Lydia Fox is a qualified Emotional Freedom Techniques practitioner. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) also known as “Tapping” is something Lydia feels passionate about and also offers workshops in. She explains a little bit more about her own experience with EFT, who her workshops are suitable for and how EFT works: “I came across EFT many years ago but I didn’t look into it, I thought it was only a quick fix and I just wasn’t ready to explore it. More recently I was struggling with childhood trauma and a friend of mine told me about it again and at the same time it also came up throughout articles I was reading so I decided to attend the course to qualify to be an EFT practitioner and the whole experience really was the answer for me.EFT is a mixture of the East and the West; it is based on acupuncture that the East has been using for thousands of years and more recent sciences from the West, such as neurobiology, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), and quantum physics.
“The whole idea is that the body is energy and electricity, and sometimes the energy gets stuck. This triggers very negative emotions and feelings, and by tapping with your fingertips on specific meridians or energy points located mostly on your face while tuning into the feeling and describing it you can unblock the energy flow. Any negative emotions you’ve had about a particular situation like anger, guilt, and stress can actually disappear completely. The memory of these emotions might still be there but it won’t be emotionally charged anymore.”
Lydia Fox is a qualified EFT practitioner and was trained by EFT Expert and AAMET Trainer Margot Diskin. AAMET International (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques) is the largest Professional EFT Association worldwide. Lydia is continuously updating her skills to ensure that she remains at the forefront of evolution in EFT. She was recently featured in the Sunday Times.
Lydia explains: “The workshops I do are not to train people to become EFT practitioners; They are to empower people to use this tool that is easy to learn for dealing with daily emotionally rooted issues. What I want to teach people who come to my workshop is that instead of reaching straight away for a tablet or comfort food they can tap for a few minutes and it eases off all of the cravings, stress, aches and pains, and phobias. It is a tool that, when used on a regular basis, helps people to think differently about their issues and take control of their healing process. It is a hands-on workshop.”
It is an incredible tool, we have it in us and it is fun and empowering!
Lydia explains her background in teaching and how Limerick is now her home: “I’m originally a qualified teacher of foreign languages with a background in theories of teaching languages and in social psychology. I am specialised in Adult Literacy in English for Asylum Seekers, Political Refugees and Migrants (ESOL). I am still involved in teaching English and Literacy to those communities, whose vast majority of members suffer from learning difficulties, depression and PTSD. EFT has revealed itself to be an incredible tool to help them regain confidence and self-esteem. I am fluent in English, French and Italian. I grew up in France and Italy, but I am now based in Ireland. Limerick is where I am living I have been in Limerick for 23 years, I was just passing by and I met the man who is now my husband and I am still here, I grew up in France so Limerick won!
