Gemma White

Gemma White is an EFT practitioner, holistic counsellor, and art therapist. Sheconnects to her version of spirituality through creativity –writing poetry, making art, and creating music. All these art forms continue to heal her from the inside out, and she

brings a sense of creative possibility to her sessions with clients. Gemma has experienced first-hand the gentle power of art

therapy and holistic counselling to heal her relationships. They are such subtle methods for self-reflection, yet they go deep

into the subconscious, effecting real change. More recently Gemma has explored the powerful tool of EFT tapping for removing

emotional blocks, becoming qualified as a practitioner. Being a creative person and having a tool like EFT tapping naturally lends itself to helping other creatives with issues such as writer’s block or resistance to writing, an actor being nervous about an

audition, or a speaker feeling jittery about being on stage.


EFT tapping can be used for many different things like weight loss and food cravings, quitting smoking, relationship difficulties, or even physical pain. If you’re having a feeling about an issue, no matter what it is, then it’s likely there’s a stuck emotion behind

it that would benefit from EFT tapping. Emotional Freedom Technique – EFT tapping – literally gives you more emotional freedom.
