What is EBT?

Emotional Brain Training is a cutting-edge, proven method of neuroplasticity that rewires the brain for optimal emotional health.

The easy-to-use EBT skills switch off harmful circuits and activate healing circuits, transforming stress into joy on the spot. When used in a focused way, the EBT skills rewire the brain for lasting improvements in health and quality of life.

Developed by health psychologist Laurel Mellin, PhD with her collaborators at the University of California, San Francisco, the method is a major innovation in healthcare that can be life-changing.

The EBT tools are effective right from the start in improving relationships, personal control, and quality of life.

How do I get started?

Download our app and start using it! Learn the basics of EBT by dropping in for any of our LIVE daily 30-minute telephone sessions. A Certified EBT Provider will answer your questions and show you how to use the EBT skills for immediate stress relief with a burst of dopamine. Leave each session more confident in your ability to rewire your brain and with a surge of joy. EBT is both exciting and fun.

Using EBT tools to rewire an unwanted behavior such as overeating makes habit change easy, natural, and lasting.

How do I achieve lasting results?

After you have the basics down, your interest will turn to achieving lasting and profound results. Join one of our small weekly telephone groups with a dedicated EBT Provider and start rewiring. With each circuit you transform, be aware of how much control you have over the quality of your life. If you don't like a particular response or feeling, it's not a problem. Just rewire it!

EBT tools deliver immediate access to the brain's five resiliency pathways to clear negative moods and thoughts and create joy.

Why is EBT uniquely powerful?

EBT is based on the science that the brain's stress load predicts accellerated aging, chronic diseases, and mental health problems. EBT is the only method that is designed to reverse that stress load and raise the brain's set point so that you are exceptionally resilient, with a brain that automatically promotes optimal health and improved quality of life.

The tools of EBT help control one's mindset at work, easing stress and improving empathy, creativity, strategy, and communication.

Stress Eating Book Cover

Use EBT to lose weight and keep it off

One of the most common uses of EBT is for weight loss, as it is the only program that gives you the power to rewire the circuits that drive overeating and weight gain. The goal of EBT is not only lasting weight loss, but freedom from any stress-induced behaviors that replace overeating.

EBT is the only method that has shown lasting weight loss after treatment ends in peer-reviewed research. Use EBT to lose weight naturally, transition off weight loss drugs, or rewire your relationship with food. It works!

"EBT acts like a natural appetite suppressant. I am losing weight without diets or therapy. This method is magical." Susan F., Portland, Oregon
