ADDRESSING DIFFICULTIES WITH CHANGE, TRANSITION, AND PROGRESSION IN LIFE: HBLU™ AS AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR PHOBIAS

 

ABSTRACT


Change cannot be denied and it is constantly prevalent in our external and internal worlds. How we adapt to change has an important impact on our lives as it can define the quality of our lives. I, the researcher, am interested in people’s change, how change affects people and how I can help them to progress fast and effectively.

 

Therefore the aims of this qualitative study are: 1) to introduce an alternative way to view phobias, and to 2) examine the effectiveness of an Energy Psychology method, HBLU™, in the detection and resolution of phobias in the context of change, transition and/or progression. This study's findings confirm the wide-ranging effect the HBLU™ simple phobia treatment had on the 10 participants and suggests that the HBLU™ simple phobia protocol was successfully implemented to treat all the participants, thereby relieving them of their phobias of change or transition.
