Core Belief Engineering


CORE BELIEF ENGINEERING is a practical psychotherapy that works with your subconscious beliefs by accessing and then transforming the issues and the parts of yourself that require recognition and resolution.


Your Core Belief Engineering Advisor is Renée Brown

Core Belief Engineering (tm) (CBE) is a unique proven method of psychotherapy at its best. It represents a psychotherapeutic system of assessing the subconscious levels through the conscious mind and helps to resolve various inner conflicts that originate in our subconscious.

The name Core Belief Engineering (tm) reflects the goal of therapy, to find and re-engineer outdated core beliefs and to find the core self where new beliefs can be introduced and accepted, the beliefs that are in tune with what you want to achieve in your life.

The process rediscovers, expands and integrates the strengths and abilities of your subconscious mind with your conscious self.

This healing art has a great potential in addressing a variety of disorders and dysfunctions in the inner self.

Our subconscious mind is influenced at an early age by parents, teachers, and society etc. some of which may be out of tune with your real self, holding different beliefs and thus creating inner conflicts, feelings of fear, anger, guilt etc. They also filter our perception effecting how we see ourselves, others and our life. The inner conflicts can be so severe that they may result in depression, withdrawal and even physical disorders.

Many people are under the impression that unwanted patterns of behavior or emotional reactions are a part of their personality and cannot be changed.

That is not true, many inner conflicts can be successfully resolved through Core Belief Engineering (tm).

The result of CBE therapy can profoundly change your beliefs and attitudes which shape and motivate your feelings and actions. There is an improved communication between the conscious and subconscious mind and an overall feeling of peace and inner contentment.

Core Belief Engineering (tm) is very effective and does not take long to produce results. Many emotional and mental problems can be resolved in just a few hours of therapy, however it may take longer to address the more deep-seated issues. CBE can effectively help to clear the emotional elements of a physical illness, thus making the healing process more obvious and effective. It can be a remarkable tool to develop your existing or unknown talents and strengths.

The beauty of this unique therapy is that the sessions can be integrated with many other healing arts. Therapy can be performed in conjunction with physical therapy, naturopathic medicine, aromatherapy, reflexology etc.

Questions and Answers

Q: What is Core Belief Engineering ?

A: Core Belief Engineering is an effective psychotherapy process enabling a person to make change in their life. It is a novel and copyrighted method of increasing personal well being, self-love and awareness, to enhance conscious choice and effectiveness. Elly Roselle founded Core Belief Engineering and the process has been taught and practiced throughout the U.S. and Canada since 1984. It has consistently provided gentle yet powerful and effective results in a minimal time for making major and minor changes.

Q: What creates Conflict?

A: The subconscious mind is a multiplicity of functions and parts. Often these parts hold dissimilar or different beliefs that manifest as some form of internal disharmony or conflict, resulting in feelings of guilt, fear, hesitation, anger, compulsions, indecision, withdrawal, depression and physical problems. These conflicts with the present can be resolved since the conscious mind does exercise free choice and free will in making changes at the subconscious level. Total efficiency results when there is unfettered communication and rapport with the subconscious physical, emotional, mental, spiritual levels.

Q: How does Core Belief Engineering Help?

A: The Core Belief Engineering processes are gentle, flexible and create lasting attitudinal changes enabling you to alter, redesign, realign the beliefs that motivate your actions, feelings and choices. Decidedly to your advantage is the speed of the process. Many emotional and mental problems resolve within several hours of therapy, although with certain deep-seated issues, results can take longer.

Q: How is Core Belief Engineering Different?

A: Everything you do, think or feel is based on your belief systems. Many self-help approaches make the mistake of trying to solve the problem from within the problem. For example, if you have trouble speaking in front of groups, the problem of sweaty hands and shaking knees is tackled - but there is no change to the underlying belief that is responsible for the automatic reaction to the situation.

A Quick Overview

The work involves an initial interview where we decide what you want to accomplish.

  • We form a contract and begin a process to solve the problem.
  • We take as long as needed to achieve the contract.
  • It averages between three and six hours, but has been known to take longer.
  • This is transformational work. The time varies with each person and each issue.
  • The change cannot be forced. Your own subconscious determines how long is needed for the change to be complete.
  • When we finish you will feel different -- sometimes elated and/or perhaps, a bit tired--and a good sleep or a good walk will help to integrate the work you have done.
  • One or more follow-up sessions will be necessary to reinforce the changes you have been experiencing. Frequency of sessions may be between two and eight weeks apart, since the changes need to be integrated into your everyday life.
  • After your process we will arrange an evaluation session to review what has been happening, what changes you have noticed, how have you felt when faced with previously triggering situations, etc?
  • You should be noticing changes right away or during the first few days.

How Does the Process Work?

  • After we establish the contract we begin a guided internal communication between your conscious mind and the part of your subconscious mind that can aid you in solving the problem.
  • We find out the underlying core belief structures that are holding the patterns in place and go to the energy level in yourself where you can choose to change and restructure the beliefs at the emotional and mental levels.
  • Since we take the time necessary for the changes to happen naturally, you are in charge of how the changes are re-engineered and which new beliefs are accepted.

Understanding the Core Belief Engineering Process

Core Belief Engineering is based on understanding that the subconscious is not a singular entity but is comprised of multiple parts. C.B.E. finds it effective to look at the self as made up of parts on a physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual level. The Beliefs held by a part of us creates the reality we experience.

For example, think of the word "camping" what comes to your mind? Times of pleasant experiences outdoors or thoughts of hungry mosquito's, damp bedding, cooking in the rain? The word is the same - The internally held beliefs trigger the emotions, which in turn motivate behavior. Your reaction to any perceived event, person or situation is from a part of yourself designed to respond to that event.

Take driving a car...have you ever reached your destination and realized you were unaware of the actual driving? Did you experience that today? The question is, who did the driving? Your driving part, designed to respond to that event. Have you ever thought to your self, part of me wants to go to the movies and part of me wants to finish this report then there's another part of me that would just like to go to bed. Did you have a part this morning that wanted to sleep in?

Core Belief Engineering: - Philosophy of Healing

Beliefs: you are what you believe...beliefs are the blue print of what we hold to be true about ourselves and the world. Our reality is based on what we believe. Many beliefs are held below the level of consciousness and were installed at an early age when we were trying to make sense/fit in to a world we could not understand rationally. For example, when a toddler hears their parents argue they cannot understand the words or content, they're only aware of how their body feels, comfortable or uncomfortable at an emotional level. Many of the blocks, fears, indecisions, behaviors, inner conflicts we hold as adults are a result of old outdated beliefs and concepts. As we grow and evolve we often adopt different values and beliefs. Inner conflict arrives when parts of us are still holding on to the old beliefs. If as a child the only way you could feel safe when your parents argued was to fade into the background, to be quiet, not be seen ... Can you imagine how this belief that kept you safe as a child may manifest itself in your adult life. Symptoms may vary from an inability to speak up for yourself, becoming immobilized when someone confronts or shouts at you, remaining unsuccessful or sabotaging any success you achieve so as not to attract attention.

For example: a woman had begun to achieve success as a lawyer, her life' s dream! However, in her moment to shine in the courtroom, she froze. The internal belief? "If I'm seen I'll be hurt." Another example: a salesman who was unable to ask for the order or referrals. When he was just a little guy he asked his mom to please not hug him in front of his friends. Unfortunately, this child was never hugged by his mother again. This man's benefit for this undesirable behavior in not asking for the order? His deeply held belief that "if I ask for what I want I will be punished and hurt". Core belief engineering pinpoints what beliefs and what part or parts are keeping the person stuck, then heals and releases that part to re-join the conscious mind!

The good news is that all parts of us want to protect, love and benefit us. No matter how much trouble they are causing us. The ssumption is that each part also knows its opposite. For example, The part that feels abandoned, untrusting, angry also knows inclusion, trust and peace.

Core Belief Engineering, is an effective process enabling a person to make change in their life. Permanent change. Change in behavior, emotional responses instead of reactions, thinking patterns, undesirable symptoms and generally increases confidence in dealing with any situation you may encounter.

Common feed back from clients is the ability to stay calm in previously triggering situations. Inner peace happens when you re- connect with your true self. Better decisions, knowing what's best for you. Let's face it, it is difficult to make sound decisions from a place of fear or anxiety or anger or when your are troubled.

Physical Symptoms

Are there emotional underpinnings to your physical problems?

Just as naturopaths and other healers detoxify the body, Core Belief Engineering has a method to psychologically and emotionally detoxify the mind. The subconscious runs the body; we don't have to tell our hearts to beat for instance. Core Belief Engineering looks at the causes rather than just the symptoms; We view the mind as an interconnected system at different levels and layers.

Here are some of the responses from people at a Wellness Center for Physical Pain. Question: what do you gain from your illness?

  • Don't have to go to work.
  • Slows me down.
  • Get more rest.
  • Receive extra attention.
  • Don't have to achieve.
  • Compassion from others.
  • Don't have to address my real fears.
  • Excuse for not doing.
  • Less responsibility.
  • It's familiar.
  • An excuse to ask for love and attention .

We have often found that emotional pain and or anger when not expressed is often stored in the body. A woman had a boil on her behind for seven years, she had it lacerated, she tried ointments, the boil would not clear. Two days after a process on her anger part the boil disappeared. Isn't the mind brilliant, let's just sit on our anger!

Core belief engineering re-builds the system, with your own original Energy, Strength and Love.

How Does Core Belief Engineering Work?

Many of us think we are stuck with unwanted patterns and behaviors - that they are just us, part of our personality. The beauty of Core Belief Engineering is that you learn such beliefs and behaviors are not the sum total of you.

The process is gentle and adapts to each individual's personality. Trauma does not have to be re-experienced. You are fully conscious during the entire process.

You begin with a contract as to what you want to accomplish. Your wish list. i.e :- confidence, respect for yourself, self-trust, feelings of self-worth and self-acceptance, creativity, success, decisiveness, happy, free.. .

You choose.

We then begin a guided internal communication between your conscious mind and the part of your subconscious mind that can aid you in solving the problem. A part will respond when spoken to directly. Each part has its own belief system, feelings, intent, benefits, imagery, history, age, a job to do, talents, sense of identity and ability to manifest reality. Through a line of gentle questioning we discover the beliefs and decisions holding the problem in place. We clear the part of beliefs that belong to others i.e. parents/teachers/society. Any hurt, pain, guilt, anger..... from deep within, bringing the person back to a time before they took on others beliefs and influence and made decisions based on those beliefs. We find the core self, this is the point where new beliefs are easily accepted to match what you want in your life today. The process goes further to rediscover, expand and integrate the talents, strengths and abilities in this part of you and rebonds it with your conscious self. This part is now working with you to help you create what you want in your life, Today!

Core belief engineering sessions can last anywhere from 3 to 6 hours. Most clients need two to 3 sessions. The sessions are held a month to 6 weeks apart. Clients with deeper issues may require perhaps 6 to 8 Sessions.


If you find yourself stuck or unable to manifest what you want in your life or you want to change a behavior or reaction or other undesirable symptom. If you hear yourself say any of these words. For example, I shouldn't, can't, won't, never, always, limiting words or black and white thinking. If you worry. For example, but what if, but what if, when trying to make a decision. If you sometimes feel like a victim. For example, I can' t help it, it's not my fault, look what they are doing to me. Generally when you hear something other than clear conscious choice and action, then you could benefit from a core Belief engineering process.

If you want to increase trust in yourself, to experience laughter and pleasure from everyday experiences, to increase personal power and confidence, to release the love from deep within where spirituality can soar, to live consciously and happily ... then
