FasterEFT got a bad name, which at the time of writing, got more of the unwanted kind of publicity. However, should we throw the baby out with the bathwater, as the English saying goes? Or Should some positive changes be made by the community of practitioners of all modalities, standing together to help?
FasterEFT helped my colleague Rose to overcome Lupus. There is now no sign of Lupus in her bloods. This is a medical fact. So, please forgive me if I do not jump on the let's-destroy-FasterEFT bandwagon. But it does not mean that I agree with the way some of its practitioners work.
These rogue practitioners need clear rules and a structure which prevents them from going off the rails and doing harm to their clients. This method has done far more good than harm, but the harm that it has done, by some rogue practitioners, is very serious. What there needs to be is a structure within a regulatory body, such as an association for the method, to whom all of its practitioners are accountable. It should have a clear code of conduct and disciplinary procedure. Once this happens, then FasterEFT can be on par with many other modalities.
Another problem is that the technique uses tapping on acupressure points but it is not EFT per se. It is more a form of NLP that incorporates some acupressure. Perhaps a re-naming is needed, or maybe people should just be told this is a format influenced by, but is not, actually EFT.
NLP is short for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. It can be very powerful. Add some Tapping-inspired acuppressure, and on only a few points, and that can be such a powerful combination. Although I do not agree with Robert Smith's explanation of how it works, I respect a great deal of what he has done. For example, he helps out with whole teams in rehab centres. The approach is not strictly speaking EFT, and does not stand for Emotional Freedom Techniques, but it has done a lot of good. Let it become a separate tapping entity and get some proper accountabily measures.
The approach can be very much Tough Love, whereas many people prefer the gentleness of the genuine forms of Emotional Freedom Techniques that are energy-based, with great emphasis on the need for gentleness and avoiding distressing the client. But some people respond better to Gentle Care and other respond better to Tough Love. All this technique needs is an association or proper measures put in place to guard the public from the few rogue practitioners that have done so much bad work, they make the whole method look bad.
Hoping for peace for all modalities.
