What is Emotional Freedom Technique?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) can be known as ‘tapping’ or ‘acupuncture without needles.’ It is a holistic self-help method that involves mindfully and gently tapping on acupressure points on body to quickly and simply relieve physical and emotional pain. It works on the same mechanisms that traditional Chinese energy Medicine is based on. It’s roots can be found in kinesiology, acupuncture and psychology.

EFT is easy to use and can be used by anyone. If you choose to use EFT in your sessions, as an accredited EFT therapist I will teach you the technique and how best to use it outside of the sessions.

Many of my clients are surprised by the effects of EFT and you do not need to understand or believe in the theory behind it for it to work, It can present quick results but the therapy can be used with real depth and treat issues at their root cause.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist I can uniquely integrate EFT with counselling and psychotherapy to suit your needs.

EFT can be used for:



Panic attacks

Fears and phobias

Traumatic memories


Physical pain and pain management



Understanding emotional roots of physical health


Anger management
