Hi Everyone,

Gerald Eppinette is an experienced counselor with only a beginner's experience in EFT. He used what little he knew for a suicidally depressed client with spectacular results. He says, "I am humbled and honored to have come across this technique and to be able to use it. It is great for daily living and successful in bringing people out of their past and into their future. But I never dreamed it could possibly bring someone from the brink of death."

Hugs, Gary

Hi,

I have been reading EFT articles and have found that EFT is a very interesting and amazing technique. I have a counseling clinic and see a variety of issues come through the office.  I decided to try some EFT on some of my more difficult cases just to see if it would work.  Of course you know what I am going to say next. Yes, it works. 

GC COMMENT: This is fabulous testimony to how well the basics can work. Note that Gerald has minimal training in EFT and, apparently, has not even read the EFT Manual. Nonetheless, he has generated significant results. Better EFT training through our DVDs, will of course, take him to much higher levels with his clients.

Recently I have tried EFT on such things as depression, smoking, and pornography.  It has been a breakthrough experience.  However, last night's phone call took EFT to a whole new level for me.  I received an emergency phone call from one of my clients that I see regarding depression.

It was so bad that he was suicidal. In the past when a client threatens suicide and all my red flags go up, I call the hospital and have a person committed.  Not often, of course, but when they tell me they are leaving my office to go kill themselves, I don't have a choice but to intervene for their safety.  This client was at that level.  I decided to try EFT before any other drastic measures were taken.  I started with tapping 4 rounds: Even though I want to kill myself...  

After that, other issues surfaced and we tapped as follows:

Even though I am so depressed over my wife leaving me...

Even though I grieve over my children being gone…

Even though I have lost my job and feel hopeless...

Even though I feel so lonely from losing her and I'm very angry about it...

By the time we finished, my client no longer wanted to take his life.  He wanted to live and keep going forward.  Of course we have a lot of work to do starting immediately, but I just think of all the suicide victims there have been in this year alone and I wonder  how many would still be alive it EFT had been applied.  It is one thing to counsel a client and see long term progress.  It is also one thing to see immediate results from emotional issues.  But it is quite another to use the EFT method to save a life. 

I am humbled and honored to have come across this technique and to be able to use it. It is great for daily living and successful in bringing people out of their past and into their future. But I never dreamed it could possibly bring someone from the brink of death.

Humbly,

Gerald
