What is EFT?
EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, and is often referred to quite simply as 'Tapping".
It is a powerful but gentle technique that can be used to resolve a range of issues. It's based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology, and can be used a self-help tool, or under the guidance of an EFT Practitioner such as myself.
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.
