EFT – a successful treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

EFT is one of the best  treatments available for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).  It has been shown to be very helpful for people suffering the effects of PTSD including war veterans, ex-service men and women, and survivors of childhood and other abuse.

The symptoms of PTSD include

  • re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks and/or nightmares
  • hypervigilance (described as “like being permanently on red alert”)
  • increased arousal—such as difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • exaggerated startle response
  • avoidance of thought and activities associated with the trauma
  • outbursts of anger
  • irritability
  • difficulty concentrating
  • poor memory
  • feeling detached
  • being unable to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable
  • intrusive thoughts

It is normal for the symptoms to continue for many years after the original trauma.

EFT is a simple, easy to use technique which can completely relieve all the symptoms of PTSD and restore peace of mind, allowing the person to continue with their lives unencumbered by the past traumatic memories.  The treatment takes place over a number of sessions (often as few as 3 sessions) and involves tapping with the fingertips on “meridian points” (which are part of the Chinese medicine meridian system).

Following is a video which demonstrates how EFT helped a group of war veterans:

I have worked extensively with EFT in helping people to overcome PTSD following all kinds of traumatic events.

EFT for phobias and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Did you know that EFT is one of the best natural treatments for PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and for phobias?


Phobias can stop us doing things that we would otherwise enjoy, and in some cases can severely limit our lives.  Phobias often begin with a event in childhood, or can be learned from a parent.  Sometimes there is no known cause for a phobia.

EFT is one of the best natural phobia treatments that exist. It has been used successfully for all kinds of phobia, fears, anxiety and panic attacks. No matter how the phobia started or how deep the fear, EFT can help.

Thousands of people have successfully used EFT to resolve phobias. Often one or two sessions of EFT are all that is needed to remove long-standing phobias. I have been able to help people to resolve and become free of the following phobias, and to live fuller and more enriching lives:

  • confined spaces (claustrophobia)
  • open spaces or going outside (agoraphobia)
  • spiders
  • bee stings
  • social anxiety
  • flying
  • touch / physical contact
  • heights
  • travelling on escalators
  • germs / cleanliness
  • and many more


EFT has proven to be one of the most effective treatments for releasing and healing trauma.  It has a very successful record in permanently removing the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which include panic attacks, flashbacks, nightmares, hypervigilance (being on “red alert”), extreme distress and anxiety.

To this end the following people have often greatly benefited from using EFT:

–         war veterans

–          ex service men and women (police, fire service etc)

–          survivors of childhood abuse

–          survivors of car crashes and other accidents

The treatment is simple, safe and non-invasive, and has been shown many times over to permanently remove symptoms which may otherwise continue for years.  The treatment releases the trauma and its effects from the body’s energy system as well as from the mind in a COMPLETELY PAINLESS way.  The treatment gives a deep and permanent healing, so that flashbacks, nightmares and other symptoms do not return.

Rowana qualified as a reflexologist in 1997, having undertaken a training accredited by the Association of Reflexologists, and has been in practice ever since.  She is an Advanced Practitioner of EFT, and is trained in counselling. She has specialised in helping people to heal and free themselves from past trauma.

EFT – Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT is successfully used in the treatment of PHOBIAS, PTSD, ANXIETY AND PANIC ATTACKS, allergies, insomnia, and many other conditions.  The treatment involves tapping on major meridian points with the fingertips.  These are natural and gentle techniques which can easily be learned by anyone.  Often 1-3 sessions are all that is needed.


Reflexology is an ancient healing art, which treats the whole body by applying gentle pressure to precise reflex points in the feet.  Reflexology brings about a state of deep relaxation, stimulates the body’s own healing processes and helps us return to our natural state of balance and wellbeing. It is helpful for many conditions and is a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating treatment.
