How does QEC work? 

Very simply, the process involves you and I, as your QEC practitioner, working together to choose new thought patterns and behaviours to replace negative limiting ones. These are then installed in the subconscious mind using a specific body position.


You will be fully conscious at all times and the process is quick, easy and effortless.Once installed, the new beliefs are permanent and the change is profound.

Why was QEC developed?

Dr Melanie Salmon is a South African medical doctor with 40 years of experience in General Practice in the UK. She also practiced Gestalt Psychotheraphy alongside mainstream medicine for 15 years before developing QEC.

Almost daily she had encountered patients suffering from medical illnesses caused by stressful lives. The search for a better way became ever more urgent for her. She studied a range of new ‘Energy Medicine’ modalities that lead to actual, physical changes in the brain after she discovered of the ground-breaking work of Dr. Bruce Lipton, through his book “The Biology of Belief”. This book is already on my bookshelf, having been recommended previously by my teacher at the NO HANDS Massage Association.

What is QEC?

QEC is based in neuroscience and is a combination of:


  • Gestalt Coaching – to clarify issues

  • Focused Intention – to install new beliefs

  • Brain Gym – to facilitate learning at a deep level

  • Cardiac Coherence – to set the energy field appropriate for core learning

  • Neuroplasticity and Neurogenesis – to develop new neural pathways in the brain

  • Kinesiology – to test that the new beliefs have been successfully installed

“The limitations of mainstream medical practice were a constant frustration and it was clear that medications and lengthy talk therapies, while helpful at times, were largely ineffective in alleviating the cause of most stress.”

 - Dr. Melanie Salmon

How has QEC helped others?

"I wasn’t sure how QEC would work for me. I had previously gone through 10 years of private counselling and felt that I never quite got to the ‘root’ of my issues. I was advised that any time I was making any progression my self conscious would kick in and stop me which was doubly frustrating for me.  I now believe that this was due to the therapy we were using was top-down, and due to the trauma I had suffered wasn’t suited to me.


When I met Karen a lot of things were going on in my life. I instantly felt at ease with Karen, and opened up more than I have with anyone in a short space of time. In between our sessions an event happened that  triggered my PTSD. I was very anxious and on edge but Karen was very reassuring and her empathy and the work we carried out in that session that day was life changing.


I have struggled with low self esteem most of my life, and with just a few sessions with Karen I have noticed a dramatic change. This didn’t happen instantly but gradual little changes that I have noticed over time since our sessions ended. I recently started a new job and thanks to our sessions, it is the first time in my whole life that I have not been consumed with anxiety and self doubt. My manager even commented in how she feels as though I have worked in that job for a long time as I am so confident and self assured in my position. I believe this is down to the work we done in the QEC sessions!" - LG

'Since doing a few QEC sessions with Karen a few weeks ago. I've noticed a huge shift in my confidence and assertiveness when having difficult converstations/interactions with my exs family. I feel Ive been able to reach for support when needed, communicate more effectively with my mum and been better equipped in handling day to day parenting stuff. As an aside as well I’ve lost 9lbs, I feel fitter than I’ve ever been. My nails are grown and for first time in years I’ve not got a red bit under my chin (where I normally pick at when I am stressed), its finally healed. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Karen for further sessions if required but at this time I feel more in control, grateful and happy in myself than I have ever felt. I cant thank Karen and QEC enough.'   - MS
