The school counselors in every school have a very big role to play and one of those roles is helping students discover who they are, increase their self-esteem and help them use techniques to decrease stress. Many school counselors are using the simple technique of EFT to help their students live stress free school lives.
As a school counselor, ensuring that your students can manage their emotional intelligence so that they remain mentally healthy and can continue to improve in school is a high priority. EFT in combination with various counseling techniques can help improve student performance in the following ways. One, there are those students whose academic achievement has been deteriorating. A school counselor can employ EFT to assist with confidence in their ability. To do this, you need to help your students identify the problem. After helping them identify the problem, we rate the feeling out of 10 and state the emotion. Then we tap on pressure points around the body while talking about the reasons why their grades are falling. This will help your students release academic tensions and believe in themselves.
Application of EFT in career and emotional development
As a school counselor, career choice and the successes associated with it depends highly on both emotional and physical balance. With EFT, you will be in a position to bring in focus and help your students choose and develop their careers by tapping (EFT) on their weaknesses and releasing and resolving traumas around this. On the other hand EFT can be used to harness emotional and social development as well. There are multiple ways in which tapping can help you. A school counselor should therefore employ EFT in their counseling so as to ensure that students become productive, healthy and well-adjusted adults for tomorrow.
