INFORMED CONSENT ABOUT EFT (EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES)
As part of the information provided on this website, you understand that you will be introduced to a modality identified as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) which is part of a newly-emerging family of energy-based coaching, therapy, and self-development techniques. This family of techniques is variably referred to as Energy Psychology, Energy Meridian Techniques and/or Energy Methods. Included in this family are a variety of alternative and complementary techniques that are believed to manipulate and modify imbalances within a person’s energy system as well as resolve limitations imposed by those imbalances on an individual’s thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
The premise of this family of techniques is that releasing disturbances in the body’s electromagnetic field as well as its subtle energy field is beneficial for physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Many of the techniques in this family, including EFT, use gentle tapping on selected surface points of the face and body that are part of the ancient Chinese meridian system while holding the mind focused on the disturbing situation.
While EFT has produced excellent clinical results for relieving emotional and physical distress and is supported by a significant and growing body of scientific research, it is still a relatively new approach and should be considered to be in the experimental stage. Western academic and medical communities have not yet fully researched the risks and benefits and so you must take complete responsibility for your use of EFT.
Information provided about EFT or any of the family of energy-based techniques on this website is not intended to represent that EFT is used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or psychological disorder. Nor is EFT in any way a substitute for medical or psychological treatment. You are encouraged to seek professional advice as appropriate before making health decisions.
Although Carol Baxter is a certified EFT practitioner and has extensive experience as a coach, Carol is not a regulated mental health or medical professional in her home province of Ontario, Canada.
Without such training, novices can unwittingly open a door to emotional or physical sensations or unresolved memories that they do not have the training or professional support to process. Even though basic EFT training is freely accessible, you are strongly advised to pursue professional quality training and guidance in order to use EFT with others or with yourself beyond a very surface level.
