After another short break, we repeated the process (image 6) but Client A said something wasn’t right so drew another picture (image 7). Whilst he was drawing, Client A said, ‘It’s OK, I don’t have to eat it, the yoghurt’s in the fridge.’ As before, I was tapping on him, repeating his words and offering reassurance.
After he’d finished drawing his final picture, we continued to tap on his happy picture and talk about the things he liked and that made him happy – superman, jazz music – before rounding off the session with 7/11 breathing.
This was an intense 2-hour session but the results were incredible – just look at the difference between images 3 and 7. In the short video below, you can hear Client A talk about the transformation in himself.
As a therapist, my approach is always client-centric and the different techniques I use are based on my assessment of individual client needs and situations. I offer a totally bespoke service, taking the time to listen to and understand my clients – I don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’.
If you need support with phobias or challenging behaviour, please book a call so we can discuss a solution that’s right for you.
