With the gulf between traditional and alternative medicine growing, it feels as though holistic healing is going through its own renaissance and making a huge emergence into our everyday lives at the moment. If you haven’t heard of Faster EFT chances are that you’re a (welcome) newcomer to the world of holistic health and wellbeing. If you have heard of it, or even used it yourself I’d love to hear about your experience.  In this blog, I’ll be talking a look at Faster EFT, its origins, the pain points and a few of my case studies.

HISTORY

Faster EFT (Emotionally Focused Transformation) was developed by Robert Smith as an evolution of Emotional Freedom Technique or tapping, which emerged in the 1990s. Faster EFT introduced the philosophy of neuroplasticity to the suite of techniques already used to enable emotional freedom and transformation.

WHAT IS FASTER EFT

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to form new neural connections and therefore re-channel and re-direct thought processes. This means that we as individuals have the power to transform the way we deal emotionally with challenges in our life. By tapping into our own programming, we give ourselves control over our past, present and future.

WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?

Faster EFT is a counselling-based therapy that explores the unhelpful thought processes operating on a cognitive and emotional level that are holding you back in life. These processes will be governing the way you view your past and the way you operate your future.  Faster EFT sessions clear out negative experiences, references and beliefs and pave the way to release anxieties, depression, negative patterns of behaviour, trauma, health issues and move forward in their life.

WHICH PAIN POINTS

Faster EFT works for many issues and the focus is on teaching people to help themselves which can be done through a trained practitioner or by learning how to use it to help ourselves:

Anxiety • Low Self-esteem • Fears • Phobias • Creative Blocks • Weight Loss • Depression • Grief & Loss • Sports Performance • Cravings • Headaches • Relationship Problems • Insomnia • Bad Habits • Allergies • Pain • Fatigue • Trauma • Addictions  and more

Read some of my case studies: 

1 – Relationship difficulties

One of my clients came to me with difficulties in her relationship with her husband. After a long marriage she had started to doubt their union. Issues that had previously seemed small and insignificant in the early days were taking a prominent position in her day-to-day thinking and having a destructive effect on her mental health. She was unsure whether to continue the marriage or to start a new life without her husband. After just one session of Faster EFT she told me her marriage was transformed. She was able to focus on the important elements of her life and dispense with the insignificant negativity that had built up over time.

2 – Stress and Isolation

This client had broken up with a long-term boyfriend, moved cities and started jobhunting all at once.  It was no surprise that she was experiencing insomnia, stress and emotional trauma but I was convinced that in this instance Faster EFT would set her on the right path. We quickly overcame her initial reluctance to use the therapy and rather than discussing personal details from her life we focused on her past and present thought processes. Dispensing entirely with the negativity associated with her situations enabled her to take a new perspective and a positive view of her future.

3 – Phobias

My client in this instant had a phobia of snakes.  As with most phobias this particular fear was grounded in irrational thinking. Previously unable to bear the sight of them on tv or in a book she took on a Faster EFT session and moved from this state of anxiety to being able to hold a python at a local fair. Anyone out there who has a phobia of anything will understand what a huge achievement this was.

If you are interested in knowing more or you’d like to book in for a session of Faster EFT please email me. Most people find that 1-2 sessions are sufficient. My philosophy with all of my training is to provide you with the skills to continue to help yourself achieve a more balanced life.
