FAQ's

  1. Q. What does MDT do?

    A. MDT allows the user to create, or use pre made, therapeutic or life changing 'programs'
    for the purpose of assisting healing or for Personal Development.

  2. Q. How does MDT work?

    A. My Desktop Therapist works on many levels of the conscious and subconscious mind. It allows the combination of multiple therapeutic modalities into one simple to use system.

    As a user you can experience subliminal or semi subliminal audio, text, images or video.

    You can also use the sessions module to trigger EFT sessions, play hypnosis audio's, remind you to do practical or physical exercises or activate a digital vision board. The system is so versatile it can display images and text as well as play audio and/or video. Your imagination is the only limitation.
  3. Q. Do subliminal messages really work?

    A. This has long been open to much debate. The original study conducted by James Vicary in 1957 that demonstrated that consumers would by more cola and popcorn was later found to be fraudulent. Many opponents to the effectiveness of subliminal's claimed this was evidence that they do not work.

    Since then further studies have been conducted which have proven that subliminal images can indeed influence the choice of a consumer, or the emotional state of an observer.

    In a BBC documentary on the power of the brain two twin sisters where given an experiment to see how reading words would affect their emotional state, and their behavior. It documented very conclusively how powerful being exposed to certain words can be.

    Perhaps the most extreme example of the power of subliminal influence can be found in the work of Darren Brown, the famous English mind magician. In one show he demonstrated how with the correct use of emotional anchoring and subliminal triggering he was able to get some normal people to rob an armored van.

    Volume 29 of The Journal of Counseling Psychology, reports a study by Dr. Kenneth Parker, a psychologist at Queens College, New York that demonstrated the effectiveness of subliminal's in an academic environment. He was able to have a test group achieve a significant improvement in academic performance and in information retention against a control group with the use of subliminal's before class.

    From a more therapy based perspective Dr. Lloyd H. Silverman, a research psychologist from New York, has carried out extensive studies into subliminal effects in different therapeutic applications. These included improving or aggravating symptoms in schizophrenics as well as improving the success rates in those quitting smoking.

    In March of 2007 BBC News reported on the work of a London team of researchers at the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience who had identified, through brain scans, that the brain does indeed respond to subliminal influences.

    Speaking on behalf of the team Dr Bahador Bahrami said: "What's interesting here is that your brain does log things that you aren't even aware of and can't ever become aware of. The brain is open to what's around it. So if there is 'spare capacity', in terms of attention, the brain will allocate that resource to subliminal activity."

    On their own subliminal messages can have little or no effect unless there is a natural desire in the person receiving them to be influenced by them. Much the same as hypnosis by itself can't get someone to do what they don't want to do.

    However, when used by a person with a desire for change, and when used in combination with other techniques as part of a complete program for change, subliminal's can play an important role.

  4. Q. What is the difference between subliminal's and semi-subliminal's?

    A. A true subliminal message is not registered by the conscious mind, even if it tries.

    A semi-subliminal message can be seen or heard by the conscious mind but only if it consciously tries to look at, or listen to it.

    I personally belief semi-subliminal learning to be more powerful. Speed readers have found that with proper training they are able to retain 80-90% comprehension of written material with little more than a brief glance at a page.

    One instrument used by speed readers in their training is a tachistoscope, a device originally used in World War II. Soldiers used it to learn to identify distance enemy aircraft; they would be shown images that became progressively faster and smaller.

  5. Q. Are subliminal's safe to use?

    A. Absolutely. In all the studies that have been conducted so far I have yet to come across any that report negative side effects (with the exception of the deliberate aggravation of symptoms in Schizophrenics by Dr Silverman). So long as the images and words you use are all positive there will certainly be no unwanted results.

  6. Q. How do I know you are not brainwashing me for some evil purpose?

    A. Apart from being highly illegal and unethical all messages can easily been seen if you choose. Simply edit the files to see exactly what is being displayed. You are free to delete, edit or add anything you like.

  7. Q. What can I use MDT for/to treat?

    A. Firstly I need to state MDT is not to be used as a 'treatment' or 'cure' for anything. It however can be used to assist a wide range of complaints and issues.

    The personal development guru, Anthony Robbins, has been a long time supporter of subliminal techniques, as well as NLP and Power Questions.

    Tiger Woods and Ruben Gonzalez (three time Olympian) are just two of many professional athletes that openly use subliminal's to enhance their game.

    Many highly successful businessmen and women also use subliminal's to give them an edge in business.

    And, as mentioned above research has demonstrated the ability of subliminal's messages and images to alter health related symptoms and emotional states.

    MDT comes with a built in program that is a general overall improvement for everyday living. It is however not targeted to anything specific.

    We are constantly working to build a range of specific programs to assist specific issues (everything from increased success to insomnia, stop smoking, weight loss, anxiety issues and certain fears and phobias). To see what is currently available please visit our 'Available Programs' page.
