Hi Everyone,

Although no one is claiming a complete cure for this psychiatric patient, his progress with EFT should be evident. Thanks to Sally Knight from the UK for this instructive article.

Dear Gary,

I work in a psychiatric hospital in the UK as an Aromatherapist and Reiki Healer.

Gordon (not his real name) was admitted with severe paranoia relating to back pain (which was investigated but no apparent cause could be found).  He had numerous sessions of ECT (electro convulsive therapy), medication and attended for frequent aromatherapy sessions.  As his stay in hospital continued, his physical appearance deteriorated, he believed he was unable to walk (even though he was walking) and his mood swung from constantly pleading for help, to anger and long bouts of crying. 

When Gordon attended for his Aromatherapy session, I suggested we try a new technique I had learned that might help him deal with his anger (his hands were cut and bleeding where he had been punching the wall).  We started with the full basic recipe:

Even though I feel so angry I have to punch the wall, I am a good man (Gordon at this point could not say he deeply accepted himself).  The reminder phrase we used was deeply angry.

Gordon then said it was his fault he was feeling the way he did and this frightened him.

We then tapped as above with:

Even though I am scared to accept who I am

Even though I get angry if I accept who I am

Even though I get confused with my feelings I am doing the best that I can

Even though I know I am doing this to myself I accept who I am

Even though I punch the wall I accept who I am

Even though this scares me I am a good man

Even though I think I can’t walk I am doing the best I can

Even though I get frustrated with how I feel I am a good man

Even though I am scared of my feelings I am doing the best I can

Even though I can’t help myself sometimes I am a good man.

The third round continued with two hands tapping, wording the same, but this time Gordon was able to say that he deeply and completely accepted himself.

I purposely kept the session as simple as possible as Gordon is in his 60’s, is unable to read or write and had no understanding of energy work.  Two weeks later he was allowed home leave for a weekend and the following week I met him on the ward and hardly recognised him.  He was dressed smartly with clothes he had brought from home and he told me he was being discharged that morning.  In his hand was his house key which he showed me and his words were: You don’t know what this means to me, I am a good man.

Gordon had been in the hospital for two years and when he said “I am a good man” the day he left, I knew EFT had worked a miracle in one session.
