What can it help with?

A well-known motto within the EFT community is “try it on everything”. Because the therapy is non-invasive, entirely natural and safe, there is nothing to lose by trying it on any issue. Advocates of the therapy say it can offer long-lasting relief and often works where other approaches fail.

EFT works well for recurring problems as they aim to tackle the root cause, rather than simply treating symptoms.

Below is a list of issues people commonly turn to EFT for:

  • addiction
  • depression
  • fears and phobias
  • stress
  • pain management
  • anxiety
  • panic attacks
  • trauma
  • anger management
  • weight loss
  • insomnia.

It is important to note that EFT is a complementary therapy and therefore should be used alongside medical advice. If you suffer from any of the above, be sure to speak to your doctor. You should also advise your EFT practitioner if you are undergoing any other form of therapy or medication.

Another consideration to keep in mind is that while EFT does tackle emotional concerns, it should not be used in place of mental health treatment. For some, EFT will not be suitable. Be sure to tell your doctor/mental health practitioner before starting any new therapies.
