EFT and SET can be extremely effective with treating Fears, Phobias and Anxiety.
EFT evolved from Thought Field Therapy, which was created by US clinical psychologist Roger Callahan. Callahan discovered that stimulating acupressure / energy points lead to psychological relief for an anxious client, and through experimentation was able to discover a series of useful points.
Gary Craig, who studied with Callahan, identified a comprehensive set of “all purpose” energy points that could be applied to treat any emotional problem. He called this Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and achieved excellent results with this approach on a wide range of emotional as well as physical problems.
EFT and SET has been successfully applied to treat a wide range of emotional problems and issues, including anxiety, fears, phobias, trauma, along with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, grief, anger, guilt, etc.
A Research study by Steve Wells, Kathryn Polglase, Dr. Henry B. Andrews, Patricia Carrington and Harvey A. Baker found EFT to effectively treat specific phobias in just a 30-minute treatment session, and the results were superior to an alternative deep breathing treatment.
