Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies, increase self-awareness with a goal of facilitating positive change.
I use Counselling in combination with EFT and/or Hypnotherapy and work with you to determine what you want to do and what is right for you.
Emotional Freedom Technique EFT
EFT is a simple yet powerful stress reduction method which also has been referred to as ‘psychological acupuncture’. It combines psychotherapy and acupressure, bringing together elements of exposure, cognitive therapy and somatic stimulation. EFT can address a range of issues by simply focusing on the issue you would like to address with an acceptance statement, along with a simple two finger tapping on acupressure points on the body. This results in a calming effect on the amygdala (the stress centre of the brain) and the hippocampus (the brains memory centre). Both of them determine if something is, or isn’t, a threat. It seems to have the same calming effect on cortisol – the stress hormone.
Dr Peta Stapleton, Clinical and Health Psychologist in Australia, and world leading Researcher and Trainer in EFT has provided lots of research.
Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress and has an immediate calming effect which in turn is helping to find clarity and solutions.
EFT has shown to have remarkable and positive effects on:
- trauma, birth trauma
- promoting weight loss, maintaining a healthy weight after weight loss, and the elimination of food cravings
- any emotional or physical issues.
EFT is simple and easy to use in the sessions and can have quick and lasting results. I also teach you to use it on your own as a self empowering tool and you can teach it to your family. I use EFT in combination with Counselling in itself or also in combination with Hypnotherapy.
