How it works:
During your session, you use your fingertips to tap on specific acupressure points as your therapist guides you through the process.
We start by getting specific about the issue that is presenting as a difficulty in your life. It might be an emotion or a particular thought, for example, fear of public speaking, excessive anger or cyclic anxious thoughts.
We work together to put the sensations, thoughts or feelings associated with the issue into words. We use phrases which describe your experience and say them out loud while tapping on meridian points. This allows you to safely notice and experience your emotions. We continue in this manner, clarifying as we go, till the experienced intensity on the current difficulty is low.
It might seem unconventional to process thoughts and emotions in this way. Usually, our present is informed by our past experience, and EFT helps to work with and resolve underlying layers that may be contributing to current difficulty. Through EFT we connect with more than the mind – we use information (sensations) from the body as well. For example, when you are worried you may experience a racing heart, with sadness, a heaviness in your chest.
Through this simple and effective process, we can acknowledge our current distress and allow clarity and resolution of the issue.
