| | An EFT success story:
Just for an example....
In my 25 years of practice as a psychotherapist, I never encountered a person with Dental Phobia as severe as "Erin." Erin came to me over a period of years with many other issues, and often mentioned that she had a "terrible, dark secret" that she never told anyone. |
Finally, several months ago, Erin told me that she was suicidal over her problem and HAD to tell me. She was certain that I would be so "horrified" that I would never want to work with her again.
Her terrible secret was that she hadn't been to a dentist since she was forced to go as a child FORTY YEARS ago, and now all of her teeth were very loose. One of her top front teeth was hanging by a thread and she promised herself years ago that when that particular tooth fell out, she would have no choice except to kill herself.
I thank God for EFT because without that magnificent tool, I would not have been able to help Erin. With traditional therapies, it would have taken months, if not YEARS to help her with her phobia. Even then, I don't know if she would ever have been able to face walking into a dentist's office.
By using EFT on the double issue of her enormous fear of going to a dentist plus her equally intense SHAME of not going to a dentist, I was able to accompany Erin to a dentist's office only TWO WEEKS after she first told me about her problem.
