I first found Rosalind in the aftermath of a missed miscarriage at 12 weeks. Although it was a planned pregnancy, it had happened very quickly and I was very apprehensive about becoming a mother and what it meant for my life, career, and marriage.
When I discovered I miscarried I was in a world of pain that I can't even describe, incredible mourning mixed with overwhelming guilt, and my experience in the hospital after was horrible and isolating. My coach at the time knew I needed more help, and the NHS would not refer me to a counsellor or therapist, so she referred me to Rosalind.
From our first Skype call, I knew Rosalind was the help I needed. The fact that she had been through the same thing I experienced was so comforting and made me feel I could say and clear what I needed to.
The Skype sessions worked really well: I could see Rosalind, so I could mimic what she was doing, and she could see me to help as well. Rosalind taught me a way to cope with my grief.
We dove straight in and focused on healing; although there is what some people consider a "new age" or traditional medicine background to tapping/EFT, Rosalind didn't harp on it, but she taught me the basics.
I loved that she taught me several ways to do the tapping: not only did I tap with her, but I tapped on my own. I ended up starting a new meditation practice that incorporated tapping, and I even used finger tapping on the bus when I began to get my business back up and running and started to go meet clients again.
We had tapping sessions consistently for a few months, and I finally started to feel a bit more normal again. Although the miscarriage experience had forever changed me.
When I got pregnant again a year later, I was much happier about it, but scared. I took Rosalind's tapping lessons with me, especially to those first scans and midwife appointments.
The tapping helped me deal with the anxiety and fear, or at least keep it in check so I wasn't a blubbering mess. I remember saying to my husband at both the 8 week and 12 week scan, "I'm tapping," and he just replied, "I know."
Even now, as I'm still a newish mother and dealing with the stresses and guilt of going back to work and some difficult family situations, I use tapping to clear my head, and my heart, so that I can acknowledge what I am feeling and allow myself to more coherently and clearly look at the problem.
Tapping is really a life skill, and I will take it with me forever.
Thank you, Rosalind. I'm so glad I met you.”
