What is EFT?
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a form of energy psychology. Energy psychology is a branch of psychology that addresses the mind and body systems in tandem in order to address the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. EFT is an advancement in our ability to help ourselves and others heal and grow. It integrates about 42 other helping modalities including cognitive behavioural therapy, talk, NLP and various other modalities.
A core principle of energy psychology is the understanding that the root cause of psychological problems is emotional stress. And unresolved emotional stress can cause physical, mental and performance issues. Therefore, it is essential to address the root emotional stress when attempting to resolve mental or physical trauma.
One of the most powerful tools we have available today to address emotional stress and its associated symptoms in the areas of health, wealth, relationships and work is EFT.
EFT techniques use the fingers to tap on acupuncture points, and when this is done in conjunction with tuning into the traumatic or difficult or painful experience that is laced with emotion, the tapping process detaches the emotional charge from that thought or memory.
The technique does not eliminate the memory; instead, it removes the associated negative emotions from the memory, thus freeing the individual from paralyzing fear, stress, anxiety, and other emotional traps.
One of the greatest gifts that EFT brings to psychology, medicine, coaching and other human transformational practices is the fact that it is a gentle technique that is rapid, reliable, and accessible for people with even the most traumatic of experiences to address.
What issues can be helped with EFT?
Conditions helped are varied and include:
- Weight issues
- Food issues
- Childhood traumas
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- Physical conditions (e.g. MS, ME, dyslexia, chronic back pain, psoriasis, eczema, allergies, arthritis, etc.)
- Relationship pain
- Confidence issues,

EFT is gentle enough for use with children and during pregnancy and birth.
Note: the term EFT refers to a specific healing method that is used as a compliment to traditional psychotherapy and coaching modalities. You may have this referred to as “EFT,” “EFT tapping” or just “tapping.” All three terms can be used interchangeably.
