What is EFT?
Tapping or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a transformational tool that combines gentle touch of certain acupressure points and voicing our thoughts in order to release and transform our feelings, thoughts and experiences.
There is a growing body of work to support the positive effects of EFT and studies have shown that tapping has a direct effect on the amygdala in the brain, reducing cortisol levels and helping you to get out of the flight, fight or freeze response. Using EFT, you can reduce your stress levels and calm the nervous system which allows you to see things more clearly and feel more at peace.
As we begin to notice, acknowledge and transform how we carry our emotions, we begin to see just how this may be contributing to pain, illness or other personal challenges. EFT does not fix or remove emotions, rather it creates a safe space for us to process emotions fully - and when we process we also have the potential to fully release trauma, physical pain and patterns.
Because we are emotional beings, the impacts of tapping is far-reaching, and has many applications.
Stress. Anxiety. Overwhelm. sabotage. Grief. Cravings. Fatigue. Trauma.
All of these issues (and I'm sure many, many more) can be addressed with EFT quickly and effectively.
How do I Tap?
The basic tapping technique involves gentle tapping on certain meridian points on the face and upper body as you focus on or vocalise what you wish to transform.
This could be a negative thought, emotion or even a physical problem like a headache.
As you tap the points, you are making direct impact on the brain to reduce stress and lower cortisol levels. This takes your body out of fight or flight and creates a space where trauma, patterns or negative thinking can be released.

EFT is an effective tool that can be used to get to the root of what's really holding you back. As we tap we gently release stress and may find it easier to see clearly our limiting beliefs or patterns. This allows use to acknowledge and release our attachment to these negative emotions, allowing us to move forward in life.
Tapping can help with a range of issues including weight loss, stress & anxiety, depression, insomnia, lack of self confidence or self worth, physical pain, grief and trauma.
it is important to note that my role as a practitioner is not to diagnose illnesses or disorders, but rather to guide you towards feeling peace from within - less stressed, anxious and feeling lighter.
