About me

Opportunity for you to tap into better health! Message from Val:

"If you are ready, or even if you think you are not ready, it IS possible to release those issues or any fears or anything that is not serving you, such as self-limiting beliefs. Letting GO can be resistant. Very often we are blocking ourselves- you know getting in our own way!

Through my training in Thought Field Therapy (TFT) with Dr Roger Callahan I have learned about what he calls Psychological Reversal, how to correct it, then the release can flow and the negative thoughts/emotions dissolve."
You too can repeatedly and consistently conquer the fear, anxiety, trauma, toxic guilt, shame, upsetting stress, anger, frustration, tension, phobias and all the other emotional "stuff" that's holding you back from living the life of your dreams.

TFT is a cutting edge treatment that you can use to conquer emotional distress quickly and safely with no side effects and without having to go through years of therapy.

You will be given the tools you need to use this powerful yet simple therapy on your own, which is self empowering. You’ll discover how using TFT can change your life for the better.

"Your health is in your hands and with Meridian Tapping - literally at your finger tips!"

"My reason for having TFT was for emotions to be less disruptive in daily life. I feel much less angry and stress based. Sweet cravings have disappeared which helps my general mood. Very impressed as I only had one 2hr session.

Val is very clear and easy to talk to. She explained everything well. I felt relaxed and enjoyed the session. TFT Tapping easy to use in a crisis as simple and quick. Would recommend highly.

Past childhood traumas, car accident and emergency surgery. The effects have been incremental over time. Initially I simply felt happier and relived to be doing something positive about these traumas which were affecting me nowadays more than I realized. After a few weeks I became aware that I was feeling much more energetic, positive and enthusiastic about things generally, as though I had more freedom to do things and it was less of a struggle to achieve things and get things done. In effect it was a bit like having a weight lifted that I didn’t really know was there. It was a great feeling to acknowledge this to myself.

The aim was to get rid of negative stuff, destructive thoughts and feel better about my life. Oh my goodness words fail me. She was so amazingly good. She listened didn’t judge, understood, and my word she helped me more than she realizes.

I feel different about problems that to me were stuck. I had sorted a lot out in my head but just couldn’t let go of the past. I have kept a diary for 26 years, religiously done it. Today out of the blue I thought why? It is so negative and binding. I was very desperate for help, so glad I went to see Val."

Recommendation by physiotherapist after failure to ameliorate severe neck and shoulder pain. Pain thought to be caused by seemingly intractable emotional difficulties. 5 sessions x 1hr

"For the first time in my life I have understood that I am as valuable, lovable, respect worthy as any one else. I hope and believe that years of self harming including Anorexia, determined suicide attempts and minor defacements (like a schoolboy keeping a 'good scab going') are at an end.

I do feel extremely positive and as a result I have been sorting out and letting go several bags of books and a lot of rubbish that has accumulated in my studio too. Suddenly caring for my home - as my outer skin - has seemed important. Thank you Val so much."

Val notes: Now that the issues causing pain have been looked at and released using TFT she has been able to play her clarinet, paint & draw for longer periods and tackle some gardening.

"How do you do it, why does it work? All I know is this; following a couple of sessions with you my claustrophobia has reduced dramatically.

For many years I would take any route to avoid travelling on the tube and although walking is a good alternative, as I am in London for work many days each week, walking is not the best solution to getting around town! Buses can take ages and taxis would end up being used far too often.

Flying caused even greater anxiety and most previous attempts to overcome my fear of flying did little to reduce my stress. A couple of sessions with you have resulted in a number of benefits;-

a) I can travel all over London by tube.

b) I have returned from a long haul holiday with no flying anxiety.

c) I have more money in my purse.
One side affect is that London Taxi driver’s are bemoaning the loss of my income!

Thank you so much for sorting out so simply and easily an issue that has troubled me for years, what an amazing skill you have."

Yours, a stress free, Martina
