Emotional Freedom Techniques

Developed by Gary Craig, EFT is a meridian therapy that, in brief, works by tapping on specific points on the body – those used by acupuncturists – to correct imbalances to the body’s energy system; a form of energy psychology it has also been described as ‘acupuncture without needles’.

EFT delivers much faster results than many people expect. As far as some people’s logic is concerned, fast results must be temporary but this is not the case with EFT and these ‘quick fixes’ are lasting. Whether your issue has been with you for years, days or hours, it is possible to release it as rapidly as is appropriate for you.


EFT benefits include:

  • no long drawn out “tell me your life story” requirement
  • no pills, creams, lotions etc.
  • no necessity to painfully re-live past traumatic events
  • it takes a fraction of the time of other talk therapies and results are often seen in minutes
  • it is easy to learn how to use

EFT can be applied to virtually any issue including: addictions, asthma, constipation, IBS, fears, habits, phobias, traumatic memories, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, physical pain – ranging from mild discomfort to chronic pain, headaches, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, psoriasis, insomnia, morning sickness, PMT, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, sweating, multiple sclerosis, lupus, grief, panic attacks, guilt, anxiety…the list is endless.

Used routinely to help survivors of sexual abuse, terrorism, war-related trauma and violent attacks, EFT removes the intensity of the experience, which enables clients to truly move on and enjoy the rest of their lives – they don’t forget what happened but it no longer adversely impacts their decision-making, belief system and any other aspect of their life – they have emotional freedom from it.

In the workplace, EFT is used, amongst other things, to remove the fear of public speaking, address stress-related symptoms, performance issues and increase self-confidence. It can also be used to improve golf, tennis and other sports performance by identifying and then removing blocks to success.

No therapy works for everyone and EFT is not perfect, it does not work 100% of the time but when it does, the results can be profound and it often works when nothing else will.

In all of my work my professional focus is on helping my clients to release their emotional pain as quickly as is appropriate for them and, for me, EFT is an invaluable tool.

I have been an EFT Trainer since 2006 and teach EFT Workshops from Introduction to EFT through to EFT Advanced Practitioner.

As a therapist I was familiar with EFT and have used it with clients but could not do it for myself. In a short space of time I have cleared so much; Barbara’s direct approach helped me to get to the root of the problem. During our work together she has been both caring & supportive. EFT has had a profound effect on my life, I feel more in control, have more confidence & have moved on from the past.

CM, Complementary Therapist

Absolutely amazing. Barbara helped me to release an issue in minutes that had been with me all my life. I did not believe that this was possible.

OP, Student

I was suffering from acute pain in my eyes due to having ulcers on my corneas. Barbara worked with me using EFT to relieve the pain with amazing results in just over 1 hour. She was kind, gentle and very committed to reducing my pain. I can’t thank her enough.

BL-D, Retail Worker

10 years ago I suffered a serious skiing injury & had to be carried off a mountain. Although I was able to ski afterwards, my performance was stilted. Working with Barbara Guest made me realise how much residual pain & trauna I was still carrying & how this was holding me back. Since our session, during which I re-connected with that pain and released it, I felt great & was able to ski more naturally – friends asked if I had been taking lessons secretly! I can only put this down to the work I have done with Barbara.

GE, Managing Director

I first went to see Barbara because I had psoriasis on my elbows. It had become really bad, very itchy and extremely raw. By the end of the first session we had established the probable cause & the itching had ceased. I was so impressed with the result that I saw Barbara again to conquer my fear of water and inability to learn to swim. This was in January and by May I was swimming. Barbara is a calm & competent therapist who inspires you with the confidence to sweep away old perceptions. The results speak for themselves. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Barbara to anyone who needs help for any reason.

DS, Businesswoman

I had recently divorced my partner of 12 years. My head was not in a good place & I was run down both physically & mentally. Consequently my performance at work was affected.

The results from working with Barbara were noticeable very quickly. I became happier in myself & got back my smile. Work is back on track & the people around me also noticed the changes & commented about how different I was. This is the second time I have worked with Barbara (and EFT) addressing challenges that others describe as some of the most stressful things an individual has to endure. On both occasions the results that I have achieved from working with Barbara are transformational.

CP, Business Owner

My chocolate cravings completely vanished, this was an hour well spent.
