EFT found me in the beginning of 2021 after I moved on from a position as a learning specialist at a private school. After many years of practicing educational therapy and providing support services to students with learning differences and their families, I realized that my scope of practice was no longer broad enough to address the needs of young adults and people in general. The pandemic changed everything. Stress was everywhere, emotional wellbeing had to come first, and the rest would follow.
I attended a workshop and the speaker, a clinical psychologist, presented holistic, self-care practices to release stress and anxiety and enhance wellbeing. She spoke about the body’s stress response. We breathed. We tapped. Within moments, I felt a dramatic shift in my body as my stress lifted. This was something new and different, an embodied approach to reducing stress in just a few moments.
To expand my practice, I began my study of EFT so I can offer its powerful effects to others. It works. I have used EFT tools to process medical issues, the loss of a sibling, and other issues big and small. The events of the past are still there, but the emotional hold they have is released.
