Susan Warren, Advanced Healing Arts Counselor; EMDR, EFT, Grief Counseling, Hypnosis Therapy in Tucson Arizona
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was developed by Gary Craig, and is one of the world's fastest spreading and most effective techniques for changing negatives in to positives. It's because Gary is one of the most generous people I've ever met and he wants to make it available to everyone. Initially he learned a technique called TFT (Thought Field Therapy) from Dr. Roger Callahan, whom I worked with briefly while learning TFT before I learned EFT, then he discovered his method that may be a faster and more efficient way of getting quick permanent results. On his website he has testimonials coming in from physicians, nurses, physicists, teachers, parents, children, professional athletes, actors, and performers from every corner of the planet. He semi-retired in June of 2010 but is still very active.
EFT can be used by me on a client, by the client on them self, or on others by being their surrogate. It involves tapping on different points through out the body while focusing on changing a negative in to a positive and/or on increasing a positive. For example, one new mother I worked with used it with her baby when he was teething and he would begin to laugh and giggle. Another mother had a young son diagnosed with ADHD and his school was threatening to make him leave unless his mother medicated him. She didn't want to do that so she began tapping on herself for his ADHD issues and within 4 months her son's symptoms were gone and he was able to stay in school and did quite well. I've had some people suffering from PTSD for 40 years use the tapping and say their memories no longer bother them and they are able to function again. One lady who had suffered from a crystal meth addiction and bulimia for years uses it daily and is free from those addictive behaviors and is now quite successful.
I have taught many clients to use it to stop cravings for food, cigarettes, and drugs. Some people use it to decrease anxiety, fears, anger, and pain. They tap in a positive thought to replace the negative thoughts. It works well on any issue with most everyone. It can be done with individuals but I have also done it with groups of people at the same time. The most important thing is the focus of concentration and the intention of the tapper.
