Emotional Health and an Introduction to EFT
Did you know that your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a bigger determining factor of resilience and success in life than your IQ?
Emotional Intelligence has been identified as one of the top skills for the 21st Century by the World Economic Forum.
What is emotional intelligence anyway? Basically, it’s the ability to notice your emotions, know what you’re feeling, be able to feel what you’re feeling, and know how to navigate through the experience. This leads to greater self integration, which also allows more empathy for others’ emotions, deepening connection and social interactions.
You’d think it was a no brainer to feel your feelings, right? But there’s a big difference between knowing what you’re feeling and being able to experience the emotions.
Most of us have never been taught, or never learned, how to navigate the intensity of ‘bad’ feelings. It’s difficult, and can be literally painful; these uncomfortable emotions are not only in our mind and in our thoughts but also held in our physical bodies. (For example, tightness in your neck and shoulders when you’re worried, tension in your stomach when you’re nervous, or heaviness in your heart when you’re sad).
In this workshop I share how acknowledging and mobilising emotions regulates interactions, physical health, and responses to daily stress. When you use your emotions as your guideposts rather than something to run from, you can be responsive vs. reactive; empowered in life, in health and in your relationships.
I will introduce Emotional Freedom Techniques (also known as EFT or tapping), a simple, practical and useful technique that you learn to use right away. EFT is a powerful tool that helps in the three ‘A’s needed for healing and growth: Awareness, Acceptance and Action.
This is an experiential and interactive workshop including time for Q&A.
FREE resources: You will receive a free mini EFT ‘how to’ card plus a detailed emotions chart.
