Borne from the crucible of medicine and Gestalt Relational Therapy, QEC works by transforming limiting self beliefs, behaviour patterns and physical conditions - safely and quickly.
Many people who are new to QEC are keen to understand a bit about the process so that they have an idea of what to expect when seeing a practitioner for the first time.
A typical QEC session begins with dialogue. This simply means discussing your unique needs by sharing your story with the practitioner. Most commonly, you’ll be asked to describe the issue or issues that you are facing right now - those that are ‘uppermost’ in your awareness. The process of working with QEC can be likened to ‘peeling the layers of an onion”, focusing on the outermost layer before moving deeper to the issues that lie beneath.
In each session, after dialogue, what follows is the QEC method - a combination of powerful techniques designed to work with the subconscious mind. We create a gamma frequency that allows the neuroplasticity of the brain to ‘rewire’ itself - dispensing with unhelpful belief systems from conditioning and past trauma.
To help you to understand QEC a bit better, it might be helpful to look at the ways in which QEC differs to conventional ‘talk therapies’, such as counselling or Gestalt. These are the main differences:
In QEC, you heal yourself. You have full control of the process. You choose what to work on and the pace you are comfortable with. The practitioner is simply there to ‘hold the space’, gently guiding and assisting your own healing journey. This is a revolutionary shift in mindset away from the idea of needing someone to ‘fix you’ and eliminates the need for you to surrender to years of expensive, traditional therapy.
Absolutely safe, with no side effects
QEC is absolutely safe. There are no pharmaceutical prescriptions involved, no meditation, repetition or mantras. QEC has been used to change the lives of thousands of clients over the past 14 years - rapidly, effectively and safely.
QEC is highly effective online or in-person
The entire process is particularly effective online - meaning you don’t have to travel to see a practitioner. Our practitioners have years of experience in working with clients online, all around the world. You are of course, welcome to see a practitioner in person. Simply search for someone near you.
The power of QEC comes from the unique combination of Gestalt psychotherapy and the QEC method. Working at the level of the subconscious mind, we use the neuroplasticity of the brain (its ability to ‘rewire’ itself) to free you from limiting belief systems, heal from past trauma and change unwanted behaviour patterns.
Frequently asked questions
How can QEC help me?
QEC is a practical tool that can help us to become the person we would truly like to be, reaching our full potential. It is particularly effective in helping to ‘clear the baggage’ from our past, which often manifests in repeated, unwanted behaviour patterns that impact ourselves and others. Much of the cutting edge work being done by Dr Salmon is in the area of past trauma and it’s here that QEC is particularly effective. However, there is no limit to the ways in which QEC can help. If you suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, grief, phobias or fear, QEC can help. It is also a powerful way to improve relationships and remove ‘blocks’ to performance, both in the workplace and in sport.
How is QEC different from other talk therapies?
Traditional talk therapies such as counselling and psychotherapy work by exploring the environment factors (past and present) that could be causing your unhappiness. By unpacking these negative experiences, the hope is that a new level of awareness around the issue might be reached - a new way of seeing things that can bring about healing and closure. This process can take a long time - perhaps even years - for someone to make substantial shifts in thinking and behaviour, for the simple reason that the process engages the conscious part of the mind.
QEC works deeper, with the powerful ‘supercomputer’ that is the subconscious mind. It is here that we store our deepest beliefs, the ones that shape who we are and how we believe the world to be. Working with the subconscious allows for changes that are much more rapid and lasting. Using the neuroplasticity of the brain, QEC ‘rewires’ our neural pathways, freeing us from the limitations of our past.
Do you have to believe QEC for it to work?
No, you don’t. However, if you try to approach your QEC sessions with an open mind and a willingness to embrace something that’s a little different, it will transform your experience. QEC bypasses the conscious mind, working deep at the level of the subconscious. Most people report feeling different after one session but the real proof of success is in experiencing the positive changes in your life that follow.
Does the process involve hypnosis or an altered state of consciousness?
Definitely not. You remain totally conscious and in full control at all times. QEC does not involve any form of hypnosis, meditation or mantra.
Clients report rapid, lasting changes. How can a life-long problem or habit simply disappear in a few short sessions?
The ‘speed’ with which QEC operates can be assigned to the fact that QEC uses the ‘supercomputer’ of the subconscious mind and the plasticity of the brain to create new neural pathways. Under the right conditions we can change the way we think and feel about something - and fundamentally change how we experience it and therefore behave.
On the surface, our world appears to work in a predictable, mechanistic way. Yet, when we get down to the basic building blocks of all matter at the subatomic level, everything is pure energy in a constant state of potential. We create our reality by communicating with this Quantum Field through our thoughts and feelings. Thoughts are electrical impulses, emotions are magnetic. The principles of Quantum physics show that the electromagnetic influence of the mind on our reality is powerful and immediate, and that when we change our thinking, we change our experience of the world.
How would I know that my long-held beliefs have been changed?
Quite simply, you’ll think and feel differently about the problem. In fact, it helps to keep a record of the issues that you work through with your practitioner because revisiting the list at a later date might surprise you. Looking back, many people report finding it hard to remember ever having suffered with those issues.
Is there an age restriction for QEC?
QEC is only done, at this time, with people 16 and over. Dr Salmon currently works only with parents and family systems. If there are problems in children under 16 years of age, it is recommended that you contact Dr Salmon directly to discuss what can be done.
I don't have any “issues” as such but I feel that I’m not reaching my full potential. Can QEC help?
Fundamentally, ‘blocks’ to performance or creativity are self-imposed limitations. Most often, this is completely out of our conscious awareness. QEC is very effective in identifying the causes of our limitation - why we aren’t operating from a place of ‘flow’, at full capacity - and changing our thinking to align closer to our conscious goals. Whatever your performance goals in life - QEC is a simple, powerful tool to help you achieve them.
Does QEC have any negative side-effects?
There are no physical or emotional side effects from QEC, with the exception that some people report feeling tired after a particularly big session. Rest and good hydration allow the changes to integrate easier.
