Ancaster, Ontario – Imagine two people in a snowstorm: one is complaining about the cold; the other is making snow angels. But it’s the same storm. We develop our sense of identity by projecting off external events; when we don’t like our behavior, we tend to blame the event. But our internal locus of control comes from a deeper sense of self. Energetically, our thoughts create our reality. If we can change our thoughts, our reality changes.

Lesley Hannell is a clinical psychological associate and founder of Lesley Hannell Counselling & Psychotherapy. For over 30 years, Lesley has empowered her clients to address the fundamental barriers preventing them from reaching emotional, mental and spiritual health by changing the structure of their emotional issues.

“When we change our thoughts, we experience physiological changes in the brain and in the body,” “New neural pathways have been formed. If we recall a traumatic event, it won’t upset us like it used to or create the same patterns of behavior.”

Though Lesley comes from a traditional academic background in clinical and counseling psychology, her passion has always been more eastern philosophies about life and wellness like meditation, yoga, Karate and Tai Chi. This passion led her to discover Energy Psychology, an emerging branch of psychology that works with the body’s energy system to reduce or eliminate emotional and psychological stress and distress.

“Energy Psychology seemed like a bridge between my two worlds,” says Lesley. “It changed my work dramatically because it allowed me to do things much faster.”

With Energy Psychology, Lesley says she’s able to address deep routed patterns of behavior in just 3-4 sessions. Preliminary research has shown  that Energy Psychology can be effective for war veterans suffering from severe PTSD.
