EFT and Guided Meditation

Group EFT tapping followed by a guided meditation to build a strong sense of connection to self. Access your emotional energy to release tension, get grounded and start your day on an uplifting note.

Experience the power of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and “borrow benefits” as we tap together in a small group. Taping not only calms the nervous system, but as we tap in a group we reduce the intensity of our issues even as we tap on what others bring up.

We end with a meditation, either sitting or laying down. The meditation is guided, helping you to
– feel more centred
– access safety and comfort in your body
– connect with self
– be at ease in your physical and emotional body.
Helping you to be present in the moment to increase your sense of vitality & aliveness.

Access a more grounded sense of self to feel calm, collected and confident.

Setting and achieving goals for teenagers at this time of life can be stressful and time is scarce!

In two 90 minute sessions, teens will learn and practice the EFT Tapping technique and save many hours spent worrying, feeling upset or procrastinating on assignments and school work.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), or tapping, is a self-applied stress management tool that can help with:

  • Fear of failure
  • Perfectionism
  • Low moods
  • Lack of confidence
  • Procrastination
  • Worries about the future
  • Insomnia
  • Exam stress (tip: you can stealth tap under the desk)
  • Relationships/family conflicts
  • Sports performance

Videos demonstrating the efficacy of EFT:

EFT is an evidence based stress management technique

EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals. Here is a link to five papers on its use with students.

Catherine and Falguni have both taught tapping to their children to help them: feel empowered in relationships with others at school, reduce fears about a past accident on the school bus, recover from meltdown before GCSEs, understand the reasons for their procrastination to finally complete important assignments, overcome insomnia to get sleep the night before the SAT, and deal with friendship woes.
In turn, they have taught it to their friends to reduce opening night jitters and to feel calmly confident against a very tall basketball opponent!

EFT is quick and easy to learn. We will keep the group capped at eight to ensure each participant gets ample time and practice.

Please feel free to get in touch with Falguni or Catherine with any questions or concerns. We look forward to sharing tapping with your kids!

Parenting with a difference!

facilitated by Falguni Mather, MCouns., Counsellor
Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner with EFT International

Date: Monday 30 March, 10am-2pm (see the calendar for other dates)
Venue: The Body Group, Central HK
Fee: $1,250 / person

Conscious Parenting workshopFrom homework, bed time, sibling rivalry and bullying issues to leaving for university, dating, and beyond – parenting can be an emotional roller coaster no matter how old your children are, bringing the stress of frustration, worry, guilt, and even self doubt.

Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs in the world and yet we get no formal training; we often parent from the unconscious basis of our own experience.


Did you know that your own inner child has a role in your parenting style?
Learn to notice how your own internal patterns are impacting your relationship with your child.

“ Your own life as a child is one of the strongest influences on how you parent today” – Robin Grille, Psychologist, Parenting Educator

This workshop focuses on creating an authentic connection with your child vs. managing your child’s behaviour. Based on decades of research which shows that a strong and healthy bond with your child is the foundation needed for him or her to be self-assured, empathic and resilient.


As a parent myself, I know how stress can build up and affect all the family members. Learning to parent “consciously” has been life changing for me as a parent. My children are now 17 and 20 years old, and our relationship has never been better. I am passionate about sharing my work with all parents out there because I know this works.

Spend less time stressing and more time loving. Learn the EFT technique for your own stress and worries, as well as how to teach it to your children. Plus listening skills, building rapport and developing empathy.

This workshop will address:

  • Calming young children having strong emotional feelings
  • Dealing with nightmares and fears
  • Issues with friends, bullying, isolation, feeling left out
  • Aches and pains
  • School/University stress, confidence, performance anxiety
  • Moving school, home or country
  • Helping children of all ages deal with stress in their lives

Helpful for you as a parent to address:

  • Building a closer bond and connection with your child
  • Recognising fears vs. values
  • Frustration with sibling rivalry, child’s behaviour
  • Anger with children
  • Exhaustion as a parent
  • Feeling like a bad parent
  • Not feeling connected to your child/children
  • Helpless with helping your child
  • Feeling alone as a parent

Learn to be consciously present with your children, recognise their needs, so they can effectively deal with life’s challenges and have the confidence and resilience to pursue their dreams.

“The greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of the parents.” – Carl Jung

6 Week Support Group

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Support Group for Emotional Well Being: 6 sessions over 6 weeks

Are you in need of support for self-care, to maximise your emotional well-being?

It’s so much easier sometimes to get by in life using the same old coping mechanisms. But you could choose differently, to value yourself enough to reach out and connect and learn new ways to start living instead of coping.

Sharing and being supported in a group can be profoundly helpful; it can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, bringing new solutions as you build connection with the other group members.

In this closed support group, we practice the EFT tapping technique, grounding and breath exercises, self-compassion and mindfulness as we share our experiences within the confidential group space.

You will come away with practical tools and strategies to implement into your busy life.

This weekly group is an opportunity to receive continuous support for your emotional well being. It provides a safe and confidential space to free us from the emotional burdens that we all carry with us. Bring any issues you know are weighing you down, limiting you or holding you back and be open to receiving support.

A cost effective option compared to individual sessions.

Each group accommodates maximum 6 people and runs once a week over 6 weeks.

Weekly 10:00am – 12:00pm
Cost 330/session (1,980 for 6 weeks)

Please send me an email to book your space.

EFT tapping group for your community

Are you part of a community that struggles with similar difficulties?
Do you find that simply talking about those problems doesn’t bring permanent solutions or the relief that you seek?

Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, resulting in new solutions. Furthermore, working in groups can ease a sense of isolation as it can build connection with the other members. The same as individual sessions, group sessions and workshops are also completely confidential. Attending a group session is also a cost effective way of accessing support for yourself.

Host an EFT Workshop and support group in your community, for example:
– Parents’ group
– Dealing with Divorce
– New mothers’ group
– Coping with serious illness
– Trauma recovery group
– LGBT support group
– Grieving and loss support, or similar.
I offer an Introduction to EFT and support groups to fit the specific needs of your group or community.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) is a powerful yet simple and effective way to get to the roots of stresses we carry, reducing or eliminating negative feelings, so we can be empowered to move forward.

Let your breath be your guide

When we feel anxious, panicky, or even unconsciously stressed, we tend to take short breaths (called shallow breathing or chest breathing). As a result, our body doesn’t receive enough oxygen, which limits blood flow to important organs and creates tension in our muscles and joints.
This is a physiological reaction to perceived external danger, so when we continuously take shallow breaths we are actually sending signals to our body that we are under threat.

Anything from being stuck in a traffic jam or standing in a long queue, to feeling claustrophobic in a crowded space or even remembering a past traumatic event, can make us anxious and put us into stress mode. Our minds can perceive these situations as threatening/stressful and our body reacts to our thought patterns.

It is imperative to start becoming aware of when we are putting ourselves into stress mode, as these are usually subconscious reactions.

When we breathe full, deep breaths using the full capacity of our lungs, not only are we nourishing our cells with more oxygen, but we are sending calming signals to our body.

In the same way that stressful thoughts in our subconscious mind can create negative changes in our physical body, initiating conscious changes (breathing) in our body can create a calmer state of mind.

  • Stressful thoughts = shallow breath & tightness in muscles
  • Deep, full breaths = calmer mind + calmer body

Harvard cardiologist Herbert Benson, MD, identified the flip side of the stress response, which he called the “relaxation response.” Benson demonstrated that meditation, yoga, and other relaxation techniques can bring about physiological changes including a lower heart rate, lower breathing rate, and decreased muscle tension along with positive changes in brain waves. Mind-body techniques that elicit this relaxation response have been successful in treating many stress-related disorders.

Correct and conscious breath is the first and most simple step toward releasing stress and anxiety.


Try this exercise:
To find out how you are breathing, place one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. On every inhale, notice your chest rising. Notice your abdomen too – does it move?

  • If it doesn’t, then your breath is shallow.
  • If your abdomen moves in on an inhale, your breath is inverted (and still shallow).
  • If your chest as well as your abdomen rise when you breathe in, you are breathing good, relaxed breaths – well done!

If you find it difficult to breathe into your abdomen, try this:

  • Try to imagine that your abdomen is like a balloon
  • As you breathe in slowly, let the air fill up your abdomen as if you are filling a balloon with air, letting your abdomen rise before your chest
  • As you exhale, let your chest go in then your abdomen, as if deflating the balloon
  • Do this exercise 3 – 4 times and feel your body become calm.

There are many breathing techniques and exercises that we can use to release stress from our body & mind. The first step, as always, is to be mindful, to become aware. Only then can we pause and step back before we can breathe our way to a sense of calm and to new perspectives.
