EFT Tapping Versus Brainspotting

Alina Frank and Dr. Craig Weiner interview Dr. Adriana Popescu about the similarities and differences between EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques Tapping and Brainspotting.

Comparing EFT Tapping with other Trauma Informed Techniques. This series of interviews is the culmination of a desire to help illustrate the similarities and differences that exist between the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping) and other therapeutic and clinical approaches currently being practiced. For this series we have selected a variety of trauma-informed clinical approaches that we felt would be useful for both practitioners and the public to get insight into how EFT is similar or different to these other techniques. We have carefully chosen clinicians who have either had years of clinical practice or are trainers in these other methods and who also are well trained and familiar with EFT in order to bring you a comprehensive perspective.

According to the Brainspotting website, Brainspotting is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Brainspotting is a simultaneous form of diagnosis and treatment, enhanced with Biolateral sound, which is deep, direct, and powerful yet focused and containing.

Dr. Popescu is a licensed clinical psychologist and empowerment coach with over 25 years of experience in the mental health field. She is also a certified hypnotherapist, Access Consciousness® Facilitator, Brainspotting Practitioner, and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) Practitioner, having discovered that Energy Psychology provides incredibly powerful tools to identify and eliminate the deep-rooted causes of suffering and distress.

She specializes in treating addiction, co-occurring disorders, and trauma, and has directed a number of treatment programs in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is currently the Founder and CEO of Firebird Healing, a treatment center for people healing from trauma.
