I am an EFT International accredited practitioner who trained with Sue Beer and Emma Roberts, EFT Masters at the EFT Centre in London. I was interested in EFT as I could see the significant changes that can be made to peoples lives for the better. EFT is such a great tool that can be applied to help anyone with their journey resulting in the healing, restoring, improving and living the life you want.
My professional background has always been people focused involving listening, helping and resolving their issues. My EFT specialisms include anxiety and grief. I have seen first hand how Tapping can help in dealing with those feelings specifically, however I work with people on a whole range of other emotional issues too. I am also a bereavement volunteer, helping individuals to process their grief and loss. By introducing EFT into their lives, their day-to-day living becomes much more manageable.
Sometimes we don't even know where our negative thoughts, feelings and beliefs originated, but there is usually an emotion behind it. As an intuitive person, I believe I can help you clear the blocks that are stopping you living the life that you really want. You might have these certain beliefs, but a belief is just a thought and a thought can be changed and the healing can begin. Therefore I can teach you to work on yourself with EFT that can really make a difference to the ups and downs of your life and restoring your health and wellbeing.
I am fully insured, and accredited with EFT international.
What is Emotional Freedom Technique?
EFT is a complimentary treatment for health and wellbeing. It involves gentle fingertip tapping on acupuncture points on the body whilst tuning into the issue at hand. This process is thought to send calming signals to the brain that controls stress. The therapeutic effects of this technique are recognized around the world.
New research carried out by the Bond University in Queensland, Australia has just published in the American Psychological Association Journal, Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice and Policy shows that using EFT can reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. In addition, there are also 100+ studies published, particularly the meta analysis, that really does show that something is happening.
EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. We ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back. It has long been recognised that the body and mind are interconnected and that emotional well-being is central to physical health.
EFT has been described as “like acupuncture but without the needles” as you gently tap on certain parts of the face and body whilst you concentrate on a specific issue.
Difficulties may arise when we use only a particular part of the brain to look at an issue or memory. EFT uses simple methods to allow you to use different parts of the brain to provide a more balanced view.
From your first session, EFT provides you with simple tools to take away and apply to your own personal issues. The great news is that results can be long lasting as you let go of unhelpful thoughts, emotions and feelings. You will find that your body also has less stress and tension.
EFT can help for a number of issues including:
- Anxiety and panic disorders
- Pain management
- Bereavement and loss
- Emotional abuse
- Family and relationship issues
- Low self-esteem / self-confidence
- Weight Loss
- Quit Smoking
- Phobias e.g. spiders!

How many sessions will I need?
Some issues can be cleared, permanently, with as little as 1 to 2 sessions of EFT but for complex problems, where there are different aspects and issues to consider and tap on, several sessions may be needed. Sometimes clients come with what they think is a huge issue, to find that it clears with EFT surprisingly quickly. Other times, issues emerge after one layer of the problem has been “dealt with” leading to further work.
The human body is incredible and has the innate ability to heal itself, but we need to be able to understand what it is trying to tell us. EFT can help us work out what that is! We have our own energy system, where energy flows through us and surrounds us. When that energy is free flowing, we feel good and all is well with the world, but when it is blocked or depleted, we feel the total opposite and can even suffer a range of issues including physical pain, fears and phobias.
What people say about me...
I have been attending Tapping sessions with Julie over a period of about 8 months seeing her weekly, fortnightly or monthly as required. My overall impression of Tapping has been extremely positive.
This is my first experience of this therapy and thanks to Julie I found it be extremely helpful and therapeutic. It has certainly enabled me to move forward with a variety of issues that I have been struggling with for a long time. I especially liked the fact that the benefits from my sessions with Julie could be reinforced with Tapping sessions at home thanks to her guidance.
I found Julie to be an extremely empathetic and thoughtful practitioner who quickly sought to create a good rapport with me. Her voice was a calming constant throughout the sessions and I found it very comforting and reassuring.
At the end of the session, without fail, I always felt better than at the beginning as I felt I had worked through issues effectively and tapped on them to a degree where I felt I had moved forward. Dealing with anxiety issues for example I always felt less anxious at the end of a session. Julie supported the Tapping with breathing techniques which worked in tandem to allay my anxiety.
I would have no hesitation in commending and recommending Julie as a Tapping therapist.
