EFT for Professionals

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is an invaluable therapeutic and stress management tool for any professional working in a supportive/helping capacity.

Emotional Freedom Technique is sometimes known as “acupuncture without needles” and has been developed in the US in the 1990s. EFT brings together complementary therapies and psychology, by combining stimulation of a series of acupressure points with cognitive restructuring (specially worded affirmations), typically resulting in rapid shifts of cognition and relief from excess negative emotions. The main features are:

Even beginners can typically use EFT with a high degree of success for relief from irrational fears and anxieties, addictive cravings, aches & tensions, unpleasant memories and difficult emotions. It can be easily combined with other approaches, such as NLP, CBT, EMDR, TA, Time Line Therapy, hypnosis, etc.
