What is ETT Therapy?

Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT) is a form of therapy that often rapidly alleviates emotional distress, as well as physical pain which has been cased by that stress. The term "transformation" refers to the unusual degree of improvement that occurs when ETT facilitates change through the therapeutic use of light and/or color wavelengths. It is a non-drug approach that can bypass the intellect and directly receive unresolved emotions around personal conflicts. ETT combines the best of the new research on interpersonal therapy with new discoveries in visual brain stimulation. 

ETT Professionals believe that therapy should be:

  • Effective: focused on producing the client’s desired results

  • Thorough: completely resolving the client’s problems

  • Timely: brief therapy, often resolving problems in as a little a single session

ETT involves a certain type of empathetic interpersonal relationship between the client and the therapist. Each of us develops a characteristic way of relating to others that was originally influenced by our family of origin. These characteristic ways of relating are called “attachment patterns” for which there is now massive scientific research. These attachment patterns are responsible for the manner in which we regulate our emotions. Most psychological conditions are largely the result of inadequate emotional regulation. If a therapist understands a client’s attachment pattern, the therapist can interact with the client in ways that connect with the client effectively and actually influence improvement in brain function. Therefore, when a client happens to experience strong emotions, the therapist can guide him or her in ways that “contain” or change emotions.

Within this therapeutic relationship, visual brain stimulation can be used to relieve distress at rapid speeds. When light enters a person’s eyes, there are cells in the eyes called photoreceptors that convert what one sees into neural impulses. These impulses travel to almost every part of the brain and nervous system. If the therapist controls certain features of what the client sees, the direction and destination of the neural impulses can be precisely guided to the portions of the brain responsible for a certain symptom. When this process is guided well, the exact emotions, memories or thoughts responsible for a particular distress can be brought to complete relief in seconds, minutes or usually within a single session. - Emotional Transformation Therapy International Association

Who is it for?

The Emotional Transformation Therapy method has been used for trauma recovery-acute trauma and PTSD, anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, sleep disorders, depression, spiritual and religious issues, adult ADD and ADHD, OCD, and couple therapy.

Jules likes to think that Emotional Transformation Therapy, along with other trauma therapy methods, is very similar to stitches. Think about getting a large cut on your leg, you need stitches now. Do the stitches heal you? No, your skin heals you, but the stitches are absolutely needed to bring the skin close enough together so that your natural healing cells can do their work. ETT is like stitches for the brain. It allows the therapist to access a variety of parts of the brain while speaking about a single issue. This allows the brain to integrate information rapidly and effectively.
