EFT Tapping offers you tangible results in the briefest of time. We can easily work together over Zoom. Plus I’ll teach you how to use this in your everyday life, between sessions. It can, quite literally, be amazing.
EFT stands for ‘Emotional Freedom Technique’ and it is often explained as a form of energy psychology. Some people like to think of it as acupuncture without the needles.
It involves applying very gentle tapping (using your fingers) to points located on the invisible energy channels, the meridians that run throughout the body.
The points that we tap on are mainly on the head and hands (so tapping is done fully dressed, sitting in a chair) so you can tap on yourself with my guidance. It is a very easy and non-intrusive technique that works brilliantly over Zoom.
The idea behind tapping is that it targets the underlying cause of the problem. The energetic disturbance that lies below the visible emotional, behavioural and physical problems. This means that the areas in life where tapping can be used are almost unlimited.
Tapping is used for anxiety, stress, emotional issues, fear, phobias, weight loss, allergies, addictions and so many other issues. In fact it can be used for just about anything and everything. You don’t even need to know how it works for it to work. Although I always offer you a clear understanding of it.
The evidence of it working will be revealed to you as we tap. You will feel the difference that it makes, literally as we do it. You’ll have found a free, portable, personal solution for everyday life.
What tapping does is to soothe your nervous system, it is a bridge in the gap between your body and your mind. When you feel something in your body, a feeling, a thought or a belief, we tune into it, tap and feel it shift. The energy that goes with that thought or feeling gets discharged or its intensity will have noticeably dropped. We simply keep going until it clears.
Some people ask if it is simply a distraction technique but research has proved that it is not. EasyJet have been using it in their ‘fear of flying’ programs.
There is a great deal of scientific research outlining the power of tapping. It is beginning to be used in schools and in the armed forces. EFT Tapping is also being used to relieve and reduce experiences of trauma and PSTD in charity relief programmes, working with war refugees and natural disaster survivors.
Sometimes you will come to me with a very straightforward issue and we will tap through it very quickly and it will feel like it just disappeared. Other times it works like peeling away the layers of an onion. We clear the surface issue and then check what is left to still clear. We keep doing that until it is resolved.
Used in a therapeutic or coaching context, EFT tapping can seem almost magical but it is not magic. Of all of the techniques I use with clients, this is the one where people most often ask, ‘Can it really be this easy?’
When used correctly EFT Tapping can be fantastic for releasing negative emotions and for changing unhelpful beliefs. It’s fast and powerful yet comfortable.
Plus there are ways to use it where you can be distanced from the subject matter, from a negative or upsetting reliving of events, yet you can still get very powerful results. So this can be a very safe and gentle way to work
EFT tapping is brilliant as a DIY technique. Because once you grasp it, you can use it by yourself at any time, on any occasion, for any feeling or thought that you want to address. You can tap any time, any place, even without anyone noticing. It totally empowers you.
