EFT (Tapping)

We offer EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) to clients  as part of  the Centre’s holistic approach to care.   All therapists are fully qualified members of a Professional  Body.

What is EFT?

EFT is a simple and effective therapeutic tool,  sometimes  known as  "emotional  acupuncture”.

Properly applied,  EFT quickly  realigns  the energy  system with respect to negative memories, disconnects  the  physical discomfort that we attached to them, and quite often removes  the  resulting symptoms.

EFT has been described as a kind of psychological acupressure, acupuncture without needles. It involves  focusing on the memory while tapping on specific  points on the meridians.

Energy psychology  shows  how  to stimulate specific points  on  the skin that will send  electromagnetic  signals  directly to the brain. If, at  the  same time, we hold in our mind a  situation that triggers  an  unwanted emotional  response,  we  can actually  shift our brain’s response to that situation.

EFT uses energy psychology to apply principles and techniques for working with the  body’s physical energies to facilitate desired changes in emotions,  thoughts and  behavior.

How can EFT help?

No  matter how devoted we are to a proper diet and lifestyle, we will not achieve our  body's ideal healing and preventative powers  if emotional barriers stand in our way.

Emotional health is absolutely essential to our physical  health and healing.

Negative emotional experiences disrupt  the energy  systems, or meridians, that run through our body.

EFT can help overcome unwanted emotions such as fear,  guilt, shame, jealousy, or anger;  and  change unwanted habits  and  behavior, enhancing our ability to achieve our potential.

How will EFT make me feel?

  • Tapping is painless
  • No need to remove any clothing, just relax in a comfortable chair
  • Each session will  last about an hour in total
  • Following an EFT session, the dispelled  feelings  very  rarely return
  • Memories are always maintained, but without  the  emotional charge that  was  attached to them
  • Most people find that an EFT session is both rewarding and relaxing

How many sessions can I have?

Initially  members  may  book 4 free sessions of  EFT or 4 sessions of  a combination of  therapies.

Following these we would respectfully  request that, circumstances  allowing,  members make a minimum donation of £5.00  per  session. This may be made at  the  time of booking or on the day, prior to receiving a  treatment.

We would suggest  that treatments  should be  at least  1 week apart  and  not less than 24 hours  following clinical treatment  of any  kind.            

Where will the therapy take place?

All therapy  sessions take place in our dedicated therapy rooms at  the  Centre.

We have adjustable couches  which can be  lowered to assist those with mobility  difficulties. They  can  also be adjusted to a  semi-sitting position for those who prefer not  to lie flat. Please discuss this with your therapist.

How do I book a therapy session?

All sessions are booked through the manager or an appointed volunteer. You can book in person, by telephone on 01293 534465 or by e-mail.
