Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a treatment for various types of emotional distress invented by American psychologist Dr Roger Callahan in which the subject taps on acupressure points on the body while thinking about their problem.

In the simplest form of TFT knows as algorithm TFT the subject uses “off -the-peg” tapping sequences. In the most complex form of TFT known as Voice Technology TFT , made-to-measure sequences are diagnosed over the telephone while the therapist listens to the subject’s voice.

Treatments by Voice Technology TFT are offered to clients all over the world. However because of the restrictions imposed by Professional Liability Insurance clients cannot be accepted from the USA and Canada.

Colin has always had a special interest in hypnosis and alternative medicine. In 1999 he completed a one -year Diploma course in hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming with the British Society of Clinical and Medical Ericksonian Hypnosis (BSCMEH) .

Colin has also trained in NLP and is a licensed NLP practitioner. In 1992 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Health (FRSH)).
