Hi and welcome - The fact that you are still reading tells me that you are open to new ways of affecting change in your life.  

Congratulations.  You are one step closer to improving your life.

In the past, if there is a problem of any sort in my own life I would search to find solution ... an alternative path so to speak.  This search led me to study various modalities in the field of psychology and self-discovery, and this is when I discovered EFT.

Humbly, I introduce EFT as the method that consistently produces positive results.  

It is the best of both worlds; East and West ... the science of cognitive talk therapy combined with the sublime power of acupressure and meridian energy healing, that releases our emotional blocks and works through all manner of issues.

EFT uses the combination of acupressure and cognitive talk therapy as a re-balancing tool for our nervous system.

When we apply this technique it quickly allows us to experience a shift in our thoughts, our feelings and our body, as EFT allowing for a more peaceful, clear and calm state of being.

EFT has a great deal of research behind it, much of it published in professional, peer-reviewed journals.* In essence, EFT down-regulates our body’s limbic system (our Threat-Response Cycle) decreases stress hormones cascading in the body (Cortisol, Adrenaline) and gives clarity regarding limiting beliefs lodged in our neural pathways 

In simple terms ... it removes the "charge" around an event so it can be recalled as just a moment in time, without affecting your present state of mind or health.

Together, we will address what's bothering you using this safe and gentle process, working towards a change for the better. 

The goal of a session is to get clarity and learn tools that are easy, fun and convenient to use at home.

Based in Amberley, there is an option to meet at my home office...plus there are other ways to connect.

It has been a major frustration of mine that it can be difficult to get help when and where you need it, so there is also an option to meet at your home if that feels more comfortable, or on video conferencing (Zoom). 

Appointments are available week nights as well as week days. Options also available to meet in the weekend if you require, so working together is as accessible as possible.
