Learn how to promote fast and effective emotional healing with this unique advanced energy approach combining tapping with provocative language patterns and liberating laughter!

Sydney, Australia, 23-24 November

Presented by Steve Wells and Dr. David Lake

Do you want to:

• Learn radical new techniques to promote rapid emotional healing
• Break through the boundaries of the possible
• Dramatically increase your effectiveness and results
• Bust out of your limiting beliefs about change
• Laugh as you learn and change

Provocative Energy Techniques (PET) is a unique advanced emotional healing approach which combines the power of energy tapping (as used in EFT, SET and other Energy Psychology techniques) with elegant provocative and paradoxical communication techniques and warm, liberating humour from Provocative Therapy. The result is an approach that both delights and transforms.

"A most fantastic experience ... your work is the therapy of the future." Sharon Toole, Ph.D, Toronto, Canada

PET provides an inner freedom which is missing from most other approaches to human change - even many energy therapy approaches

This unique approach:

  • Shatters the illusion that change must be painful, slow and hard
  • Gets rapidly to core issues and accesses energy and motivation for change
  • Is paradoxical - PET uses resistance to change in the service of change
  • Releases suffering through warm, liberating humour combined with elegant mind-body techniques
  • Is easy on the client and easy on the practitioner - and is an antidote to burnout
  • Makes change fun whilst simultaneously addressing deep issues

This approach is for you if you want to take your results and your self-development to the next level.

It is for those who are willing to step outside the mainstream to consider new possibilities.

This workshop is open to practitioners, coaches, and counsellors as well as for those seeking a new approach to personal development.


PET is not for everyone. If you think change must be long, difficult and hard, this workshop will blow your former paradigms out of the water. If you require politically correct language, get upset at adult themes, or you don't have a working sense of humour, you'd be better to stay at home, as PET deliberately plays with stereotypes to challenge stuck thinking patterns and get you thinking and feeling in new ways.

If, however you are open-minded enough to consider new ideas, if you are looking for something different, if you are willing to explore new possibilities and you are looking for a way of getting better results, then this could be just what you are looking for!

Workshop Content

This workshop starts with a review of the basics of Simple Energy Techniques (SET), and how to use it to relieve anxiety, trauma, PTSD, phobias, grief, sadness and other negative emotions. SET is also the basic tapping process used in PET...

Next, you’ll learn the warmth, humour, and profound emotional healing power of Provocative Energy Techniques (PET), and how you can use this approach to help yourself and others!

You'll gain a practical and experiential introduction to the key processes and patterns used in PET. You'll also have an opportunity try it out with plenty of practical exercises in a non-threatening environment. You'll be astounded how PET can make core emotional change light and fun whilst still addressing deep issues.

"I cannot think of a more valuable workshop... The energy in the workshop was comprised of growth and healing for all involved." – Anne Wendt, USA

What is Energy Psychology and tapping?

Energy Psychology (EP) is an umbrella term for a range of innovative mind-body techniques which combine western and eastern healing systems into a potent means for resolving emotional pain. The most common techniques combine tapping on acupressure points with focusing on emotional problems and pain. EP techniques are relaxing, gentle, effective, ‘easy’ on the client and ‘easy’ on the therapist.

What is SET?

Simple Energy Techniques (SET) is a simple, user-friendly process of stimulating energy points on the body for emotional relief. Typically this involves tapping on the points, although rubbing or gently touching the points can also be used. While simple, SET can often dramatically relieve the stress of negative emotions and even shift core negative beliefs.

Many of the techniques used in SET are adapted from Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and other EP approaches, although SET has several elements that make it unique. More on SET

"I REALLY like your adapted SET method.. I can use SET throughout the day and blend it into what I'm doing." --- Dean Pistilli (Participant in Sydney Workshop)

What is PET?

Humour + Paradox + Energy Tapping = Rapid Change!

Provocative Energy Techniques (PET) is an unique advanced emotional healing approach which combines the power of energy tapping as used in EFT and SET with humorous and paradoxical communication and techniques drawn from Provocative Therapy, Ericksonian Therapy and Brief Strategic Therapy.

"Although I have been using EFT successfully with clients for several years, the fine-tuning and addition of the PET techniques have profoundly expanded my effectiveness ... I am amazed at how much more quickly and comfortably clients have been moving through their issues, pain and trauma."--- Lynda Malerstein, Hypnotherapist

PET elegantly addresses both mind and body. The provocative techniques cut through resistance, negative beliefs and other emotional barriers to get right to the heart of problems. The meridian tapping techniques and use of humour allows you to rapidly relieve clients’ fears, anxieties, trauma, hurt and other negative emotions. It’s a powerful combination. More on PET

“PET makes impossible things possible... The provocative style was like having a sauna bath, relieving, refreshing, just great, clear thoughts, limiting beliefs gone.”
--- Eva Maria Lundell MD, participant in Munich Workshop
