WHAT IS EFT TAPPING?
Emotional Freedom Techniques
For stress management and improving your performance and goal achievement, Lareen uses the highly effective complementary therapy of EFT Tapping – a physical technique that calms your mind, body and emotions and which has a strong scientific evidence base.
Working like “acupuncture-without-needles”, Lareen guides you with EFT as a self-applied acupressure method. This gentle process relieves your stress and body tension, and reduces your negative emotions and limiting beliefs. It’s easy and you don’t need to remember what to do. Once your mind and body have released tension, your mind can adjust with greater clarity too.

Steps to Emotional Freedom
IDENTIFYING THE REAL ISSUE
Often we have negative feelings or limiting blocks but don’t know where they came from or what triggers them. Sometimes it’s bad memories we thought we’d gotten over that are still stewing. You don’t need to know – EFT clears the layers, like unwrapping a pass-the-parcel, to eventually find Happy You in the middle!
LOWERING THE INTENSITY
Even in your first session, Lareen focuses on a goal that will mean you leave feeling how EFT works already. You won’t fix all your problems and totally declutter in one go – that’s like expecting to get really fit in just one or two gym visits – but over some sessions you’ll progressively lower your stress and clear blocks to feeling better.
CLEARING NEGATIVE EMOTIONS
“Think positively” is the new catch-cry. But it often means you ignore how you really feel and what you really think. And it’s a struggle to use willpower to work against how you really feel underneath. Or to use your mind to change your mind. EFT acknowledges your emotions and works with them.

Addressing Emotions Not Logic!
Even though as a professional or academic woman you probably cannot change your work, study or family situation, you are no doubt clever so you try to find solutions with Logic or better Time Management. In fact what’s usually the problem are our Emotional responses which researchers now suggest drive 95% of our behaviours. You may also have negative self-talk, which dominates 80% of most people’s thinking. But it doesn’t have to be this way!
In today’s busy world, many women don’t have time to deal with their emotions or things that have happened, so they ignore them, stuff them down, and soldier on. These emotions and unresolved events then whirr round and round in the background, contributing more to your stressload and draining your energy. Eventually you wonder why you feel so exhausted; maybe you are even suffering burnout or chronic fatigue, or are heading fast in that direction.
In EFT Tapping with Lareen, she guides you to pause and acknowledge what’s happening, to be honest with yourself about how you really feel, to resolve your emotional responses, which brings your emotional brain and your logical brain into balance. It helps you take back your power to gain emotional freedom, feel calmer, clearer and find renewed hope! This is not talk therapy – even though we talk about the issue to focus you while we tap, the tapping is releasing blocked energies and thoughts from your BODY as well as your mind and spirit. This is why it is effective for clearing trauma which is encoded in the body and not encoded through language.
Why work with a Practitioner?
The basics of EFT Tapping can be done by anyone anywhere anytime for self-guided stress relief (Self-Help EFT). However, accredited Advanced EFT Practitioners like Lareen are qualified to use Clinical EFT which is much more advanced and helps you gain the benefits of EFT more quickly and more profoundly.
Clinical EFT also helps clear more challenging or persistent stress issues, even lifelong emotional baggage and past traumas which still have unresolved emotions. While all EFT is highly effective and relatively fast, that can also mean beginners quickly get themselves too deeply into intense emotions or old traumas that they don’t know how to handle; then they think EFT does not work for them.
Lareen can help you in private sessions, groups or workshops, face-to-face or online. She will also teach you basic EFT to apply yourself in daily work and home life. As a skilled practitioner, Lareen keeps you safe and guides you to not only release and clear your current stress in your mind and body, but also to find the underlying causes of your problem towards more lasting Emotional Freedom.
