What is Mickel Therapy?


Mickel Therapy is a treatment developed in 1999 by Dr David Mickel, a GP in Scotland. Mickel Therapy seeks to address problems linked to the hypothalamus gland in the brain. This gland is responsible for regulating all the systems of the body but, when it becomes overactive it can create a wide range of symptoms. Mickel Therapy has developed over the years and does not look at the hypothalamus in isolation, rather it looks at how the hypothalamus is part of a network of systems that is involved with emotion.


Mickel Therapy is NOT a form of psychotherapy and does not seek to change our thinking!


Think of it like this.......


If you were to sit on a pin, how would you react? Would you continue to sit there, in pain, and think positive thoughts about the pin and what it was doing? Would you tell someone that you were in pain? Would you cry out? If you did all of these things but did not remove the pin you would continue to be in pain. It is only when you remove the pin that your body can get the message and stop sending the symptom of pain. The process of Mickel Therapy is similar to this. We look at the cause of the symptoms, our emotions, and deal with ensuring that emotions are dealt with in an appropriate manner.



What can I expect?



Mickel Therapy if usually carried out face to face. However, if there are no therapists in your area it can be carried out via Skype or on the phone. Each session usually lasts an hour and there should not be a need for prolonged attendance at sessions. Just attending the sessions will not, however alleviate the symptoms. Clients will be given various tools to use between sessions and will be asked to keep notes on how theri symptoms have been over the week and what tools they have used.
