Psychotherapist Team Merges Brain and Body to Balance Relationships

Man helping woman balance on logNoble and Elizabeth Harrison are psychotherapists and spouses. Neither role is an easy one, but they have succeeded at both. They know a little about how to keep a relationship alive, having been married to one another for 32 years. In a recent article, Elizabeth Harrison shared one of their new techniques and why it has been so effective with so many couples. Harrison and her husband had seen countless couples seeking to change their relationships. However, most of the time, the real issue was that one partner wanted to change the other. With 25 years of experience in the field of psychotherapy and marriage therapy, the Harrisons knew that the only way to get one partner to change was for the partner seeking the change to be the catalyst.

After spending decades working with couples and watching the frustration, the Harrisons set out on a journey to find a method that would be easy to deliver, would be easy to learn, and would have long lasting results. By combining several existing approaches and tailoring them to include energy methods as well, Brain Body Balance was born. This brief therapeutic approach is designed to rewire the brain so that change can occur. And although this strategy does not work on everyone, Harrison insists it works on everyone who tries it.

Ultimately, this program focuses on changing rooted behaviors. “When you get the roots, the weeds can’t grow back . . . no wait, no struggle, no need to repeat,” said Harrison. The goal of Brain Body Balance is to remove the things that are blocking you from becoming the love energy in your relationship. When that occurs and you become love, it is inevitable that the relationship will change. Harrison stresses that nobody lacks the adequacy to attract and keep love in their lives. They just lack the skills to do it. Using the Harrisons’ technique, and others like it, can help individuals make that permanent change that they’ve been longing to make. And once that happens, love is sure to blossom.

    This is quite interesting that this was deevloped by a husband and wife team who took the time out of what I know have to be hectic individual schedules to work on something together to help other couples maintain and achieve the same sort of balance that these two so obviously have.

    i never heard of a husband and wife. doing therapy together i mean.
    that would be such a great idea to get advice from a man and a woman who are still married after all these years.

    This all sounds a little too hippy, dippy, and trippy to me. Become love? Do what?

    I personally would like more information on this technique. The whole article seemed a bit vague to me. Yes, the article gives us the name of the technique, but what about some practical steps we as readers can take? I am very open minded to trying new things, but it is very difficult to do so when I don’t know what it is I am supposed to be doing. Some more information would be very helpful.

    it is so true that if u want love u have to give love. People just don’t understand that sometimes.
    I wish my ex-wife had understood this better. yes she always wanted me to change and yes i needed to! ha!
    But i think id a been more willing to change if only she had been more loving to me because I am only human after all right? she could have used some changing herself for real but I did good just keeping my mouth shut most of the time.
    The truth is i loved my wife so much and would have done anything to keep her happy but sometimes all the nagging and yelling just got so old i had to just leave the room and go putter around in the garage.
    of all the things i regret in my life. She is definitely the biggest one. I wish i had been stronger and stood up to her more when she said she wanted to leave.

    I like the weed/root analogy and hadn’t thought of that before. I guess it is true that if you can just get to the root of the problem, you don’t even have to worry about the different ways it shows up. Where’s my Round Up?

    So many relationships would turn out better. We expect change in each other but not ourselves when I think about it. So easy to want a change and yet so difficult to bring it in to your own. Why is it so easy to expect yet so difficult to provide? Is this human nature? Or is it the comfort of expectations? Is it natural or is it a characteristic of our flaws?

    I think that this is very appealing especially for men and women who are looking for a brief and quick way to reconnect with their spouse, but in a way that will have lasting and not just short term results.

    exercising along with my wife has certainly brought us closer. not only as a team but also on a mental level. doing things together is a good way of connecting with your partner if you ask me.
