EFT can be helpful at every stage of breast cancer, from the shock of diagnosis – through distressing body changes like hair loss, anxiety about the effects on family, the physical side effects of treatment – to the fear of the cancer returning and what the future may bring. It can be very helpful when the treatment ceases and visitors feel they are on their own.

EFT is ideal for helping to reduce a persons focus on their body and future in a negative way. By dealing with the emotional burdens of the past as well as fear and anxieties for the future, EFT assists in promoting a feeling of trust and wellbeing.

With EFT I always start with where my client is at the moment. What negative emotional and or physical barrier is getting in the way? How would they like to feel? The use of EFT helps to knock down barriers and assist people in worrying less about the past and the future; I often find people are able to live in the moment and focus on what they can control and how they want to feel.

I also teach people affected by breast cancer to use EFT themselves so they can use it at home, just when they need it.

Other common challenges I can help with:

  • Losing control – the confident person who was once in control of the house, family, their career are often left feeling traumatised by the diagnosis and treatment
  • Emotional distress. Constantly stressed, feeling weak, helpless, lost, often putting on a brave face, working off a reserve tank of energy and therefore easily knocked off balance
  • Worrying about every ache or pain
  • Emotional stress: shock, fear, guilt, anger, sadness, anxiety, panic, self-pity, grief etc
  • Finding it difficult to ask for help. Unable put themselves first by sometimes saying ‘no’
  • Negative body image

By helping individuals release not on the past, but also their fears and worries about the future, it brings to the surface the essence of them; their talents, strengths and spirit. This allows them to take small positive steps along a new path, enabling them to feel optimistic and excited about the future.
