What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)?

by Veronica Valli EFT, NLP, Life coach

I came across EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) a few years ago when I was struggling with public speaking. I would get so nervous before I had to speak I wanted to throw up. I met an EFT practitioner who said she could help with that. As a traditionally trained therapist I was skeptical, but desperate enough to give it a try. At first, EFT seems a little bizarre, tapping on energy meridian points whilst saying statements to do with the issue you are working on. But the effects were immediate and dramatic. I then used EFT on a variety of other personal issues with the same effect.

The premise of EFT is very simple: 'The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system.'

Our body is an energy system but we have lost the ability to process our emotions in a way that is helpful to us. Instead, these negative feelings and emotions get trapped in our central nervous system causing us emotional and physical distress.

EFT solves this problem simply and effectively.

'Tapping' and focusing on the 'issue' releases the negative energy. Stress, anxiety, emotional blocks, fear - all these issues can be addressed through EFT. EFT can also help with weight loss, issues from the past, depression, resentment and trauma.

Nearly everyone sees results after their first session.

I have been practicing EFT since 2009 and I constantly amazed at the results I see in myself and others.
