Feelings can be tricky.

Sometimes they can be both overwhelming and complicated, which can make them hard to work with using standard tapping process.

My friend and colleague Masha Bennett created ‘Doodle Tapping’ seven years ago to help her clients process difficult emotional states. She recently shared this simple process with me and I’ve since used it for myself and with clients with surprising results.

In this week’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will demonstrate ‘Doodle Tapping’ and how it can be used in a variety of situations (all materials will be provided).

The EFT Cafe is from 7pm – 9pm on the 8th May at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre in Newcastle and costs £10.

AAMET Has Become EFT International

EFT International Logo

AAMET International (AAMET) has changed its name to EFT International (EFTi)

AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques) was formed in the late 1990s as an organisation promoting a variety of new therapeutic techniques including Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

Over time AAMET became established as a registered charity in the UK and the largest international organisation of EFT Practitioners and Trainers.

To reflect the international nature and the focus on EFT in April of 2019 AAMET International was renamed EFT International (EFTi)

This doesn’t mean that AAMET has gone away. If you trained with an AAMET trainer in the past your certificates and accreditation (If you have any) are still valid.

Future trainings and certificates will now be under the umbrella of EFT International.

EFT Cafe – 10th April 2019 – The 5 Whys

Tapping Into The Root Cause Of Problems

When we are stuck in a problem, or stuck again in an old familiar problem, it’s hard to know what is causing it (the core issue).

If you don’t know what the cause of problem is how can you approach it with tapping?

That’s where the ‘5 Whys’ can help. This process was created in the 1950s by Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries, to uncover the root cause of manufacturing problems. This simple process turns out to be surprisingly good at uncovering the root causes of personal challenges. Once you know what the root cause you can apply EFT/Tapping more effectively.

In this month’s EFT Cafe on Wednesday 10th April 2019 Andy Hunt will be demonstrating how to combine the 5 Whys with tapping to get to the parts other processes don’t reach.

The EFT Cafe is held at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne from 7pm to 9pm and costs just £10.

EFT Cafe – March 13th 2019 – Failing Your Way To Success.

Even though we all want to achieve things, we are all skilled at getting in our own way.

Most of the blocks to our progress are unconscious and most of the ways we could make progress are also unconscious.

In this week’s EFT Cafe, Andy Hunt will demonstrate a three part tapping process designed to simultaneously neutralise the some of the blocks that hold us back and help us find new ways to go forward.

The EFT Cafe is held at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne from 7pm to 9pm and costs just £10.

Repair and Prepare: Tapping Your Way Out Of Repetitive Stress

How many times have you had the thought “Oh no, not again!”?

In my pre-EFT life I was a software engineer in a small image analysis company. I was given the responsibility of supporting a project that had several technical problems.

Every couple of weeks I’d get a call from our customer who was (rightly) concerned about the lack of progress we were making. By accident or design he knew exactly how to make me feel bad so that I would promise repairs and add new features to make up for the lack of progress.

Each call was more painful than the last one, as time went on I came to dread them. I was so knotted up with tension whenever he called I was surprised I could still string sentences together.

Each call made the next one worse. It was a vicious circle I couldn’t get out of, if only I’d had EFT then.

A lot of our daily stressors have a kind of repetitive quality, it’s the same thing over and over again.

Tapping: Natural, Powerful and Safe?

There is a common belief among tappers that even though EFT/Tapping is powerful, it is safe because it is natural.

If you tap on an issue nothing bad can happen because EFT only uses the body’s natural self-soothing mechanisms.

What could be safer?

Unfortunately being natural doesn’t make you safe: tigers, arsenic, Great White Sharks, Deadly Nightshade and lightning are all perfectly natural and perfectly capable of killing you.

Being natural is no guarantee of safety.

It gets worse.
