  • Are you worried about the birth?
  • Are you frightened by medical procedures?
  • Are you worried about a past birth experience?
  • Are you feeling anxious about how you'll cope with a new baby?
  • Are you concerned about being a parent?

All these questions and more can prevent us enjoying what should be one of the most magical and exciting times in our lives - preparing for the birth of our baby. Unfortunately for many it only serves to heighten anxieties and fears as we face the unknown experience of birth and the challenges and responsibilities of becoming a parent. EFT can simply and gently help reduce these negative emotions enabling you to experience your pregnancy with less stress and more joy and help you to look forward to the birth more positively. 

What is EFT ?

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a remarkable method of reducing and often eliminating negative emotions such as fear, anxiety & anger. The process is quick, painless and simple to learn, with results that are real and can be permanent.

During an EFT session I will show you how to tap on specific points on your face, upper body and hands that link to the meridians. Meridians are ancient Chinese energy pathways in the body that are also used in acupuncture. With EFT a light tapping technique is used instead of needles to balance the energy. Gary Craig, the founder of EFT says:

'The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body's energy system'

Tapping is carried out while you focus on the anxiety/fear therefore causing a disruption in your system. This can often be felt physically as a tightness in the chest or throat, sweaty palms, upset stomach etc. Tapping while focussing on the problem will balance the body's energy so that there is no longer a disruption and the negative emotion is no longer experienced.

EFT can be used in all kinds of situations and has a high success rate - at least 85% - it is quick and easy to learn so that you can use it yourself at home (or anywhere) whenever the need arises.

How can EFT help during pregnancy & the birth itself ?

It can help with all kinds of different feelings, emotions and anxieties e.g.

  • feeling nauseous & unwell
  • not enjoying pregnancy with all its discomforts
  • feeling unattractive
  • fears for the unborn baby
  • fear of hospitals & medical procedures
  • anxiety about the birth itself
  • fear of pain/needles
  • worried about a previous birth experience
  • concerns about being a parent
  • feeling panicky
  • not feeling able to cope

The application of EFT is limitless - once learnt, it can be used at any time, not just during pregnancy and birth. To find out more about EFT visit Gary Craig's website where you can read numerous case studies about its effectiveness.

How much does it cost ?

The first session last 1 ½ hours and costs £40. During this time I will teach you the full EFT procedure so that you can use it yourself after the session. We will also work on your emotional issue/anxiety in the remaining time. Follow up sessions are not always necessary but if they are you will be charged for the time used i.e. £15 for 30 mins.

I practice at my home in Belper, Derbyshire or sessions can be conducted by phone, in which case I would send you instructions by email/mail before we talked to guide you through the procedure.
