EFT Café – 10th May 2017 – Process Mapping For Better Tapping

It’s easy to think of problems, aggravations and blocks as single things – a blob of ‘negative’ emotion that just needs to be tapped away.

But most of our annoyances and hindrances are  more complicated than that.

What, on the face of it, seems to be solid ‘things’ are more often multi-step processes that get us where we don’t want to be.

This is why general tapping on an annoyance or hindrance can be be slow and difficult, we need a way to be more specific to allow tapping into the mechanism to disrupt it.

In this month’s EFT Café, Andy Hunt will present (with the help of some post it notes) Process Mapping, a step by step way of unpacking annoyances and hindrances that make it easier to direct our tapping to the heart of the problem and make better progress

The EFT Café is on Wednesday 10th May 2017 at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne from 7pm to 9pm and costs just £10

EFT Cafe – 12th April 2017 – Decisions, decisions, decisions!

We have to make decisions all the time.

From the moment we awaken to the moment we fall asleep we have to decide what to do next.

Some decisions are easy: Which biscuit should I have with my cup of tea?

Some are much harder: Should I buy this house or that one? Should I take this job? Should I marry this man?

Sometimes there is a still clear voice that lets us know what to do. At other times that voice is drowned out by cacophony of contradictory thoughts, feelings and ideas.

In this month’s EFT Café on Andy Hunt will guide you through a process based on an idea by Gene Monterastelli to help you clear the static around making decisions and allow that still quiet voice to have it’s say.

This process wont be able to make the decision for you, but it will help you get clear about what you want to do.

EFT Cafe – 8th March 2017 – The Top Ten Procedure

Sometimes EFT / Tapping can seem a little bit complicated.

  • How do I decide what is important?
  • How do I choose what to tap on?
  • What scores does this feeling have?
  • How do I know what to tap on next?
  • How do I know when to stop?

The Top Ten Procedure is a simple general purpose tapping protocol that does away with a detailed analysis of the problem state and allows even novice tappers to make good progress in soothing difficult situations.

The process was developed by Charlie Curtis an EFTer with strong NLP and hypnotherapy experience.

This simple routine can be used to work on specific issues or for more general out of sorts feelings.

Join Andy Hunt at this month’s EFT Cafe to find out how to use this simple tapping process.

How To Tap Into The Gifts Of The Shadow

In ‘How can the people who annoy you help you get more from your tapping?’ I wrote about a tapping technique that can help you work with the ‘negative’ parts of the ‘shadow’. Using people’s ability to annoy us we can identify some of the disowned parts of ourselves that need to be released with tapping.

Our shadows are formed in childhood where certain parts of ourselves that are deemed unacceptable by our family, friends or culture are suppressed so that we can get along with the people we are with.

Because these impulses and feelings are so unacceptable to us that we may not know they are there. We project what we cannot own ourselves onto other people. When we can spot the projection, we can use that to access the unacceptable impulses in ourselves and process them with tapping.

So far so good, but there’s more to the Shadow than bad or negative impulses.

EFT Gathering 4×4 – Ilkley, 29th & 30th April 2017

Gwyneth Moss, EFT Master and organiser of the annual EFT Gathering is organising a new form of workshop for anyone who wants to develop their tapping skills.

The 4×4 event is a two day set of four workshops (followed by an optional day long workshop by Gwyneth). There are four presenters, one of whom just happens to be me!

It promises to be a rich weekend of tapping and exploration with four very different presenters. I’m presenting a brief introduction to the Identity Healing process on Sunday afternoon.

Gwyneth says:

Four of your favourite presenters teaching four advanced EFT workshops over a weekend followed by EFT Constellations all day on Monday. Read more https://www.eftgathering.com

EFT 4×4 as we are calling it is the weekend of 29/30 April and the workshops are:

Have you tried surrogate tapping but struggled to find the words? Gwyneth developed the 3 Phase approach to teach ethical and effective surrogate tapping for all. Children love tapping but sometimes its gentler for a friend or parent to offer remote help. Teaching, demonstration, exercises and discussion

School stress is on the increase. Susie’s Gathering presentation was a favourite. Now she shows you how she teaches emotional literacy to 7 year olds. How she gets a whole class tapping and how everyone has lots of fun.

Have you ever struggled to find the words to write about EFT and what you do? Do you feel it should be easier to write a letter or article? Or is there a book in you? Award winning writer Ros Barber has designed this practical workshop for you to tap through your fear, into your inspiration and express your true voice in writing.

Andy Hunt combined his deep knowledge of NLP with tapping to create Identity Healing a suite of processes to gently heal the younger suffering parts of ourselves that are still struggling in our adult lives. Andy’s workshop gives you a taste of what is possible.

Do we live out the stuck emotional patterns of our ancestors? What if tapping could reach into the family field and clear traumas long past? EFT Constellations group work does just that. An experiential day for experienced tappers.

Come and join us at the Clarke Foley Centre in Ilkley. Spring is gorgeous here with bluebells and walks on the moor. https://www.eftgathering.com Book your place at https://regonline.co.uk/eft4x4

hope to see you soon


I’m looking forward to the event, I think it’s going to be fascinating.

Your Life In Their Hands?

There’s so much more to EFT than just tapping

Imagine the scene:

Dave is at home, slumped on his sofa in front of the TV watching a boxed set of ER.

He starts to feel a little unwell, his chest hurts and he has a pain in his left arm.

He has seen enough episodes of ER to know that this is not a good sign.

He phones the emergency services and five minutes later, sirens flashing, a response vehicle from “Instant Paramedics” arrives.

Cautiously, Dave gets to the door and lets the bright eyed and enthusiastic paramedic in.

The paramedic introduces himself as Tim and shows Dave his “Instant Paramedic Certificate”.

Dave is too scared to pay much attention and gingerly lowers himself back onto the sofa.

“So, what happened?” says Tim.

Dave replies “I was watching a rerun of ER and I got this pain in my chest and down my arm”

“Oh that sounds bad”, says Tim, “maybe a cup of tea will help”.

EFT Cafe – 8th February 2017 – To-Do Tapping

To Do Tapping

Now that January has passed and the resolutions are wearing thin it’s time for to look for ways to get things done that don’t just rely on willpower and resolution excitement.

To get things done we have to pass through (at least) four stages between wanting something and doing what needs to be done to get it.

  1. Wanting – Do we really want what we want?
  2. Capability – Are we capable of doing what is necessary?
  3. Deciding – Have we decided to do it?
  4. Willingness – Are we willing to do what it takes to get what we want?

These stages apply whether it is a simple task on our to-do list or a major life goal.

Blocks or resistance in any of those stages can keep us from completing our tasks and achieving our goals

In this month’s EFT Cafe, Andy Hunt will take you through a step by step process to uncover and release any resistances in those stages so you can be ready, willing and able to do what you need to do. If you are the owner of a to-do list that gets longer much more quickly than you can complete the items on it you may find this particularly helpful.

The EFT Café is on Wednesday 8th February 2017 at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne from 7pm to 9pm and costs just £10
