Emotional Freedom Techniques
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or Tapping as it is most commonly referred to, is a brilliant technique that is quick to learn and easy to work with.
We will identify the main issues of concern and then work through them in a simple tapping procedure.
The light tapping that is done on acupuncture points and along the meridians interrupts the emotion connected to the issue of concern and through this we bring down the ‘charge’ on your reactions.
One session will leave you feeling empowered to take on everyday issues and manage your reactions to events in the workplace, at home and in social circumstances too.
Ongoing tapping sessions can be done to provide therapeutic insights and facilitation for support with more complex or multi-layered issues.
Clinical EFT is an Evidence-Based practice for the treatment of psychological and physiological conditions which include;
