Emotional Freedom Techniques
(EFT) Tapping Session
Often referred to as "Psychological acupressure", this technique works by releasing blockages within the energy system which are the source of emotional intensity and discomfort. These blockages in our energy system, in addition to challenging us emotionally, often lead to limiting beliefs and behaviours and an inability to live life peacefully.
EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on acupuncture points.
Did you know that 1 hour of EFT Tapping can reduce your cortisol levels by 24%? Just resting reduces cortisol by 14%.
What can EFT Tapping help with?
I often hear from women that have spent time working with traditional talk therapists, but are still feeling like they're stuck in the same patterns. Traditional talk therapy gives us insight into the causes of our feelings but it doesn’t always help us feel better.
EFT Tapping works on a subconscious level, allowing what needs healing to come to the surface.
Below are some areas that EFT Tapping can help with.
- Struggling with infertility?
- Feeling fear surrounding birth?
- Nervous about being a parent?
- Experiencing mommy guilt that you want to work through?
- Experiencing emotional distress due to a traumatic birth?
- Experiencing intrusive thoughts?
- Worried about events that happened during previous pregnancies or births?
- Feeling uncontrollable anger or rage?
- Struggling with emotions around previous miscarriages or abortions?
- Having a hard time with releasing perfectionist tendencies?
- Feeling emotions surrounding traumas in your life that are resurfacing?
- Feeling postpartum blues or symptoms of postpartum depression or anxiety?
- Feeling sadness about the loss of your “old life”?
- Are you feeling unattractive?
- Feeling guilty because you are not enjoying pregnancy? or motherhood?
- Feeling upset over your changing relationship with your spouse?
- Feeling guilty about not having enough time for your other children?
- Feeling fear that you won’t be a good enough parent?
- Feeling pregnancy/postpartum related pain or illness? Including nausea.
All of these feelings and questions can prevent us from enjoying what we hope will be an exciting time in our lives. For many parents, this time amplifies anxieties and fears as we face the unknown.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Tapping can gently reduce any negative emotions, allowing you to experience your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period with less stress and more joy.
We will work to get to the root of what's going on, so you can move forward with more ease.
I had a tapping session with Leah and was it ever a cool experience!! The issues we tapped on are now a distant memory and I honestly feel like her skill and compassion really enabled me to be relaxed and able to let go!
