Being myself allows the wholeness of my unique magnificence to draw me in those directions most beneficial to me and to all others. This is really the only thing I have to do.

Welcome, sweet soul

You know that box that you try and squish yourself into? The one with the labels: "I'm not enough of this," "I'm too much of that." Under all the self-judgement and criticism, our pent-up emotions, and the addictive stress of our modern cult-ure, there is a gem waiting to be found: your Authentic Self. My personal experience has shown me that the more I get to know and honour my Authentic Self, the more magical my life becomes. This translates into more synchronicities, greater resilience to stress and challenges, deeper connections in my relationships and increased wellness in my physical body and mind. The practice of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) was the turning point in my story and it is still how I support myself in my own journey towards authenticity. 
EFT is a tool that you can apply to the challenges and triggers that come up in everyday life. It's about empowerment. It's a process that we can use daily to regulate our nervous system, allowing us to access the more relaxed, creative and intuitive parts of ourselves. It can help us move through the world with greater ease. In the safe space held by a skilled, authentic and compassionate practitioner, it is also a way to process our deeper wounds. 
This is where my offerings as a trauma-informed, certified clinical-EFT practitioner come in. 
I feel so much gratitude and reverence when holding this EFT space for people, guiding them through the process and seeing tangible shifts in their emotions and perspectives in our sessions. I absolutely LOVE working with limiting beliefs, fears, relationships and areas in which one may feel stuck, constricted and not in connection with their true power. In this unique time of the balancing of feminine and masculine energies on our planet and in our bodies, I am especially called to hold space for women. Women who want to claim their birthright as powerful and intuitive beings who shape their own paths instead of following the one laid before them by others. 
I have worked with clients on many areas of life including fears, cravings, body-image and self-love challenges, self-care practices, relationship conflicts, and their goals. All while putting in the good work with myself; addressing my own triggers and challenges using EFT and my personal practices. Authenticity in all things: I won't just talk about the work and not do it. I am living the experience of EFT in my life and I am always learning. It's a tool I am truly ecstatic and honoured to share with you.
In a world that devalues authenticity in innumerable ways, it's time to reclaim our birthright to be our truest Self.
Thank you for being here,
Ioana

Eft is A tool

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques' a.k.a. 'tapping') uses a combination of gentle tapping on acupressure points on the upper body, while voicing the emotions and thoughts we wish to release, and mindfully accepting the present moment. Tapping on these acupressure points produces a rapid physiological response in the body, calming the nervous system and releasing stress. In this way, EFT is an elegant nod to acupuncture while implementing principles of exposure and cognitive behavioural therapies. It is a somatic tool that speaks to the mind, through the body. This is where its power lies: in the acknowledgment that we hold onto the energies of emotions and trauma in our physical vessels.
Our bodies remember. Integrating the body into emotional processing is an essential part of healing.
Clinical research on EFT has shown benefits across a wide range of challenges such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, cravings, and phobias. If you would like to read more of the current clinical understanding of EFT, click the button below.

You are already whole... 

so, I am not here to fix you. I am here to be in open-hearted service.
My name is Ioana and it is a joy to be here! I am currently practicing as a trauma-informed EFT practitioner in Sydney, Australia. I offer my services online for ease of access.
My offering to you is this: to create and hold intentional, non-judgmental space, to be authentic and attentive, to be gentle and safe in the application of EFT.
I have learned that guiding an EFT session is a bit of an art form. It takes balancing gentleness with effectiveness, cleverness with surrender, and compassion with humour. It requires intuitively tailoring approaches to the human being sharing space with you, and trusting the process to unfold uniquely, each and every time.
If you resonate with this offering, please use the buttons below for more details and to meet me for a complimentary 20-minute exchange to discover if we are meant to share this EFT journey together.

Using it wisely

As with other healing modalities, EFT makes no promise of cure.  In an EFT session we do not work to fix any type of diagnosis; rather we work on the emotions and stress that may be caused by and/or contributing to your situation. It cannot change your circumstances, but it may  change how you perceive and experience them.  This is true empowerment, for when you find strength from within, it becomes easier to ride the waves of life.  EFT is a tool and a process that requires commitment, respect, gentleness and awareness. It is a tool that you can implement daily to calm your nervous system. With safe and gentle guidance from a certified practitioner, it may also be a powerful process of transformation, helping you to  cultivate a deeper connection to your Self.

Testimonials

I am here for yoU

Jerre, NSW
Ioana is an intuitive, effective practitioner who beautifully holds space for this transformation. I felt comfortable and safe at all times when working with Ioana and gained so much from our sessions together.
Meg, NSW
I loved learning EFT and moving through some of those challenges. I felt really safe in your presence even when feeling confronted by limiting beliefs and bringing awareness to challenging emotions. I found your relaxed approach non-judgemental especially when I could hear how ridiculous I sounded, and the wisdom you brought when I felt silly was very validating. 
Jon, NSW
My EFT sessions with Ioana were a very positive experience. I felt comfortable in the sessions and was able to experience my emotions and explore them with Ioana’s unique soft and natural approach. Ioana is a joy to work with and now one of my fears is just funny to me!
