Can EFT help me with test-taking anxiety?

Whether your issue is physical, behavioral or emotional the power of your mind can transform you in 5 sessions or less. I'll guide you to use your deep inner mind to make the change you desire!

Absolutely, EFT can help with test-taking anxiety. EFT is essentially creating a new focus (via tapping) to settle your conscious mind and allow access to your subconscious mind so that it can receive the new information, beliefs etc. It may also have some mechanism utilizing the meridians of course.

One limitation that you may find with EFT is that it may or may not permanently resolve the text-taking anxiety (or in any other context). This may be an indication that deeper work is needed such as childhood regression therapy (a childhood event that your psyche has now associated with taking tests), or parts therapy (addressing an inner part that causes this behavior).

I use EFT/Tapping along with T.A.T. or Eye Movement Therapy and find it quite effective when used alongside the deeper work.

I use a combination of psychotherapy and biofeedback which allows me to help people regulate their emotions both mentally and physically.

EFT can definitely be helpful with test-taking anxiety. It's a useful coping technique and it also helps to decrease the body's reactivity to the stressor. The different steps of EFT help the hemispheres of the brain to communicate more easily which decreases the anxiety and promotes clarity.
