Biography

Twenty-three years ago Morty Lefkoe made a series of discoveries that allowed him to help people make permanent changes in their emotions and behavior.

Morty discovered that beliefs were the core cause behind many problems such as procrastination, shyness, fear of public speaking, depression, eating disorders and a host of other problems.

He then created a process that has helped over 13,000 people in telephone sessions in 32 countries quickly, easily, and permanently eliminate the specific beliefs responsible for their behavioral and emotional problems.

Unlike most psychotherapies that focuses on helping our small “self” get better, and most enlightenment practices that focus on discovering we are really a non-dual “Self,” TLM combines the two and after beliefs are eradicated, people are led naturally into an altered state of consciousness in which they have the profound experience that anything is possible and that they have no limitations.

Morty called the process to eliminate beliefs and the other processes he created The Lefkoe Method and he went on to start The Lefkoe Institute. 

The mission of LI is to significantly improve the quality of life on the planet by having people recreate their lives and live as the unlimited possibilities they are. 

The Lefkoe Method is so consistent in its ability to help people change that researchers at the University of Arizona studied its impact on people with a fear of public speaking.

After analyzing the results of the study Dr. Lee Sechrest, Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona wrote: “Overall The Lefkoe Method is an effective, quick, and convenient procedure to eliminate the fear of speaking in public.”   Details about the study can be found in the July, 2006 issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy.

In January, 2007, after over two years of preparations, LI offered a series of DVDs that guaranteed viewers that they would totally eliminate or at least significantly reduce their fear of public speaking.  Information about this product can be found at www.undoityourself.com.

Morty has written a book about the Lefkoe Belief Process (LBP), Re-create Your Life: Transforming Yourself and Your World, which explains how the LBP works, how it is different from psychotherapy, its spiritual implications, and how its principles can be applied to parenting, health, business, and social change.  The LBP is the major process used to quickly and permanently eliminate beliefs.

 

Morty and his associates also have worked with over 10,000 employees at over fifty companies, including such firms as GM, Tenneco, Carter Hawley Hale, TRW, Lands' End, and almost half of the Bell telephone companies. Their work leads to vastly enhanced innovation and it facilitates needed change. He has conducted over 250 seminars for groups of Chief Executive Officers on "Limiting Beliefs: How to Identify and Eliminate Them."

He has written over 100 articles and columns for such publications as Fortune, Wall Street Journal, Advanced Management Journal, and the New York Times.  He has appeared on over 100 radio and TV shows, including Today, ABC World News Today, and Fox Cable News.  His work has been written about extensively in the New York Times and a number of other publications.

A member of the American Counseling Association, Morty has written articles describing the Lefkoe Method in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy The California Therapist (Sept-Oct 2001, Vol. 13, Issue 5), The Group Therapist Perspective (Oct-Nov. 2001), and the California Psychologist (December, 2001).

Morty is proud to be a founding member of the Transformational Leadership Council.
