Steve Bishop – Emotional Freedom Techniques
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is often the first introduction to Energy Psychology and Meridian Energy Therapies, because its approach is so simple and straightforward to learn and yet is profoundly powerful in its effects. Although it overturns conventional thinking about therapeutic change, the results are transformative.
EFT is a form of psychological acupressure based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture, but without the invasiveness of needles.
Tapping or holding a sequence of accupuncture points while tuning into a problem causes blocks and distress to melt away rapidly and gently, like snow in the sunshine. This accelerated process enables clients and therapists to work rapidly through layers of decisions and beliefs, memories and emotions to treat the root cause of dysfunction.
EFT has been proven clinically effective (over 80%) for Trauma, Abuse, Stress, Anxiety, Fears, Phobias, Depression, Grief, Addictive Cravings, Children’s Issues and hundreds of physical symptoms including headaches, body pains and breathing difficulties. It really is the missing piece to the healing puzzle.
Here is a picture of its creator Gary Craig and I in Seattle USA in April 2005. The training on this particular course focused on dealing with people who have serious diseases, like cancer, asthma, hepatitis or fibromyalgia. It also covered dealing with others who have the misfortune and health consequences of being raped or abused etc.

If you want try it out for yourself, then try this:
Start by tapping the fleshy part of the side of your hand, typically where the hand would make contact with a table if you were performing a karate chop. Tap there continuously whilst saying “Even though I am upset with Joe Bloggs (or whatever describes how you are feeling in your own words), I deeply and completely accept myself” And say that statement 3 times whilst tapping.
Then tap on these following points whilst saying “I am upset with Joe Bloggs” (or how you are feeling in your own words):
Then take a deep but gentle breath and repeat if the feeling has not gone completely.
