EFT (AKA Tapping) is a set of techniques that are quick and quite easy to learn by anyone. The techniques are simple to apply, even with the most difficult emotional issues, and support people with some of the most debilitating problems, such as PTSD, sexual assault, phobias, panic attacks and many more.
EFT operates on the same principles as Acupuncture and is often described as Acupuncture without needles! Like acupuncture, EFT works with the body’s energy system. If the body’s energy is allowed to flow freely, we experience mental, physical and emotional health. Any disruption or blockages to the energy system and we experience some difficulty in one or more of these areas. It may be a minor tension headache or similar discomfort, but when the disruption becomes long-term or chronic, major mental, emotional and/or physical illness can occur.
According to oriental philosophy, all illness, trauma and disease has an emotional root, therefore illness, trauma and disease cannot thrive in an emotionally well body, so when we clear the emotional disturbances, or blockages, we can gain a deeper state of health and wellbeing.
So, how does EFT apply to Recovery? Tony O’Connor explains:
Having spent a little over 20 years working in the drugs field, I have learned that there is a great need to support our clients through the stress and sometimes traumatic impact of the recovery process. There is a need for support from the first stirrings of contemplating an addiction free life, through to the stage where maintaining that freedom is essential if relapse is to be overcome. Helping our clients to manage feelings and emotions in a safe and appropriate way clearly benefits them.
Experience tells us that as soon as a person starts to feel the impact of withdrawal, they are going to connect with themselves emotionally. What we have known for many years is that as well as the addictions, every emotional issue and trauma also walks through the doors of our treatment centres. Life history issues, guilt, anger, anxiety, panic, sexual/violent assault, self harm, phobias and eating disorders to name a few. EFT is amazing for resolving, or eliminating the impact of these issues in our clients’ lives and offers them a self-help tool to support the maintenance of their addiction-free lifestyle.
EFT can also support the clients in dealing with potential relapse situations and managing drug and alcohol cravings successfully.
This one-day course is aimed at all professionals supporting people with drug and alcohol addiction. The beauty of EFT lies not only in the quick, easy and effective application of the techniques but also in the empowerment of the clients as they get the support they require when and where they need it, and learn the process for themselves so they can use a new, healthy, holistic and non-intrusive way to manage the daily pressures of life free from addiction. Life on life’s terms!
