‘I had a very messy break up with my partner, it appeared to come from nowhere and I was left thinking it was all my fault, that I was somehow flawed and I couldn’t find the resolve from him to what I did wrong. I’d cry every morning on my way to work, and just about hold it together during the day, before crying myself to sleep at night. I thought this would be over, and couldn’t understand why months and months later I was still stuck in this awful state. I was so annoyed with myself too as thought I should just snap out of it. I found Karen and started to use EFT to release the blocks, and cried through a few sessions, but each time the tightness in my chest and throat lessened as I let out the emotions and began to accept the break up and be able to move forward, by exploring my part in it, how my overthinking had added layers upon layers of more negative emotions and nothing factual to the situation. After a course of EFT I felt stronger, clearer and able to move on with my life. Sometimes we all get stuck and need a little help. G, 47.’
