Testimonials

To get an insight into Nuala and Don’s work, you can read some testimonials from clients who have experienced a range of their services and wanted to share their story:

As a newcomer to the notion of tapping, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but it’s been a
fantastic help thus far. I was glad that the process was able to access memories/feelings to do its
job, without ever once making me feel under pressure or uncomfortable. However, whilst I know
keeping a flow is necessary, a few more occasional breaks would help, as I began to be distracted
from mental images by silly stuff like dryness of mouth and such. Another positive of the session I
would say, would be the teaching of what was being done as the session progressed, allowing the
client to practice themselves when necessary, namely the hand-tap method.
All-in-all, so far, totally successful, and very glad I participated.

What Nuala White does with exceptional precision, passion & purpose is ask the tough questions, the ones you may have been avoiding! This causes you to take a hard look at what is in front of you, how you present yourself and how effective you are at achieving what you want. Nuala White helps you consider perceived failures and use them for positive growth. For me she was able to show me how the ‘written me’ on my CV did not match the ‘written me of my writing’ or the ‘physical me’ standing in front of her. She asked me questions and gave plenty to consider than enabled and empowered me to make the necessary changes to succeed and thrive. Without doubt I not only recommend Nuala White, I HIGHLY recommend her. Her expertise and empathetic and compassionate use of her skills allowed me to open up a new world of possibilities.

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.

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!

It is the start of June now and the hay fever season for me should be well and truly over. So I can now tell you how I got on this year.

Well when I could feel my eyes getting itchy and my nose running or sneezing I used the techniques we discussed in our session. As a result the itching and sneezing soon stopped. What was also pleasing was the fact that I read this year was going to be really bad because of the cold spring and the lateness of the pollen being released and the trees would it all out all at once. However I hardly suffered at all, barely a few days and as I said before I used the techniques and the suffering went away.

Therefore I can say it has been a resounding success and this spring has been one which I have actually enjoyed and not had to suffer through.

So all I can say is a great big thank you Nuala for helping me get through this spring and many more to come.

About a year ago my activities were considerably curtailed for six months or so as a result of a “silly” fall. I am in my eighties and was told that it was probably caused by the loss of sense of balance as one gets older. I wasn’t prepared to accept such a defeatist attitude and signed up with Don White for a course of Alexander Technique instruction. It is taking many months to alter the postural habits of a lifetime but I am beginning to enjoy more control than I have ever had over my freedom of movement and comfortable balance. The teaching has also made me aware of the neatest and easiest way of carrying out all the everyday movements of life such as sitting, standing, walking or lifting. In answer to the question “What can you expect at your age?” I would say that by studying the Alexander Technique I can expect to feel wonderful, better than ever before in my life. I only wish I had had that salutory fall seventy years ago.

Ive now had 3 sessions with Nuala and I have to say that since my last session a week ago I have been walking on cloud 9. A feeling of deep peace and comfort with life. I know its beginning to wear off a little now but I now have confidence that I have the techniques at my disposal to keep that energy and not let daily and historic ‘things’ get in the way of that peace.

It was really lovely doing the work with Nuala over skype from the comfort of my own home and I loved the energy, naturalness, informality and professionalism she brings.
