I’ve just added a link to The Art Of NLP, it’s an internet discussion group moderated by Charlie Curtis a hypnotherapist, NLPer and EFTer. It’s an excellent place for amateur and professional EFTers to find out about different techniques and approaches. If you’re interested in how to use this stuff in new and powerful ways it’s a great place to start.
This one-day Level 1 EFT workshop is delivered under the auspices of the AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques). The training is intended for therapists, healers, coaches, counsellors and health care workers wishing to learn this powerful new approach for working with clients, and for individuals who just want to improve the quality of their own and their families’ lives.

Later that evening I was expecting to meet a friend, lets call her Molly, and I idly imagined how our conversation would go.
I had just found out that a plan of mine wasn’t going to work out, and I imagined telling Molly how it had all gone pear shaped.
As we ‘talked’ in my imagination, I imagined her response to the news, somehow it sounded critical and a little patronising. “Hey, just a minute, that’s not fair!” I thought, getting a little annoyed.
Have you ever had imaginary arguments?
Preparing for conversations that are due to happen later, or rehashing conversations and arguments that have already occurred.
A good friend of mine works in a women’s prison. She sent me some examples of the kind of thing she’s using EFT for, here are just a couple (The names have been changed):
- In October she treated Mary for flashbacks & nightmares which occurred two or three times per week. The nightmares were the result of the traumatic memory of her boyfriend nearly killing her. When they started working, Mary rated the level of distress at 7 on the 0 to 10 scale when she thought about that traumatic incident. After two rounds of EFT Mary’s intensity level had dropped to 0, since then there have been no flashbacks or nightmares (it is now December).
- Patricia, had toothache for three days, just prior to the session she was screaming and shouting at a member of staff apparently because of pain and frustration. She rated her distress as 10 out of 10. After one round of EFT that had dropped to 2 out of 10 she reported numbness in the area that had been hurting, and came a couple of hours later requesting another round EFT.
I think that these are impressive results achieved under difficult conditions.
Postscript: Since I wrote this article a year ago my friend has been using EFT to great effect and has even introduced it to the staff as well as the inmates.
I frequently look after Jamie, a good friend’s four year old, either minding him at home, or going out and about on adventures. About six months ago we visited St Mary’s lighthouse at Whitley Bay, perhaps you’ve been there? It’s an impressive sight, a short walk along a causeway gets you to the surrounding buildings and the lighthouse itself. Although it’s no longer a working lighthouse the buildings are open to the public and we’ve been in a couple of times.
This time we wandered through into the tower and Jamie decided he wanted to climb to the top. I wasn’t keen, generally I don’t mind heights, mountains and rocks are fine, most of the other lighthouses I’ve been in are fine; but there’s something about St Mary’s that’s a bit disconcerting, the tower is quite wide at the base and tapers at the top. Perhaps it’s an optical illusion but it seems as though the steps lean in to the drop in the middle, so that you might easily slide off.
