EFT & Matrix Reimprinting
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a way of clearing stress and trapped emotions in your body by balancing your energy system. It involves tapping gently with your fingertips on specific acupressure points on the body (based on the energy meridians in Chinese medicine), while tuning into a specific issue or problem at the same time. The process of 'tuning in' brings up the energy of that particular issue so that it can be processed and cleared with the tapping. EFT is effective on a wide range of issues and is also a powerful self-help tool which can be learned very quickly.
Matrix Reimprinting is a technique that facilitates the discovery and transformation of core limiting beliefs, by resolving past traumas and situations in which a person's needs have not been met, particularly in childhood. It uses EFT to clear the charge held in the body from past traumas and a form of creative imagination and visualisation to heal and transform the negative core beliefs that were made at the time of the event, into new helpful beliefs and images. It is based on quantum theory and the new science of epigenetics, which describes how our belief systems (predominantly developed during the first six years of our life) influence our gene expression and our biology. I also offer Matrix Past Life Reimprinting (MPLR) which facilitates transforming core beliefs and processing the traumatic energy held from past life or ancestral traumas and events, including transgenerational trauma.
What to Expect from a Session
EFT & Matrix Reimprinting sessions are 90-minutes long at a cost of £90 per session. I find it helpful to work in 3-session blocks on a specific issue or theme, then take stock and plan further sessions as required. Some issues can improve very quickly with these techniques, however deeper and more long-standing issues can take longer in order to process and heal all the layers.
Before our first session I will telephone you for a free 10-minute conversation to find out the type of issue you would like to address and what you are looking to get from the sessions, to answer any initial questions and to arrange the initial session. Sessions are held in person, in my practice room in St Albans, or online (using Facetime, Skype or Zoom).
In the initial session I will explore your goals with you, teach you the tapping points and EFT process and work on an issue together so that you have an experience of working with me using these techniques. Once you have learned the EFT protocol you will also be able to use EFT as a self-help tool; I have created a EFT Tapping Crib Sheet to remind you of the steps.
Background Information and Resources
EFT was first launched in 1995 by Gary Craig. He offered it as a free self-help tool for all; it has since been developed as a therapeutic tool used by thousands of practitioners worldwide. There have been many research trials worldwide demonstrating the effectiveness of EFT including research by Staffordshire University for the NHS, which resulted in therapists adopting the technique in a Primary Care setting.
Gary Craig's website has a wealth of information, including his official EFT Tapping Tutorial.
I trained with Karl Dawson, who is one of only 29 EFT Founding Masters who trained directly with Gary Craig. Karl subsequently went on to develop Matrix Reimprinting in 2007. His Matrix Reimprinting website has further information about this technique and you can also view my Practitioner profile on the site. His latest book 'Transform Your Beliefs, Transform Your Life: EFT Tapping Using Matrix Reimprinting' gives an excellent overview of the technique.
Further information about the science of epigenetics that underlies Matrix Reimprinting can be found on Bruce Lipton's website and in his book 'The Biology of Belief'. Another excellent book about quantum theory and epigenetics is 'The Genie in your Genes' by Dawson Church, who has conducted many clinical trials into the effectiveness of EFT.
