I am a psychotherapist and I have been working for Hospice for the last 13 years. I started using TAT 3 years ago. I had already used EFT [Emotional Freedom Technique] to deal with some of the negative messages that I felt were limiting my life and I was also using a technique called RET [Rapid Eye Technology] that is similar to EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing] and of which I became a practitioner. When a friend of mine introduced me to TAT, I felt some reluctance to use it because I was familiar with other methodologies and because the mentioning of God made it less scientific to my eyes. I soon found out that TAT was very focused on the particular traumatic message, while EFT, in my experience, was more “generic” and required longer and RET required someone to act as therapist. With TAT the messages dispelled faster and my behavior as well as my feelings and insight concerning events changed naturally, and what made all this even better was that the change has been permanent.
Recently, I have been working on some remaining angry feelings towards my mother for my emotionally abusive upbringing. This stuff was old. All my life I had done lots of work on it, but the anger was still there and so was the blaming. I am glad to report that for the first time in my life I have been feeling compassion towards Mother! This to me is a miracle by itself.
