Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT is a simple therapy which I have recently learnt. It is mainly used for releasing unhelpful negative emotions that may be holding us back, but can also be used to reduce stress, pain, anxiety, fear and physical problems too.
It involves tapping on specific acupressure points whilst repeating an affirmation related to your feelings. The first time I tried it on myself I was astounded at the change in feeling! And it’s so quick and easy too. For example, if you are worried about a forthcoming job interview, you simply tap the acupressure points whilst repeating something like ‘I’m so worried about the job interview next week’. After the procedure, the stress or worry is very much reduced. Sometimes it’s hard to understand that you had the worry in the first place!
Of course I will be using this wonderful technique with my clients!
