Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), is a mind-body technique also known as tapping because we tap with our fingertips on acupressure points on the hands, face and body while verbalising the issue we want to resolve.
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 and find complete calm in your body and mind.
Experience the power of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and “borrow benefits” as we tap together in a small group. Tapping helps calm the nervous system, release tension and reduce the intensity of uncomfortable thoughts and feelings in the mind and body.
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 grounded and calm to increase your sense of vitality & aliveness.
Access a more grounded sense of self to feel calm, collected and confident. Notice how tapping before meditation helps you to be more present and relax deeper.

Did you know that your Emotional Intelligence or 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 so you can navigate through the experience. EQ leads to greater self-integration, which 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.
Emotional health is not only about big issues like depression or anxiety. It includes the little worries, frustrations, doubts, sadness or guilt that you experience in your daily life.
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. Learn to use your emotions as your guideposts rather than something to manage or control. Become responsive vs. reactive; empowered in life, in health and in your relationships.
Emotional Freedom Techniques
I will introduce EFT (also known as 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: Receive a free EFT ‘how to’ card plus a detailed emotions chart.
Participant feedback: “The workshop gave me a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of our mind, body, and feelings, along with how to use EFT. My biggest take away was the breathing and tapping technique that I can implement on myself and the student athletes I work with. Thank you Falguni for a warm, inclusive and thought provoking session” -Kadie
Dates, times and venues vary. Please see the calendar for upcoming workshops on this topic.
“Discussing emotions is always tricky for people. But ultimately the society we need to create to sustain the planet depends on our ability to speak emotionally with some sort of comfort or fluency.” – Josh Bernstein

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques.

EFT Tapping for Teens: reduce stress and build resilience
An accelerated learning module on EFT for students ages 15-18 – helping them reduce stress and build resilience. facilitated by Falguni Mather – Counsellor, Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner and Catherine Banson – certified in EFT and authorized instructor of Parent Effectiveness Training & Youth Effectiveness Training
Date & Time: 25th and 27th September 2019, 5:30-7:00pm
Location: The Body Group, 14/F Prosperous Building, 48-52 Des Voeux Road Central, HK. Zoom Follow-ups — one 45 min session will be scheduled in October/ November for ongoing support.
Fee: HK$ 1,380.
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
Lack of confidence
Worries about the future
Exam stress (tip: you can stealth tap under the desk)
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!

From 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. The EFT technique has been invaluable in my journey as a parent, allowing me to have a loving and connected relationship with my children who are now 17 and 21 years old. 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
It’s so much easier sometimes to get by in life using the same old coping mechanisms. We know how to cope and get on with life and that’s how most of us live. But why cope with life when you could live fully, with more energy and vitality? Life will constantly throw things at us; having the resilience to respond with equanimity and clarity is what determines our well-being.
Sharing your stresses in a group, even the daily small frustrations, can be profoundly helpful; it can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light, bringing new solutions and connection with the other group members.
“It felt so good to know I am not the only one with all the small problems! I feel like a normal person and lighter, also! Thanks.”
This closed group has the same members every week for 6 weeks (max. 5 people). We practice EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), grounding and breath exercises, self-compassion and mindfulness as we reflect within the confidential group space.
You will come away with practical tools and strategies to implement into your busy daily life.
Bring any issues you know are weighing you down, limiting you or holding you back – be open to receiving support, discovering your strengths and feeling lighter.
A cost effective option compared to individual sessions.
Each group accommodates a maximum of 5 people and runs once a week over 6 consecutive weeks. This EFT for well-being programme runs in person as well as online. Please check the calendar for dates and venues.
“Through working on an issue weekly over a 6-week period, I was able to go deeper into the area I wanted to work on and have more time in between sessions to observe my behaviour. Over the 6 weeks, I found myself more easily accessing the deeper feelings that were driving behaviours that I wanted to change. I can now better recognise when those feelings are being activated, and I am hoping that over time this will allow me to respond in a way I am happier with, more consistently.”
