Suzi Garrod Registered MBACP, Counsellor, Supervisor, Life Coach, Trainer
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, working in both private practice and the voluntary sector. As an experienced Counsellor and Advanced EFT practitioner, I follow an integrative therapeutic approach, drawing on:
- Person-Centred Counselling
- EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
- Mindfulness-based CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
- Mindfulness Meditation
- Grief and Bereavement Counselling
- Life Coaching
I offer a professional, confidential and relaxed therapeutic environment; a safe space where you can explore your issues in confidence at your own pace, without being judged or directed; a space where you can discover more about yourself and your difficulties, gain insights, make connections, tap into your intuition and find solutions.
My practice is set in a peaceful and private setting just outside Kingsbridge, Devon. There is ample on-site parking available and disabled access can be arranged.
In accordance with BACP requirements, I am fully insured and receive regular clinical supervision. I also have a current clear DBS check.
What is EFT?
Also known as Tapping, EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. It offers a quick and effective method of releasing emotional blockages, limiting beliefs or psychological stress.
EFT is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of Energy Psychology, drawing on the theories behind the Chinese meridians in acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and energy medicine.
Whenever we experience a traumatic event it triggers negative emotion and creates an imbalance in our body’s energy system. Over time this can lead to emotional challenges such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks or phobias. It can also lead to physical symptoms such as backache, headaches, Chronic Fatigue/ME, weight gain and much more.
EFT works to clear negative emotion by focusing on a specific problem or traumatic event, whilst tapping with the fingertips on a series of points around the body that correspond to the energy meridians used in Chinese Acupuncture or Acupressure.
The combination of sending kinetic energy to our energy system, whilst uncovering and focusing on root causes, facilitates a release of the negative emotion.
