What A Difference a Year Makes
This time last year last year I just been made redundant again. Rather than looking for another job I decided to give it my all in setting up my own business.
Now one of the many challenges I faced with this was in becoming visible. You see I had a real issue with having my photograph taken and not in a precious way. It went back to childhood trauma stuff and inappropriate photos being taken. This left me always feeling very uncomfortable in front of a camera, mostly awkward, sometimes inexplicably angry and sometimes even physically sick.
In September of last year, I attended the level one and two Emotional Freedom Technique workshop. I was curious to know more about this process and to see if it could be useful in terms of working with my clients. In a live demonstration of the “Tearless Trauma” technique the tutor was able to help me clear all the negative emotions associated with having my photograph taken.
The attached photo is one of a series that was taken in December by a professional photographer for my business headshots. It was a 3 hour session with hundreds of pictures being taken and not once did I feel uncomfortable, awkward, angry or sick.
Not only that I have just completed a series of 5 videos for a FREE Taking Care of Superwoman Challenge, with no internal judgement or criticism.
Now this may not seem like such a big deal for some people but for me this has been a phenomenal leap and it is mostly down to this simple technique known as Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT / Tapping.
