EFT Tapping Endorsements

Apparently both Camilla Parker Bowles and Meghan Markle have benefitted from the use of EFT Tapping.In recent years, EFT tapping endorsements have begun popping up everywhere across the globe, and in the media. More significantly amongst celebrities, royalty, prominent medical specialists and highly respected wellness practitioners. And, high level athletes and sports professionals too. All of whom have benefitted from EFT tapping in one way or another.

As a therapist who has practised EFT tapping since 2007, I’m not surprised to see the ever-increasing popularity EFT tapping has gained. After all, the rapid relief, and remarkable results speak for themselves. And, since EFT tapping continues to offer wonderful benefits, I can only see this therapy modality gaining greater popularity in future. More especially as a practical, easy-to-use self help tool.

Over the years, I have worked with some South African celebrities, from radio, TV and sports personalities, models and high profile individuals, I respect their wish to remain anomyous. As such, I completely understand why the world’s rich and famous also wish to protect their identities and private lives. So finding these EFT tapping endorsements online was as much challenging, as it was a bit of a scoop too …

I would like to clarify an important point – while some endorsements shared below are non-verbal, the public display and use of EFT tapping by some celebs speaks volumes. For others, their stories are quite fascinating, and insightful. I’m sure you’ll enjoy hearing what they had to say, and how they have benefitted from EFT tapping.

So let’s dive into these famous endorsements of celebs and well-known personalities.

EFT Tapping Endorsements – Royal Family:

Who would have guessed that both Queen Camilla and the Duchess of Sussex have personally used EFT tapping? Meghan has apparently also encouraged her husband, Harry to use EFT tapping.

More notably, Queen Camilla suffered aerophobia, a fear of flying for a long time. The demands placed upon her as a senior member of the British Royal family meant she had to fly more often to attend engagements with her husband, King Charles. Her Royal Highness has spoken publically, and her biography also documents her use of EFT tapping as an intervention used to conquer her fears of flying. (Source Express)

According to Vanity Fair, Princess Beatrice of York has also used EFT tapping to help overcome dyslexia,

EFT Tapping Endorsements – Celebrities:

In fact, he has personally applied EFT Tapping for more than two decades! He’s on record describing the many benefits including, ‘tapping can immediately lower your stress levels, improve your focus, get rid of anxiety and fear, and help you sleep better.’

Jim Kwik, the Speed Reading Brain Coach and New York Times Best selling author says he makes use of EFT tapping in his regular routine for himself, and his clients who have blocks.

Russell Brand, a well known British comedian, radio host, actor, presenter, activist and campaigner has been open about his use of EFT Tapping.

EFT Tapping Endorsements – Singers:

Renowned pop singer Boy George is a celebrity who definitely makes regular use of EFT tapping. Aside from being spotted on the Jungle sitting quietly and tapping – presumably to stay centered, he also uses EFT tapping whilst saying his morning affirmations (according to his Instagram page).

Personally, I love this lovely insight, and a glimpse into Boy George‘s inner world … a quote from an Instagram reel he shared, revealing his take on EFT tapping for self help and self care. Here’s what he said, “EFT is called emotional freedom tapping, and its just a way of overriding that kind of movie thats running in your head about you – you know, the negative movie in your subconscious. Maybe you don’t have a negative movie. But a lot of people have this movie about who they are, and its all twisted and out of shape. Its just good to kinda remind yourself that you are actually quite amazing. And, that life happens through you, and not to you. Take care of your inner world.”  Isn’t that beautiful?

Another EFT tapping advocate is TV personality, actor and singer Michael Ball. He said on a BBC TV show that tapping helps him to control nerves and distracts his brain before stepping onto stage to perform. While demonstrating how he uses tapping for his performance anxiety, he gleefully said, “it’s fascinating!”  Ball also mentioned that he first saw this tapping technique, and learnt about it from another singer, the late Stephen Gately who was from the pop group, Boyzone.

Singer, Nick Heyword of Haircut 100 when interviewed by Clare Balding on BBC2 radio shared his spiritual awakening. And, how he uses EFT tapping to manage his stress.

As well as assisting with mental clarity and focus to ‘get into the zone’. Tapping also increases relaxation, which is necessary for both optimal performance and recovery too.

EFT Tapping Endorsements – Client Testimonials:

Along with the many different ways in which EFT tapping can be applied. It truly is a malleable technique with many wonderful benefits, not only in health and wellness but also for mental acuity, agility and resilience too.

As is evident from this article, I personally love seeing how EFT tapping is being embraced by different fraternities and industries – from acting, music, sports, health and wellness etc. But, most importantly, in self help and self care. This is where I really see the future of EFT tapping expanding … literally exploding globally!

Since I am English speaking, I haven’t touched on the global reach of EFT tapping. To the best of my knowledge, EFT tapping is now taught in every major language across the globe.

Just imagine a future where every household understands the applications of EFT tapping. Imagine a society where everyone can receive any one of the myriad benefits EFT tapping offers. Is this utopian existence possible? I really do believe it is …

Quite honestly, I don’t think Gary Craig, the founder of Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) ever imagined how far his beloved ‘tapping’ technique would reach. Based on its current trajectory since the early 90’s, onwards and upwards is the only way forwards. Tap .. tap … tap … let’s go!

EFT ‘Tapping’ Client 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)
