In all of my work and training, I never thought I would come face-to-face with the day that I actually have to practice what I preach!
I am in the process of becoming a fully registered Psychologist. I have worked with many clients across a variety of settings- children and adolescents in schools, adults with disabilities, as a family counsellor and educator in not-for-profit organisations, and only just recently in a Psychiatric Mental Health hospital. For all of this time, I use to educate my clients on taking care of themselves both psychically and psychologically, however I always put myself last. I did this for such a long period of time, that I ultimately became unwell too…
Now I start my own journey of exactly what it means to ‘put myself first’ and heal myself, before healing others. I have recently quit my job to create my own company- one that will encompass alternative therapies including essential oils, massage, tapping, hypnosis, motivational life coaching as well as mainstream psychology and counselling.
Innovation Wellness is in the pipelines and part of that practice will include ‘tapping’, otherwise known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
Used within the field of Energy Psychology, I refer to tapping as ‘Psychology Acupuncture’ in which the technique works by releasing blockages in the body’s energy system which causes emotional discomfort and stress. These blockages often challenge us emotionally, limiting our beliefs, decreasing our self-confidence and hindering us in our performances- both in our personal and professional lives.
In EFT, we use our fingertips to tap on these points of energy- on the body’s meridians- to unblock the emotional attachment. I like to refer to it as ‘a house of cards’- when we find the very first time we created this negative self-belief or self-doubt, and unblock it, the negative associations that we have made fall down- just like a house of cards!
