Emotional Freedom Technique
EFT tapping can be used for anxiety, interrupting negative patterns, breaking down mental blocks, and just about any other feeling you would like to change.
Feel free to check out:
Below is some additional info but if you've had a session with me in my office you might remember me saying to not overthink it, its more of an intuitive process and it all starts with acknowledging the negative feeling and then allowing it to transform as you tap with the intention to release it.
EFT Tapping Points: What Emotion Connects to Each Tapping Point?
♦ ♦ KC (1) Karate Chop Point - The Karate Chop point is mainly used for; the EFT setup statement, psychological reversals and simple tapping techniques (STT). It is an alternative for the sore spot EFT point.
The karate chop point is located on the soft fleshy part of the non-dominant hand, between the base of the pinky finger and the wrist. We would use this is the part of the hand break a board... 'karate chop' style.

♦ ♦ TH (2) Top of Head Point - This point (set of points) is located at the top of the head and was added several years ago at an EFT conference. Since then, it has been widely accepted by Gary Craig and many of the others in the EFT community.
This is an important energy center since many meridians meet at the top of the head. It is also in the area of the 7th. or Crown Chakra, which is a spiritual energy center. Some say that stimulating this area wakes up the entire energy system and encourages the body-mind to pay attention to what we are about to address. This point is highly sensitive and its important to be very gentle when tapping!
