Integrated Wellbeing Coaching – EFT and NLP

Helping You Overcome Blocks to Positive Change.

I combine two cutting-edge personal development techniques to help overcome unhelpful emotions or behaviours, negative self-talk, anxiety and overwhelm.

I use Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping) and NLP coaching to help you with:

  • Life Challenges/Relationship Problems
  • Self Esteem/Confidence Issues
  • Procrastination/Career Transitions
  • Mild Anxiety, Stress or Fears
  • Health Issues/Chronic Pain
  • Pregnancy & Fertility related Fears and Negative Emotions.

What is NLP coaching?

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is one of the most powerful coaching methodologies and set of tools to help you make dramatic shifts in your life.

NLP uses multiple techniques to help clients understand how they come to think, behave and communicate the way they do and learn to manage their moods and emotions. By believing that the answer to one’s problems lies within, as an NLP coach I can help you simply draw out the answers during safe and relaxed sessions. You will change the way you think and learn which can help bring more positive behaviours and successful goals and achievements.

What is Emotional Freedom Technique/EFT?

Using the science of modern psychology with the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or Meridian Tapping) is a proven evidence-based stress management technique that addresses the root causes of stress to both the body and mind.

The approach relieves symptoms by lightly tapping on various body acupoints. Stimulating the acupoints balances energy meridians that become disrupted through negative memories or experiences. This is often accompanied by positive changes in thinking and transforming limiting beliefs. The technique is easy to learn and ideal for self-help.

How Does it Work?

The research demonstrates that EFT appears to affect the amygdala (stress centre in the brain) and hippocampus (memory centre), and both play a role in the decision process when you decide if something is a threat. Meridian acupoint stimulation deactivates the brains arousal pathways, calming the stress response.

EFT has also been shown to lower cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Too much cortisol can result in lowered immune function and ultimately affect our physical health.  EFT/Tapping is a tool which is practical, hands-on, and easy to apply, it is a unique way to assist people from all walks of life and it has an immediate calming effect.

The research

Over 100 research studies, review articles and meta-analyses been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals
