What is EFT?
How does it work?
Why I use EFT with my clients!
EFT has been shown over and over to reduce anxiety and stress which is a major problem not only in the early days but also later in the healing process when dealing with ongoing issues such as co-parenting. I provide personalised videos for my clients to use in between sessions as and when they need it. When tapping first thing in the morning we reduce stress and anxiety which helps the day go much more smoothly which allows us to make more informed decisions. It helps us to be less reactive to situations we face that might otherwise leave us feeling worried or in a state of fear.
How to tap?
We start by identifying the issue and then giving it a rating on a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being it’s not bothering you, 10 being the worst it can get, focus only on one thing at a time.
We then begin tapping on the side of the hand using a setup statement that will acknowledge the problem, followed with an affirmation e.g. “Even though I feel this pain, I deeply and completely accept myself”. We repeat the setup statement 3 times before continuing to the rest of the points.
The tapping points, in sequence, as follows:
- Eyebrow (EB) – the beginning of the eyebrow, above the nose
- Side of the eye (SE) – on the side of the head in line with the eye
- Under the eye (UE) – the bone under the eye
- Under the nose (UN) – the point between the nose and upper lip
- Chin (CH) – halfway between lip and bottom of chin
- Collarbone (CB) – collarbone on the soft ‘sore point’
- Under the arm (UA) – under the armpit where the bra strap sits
- Top of the head (TOH) – found on the crown of the head
“It is scientifically proven, simple and effective technique that can help you to release stress, feel more centred, focused, and able to conquer any challenges that stand in your way”.
