What is EFT?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). It is a form of counselling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT).
The premise of Emotional Freedom Technique is that:
"Our negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body's energy system"
EFT works to clear such disruptions and eliminate the resulting emotional response or intensity to restore emotional harmony and offer relief from physical discomfort. This is achieved through focussed tapping on the body's energy meridians.
The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and focusing on root causes through thought and verbalising, facilitates restoration of the energy system and eliminates "short circuits" to the body's learnt response or negative emotion.
I have always known what I need to do to lose my excess weight (don't we all!) but have historically struggled to do this by myself ending up with a short term success but quickly putting any lost weight back on. Through Vidya's support with both 1:1 Diet and EFT, she has helped uncover what my comfort eating represents for me and enabled me to identify it and respond in other ways other than raiding the snack cupboard. I have hugely valued every session with Vidya, her listening and uncovering what isn't said out loud are fine tuned, I always walk away feeling like I've discovered something new about myself and a better understanding of how I operate.
I didn’t really know much about EFT before seeing Vidya but she explained it all to me and it made ‘sense’.
I have used the technique on my own at times when I feel anxious and it has helped me to relax and re-focus.
I just wanted to thank you so much for helping me. I had been a secret eater for many years and was struggling to stop. I didn't know what to expect from EFT but you explained the process in a very gentle, quiet manner that put me completely at ease. With your help during our session, we used tapping to release my anxieties and fears. I was especially moved by the emotional journey you came on with me. You are a very special practitioner. After just one hour I felt 'unblocked' and relieved - and have continued to use the tools you gave me since with continued success. Thank you Vidya. I have already recommended you to others needing to try an alternative approach to medicine or counselling.
What will I experience?
We focus on the specific problem whilst tapping with fingers on the end points of your body's energy meridians.
You will notice a feeling of being released from the issue that is being treated both physically and emotionally.
The best analogy for my role as an EFT Practitioner, is that I work like a dentist would. I can teach you how to ‘clean your teeth’ properly in sessions, but you can choose to see me regularly, as little or as often as you need to keep things in working order, and to do any deeper more restorative work which may feel necessary to you.
