Emotional Freedom Technique

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or Tapping Therapy was created by Gary Craig in 1995 and combines ancient eastern philosophy with modern-day psychology. It is a method whereby the tapping of certain pressure points balances the body’s energy system holistically, sending calming signals to the brain and therefore the body. This means that stress can be alleviated in relation to anything, whether it be an emotional or physical issue, past or present.

Mindfulness has been adapted in a secular way from Buddhist practice by Jon Kabat-Zinn, designed as a beneficial way of living one’s life.  It increases self-awareness, the enjoyment and gratitude for life’s small details and to find peace and stillness within.  It involves focus on the breath or other points of focus to bring awareness to the present moment to reduce thoughts, enhance calm and learn methods to meet our own needs or those of others in a non-reactionary way.

What should people wear for the treatment?

Clients are seated for the session and can wear normal comfortable clothing.

Recommendation for treatment frequency

One session is ideal for learning EFT for a client’s own personal use.  If there are issues from the client’s life that are significantly affecting their lives, a client can continue further sessions either in person or via zoom on a weekly or fortnightly basis.  Mindfulness methods are often combined within the EFT session or specific mindfulness sessions can be booked to deepen learning and practice of this way of being.

Testimonials

“It was my first time seeking therapy therefore I was unsure how it would go and if it would help to reduce my anxiety, however Nicky instantly made me feel relaxed and able to share my feelings. Furthermore I am able to apply the techniques Nicky taught me to all aspects of my life.” B.E

 

I have seen Nicky for 4 EFT sessions so far and I can honestly say they have had a profound effect on me.  From the first meeting with Nicky I felt very comfortable and ready to start my journey.  Over the past few years I have had multiple CBT therapy sessions after some traumatic experiences in life but was still struggling to deal with negative thoughts and anxiety which I now understand I was carrying with me all the time.  I found Nicky online and after the first session of EFT I felt very different, it had a huge impact on me and helped me understand my emotions and accept and process what had happened to me.  Nicky is very welcoming and instinctive and I was very comfortable working with her.  She has taught me techniques I can use in day to day life when I am feeling overwhelmed I can honestly say finding Nicky was one of the best things I have ever done for me, it has been truly life changing and I will be forever grateful.  S.M
