The branch of psychology concerned with the scientific study of positive human functioning and flourishing on multiple levels that include the biological, emotional, cognitive, spiritual, personal, relational, institutional, cultural and global dimensions of life. Also defined as the scientific study of the strengths, virtues and capacities that allow individuals, communities and institutions to thrive.
The science of how the mind affects the brain and body and vice versa to determine a person’s health and wellbeing. Dr. Levy specializes in teaching his clients how to develop their emotions, cognition (thinking and perception) and spiritual awareness to overcome disease and disability and/or achieve their goals for robust health and happiness.
Talk therapy that explores thoughts, feelings and behavior for the purpose of problem solving, achieving higher levels of functioning and increasing the wellbeing, health and happiness of a person, couple, family or group.
Progressive relaxation techniques, guided imagery and psychotherapeutic guidance used to help a person achieve heightened focus, concentration and mental power in order to attain their goals for health, wellbeing and success.
Techniques used to calm and focus the mind in order to achieve a state of awareness in which the attention is highly focused and enhanced, one in which stressful thought and feeling are set aside and a much higher, more accurate level of thought, insight and mental power emerge. This state of awareness brings about the relaxation response — the biological opposite of stress. Meditation increases size and activity in 8 specific areas of the brain associated with deeper awareness, better memory, better analytical skill and more self-control. It deactivates anxiety in the brain’s default mode network and produces calm mental clarity. The brain’s neural pathways are also made larger and more direct by meditation so we think faster and smarter.
A relaxed body and a calm mind are necessary for effective meditation. Many people have trouble relaxing enough to meditate, get frustrated, and give up before they can enjoy the benefits. Dr. Levy invented hypnotic meditation to solve this problem: his method uses progressive relaxation techniques and guided imagery to relax the body and calm and focus the mind so you can slide into meditation with ease and enjoy the benefits right away, without the frustration.
Dr. Levy’s trademark protocols that combine psychotherapy, clinical hypnosis and meditation. Extreme de-stressors evolve the mind much faster than any one of these three methods alone, allowing you to tap levels of knowledge and power that are ordinarily elusive, and use them to achieve any noble goal: health of mind and body, overcoming chronic stress and adversity, enjoying vast gains in personal power, achieving extraordinary levels of success in any endeavor, finding the deepest meaning and purpose of life, or attaining enlightened awareness.
Use of the mind and mental processes to explore the deepest meaning and purpose of life and bring it into being.
Use of specific mental procedures to expand and improve the body’s electromagnetic energy field and discrete fields associated with the brain, heart, pancreas and other critical organs and systems. Usually referred to as biofield energy therapy in the scientific literature.
