Emotional Healing Expert : EFT Tapping Master, Lindsay Kenny
This is an email interview I did with Lindsay Kenny, EFT Master, who is based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, Ca. The purpose of this interview was to get to know a bit more about the person behind the energy healing work. The response to my interview questions are unedited. Enjoy the interview and I hope it inspires you.
The terms Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT, & EFT tapping are used interchangeably. ~ Sandra Bradley
#1. Lindsay, what is your philosophy for helping people?
“I’ve always been interested in helping others…even when I was a little girl. Maybe it was because I needed help myself. I just know that nothing makes me feel better than knowing I’ve helped someone else have peace of mind, increased confidence or joy in life. To me, that’s what it’s all about.”
#2. How did you hear about Emotional Freedom Technique?
“I simply looked in the phone book for a therapist who could help me with severe depression. The book opened up to the exact page I needed, and my eyes fell on a therapist who listed the things I was going through. It turned out that I was probably her very first client in EFT. She was a marriage and family counselor who had just learned the basics of tapping the weekend before. She struggled through the process with me, and we both thought it was weird. I didn’t even know what it was called or what had just happened. I just knew I felt 100% better when I left and that my life had dramatically changed.”
#3. How would you describe EFT tapping technique to newbies?
“Tapping is simply helping the body let go of negative emotions by stimulating the energy system, where emotions are trapped. The vibration from tapping on energy points creates a vibration within the energy pathways (meridian) that allows a negative emotion to quickly dissipate. If I had three sentences I would go on to say it’s a little magical, and it really works.”
#4. How long have you been using EFT tapping professionally?
#5. What kind of issues do you like to help people most with EFT?
“I’ve worked on virtually every imaginable issue and negative emotion. However, what comes up most often is also what I like the most, and that’s “being stuck” issues, relationships, self-esteem issues, fears and beliefs, prosperity and abundance and personal performance. I also invest a lot of time in working with aspiring practitioners and trainers. I simply want people to be their best.”
#6. What is the most profound shift you’ve ever witnessed using the EFT tapping technique with clients?
“This is a tough one, because I’ve witnessed so many extraordinary shifts. However one lady came to me a few years ago with a mess of seemingly insurmountable problems. She had lost her job, her fiancé, her health, energy, her sense of self-worth and even her will to live…all within a month or two.”
“She had so many health and emotional issues that it took two pages to list them. Yet with tapping, and in less accumulative time invested than it would take to do your taxes, she was back on her feet. Within two months she had establish a great new career, had regained her health, had a new love interest and was solidly confident, energetic and happy. It almost seemed like magic, as I mentioned above. All she had going for her in the beginning was a tiny willingness to overcome her obstacles. She came to me a shattered, dejected woman, and soon was and is living the life of her dreams. It was a huge turn around for her and a blessing for me to help her with it.”
#7. Do you use EFT tapping technique on yourself? How has it benefited you personally?
“Heavens yes! Tapping makes life so much easier. I had a pretty good life already, but I wasn’t feeling very good about myself. After tapping away the negativity of my childhood and other issues, I created an ideal life and feel great about who I’ve become.”
“Tapping helps to instantly neutralize bumps that could grow into mountains if allowed to fester. One of the biggest advantages of tapping is having this extraordinary tool available, literally at my fingertips, to tap away problems as they arise.”
#8. Does EFT tapping work for everybody?
“No, I don’t think it works for everyone across the board. It can work on babies, the elderly, animals and even those in a coma. The success rate is so high (up to 98% when it’s used by a competent practitioner) that it seems like it works for everyone. However, it really doesn’t. Still, just about anyone in any business or industry, including the medical field, would love to have a 98% success rate.”
“When doesn’t it work? Tapping often doesn’t work if someone is heavily medicated, drunk, or otherwise mentally compromised. Also, tapping isn’t likely going to help someone if they consciously don’t want to change or let go. I’ve had clients who came to me saying they wanted to quit smoking or drinking, but later admitted that they only came in to get someone else off of their back. They didn’t really want to quit, so their results were minimal. It does work, however, even if someone doesn’t believe it will.”
#9. Lindsay, you have quite a collection of downloadable tele-classes and articles on your website. Which one is your favorite for emotional healing and why?
“Again, this is a difficult choice because I have such a broad spectrum of products covering just about every issue. However, the audio that seems to have helped more people and is the most popular is my “Bundling Baggage” teleclass. This process, which I developed about 6 years ago, helps someone neutralize all of the negativity from any segment of their life…usually in a matter of minutes.”
“Letting go of childhood pain, beliefs, fears and negative emotions seems to be the best use of this technique. The formative years, before the age of 7 are where most of our problems originate. The Bundling Baggage technique can help eliminate any group of repetitive, similar negative events. It’s yet another example of the magic of tapping.”
#10. And finally, Lindsay. What is the single most valuable tip you can share on how to use EFT tapping technique effectively for inner healing?
“Finally, an easy question to answer. I think the most valuable thing to know about tapping, by far, is that it will work so much better if you neutralize any subconscious resistance to change before you start the tapping process. All of us have a little inner voice saying “But I don’t WANT to!” which we call a Reversal. That voice, our subconscious, is far more powerful than our conscious will or determination. So a simple procedure to quiet that resistance, or Reversal, will go a long way toward helping the tapping process work more efficiently and effectively, and it’s so easy to do. Your readers can learn about Reversals and how to neutralize them on the Free Stuff page of my website at www.LKcoaching.com“

When I was ready to take my self healing to the next level and plunge into learning the Emotional Freedom Technique, I took three workshops with Lindsay Kenny. I was pleased with my experience. I learned some advance techniques developed by Lindsay and other seasoned EFT practitioners. If you too are ready to take the plunge, visit Lindsay’s website – www.LKcoaching.com. She also has a great collection of downloadable EFT tapping tele-classes. It is a convenient and affordable way to experience EFT tapping without actually being there.
