I would like to add that I’ve been blessed, wherever I’ve been, by exceptional Alexander teachers coming into my life. Here in Belfast, Don White in Holywood, knew what was wrong and how I needed to direct my energies and inhibit my body’s desire to compensate for the pain, and survive until surgery, when the National Health Service was still making diagnostic mistakes. His interventions came in month 10, just as I had given up on the NHS, invoked my private BUPA insurance, and finally gotten the correct MRI and an accurate diagnosis by a talented and innovative private consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Mr Jonathan Bunn, who knew about and deeply respected the Alexander Technique. Several times Mr Bunn has attributed my pre-operative grit and post-operative success to Alexander training, along with dance, trekking, a dynamite physiotherapist Jeff Blair (Alphaphysio), and my personal trainer Kirsty at David Lloyd’s, all here in Belfast, Nothern Ireland. But without Alexander, which my surgeon said his own mentor at Queen’s Unversity Belfast’s Medical School “found was the only thing that helped him ease and transform chronic back pain,” I might not have found the will, stamina, or faith to fight through to a diagnosis, live through a year of ever-increasing pain with life-force and energy to spare, or re-build as fast as I have done following Total Hip Replacement surgery on 30th January 2013. God bless all who’ve contributed their expertise to this miracle, and god(s) bless all who study and teach Alexander Technique throughout the world. Un otrá vece, Graçias à la Vida. And now jo quiero pregunta à un amigo to translate estas qué jo éscriban aquí en Éspañol!

I felt unable to express my thanks in the way that I would have liked at the end of the programme at xxxx.
I am writing to you now to say that the event was one of the most memorable that I have been on – its success in no small way being directly attributable to the skill, care and emotion that you invested.
I know from speaking to others around the department that there is a great sense of achievement and togetherness – some ‘magic’ that we all want to see perpetuated. This is perhaps the main concern that we all have – ‘to hold the moment’. Sincere thanks for helping us to gain this most powerful of insights – ‘simple being human is ok.’ Best wishes Tim.

Letter to BBC –
Also in terms of psychologists / counsellors to work with young people / families for your programme. May I recommend a woman called Nuala White – she is highly qualified and experienced but has two things that make her very effective with solutions for teens. One is that she knows about and understands the possible disability side of things (so many young people having difficulities have undiagnosed disabilities) and two, she has a fantastic new tool (more common in suicide prevention in USA) that is proven to work and does not require teens (or parents) to talk a lot to cope, let go and manage. Its called Faster EFT and she is a trainedpractitioner. We recently won funding to work with her to make a You Tube video to make the skill accessible to teens. (Feb / Mar) Its like acupuncture, but for emotions – and it just involves tapping with a finger on certain points to release and let go. It may sound a bit strange – but I know that it works and its perfect for teens who so often have not got the skills, to talk /communicate when they are angry or down. They can take ownership of a solution. Nuala has a broad range of skills and is a brilliant counsellor also. She could help make a big positive impact – the skill is easy to learn and you dont have to believe in the ‘how it works’ for it to work.

We know from experience that many families / young people need quicker fixes and things they can use themselves when there is no professional available / long waiting lists, / teens who wont attend, to them and will work no matter what the issue – thankfully now this has developed in NI and we are working to make it available to teens.

I have cc’ed Nuala into this so you can get in touch with her if you wish.

Regards

I was sceptical at first, but I desperately wanted help with quitting smoking.
So I gave it a try, and amazingly after just the one session I was free of my cravings!
I was also taught how to deal with resurgence of cravings, so now, when I feel stressed, I no longer have to resort to smoking, it’s perfect

I am non-smoker, thank you Nuala,

I really appreciated you took the time to let me experience the tapping work you do.

The tapping experience for me has made me believe more in myself. I have gained confidence and been able to see that there are some things that no matter how hard I work will not turn out the way I intended. During the experience I did feel a massive amount of release and although I felt very emotional, it was a positive experience for me. I’m unsure why I felt so emotional at that time. For a while afterwards when I was worried or feeling stressed I would tap myself and repeat the encouraging statements you had me repeating during the experience. This helped me cope with the stress I was experiencing at the time.

I feel much more confident in my role and although I’m still learning every day I’m not hiding behind the “ I’m just new to this role”. I feel after this experience I turned a corner, a bright new corner, where I believed in myself and that, in fact, I have the ability to carry out his role effectively. I am able to speak out more in large groups, although this still needs a bit of work!! (Childrens Home Manager a 20 minute session.)

Before coming to see Nuala White about fastereft, I felt miserable about my general health and well-being. Every day I worried about my health from every lump and bump that I had on my body, all I could think of was that is was something sinister eg cancer. It got me down so much that it took over my life and all of my thinking. Since having the fastereft tapping session with Nuala, she did only what I can describe as some sort of miracle. The tapping made me realise what I was really feeling deep down inside and that I had forgotten all the great amazing things in my life. During the session the things she made me see were past things in my life like my dog and other things I currently had, which made me laugh and smile and forget about the worries and pain I previously experienced. From having a previous cancer scare i had to undergo an operation to remove cells and I was fine afterwards. This gave me a fright and I worried constantly about it since. The fastereft tapping session helped me immensely and now I rarely think the worst and I don’t feel bad about my health any longer.
