EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a strange looking tapping technique where you tap on specific points on the face and upper body.  It has been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues, including stress and emotional disorders such as

  • fear

  • anxiety

  • guilt

  • shame

  • anger

  • frustration

  • grief

  • limiting beliefs

Tapping therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology.  EFT is an emotional version of acupuncture, but without the needles!  Instead, specific meridians are stimulated by tapping on them with our fingertips. Tapping with the fingertips on specific meridian endpoints of the body, while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations, helps to calm the nervous system, rewire the brain to respond in a healthier way, and restore the body’s balance of energy.  By doing this, the negative emotion disappears as well.

EFT is simple and painless.  It can be learned by anyone, and you can apply it to yourself whenever you want, wherever you are.  It can be used with a specific emotional intent towards your own unique life challenges and experiences.  Most importantly, it gives you the power to heal yourself naturally and also put control back into your own hands.


Tapping makes full use of the mind-body connection, acknowledging and integrating the concepts that physical pain, disease, and mental wellbeing are intricately connected to our emotional states. 


The body is equipped with an energy system that travels along pathways known as meridians. Tapping on these meridian endpoints helps to stimulate this system, and when verbally or mentally addressing the root causes of distress, the areas of blocked energy are able to release and flow naturally. 


The basic Tapping technique requires you to focus on the negative emotion at hand - a fear, a worry, a bad memory, an unresolved problem, or anything that’s bothering you. While maintaining your mental focus on this issue and using specific language, you use your fingertips to tap on specific meridian points of the body. 


Tapping on these meridian points while concentrating on the negative emotions engages both the brain’s limbic system and the body’s energy system, encouraging a sense of safety and resolution. And as the scientific field of epigenetics is proving, when you change your internal environment - your emotions and beliefs - external changes in your mental and physical health will follow. 


The amygdala is known as the brain’s fear centre, from which the “flight or fight” response originates, alerting other parts of the brain that it senses danger. This, in turn, initiates the firing of other brain receptors and the release of specific hormones that allow the body to respond to the perceived danger. This process is highly useful when faced with a real survival situation or an actual threat but can be detrimental when developed into an “irrational fear” such as public speaking or a fear of rejection. 

Scientific Research has shown that tapping has been shown to literally “turn off” the amygdala, disrupting the stress response and allowing the brain synapses to be rewired for a more appropriate emotional response to a given situation, bad memory, etc.  It can also be shown with an EEG machine (which measures brainwaves) that brainwave patterns absolutely respond to EFT.

PLEASE NOTE:  EFT nor any part of my Wellness Programme is a substitute for qualified medical or psychological care and treatment. As an EFT Practitioner I cannot diagnose. If you have not obtained a diagnosis from your doctor regarding a health condition, please do so.  All my treatments are complementary to conventional medical care but not a replacement for it.  I encourage you to make your own health care decisions based upon your research and in partnership with a qualified health care professional.  Any clients who fail to consult with appropriate health care professionals do so at their own risk.


Each session lasts approximately one hour and we can work through any specific issues you wish to focus on.  If you are not sure exactly what it is you wish to work on or where to start, we can do some other work to uncover that such as hypnotherapy and we can also combine it with this and/or matrix re-imprinting.

Alternatively, you can use the sessions to focus on how to learn to use this life changing technique.

A great way to finish a tapping session is with a guided meditation or some Reiki healing and I can combine EFT with either of these treatments.

EFT sessions can be held face to face or over Zoom.

Please do get in touch if you would like any more information or would like to make an appointment.
