What Is EFT?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a very simple and very efficient technique of removing the emotions which accompany experiences, and therefore release you from your fears and phobias. Elsewhere on this website there is a detailed explanation of how EFT works and how it is used however here is a short introduction to the technique.

For many thousands of years we have known that the body has many meridian points. Acupuncturists have a detailed knowledge of where these points are, and which part of the body they relate to, for causing relief to various issues in the body. EFT uses nine of these points but there is no use of needles; you would be shown simply how to tap on these points. There are seven points on the head and two points on the upper body.

  How It Works   



Professor Tony Stuart on EFT

This Youtube video is an excerpt from a 2014 BBC West Midlands TV programme introduced with reference to people with depression or psychosis, but EFT is used by thousands of ordinary people with, perhaps, only a couple of emotional issues, fears or phobias and even people with pain and health problems. 





How My EFT Sessions Work

During a session with me we will discuss the issue or issues you have. We can refer to our previous example of a fear of flying. If you had an unpleasant experience and you remember this well, I will guide you into giving me certain key words or terms. For example: the plane seemed to jump or drop, I felt nausea, I felt sick to my stomach, I thought I was going to die, my life flashed before me, I was frightened out of my wits et cetera.

From our conversation I will determine, and we would agree upon, several key phrases. For example, “the plane seemed to jump”, “I thought I was going to die”, “I was frightened out of my wits”. We then use these phrases whilst tapping on the 11 points. This works as follows:

I will ask you to think about the experience that you had and I will ask you to give the experience a number between 1 and 10.  Number 10 would indicate a really strong fear, while number 1 would indicate only a minor fear. We will use this number to gauge our progress through the session.

So, let us assume that your fear is rated at 8. I will guide you to start tapping on one of the points situated at the top of your head and at the same time, I will ask you to say something like, “I thought I was going to die.” We will continue through the rest of the points on your head and upper body using the same statement. I shall then ask you to think about flying, and how you feel about it, and I shall then ask you to rate the fear that you have again using the same scale. In most cases, the fear will have dropped substantially. If it is still there, we can tap again with the same or with different statements, but the aim is to reduce the fear to 1 or a 0 within only a few rounds of tapping.

In general, the entire process from our discussion to a successful conclusion will last only about an hour. If they are deep-seated issues we can, of course, take longer to address them. If you need EFT in Bedfordshire please contact me, ideally by phone.
