EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique Melbourne
What is EFT and does it work?
EFT is a tapping technique often referred to as Emotional Freedom Technique, Emotional Acupuncture or Psychological Acupuncture. EFT is a highly effective short term therapy technique that can bring about rapid transformation in a clients perspective and ability to resolve emotional issues.
When done with a trained practitioner a typical EFT Session will consist of counselling done according to EFT protocols and structure. Tapping will commence during the discussion.
The tapping is often thought to be designed to distract from uncomfortable emotions, but in fact this tapping technique enables greater focus and clarity around the issue being worked on because as the issue is discussed, tapping on the acupuncture points creates a pulse which triggers a relaxation response. In a way this could be seen as counter conditioning the response to triggers that would normally result in negative emotional responses. This opens a window to clarity which enables the client to review and resolve the emotions they feel about a past issue, once resolved the memory remains and with that any educational experience can be drawn from it to inform the clients future, but they are no longer stuck in the emotion.
Tapping can be used to effectively work through and resolve Anxiety, Depression, unhealthy eating habits, smoking, compulsive behaviours, fear of failure, perfectionism, phobia, low self-esteem to name but a few.
The diagram indicates the points where the client and practitioner gently tap during the session, The tapping is done with the index and middle finger and it can be done with either hand,and indeed some clients like to use both hands.
Tapping delivers fast results and works beautifully in conjunction with Hypnosis, which is why I often combine the two therapies in my sessions, using EFT in the first part of the session to reduce immediate symptoms and Hypnosis to embed the positive transformation that is being set up to take place.

EFT for rapid transformation and stress reduction
