Bothersome Memories and PTSD

‘When you come to a place of complete acceptance of what is and what has been, that is the beginning of the joy in your life’.

Bothersome Memories

Imagine achieving a sense of lightness, freedom, acceptance.

It is possible with Emotional Freedom Techniques.

What is or are the things in your life that you would rather not have had happened?

That sneak up on you and fill you with an upset?

That you try to ignore and pretend didn’t happen?

That keep you awake at night?

That send you to the cupboard for food or drink or to your screen to escape? 

Bothersome memories can be big or small, something you have done or caused, or something that has been done to you, something you have witnessed or heard about.  Natural disasters, acts of violence or even an inference of misconduct that remains unsettled.

Maybe you can’t remember, yet you wonder if something did happen?

Sometimes a smell or taste, sound, or vision, can trigger a feeling or a memory.

Emotional Freedom Techniques and Matrix Reimprinting are gentle client paced techniques that take the ‘energy’ out of bothersome memories so that they no longer bother you. Often profound learnings come as a result of working on or about these memories.

There is much scientific data showing the efficacy of EFT especially with PTSD in war vets. 

EFT also works with smaller, more ‘at home’ memories.
