About

Jessica

Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner, Master Trainer

Here to help you get back on track.

Like many of us, I never paid much attention to reducing my stress until I started to need to.

After studying and working in the environmental field for almost a decade, I was burning out. It felt like I never made a real difference. When rising stress caused my physical and emotional health to suffer, I was ready to try anything and everything.

One of the things that came my way was EFT Tapping. I was a definite skeptic and I never would have tried tapping had I not been hoodwinked into it!

I certainly never expected to be an EFT Practitioner or Trainer.

But tapping worked. And for me, if was better than anything else had, in fact.

Bit by bit, I cleared the emotional charge that was weighing me down.  Finally, things clicked.

I won't try to share my life as some sort of fairy tale, where I'm permanently zen or something. No self-help technique is going to get you there, but then again, that isn't the point, is it?

What I will say is the journey helped open new doors for me - I eventually got trained as a Practitioner and started this business. It's been incredibly meaningful to get to work with people over the years. I finally feel like I'm making the difference I wanted to make.

How I Work

These are the theories and themes that guide our work together.

Polyvagal Theory is a way of understanding some of the deepest parts of the human psyche/experience, ironically through our biology. It gives us insight into our automatic reactions - why we get anxious, fearful, overwhelmed and shut down - despite knowing better. Polyvagal Theory teaches us that the nervous system is the source of our felt sense of safety and connection with other people. And it's also the source of the anxious thinking, negative thought loops, stress in the body, and so on, when it's in fight-flight-freeze or fawn modes. Solutions that come from connection and the body will have a greater effect on the nervous system than just thinking different thoughts.

Parts work is a great way to get access to the subconscious mind and generate greater compassion for ourselves. We treat unwanted feelings, thoughts and behaviours as coming from a "Part" of us - could be an inner child or inner protector, for example. This Part of us is just trying to keep us safe, and help us avoid pain. With tapping, we can release the emotional charge held by our parts. This allows our real self to come back online, leading us from a place of wisdom, integrity and compassion.

We may wonder if we're neurotic for being so good at ruminating or seeing the glass as half-empty. The Psychological Injury model encourages us to look at all of these traits as adaptations to psychological wounds. We ruminate perhaps because it was always left up to us to fix everything - we haven't learned how to ask for help, or use better tools. We're pessimistic because things did turn out badly at one point, and we sure learned that lesson! We're not lazy, crazy, stupid or flawed. Psychological wounds change our behaviour and thinking - and we still have access to healing them and resetting the pattern.

Positive psychology teaches us it's not just about focussing on what's wrong. Just as important is to know who you are; your strengths, what matters to you, and what you really want out of life. And it empowers you to live into your potential, even before you've fixed every last thing about yourself. Think of it as an antidote to toxic positivity.

Looking for more detail on my qualifications?

I’ve studied to become an EFT Practitioner with a variety of professional EFT Trainers in both Canada and the US.

My Level 1 and 2 training was accredited by the American Psychological Association for Clinical EFT. I completed my advanced certification at the National EFT Training Institute (Canada) where I focused on trauma-informed delivery of tapping techniques. In addition, I’ve voluntarily completed 3 speciality EFT courses on working with trauma, offered by trainers in the clinical community.

My Advanced EFT Practitioner certification work involved completing supervised practice sessions, submitting case studies for professional review, completing an independent research project, documenting 50 practice sessions for mentoring, writing an exam, and receiving ample 1-to-1 mentoring.

In order to maintain good standing with EFT International, I do additional continuing education training every year, and continue to receive ongoing professional mentoring. And I love doing this!

In 2022, I completed three years of work toward becoming an accredited Master Trainer. This allows me to train and certify future EFT practitioners according to the standards set out by EFT International. You can sign up to be notified of upcoming trainings here.

In my former life, I earned a degree from the University of British Columbia. I worked for a number of years in the environmental science field, in research, NGO work, and federal and local governments.

I’ve worked with counsellors, teachers, stay-at-home parents, retirees, entrepreneurs, health care professionals, the NGO/non-profit sector, public service employees, and others from all sorts of walks of life.

I’ve provided services to the Vancouver Island Health Authority, the Canadian Armed Forces Military Family Resource Centre, and have special made special rates available for groups and organizations, including BC School Districts. (Contact me if your organization would be interested.)

I regularly receive professional mentoring, which I think I can credit with helping my clients get faster results, even while all of us are so different! I'm also enthusiastic about bringing in other approaches, and draw heavily from positive psychology, Polyvagal Theory, attachment theory and, most recently, Gretchen Ruben's work on productivity and management.

I also was a volunteer member of EFT International's Training and Accreditation Board, where I helped to update and improve the global training standards for EFT.
