Emotional Freedom Technique

The Emotional Freedom Technique is a fast, effective healing technique that works on the body's Meridian system to permanently clear anxiety, trauma, grief, phobias and emotional disturbances. The results are fast, and most clients feel a significant shift after just one session.

The Emotional Freedom Technique can be highly effective for a wide range of problems including:

  • Fears and Phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Addictions including smoking
  • Weight loss

It can also be used for physical symptoms, by treating the emotional cause.

The process works a bit like peeling an onion. We start by taking a reading on a scale of one to ten on how the emotion or symptom feels. You may notice it in your body as a sensation, such as anxiety in the chest or stomach. If the memory is particularly painful, we will start by taking a reading on how it feels to think about working on this, so that we reduce the intensity around the issue until you feel safe to think about it directly.

You will then tap the series of points in turn whilst focusing on the issue and noting any thoughts that come into your mind. As the issue starts to clear, different aspects of the problem may come to mind, which provides direction for the next round of tapping.

For example, with a fear of spiders, we may start by focusing on the feeling you have when you think about spiders. You will describe the image that comes to mind when you think about them and there will be a number of things about spiders that cause you anxiety. For example, it may be the way a spider moves, the thought of them touching you, the way they look etc. Each of these aspects will be tapped out in turn, until in isolation that particular part no longer scares you.

As we are tapping, a new aspect may come to light or a memory – such as an incident in childhood where you had a run-in with a huge monster spider! If so, these will then also be tapped away.

The session will close down the fears one by one, until you no longer feel any anxiety when thinking about spiders. You will then be asked to try to find something in your mind that still makes you feel afraid. Once nothing more can be found, the work is complete.

Fears and phobias and smoking cessation are usually treated within one 2 hour session, where I use a combination of EFT and hypnotherapy. For emotional issues. Trauma, depression, anxiety and weight loss you are likely to require more than one treatment. But at the end of each session, you will always be left feeling peaceful and calm. In this way it differs from counselling, where emotions are often stirred up during the process, which can leave you feeling raw or sensitive when you leave.

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.
Thankyou !

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
