What is EFT? and  Research Links

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a technique created by Gary Craig. He discovered that as you tap on certain meridian points while expressing your thoughts and feelings about stressful events and circumstances, it sends a calming signal to your amygdala, which is part of the limbic (emotional regulation) system in your brain. Your brain can now send a new signal that deactivates the stress hormones that put you in a state of fight, flight or freeze in the first place.

With many different EFT tapping variations, your healing journey can begin in a safe zone called a tolerance window. This allows you to become more powerfully centred, calm and collected in your life, leading to better decisions, relationships and health. 

Here's a Research Review: Psychological and psychosocial treatments for children and young people with post‐traumatic stress disorder: a network meta‐analysis:


Trauma‐focused cognitive behavioural therapy, in particular individual forms, appears to be most effective in the management of PTSD in youth. EMDR is effective but to a lesser extent. Supportive counselling does not appear to be effective. Results suggest a large positive effect for emotional freedom technique, child–parent psychotherapy, combined TF‐CBT/parent training, and meditation, but further research is needed to confirm these findings as they were based on very limited evidence.

What is your greatest desire?

-What if you had the courage to liberate your inner child’s wounds without re-traumatization? In what ways would your life change?

-Feeling unworthy, anxious and stressed? Are you brave and willing to release these emotions and transform your life?

What benefits can you get from EFT?

  • What if you could easily choose not to be angry, stressed, guilty, shameful, unworthy?

  • Do any of these emotions make you do or say things that you regret later?

  • Are you sick of people telling you to just let go and forgive? Maybe you’ve been holding on to these grudges, emotions for so long, you can’t let go or don't know how to truly forgive others and/or yourself...

  • Forgiveness means having the courage to heal your past, look at your present, and envision your new future.

  • Are you brave enough to examine the dirt and take responsibility to release your past, which may have kept you stuck for so long, sometimes even as far back as your childhood? 

  • Is your inner peace more important than your past?

  • Are you ready to take back your power to be you, instead of nourishing that anger, stress, guilt, shame, and unworthiness?

  • Or do you just want to wait for a miracle that may never happen? 

  • How long have you been waiting? And what is the cost of this waiting, on your emotions, life, finances, relationships, and health?

  • Are you ready to choose a journey towards inner peace? 

  • Yes, it’s a choice, to claim back YOUR POWER! Are you ready to reclaim inner peace in your life?


* If so EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) may be just what you need to guide you on your healing journey *


  • Feeling stressed? Sick and tired of your life being led by stress? Is there a way to live stress-free?

  • Are you ready to be brave and courageous enough to see what stresses you out?

  • What are your triggers? Are they really yours or are they patterns you picked up/learned from your parents or society and adopted without realizing it?

  • Are you ready to release, dissipate and liberate your triggers and your past, in order to see life differently?

  • Are you feeling worthy enough to take the first step? YES! How would it feel? AMAZING 🦋


*It’s your time to start your transformation 🦋 with EFT.



Here are some more aspects that can trigger your brain into the fight, flight, freeze, or fawn mode:


  • Is shame leading your life? Doing everything for others so they will accept you for whom they want you to be?

  • Do you wish you could choose what is best for you without shame?

  • Are you ready to transform your decision-making process as you release and dissipate your old thinking patterns and regrets? 

  • Are you willing to put in the time and effort it will take to get a sense of inner safety and freedom?

  • Feeling guilty all the time? Are your decisions based on what others will think of you? 

  • I invite you to have the courage to choose to be yourself! Are you ready and willing to release and dissipate limiting beliefs and self-defeating patterns?

  • Depressed? So many different reasons can be underlying this issue!

  • Let me ask you one question. Are you addicted to putting pressure on yourself? No... take a pause and be courageous enough to look at yourself closely. Not easy? I totally agree!!!

  • Luckily for you, once you notice your patterns, you are halfway there! YES! Let me help you unearth your patterns and reach new understandings to transform your life.


Transformation is essential in order to be liberated from depression, anxiety and other stuck emotions. Allow me to provide you with a safe forum for releasing your negative emotions and patterns, and provide you with healing tools you can apply in your day-to-day life.

Christine  Bernat 's  Journey

My health took a turn for the worse at the end of December 2016, when"I crashed"! I slept literally 16 to 20 hours a day and still had no energy. In January 2017 I was diagnosed with major depression and burnout. After 3 weeks of sleeping, I decided it was enough. I needed to start getting my act together. As I was coming down the stairs with my overfilled laundry basket, I missed the last step. I blacked out, only to come to, sitting on the steps with excruciating pain in my right foot and bruising in my lower back, scrapes on my arm and a sore elbow. I waddled to the couch, got some ice to put on my body. I never even considered going to the hospital. I was raised to be tough. You don't go to the hospital! I did, however, go see the osteopath. 

EFT came into my life that spring. I found free EFT sessions and tapped along. They helped me feel better, although my health was still in jeopardy. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in July 2017, and I tried to go back to work in August 2017, but in September 2017, my psychologist diagnosed me with PTSD. That is when I decided to take an EFT Health Mastery course. In October 2017, my health took a turn for the worse again and I had to stop working in my longtime career as an elementary school teacher. Walking was now becoming difficult and so was decision-making. By the end of October 2017, I started taking medication upon my doctor's insistence. I blamed the medication for turning me into a Zombie for six weeks, although I was too numbed-out to be scared. It was difficult to read, to speak in complete sentences and even to drive. I had to wear sacral-lumbar support to stand for more than five minutes. Luckily, by mid-November, my psychologist referred me to a kinesitherapist. She helped me see I was just getting worse with the medication. That was the beginning of my amazing journey to reconnect with my soul! 

In June 2018, I ended a two-and-a-half-year toxic relationship!

I still remember a Wednesday night in February 2019. After waking up in the middle of the night, I heard in what seemed like a dream, the name Lindsey. So fed up with being woken up in the middle of the night for the past week or more, I googled, found and decided to join Deborah Lindsey's EFT course at the International Metaphysical University (IMU). The rest is history! Wow, I had no idea how much my deep emotions, hurts from my youth, and traumas were impacting my health. As I worked my way through the course, I felt better and better and decided to pursue this path of healing as a career. 

Today, I can easily hike 6 kilometres. My sleeping hours are back to normal, 8-10 hours per night. I can easily drive for one hour without stopping! Each day I celebrate my successes no matter how insignificant they may seem to others, they are a great victory for me. I still remember the day my body was able to sweat again, July 2019! Even though it was hot and humid outside, I was just so excited! I was now able to release toxins through my skin again!

l am now a Certified EFT Master Practioner since September 2019. Yes! When you are in the right place at the right time, things just come together. I believe that all my life issues and my desire to heal have been a huge part of my success. I have also learned that I am an intuitive empath, which gives me a heads up with guiding my clients on their healing journey. In December 2019, I completed the Conscious Parenting Mastery program with Dr. Shefali Tsabary.

Today I am so grateful for my journey, as it is what helps me understand my clients without judging them! It has become clear to me that I need to share my story, to give hope and courage to people who may be at the beginning of their journeys and feel very alone. You do not need to do this alone. There are many natural ways to heal. Do your best to listen to that inner voice, it will guide you on your journey.

Coming soon, I am launching a program for parents and educators to learn to consciously co-create with children. You will want to see and experience the difference in your relationships with your children.

Wishing you the return of your emotional and physical health! 🦋
