Emotional Freedom Technique
I was first introduced to the concept of 'tapping' by a GP on a course I was on. To be honest, I thought it sounded a bit weird and I was rather sceptical but as she told me about some of the successes she had had, I decided to look into it a bit more. The following year, I started my training in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and have never looked back. I have found EFT, also known tapping, to be such a useful tool to deal with everyday issues that bother me but also to clear some of those deeper issues from my past that used to come back to bite me when I had too much time to think.
The basic EFT principle is that the cause of all negative emotion is a disruption in the body’s energy system and therefore, the appropriate point of intervention is on the body’s energy system. It involves focusing on the feeling we want to change while tapping on specific points on the meridians with the intention of reducing or eliminating a particular issue or problem.
It is simple and easy to learn, which means that you can continue using the technique after the session to help overcome day to day frustrations.
Clients have reported that EFT has helped them overcome negative emotions, including anxiety, sadness, fear, guilt and anger, helping them to move forward with their lives.
Please note EFT is never a replacement for necessary conventional medical care, but used sensibly, it can be a valuable resource that can help improve health care outcomes.

EFT with Dancing in the Rain
An EFT session generally lasts an hour but some people like to have a longer session, especially in the beginning. Before starting, there is a short health questionnaire to help us focus on the issues you would like to work on. This is very much a client led session, it's not about diagnosing or judging, it's about helping you reduce negative emotions so that you can make objective decisions moving forward.
