I have a deep interest in people and enjoy listening to my clients. I believe each of us has the inner resources to solve our own problems at our own pace and uncover our True Self. My job is to help you along your own unique healing journey.
I have consistently used EFT in my life since 2010 when I first discovered it - I love that it is so simple and body-based. It's all too easy to talk and talk round in circles, getting in more and more of a muddle about things, but EFT gently cuts through all the chatter and drops us into a deeper space where we can access our own intuition and healing. There is something primal and deeply soothing about tapping on the body: "I am here. Right now I'm ok. This is my body. These are my fingers. I am more than my chattering mind. I am body, mind and spirit." Just like yoga, qigong and other spiritual/somatic practices, EFT provides a nexus between body, mind and spirit, allowing us to integrate all three.
I especially enjoy working with women. I have experienced first hand some women-specific challenges in my life (PMS, miscarriage, motherhood, an abusive relationship within a strongly patriarchal culture). I currently draw strength and nourishment from mother-to-daughter dynamics as I live with both my mother and daughter. I am particularly interested in the lives of other women and enjoy helping them to navigate their own challenges as they also grow and find their paths in life.
I work with individuals one-on-one (online) and also run workshops for groups - please contact me for more details!
I am also a certified qigong teacher. Please sign up here to get email updates of all my qigong classes and workshops.
I support the Peaceful Heart Network (www.peacefulheart.se), a non-profit organisation which works actively to teach TTT (trauma tapping technique) to communities that need it around the world. Contact me for a free TTT session or training.
I completed my EFT Practitioner qualification in 2011, and as of 2020 I am an EFT International Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner. I am a member of EFT International (Member #19092925) and the EFT Guild. I am a professional member of the Complementary Therapists Association.
I started my career with an interest in languages, graduating with an MA (Hons) in Linguistics from the University of Edinburgh in 2000.
I then completed a certificate in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) in 2001, and taught English for a number of years in Asia, later on becoming Senior Teacher and training new teachers in the school, as well as developing a new course in English for Business.
Alongside, I always had an interest in complementary therapies, and in 1999 I trained as a Reiki Level 2 practitioner.
In 2012 I gained level 3 certification in Touch For Health, a diagnostic and healing modality using muscle testing and the principles of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), including meridians, acupoints, neurolymphatic and neurovascular points, and Five Element Theory.
I completed a course in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) foundation skills in 2015.
During my long journey of training in EFT, I have been fortunate to study with three founding masters as endorsed by Gary Craig, the originator of EFT. In 2010 I learned EFT Level 1 with Gwyneth Moss, followed by Practitioner certification in 2011 with Sue Beer and Emma Roberts. In 2020 I progressed to Advanced Practitioner status, also with Emma Roberts and Sue Beer.
With the EFT Guild I have completed the following Modules of Advanced Learning in EFT:
With PESI UK I have taken a 2 day course in Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation (with Janina Fisher PhD). (2023)
I have most recently completed a rigorous 2 year qigong teacher training certification program with the Shiatsu College, London in 2023.
