Mickel Therapy is.....


Mickel Therapy is not a talking therapy like CBT. The therapist will not delve into your past to try and identify the cause of your woes. Nor will they help you to look at things with a different slant. What Mickel Therapists do is provide you with a set of tools which you can access as and when needed throughout your life. Don’t panic, it isn’t an actual set of tools, although there may be pens and paper involved at times.


A Mickel Therapist will enable you to understand the link that exists between emotions and the impact they have on our physical self. It is only in Western medicine where we have made the division between our emotional/mental health and our physical health. In Eastern medicine the two are seen as inextricably linked. Mickel Therapy looks at reconnecting the emotional and the physical to enable people to live a healthy, medication free life.


In the first session a Mickel Therapist will look at the history of the client and will then explain the way in which the therapy works. There will be discussion about the healthy neural pathways that we aim to develop in clients as well as an explanation of the impact suppression of negative emotions can have on the hypothalamus. The first few tools will be provided for the client to practice using before the next session.


Mickel Therapy is unlike some other therapies as the client cannot attend one session per week and do nothing in between. There is need for the client to commit to practising using the tool in order to develop the new neural pathways in their brain, which, over time, will enable to responses they develop to become automatic. If a client is unable to do this, they will not find Mickel Therapy beneficial. It is not a prescription that you take when required or directed. It is a change in the way you respond on a daily basis.


The first tool a client is introduced to is The Keys to Health. There are 3 of these:


1.       Relates to setting boundaries

2.       Relates to effectively communicating with self and others

3.       Relates to putting yourself first


The use of these tools is the basis of Mickel Therapy. They are backed up with the understanding by the client in how to use them and how to identify if they are being effective. They can then be used in conjunction with other tools, such as a balance sheet, how to worry properly.


The outcome of the therapy is that each client has developed knowledge on what they can do at any point when they experience a negative emotion, in order to deal with it in a healthy way. This means that the ill-effects such suppression has on a person’s physical health is no longer an issue and their health improves.
