Anxieties, Fears, Phobias

The treatment of phobias is where EFT got its reputation for ‘One minute wonders’, that is, complete cures that take place in minutes. Phobias are the simplest of traumas because they usually stem from a single, isolated hurt. Typically, you don’t like them or the behavior they cause and they have not become part of your identity. Often they can be completely collapsed in 1 – 2 sessions, leaving you free for the first time in years to do what you want.

Traumas and PTSD

Traumas and PTSD generally arise out of bigger, repeated hurts, so they have often become part of your sense of who you are and what the world is. When we completely collapse the trauma of a specific traumatic incident, you will experience complete healing for the first time, in contrast to the managing and containing that, up to now, has probably been the best you could hope for. Your nervous system will relax back down to the ground state, possibly for the first time in decades. As you see that complete healing is possible, your attitude toward the trauma (and toward what is possible in working with EFT) will likely go through a profound shift, and you will begin suggesting other specific incidents to collapse with EFT.

After succussfully collapsing the traumas from less than a dozen such incidents, you will likely find that your whole history of abuse has lost its compelling power. Instead of organizing your behavior and defining your identity, it has become ‘just something that happened’, and ‘not who I am’. You will finally be free of it.

Addictions

With addictions, you’re facing a more complicated situation. The fundamental thing about addictions is that the addictive behavior (your “drug of choice”) is being used to tranquilize some underlying anxiety. It does not erase the underlying anxiety, but only soothes it temporarily, which is why the behavior must be repeated over and over. Typically, you do not even feel the core anxiety as it rises toward conscious awareness, you just get the feeling you need another dose of the drug/behavior that soothes it.

I use EFT to find and collapse the core anxiety that is driving your addiction. This is much more effective than other treatment methods because it dissolves the issue that is fueling your compulsion. Unless the core anxiety is collapsed, you will, at best, simply substitute a new addictive behavior for the old one. It may have less severe side effects, but it is still an addiction. This is why we see so many people in Alcoholics Anonymous who are heavily into caffeine or cigarettes or sugar. Same process, different drug.

In addition to collapsing the core anxiety, we also must deal with the cravings and the situations that stimulate them, the particular side effects of the addictive behavior (such as chemical changes in the body/mind caused by a drug), the social effects (“My sister will hate me if I’m slimmer than her”), the habit patterns, and all the ways the addiction is used as an identity structure (“I’m a smoker”, I’m a drinker”, “I’m a runner”). These are all parts of the addiction and they all need to be addressed and collapsed with EFT to create a complete and lasting cure. This takes more time than the simpler situations above, but progress is still regular and measurable and can often be remarkably rapid.
