Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Technique is a simple, highly effective method that can enable you to rapidly:
- Alleviate negative emotions
- Change undesirable thought patterns and behaviors
- Improve some physical symptoms
Moreover, these benefits are generally long lasting.
While the method is unorthodox - it is thought to work through the body's subtle energy system - it has been embraced by many thousands of people around the world including psychotherapists, psychiatrists, and medical doctors.
Below are a small sample of the problems I've addressed in my several years of experience with Emotional Freedom Technique and similar tools:
- Childhood abuse
- Weight loss
- Sports performance
- Childhood fears
- Accident Trauma
- Sales performance
- Task resistance
- Low self-esteem

- Compulsive behavior
- Fear of intimacy
- Fear of Public Speaking
- Work Performance
- Addictions & Alcoholism
- Relationship Issues
- Academic problems
- Limiting beliefs
- Body image Issues
Advantages of Using ET In The Context of Therapy and Coaching
Speed: If you're seeking therapy or coaching, you want results - and the sooner, the better - right? In my experience, EFT can vastly accelerate the process of change.
Depth: Results with EFT can be dramatic and far-reaching. People can feel transformed by the experience of having a long-standing, deep-seated problem disappear.
Freedom from the past: EFT can be used to “neutralize” disturbing memories, often resulting in significant healing and growth.
Works when other methods have failed: Clients frequently tell me they’ve been in therapy before, and as a result, have insight into their problems. What they really wanted was to get over the problems. They’re thrilled when EFT allows them this freedom.
Self-help: My clients learn from our work together how to use EFT independently.
Comfort: Many people avoid dealing with traumatic events in therapy because they don’t want to re-experience the disturbing memories. EFT is a gentle method that doesn't re-traumatize people.
An easier life: EFT allows you to release negative emotions around the things you hate to do (such as paperwork, paying bills, cleaning, etc.). You can then do what you need to do without a struggle.
