Annie O’Grady, EFT Coach
Author of ‘Tapping Away Your Troubles with EFT’
Life’s too short to hang on to pain or stress – or to sabotaging thoughts: ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘I can’t do it’, ‘I’m useless’, ‘I don’t belong’, etc.
When you clear away pain, stress and limitations, it’s like clearing shadows from around a light. Then you can see/be more of who you really are. Let’s do this as fast as we can, I say. In both private and group sessions I work with the energy structures that underlie emotions and mindsets, to correct conditions of personal difficulty.
As a complementary practitioner, trainer, group leader, educator and writer in the field of in-depth healing and growth in Australia, I now specialize in the natural therapy EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). I teach people EFT through using it, in my Adelaide-based practice, and nationally and internationally through Skype. I provide experienced EFT support for any difficulties.
I see that often, as you heal your emotional difficulties, your physical health improves too.
What has Annie been doing all her life? I moved into the non-drug healing field from a background as journalist, novelist and radio playwright (and mother), through needing to heal myself from a lifetime of emotional hurts. Life really opened up then. Self care has been an ongoing practice for me for years.
I’ve been in private practice with individuals and groups for more than twenty-five years, around southern Australia,, focussed on emotional healing and transpersonal psychodynamics. Since 2005 I’ve specialised in EFT. I conduct EFT workshops and classes including for daily stress management, improving self-confidence, anger management, reaching personal peace, etc. I write on EFT for online and print magazines and in my monthly newsletter (see the opt-in box on this page.)
What results has Annie had with EFT? I’ve successfully assisted people to use EFT to reduce or eliminate a huge range of difficulties – emotional and physical – such as: abuse and trauma effects; pain and symptoms; self esteem; relationship troubles and ‘love pain’ from separation; business difficulties (inc. performance, anger management, fears of success/failure, personal conflict, cold calling reluctance, career changes); anxiety states; depression; body mobility; self sabotage; MPD; phobias (inc. fear of flying, lifts, heights, water, driving, vomiting); grief; exam nerves; limiting attitudes to money; bereavement; dyslexia; childhood conditioning; and much more.

Here’s a testimonial from a women’s centre where I have conducted a number of EFT classes on varied topics:
‘Annie is a great communicator who delivers programs that can be applied to all aspects of life, in self healing and stress management. Our participants’ overall comment regarding Annie’s courses at our Centre is “Please do more!” Great work, Annie.’

Why is Annie a healing facilitator? Well, my own healing path has led me to want to share with others some powerful methods that have helped me. Following a Near Death Experience and a lot of emotional problems throughout my life, in 1983 I began to learn to facilitate healing for myself through ‘new paradigm’ holistic methods, involving mind, body, emotions, spirit.
These involve healing through clearing a person’s emotional and body energy in various easy ways. They worked so well that I wanted to share them with other people.
Initially I couldn’t understand why parts of ourselves seem to work against us — to influence our behaviour, make us sick, hold us back – in spite of what we know we want, such as health, great relationships, more success, etc.
What I learned early is that willpower alone can’t fix many problems. It runs out. And I found that most of our self sabotage operates secretly, at a subconscious level – like software programs in a computer. I discovered fast and easy ways to eliminate pain, old destructive behavioural programs and obsessive ‘loops’ of thought. And when we’ve done that, we’re open to wonderful new ‘programs’ that fit us naturally, and tend to install themselves spontaneously.
Founder of EFT, Gary Craig, says that EFT is a foundation for spiritual connection. I have found this to be so.
New science discoveries such as the new biology and epigenetics, as well as quantum science, and more, support the principles that drive new holistic healing methods such as EFT.
After all, Albert Einstein told us a hundred years ago that absolutely everything in the universe is composed of energy. This includes us, and our bodies. For some reason, mainstream western healing methods have not incorporated this truth. However, now some scientists are needing to study how EFT gets its often amazing results.
World healing I see that guiding individuals to continually feel better and to free up their potentials contributes to their inner peace – and so to world peace. As each of us radiates more light, happiness and effectiveness in the world, our raised consciousness spreads more influence. Could this be our shared life purpose on Earth – to bring more light and peace into humanity’s dark areas?
Yet healing is not the end, it is a step on the path to awakening. The deeper journey is into the realms of spiritual opening and consciousness expansion, nurturing humanity’s higher evolution. On the individual level, if we are not yet as magnificent as each of us could be, we might each actually have to do something about ourselves for our development, about the state that our life experiences have got us into…
In this 21st. century we are blessed to have wonderful new healing avenues to use for this vital inner work — tools which have not been available on this planet until recent years. I see EFT as the most accessible and the most effective of these at present.
