In this special 2-part interview, you’ll hear me talk with my uncle Sébastien! I heard that he was changing career and had become passionate about EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). That was enough to trigger my curiosity and want to find out more about the story behind this change, and more about what EFT is about. Emotional Freedom Technique, which belongs to the field of energetic psychology, is an alternative treatment / form of counselling for both physical and emotional pain. It is said to be very efficient to help with anxiety, trauma, phobias. Many different techniques can apply to treat a patient with EFT, including tapping (stimulating meridians on our body to send new signals to our brain), hypnosis, NeuroLinguistic Programming, and much more. Listen to find out whether EFT is spiritual or scientifically proven!
You’re about to hear the first hour of a fascinating 2.5 hour conversation I had with Sébastien on the phone on a Sunday evening. You’ll get acquainted a little bit with some of our family members. Off recording, we then talked about the needle phobia I’m suffering from and which is being an issue during my pregnancy. Therefore I am open to trying different techniques to try to get it more under control and be better prepared for the big day of the birth! Wish me luck! ?
