Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one of the power therapies now being used frequently to assist with:
anxiety, depression, learning difficulties and other comorbidities which accompany ADHD –
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) works by manipulating the body’s energy field by tapping on acupuncture points while a specific traumatic memory is focused on, allowing the brain function to be modified, releasing negative emotions in order to alleviate a psychological problem.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) appear to be a safe way of releasing negative emotions under most circumstances and children can easily be taught the technique. When used for “everyday” negative emotions such as irritability, anger, frustration, phobias and emotionally charged situations it seems to be quite safe. However, it is not advised to attempt the release of very traumatic incidents like sexual or physical abuse without the supervision of a qualified mental health professional.
Since EFT does not require extensive verbal skills, emotional expressiveness or experience of psychotherapeutic processes it is ideally suited for use with children. Since EFT works physiologically it can be useful for neurological as well as emotional conditions. EFT is very safe – it either works or it doesn’t- and it does not make conditions worse. The technique allows children to manage their own emotions and with adequate training and practice, this can give a child more freedom, autonomy and self control.
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) seems to produce permanent effects for many conditions. However, if a condition does return, repeated Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) sessions will usually release the condition. Over the years, many people have learned how to use EFT and continue to use it without serious problems. Whilst, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) will not work on every single issue, it does appear to be effective 90% of the time. In most cases, the results are remarkable!
