What are Emotional Freedom Techniques?
Emotional Freedom Techniques help us release negative emotional blocks that hold us back. It is a cutting edge mix of ancient wisdom and modern integrated psychology.
EFT is a trauma informed, easy to learn intervention that guides us back to our strong and emotionally healthy true self.

When I discovered EFT (and then other integrated psychology modalities) I started to experience deep inner change and let go of the negative emotions and the painful voice of the inner critic that was holding me back.
One of the greatest assets EFT brings is that it guides us to help ourselves. You can use EFT anywhere, in bed, in the shower or while taking a walk.
You can also use it as a sophisticated therapy tool with a skilled EFT practitioner.
I found EFT at a difficult time in my own life. I had tried many different therapies (psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and body work) while looking for help and inner peace and although some had bought short lived relief, I hadn’t resolved the deep emotional scars I was holding inside which were affecting my strength, confidence and ability to shine in the world.
Today, EFT continues to delight and amaze me with its gentle, effective approach and most importantly, the long-lasting results I see in myself and with my clients.
An Integrated Psychology Skill
Are you troubled by repeating negative emotional patterns in your life that just don’t get better? Do you keep going back to the same negative place time and time again, even after years of therapy or self-help?
EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques (or EFT Tapping as its sometimes known) might be the answer you are looking for. It was for me.
EFT for Trauma
EFT Tapping is gentle, trauma informed technique and it deeply fits with polyvagally informed treatments. Stephen Porges, the creater of the polyvagal theory, was recently able to bring some new light to the skilled use of EFT.
Porges pointed out that some of the advanced procedures do so much more on a physiological level than pure talk. The eye advanced eye movements we use stimulate facial nerves, and when we introduce humming (during the 9 gamut integration sequence) this would help stimulate the social engagement system.
Both of these vital interventions help us to increase a state of safety at the vagal level. From a place of safety we can process the past.

“I started the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) a couple of months ago. The results have been startling and illuminating. Through tapping therapy and gentle guidance from Kate, I started to unravel what was holding me back. I am now 63 and some of this went back over 55 years ago. Quite a revelation … there were tears, laughter, silence, patience, pain and realisation …. I am now a different person, kinder to myself and others, I’m not an angel but also, I don’t now have devils driving me. I have the happy acceptance of what you see is what you get and I revel in it. If there was one benefit I could take from this is that it wasn’t all my fault.“
“The tapping has helped greatly. Mentally, as well as physically, I tap. It’s easy for me now and if there is something that comes along that I am fearful of, I ask myself ‘why’ tap and think it through and try not to run away from the fear.
“My sleep has improved and I feel much more refreshed and better able to be efficient. I particularly like Kate’s gentle and caring style of running her class. I feel 100% safe with her – something which, after having suffered much abuse when young, is of prime importance to me and I am simply overjoyed that I have (finally) found something that works for me.“
