Did you know that around 30,000 women every year are diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a direct and indirect result of their experience of being pregnant and giving birth within the UK maternity care systems?
Find out how EFT can help tackle this in a recent article, written by myself and fellow EFT Practitioner Pat Ballantyne, in the latest edition of maternity journal AIMS.

"""EFT is becoming well known as a treatment for trauma and can be particularly effective when the trauma can be identified, as in the case of birth trauma. With EFT the more specific one can be, the more effective the results, but so many people are so traumatised they cannot even begin the process by using words. With mainstream talking therapies, however skilled and experienced the clinician or psychotherapist, the very act of talking about the trauma still forces people to relive it and ‘go there’. With EFT, it is not necessary to actually verbalise the issue at first. Indeed, silent tapping with a professional, while focusing on feelings about the issue, will reduce the intensity to a level where the trauma can be more readily engaged with, always using a minimum of words."
