Sometimes when we have anxiety and overthink a lot, we start overthinking HOW we’re thinking – overanalyzing our thought patterns, obsessing about whether our thoughts are normal, or if how we’re thinking is right or wrong, etc. Let’s get into this issue!
(sorry for the mic noises and sniffles!)
In this video, I detail the system I use to help my clients heal from anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, obsessive thoughts, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, PTSD, etc. using a combination of Tapping or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). Here we’re tackling anxiety and some of its many manifestations.

These concepts have actually been mostly disregarded by Western Healing Practices and as they are unveiled in our present times, human procedure is resuming itself to the failed to remember fact that every little thing is Energy and the possibility that this uses us.
In the short time because it's inception by Gary Craig in the 1990's, EFT has provided countless individuals with remedy for all manner of problems and problems, frequently in amazingly double-quick time and also after long and also uncomfortable periods of looking for a treatment. The variety of effective therapies have actually varied from injury as well as abuse, fears, self messing up behaviour patterns, to deep collection emotional problems of anxiety and also anxiety, dependencies, physical health problem, to name yet a few.

It started in 1980, with a psychologist by the name of Roger Callahan, as well as a client with an extreme phobia of water. Mary's concern of water controlled her life and kept her from everyday activities.
Dr. Callahan and also Mary had been working on this issue together for over a year. Mary functioned up the courage to rest within view of the swimming pool at Dr. Callahan's house.
Dr. Callahan had recently been studying standard Chinese medications, and also learning regarding meridians. Bearing in mind that there was an acupuncture factor for the tummy meridian on the cheekbone, he asked her to touch there, believing it could cure her tummy pains.
Mary tapped her cheekbone as directed, as well as this little action altered medical background! The reaction appeared amazing, to both Mary and also Dr. Callahan. Her tummy pains went away. Also extra astonishingly, her phobia of water went away, also! She diminished to the swimming pool and also began sprinkling herself with water, rejoicing in her newly found freedom from fear.
Based on this discovery, Dr. Callahan started a collection of examinations to establish and fine-tune this technique, which he called Thought Area Therapy. Gary Craig trained under Dr. Callahan's tutelage in the 1990's, finding out the treatments for TFT. As time passed, Craig started to observe some problems with TFT, aspects that he saw were unnecessary difficulties.
TFT needed professionals to touch on a particular series of meridians (called an algorithm) for every various issue. Diagnosing the trouble called for a technique called muscular tissue testing, where the expert would certainly gauge the loved one toughness of a muscular tissue, while the person checked out different thoughts or statements.
Gary observed repeated scenarios in which the trouble was inaccurately identified or the expert touched out the meridian factors in the wrong order, yet the individual was still helped. Based upon these observations, he ended that it did not matter where order the meridian points were tapped.
Gary created EFT as a simplified, improved variation of the concepts behind Callahan's TFT. EFT has one basic, easy series of points to tap, no matter what the circumstance.
Because of this, countless individuals have actually utilized Touching for health problems and also to resolve emotional problems. Tapping practitioners have researched the techniques and also educated to tackle more complicated and also challenging cases, and these committed practitioners report even more successful applications everyday. A growing number of people are uncovering as well as discovering Tapping. Numerous are uncovering exactly how Tapping could change their lives.
