Children’s anxiety

EFT Tapping for children

Help yourself AND your children to feel better.

You’re only as happy as your least happy child, right? 

  • Is your child showing signs of anxiety? 
  • Is your child especially fearful and worried?
  • Has your child picked up some worrying habits during Corona?
  • Is your child struggling socially? 
  • Is your child having difficulties at school? 

I’m hearing from more and more of my clients that their kids are showing many signs of anxiety; stress and fear.

Even though the triggering event eg a pandemic or other stressful event is over, sometimes the fear and anxiety can continue and show up in bedwetting, clinginess, mood swings and other behaviour. 

I have found EFT Tapping a very effective tool to help parents help their kids without the kids even knowing and it just involves tapping on certain points on your hands and upper body.

EFT Tapping has been the subject of thousands of studies and clinic reports and consistently shows a reduction in stress, pain and negative emotions in a relatively short amount of time.

I find EFT Tapping to be very effective in helping you reduce your worries and fears and help your children, too. I work with YOU on your child’s issues so they don’t even have to know you are involved and trying to help them.

EFT Tapping can help your children:

  • feel calmer and more confident and capable
  • fussy and picky eating
  • reduce exam anxiety 
  • help with addictions to video games, smartphones, etc
  • social issues with other children
  • self esteem issues
  • bedwetting and toilet training
  • nervous disorders like repetitive behaviour, tics, etc
  • relationship issues with you, your spouse or siblings

What is EFT Tapping? 

One of the most effective tools I have found is the Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT (also called Tapping). EFT is a mind-body technique using a gentle tapping technique on specific points on the face, upper body and hands.

The points that are being tapped on during an EFT Tapping session are points on meridians - the energy pathways that were mapped out by Chinese Medicine and have been in use for thousands of years. 

While related to acupuncture, EFT does not use needles. Instead, we use a simple two pronged process wherein we:

  • mentally "tune in" to specific issues while 
  • stimulating certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. 

Using EFT Tapping you can eliminate negative emotions that are not serving you and can help you change how you feel physically and emotionally. It works quickly, painlessly and extremely effectively to reduce physical pain and negative emotions. 

In many cases, EFT works much more quickly and effectively than years of traditional therapy. 

EFT can be applied directly to physical symptoms for relief without exploring any emotional contributors. However, for the most powerful, longest lasting results with EFT Tapping, we do expect to identify and target related emotional issues. This is done gently and can provide immense relief without being triggering. 

EFT can be used on small every day annoyances and negative feelings and has also been used successfully in cases of post-trauma stress disorder and cases of extreme anxiety. It's also 100% safe to use during pregnancy. 

Whatever your challenge may be, I feel confident that EFT Tapping can help you.

My Approach:  

Real and practical: I like to keeps things real and practical in my sessions. Even though, we are working with energy, I keep our sessions extremely grounded so you leave with tangible results. 

I may give you a small piece of homework like a Tapping script to use at home to reinforce what we worked on together. 

Privacy: Whether we are working together in my clinic in Modi'in or via Zoom, I value your privacy and never share any details of who I work with or the content of what comes up in our sessions. Occasionally, I share client wins and successes on social media, but it's always anonymous and without any identifying details. If you don’t want me to, just say so. 

Safe space: Our sessions are a safe space for you to express how you feel, get validated and to release anything that may be holding you back.

Long term change: I know that EFT Tapping can work quickly but I also know that slow and steady wins the race when it comes to long term change. I don't promise quick fixes but I'm open to them happening for you.

I’ve been working with parents and children for many years as well as being a parents myself so I understand the challenges of raising children.   

I also know that it’s possible to make long-lasting change and that the sooner you get help the better. So you and your child can feel calmer and happier and improve your relationship with each other. 


I’d heard of tapping for years and became interested in it. It was so much more than I expected. I feel a physical and emotional relief. My anxiety reduced greatly. 

Thank you so much for the tapping session. I look forward to doing it with my kids and as a tool for myself in the coming weeks. Thanks again. 

Hi Annette, Good morning, I’m just now finding time to write to you after the treatment a few days ago. It helped me sooo much. I can still feel the tapping on my skin. It felt so releasing and in the moment when it started to become difficult again on my own it really helped. Thank you so much. 

Tapping helped me so much! It really helped me clarify what I want.I feel so much better and so much calmer. Thank you, Annette.

Annette introduced me to the world of tapping and it helped me realise how much I can help myself to release and relax. Annette is a master!! She helped me connect to the good inside, to change my thinking and start thinking more positively. The tapping we have done together has been so powerful. I am only a few months pregnant and for various reasons it has been very stressful and there have been a lot of fears that the pregnancy may not continue. Annette has helped me connect to my baby even under these difficult circumstances and help me feel calmer and more confident about the future. 

Tapping was new to me before I tried it with Annette. Expressing some of my negative thoughts while tapping helped me release them and then find more positive thoughts. I feel like I found a tool to help myself on a day-to-day level. I’m so grateful for this work we did together. It’s profoundly impacted myself and my family and I use it often.  

It’s been really surprising how powerful tapping is and how deep the tapping gets, really fast. I feel like I “tapped into” some of my core issues and dealt with them in a really powerful way. The treatment was very focussed and practical which I didn’t expect. Thank you, Annette.

I feel relaxed and confident in myself and my ability to do things and usually I am scared or worried. My confidence grew quietly while we were tapping. Your gentle approach and quiet voice accompanied me and I am so grateful.

EFT Tapping arrived just when I needed it. Annette helped me to peel away layers of protection and to release things that were weighing me down. After the treatment, sometimes I felt immediate relief and sometimes I felt tired and it took a bit longer to process the feelings and let them sink in. But in the end I always felt how each treatment helped me to move another step forward in my healing and to melt things that were weighing me down. Besides that I also learnt an amazing tool that I can use by myself in challenging moments and that is an amazing gift.
