In this episode, I speak to Nick Jellie who is a mentor and EFT practitioner for highly sensitive people experiencing social anxiety. Nick explains the theory behind the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise known as tapping, and how it can be used to combat anxiety for Highly Sensitive People. We talk about the importance of approaching our healing from a holistic perspective and how specific emotions and trauma are stored energetically within the physical body. EFT works to release these energetical blockages through tapping on meridians and draws on various theories of alternative and energy medicine.
EFT Anxiety and the Highly Sensitive Person
Nick Jellie is a mentor and EFT practitioner for highly sensitive people experiencing social anxiety. He holds an honours degree in psychology and is studying towards registration as a certified practitioner with EFT International. Nick experienced his own struggles with social anxiety for almost 10 years trying unsuccessfully to overcome his anxiety using a number of different methods. He is an accomplished meditation practitioner and has also learned from spiritual teachers such as Sadhguru, Eckhart Tolle, and others on his journey to inner freedom and recovery. He now teaches others how to overcome past experiences of shame and guilt, and retrain their nervous system to experience greater ease and confidence in social situations.
