Last fall I started working toward my CC and ADV certificates in EFT. I have been so thrilled with the improvements it has made in emotional, physical, and achievement areas of my life. We have had much success in our family with it.

Even though my children have heard multiple stories and we have had our own successes, there still tends to be a reluctance in some of them and I couldnt wait to try it with them with their sports.

They went through basketball without taking advantage of EFT. But when tennis started, my oldest came and asked me to help him. So, as the season started we sat down for a "session" and he told me all the things he felt needed improvement. His footwork. Playing at the net. His serve. And tossing the ball up and getting it just right before he hit it. We worked on each of those with some of the following statements, using the short cut method. We spent close to an hour.

Even though I have a hard time approaching the net…
Even though my footwork stinks…
Even though I have this toss problem…
Even though my serve needs improving…

I am happy to report that he feels much better about his abilities, he appears to be playing better and he has been ranked number one or two the whole season at our school. He did not come near that last year.

Enter son #2. He came home from tennis workouts (everyone plays each other and they are ranked) and told me that he had played a particularly difficult friend (not skill, personality) and that he decided he was going to tap about it. He told me he did not want to be embarassed by tapping all over, so he only tapped on his karate chop point. The only setup he shared with me was, "even though I dont want to lose to______"…

And what a difference it made! My son can also be a little volatile at times, but he reported that he did not get angry, throw his racket, smash balls over the fence, or swear in his mind. Further, even though he lost to this friend, he was able to shake his hand and tell him it was a good game.

Instead of the usual complaints and anger I hear from him about frustrating game situations, I heard a maturing young man tell me how he conquered his frustrations, with just a little bit of tapping on one point! Win or lose, this comes through as a great success in my book.

EFT is a very flexible improvement tool that can be used for just about everything. Although I try to remain true to my training, I am using my version of it here. I have had extraordinary results and urge you to contact me for more information. I don't have medical or psychology training, but offer EFT as a teacher and coach.
