Benefits of EFT Tapping

“EFT offers great healing benefits.”
Dr Deepak Chopra

The benefits of EFT tapping are quite remarkable. Since 2007 when I first discovered EFT tapping, this therapy technique has continued to yield outstanding results for my clients. In fact, EFT tapping has yet to fail, and both my clients and I have often been in complete awe of their successful, transformative outcomes.

I could spend hours, if not days sharing the success stories I’ve witnessed – results that have left me completely gobsmacked, and speechless! This may sound crazy, but this is precisely why I am totally “in love” with, and passionate about EFT tapping!

Without doubt the primary benefits of EFT tapping can be aptly summed up in just one word, results! 

EFT tapping actually offers so much value – the potential of which is enormous, and that’s no exaggeration. This includes being:

  • A highly effective stress relief technique or therapy modality for addressing a myriad of mental health issues, including complexities such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictive behaviours, and PTSD etc.
  • Life-changing transformations are certainly a great possibility with EFT tapping – this all depends upon what outcomes you wish to achieve, and how far you are willing to push personal development boundaries.
  • Having a wide variety of potential applications, well beyond my therapy uses. EFT tapping is also being actively applied in school classrooms, for improved sports performance, as a life-coaching enhancement tool, Veteran support etc.
  • A trusted ‘go-to’ and self-regulation tool that is a vital resource for those who prefer regular self-help application.
  • As well as providing clients with both a time and cost saving benefits too.

Let’s now dive a little deeper into each of these EFT tapping benefits:

Highly Effective Stress Relief Technique:
Based upon my experiences, a huge benefit of EFT tapping is the effectivity of this therapy modality to achieve results and successful outcomes. To the point, that when I agree to work with a new client, I can literally guarantee relief. Meaning my clients can expect to experience immediate results – often long lasting, if not permanent results. Even within their first consultation.

Additional some of the most common benefits of a EFT tapping session include stress relief, feeling lighter, more relaxed, at ease, peace, calm, mental clarity as well as joy.

Life-Changing Transformations: 
Since 2007, when I begun my EFT tapping therapy practise I have witnessed countless life-changing transformations. Clients who have overcome various addictions, eating disorders, healed trauma, including PTSD. For others, EFT tapping helped prevent self-harming behaviours and suicides. Many clients have come off all their anti-depressant medication, while others have had their anger management issues completely dissappear after just one EFT tapping session.  Review client testimonials here

Wide Variety of Potential Applications:
Gary Craig, the founder of EFT tapping had a wonderful saying, ’try it on anything and everything! It often works where nothing else will.  As such, EFT tapping has found its way into all areas of the medical fraternity, school classrooms, all types of sporting activities, particularly sport’s performance, physiotherapy, chiropractics, life coaching, Veteran support, in businesses for staff wellness and motivation etc. EFT tapping has also been effectively used by pet owners on their beloved animals, as well as by artists, musicians and writers to stimulate their creativity, productivity and performance abilities. As you can see, there is literally no limitation with regards to the application of EFT tapping.

A Self-Regulation Tool: 
I teach every new client I work with, how to apply EFT tapping as a self-regulation or self-soothing tool. For me, it is paramount to enable and empower my clients so they are better equipped to handle life’s inevitable curveballs. The client’s who have applied this have reported that aside from their sessions, having access to this tool has been a total game-changer.

For many clients, they have said they feel in control of their lives once again – they feel victorious, and no longer like victims of circumstances. This is particularly important if a client has been in an abusive relationship, at home or at work.

Time And Cost Saving Benefits:
This is perhaps one of the really important benefits of EFT tapping that is seldom spoken about, if at all. This modality can radically reduce the number of therapy sessions required to achieve a successful outcome.

Upon booking a new client, one of their FAQs is often – ”how many sessions do I need in order to achieve XYZ?”  They are clearly used to the traditional psychotherapy model where 10, 20 or more sessions are the norm i.e. weeks, months or even years of therapy.  My response usually floors them … I simply book only ONE session at a time. Yes, you read that correctly.

Why is this? 

Bottomline is EFT tapping is highly effective, particularly when one has the ability to discern, and understand the root cause of a given problem. This is my personal strength – having a nose for investigation – I do not simply treat symptoms (although these are important clues). Symptom treatment is like changing a bandaid. Instead, I actively seek out the root cause, and deal with that. Bingo!

That said, the majority of my clients have required only ONE session to resolve a specific problem. While one to three sessions is quite common. Only on rare occassions has a client required more than three sessions.

This becomes necessary when clients have several complex issues they wish to unpack and process. Or, if they are undergoing some quite big – usually overwhelming –  lifestyle changes, and they wish to have on-going support to achieve their ultimate goals.

Sounds amazing, right? 

An EFT tapping intervention removes the need to spend weeks, months or years in costly, long-drawn out traditional psychotherapy. Besides, most of the people I have met, and worked with have said they didn’t want to be “in therapy” in the first place. And, that’s aside from the natural stigma many people have about seeking therapy.

In general, clients have said they did not want to be psycho-analyzed, and or medicated because of their problems. Obviously, sometimes there is an important need for this approach, and clinical intervention. That said, I wish to be clear – I am not a psychologist nor a psychiatrist, therefore I do not psycho-analyze, diagnose or medicate clients.

Instead, I am a lay person with many rich lived experiences who also has decades of experience with EFT tapping and many other therapy modalities, including a business background. As such, my therapy views are way outside of the typical psychotherapy box. Most importantly for you, a prospective client reading this – I get results, and I have no doubt this is what you are seeking. You can review client testimonials here

What is my area of speciality?
However, in general, I have found this wasn’t necessary in order to help my clients overcome their burdensome emotional hurdles, or unwanted painful events or memories of the past, including most mental health issues. This includes dealing with anger and stress management, anxiety and panic attacks, fears and phobias, grief and loss, depression, trauma, PTSD, relationship problems, addictions as well as eating disorders.

With EFT tapping the vast majority of my clients have achieved a successful result in a mere 2 hour consultation. And, these clients were completely satisfied.  Approximately 90% didn’t need follow up sessions. If they did, they may need maybe one or two follow up sessions at most. To the best of my knowledge, this result is completely unheard of in traditional psychotherapy. Additionally, for these clients the cost of EFT tapping sessions was minimal.

Common Results and Benefits Of EFT Tapping Sessions?
EFT tapping is probably best known for stress relief. Benefits of EFT tapping include immediate relief, followed by a deep and true sense of relaxation.

These results are often immediate, even for heinous issues (emotional, psychological or physical). This stress relieving and calming effect is wonderful, and the benefits are permanent, particularly when all aspects have been dealt with. 

Many clients report feeling light, calm and relaxed. Some say they’ve slept well for the first time in many years, and their insomia is gone. Nightmares and flashbacks, as well as aches and pains can often mysteriously disappear.

With EFT ‘tapping’ I’ve successfully resolved all kinds of mental health and pyschotherapy issues people are commonly faced with – such as anger and stress management, addictions, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, fears and phobias, grief and loss, trauma, and even various relationship issues. 

See my specific posts under consultations. As a therapist, I am results orientated, and actively seek out the root cause of a client’s issues. I can literally guarantee success with clients.

These spectacular results are attained because we are treating a disruption of the body’s energy system. In my experience, EFT ‘tapping’ brings about subtle, yet life changing results in many instances.

In rare cases where we haven’t uncovered the core or root of the issue, clients have still reported feeling lighter, calmer and more peaceful. Interestingly at times, the relief is also physically apparent: stress and emotional baggage is ageing! Cognitive shifts and insights, those ‘Aha-moments’ are often also experienced during sessions.

Ultimately, as the name ‘Emotional Freedom Techniques’ implies, one receives emotional freedom and independence, providing inner peace and calm from even the most heinous of events or experiences because these negative emotions (disruptions) have been effectively released from the body’s energy system.  EFT ‘tapping’ is simply the best stress relief technique today – it’s quick and highly effective.

Although the results are often spectacular, there may be times where persistence and additional ‘detective’ work mabye required to uncover the core or root of an issue because its been deeply buried by the subconsious mind in an attempt to keep one feeling safe and secure. This may necessitate a few sessions – two or three is usually sufficient.

EFT ‘tapping’ is safe to use on a person of any age, including children and animals too. Also, EFT ‘tapping’ can be applied in conjunction with other therapies. It is safe to use if you’re undergoing medical treatment, on medication, and if pregnant. As a precaution, you can speak to your doctor or gynaecologist beforehand.

Without doubt, a major benefit of EFT ‘tapping’ is self empowerment … after one session you’ll have sufficient tools to utilise the tapping on a regular basis, and in the privacy of your own environment.

Quite literally, you have the keys to your own health and healing in your own hands, at your finger tips!   Tap – tap – tap ….

EFT ‘Tapping’ Testimonials

“Hi Bridget ….just to let you know that I had the most amazing day yesterday and (name withheld) got a room in the new private res so moving her soonest….feeling so positive and empowered by our session on Monday!! Thank you so much!! It’s amazing when blocked and negative energy is released….how liberating it feels ?thank you thank you thank you!!”   Nicky, Pietermaritzburg (One session only)

“My life got turned around in one afternoon, it’s as if you cleared years of blockages in one sitting, and I can be sceptical of certain alternative healing methods. I still can’t believe that such a simple, non-invasive healing can have such dramatic results. I can’t wait to tap again with you and see what else I have been burying deep inside my stubborn brain … if only everyone knew about this! Best wishes.”  Byron, Cape Town (One session only)

“Sometimes what we thought was the problem isn’t – Bridget helped me to ‘sort’ through the self imposed fog I found myself in. I went to see her once and the result was immediate and life changing. I learnt to be objective and distance myself and see my value and move into my true space. THANK YOU Bridget XXX (You DID change my life Bridget. So grateful. Want you to help lots more people).”  Lucia, Johannesburg (One session only)

“Being in the complimentary health profession myself, I have come to recognise the importance of releasing emotional ‘baggage’ that keeps us from being whole. EFT helped me to shift some deep-seated behavioural patterns that I was oblivious to as it had become so much a part of who I was. Bridget has a keen sense of guiding the process to those deep layers that we keep hidden from ourselves and she does this gently and with a great deal of compassion. What I found so beneficial is that once the emotion was revealed, it was not necessary to spend days picking at old wounds like one would do in conventional therapy. Instead I acknowledged the emotion and then moved on swiftly and elegantly without having to dwell on all the unpleasantness. I would recommend EFT and Bridget to anyone who wishes to expand their consciousness.”  Laura, therapist, Johannesburg  (Two sessions)

“My sessions with you were without a shadow of a doubt the most profound shift I had ever experienced. After the shame of having to close my business, and the resulting depression it plunged me into, you were the only one who managed to get me to re-frame, regenerate and rejuvenate on more levels than one. It was like the Phoenix rising from the ashes. You literally saved my life ……”  ❣️❣️?   Kirsten, Johannesburg (Two sessions)
