The hotel opens onto a private stretch of beautiful Layan Beach, and one of its most attractive features is the luxury spa that offers the perfect setting for rejuvenating wellness and pampering relaxation. It is this stunning spa where Paul Emery has been helping with the Balance and Wellness Programme, specialising in healing and relaxing.
Paul has helped people from all walks of life, from doctors to rock stars, including The Scissor Sisters and Sir Michael Parkinson, since 2002. Originally from Bristol in the UK, he has become worldly known as the “Miracle Therapist”.
Paul is popular for his practitioner courses, and focuses on how to heal pains, aches, fears and anxieties. He created QEPR (Quantum Emotional & Physical Release), which is an award–winning therapy course and its innovative techniques have helped thousands of people, from soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to stressed–out CEO’s and mothers, to those with a fear of public speaking. A consultation could help with emotional problems, weight loss, as well as test for food sensitivities/allergies, which many people don’t realise they have.
Paul developed QEPR after years of research and experience. It was his own eclectic modality, mostly founded on the ground-breaking psychological techniques of Thought Field Therapy (TFT), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) plus Paul’s own style, discoveries and innovations.
Paul also demonstrates some of his basic, yet most effective life-changing tools that he incorporates into QEPR. Tools that you can quickly and easily self-apply at any time, any place for a life-time of continued emotional support and stability.
Paul’s life has certainly been interesting. He spent over six years as a resident therapist at the multi-award-winning destination spa, Chiva Som International Health Resort. He successfully learned the tools of the trade before he then decided to move to Bangkok where he is currently based. He quickly got used to visiting other locations around the world and developed a hefty client list in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.
In addition to appearing on various television programmes, his extensive list of publications that he has appeared in, including Marie Claire, Fox News, Vogue, Financial Times, Sunday Independent, Women’s Health, Harper’s Bazaar as well as working at some of the world’s top resorts from Thailand to Turkey, is a reflection of his inspiring success.
His success is in no way undeserving though, as Paul is constantly promoting and working on his brand. He also speaks to clients through Skype, making himself reachable all around the world.
Paul’s inspiration for working in the health and wellness sector came from his childhood fear of public speaking and anxiety issues.
When he was just 14 years old, he was diagnosed with a chronic ‘social phobia’. Paul became interested in psychology and after a few decades and a multitude of life changing experiences Paul decided to take his passion seriously and trained in Counselling.
He started studying courses, including ‘Talk Therapy’ at the University West of England in Bristol, UK where he qualified as a counsellor. He tried to understand not why, but how problems would arise and he found himself learning the best parts of each therapist he would speak to. Paul studied with the foremost in the field of self-development and psychology from Dr Richard Bandler to Dr Roger Callahan.
Soon enough he had become a full-time practitioner.
On one of Paul’s visits to the US, he met with Dr Roger Callahan who invented the “tapping” method, which is known to “cure phobias, cravings and insomnia”. It focuses on one specific feeling and taps four points on the body (hand, wrist, chest and underneath the nose) firmly in sequence “as recommended” approximately eight times as indicated for each person’s problem.
Paul has been able to cure headaches, body aches and anxieties just by performing this process and has helped many clients all around the world.
Initially the therapy didn’t help Paul himself, but he still went on to study the method enabling him to diagnose specific Meridian blockages and further enhance his success.
After undergoing some methods himself, it showed that a lot of bad toxins, preservatives, shampoos and chemicals were contributing to his condition He then eradicated all these from his daily life, started to wash his own clothes in organic shampoo, or oil, limited and controlled his diet and finally found his condition improving.
These new changes, combined with the tapping method were starting to help with his anxieties. He has now been free of his condition for the last five years.
When he first discovered what was causing his phobia, he completely eradicated all toxins and would only eat plain foods such as chicken, fish and vegetables cutting out rice, peppers, condiments and red meat from his diet. However, now he allows himself to eat in moderation, but continues to be strict with himself prior to big events, such as TV interviews and talks.
His ability to appear and talk live on television is a testament to the techniques he has studied and carried out himself. In the last few years, he has released a book called The Winning Way which is number eight on Amazon and won the Holistic Treatment of the Year 2010 award, as well as casually popping to Hollywood to pick up another award.
Paul comes back to Anantara Phuket every few months, where he helps out regular and new clients.
