Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is commonly referred to as psychological acupressure. The therapy aims to release emotional blockages within the body’s energy system.
As with many other therapies, EFT works on the premise that the body contains energy channels. When these energy channels become blocked or unbalanced, it is believed to lead to emotional and physical illness.
Using tapping techniques, EFT looks to correct these imbalances.
In the western world, we are beginning to catch up with the premise that emotional health is imperative to physical health. As well as affecting our health, emotional blocks can lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours. This may result in phobias, anxiety, depression or even addictions.
In a similar way to acupuncture, EFT looks to release blocked energy by stimulating the meridian points. Rather than using needles however, this therapy uses tapping techniques.
Tapping (using the fingertips) on certain points on the body, combined with voicing positive affirmations is thought to neutralise the emotional block in energy.
EFT aims to tackle both the negative emotions and unbalanced or blocked energy. This is done by tapping meridian points on the body while focusing on the issue and repeating positive affirmations.
This combination of stimulating meridian points whilst thinking about root causes enables the energy system to ‘straighten out’. This is believed to eradicate the ‘short circuit’ to the body’s learnt response or negative emotion.

I just had to write to say a huge thank you for the quality time we spent together. I was in a very difficult place last year and in just 3 sessions a huge burden was lifted from me. I was particularly impressed with EFT. You are a remarkably talented therapist and one I highly recommend to everyone.
