Change can begin right now.
The Tools is a dynamic, results-oriented practice that defies the traditional approach to therapy. Instead of focusing on the past, this groundbreaking method aims to deliver relief from persistent problems and restore control — and hope — to users right away. Every day presents challenges — big and small — that the tools transform into opportunities to bring about bold and dramatic change in your life. These transformative techniques will teach you how to:
GET UNSTUCK: Master the things you are avoiding and live in forward motion.
CONTROL ANGER: Free yourself from out-of-control rage and never-ending grudges.
EXPRESS YOURSELF: Learn the secret of true confidence and find your authentic voice.
COMBAT ANXIETY: Stop obsessive worrying and negative thinking.
FIND DISCIPLINE: Activate willpower and make the most of every minute.
For years, Phil Stutz and Barry Michels taught these tools to an exclusive patient base of high-powered executives and creative types. Now their revolutionary practice is available to anyone interested in realizing the full range of their potential. Stutz and Michels want to make your life exceptional — in its resiliency, its productivity, and its experience of real happiness.
“This blew my mind more than anything else I’ve learned this year.” Dr. Mehmet Oz
“A rapid and streamlined method of self-improvement.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“An ‘open secret’ in Hollywood....[Stutz and Michels] have developed a program designed to access the creative power of the unconscious.” The New Yorker
“These tools are emotional game changers. They do nothing less than deliver you to your best and most powerful self.” Kathy Freston, author of Quantum Wellness
“Intensely gratifying.” Self
A groundbreaking book about personal growth that presents a uniquely effective set of five tools that bring about dynamic change — as seen on The Dr. Oz Show.
The Tools offers a solution to the biggest complaint patients have about therapy: the interminable wait for change to begin. The traditional therapeutic model sets its sights on the past, but Phil Stutz and Barry Michels employ an arsenal of techniques — “the tools” — that allow patients to use their problems as levers that access the power of the unconscious and propel them into action. Suddenly, through this transformative approach, obstacles become opportunities — to find courage, embrace discipline, develop self-expression, deepen creativity.
For years, Stutz and Michels taught these techniques to an exclusive patient base, but with The Tools, their revolutionary, empowering practice becomes available to every reader interested in realizing the full range of their potential. The authors’ goal is nothing less than for your life to become exceptional — exceptional in its resiliency, in its experience of real happiness, and in its understanding of the human spirit.
