I'm writing this post to share my recent breakthrough.
As you may already be aware, I work with EFT (emotional Freedom technique) for many clients. It is a technique that has a profound effect and it never ceases to amaze me how something some so simple can free the most complex of emotional imbalances.
I have gained a lot of experience with EFT over the years, mostly dealing with emotional attachments to events or people and even a few that dealt with phobias but I’d never done EFT with a client for food cravings and addictions before.
I knew EFT was said to help this, but I wasn't sure if it could personally, so I never highlighted it to clients as an option... until now ;-)
Last week I had a client ask me to do EFT with them for their addiction to lucozade, they couldn’t stop drinking it. This person is very healthy and fit generally and has a good amount of self discipline in many areas of their life but for some reason could not kick their addiction to lucozade!
I said I’d try and we spent just over half an hour working through the EFT tapping system for this.
The result has astounded both me and my client!!
They no longer want a lucozade, the thought actually repulses them and in fact have reported that they are not interested in touching any fizzy drinks at all right now either... they just 'don’t fancy it'.
This is obviously going to be of a huge benefit to their health and also puts them back in control, this is no longer an addiction, if they were to drink a lucozade or fizzy drink they would not be ill from that alone but they are now completely in the driving seat. Their old addiction or carving for it is no longer so overwhelming they feel powerles to it. Horray!
I’m so proud of this breakthrough, I wanted to share it with you, as I’m sure there're many people out there that have a 'vice' they just don't feel they can overcome, and maybe EFT is the answer for you.
I would say however it is important to actually want to overcome it, many people say they do but deep down if they are honest with themselves actually don’t at all.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
Wishing you health and happiness,

I’ve been helping my clients on a one to one basis learn how to cultivate happiness in their lives, feel at peace with themselves, and experience health and vitality for many years and now, having worked in the health and wellness industry for 4-5 year. I am fascinated in psychology and have gained experience over the years by working with clients with various emotional issues and helping them regain balance, healing and health within my own holistic therapies business.
The reason i'm writing this post is to tell you all about the 6 week Reiki Rebalance course I have designed.
The course includes 6 sessions of Reiki and a combination of therapies such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) EFT (emotional freedom technique) life coaching, counselling and naturopathy, (all of which i am qualified in and insured for) and a workbook written by me, to take you through the course, with tasks to complete outside of the sessions.
We have an initial assessment and chat before the course begins that doesn't take away from the 6 weeks.
The beauty of this course and why I'm so proud of it and how it's helped people, is because its completely individualised, the Reiki and the workbook are the only constants, they rest of the therapies depend on the client and where they are and how they need them. The idea of the course is to help the client feel more balanced, in control of their life and emotions and help them gain a greater connection to themselves . There comes a point where everyone feels a bit out of wack or lost and everybody has their own reasons for this and are at differing levels that's why it has to be individual to your needs, it is also completely confidential, due to the often sensitive nature of the issues bought forward.
The 6 sessions can start at any point and although Ideally we would do them weekly, if they happen to be away for a week or so it's not a problem they are timed to suit the client. My website has all the information too along with testimonials from some people that have completed the course, the course so far has a 100% success rate for helping people re balance and feel happier and it also gives you practical tools to further help yourself. www.gemmahaupt.co.uk
I am passionate about helping people work trough their emotional and mental barriers, to promote health and happiness in both the mind and body. My holistic approach to mind and body stems from a background working as a personal trainer and nutritional advisor. Health and wellbeing are so important to me and I believe a balanced mind and emotions are paramount to feeling vital and in control of ones life and choices.

“Intuition is a sense of knowing how to act spontaneously, without needing to know why.” - Sylvia Clare,
Intuition comes in several forms:
- a sudden flash of insight, visual or auditory
- a predictive dream
- a spinal shiver of recognition as something is occurring or told to you
- a sense of knowing something already
- a sense of deja vu
- a snapshot image of a future scene or event
- knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind”
So, you're faced with a difficult decision, and suddenly you feel the right answer in your gut, you don’t know why you have that feeling but it’s most defiantly there, but how can it be logical to follow intuition when it seems arise from some mysterious inner source? Although intuition may be spiritually guided there is also a scientific reason for it to be taken seriously and nurtured, it is there for a reason, it is actually a form of unconscious reasoning—one that's rooted in the way our brains collect and store information.
As you accumulate knowledge—whether it's about what books your spouse likes or how to play chess—you begin to recognise patterns. Your brain unconsciously organises these patterns into blocks of information—a process the late social scientist Herbert Simon, PhD, called chunking. Over time your brain chunks and links more and more patterns, then stores these clusters of knowledge in your long-term memory. When you see a tiny detail of a familiar design, you instantly recognize the larger composition—and that's what we regard as a flash of intuition.
This elaborate brain circuitry likely evolved so our forebears could size up a person or a situation quickly. Our female ancestors, in particular, needed this skill: They had to tune in to their infants to enable them to survive. And this helps explain why women today have an edge when it comes to reading people.
Intuition often shows up as a fleeting in sight we'll probably dismiss as coincidence — or write off as “just imagination.” But as Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
Experts in intuitive counselling say you can learn to develop your intuition and capture those insights to help you make decisions in your personal life — such as whether to agree to a blind date.
“Everyone has intuition. The more you acknowledge it, the stronger and more accurate it gets,” says professional spiritual and medical intuitive Marla Mitchell.
Professional intuitive’s use intuition to perceive information about you and provide guidance. A medical intuitive further specializes in perceiving the physical health of the body and internal systems. A surprising number of business leaders also use intuition to help them make business decisions. In a poll conducted by PRWeek and Burson-Marsteller, the majority of the 252 CEOs surveyed said they were likely to rely on their intuition when making business decisions.
It’s something to consider next time you’re debating whether to sign off on a new ad campaign or hire a candidate who sent a bland resume but knocked your socks off in the interview.
“I’ve come to accept that my own intuition is one of many skills I can call upon in my business when needed,” says Christen Resmo, president and CEO of Benchmark Coaching, a Denver-based career coaching firm.
Ways to strengthen your intuition
“With practice, you start noticing the quiet voice within,” explains David Stevens, professional intuitive and founder of Yoga of the Mind, a meditation and intuition training service. “Some see flashes of pictures. Others have certain feelings. Some just have a pure knowingness.”
Meditation helps you to get quiet and be in the present moment. The key to increasing your intuitive awareness is to stay very present. Intuition lives in the present.
At the heart of any meditation method is the practice of quieting the mind, which can help you increase your awareness of your intuitive sense.
Meditation creates the best access to intuition. You can learn meditation skills in a class or with a meditation instruction DVD or CD. Meditating for just 15 minutes a day can offer many benefits. Some people find that rather than still mediating they find walking, running or Yoga exercise a more beneficial way of meditating. Its an individual process and you should never feel you have to meditate in a certain way.
2) Do a blind reading
Stevens recommends practicing what he calls “blind readings.” Here’s how they work:
1. Sit down at a writing table with three blank index cards.
2. Think about a decision you are currently grappling with and write three solutions for it, one on each card.
3. Turn the cards blank-side-up, shuffle them and place them face-down on a table.
4. Run your hands over the cards and notice the feeling of each card.
5. Assign a percentage to each card based on how powerfully you’re drawn to it.
6. Turn the cards over and take note of the answer with the highest percentage.
Two years ago, Stevens and his wife used a blind reading to help them decide whether to cancel a big trip they had planned. The vacation was to begin right around the time a work-related project of his wife’s was to be completed. But the project started late, and it looked like the project would reach a critical point during their vacation.
Rather than canceling the vacation, the couple did a blind reading. They labeled the first card “Shorten the trip,” the second card “Do the trip as planned,” and the third card “Cancel the trip.” They each did a separate blind reading; both felt the strongest pull toward the card labelled “Do the trip as planned.”
They kept their vacation plans. As it turned out, the critical aspects of the project were completed a couple of days before the trip. Stevens and his wife enjoyed their vacation without distraction.
Reiki: Reiki help to realign you with your true self and spiritual awareness. This holistic form of rebalance aids intuition as the person receiving the reiki becomes more in tune with themselves.
Spiritual Circles and Readings : Mitchell and Stevens agree that you can develop your intuition by having readings done by professional intuitives, and by taking classes.
Resmo, Benchmark Coaching CEO, says classes that teach how to develop intuition let her practice tapping into her intuitive side in a non-judgemental environment. “I could simply allow my thoughts and impressions to flow,” she explains. "My guesses and hunches were spot-on accurate about 75 percent of the time.”
I suggest we all listen to our intuition more, instead of brushing it aside.
You do know the answers to the questions you seek, the answers lie deep inside your sub conscious mind, pay attention to your physical body, trust your emotions and ask your self why your feeling this way. Intuition means exactly what it sounds like, in-tuition!: An inner tutor or teaching and learning mechanism that takes us forward daily. It is a resource that, where recognised, has infinite potential. Open your thoughts to the probability that you are more intuitive than you realise and you can take more control over your future now.

Emotional balance is where our mind, body and spirit are all in line with each other and we are in a space where we feel at peace.
It’s an important part of our mental and physical wellbeing that all situations and life issues are resolved, or at least aired, and pay attention to the feelings that emerge from within us.
Many times our emotional balance is ignored and passed off as stress, discomfort, boredom and distraction, or worse (the norm!) and we try and fix it in ways that don’t have any kind of lasting effect. Some of those fix-it methods are eating comfort foods, shopping, sex, gambling, drinking, over working, and the list can go one, but those thing never push us to get to the core of why we just can't feel better.
Emotional balance is as important as any other health aspect, in fact more important as emotional imbalances manifest themselves in the physical body and take away from your natural feeling good energy.
Un balanced emotions accelerate our negative health issues, in fact it can actually be the cause of them. It is one of the most important aspects to the whole body balance.
When you are out of balance it creates stress and conflict in your relationships; and that is all of your relationships, which include family, employment, road rage, marital, friendships and right down to the shopping clerk. So you can see how emotional balance is as important as physical health, in fact even more so as it effects your physical health. You truly can't improve your physical health with out balancing your emotions.
A regular spiritual practice can greatly assist in centering you and maintaining clarity about those aspects of your life, which are truly important. Regaining control of your own emotions and creating a higher perspective, from where you are able to make better decisions.
This can be any kind of spiritual practice including yoga, meditation, reiki, prayer, EFT.
Creating an environment that is de-cluttered and calm can aid tranquillity and organisation of the mind, it creates a calm soothing energy in your space.
If you feel your emotional balance is off, improving your diet is one positive step you can take, your mind, body and spirit can work much closer together if your food intake is in balance, that means eliminating items such as caffeine, sugar, processed foods, soda, alcohol, cigarettes and eating whole, naturally occurring foods.
Work on creating a positive outlook and attitude on life, always look for the good in everything and start being grateful, especially when you feel there isn't anything to be grateful for; you can always find something. When you’re noticing things to be grateful for its harder to feel down, the more you practice, the easier this will become. When you do this it shifts your energy into balance. You will feel lighter, brighter and much healthier.

Im very pleased to announce that after a year of very interestin but hard study, I am now a qualified naturopath. ;-) but what is a Naturopath? ....
A Naturopath is a health practitioner who applies natural therapies. It includes approved natural healing practices such as Nutritional advice, Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine and Reflexology. At a time when modern technology, environmental pollution, poor diet, and stress play a significant role in the degradation of health, a Naturopath’s ability to apply natural methods of healing is of considerable importance. By using natural therapies they are able to treat both acute and chronic ailments successfully from the root cause rather than just the symptoms. Frequently, a Naturopath is the last resort in a patient’s long search for health. Providing personalised care to each patient, the naturopath sees humankind as a holistic unity of body, mind, and spirit. xx
