At the beginning of Lockdown, I felt a deep imperative to gift an offering to my community which was both easily accessible and of immediate benefit.
The thing which felt accessible for anyone with an internet connection was EFT/Tapping. It’s free to do, easy to follow along to and deeply affecting and immediately effective right away. I kept it as a free offering for 13 weeks and it was so much fun. I have loved the feeling each week that there would be a group of people coming together to Tap with me.
I still offer the first session for free so that anyone can join in and try it out.
Catching the Tapping bug is a fortnightly group EFT/Tapping session. Each week an agreed group theme is addressed using the body’s innate energy system accessed by Tapping gently on different parts of the body in a routine.
Fortnightly Thursdays at 8.30-9.15pm
September 10th & 24th. October 8th & 22nd. November 5th & 19th. December 3rd & 17th. Then there’ll be a Winter break.
Online via Zoom – email me for the details: HertsHerbalist@hotmail.com
Anyone who wants to try out Tapping is welcome.
It is beneficial for anyone who is interested in feeling calmer, a sense of deep relaxation and looking for a self-care technique.
Anyone who wants to tap in a group and benefit from the sharing of an experience.
There are some people who have attended every session and some who come occasionally. There is generally more benefit felt from regular practice of any self-care routine but benefits are still gained in ad hoc sessions.
I hold space for 10 people as that retains the intimacy and allows a sense of rapport amongst the group.
£10 per session. Payment is by PayPal: www.paypal.me/Herbalist/10
The first session you attend is completely free so that you can get to see whether you like Tapping and can feel how the energy moves in your body from tapping on the points. EMAIL ME: HertsHerbalist@hotmail.com to let me know you’re attending and I’ll mail you back the details.
No previous experience needed. I teach the ‘moves’ and demonstrate throughout the session and the group repeats the words I say or the words they prefer to use (on mute!).
What do I actually do?
I use the ‘basic recipe’ of EFT with the addition of the third eye point. Here is EFT founder Gary Craig demonstrating the basic recipe in an 8 minute YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wG2FA4vfLQ It’s a really quick way to understand how simple the process can be.

What subject do we tap on?
Each week has had a different theme but so far, it has often related to Lockdown emotions – eg fear, anxiety, ‘new normal’.
Other subjects have been: our physical manfestations of emotional pains, grief, releasing old patterns, Lockdown eating and many more.
What does it do to me?!
Most people report feeling lighter and calmer at the end of the sessions. I have also received feedback that sleep has improved and that the positive effects have continued for a few days afterwards.
What else happens?
I ask each person to contribute a little about their experience so I can make sure everyone is feeling good at the end of the session.
Safe & Secure
It’s vital that we all feel safe and secure and confidentiality is key to the success of these sessions. Please respect everyone in a way you would wish to be respected yourself. Please do not have other people in the room with you, or use headphones to keep the audio private.

WHY EFT? I used to be really skeptical that something so apparently flimsy as ‘hitting yourself’ could be of benefit to any psychological issues. After working with two different professionals, doing my training and working with it myself, I have only found it to be beneficial. If nothing else, it is profoundly relaxing (and that’s something we can all do with right now) but I have been able to release unhelpful thoughts, emotional patterns and physical discomforts simply by harnessing the power of EFT/Tapping.
Here’s what Sophie O (who had various pains after a fall) put on Facebook after her first Catching the Tapping bug session:
More about me
I am a medical herbalist and EFT/Tapping practitioner based in Hemel Hempstead. I have found that many of my patients’ physical ailments are triggered or escalated by an emotional event. If the emotions of that event are still ‘in the mix’ and bothersome, then it tends to hinder the body’s ability to move forward from the physical symptoms. To address this most effectively, I use EFT/Tapping to assist in the shifting of the physical and emotional ‘stuckness’ which have become associated with the physical issue.
When working with my patients and clients, I find that combining modalities often brings about the desired changes quicker than using one treatment system alone.
