Tonight on UK television EFT hit Harley Street.
(The Private Life of Harley Street, BBC2, 15th August 2005, 8.00pm).
Report by Mary L.R. Jones, a UK EFT Practitioner
For non-UK readers, Harley Street is practically a by-word for credibility and prestige within the medical and caring professions. Harley Street in London is where doctors and therapists aspire to run a practice, and where patients and clients aspire to be able to get treatment.
On tonight’s episode hypnotherapist Jenny Frances was working with a client with a phobia of plants and leaves. On a scale of 0 to 100 she was at 100 just thinking about a rhubarb leaf.
Sadly we didn’t see too much of the actual session, perhaps 1 or 2 minutes in all – but what we did see was Jenni introducing EFT to her client and the client tapping on the EFT meridian points while Jenny guided her to focus on different aspects of the plant (e.g. “brushing against you”).
Of course we don’t know what aspects were dealt with during the session but the sample appeared to show EFT being used solely on the clients “triggers” rather than any belief change work.
At the end of the first session the client reported her intensity while thinking about a leaf as “about 50”. This is great news for the client. But even better news for the acceptance of EFT into the mainstream.

Experts are calling on the NHS to start using a new self-help technique, called tapping, after its effectiveness in treating a number of conditions was proved.
The technique, which involves tapping acupressure points on the head and hands, is showing promise as an effective form of therapy for anxiety, depression and anger. It is also known as the emotional freedom technique (EFT).
Researchers at Staffordshire University are leading research into the effectiveness of EFT in the UK.
EFT Downunder have some downloadable articles on their website
While EFT has produced remarkable clinical results, it is still be considered to be in the experimental stage and each user must take complete responsibility for their own use of it.
