Emotional Freedom Technique – EFT

Picture of Heart with Water DropletsIf you feel that you’re sometimes ruled by your emotions and thoughts with little control over them, or if you constantly replay things in your mind then Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a wonderfully simple way to restore calm and serenity.

Emotional Freedom Technique can be used for a wide variety of issues – emotional, mental and physical. Gary Craig, who developed EFT, says ‘Try it on anything’!

Often we carry unresolved emotion, sometimes below our conscious awareness, about things that have happened to us. I guide you in finding and releasing these emotions enabling you to transform how you think, feel and see yourself in the present and in the future. 

Lightly tapping with the fingertips on the face, upper chest and hands on meridian points used in acupuncture, while talking about and gently tuning into an issue brings up and clears any related negative emotions, thoughts and beliefs. EFT promotes healing, self-acceptance and a more positive self-image.

I provide a positive and supportive environment for you to explore and let go of things that distress you and keep you stuck. Anything that we discuss remains confidential.

Emotional Freedom Technique Releases You from the Grip of Negative Feelings

Regular use of EFT frees us from the grip of negative feelings like fear, anger, sadness, depression, worry, grief, shame, resentment and allows us to have more of the positive feelings of contentment, joy, happiness, appreciation, gratitude and love.

EFT can help us get safely to the root cause of a recurrent problem and release it with greater acceptance and understanding of ourselves and others.

Once fully cleared, the issue is gone forever bringing about permanent change. If enough similar issues are cleared, especially at their root cause, then a whole raft of related problems can simply dissolve.

Improve Your Health

It is just as effective for health challenges. Many illnesses and diseases have an emotional / psychological element to them. Resolving any underlying energetic or emotional contributors to ill health assists physical healing.

We know that negative emotions and stress lower our immunity. EFT clears the negative emotions and affirms positive emotions that strengthen our immunity, health and self-image.

Gary Craig, the creator of EFT, said that ‘all negative emotion stems from a disturbance in the body’s energy system’.

The Tapping Technique – Acupuncture without the Needles!

Tapping on points on the body’s energy meridians while focusing on a problem or issue helps to restore the body’s flow of chi or life force energy and to release any underlying energetic disturbance. This is the same principle that Chinese medicine has worked on for thousands of years. It is often thought of as an emotional form of acupuncture but no needles are needed! 

The points used are generally the end points of the meridians on the face, upper chest and hands. Lightly tapping with the fingertips stimulates these points and activates the whole meridian to bring it back into balance.

‘Energy Psychology’

EFT is one of a number of ‘Energy Psychology’ techniques that combine the best of  eastern wisdom, particularly an understanding of the energy meridians, and modern psychology often with amazing results.

Elements of psychology and neuro-linguistic programming such as systematic desensitisation, cognitive reprocessing, reframing, self-concept improvement using statements of intentional self-acceptance and relaxation triggering have been blended into EFT.

Simple yet Powerful!

Emotional Freedom Technique is very simple to do and easy to learn. It can be used at home or at work to deal with the stresses of daily life, as well as for more complex issues. It often gives rapid relief and can work when nothing else does! It works even if you don’t believe it works so why not give it a go?
