Whilst Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping has produced remarkable clinical results, it must still be considered to be in the experimental stage. And therefore, practitioners and the public must take care and responsibility for their use of it.

The services provided by Melissa Kovacevic from Functional Health Canberra for Real Food Freedom is educational in nature.

EFT is not intended to diagnose, prescribe or treat any disease, physical or mental.

EFT is different to counselling and traditional talk therapy. Although we do combine elements of exposure therapy, cognitive therapy and mindfulness in EFT, the focus is on the “tapping” on acupressure points, as research has demonstrated this to be the active ingredient.

Neither EFT nor the content on this website is intended as a substitute for regular medical or psychiatric or psychological care.

Please consult your current health care providers regarding your use of EFT. Let them know you are using EFT as a stress management tool.

And do not make any changes to your medications or other treatments without consulting your current health care professionals.

There is no guarantee that you will have the same results as the people who have provided testimonials about the Real Food Freedom eCourse, as every person is different. People who learn to use EFT/Tapping themselves in between sessions will often get better results, or in a shorter time frame than people who do not.

Confidentiality & Privacy Practices

I understand that sessions will be held in the strictest confidence. However, there are legal limits to this confidentiality.

If I disclose that I have thoughts or plans to harm myself or another person, Melissa Kovacevic is required by law, as a mandatory reporter, to report ongoing domestic violence, abuse or neglect of children, the elderly or people with disabilities.

Melissa Kovacevic would only disclose private information without consent in order to protect clients or the public from serious harm; for example, if a client discussed plans to commit suicide.
