Episode 21 – Claire Hayes – The Healing Space of EFT

Claire Hayes interview on Simple Daily Practice Podcast

Claire’s daughter has been a sweet, loving girl, but the combination of hormones, autism and changes in her epilepsy had made her difficult live with, even dangerous. Claire was at the end of her rope, not even sure if she wanted to live. She knew something had to change, but she didn’t know what.

A woman in her community was teaching a class on EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Tapping. Claire was a trained shiatsu practitioner, and honestly, she thought the idea of bring an issue to mind and tapping on yourself while saying words out loud sounded crazy. She respected this woman though and went to a class on weight loss. Even after her first session, she was clear this was what she needed to help her with her situation with her daughter.

Claire continued sessions with the EFT practitioner and was able to find a whole different place of calm and peace to help her daughter. She went on to study EFT on her own, and is now teaching others how to make it a daily practice.

Claire shares her moving and remarkable story of what EFT is, how she shifted her original ideas about EFT, and the many changes she and her daughter have both experienced using this technique.

In this interview, Claire shares:

  • how dancing was her first daily practice
  • her experience with Buddhist meditation and how it didn’t land for her
  • the basics of EFT Tapping
  • a quick experience of tapping
  • why creativity is her favorite part of EFT
  • how Claire uses EFT with and for her daughter
  • her complete daily practice
  • her key to getting the most out of EFT
  • her advice for getting started with EFT

  • Great interview Peggy. Claire, thank you for sharing your inspirational story and the path that took you to EFT and brought you out of that dark period in your life. I’m so happy both you and your daughter are now in a happy place.

    I’ve only ever tried tapping once when Marie Forleo demonstrated it in a video interview last year. It really resonated with me then and I’m even more inspired by you.

    I’m happy to say that I don’t have any deep emotional issues I need to release (at the moment!), but you’ve opened my mind to how I could be using EFT in more of a simple daily way to alleviate smaller stresses or anxieties.

    Thank you ladies for this eye opening interview!

    • Hi Kelly! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Yes, EFT is a great daily practice to help you keep your balance. I’m curious to hear if you give it another try.
