Ask Zoe: Can I do EFT At Home Effectively?

 

Martin asked recently: “Can I do EFT at home once I’ve had a session and is it just as effective?

That’s kind of a complicated question. You can definitely do EFT at home. Many of my clients do it. It seems to work best as a maintenance and continuity program in between sessions, at least at first. I once had a client with severe recurrent depression who came to me at the beginning of such a period of depression. He came to me once a week for six weeks. At the end of each session, I gave him phrases to use that came out of the session. He did EFT Tapping on his own several times a day, using these and other phrases. He had such dramatic improvement that the depression was resolved and he felt fine stopping therapy at that point. On follow-up some weeks later, he was still doing fine.

There are several main points about EFT Tapping on your own:

  1. For it to be effective, you need to do it several times a day.
  2. It’s important to be as specific as possible with your issue when you tap with EFT. See my video on my website for pointers.
  3. If you have severe trauma or severe anxiety, it’s best to start with a therapist so he or she can make sure you’re ok and so that she/he can give you specific EFT Tapping sequences and let you know what to watch out for. See my free E-Report for how to recognize symptoms of stress and trauma.

Have fun tapping!

Wishing you a free and joyous life,

Zoë
