Daily Mail: Pause Button Therapy News

Pause Button Therapy News

The Daily Mail featured a story about Katie Drew, a past client of the Elite Clinic in Spain. Katie has lost nearly half her body weight, thanks to PBT. The title of their article was 'The Fat Controller'. This was because she used a mock DVD-style zapper to help her stop and think about what she was eating. She explained how she now 'paused time' and really considered the consequences of her actions. And, as a result, she often made completely different choices. Interestingly, it was also noted that the device and technique had positively changed other areas of her life. Read the full story via this link.

Twickenham School in Birmingham, UK trials

pause button therapy news

UK primary schools in the Midlands evaluated Pause Button Therapy. Gay Jones, Educationalist, co-ordinated a trial of PBT at Twickenham Primary School to help manage the difficult and challenging behaviour of six of their pupils. The children had extreme behavioural and emotional difficulties, and had been unresponsive to all other attempts to modify and manage their behaviour. The trials were highly successful. All of the children were able to grasp the concept quickly and easily. Additionally, parents, teachers, fellow pupils, as well as the children themselves, reported significant improvement in behaviour, emotional regulation and academic performance. You can also read a review of the findings of these trials in detail in the Pause Button Therapy book. (see chapters ten and eleven; Hay House, 2012).

John Taylor, Deputy Headteacher, and Nathan Ross, Head of Pastoral Care, of Twickenham School, both spoke highly of the positive impact that PBT had had on the school. They outlined the benefits the technique had brought for teaching staff, for the children’s peers, for the classroom environment, for the parents and families of the children, as well as for the children themselves. Nathan stated that there had been a “dramatic change” in the behaviour of the children who were using PBT. He added that the school intended to use it more broadly, to help children with milder problems.

John also spoke of the benefits of a technique that was “so simple” to use and administer, yet “so complex” in what it does and how it works. He said that most behavioural modification approaches were complex and time consuming, and therefore difficult to implement. PBT is the reverse, yet remains highly effective.

Pause Button Therapy/TactileCBT is for anyone who’s ever made a mistake in their life and never wants to make one again. It's for anyone who wants to make a change.
