Long after danger has passed, the nervous system can hold onto trauma.
Trauma is something that we all experience at some point in our lives. Our resilience is linked to how we manage the experience.
EFT has helped me uncover underlying symptoms that I didn’t even realize I had been carrying. Many of the clients I’ve worked with have experienced the same. So often we attribute anxiety to simply how we are, or how we’ve always been, instead of realizing that it stems from a root cause.
Trauma, whether big or small, can lead to feelings of disconnection, irritability, anxiety, anger, sadness, frustration etc. No one likes feeling those emotions. So what do we do? We distract ourselves. We do everything we can to not feel the emotions. And while this may work for the short term, it doesn’t work for the long haul. The constant distractions can actually lead to more anxiety, irritability, heightened sensitivity and feelings of separateness. It can become a nasty cycle.
But the good news is that you have the power to create change. I fully believe that all the answers we seek can be found within. One of the things that I find to be most important in the process is bringing the body and mind back to a place of safety. Doing so, helps the brain to reset, and begin to rewire itself to create new healthy neural pathways.
Trauma does not have to be all consuming and run your life. Healing is possible. And I promise you, coming home to yourself never felt so good.

EFT For Trauma
If you have experienced trauma, I typically would recommend one-on-one tapping sessions to addressing your specific needs. But, after getting a few requests to do a video about trauma, I put together this 8min tapping video.
