The Power of Emotional Change
Dr. Fredric Mau specializes in Narrative Therapy, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Focused Brief Counseling.
He is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), Distance Credentialed Counselor (DCC), Board Certified Hypnotherapist (BCH), and Certified Instructor of hypnosis (CI).
Emotions, not information, drive behavior. People take action because something is more emotionally comfortable than something else. Real change is not based on surface-level information; rather, it occurs when you reframe your emotions. Our stories drive our lives - reworking your story at a conscious or unconscious level is a powerful path to health.
We’ve all heard the joke, “That’ll take years of therapy to fix!” But how long does it take to make profound emotional change? Research has shown that you can fall in love in just one-fifth of a second (Ortigue, et al., 2010, cf. “Syracuse,” 2010). Substantive change doesn't always require a long, arduous process. Dr. Mau works from a brief therapy model to help you experience deep emotional change in just a few sessions.
The key is to focus on solutions. Solution thinking is very different from problem thinking. While some approaches to therapy focus on gaining insight or focus on the past, these problem-focused approaches simply bring the emotions of the past into the present--where they don’t belong.
In contrast, a solution-based approach with a future orientation is more effective. Dr. Mau's approach emphasizes embracing emotional health.
Dr. Mau was awarded the Hypnosis Research Award at the 2016 National Guild of Hypnotists convention. This is "awarded to a
member who has contributed valuable research for our profession this year."
