Hello and a very warm welcome to Sole n Soul. My name is Melanie and I am an ITEC qualified Reflexologist (Distinction Grade) and an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner offering treatments either here face to face or for EFT sessions can be done online.

I am also a member of the Complementary Therapists Association, EFT International and I am also on the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council.  All of these organisations have guidelines to follow and one of their requirements is that I have regular refresher training, this ensures you are always in safe hands.

I also received training within The MacMillian Cancer Centre, this is based within the Southampton General Hospital.

MacMillan offer cancer patients various complementary therapies throughout their treatment and I was delighted to be on their team of therapists.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping as it has become known as more recently, is a mind and body therapy.  EFT works upon accupressure points within the body.  These accupressure points are along the meridian lines within the body and EFT works by releasing energy that may be blocked there.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we may have formed these include; uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. When we ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that may be holding us back.

During a session I help a client “tap into” their unique subjective experience of a presenting challenge (or troubling issue/s) for the purpose of gaining clarity and resolution. This supports the client in making changes (emotional and/or physical), shifting limited thought processes, resolving past traumas, opening to beneficial ways to move forward and more.

There is now a large amount of science and research that has been published on EFT please see here:

'My experience has been life changing with Melanie. I started my therapy sessions for depression and trauma. She helped me to heal myself by addressing fears and accepting my emotions with EFT techniques. Still healing journey is long but I have gained confident in myself back and happy to restart life.' I can't explain in words how much transformation I've gone through with her sessions. She is amazing Soul and I can't thank Melanie enough for everything she has done for and with me during all her sessions. Every session was new and different emotional journey for me. I would highly recommend her to begin your healing journey.

I saw Melanie to help with a problem I had in leaving the house, or more specifically, going out the front door. I was a bit skeptical but open to whatever Melanie suggested and found her approach reassuring and non judgemental. Melanie explained the background to EFT and how the session would go. Halfway through the session, Melanie checked in on how I felt about certain things. I actually felt a bit different which I found amusing so we carried on to complete the session. Afterwards I had a completely different perspective around my problem. I felt more confident and put into practice the techniques Melanie showed me. I am pleased to say that I do not have any of the previous feelings around leaving the house, and was completely amazed that after just one session, the result was transformational.
I was a bit sceptical about doing something out of my comfort zone but as soon as I met Mel on Zoom she instantly put me at ease. I really enjoyed doing the tapping and have started to put it into practice, Mels a great teacher and it has helped me, Thank you Mel
I was surprised how quickly I could feel the results of EFT. A little adjusting to what words suited me so I could continue to practice by myself. The process was simple and effective.
EFT was a really new experience for me and I didn't know what to expect but was pleasently suprised as Mel made it really easy to follow. Mel has a nice calming way with words in a comforting manner. Now when I look back on my traumatic experience I feel no emotions and have been able to process whats happened.

I have had two sessions of EFT with Mel and I enjoyed the outcomes of both of these. Mel introduced me to the EFT session so that I understood how it could help with issues I had in mind. She also helped me by explaining the process and what to expect. EFT is a process where we tap on certain parts of our body which sends direct signals to our subconscious minds, and Mel led me through this process and helped me reinforce my thinking in overcoming issues which had been challenging me. I felt some changes through the process and also felt some good positive changes during and after the EFT sessions. I feel that EFT does work, it has for me and I have felt more in control of the challenging situations I wanted to resolve.
