EFT Tapping for goals

EFT Tapping for Goals: Group Coaching For Adults

WHAT’S UP: Registration open for Eleni’s March 2024 EFT Tapping for Goals group coaching via Zoom. This is a live drop-in session for adults, anywhere in the world, who want assistance with achieving a goal that’s important for them this month


Our stress response can kick in when we think about working towards a goal that is important for us. Left to it’s own devices, this can cause flight response behaviors such as avoiding doing tasks that move us closer to our goal (procrastination). 

Practicing EFT Tapping in a group coaching session helps to declutter our mind, body, and emotions from the stress-related blocks that are stopping us from making better progress on our goal. 

EFT Tapping is a stress management and relaxation method that has been around for more than 40 years and researched now for more than 20 years. The 300+ journal articles on EFT Tapping, 125 of which are published in high quality peer reviewed journals, show it positively affects a range of biochemistry in the body (e.g. positive changes in brain activity, cortisol, and DNA expression).

You can find a reference list at the bottom of this page if you want to check out some research papers evidencing the benefits of tapping for our biochemistry.

Watch this video to get a taster of the sort of thing you can expect when participating in my group coaching for goals EFT workshop.

After a brief Icebreaker Tapping exercise to get a sense of how everyone is feeling, group members are offered a chance to briefly introduce themselves by saying your name and what your goal is that you’d like to work on. 

Next, you will measure the intensity of your stress on a scale of 0-10, noting that down along with where you feel the stress in your body, try to locate where you might feel it in your body. If you can, you try and locate what emotion might be behind that physical sensation, and try and give it an intensity score from 0-10.

I then invite someone from the group to volunteer for me to work with them so I can demonstrate how EFT Tapping can be used to clear the component of their stress response that bothers them the most. Meanwhile, everyone taps along to borrow benefits for reducing the intensity of their own blocks for their own goal. 

If we have time, and if another member of our group wants to have a go volunteering, we can do a shorter, second demonstration while everyone continues to tap along to borrow benefits for themselves.

We wrap the practice up by group members sharing their before vs after tapping 0-10 scores and experiences.


There are different ways of tapping. The Clinical EFT Tapping points (see below) are the ones used in the EFT research trials that test the effectiveness of EFT Tapping. These are the self-administered tapping points that I guide people through in my private and group tapping coaching sessions.
