EFT & Matrix Re-imprinting Practitioner
Claire Freeman is a certified EFT & Matrix Re-imprinting Practitioner, as well as a Holistic Parenting Coach. She is passionate about the emotional health of children and applies much of her knowledge in that area to her professional life. Claire believes in treating the client holistically, taking into consideration the mind/body connection. She has a specific interest in helping children and adults with anxiety, where traditional methods don’t work. She currently treats children with chronic anxiety, debilitating fears and limiting beliefs, through the application of EFT and Matrix Re-imprinting. This ground-breaking and non-invasive therapy eliminates negative belief patterns that can hinder lives.
Emotional Freedom Technique (or EFT/Tapping) The simplest way to describe EFT is acupuncture without needles. Anxiety is the body’s natural response to real danger. It is there to preserve our safety. It is a necessary function of survival, however, suffering with anxiety or Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) occurs when a ‘perceived’ threat to our safety is continually detected by the mind’s eye. The mind responds by sending signals to the body, that literally changes our physiology (flight or fight response), leaving us breathless, stressed and overwhelmed. The impact feels ‘real’ and is devastating for the sufferer, leaving them unable to function and essentially destroying their peace of mind. EFT tells the body it is safe even when the mind is attacking it, thus freeing you from the relentless ‘perceived’ threats. When the body doesn’t respond, the mind can essentially ‘let go’ of the threat and thus rest. EFT helps correct the bio-chemical short-circuiting that occurs with chronic anxiety.
The sessions focus on releasing the stress hormone, Cortisol, from the autonomic nervous system, leaving the client feeling visibly lighter and calmer.
Matrix Re-imprinting Is an advanced version of EFT that combines quantum physics and inner child work. Matrix Re-imprinting works on the premise that trauma is trapped in the body on an energetic level. In other words, our subconscious mind holds onto memories that still impact our current lives, even if we have no re-collection of it. During any trauma, feelings can freeze. These frozen feelings resurface years later causing negative behaviour patterns including anxiety, depression and addiction. In the Matrix sessions, we can identify these deep-seated traumas by releasing the emotions associated with that experience.
NB: None of the above therapies are based on traditional talk therapy and are therefore suitable for children who are unable to express themselves. Additionally, the above therapies do not require re-visiting old traumas should the client not want to. Instead, the therapist works with the ‘feeling’ that the client has. For example, one may feel a deep sadness/anger but can’t pinpoint its source of origin. EFT and Matrix will address the feeling itself and release its continuous impact on the mind and body.
