My name is Catherine Lapkovski and I'm an Advanced GS-EFT Practitioner.
I'm a passionate collector of all available knowledge on the mind-body connection, the connection between our inner and outer world and healthy ways of thinking and living in general.
I've overcome quite a few challenges in my life, from losing people closest to my heart, to health challenges; from playing a role of a mother, who's devoted most of her time to her family and children, to experiencing the feeling of emptiness and anxiety, when children grow up and priorities change. I know what it feels like to suddenly feel anxious and get panic attacks »out of the blue, for no apparent reason«. And I know how it is to feel fear and self-doubt, when you wish to or need to change profession.
But I also know that it is possible to overcome anxiety and panic attacks, it is possible to live a happy life, despite painful past experiences, at ease with your past. And I know it is possible to find a new meaning of life and to feel worthy, powerful and joyful at any given age.
Since my teen years I've been interested in what makes someone happy or unhappy. How our thoughts and beliefs influence the life we create. I've always been a fan of books on personal development and healthy life style. Although I did often find the possible reasons for my problems, t.i. the answers to the question »why« (why has it come to this), I was usually left not knowing what to do with that knowledge. I rarely found the answer to the question »how« (how can I change it).
The one thing that really transformed my life and answered the question »how« for me, was EFT. EFT helped me release those unpleasant negative emotions (anxiety, fear, sadness, resentment, jealousy) and transform not only on the conscious level, but on the subconscious and energetic level as well.
For me EFT was the missing piece between understanding, accepting and managing our emotions and responses and changing them without the need for will-power and control. And this is what makes it possible for us to create the life we want.
I've acquired an EFT Level 3 Practitioner Certificate with EFT International (former AAMET) in 2012 and later decided to further improve my EFT practice. I received extensive training in Gold Standard EFT with Tina Craig through the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) and am, as of December 2017, a Certified EFT Practitioner.
