Tipi is a process that is uniquely efficient for resolving conditions such as depression, fear, anxiety, PTSD, anger, and grief. A critical benefit of this technique is the ability to resolve long-standing traumas and emotional patterns without emotionally re-activating the client. The results obtained are permanent.
A session to resolve an emotional pattern can be done in person or on the phone. Sessions rarely last more than 30 minutes.
TiPi session’s can:
- Heal the impact of a past trauma
- Resolve disruptive emotional or behavioral patterns (See a list of difficulties below)
- Remove blocks including fears, or things that you “hate” doing but still have to do
- Reduce fear and stress for more effective participation in life
The goal of a session is to experience total and permanent resolution of a specific difficulty.
How does TiPi work?
Our body stores the memory of the sensations leading up to the loss of consciousness (suffocation, heart rate increase, knot in the stomach). When we experience an emotional difficulty, those same sensations instantaneously resurface. Nicon found that by consciously re-experiencing these sensations allows emotional blocks to be integrated and resolved – permanently.
These patterns are deactivated when the event that created them are relived through sensations, without mental interference. It is through physical sensations and not intellectual analysis that using Tipi we look for, find, and re-experience the root of a fear or behavioral pattern. By giving attention to these physical sensations and how they shift, a natural and permanent regulation takes place.
Emotional Patterns and Difficulties that TiPi can resolve
These triggered situations indicate an emotion that needs regulation
- Escape – compulsive distraction found in drug use, meditation, shopping, hoarding, eating, gambling, sex, even exercise
- Inhibition – wanting to do something, but can’t do it, frozen
- Overpowering/controlling – need to take control of others or situation, passive aggressive, over self-control
- Represented by a subject comes up over and over again, family story, political argument, something that make you feel restless
- A belief that “I have to be right about everything”, refuse to be wrong, negative attitude
- Avoidance – I don’t do it, I go out of my way to not do it, avoid things people situations you don’t like
- Art Triggers – movies, music, painting etc that prompts an emotional response/stress
Where did TiPi originate?
The Tipi technique for Emotional Regulation was created and perfected by Luc Nicon (a pedagogy researcher and expert in behavioral communication) in France. His 2007 landmark study explored the origin of fears, traumas, and emotional blocks. Now more than 10,000 sessions a month are helping clients throughout Europe overcome their emotional difficulties. Individuals can also use Tipi to resolve their emotional and behavioral difficulties on their own.
