What is EFT?
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), also known as Tapping or EFT Tapping, involves gentle, calming techniques, where you tap or massage acupuncture points on your hands, face and body. Research now shows that when you tap on these meridian points, the stress response in your body (the sympathetic nervous system) winds down as you shift to the relaxation response (the parasympathetic nervous system). You are actually sending calming messages to the amygdala, the fight, flight, freeze, or stress centre, of your brain.
You tap while you tune into specific feelings, thoughts or physical discomfort ... whatever issue you are experiencing. As you tap, you come out of the stress response, you calm down and the intensity of your issue reduces.
Once in the relaxation response, you are able to reflect, to question, and to find new ways of looking at your issue … new ways of feeling and being come to the fore.
EFT can help adults and children to develop a natural, healthy relationship with their feelings and to calm themselves in the midst of them … therefore managing stress and growing self-acceptance, confidence and resilience.
MR (Matrix Reimprinting) is another tapping therapy that has evolved from EFT, and uses tapping and visualisation to resolve and rewrite limiting beliefs, allowing new ways of feeling, thinking and being.
These techniques can help with emotional, physical or performance issues - anxiety, fear, nervousness, anger, sadness, grief, self-doubt, feeling down, feeling stuck, energy, pain, discomfort, memories, confidence, performance …
I guide people to the freedom to be themselves, to grow towards their highest potential and to welcome positive change in any area of their lives.
