I draw on a range of different approaches, including; Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping), narrative therapy, multi-systemic family therapy, strengths-based, solutions-focussed and te Whare Tapa Whā. Most importantly, I create therapeutic relationships which are supportive, respectful, and embracing of diversity.
Overtime I have become more interested in the mind-body connection, and aware of the importance of this when it comes to helping bring about change. This led me to train in EFT Tapping, as I find this way of working quite easy to incorporate into therapy sessions.
EFT Tapping helps to regulate the nervous system, supporting it to shift from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic nervous system. This allows other systems within the body to function as they should. EFT can provide relief, promote healing, reduce stress, and can uncover and clear away issues getting in the way of living life how you want to live it.
Incorporating EFT into sessions involves guided self-tapping on acupuncture points around your face upper body and hands, while talking about the issue or concern you would like to work through. EFT Tapping is easy to do and we will go at a pace which is right for you. It will also provide you with a practical tool which you will be able to use yourself whenever you are feeling stressed.
