What makes our service different?

What makes FAST unique is that, unlike traditional counselling or behavioural therapy -based services, our sessions are centred around Emotional Freedom Technique. More specifically evidence-based EFT.  

EFT, which is better known as 'tapping therapy', has gained steadily increasing popularity over recent years - and for good reason!

At its core, EFT is a powerful, self-help tool.  It allows the rapid dialling- down of anxiety, fear, anger and stress - all common and, often, debilitating experiences in ongoing high stress situations. 

It combines the traditional elements of talking-based therapies with the crucial body-based element of tapping lightly on the skin. This element is unique to EFT.

This powerful combination sends calming signals to the amygdala - the brain's fight or flight centre - signalling that it can stand down. 

Once the basic tapping points have been learned, EFT can be used at any time it's needed. 

When offered in a session with a trained practitioner, EFT combines the benefits of traditional therapeutic approaches with the rapid emotional reprocessing benefits specific to EFT.  

The thing that people often find most surprising about EFT is how quickly it can work. It's not unusual to see a significant improvement in emotional and psychological issues - often in just one or two sessions. 

Once considered a fringe therapy, there is now an impressive amount of scientific research which clearly shows that EFT is a fast, safe and effective way to treat stress, anxiety, trauma and even PTSD. 

Evidence-based Emotional Freedom Technique is:

  • Fast, safe and effective
  • Evidence-based
  • Useful in both short term and chronic stress and trauma situations

  • A brilliant self-help technique that you can draw on even outside of sessions

Emotional Freedom Technique can help with:

  • Feelings of exhaustion and overwhelm
  • Sleep problems
  • Stress, anxiety & panic
  • Feelings of anger
  • Feelings of isolation and detachment
  • Coping with new and fast-moving high-stress situations
  • Managing acute, traumatic stress reactions

What is FAST?

FAST stands for Frontline Assistance for Stress & Trauma.

It was set up by experienced Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner Wendy Stoten in response to the significant number of professionals impacted by Covid-19.

Their early results working with healthcare and emergency workers were so positive they decided to make the EFT sessions as widely available as possible. 

 FAST is the result and they now have a team of 40 skilled and trauma experienced EFT professionals registered with them. 

After a regional pilot study, FAST has now opened up online EFT sessions to all UK healthcare and emergency workers impacted by Covid-19

Whether you're working in a Covid hotspot or you're dealing with other stress resulting from Covid-19, FAST is here to help.
