Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a powerful technique that helps eliminate painful emotions, physical pain and psychological problems by tapping on certain parts of the body. . It can help just about everyone to achieve genuine freedom from the emotions that have created problems in their lives. EFT helps to restore balance in the energy field and can rapidly resolve many psychological and emotional problems. It comes from kinesiology and works on the principle that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system. It has helped people almost miraculously with a broad range of difficulties. New or old emotional upsets can often be released in minutes, their results are usually long lasting, and side effects are almost always positive.
During an EFT session you focus on the problem and say it out loud whilst either you or I tap on certain points around your face and upper body whilst fully clothed. The tapping routine takes about 1-2minutes to apply and is completely safe. Depending on the complexity, most issues respond after a few sessions and you’re left with a logical understanding or a rational response to the problem ….and it rarely returns. EFT has been shown in studies and clinical trials to help with anxiety, trauma, stress, phobias, weight loss, fears, grief, addiction, depression and even reduce the intensity of pain and side effects of cancer treatment.
Below is a website that houses a variety of clinical trials, studies and reports on the efficacy of EFT:
Mindfulness can be practiced by anyone from young to old. Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to, and seeing clearly whatever is happening in our lives. It will not eliminate life's pressures, but it can help us respond to them in a calmer manner that benefits our heart, head, and body. It helps us recognise and step away from habitual, often unconscious emotional and physiological reactions to everyday events. It provides us with a scientifically researched approach to cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding. Practicing mindfulness allows us to be fully present in our life and work, and improve our quality of life.
With mindfulness practice, we can learn to quieten the mind through mental exercises such as noticing your breathing and body sensations. For example, these exercises help you not to take things personally, but learn to treat them as if they were clouds in the sky, observing them with curiosity. There are exercises to encourage you to be kind to yourself instead of being critical. Mindfulness has been clinically proven to bring about long term changes with negative thoughts, depression and anxiety. It is not a form of religion, it merely trains your mind to focus more clearly.
