Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Practitioner
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping – like acupuncture but without the needles. Energy points are gently tapped to connect the mind/body bringing about positive changes in emotions, thoughts and behaviour.
Qualifications & Training: I am proud to be an accredited practitioner with the EFT and Mindfulness centre.
About Me: Having used EFT myself for over 15 years, becoming a practitioner seemed the natural next step. I have found tapping to be an indispensable tool that has helped me navigate personal and professional challenges as calmly and positively as possible. I describe EFT as ‘emotional weeding’: rather than ignoring what is bothering us, we acknowledge the emotion and by connecting the mind and body are able to release it.
As an educator, I have run EFT workshops to support examination stress, deal with procrastination and to support wellbeing within the pastoral system.
I am delighted to be able to offer in person sessions at The Tower Clinic, Cookridge: a calm and friendly location to help deal with stress, problematic relationships or negative experiences.
I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
How I can help: Is there something that you want to let go of? Do you have negative emotions, fears or phobias? Is there a situation or relationship that you find challenging? Are you preparing for a high pressure situation e.g. an exam, presentation or interview?
We know that when we are under pressure we feel emotions in our body, think about the ‘butterflies’ we feel in our stomach or when our hands become clammy when we are nervous. Often we hold emotion in our body without realising it and if this goes unchecked it can lead to physical issues. The joy of EFT is that it connects the mind and the body, the logical and the emotional. We may ‘tell ourselves’ that an event is in the past, but then something happens and we are back to square one. Does this sound familiar? EFT can help with:
- Stress & anxiety
- Negative emotions
- Challenging relationships
- Fears & Phobias
- … and lots more!
What to expect: Information about EFT can be found at the EFT & Mindfulness website. At your first session, you may be a little nervous so I will put you at ease and give you a chance to talk a little about yourself, never feel afraid to mention anything that may help me to understand you better. We will then go through your Client Information Form and I will establish from this and what you tell me, how I can best help you. I will always encourage you to ask any questions before deciding whether to go ahead with the session.
Duration of sessions: The duration of each session is approximately 55 mins – 1 hour and the session will come to a natural close which may go over by a few minutes.
How many sessions? Some people, who have not had the problem very long or who have a good insight into their problem, may only need a few sessions. Others may have complex issues that are deep rooted that may require longer. It is important to give EFT a chance to work and if you follow my suggestions outside of our sessions, it will speed up the process.
Payment of fee: £60 per hour – payable by bank transfer in advance of the session.
Free Initial Consultation: Please reach out if you would like to find out more about Emotional Freedom Technique and have an initial 15 min consultation. It will be a chance for you to share what you would like to let go of or change and we can discuss what would be best moving forwards.
Cancellation/Rescheduling policy: if you have to reschedule a session, please give 48 hrs notice. If less than 48 hrs notice is given, I have to charge a loss of earnings fee of 25%.
