Meet Barbara Stewart
Certified EFT Practitioner
Barbara Stewart has dedicated her life to helping others grow.
As a community-outreach worker, Barbara helped new mothers become confident caregivers and supported grieving parents after unexpectedly losing a child. Through her work in civil-rights, Barbara worked to create a more equitable and accessible world by advising on Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act.
In 2012, Barbara, a lifetime believer in holistic, integrative and functional medicine, discovered the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). Using EFT, Barbara unraveled layers of emotional issues that had mounted since childhood. These issues, which had been discussed for years in a traditional-counseling environment, melted away thanks to EFT. It was through her personal experience that she was inspired to become a certified EFT practitioner so she could help others.
Barbara Stewart earned her EFT Practitioner Certification, Levels 1 & 2, at the Center for EFT Studies and is a member of the Association of EFT Professionals..
EFT Tapping combines the principles of modern psychology with ancient Chinese acupressure.
By tapping on specific body meridian endpoints, you can shift your body's response to the stimulus by clearing the blocks in the body's emotional and physical energy systems.
EFT has been shown to calm the nervous system, shift negative belief and thought patterns,
and restore emotional, physical and mental balance.
In a 2013 pilot study on addiction treatment, the psychological symptoms of three groups were compared.
One group received conventional talk therapy, the second received a single EFT session and the third group abstained from treatment.
Analysis revealed a 3x greater reduction in anxiety and depression symptoms among the EFT group than the other two groups.

"Barbara is caring, genuine and insightful, and doing EFT sessions with her really helped me. I had one traumatic memory in particular from 1998 that she helped me shift. It had haunted me a long time and was related to many stubborn anxiety symptoms. If I think about it now there is zero pain. A few weeks ago I was even able to sleep in the room where it happened without any problem. Therapy helped with other things, but with this memory it just caused renewed pain. Tapping released me from the pain. Thank you, Barbara!"
