Frequently Asked Questions

Question marks


What is Self-Rewiring?

It is an emotional therapy which uses a simple version of biofeedback to work. Please see our Introduction to Self-Rewiring for more information.

Is it safe to perform a therapy upon yourself?

We don’t believe that our therapy is any more dangerous than reading a self-help book found in any library or bookstore.

However, to practice our therapy you must agree to our terms and conditions, and if you have a serious mental disorder you must only perform it under the supervision of a licensed medical professional.

How much does Self-Rewiring cost?

Although our therapy cost a huge amount of money to develop, thanks to generous donations we can offer it at no cost.

Is Self-Rewiring a form of Applied Kinesiology?

No. Please see this page.

Is Self-Rewiring a kind of psychotherapy?

No. Please see this page.

Is Self-Rewiring based upon any philosophies or religious teachings?


Does Self-Rewiring use meridians, chakras, past-lives, hypnotism, or mysticism?



What is Self-Rewiring for?

It is designed to help you change your own personality, to help you grow up, and “grow out of” old habits, feelings, and desires.

Can I use Self-Rewiring whilst using other therapies?


However, if you are receiving treatments which affect the brain (e.g. antipsychotics, anti-anxiety medication, antidepressants, etc.) you must perform Self-Rewiring under the supervision of a licenced medical professional.

Can it help physical problems?

No. However, it may help emotional issues which surround those problems.

Are there any known side-effects?


Some people may feel upset or stressed when considering their emotional issues, but these are the normal effects of an emotional therapy, technically they are not side-effects.

How many sessions do I need?

It depends on how much of your personality you want to change, so it varies wildly from person to person.

Will Self-Rewiring still work if I was “born this way”?

Perhaps. See this page for more information.

What evidence is there that Self-Rewiring works?

Self-Rewiring only reached it’s present form in 2017, so it is far too early to expect published evidence on its effectiveness one way or the other.

However, the broad principles upon which Self-Rewiring is based can be easily found in published medical literature. Self-Rewiring is loosely based upon three things: (1) body language, and (2) simplified applications of EMDR and EFT, plus (3) visualisation techniques. These typically show very good success rates in published studies.

However, these methods are often used incorrectly in the research, they are often mixed up with crazy ideas, and are often used in an attempt to cure a physical problem (such as depression, which we believe is physical), so if you consult the research, please proceed with caution and use common sense.

Can Self-Rewiring help clinical depression?

Probably not. We believe clinical depression is a physical disorder.

Please see this page for more information.

Can Self-Rewiring help serious mental disorders?

Probably not, as things like psychosis, schizophrenia, hallucinations, the hearing of voices, serious paranoia, and so forth, probably have physical causes.

Self-Rewiring is more about changing your personality, and the sort of person you are, not about fixing malfunctioning systems or curing infections.

Please see this page for more information.
