EFT Cafe – Stress Prevention – March 10th 2020

It’s common to talk about EFT/Tapping for stress relief: have a difficult experience, feel bad, tap on those feelings to feel better.

Usually people (even experienced tappers) have to feel really bad before they think of tapping for stress relief.

Rather than wait to feel bad before tapping wouldn’t it be better to reduce your stress response before the experience so you could be calm when the stressful situation happens.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will introduce some approaches to help you be in the ‘eye of the storm’ when it comes, rather than being blown about by it.

This month’s EFT Cafe is on Tuesday, 10th March 2020 at St Oswald’s Hospice Teaching Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne.

EFT Cafe – ‘Ericksonian Tapping’ – 12th February 2020

What would you get if you crossed Ericksonian hypnotherapy with tapping?

One of the things you might get is the ‘Process Instructions Technique’, created by expert tapper Gene Monterastelli.

This is a simple way of combining tapping and the power of the unconscious mind to come up with new solutions and perspectives on our problems and outcomes. No swinging pocket watches or trances required.

To find out more join me at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre next Wednesday at 7pm.

EFT Cafe – Tapping Into Self Compassion – 11th December 2019

Many of us consider compassion towards others to be a great virtue.

We may go out of our way to be kind to others in their time of need.

However, many of us are not good at being compassionate towards ourselves.

Quite the contrary, we can often treat ourselves in ways that we would never dream of treating others.

Somehow everyone else but us is eligible for our compassion.

This is unfortunate because self-compassion has been shown to be hugely beneficial for our emotional well-being.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will be presenting a new and improved version of his Compassionate EFT tapping approach to help us be a little kinder to ourselves – especially over such a high stress holiday.

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 11th December at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne and costs £10.

EFT Cafe – Tapping To Get Going – 13th November 2019

Well begun is half done

A lot of us have trouble getting started on a task or project: writing the article, starting the exercise program or doing the ironing all need to get started started.

Once we have started it’s often easy to make progress, but getting started can be very hard.

It’s easy to avoid the taking the first step.

In this month’s EFT Cafe Andy Hunt will introduce the Stunt Double Process as a precise approach to help us take the first step of any endeavour (and the next).

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 13th November at St Oswald’s Hospice, Newcastle upon Tyne

EFT Cafe – Tapping Into Non-SMART Goals – 9th October 2019

Most people are familiar with the idea of Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timed (SMART) goals: pass the exam in July, paint the house next week, run the marathon in less than three hours, lose 15lb in two months, and so on.

But some goals don’t easily fit into the SMART framework: tap every day, practice meditation, take up regular exercise, finish what you start, learn the piano, be more assertive and so on. These kinds of goals may involve processes, habits or states of mind that run and develop over time.

This month’s EFT Café with a tapping process to help you achieve your non-SMART goals.

So, if you think you should tap but don’t, meditate but haven’t, or take exercise and don’t, finish what you start and don’t, and so on, this could be just for you.

The EFT Cafe is at 7pm on Wednesday 9th October at St Oswald’s Hospice

EFT Cafe – Four Elements Tapping – 11th September 2019

On Wednesday 11th September the ‘Autumn Season’ of the EFT Cafe kicks off with a new process created by my good friend and colleague Masha Bennett.

In standard EFT problems are deconstructed into their emotional aspects and ‘tapped out’ to defuse the emotional blocks and distress that hold those problems in place.

Unfortunately some problems can be hard to deconstruct and process in this way.

Masha Bennett has created ‘Four Elements Tapping‘, a new technique that powerfully combines tapping and metaphor to create a change process that is particularly valuable for problems that are hard to define or just plain stuck.

Join Andy Hunt to learn this new tapping process at the EFT Cafe from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday 11th September 2019 at St Oswald’s Hospice Education Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne. The EFT Cafe costs £10.

Note: Masha Bennett is coming to the north east to present Trauma Awareness For Holistic Therapists in November 2019. If you are an holistic therapist working with clients who have experienced trauma this training could be invaluable.
