Stephen Brooks designed NAT as a simple, safe, and cost affective set of therapy techniques and lifestyle training that could easily be learned and applied by health professionals in hospitals and clinics worldwide or for personal use. His outcome was to provide fast and effective therapy techniques that could quickly eliminate suffering and allow patients and clients to move on to better, happier and healthier lives. NAT techniques easily integrate with other therapies and treatments in nursing, counseling, medicine, hypnosis, psychotherapy, social work and psychology etc and will make a considerable difference to the way that health professionals approach emotional problems. Our outcome is to see NAT being used worldwide by therapists and health professionals from all disciplines and by members of the public for their own benefit.

"When people interact with the world, thoughts arise which lead to feelings and emotions, these in turn influence our well being and decisions. For example, if we look at a flower we will have thoughts about the flower, these thoughts will then usually trigger positive feelings, making us want to look at the flower for longer. In other words, we have become attached to the flower and want to maintain the good feeling. The same thing happens when we are attached to other things or other people. When the flower dies we see it dying, we think about the decay and feel the loss. In other words our suffering is directly related to how attached we are to the flower. A strong attachment means a strong sense of loss and a low level of attachment means a low sense of loss. The same thing happens when we lose someone we love, or when something we enjoy ends. Brooks believes that we also get attached to things we do not like or experiences or behaviours that we want to stop. In other words we get attached to the need for them to stop. So people can get attached to the need to lose weight, to remove pain or no longer be fearful. Brooks believes that it is our attachment to the things we feel unable to change that causes us suffering.
He further says that once the attachment is in place, a secondary attachment can occur. This is where we become attached to the feeling of being attached, either attached to the feeling of being attached to something we like, or attached to the feeling of being attached to something we don’t like. The secondary attachment occurs within the mind / body connection when the brain has a thought about the feeling that has been created by the original attachment and this thought then creates a secondary feeling about that thought. Brooks claims that this process creates a thought-feeling-thought loop which intensifies the sense of helplessness even to where the person loses awareness of what the original cause of their problem was. For example, memories (thoughts) of a traumatic event may cause feelings of fear. The feelings in turn cause secondary thoughts that the fear may become overwhelming, these secondary thoughts in turn cause feelings of helplessness, and so on. Brooks says that this chaining of thoughts and feelings can get out of control and build up to complex problems, seriously impairing the life of people mentally and physically. NAT can break these chains effectively and instantly by disconnecting the attachment between feelings and the thoughts that create them and by preventing the attachment of feelings to thoughts in the first place.”
Skeptical? maybe you are...
That’s because you have been conditioned to believe that success can only come from hard work and attaching to materialistic goals. Yes that method can sometimes work, if you are very highly focused and self-motivated but then you need to commit to those goals every day often at the expense of what is really important in your life; your freedom, your family and your sense of well being. And then, even if you achieve your goals after all this hard work, you have to struggle to maintain your success, and this can be highly stressful, and the fear of losing everything you’ve gained can be ongoing and overwhelming.
"I have discovered that lasting success and happiness comes not by attaching to material goals but by not attaching to them, and instead, re-training your mind to not become a victim of the goals that will inevitably bring stress, fear and frustration. You can still have what you want, in fact probably much more than you would normally have, but without the effort or struggle you would normally have to put into achieving your success. The same principle applies to better health, happier relationships, looking and feeling good and giving and receiving love and respect from others”.
The secret is non-attachment, learned in the only way possible, through experience, through repetition, and then applied unconsciously in your daily life.
