Through the years of helping individuals release the negative effects from child abuse I discovered a common trait, many if not most have spent years (sometimes decades) in traditional therapy with little or no permanent release.
I don’t wish to portray any negativity towards other forms of therapy, because in the right setting, and under the right conditions and when used for the correct purpose almost every form of therapy will shine. There are so many areas where modern psychology does wonderful things, and it will continue to help for decades to come.
However for me I personally feel that those types of traditional therapies are extremely limited when it comes to Post Traumatic Stress and or when dealing with trauma suffered from such acts of Child Abuse and Rape.
EFT and Child Sexual Abuse
This is perhaps one of those areas where the human heart doesn’t like to tread. As an EFT Practitioner I have helped many individuals over the years overcome and release mountains of emotional discomfort due to years of abuse at the hands of others.
It does not matter how long you have been living with the emotional trauma left behind from this abuse, you can release mountains of negative emotions in as little as one session. You have the same opportunity to release these emotions at the age of 60 as someone at the age of 20. I felt that I wanted to make this point clear as I get asked that question or that theme of questioning often. This is because potential clients believe that its going to be impossible to let go and that its too late for them. But its never too late.
Yes I know that sometimes it will take more than one session, but that’s ok, if it does then that’s ok.. It sure beats the heck out of sitting down in a small room hashing rehashing and rehashing over the emotional effects for yet another decade of therapy.
Yes EFT Works
Does it really work for child abuse, is it really that quick?
I have seen many clients over the years who are a little hesitant at first, wondering if EFT will simply stir the pot and cause more discomfort. I agree it will surly stir that pot, but it does so in a good way. EFT works by releasing negative emotions, thus if your happy and talking about the wonderful movie you just watched then EFT wont work for the negative effects from childhood. So we do want to stir up some of those emotions, but unlike traditional therapy you wont be rehashing these emotions over and over and over for years, this is because we will be attacking and releasing these emotions in that moment, it really can be that quick.
The fastest session I have ever seen was when I was helping an 18 year old girl overcome the effects of childhood sexual abuse. This beautiful girl had dealt with and had been able to overcome and let go of much of the negative abuse on her own (a huge credit to her). However there were some very defined triggers that would bring it all rushing back and send her spiraling downwards.
After about 15 minutes into the EFT Session she turned and looked at me, then she said “What did you do”, I said “What do you mean”, she responded with “You fixed me, its all gone”.. Naturally I persisted with the session as I wanted to be sure but she had let go of everything. EFT is not about brain washing, she was sitting their talking to me about it, she could remember everything but the emotional discomfort was no longer there.
Of course it’s not always going to be as quick as the case I mentioned above, and you may need more than one session to completely let go.
However my own personal view is this: “You will find that you will release and let go of more negative emotions in just one sitting of EFT than you will ever expect to release with a decade in conventional therapy”
If your sitting there suffering from the effects of Child Abuse then please seek out an EFT Practitioner so you can let go of the negative emotions from your past, let go of that sadness and let some joy back into your life. I can certainly help, but you might prefer someone in your local area, if so then you will find that there are many Great EFT Practitioners all around the globe whom can help you to let go of the negative emotions connected with child abuse..
I will leave you with my question: Is now the right time? Why waste another year living with these negative emotions, why not let them go and start fresh.
I wanted to note that I have received some emails concerning my comments above, in particular to the case study involving the young girl, and in particular to how quick it was for this girl to let go with EFT. The patterns of the emails suggested that I either made it up or picked out a case that did not fit normal patterns..
Please be aware that it wasn’t my intention to promote EFT as a quick fix, and I do mention above that it could take more than one session of EFT. Please note that the above was out of the normal, it was real and it did happen. I was just as shocked as she was (when considering the topic at hand). Have I seen similar wonders on other topics, yes of course I have, in fact my very first customer (before I became an EFT Practitioner) was my niece who had a fear of rosters, she released that completely in about 20 minutes, and there have been many other wonderful events over the years.
