From Rock Bottom to Renewal:My Journey with Emotional Freedom Techniques aka EFT tapping.



Have you ever felt like you don't belong, like you're trapped in a cycle you can't break free from? I know that feeling all too well.


From a difficult childhood where I felt like the odd one out, to a toxic and abusive relationship that left me a shell of myself, my journey has been full of challenges. But it was through these difficulties that I discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), a transformative practice that changed my life.


Join me as I share my story of overcoming these obstacles, finding my true self, and ultimately, helping others do the same.



Early Struggles and Feeling Out of Place

Growing up, I often felt like the odd one out in my family. My relationship with my mum was cold and distant, and I struggled to feel a sense of belonging. My mum seemed to favour my brother, and it felt like I was always the one to blame when things went wrong. This lack of connection and support left a void in my life, making me eager to leave home as soon as I could.



Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I was unhappy and desperate for love. So, when a man showed any interest in me, I quickly fell head over heels, grateful to feel loved and appreciated for the first time. When I finally did leave home, I got married and quickly, the relationship turned verbally and emotionally abusive. I became a shell of myself—lacking confidence, self-belief, and a true sense of identity. I felt trapped and unable to see a way out.



Finding the Courage to Leave and Becoming a Counsellor

It took immense courage and strength to leave that toxic environment. The process of rebuilding my life was daunting, but I knew it was necessary. I had to rediscover who I was and what I wanted out of life. Slowly but surely, I began to regain my confidence and sense of self.


After leaving him, I trained to become a counsellor. My main objective was to heal myself. I believed there was an unspoken family rule that we don't talk about our problems; we just smile and carry on. So, in a strange way, even though I was now an adult, I found it really difficult to simply go to counselling myself. Instead, I took the indirect route, thinking I could justify it by saying, "Well, I had to have counselling myself in order to qualify."



Volunteering and Counselling Work

I became a volunteer at Victim Support for a few years, where I supported a family whose loved one had been murdered and also women who had been raped. Additionally, I worked as a counsellor at a women's refuge, helping women understand their patterns so they could find healthy relationships in the future. This work was incredibly rewarding, but I found that traditional counselling had a missing link that I couldn't quite put my finger on.




Searching for the Missing Link

Due to a bereavement, I took a break from counselling and found that I just didn't go back. However, I was still searching for the missing link to heal my own issues.





The Turning Point: Discovering EFT

Years later, when my children grew up and no longer needed me as much, I found myself feeling lost once again. The sense of purpose that came with being a full time mum had diminished, and I was left questioning my place in the world. It was during this time of uncertainty that I discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).



EFT became a pivotal part of my healing journey. It helped me process my emotions, release past traumas, and regain control over my life. Gradually it started to feel safe to break down my protective armour. Through EFT, I found a renewed sense of purpose and a deeper appreciation for life’s possibilities. It allowed me to reconnect with my true self and embrace my unique qualities.
