Figley PhD,
Professor and Director, Psychosocial Stress Research Program
and Clinical Laboratory, Florida State University.
“Here we have patients and family members going through acute and chronic medical, surgical and psychiatric problems. I am using Callahan Techniques on a daily basis for rapid treatment of trauma of various kinds. These rapid treatments are far superior to traditional crisis intervention techniques in that the client / patient receives amelioration of the problem in minutes rather than days, weeks or months.”
Dr. M. Marie Green,
Clinical Social Worker, McKay-Dee Hospital, Ogden, Utah, USA.
“Dr. Callahan’s technique is one of the most revolutionary and helpful therapy procedures I have ever come across.”
Dr. Gary Emery PhD,

“I find it exceedingly rapid and applicable to a wide variety of patients.”
Dr. Patricia Carrington,
Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry, Rutgers Medical School.
“It is beyond amazing. I have never seen any treatment so powerful.”
Dr. Martin Swartz,
Research Associate Professor, New York University Medical School.
“I have received ongoing feedback from many of the doctors and psychologists who have incorporated your techniques into their practice, and comments like ‘extraordinary success with the Callahan Techniques in my most chronic, difficult-to-treat cases…’ ”
Dr. Lee Pulos,
President, Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
“Using your technique I was able to help, in minutes, 10 nervous executives speak… (in public) …with no trace of their former fear.”
Dr. Christopher Hegarty,
Renowned and Award-winning Speaker / Trainer.
“I asked my problem patients to try your technique and in one week it has proven 100% successful for those who have used it.”
