Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner
I have a longtime interest in self-knowledge and self-exploration. I have always been personally drawn to work with the mystery of myself, loving to delve into what excites and/or troubles me to come to greater self-understanding and healing.
This has naturally extended to wanting to help others do the same, and once my kids left home I had more time to devote to this learning. My journey to professional training began with a desire to de-program the guilt that the Catholic church instilled in me as a child (see my website blog article: “Guilt-Edged Imprint”). I searched the internet for ways to reverse the effect using a similar technique to that which anchored it in my body – and was excited to discover EFT.
My curiosity about whether EFT could help me progressed from studying websites to reading books, trying it for myself, consulting a practitioner, and finally to professional training. I received my Advanced EFT practitioner certification from EFT International in January 2022. Over this time I have also been drawn to study related modalities, and the ones that appeal to me most are those where I work in a co-creative partnership with my client. I have compassion, curiosity and some useful tools and skills, and my client comes with an issue to work on, a desire to resolve it, and a readiness to take an active part in their own healing process.
Over time I have used the techniques I have learned to resolve personal issues and bring greater peace to many areas of my life. There is more work to do – there always will be - work on myself, and ongoing training to add to the toolkit of services I have to offer.
I enjoy working with dreams - they offer us powerful symbols and messages from the subconscious, which can be a useful starting place when working with issues that are troubling us.
If I had one major goal with EFT, it would be to help bring greater peace, joy and health to those whom I work with, knowing that the effect would ripple out into the wider community.
