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.)

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!

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.

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.

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.
