The first edition of my new book – SOLD OUT – in just two weeks

The first edition of my Swedish inspirational book about stressreduction “Lugn i Stormen – EFT:Första hjälpen för den sjuka jobbstressen” was sold out 2 weeks after release, YES!

I released the book at the exhibition FitForLife / AlltFörHälsan in Älvsjö end of November, where I worked in the EFT Association booth. We where demonstrating the efficacy of EFT for anyone wanting to try it out. We cleared relationship issues, vertigo, writer´s blocks, sorrow, sadness, pains and numerous fears, just to mention some issues. At the exhibition we tap on people to demonstrate quick results in this noisy and open environment. EFT is however really a self-help method that you can use yourself.

Rene, that I had met on an Executive’s Global Network meeting the day before also tried the method. I later received this email from him:
– I can attest that this method really works. After only one session, I can deal with my fear of heights in a whole new way! I feel calm and confident when I think of or am located in high altitudes. Many thanks!
Rene Lambin IT Operations Manager Capio S:t Görans Sjukhus

I also got the opportunity to speak about EFT Tapping for full house. All seats were taken, people standing at the tables at the back of the room and there were even people sitting on the floor in the hallway next to the seats.

img_0127It was so rewarding being able to present both the book and the new upgrade of the iPhone app:  GO EFT Tapping©, now Free and available both in English and Arabic.

The next edition of the book is already uploaded to Bokrondellen, which means that any day now it will be searchable on www.Adlibris.se and other bookstores everywhere. Stay tuned! People were so fond of the format with Wire-O binding, so I decided to keep it to the next edition. It enables you to keep the book open by itself while following the instructions and finding the points.

Happy tapping!

YES; finally ready! GO EFT Tapping also in Arabic

iphone-7-1GO EFT Tapping for effective stress reduction is now available as a free app on iTunes App Store, with support for both English and Arabic tapping. Now it also includes a new optional in-app purchase feature: GO EFT Bridge. The latter offers support to increase the positive, more constructive reactionbs, instead of the old habitual ones that you had before tapping.

Now it supports Arabic as well. How did that happen, Sara?

The arabic world is in turmoil facing atrocities frequently or even constantly in many places, I am thinking not only of Mosul and Aleppo, which are in the news daily. As the mail from Dr Ashraf came, asking for help to effective self help for the Arabic people, I was eager to support with the expertise I had with stress relief using EFT online and in apps.

So, this Arabic version is made possible by Dr. Ashraf Al-Hadethe, a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society who is currently working at the Baghdad University. His PhD Thesis was made at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom at Clinical Psychology, Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology, School of Medicine. The thesis compared EFT tapping to other psychological interventions for stress and trauma. He wanted the app on Arabic as so many of the Arabic people worldwide are in urgent need for effective help for stress and anxiety reduction.

Ta en titt, vet ja! Möjliggjort av Dr Al-Hadethes önskan att jag skulle översätta min GO EFT Tapping app till arabiska till förmån för det arabiska folket.

Dela gärna vidare till alla som vill hjälpa behövande, flyktingar, krigsdrabbade, anhöriga och övriga. EFT metoden är godkänd evidensbaserad metod av APA, American Psychological Association för stress, ångest, PTSD m.m.

Wow – EFT To Be Offered To All Education Workers

EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique is making its way into mainstream, also in schools. Thanks to Pika Rajnar´s excellent and persistent work, the government is actually funding 75 percent of EFFT training for all teachers and educational workers in Slovenian secondary and primary schools and kindergarten. The training will be based around AAMET training materials.

This is such a great landmark for EFT – that a national government sees fit to include it for all educational workers and award the training its highest level of funding.”

I look forward to the day when EFT is equally known and respected as efficient stress management tool in the business world.

AAMET is the same organisation as behind my EFT certification.

Great news from the AAMET…!

EGN Facilitator now

Happily attended my first Chair Forum today, meeting the facilitator colleagues at EGN, Executives Global Network. This new part-time work is going to be so fun!

Executives’ Global Network (EGN) offers professional networking in carefully matched groups.

As facilitator I ensure the best conditions for powerful and generous knowledge sharing and reflection.

In Sweden, EGN is the leading competence network with nearly 2 000 members from 25 executive functions in 110 groups. EGN is represented in 14 countries, has over 14 000 members from 6 200 companies in approx 750 confidential network groups. EGN is the second biggest Executive Network worldwide.

 

Fun working with Orangino Work internationally

It is so fun and rewarding to work with the tool Orangino Work. Of course it is always better to have all people in the same room when working with group development. However, there are teams that simply are distributed over the world.

I have now run several workshops using the  Orangino Work tool online with parties on several locations, achieving excellent results, so I think I have earned the certification mark as External Methodology Coach.

One manager said:
“Orangino Work is a prepared package!
Light weight preparation for leader/facilitator,
with a tremendous value on the resulting output!”

Tapping invades Swedish culture – soon everyone will have heard about it

I am so happy to see that EFT and other variants of Tapping have entered Swedish culture! Fun-Fun!

 

Television:

In the first episode of the childrens movie, Pepparkornen, the young heroine, taps with her grandma, as they have just discussed the stress of moving and changing schools. Their tapping is interrupted by her ignorant father. But still: tapping was displayed in a natural setting. Just as natural as it often happens in my own home when someone is distressed or in pain…

Irene Ödmark-Hall was interviewed for Fråga Doktorn at SVT, a well known health program on the Swedish national television. Irene and EFT comes at 6:40 into the programm.

Several EFT books have recently been published in Swedish or by Swedish authors:

Even ourkindlefire_600x1024 (2) own Green Smoothies – Wellness and Weight Loss Recipes (e-book on Amazon) includes a small chapter on addressing the emotional side of eating with EFT tapping.

EFT Tapping has been present in Swedish magazines before, e.g.:

  • TARA nr 5 2014 (bl.a. om Meggan, som knackade bort sin flygrädsla.)
  • Free (Nick Ortner and the new book: Knacka dig fri med EFT)
  • Amelia (På 1 session blev journalisten av med sötsuget.)
  • Inspire (Varför är metoden så snabb?)
  • ToppHälsa (Sötsuget försvann på 3 gånger.)
  • Hälsa (KnackPunkten (fd LivsFröjd) är en del av lösningen.)

In my vision of the future, it is just as common to tap as to take an aspirin or to take a nap or drink.

YES! TFT (the predecessor of EFT) registered by SAMHSA as evidence based practise in NREPP

TFT (Thought Field Therapy), a predecessor of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, i.e. Tapping) has now been registered by SAMHSA, a government agency in the United States in their so called NREPP database as an evidence based effective treatment. 

EFT which I and many with me, offer as a form of coaching and/or therapy is already submitted and is probably also going to recorded during 2016 as well! YES!

I just wonder when the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen) is going to realize what´s going on…?

SAMHSA states that TFT is as an effective treatment according to NREPP standards for:

  • Trauma (PTSD) and Stressor-Related Disorders and Symptoms
  • Self-Regulation
  • Personal Resilience/Self-Concept

Other symptoms for which TFT also looked promising were:

  • Phobia, Panic, and Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Symptoms
  • Depression & Depressive Symptoms
  • General Functioning & Well-Being
  • as well as some other disorders and symptoms
