EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique In Surrey 

With NSP Registered Master Trainer, James Golding. 

What is EFT? 

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise known as 'Tapping' is a meridian energy technique marrying the principles of ancient Chinese medicine with modern western psychology. It shares principles with acupuncture, shiatsu, reflexology and kinesiology and is part of a growing movement known as Energy Psychology. 
In its simplest form the practice involves acupressure: applying light pressure to the end points of energetic meridian lines while tuning in to a specific emotional or physical problem. Despite its gentle approach it has acquired a reputation for achieving quick, lasting results relatively painlessly when compared to other forms of psycho- and somatic therapy. 
 
It easily integrates with other forms of therapy such as psychotherapy, counselling, Neurolinguistic Programming, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, traditional allopathic medicine, massage, kinesiology, acupuncture, to name but a few. 
 
EFT is a direct descendant of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) a meridian energy technique developed in the 1980s by Psychologist, Dr Roger Callahan. EFT was introduced in the early 1990s by Gary Craig, a Stanford graduate engineer with an interest in psychology and Neuro linguistic Programming, who trained with Roger Callahan. Gary Craig, along with his personally trained EFT Masters has successfully disseminated this unique method all over the world. 
 
An ever increasing body of scientific research has validated the effectiveness of this powerful therapeutic tool (see http://www.eftuniverse.com A recent study published in the Journal of Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, which sought to establish the effectiveness of EFT for emotional conditions within the NHS in Sandwell, supported the potential of EFT "as a cost-effective treatment for a range of psychological and physical disorders" (Stewart et al., 2013)[Stewart, A., Boath, E., Carryer, A., Walton, I. & Hill, L. (2013) Can Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) be Effective in the Treatment of Emotional Conditions? Results of a Service Evaluation in Sandwell. The Journal of Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, vol. 2 71-84.]
