Has anyone used tapping, either themselves, or via a pro, to treat their kids emotional issues. My daughter has a HUGE issue with being left alone and a colleague at work suggested tapping. Apparently it get amazing results. Anyone have any experience of it? Thanks

Tapping is nonsense. You need a clinical psychologist as suggested above.

Placebo effect.

What have you got to lose? Money, time and a delay in getting proper treatment.
