What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a therapeutic technique which uses manual ‘Tapping’ by our fingers on various spots on the face and upper body to help bring about positive, emotional change. EFT has amazing results by rapidly and safely freeing negative emotions which maybe attached to past and present events.
What is the theory behind EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) brings together both Ancient Eastern wisdom and modern Western philosophies, by utilising the Chinese meridian energy system. EFT is often described as ‘emotional acupuncture’ without the needles. EFT is based on the assumption that we are all configurations of energy, therefore, when we experience negative emotions they are caused by a disruption in our energy systems. EFT uses tapping on key points on the body’s energy meridians while thinking and/or vocalising a specific issue or emotion to rebalance the energy.
How does it work?
By shifting energy, we can change the way our brains process information about a particular issue, therefore, by tapping while tuned in to the issue is similar to rewiring or re-routing the brain's conditioned negative response. It can change both feelings and thinking.
Why does EFT work so well?
Our behaviour and thoughts are determined by our emotions. Often, no matter how hard we try to rationalise past and present events we are still caught in the emotion. EFT allows us to reduce and even eliminate the trapped emotion, thereby allowing us to move forward and become free of the negative emotion. By changing and transforming those old emotions, EFT provides clarity and perspective, which, in turn transforms both future thoughts and behaviours into something much more empowering than experienced before.
What can EFT be used for?
EFT can be used alongside Hypnotherapy/Hypnosis and NLP for all of the treatments we offer or as a ‘stand alone’ treatment itself. EFT can be used for weight loss and smoking to help shift any cravings or negative beliefs. EFT can be used to reduce fear, anxiety or compulsions connected to habits and addictions, it can also be used to heal past trauma, along with a host of other conditions, the list is endless.
Do you always use EFT during treatments?
No, we only use EFT with clients who feel comfortable with the technique and where we think it would be beneficial. The sessions are tailored for each client so it maybe more suitable for one client but not another and depending on what is being treated during the session.
