Faye Brennan


EFT & Psychotherapy

Faye is a person-centred experiential (PCE) therapist whom also incorporates EFT tapping (emotional freedom techniques) into sessions. The two therapeutic techniques work in harmony with one another and are used together with great success.
Having a foundation in PCE therapy ensures that Faye is able to empathically attune to a clients’ distress, hold that space for them and guide them through with much care and compassion. 
EFT comes under the umbrella of energy psychology with tapping on acupoints positioned on the body’s meridian system which releases stuck energy and/or emotional distress. 

Faye has used EFT on issues such as; limiting beliefs, anxiety, depression, peak performance, childhood trauma, bereavement, PTSD, shame, guilt, addiction with great success in her own private practice.
