They are helpful for a wide range of children’s issues and provide them with their very own secret weapons to use for anything, at anytime and anywhere they need help. All the techniques provide valuable additions to any parent or teachers toolkits.

What is Tapping (EFT)?

Tapping is another word for Emotional Freedom Techniques, which is the fastest growing self help technique in the world. It is a simple tapping technique that is used widely as both a self-help tool and therapeutic treatment option to help reduce and often totally eliminate emotional and physical discomfort. It has provided emotional freedom to millions of people and it can do the same for you and your children too. It is an easy-to-learn acupressure technique that releases stress, sadness, anger, and other emotional blocks.

How it works

It involves tapping on certain meridian points and works on the basis that the body’s energy system is disrupted by negative emotions. There are a few harmless procedures that involve tapping on various points of your body, whilst you process any emotional memories; that are concerning you. By simply tapping and focusing in on the issue you have whether that is anxiety, stress or even physical pain, you realign your body’s energy and the problem then disappears.

Tapping doesn’t require any equipment, medication, or specific location, you and your children can tap anywhere to clear any frustration. It’s a simple technique they can do on their own, that will support you and your children for years to come.

How Tapping Can Calm Your Child

Together we can do something very special for our children. When I say our children I don’t just mean those who grow up in our individual households and carry around our last names. I mean the children of the world – everyone’s children. I’m talking about the little folks of today who become the big folks of tomorrow and influence the direction of this planet

”Gary - ”Founder

When you teach your child tapping, you teach them that they have power to take responsibility for their emotions and do something about them. It instantly calms your child. I talk more about this on our video, we discuss how to teach tapping to children, a technique to instantly calm your child, and provide useful tips for parents, who are a little hesitant and are not sure where to start. – click here to watch in full.

What is Matrix Reimprinting?

As with Acupuncture, Matrix Reimprinting uses the Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian systems which have been used for centuries. Matrix Reimprinting was created by Karl Dawson and is used to dramatically improve your health and wellbeing. It is an extremely effective extension of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), which has proven it to deliver outstanding results with both emotional and physical issues. It enables you to go back into your past, to change the emotional resonance of a memory and the beliefs you have about yourself and the world. It is particularly effective when dealing with traumas from the past, as it can be used with any event that you experienced as negative or painful.

How It Works

With Matrix Reimprinting, you are able to revisit heal and change a trauma held in the subconscious mind. By no means does this that memories are erased, as the original event will still be held in the subconscious field. What it does mean however, is that the trauma and emotions held in the subconscious memory are discharged, resulting in a cognitive shift in the brain. Some clients in fact also find this discharge releases short term injury or pain held by the body.

After using Matrix Reimprinting on a formative or traumatic memory, instead of hanging on to any negative feelings(consciously or subconsciously) about this aspect of your past, you can learn to feel strong and empowered to embrace opportunities and find effective solutions to any challenges you face.

Whatever the issue the child is suffering from, Matrix reimprinting can bring phenomenal results, whereby the issue or trauma no longer affects them. Allowing the child to be the person they deserve to be despite their experiences.

What is PTT?

Better known as the Picture Tapping Technique is a recent twist on conventional or traditional EFT. Created by Philip Davis and Christine Sutton in 2009, it involves inviting the client to draw sequential pictures about how their issues make them feel. We then use EFT (Tapping) on each picture, whilst focusing in the elements of the picture they have drawn to help clear a whole manner of issues; such as “I am not good enough”, stress and anxiety, trauma and low self esteem.

How it works

PTT uses the process of drawing pictures, to freely express your emotions whilst helping you to make sense of any situation. The great thing is that you can’t get it wrong. Even if you feel you can’t draw, just scribbling out your thoughts and feelings on paper; whilst using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to resolve the emotional connection with what you have drawn will allow you gentle and painless emotional release.

As it involves drawing, children of all ages love to use this technique, it also means that they don’t have to verbalise their issues. This can be particularly useful when we are working with any traumas, or something embarrassing and not forgetting something they feel not allowed to talk about. The pictures drawn can be extremely profound and very memorable, especially as the child moves towards resolution of the issue.

What is NLP?

NLP has been described as the art and science of communication and can be used to improve any and all areas of your life. Neuro relates to the mind and how we think. Linguistic refers to how we communicate verbally and with our body language. The Programming aspect refers to addressing our patterns of behaviour and emotions.

NLP is fast, effective and often requires little attention to the past. Understanding the way your mind operates provides you with new choices, perceptions and opportunities to overcome entrenched fear and achieve your greatest results.

How it works

The subconscious mind is very creative but it has the ability to sabotage your plans in order to keep you within your comfort zone. Your sub conscious mind is there to protect, to keep you safe and therefore is doing its job! Where the problems start is where you need to move forward and you are required to face old fears and blocks; which can feel anything but safe and secure at the deepest level.

NLP can therefore help you unlock your potential, whilst opening your mind to new options and possibilities. Providing you with the power of choice, to help you overcome problems and as a result you become more resourceful. It allows you to isolate issues and deal with them productively, so you can achieve your goals quickly and effectively.

What is Percussive Suggestion Technique (PSTEC)?

Tappy Twins, is working in partnership with the founder of PSTEC, Tim Phozackerley, to deliver PSTEC to young people of all ages.

PSTEC is a psychological intervention that is revolutionising mental healthcare the world over and is already highly praised by schools for the results achieved. It allows for the quick removal of emotional distress no matter what the cause in a manner that hasn’t been possible before now.

How It Works

It uses sound, suggestion and movement in unique a way which children find fascinating. Moreover, it delivers verifiable results quickly. It even allows problems to be worked on if a child cannot talk about it. Every aspect is designed to create the most profound beneficial and lasting change you can imagine, and much of the time to do that in minutes. This unique method Is commonly used for anger, trauma, confidence, fear and anxiety and also to quickly shift negative core beliefs. The basic PSTEC process is most easily thought of as a very fast and lasting desensitisation.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is gently maintaining moment by moment the awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and our surrounding environment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune in to what we are sensing in the present, rather than dwelling on the past; or worrying about the future. Scientific evidence supports that teaching mindfulness in the classroom, reduces behavioural problems and aggression amongst students. It also shows that it increases their happiness levels and ability to pay attention. Therefore, we support teaching and learning staff and the students in learning how to tune into their own minds and thoughts. Therefore it has a positive impact on their learning behaviours.

How it works

Mindfulness relaxes you and makes you less reactive. It helps you feel better by making the fight or flight part of the brain less reactive. Allowing you to feel a sense of freedom and increase in self awareness. You begin to have choices about how to respond to situations, rather than simply reacting to them. It teaches you to be OK with who you are without the need to change or fix aspects of ourselves.

Introduction to Mindfulness

What is Legobased Play Therapy?

This is a social.development programme helping children and young people with.diagnosis of ASD and related social communication difficulties.

Pioneered by Dr. Dan Le Goff Clinical Neuropsychologist, using the principles of play therapy, studies show “significant improvement” in communication and social interaction, competences and adaptation skills.
The programme promotes declarative language over questions and commands, supports collaborative and creative thinking and encourages verbal and non verbal communication.

How it works

The therapy guides and encourages to address and solve problems during builds so children learn better communication with others, express feelings, change behaviours, development better relationships with the world around them. 

What is the Visualisation Technique?

We also use visualisation techniques that make use of a child’s creative imagination. This can also be incorporated with EFT, Matrix Reimprinting and EmoTrance if needed. Using visualisation allows the Energy or sub conscious mind, to provide an autogenic habitat for the emotions to be cleared in, without having to necessarily rely on the ACTUAL events as a child recalls them. So once more a child can avoid revisiting the trauma, but instead deal directly with the emotional reality that is causing the stress.

What is Energy Art Therapy?

This is another powerful tool to help children. Instead of painting the bad feeling, as most art therapy leans towards, they instead ask their creative mind to give them a symbol for something positive that they would like to feel. This symbol is drawn on paper, and then coloured in any medium the child wants to use. Each step of the way we look at what colour feels correct and gradually build up a positive picture that a child associates with a positive feeling and can use any time they want that feeling as support. The symbol, and associated positive can also be coupled with EmoTrance to bring the positive energy into the body.
