About Deirdre

Final website

I am a qualified FasterEFT practitioner and Reflexologist.  I help people to let go of stress in their lives so that they can be healthier and happier.

My journey along the healing pathways began in the late 1970s when I first experienced hands on healing. It was also the first time that I was instructed on how to give this type of healing.

I have formalised my healing activities since then, with a Diploma of Reflexology, a Diploma of Facial Reflexology, a Diploma of Japanese Cosmo (face lifting), FasterEFT Advanced Practitioner Level IV,  AAMET International Level 111 Practitioner, NLP Certification and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.  In addition I have attended and participated in, many workshops/seminars and conferences for different therapies and modalities. I have also given many public presentations on my work. The work that I now do is, therefore, the result of years of theory and practical application for Reflexology and other healing modalities. I work from a home-based clinic in Canberra which is convenient and which offers me flexibility.

I am passionate about my healing activities and my aim is to empower people to achieve good health and happiness. I work with each client according to their specific needs and ages. I also encourage my clients to understand, and to be active in the healing work that I do with them. Where appropriate, I teach them techniques to use by themselves.

The mind/body connection is recognised as being crucial in healing modalities today.  I have found that I can address this for the benefit of my clients through a combination of physical work with reflexology and the emotional work with EFT  (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and FasterEFT  (Emotionally Focused Transformations). I support these with other energy therapies including Pranic Healing, Reiki, Theta Healing and Bush Flower Essences. Over the years my clients have responded positively after I have worked with them for many conditions either physical and/or mental. These include acute physical conditions such as muscular/skeletal pain, asthma and emotional states such as post natal depression, depression,  post traumatic stress disorder, grief, loss, trauma, relationship issues, feeling stuck and overwhelmed.
