EFT practitioner finds joy in helping others

Alice Grange of Courtenay suffered for many years from self-esteem issues.

“Having grown up in a family with a mentally ill, alcoholic mother and surrounded by other dysfunctional friends and relatives, the wounds from childhood seemed insurmountable” says Alice. “I saw countless therapists but still the despair seemed bottomless. I didn’t believe that I was worthy of love and success until I was introduced to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Then and only then did my life begin to shift in more positive directions.”

That experience was so profound that Alice was inspired to become a certified EFT practitioner and now finds great joy in helping other survivors of child and adult abuse and trauma make similar changes to their lives.

“Helping others shift from an existence of pain, quite often physical pain, and despair, to living a life of hope and purpose is deeply satisfying,” says Alice.

Due to the often-rapid results Emotional Freedom Techniques are gaining in popularity and are endorsed by influential authors including Wayne Dyer and Jack Canfield of the Chicken Soup series, and popular doctors including Dr. Oz, Deepak Chopra and Joseph Mercola.

EFT is a remarkable self-help tool. Louise Hay, spiritual leader and best-selling author of numerous books including You Can Heal Your Life, recently discovered the benefits of Emotional Freedom Techniques, (EFT).

After her first EFT session, she remarked that a fear she had been carrying around since childhood, was “pretty much gone!”

The benefits of EFT are not limited to abuse issues.

People frequently report lasting relief from physical ailments like head and back aches, and emotional stressors like anxieties, phobias, fears, grief, PTSD and learning difficulties.

“Some people have even used it to improve their golf handicap and get better test results,” laughs Alice. “You can use it on anything.”

Based on the ancient Chinese practice of acupressure, combined with modern psychology, Emotional Freedom Techniques, (EFT or Tapping), are simple, powerful and profound forms of healing that can quickly remove limiting beliefs and the impact of negative memories.

Alice is holding a Tapping Circle every Tuesday in February, starting at 7 p.m. Those who are interested in learning more can check out www.healingwithtapping.com, contact Alice at alicegrange@gmail.com or call 250-702-7570.

The suggested contribution is $25 per circle. One-quarter of the proceeds will be donated to the Comox Valley Transition Society in appreciation for their 25 years of service to our community.
