EFT and Alcohol Dependency

dandilion clocks

Emotional Freedom Technique is a simple, non evasive technique which you can do alone or with a therapist to banish your desire for alcohol for ever . I would suggest you do work with a qualified therapist at least initially.

How Can Emotional Freedom Technique Help?

With EFT you can wipe out your desire for needing a drink. You can change how you think and feel about alcohol and anything related to drink, such as buying, friends you drink with, TV adverts, going to the pub.

Fear of Loneliness

If you drink with other people, tapping on your dread of not drinking any more and loosing  friends you drink with is a great place to start.

Want to Drink?

With Emotional Freedom Technique you can wipe out all of your triggers that kick start your drinking habit, each and every day.

Your Addiction to Alcohol – It Is Not What You Think It Is!

With EFT you can cast out your addition to boozing altogether. EFT will allow you to also find and dissolve the real reason why you drink. Very often you started drinking for a reason that you may have now forgotten, but the reason still controls  you.

Boozing Is Not Your Identity

Calling yourself an alcoholic, keeps you an alcoholic. Begin tapping on your identity and you will quickly become known as the person who use to drink. You can become the person you want to be.

Sabotage Your Wanting of Alcohol

With EFT you can end your wanting to have a drink every day.  Now is the time to use the same thoughts and feelings that keep you drinking to keeping you not drinking.

Affirmations For Your Future

Statements on their own do not work.  With EFT you can kill off the little voice in side of you, that stops statements working for you. Once you do that. Your statements take on a power of their own.

There are many EFT therapists like myself who have experience of working in this field,  you are sure to find one in your local area.


Basic Intro to EFT

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a gentle and non-intrusive, a simple technique which your practitioner can teach you to use yourself whenever you need to.

EFT is sometimes called acupuncture without the needles. It involves tapping on meridian points with the fingertips. Issues including health problems are often greatly reduced or disappear completely after only one or two sessions of EFT.

Using EFT involves acknowledging the issue and then tapping with your fingers on specific acupressure points with your fingers. For example if you still carry a feeling of very deep disappointment following an event you are asked to think of that event and  notice how you feel, in other words you are ‘tuning into‘ the issue. But you do not have to relive the event that caused the deep disappointment. You just have to be aware that the negative feeling is there. Having therefore ‘tuned in’ to it, you are shown which acupressure points to tap, and using your own words you voice the issue. Verbalising also helps to remove the charge ‘emotion’ from the system.

You are then asked to think about the person or situation again and check how you feel. You will notice a reduction in the intensity of the feeling. If it’s not completely gone then the EFT practitioner repeats the process, bringing the intensity down each time until full balance is restored. All this is done with you fully conscious whilst sitting normally in a chair.

Another 5 Causes of Exam Anxiety

exam anxiety

One of the reasons I like showing EFT to students who have exam anxiety is I know they are learning a technique that will see them through many situations in the future. Rarely are we afraid of exams, the fears are concerns regarding the outcome of the exam.

  1. The learner may historically have experienced obtaining poor grades in an exam which has instilled a fear of ‘failure’.
  2. Fear of their mind going blank during the exam and not being able to remember what they have learnt.
  3. The fear of  being asked questions they have not prepared for.
  4. Fear of not obtaining the level of result required for their next step such as entrance into their career of choice
  5. Fear of success leading to university education which will lead to student debt/leaving home/leaving friends and family

5 Causes of Exam Anxiety

One of the reasons I like showing EFT to students who have exam anxiety is I know they are learning a technique that will see them through many situations in the future. Rarely are we afraid of exams, the fears are concerns regarding the outcome of the exam.

1. Fear of feeling stupid if they do not perform well.
2. Fear of not performing as well as other family members – often siblings and cousins.
3. Fear of embarressment if friends get better grades.
4. Pressure real or percieved from family members to do well – often the pressure is felt to be applied by parents.
5. Fear of letting someone down, even if that person does not apply pressure to the student.

Hypnotherapy – Brief Introduction


I have been a qualified clinical hypnotherapist since 2001 and am still amazed at the wonderful results I see from this therapy

Hypnosis is a natural and effective technique for accessing the subconscious mind – the key to unleashing an individual’s potential, changing unwanted habits and behaviours and finding solutions to problems and concerns When we become totally engrossed in something like reading a book or looking at a beautiful landscape or just sit and daydream and everything else seems to just fade away we are experiencing something very similar to being in a hypnotic state.

Hypnotherapy – how does it work?

Hypnosis is a very safe and natural state that we all go into easily several times each day. Every one of us passes through a dreamlike state similar to hypnosis just before we fall asleep and just at the point when we awaken. Anyone who has driven somewhere and on arriving realises they cannot remember part of the journey will recognise the altered state of awareness one experiences in hypnosis. During hypnotherapy the therapist attempts to address the client’s subconscious mind in order for the individual to make the required changes to their behaviours and or thought patterns.

Hypnotherapy can be used for a wide variety medical and psychological conditions ranging from anxiety to weight issues.



Q. Is hypnosis brainwashing?

A. No, absolutely not. A clinical hypnotherapist will make suggestions to the person who is undergoing hypnosis, the suggestions will be centred around helping the individual make the changes they wish to make to help them reach their personal goals and aspirations. These suggestions will only be taken on board by the individual if it is what they truly want. Nobody can influence a person undergoing hypnosis to behave in a manner that is against their ethical and moral framework.

Q. Is the therapist controlling client’s thinking?

A. No, when you undergo hypnosis you learn the ultimate in self-control
Q. Will I be asleep during the session?

A. Some people are so relaxed when they are under hypnosis they fall asleep, that is fine because the sub-conscious mind still continues to listen to the therapist’s voice but hypnosis is not a general anaesthetic in other words you are not ‘knocked out’, nor are you immobilised. You can move, sneeze, cough and scratch an itch. You hear sounds around you can hold a conversation with your therapist and you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state if you wish to.

Q. What does it feel like to be hypnotised?

A.  It is different for different people. Each person has their unique experience. Some people remember the suggestions made by the therapist, some do not, some people see vivid imagery, some people allow their minds to drift off following their own thoughts, some people feel very light and floats whilst others experience a deep, heavy restfulness.

EFT and Children


EFT has been used with children for everything from anger, trauma and bed-wetting to fears, behaviour problems and pain. The world can be a very threatening place for a child who is afraid of the dark or dogs or the dentist.

Not surprisingly, many of these issues are the same as those reported by adults.

If learnt in childhood EFT can become a familiar tool that can used any time they need as they grow into adulthood.

Unresolved childhood issues do, of course, hang around for adulthood. Wouldn’t it be nice to resolve them early?

EFT is non-threatening, non-invasive and children can actually enjoy it!!!
