Shayda Nanji

Edmonton

Registered Professional Counsellor

“Scientists now have more evidence than ever before revealing the intimate, intertwined relationship between the mind and body.” Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one such modality that works on the mind body connection. EFT has been called a stress reduction technique that allows a person to process and change how painful memories and events from the past are experienced. The diversity of successful treatments have ranged from trauma and abuse, phobias, self sabotaging behaviour patterns, to deep set emotional conditions of anxiety and depression, addictions, physical illness, to name but a few. EFT relaxes the sensation of being triggered – the fight or flight response, bringing calmness to the mind and body. The usual response individuals notice with consistent use of EFT over time is inner peace and a stronger sense of general well-being. Working as Pharmacist for over 30 years, has given me a unique perspective in understanding that while medications help, there are times when people need additional help. Someone to talk to, someone who listens, who cares, someone to talk to in a trusting and confidential environment. It was for this reason I decided to further my education and obtained accreditation in Applied Psychology and Counselling and Accreditation as an EFT Advance Practitioner. Time to talk.? If yes, then let us talk together, or tap, or talk and tap at the same time.
