About Tipi emotional regulation


Everyone has the capacity to permanently break through the emotions
that are holding them back from being who they want to be

We all go through life searching for something special – friendship, love, peace of mind, confidence, a healthy life, ambitions, and happiness are just a few of those things that we seek. However, there are always barriers that get in the way of our hopes, dreams, and aspirations – whether it’s the daily stress we live through, the anxieties we face, the frustration we experience, the fears that scare us, or the health problems that stop us from living the life we want to lead. The list is endless and to face it all, we turn to activities like meditation, yoga, and other methods to help. Sometimes they help in providing relief from our physical and emotional pain but it’s mostly always temporary. The barriers keep persisting.

Recognise this in the people you help professionally or even yourself? It doesn’t need to be this way.

Through his research, Luc Nicon has studied and brought to light a natural physiological capacity to regulate emotions, showing us that, one emotion at a time, we can permanently take control of the emotional difficulties that prevent us from being our true selves. He calls this “Tipi emotional regulation“. It’s a totally natural process that any of us, at any age, can do by ourselves.

Over the last one and a half decade, hundreds of thousands of people have experienced breakthroughs in their life by regulating their emotions. Their emotional, behavioral or physical discomfort has disappeared and they’ve started to build their lives again – in the way they wanted.


The principle behind Tipi emotional regulation

All unpleasant emotions have a root cause – something that happened, an experience that you lived through, a moment that changed everything. When you pinpoint that situation and relive it through an emotional lens – as a sensory experience rather than a rational memory, you end up getting to the root of whatever is causing that emotion. That, right there, is where change happens – if you know what caused your pain, you can let go of it.  That is the principle behind Tipi emotional regulation.

Grounded in research

Over a 4 year period from 2003 to 2007, Luc Nicon, the founder of emotional regulation, conducted a study* on 278 people who were suffering emotionally. The results? They showed something extraordinary:

  • Out of the 278 people living with phobias, anxiety, inhibitions, depression, and irritability – only 7 failed to overcome the emotional difficulties that were holding them back.
  • Of the ones who did overcome their emotional difficulties – 79% regulated their emotions in one session, and the rest rarely needed more than 2 sessions to achieve the same result.

Since that study was first published, over 3,500 qualified professionals (doctors, psychologists, coaches, therapists, and teachers) have been trained to deliver these results every single day.

They’ve helped children, teenagers, and adults to live their lives to the fullest. Most importantly, they’ve taught all of them how to regulate their own emotions. Imagine all those children growing up to fulfill their fullest potential?

The extraordinary power to break through the barriers holding you back is literally within you.

Using Tipi emotional regulation in daily life

Whether you are a child or a 100-year-old – emotional regulation is simple to learn and once you get started, you’ll see you have the power to do this by yourself. If you feel you need professional help, you can find a professional in our directory and book a session with one of the many qualified professionals working in several countries and languages. Certain qualified professionals are also trained to make the connection between your emotions and physical and behavioral disorders and help you regulate them.

Tipi emotional regulation around the world

We want everyone in the world to have access to this power, and to do that, we are collaborating with many organisations. For example, the Tipi Association is currently establishing partnerships with international health organisations to teach people around the world how to use their capacity for emotional regulation. A technique that is now recognised as particularly effective in health and prevention programmes.  If you would like to collaborate with us please do get in touch through the contact page.

Using Tipi emotional regulation for helping people to regulate their emotional difficulties

For emotional and behavioral difficulties that arise in daily life, our trained Tipi professionals provide sessions (usually less than 30 minutes and can be done by phone or online through Skype, Zoom etc).

The aim of these sessions is so that the people you are helping can achieve a full breakthrough past the emotion that was inhibiting their life. As a guide, when the emotional difficulty is very precise (such as a phobia, anxiety about an event such as an exam, and so on) one 30 minute session will make the difference they need. In some cases, you may need to provide a second session. By the end of it, they will experience a profound sense of relief.

Using Tipi emotional regulation for psychosomatic or behavioral difficulties

Even though our emotions may not always be the source of physical or behavioural disorders, they may aggravate the symptoms. So, as part of our work at Tipi Association, we have ensured that certain qualified professionals are also trained to make the connection between emotions and physical and behavioral disorders and help people regulate these emotions.

What kind of conditions can you help people with?

Psychosomatic reactions
Our emotions cause biological stress. This stress, if it is intense or repetitive, attacks the most vulnerable parts of our body. Under these conditions, the body will deteriorate for as long as the emotion persists. To help our body repair itself, we need to regulate the emotional stress.

Here are just some of the psychosomatic disorders that emotional regulation can improve:

  • pain (headaches, migraines, aches, back pain, stomach pain, slow post-injury recovery,  fibromyalgia etc.)
  • skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis, herpes, stye, hives, fungal infections, mouth ulcers, vitiligo, etc.)
  • allergic disorders (food, pollen, perfume, dust, cats, etc.)
  • chronic fatigue
  • sleep disorders and insomnia
  • attention deficit disorders and hyperactivity
  • weight disorders
  • menstrual disorders (painful periods, heavy menstrual bleeding, menstrual irregularities, etc.)
  • sexual disorders
  • reproductive disorders
  • visual impairment
  • chronic diseases (asthma, bronchitis, angina, cystitis, etc.)
  • blood pressure disorders (hypotension or hypertension)
  • digestive disorders (constipation, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, etc.)

Recurring and stereotyped behaviors

So as not to suffer from certain conscious and subconscious emotional disorders we substitute them with other behaviours – addictions, compulsive reactions, controlling behavior, avoidance – and all of these instantaneously bypass the painful emotions. We can neutralise these substitution behaviors by identifying the emotional impulse that they seek to bypass and regulating that emotion. Once the emotion is regulated, there is no need to revert to the substitution behavior.

  • addictions (alcohol, cigarettes, social media, compulsively checking phones, video games, binge watching tv programmes, sugar, work, extreme sports, etc.)
  • obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • stuttering
  • repetitive and stereotyped behaviours (constantly looking at yourself in the mirror, twisting your hair, always tidying your things in the same place, constantly looking at the time, making lists, etc.)
  • eating disorders
  • repeated panic attacks
  • hypochondria
  • procrastination
  • hoarding
  • sleeping disorders
  • amnesia and recurring forgetfulness
  • learning difficulties (dyspraxia, dyslexia, etc.)
