It is a simple yet powerful way to rid yourself of unseen emotional baggage and alleviate physical symptoms. Sue, UKGHE member and a graduate of Wilf Proudfoot’s courses, will demonstrate this technique, explain how she incorporates it into a typical session and how it fits in with hypnotherapy, EFT and NLP.
