EFT Tapping's ability to transform personal relationships is remarkable.
Whether your love or marriage relationship is unsatisfying, or whether you're dealing with a close personal relationship, EFT for relationships can help.
Below you'll find case histories about people or EFT practitioners who've tried emotional fredom techniques on their relationships, and they've seen profound improvements.
We also warmly invite you to the EFT for relationships online course titled, "Tapping Deep Intimacy."
This 12-week, slef-paced online program combines the best of EFT, neuroscience, and Energy Medicine to produce deep intimacy and lasting change.
When we're upset by what another person does or says, we usually focus on getting them to change. Yet, if you've ever tried to change someone else's behavior, you'll remember that the effort is rarely successful!
It often just compounds the problem.
EFT has you focus, first and foremost, on your own reactions.
Perhaps you simmer with silent resentment when certain people speak.
Perhaps you explode with loud anger when certain topics are mentioned.
The reason you're triggered is that the present situation reminds you of an early childhood experience. While the other person is the detonator, the dynamite is inside of you. EFT can help defuse the charge within. That gives you the gift of emotional freedom.
Though other people might not change, they can no longer keep you in emotional bondage to your bad feelings.
The other benefit of EFT is that relationships are systems. Each person in the relationship is part of the system. Families embody family systems; organizations have organizational cultures. These are energy structures in which people relate. When one person gains emotional freedom, having defused their inner triggers, it changes the energy pattern of the whole system.
Simply changing yourself often produces change in others, even though you're not seeking to change them.
Take a look at the many inspiring case histories below my video, and follow in the footsteps of those in the EFT community who've found that difficult relationships can become wonderful relationships with EFT! If you don't find what you need here, please post your question on the EFTUniverse Discussion Group in the forum, or take a Clinical EFT Workshop, or contact one of the EFTUniverse certified Clinical EFT™ Practitioners.

22 EFT for Relationships Case Histories--
"I received an EFT session from Dr Church to address a family dynamics issue which has plagued me for 30 years. Dr Church spent a lot of time with me, uncovering various layers of issues that came up. At the time it felt very powerful, but the power of it all became especially apparent to me in the months after. Since then, the dynamic has resolved for me in a profound manner. I am, at last, at peace, I am grateful to Dr Church, and to EFT."
