What is Thought Field Therapy?
Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a simple and straightforward technique for resolving emotional and psychological issues. It utilizes acupuncture points which the client activates by simply tapping them with the fingertips while thinking about the specific problem. This process has the capability of disabling and quite often completely eliminating troublesome emotional and physical responses.
How will TFT help me?
It is believed that Thought Field Therapy is the most effective psychotherapy ever discovered or devised. Time after time it has proven to be extremely successful in treating Fears, Phobias, Anxiety, Trauma (PTSD), OCD, Physical Pain and many other emotional problems that can be life limiting, stifle personal performance and act as barriers to block physical and emotional healing.
Is TFT related to Energy Psychology?
No. Energy Psychology is a very loose term and includes many procedures. TFT would be more properly called Information Psychology.
Is TFT compatible with other types of therapies and medication?
Yes. Thought Field Therapy is a great addition to any therapeutic plan or regime and is especially well suited with NLP, Hypnotherapy and Reiki. This treatment also works well alongside a course of prescribed medication, but functions extremely well as a standalone therapy too.
Is TFT painful in any way?
Not at all. No needles or other instruments are used, nor does it require you to talk at length about your problem, something that can cause considerable distress in itself.
What are Toxins and how can they affect a TFT treatment?
Toxins can be anything that is consumed, inhaled or comes into contact with, that has an adverse effect on the individual. Toxins can be the underlying cause of many psychological, emotional and physical problems. Toxins are almost invariably the cause of the recurrence of a once successful treatment and can on occasions prevent a treatment or medication from working as well as it could. See Toxins below for more details.
How do I know that my therapist is qualified to use TFT with me?
Your therapist is a member of the Association for Thought Field Therapy and should display a certificate signed by an ATFT approved trainer. ATFT is a worldwide organisation of therapists who have been well trained and continually updated in the use of this dynamic and highly successful therapy.
What happens during a TFT treatment?
The therapist instructs the client to tap a series of pre-determined acupuncture points on the body and face in a precise order while thinking of their problem, typically and often very rapidly a significant reduction or elimination of the problem results.
How effective is TFT?
TFT is not a ‘band-aid’ therapy. It offers real, measurable and permanent relief from a wide variety of problems. It has been referred to as “The Power Therapy of the 21st Century” because of its high degree of effectiveness. Many common fears and phobias can be eliminated in minutes. That is not to say that every problem responds as quickly. Some problems require a few treatments and corresponding shifts in lifestyle. However, most clients experience significant changes and improvements within the first session.
Does TFT have any side-effects?
By side effects, most people think ‘unpleasant’ side-effects. The answer is simply “No”. However, evidence using Heart Rate Variability analysis has shown that successful TFT treatment has at least one very beneficial side effect – the rebalancing of the autonomic nervous system.

What if the problem comes back?
Occasionally, a problem that has been cured successfully due to treatment can recur. If this should happen call your therapist. Not only will they be able to successfully and quickly treat the problem again, but will also be able to help in determining why it returned. Once the reason has been determined, it is often a simple matter to eliminate it permanently.
Is TFT safe?
Yes, absolutely! TFT is remarkable because it can do no harm whatsoever. It will either work or do nothing at all. If no satisfactory results are forthcoming it is usually due to a deeper layer to the problem that is yet untreated or toxins in the system that are blocking thetreatment, both of which can be investigated further by the therapist and rectified. Remember, TFT has a success rate of 80% – 98% depending on the expertise level of your Practitioner. TFT can be used with anyone and is also used successfully with infants and animals.
Do I need to believe, for it to work?
No. With TFT, belief is not necessary for the therapy to work. TFT has repeatedly surprised sceptics who did not “believe in” TFT. These former sceptics found that TFT worked without their personal belief in it; just as antibiotics do not depend upon the belief of the person taking them in order to be effective.
Psychological Reversal (PR) is an extremely important factor in Thought Field Therapy, in fact in all therapies and treatments including prescribed medication. Psychological reversal can block the effects of an otherwise successful treatment or cure and can cause people to become self-defeating, negativistic and self-sabotaging. When you are psychologically reversed your actions and feelings can run contrary to what you want to do and how you feel. Other signs to look out for are the reversing of words or letters when speaking or writing, reversing left and right directions, sudden mood swings, excessive clumsiness and prone to common illnesses. Toxins are often the cause of a client being psychologically reversed. Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD etc. can all be improved by diagnosing toxins and treating psychological reversal.
