Finding the root cause of addictions can be very hard indeed. Addictions come from the desire to feel better and trauma is often the cause.
Studies have found that there is a direct correlation between severe childhood stress, such as neglect, abuse and domestic violence. This list is not comprehensive of course. Addiction exerts a long and powerful influence on the brain that manifests in three distinct ways: craving for the object of addiction, loss of control over its use, and continuing with it despite adverse consequences. Although breaking an addiction is tough, it can be done.
I went to see Rebecca as there were a few areas of my life which made me feel quite low at times and which I definitely thought had held me back over the years. Some of these issues had been apparent since school.
When I first met Rebecca she had a warm energy about her and made me feel safe and secure immediately. She is highly understanding and empathetic and took time to understand the background to my issues. The EFT itself was new to me, it was hard there and then to understand the lasting positive impact it would have, but 3 months on I am certain it has helped. I do feel like a weight has been lifted and it has helped me put those issues into greater perspective. Rebecca made it clear that she would be there if I ever needed more support in the future. Previously when I have had therapy through other sources I felt as though I had signed up to it for the rest of my life, but that’s not the case here and I felt confident that Rebecca would only prescribe what I actually needed. The setting is relaxed, I felt free to be honest without judgment and it was well worth it. I was initially recommended to Rebecca through a client of hers and I wouldn’t hesitate to pass on the recommendation to others. Thanks again, Rebecca!

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to the root of my concerns. As a police officer responsible for searching for human trafficking victims I had assumed that these traumatic incidents were the reason for my adhoc crying and low mood. Rebecca really took the time and used different techniques to establish the true cause was an unresolved family issue. I am now able to focus on that and am working towards being a lot happier, thanks so much!
When I first met Rebecca she was so welcoming and warm I immediately felt at ease, when we started to get into the treatment there were lots of tears but that started to ease the further we went along and after our first session felt very drained but some how lighter, that continued after each session and I do feel this has helped me move forward from the past. I would recommend Rebecca and EFT to anybody that is ready in there life to make a positive move forward.
