The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

The Emotional Freedom Technique is used by millions worldwide to clear emotional stress and upset that hinders our ability to live with wellness and calm. The technique has been clinically shown to reduce depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, phobias, cravings and negative emotions such as anger, sadness, grief, fear, hurt and guilt. By using the EFT we work to create a sense of wellbeing and contentment.

What is Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T)?

Like Acupuncture without the needles! E.F.T. works on the principle that negative emotions are caused by a disturbance in our energy system. By tapping on acupuncture points and saying certain phrases out loud, we are able to effectively ‘rewire’ our energy system. The result is a feeling of both letting go, peace and calm as the negative emotions dissipate.

EFT and similar techniques are often discussed under the umbrella term "energy psychology".

What does an E.F.T. session involve?

During a typical EFT session, the person will focus on a specific issue while tapping on "end points of the body's energy meridians".

The session consists of the client isolating a specific emotion or feeling such as 'I dont feel confident at work'...rating the emotional intensity of this feeling with Subjective Units of Distress Scale (SUDS out of 10), and tapping through specific points of the body while repeating statements. This process is repeated until the SUDS level has reduced and a positive alternative has been chosen and established.

How does EFT therapy help?

In life we all have 'learned emotions' from everything we have experienced. Past events can effect us by leaving 'echos' playing in the background and while consciously we may not be aware of these they can still affect every emotion we have today.These negative emotions affect the flow of our energy and can create blocks. EFT allows us to work through these blocks, and shift them out of the body. EFT is an effective, elegant and kind way of releasing us from our past so that we are able to fully embrace our positive future.

How many EFT therapy sessions will I need?

Everyone is different, we all have our own core beliefs and although they can be traced back generally to a few main belief structures, our unique layers of emotion will guide the requirement.Together we will work through these at the correct pace for you.

Clients will feel benefit from this powerful technique after one session.
