If, like me, you are struggling with all that is going on in the world right now, please know that you are not alone.
I hear people saying don’t listen to the news, up your self care, focus on your mental health, don’t google etc but the reality is that none of that is possible and all of that is dismissing the VERY REAL AND VALID CONCERNS that we have. It reminded me of someone once telling me ‘ALL IS WELL’ when underneath I felt everything was definitely not well and it made me feel like there was something wrong with me for worrying about it at all.
I want to help you.
I’m putting on emergency virutal group sessions via zoom to pull together help for those feeling completely overwhelmed by the uncertainty and impact coronovirus might have on our lives, our families, our parents, our income, our employment, society, the NHS and more.
These will be using EFT/Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as tapping).
EFT is of huge benefit right now as it works with the nervous system supporting the body to go into a calm response rather than a highly charged state and studies demonstrate it can:
– Decreases cortisol by 43%
– Increases antibodies by 113%
– Reduces anxiety by 40%
– Improves happiness by 31%
We cannot control most of what’s going on around us. We can, however, control our reactions to the situation we are facing. By being part of these sessions, you will work directly with your nervous system helping you to feel calmer, grounded and more in control of your emotions.
“Like many others, I have felt increasingly on edge over the last few weeks as the risk of COVID-19 has moved from a distant concern to a scary reality. The impact it has already had on the world, the uncertainty about how things are going to progress and the inevitable consequences to our society are issues that are clearly worrying many of us. With this in mind I was very grateful to join Tricia’s Zoom session focusing on worries around this emotive subject. Tricia is experienced in teaching EFT (or “tapping”) and was able to quickly explain and demonstrate the tapping sequences before getting right into some scripts. She had clearly prepared well for the session and focused on some common themes as well as taking on board individual worries and concerns. The opportunity to acknowledge my worries around the outbreak helped me to see that I’d been suppressing my feelings more than I realised. Tapping around these feelings allowed me to work through some of my personal worries and definitely reduced my overall levels of stress. Tricia is passionate about the positive impact that regular tapping can have on your life. After today’s session I recognise that taking some time to continue to identify and accept my feelings about the outbreak will help me to protect my mental health in the coming weeks and months. I would not hesitate in recommending her sessions to ANYONE, whether you feel overwhelmed by current events or you believe that you are coping ok.”
