The most effective and proven tools for anxiety & stress relief

Benefits of EFT:


Patricia Costa, MA

Certified EFT Practitioner & Coach, Stress Relief Specialist

Hi there! I’m so happy you’re here. I’m guessing you’re here because you want more calm instead of chaos in your life. You just need someone to show you how. That’s why I’m here.

I am an Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner and Coach specializing in Stress Relief, Limiting Beliefs Release, and Mindful Mindset.  I help women experience less stress and more serenity by giving them tools and support to navigate life challenges.

I understand what it’s like to live a life filled with anxiety and stress. During my mid-twenties, I felt lost. I felt pulled in different directions.

That’s when I discovered the power of personal work. I started on a journey towards better mental health that ultimately changed my life for the better.

I started with traditional therapy so  I could release negative memories and develop new thinking patterns. I later discovered techniques to make the process even faster.

Thereafter, I participated in women’s groups where I was able to do healing work, and I loved seeing the “aha” moments that other members had. It felt incredibly meaningful when I could provide insight that would positively impact the life of someone else.

When our group sessions ended, everyone left with a greater sense of purpose in their lives. When they stepped out of the group and back into their lives they knew that they were seen, valued and supported. Even during some difficult circumstances, they were renewed every time.

I knew that I wanted to help even more women to have the same type of empowering experience.

That’s when I started my path to study to become a psychotherapist. But my journey didn’t end there. I also became a certified Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Practitioner and trained in Mindfulness.

I’ve tried many therapeutic methods and discovered the most simple and effective approaches, and I’m on a personal mission to share them with other women.

About EFT

What is EFT & How Can it Help You?

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)  or Tapping is a set of evidence-based tools, which is backed up by science and proven to help with mind and body balance.

EFT is based on the same meridian points used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments. By tapping on these points, we send a calming signal to the brain to calm the body and mind down.

Whether it’s high stress and anxiety, a traumatic event, or a health challenge, the combination of tapping about the distress and then voice empowering intentions works to release the emotional blocks — of body and mind, thus restoring mind and body’s balance.

EFT is Evidence-Based and Backed Up by Science

The popularity and use of EFT have grown  and scientific research continues to demonstrate its effectiveness to treat anxiety, emotional stress, trauma, and more. In fact, over 275 scientific studies about EFT have been published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals.

Benefits of EFT on Food Cravings

Food cravings are often triggered by emotional factors like stress and anxiety. By using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping to address these underlying emotional issues, we can reduce the intensity and frequency of our cravings, and make healthier choices when it comes to food. To use EFT for food cravings, start by identifying the specific emotion or feeling that’s triggering the craving.Then tap focusing on the feeling in your body. As the tapping releases the energy blockages associated with the emotion, you may notice the intensity of the craving diminishing, and a greater sense of calm and balance in your body and mind. In addition to addressing specific emotions, EFT Tapping can also be used to improve overall well-being and reduce stress levels. By incorporating Tapping into your daily routine, you can create a greater sense of emotional resilience and balance, which can help to reduce the likelihood of food cravings occurring.

The Science Behind EFT Tapping

Clinical trials have demonstrated that tapping on acupuncture points on the body can change DNA expression, and radically reduce stress hormone cortisol. Harvard University conducted 10 year research clinical trials on the acupuncture points on the body, they’ve shown that the stimulation of these points sends a signal to the stress center part of the brain called the amygdala telling it to calm down. And it not only works remarkably fast, but it has the unique ability to update the brain’s learnings. We know by scientific research that 6 hours of EFT on PTSD results in a lack of diagnosis and a reduction of symptoms. Gold Standard Therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EFT are highly comparable at the end of treatment, they get the same outcomes, but the difference is the duration of the treatment is much faster. Because there are now over 275 studies in the past 10 years of clinical trials across different areas, EFT is now considered a solid evidence based therapy.
