Q: Why is EFT Slower On My Own?

Q: Re Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Picture Tapping Techniques (PTT):  When I’m in sessions with you, why do I progress so much more quickly and easily than when I do the same work on my own?

A: There are a number of reasons.

1) My many years in practice with a great deal of ongoing study in these fields. I’ve had time to hone the knowledge, abilities and instincts to effectively help you gently process and resolve each safe piece of trauma or subconscious belief that doesn’t work well for you.  

Q: As a therapist, what do you wish your clients knew?

A: That their current state is not their identity. It's not who they are. It's how they're feeling. No matter how long it’s been or how many things they’ve tried, there is a key for every lock. Sometimes it takes more than a few different tries to find it.

This is why I felt compelled to offer a warranty in my practice. So many in my long career have felt hopeless or been financially devastated by the search for answers that I felt morally bound to offer that sense of security. To support the courage to try one more time.

I wish not just my clients, but everybody knew that every part of us in intimately connected to every other part. Our minds, bodies, diet, physical activity, sleep habits, memories, family history and the stories we tell ourselves are all inextricably intertwined; even how our genes behave, known as gene expression. Aside from the highly effective Emotional Freedom tools I use to allow the conscious and subconscious minds to collaborate in figuring out the “rest of the story” one safe piece at a time, improving any other aspects of life will support and accelerate recovery and wholeness.

Simply going for a 30 minute stroll outdoors each day provides a surprising number of physical, mental and emotional advantages. There’s no need to be speed walking or going with the intent to “exercise”. Just the act of moving in the outdoors is free, safe and highly beneficial.

Research shows that taking a walk; seeing other people and being seen is beneficial to the deeply depressed; even if no word is spoken . Another study found that just the act of seeking something to be grateful for each day helped those with major depression. Even if they couldn't identify a single thing to be grateful for, the act of searching helped their mood. Likely by redirecting their focus.

Changing everything at once isn't practical for most people, but small incremental changes along with healing the traumas, fears and limiting subconscious beliefs can have profound effects.

I wish you all good physical, mental and emotional health.

What is an integrative therapist?

Advanced EFT?

Gluten free diet and heavy metals. What you need to know.

I’ve long recommended that clients with Celiac Disease or any other inflammatory bowel conditions make their own food from scratch so they have control over what goes into their bodies.   A recent study funded by the NIH and published in the February edition of the journal “Epidemiology” reinforces that suggestion.

Study says women’s mental sharpness begins to decline as early as age fifty

My problem with this fairly large study is that in many cases, women in their fifties and sixties who have come to me complaining of loss of short term memory and/or brain fog have reported significant improvement when using either of two sophisticated nutrient and anti-inflammatory protocols. In fact clients can claim back product costs from both companies if they fail to experience a powerful enough response.

Recovery from prolonged grief: A second look

During the past decade of using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping) in my wellness center, I’ve worked with many suffering various stages of loss. We all face grief or loss at some point in our lives. For most it’s a painful but appropriate honoring and recognition of that which is gone; followed by the usual stages of recovery. Too often however, I see clients who are stuck. It’s been years or perhaps decades and they still can’t let go.
