Episode 87
15, Aug, 2019
}38 Minutes

Show Notes

Today we’re chatting with Dr Peta Stapleton who is a registered Clinical & Health Psychologist and an Associate Professor in Psychology at Bond University here in Australia.  She is a world-leading researcher in EFT – which is short for Emotional Freedom Technique (otherwise known as tapping) and led a world-first randomized clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of EFT on food cravings in overweight and obese adults.

In this entertaining podcast (Peta has a great sense of humour!) we talk all things:

  • What exactly is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or tapping, and how does it work?
  • How EFT helps to reduce stress hormone levels and support our nervous system on a biochemical level
  • The incredible statistics showing how fast it works to help those suffering from conditions such as anxiety and PTSD
  • Results from her clinical trial showing how it helps to reduce food cravings – and yes, this does include a chocolate muffin!
  • How it can be used to improve anxiety-related sleep issues such as sleep onset and reduce intermittent awakenings
