From 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces current EU legislation covering the protection of personal data. In the UK it also replaces the Data Protection Act 1998.

We’ve given a brief outline for you to make it simpler but there is still ambuigity. Please feel free to contact us if you have any additional comments to add. The EFT Register will issue further guidance when more information becomes known. (more…)
The purpose of Guilt is an emotion that lets us know when we’ve done something wrong. It’s an emotional warning sign that most people learn through their normal childhood social development, that helps us develop a better sense of our behaviour and to understand how it affects ourselves and others.

What has neuroplasticity got to do with EFT?
The ability of neural networks to repair themselves became dramatically evident in research published in the 1990s. Stroke victims, for instance, who have lost access to parts of their brains, may be able to regain all or part of their lost functionality.
Their neural networks rewire around the parts of the brain damaged in the stroke, sometimes restoring full function.
Skin reflects the mind and the mind reflects the skin. Psychodermatology is an emerging subspeciality of dermatology and is the study and practice of the relation between skin disorders and psychological aspects. The British Association of Dermatologists, together with psychiatrists and psychologists have formed a group aimed at raising awareness on the psychosocial impact of skin disease and to promote multi-disciplinary management. In the USA, The Association for Psychoneurocutaneous Medicine of North America is an organization made up of dermatologists, psychiatrists, psychologists and allied health professionals dedicated to the study of the skin and mind connection.
