EMOTION EXPLORERS: Unlocking Confidence - EFT with Falguni Mather
In this class, we will use EFT or ‘tapping’ to have some fun as we learn how we can help ourselves feel better. We will tap in a group and you will learn some new ways to understand your feelings and what you can do to help yourself. You don’t even have to talk about what the problem is as we tap. You will receive a colourful emotion wheel that you can use every day to say what you feel - to others and to yourself.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a simple and effective way to understand your emotions and feel better about things that are bothering you. It is also known as ‘tapping’, because we tap with our fingers on acupressure points on the hand, head, and torso while focusing on the troublesome issue. You can help yourself feel more relaxed and confident as you tap to reduce bad feelings.
With a background in psychology and a Masters in Counselling, Falguni Mather is an Accredited EFT Practitioner, Trainer and Mentor. She practices as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist in
Hong Kong and has many years experience. Through her studies and explorations, she has gained a true understanding of the interconnectedness of emotions, the mind and the physical body. She recognised that mental narratives are only a part of what limits us, and that it is crucial to connect with our bodies to facilitate self-awareness and healing. This insight has shaped her approach as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. More here: https://falgunimather.com/
