Calming and coping strategies

We all know how easy it is to become anxious, frustrated and stressed at work.  We sometimes feel out of our control, and however hard we try to do a good job we can find that people, processes and problems get right in our way.

Stress can be a big deal, and here at The Yorkshire Therapy Company we understand this all too well.  The company was developed as a result of Lauren pursuing her own strategies for coping with pressure and stress during her career in management, and many of our clients are looking for techniques and treatments to achieve a sense of calm, balance and wellbeing.

Learning Reiki


Reiki has become synonymous with complementary therapy in recent years, and there isn't much that is more relaxing than an hour on a couch receiving a treatment.  However, the original purpose of Reiki was about self development, balance and personal well-being.

EFT for panic attacks

Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is a powerful technique that is based on research that recognised how emotional trauma contributes to ill-health and disease.  Clinical trials have shown how EFT is able to decrease the emotional impact of the incidents and memories that can trigger emotional distress, and as this distress is removed or reduced, the body is often able to achieve balance and accelerate healing.  In fact, over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychological journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and other problems (1). 

A recent example here at The Yorkshire Therapy Company has been the use of EFT with a client who has suffered from panic attacks for a number of years.  These panic attacks had become so intense that they were beginning to impact on day to day life, causing stress, embarassment and unhappiness.  After three EFT appointments our client felt that the occurance of these attacks had reduced significantly, and most importantly, he now has a technique to use 'in the moment', during any early signs of a panic attack, stopping them in their track.  How empowering this has been.  We also explored the route cause of these panic attacks, and through ongoing counselling with a trusted colleague, this work is continuing.

Is EFT for you?

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a meridian therapy, originating from the most ancient practices of Japanese acupressure and Chinese acupuncture.   It is a system that is widely applicable in the treatment of phobias and psychological problems as well as providing pain relief, often in a short time period, by tapping on various acupressure points whilst concentrating or discussing the problem, pain or issue.

  A session of EFT allows the routine to be introduced to the client for their own use to complement the session and continue the healing and benefits of the treatment at home, or ‘in the moment’.   EFT works for people of all ages in a range of circumstances – from dealing with exam stress to managing a busy home or improving performance in business.  It has proven success on a wide range of areas, including:

· Managing pain · Defusing phobias · Controlling habits and addictions · Losing weight, or managing food cravings · Stopping smoking · Reducing stress and anxiety · Managing nerves and panic attacks · Improving self-confidence · Enabling change and adjustments in lifestyle · Reducing emotional pain and distress
