Many symptoms such as depression, poor self esteem, anxiety and stress related physical conditions have their roots in unresolved distress from the past, Energy Psychotherapy can get to theses traumas and release them from the energy system.
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics” – Albert Einstein

Emotional Freedom Techniques
EFT is a simple and effective form of Energetic self regulation that uses tapping on the acupuncture points.
Since EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) evolved in the 1990’s, through the work of Gary Craig.
EFT has been used on a wide range of problems including post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD, phobias, physical pain, depression, pain, trauma, abuse, anxiety, addictions, chronic fatigue syndrome, eating disorders. Thousands are becoming aware of theses powerful techniques, therapists, scientists, doctors, psychiatrists and the general public.
EFT is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional problems for over five thousand years but without the use needles.
Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest and hands while you think about your specific problem whatever it may be.
The combination of tapping on the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmations and recalling certain experiences works to clear the “short-circuit” the emotional block from your body’s energy system, restoring your mind and body’s balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.
EFT is simple to apply and use outside of sessions it entails tapping on acupressure points of the body while recalling what ever is troubling the client. Please see the diagram below of the places where the tapping will take place.
Thought Field Therapy
TFT was invented by Dr Roger Callahan, one of the founding fathers of Energy Psychology.
He found that distress was encoded within the energy system of the body, which he named as the ‘thought field’, and that the distress could be dissipated and relieved by sequences of tapping on the meridians of traditional Chinese medicine, while that distress was held in mind.
He found that these sequences could be diagnosed through muscle-testing, he also devised tapping sequences, which he called algorithms, for commonly occurring negative emotional states, such as anxiety and fear.
However he also found that some people were resistant to this treatment. They could be ‘neurologically disorganised’ and he devised simple ways of correcting that, or they could be experiencing what he called ‘psychological reversals’, unconscious blocks to the treatment, similar to Freud’s concept of resistance. He said that these reversals and his methods of overcoming them were his most important discovery, and it is true that all modalities of energy therapy incorporate some way of treating reversals.
Counselling / psychotherapy
Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.
Psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat emotional problems and mental health conditions. It involves talking to a trained therapist, either one-to-one, in a group or with your wife, husband or partner.
The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness.
Mindfulness meditation practices have been proven to help reduce stress and is now widely used in the prevention of it.
Energy Psychology (EP) modalities have been researched by more than 100 investigators in at least 7 countries. As of 2017, over 80 research studies have been published on EP modalities, out of theses only one has not shown efficacy. There are now more than 80 research studies published in peer reviewed scientific journals, 43 of theses studies are randomised controlled trials, 98% show Energy Psychology methods to be highly effective. There are 4 meta-analyses, and 4 systematic reviews to look at them go to the ACEP research page.
“A literature search identified 51 peer-reviewed papers that report or investigate clinical outcomes following the tapping of acupuncture points to address psychological issues. The 18 randomized controlled trials in this sample were critically evaluated for design quality, leading to the conclusion that they consistently demonstrated strong effect sizes and other positive statistical results that far exceed chance after relatively few treatment sessions. Criteria for evidence-based treatments proposed by Division 12 of the American Psychological Association were also applied and found to be met for a number of conditions, including PTSD.” (Feinstein, 2012)

And here is more good news
In 2016, TFT (Thought Field Therapy) was validated by NREPP (the National Repertory of Evidence Based Practices and Procedures, a division of SAMHSA in the U.S.) as an evidence-based treatment. You can read more about it on our
• EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is currently under review by NREPP in the U.S., and by NICE (the National Institute for Clinical Excellence) in the UK. We expect to receive the results of their reviews soon.
• There are over 400 identified forms of psychotherapy, most of which have little or no research to validate them. Energy psychology is both evidence-based and in the top 10% in terms of research for psychotherapy modalities.
