EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT is a psychological acupressure technique based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments (but without needles!).



EFT involves simple tapping with the fingertips, to input kinetic energy onto certain meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem (whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc), and voice positive affirmations. This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the “short-circuit” – the emotional block — from your body’s bio-energy system, thus restoring your mind and body’s balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.

My experience using EFT

EFT is an amazing therapy, I am experienced EFT Practitioner and I have been using this technique successfully with my clients for several years with often quite dramatic results to unblock emotional and psychological symptoms issues. I am fully insured and registered with AAMET (Association of Advanced Meridian Energy Therapists).

How does EFT work?

Blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life harmoniously. Resulting symptoms are either emotional and/ or physical and include lack of confidence and self-esteem, feeling stuck anxious or depressed, or the emergence of compulsive and addictive behaviours. It is also now finally, widely accepted that emotional disharmony is a key factor in physical symptoms and dis-ease and for this reason these techniques are being extensively used on physical issues, including chronic illness with often astounding results. As such these techniques are being accepted more and more in medical and psychiatric circles as well as in the range of psychotherapies and healing disciplines.

Where can you find out more?

Tapping different parts of your body is central to Emotional Freedom Technique, an increasingly popular energy therapy. This figure illustrates the tapping points on the finger and gamut – the crease on the back of your hand between your little finger and ring finger. Note that all the finger points are on the outside edge of the finger where the nail meets the skin.





EFT is a psychotherapeutic tool based on the theory that negative emotions are caused by disturbances in the body’s energy field. EFT uses major energy centres and special energy points (meridian points) to stimulate and improve the flow of energy through the body thus restoring it to balance. The EFT treatment points are stimulated by tapping on them in a sequence or ‘round’.The most important part of any EFT treatment is to focus on the problem and the specific blockage.
