I qualified with the British School of Reflexology in 1998 and have over twelve years experience treating clients with a wide range of conditions.
My interest in energy work developed during this time and I qualified as an EFT practitioner in 2006 and have the AAMET Level 3 - Advanced Practitioner Certificate. I love using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and other healing techniques with both adults and children and have found them hugely effective for a whole range of problems. My use of EFT, whilst it is based on the work of Gary Craig, it is my own interpretation of his methods. For further information please visit http://www.eftuniverse.com. Recently I have been helping parents with a whole range of issues and I realise this is an area where a little extra support can make a huge difference to the whole family.
Support for new Parents
Becoming a parent is a life-changing experience in anyone’s book and can lead to a huge period of re-adjustment in your life. Whilst we all hope it will be smooth sailing, in reality challenges can arise. New parents can feel very vulnerable for a variety of reasons and help at this crucial stage can allow you to enjoy this valuable time with your baby.
I can support you in the following areas:
- issues around fertility
- anxieties around becoming pregnant or becoming a parent
- dealing with miscarriage
- fear of giving birth
- a traumatic birth experience or one which just didn’t go according to plan
- difficulties bonding with your baby
- finding it hard to adjust to a new routine
The first few years with your new baby -
- Sibling rivalry/other family relationships
- Making decisions about whether to return to work
- Your role as a parent/retaining your own identity
People usually say that parenthood is an amazing and rewarding experience but even when everything goes according to plan it can also be exhausting and overwhelming. Accessing emotional support when it is needed can make a world of difference, so why not give yourself the chance to be the best parent you can be?
