Jules Vandermaat and Katie Walker have created a program for women dependent on alcohol called Sober October. Jules and Katie are both certified advanced practitioners in Emotional Freedom Techniques EFT/tapping.
Jules Vandermaat is an Accredited Certified Advanced EFT Practitioner with EFT International, and a highly qualified Social Worker and therapist with over 30 years of combined experience.
She specialises in helping people recover from trauma, and in particular she works with those who have experienced the trauma of sexual abuse.
She has a thriving private practice in Coffs Harbour, Australia, working with people from around the world.
Jules is also an Evidence Based EFT Trainer with Dr Peta Stapleton’s team, teaching health professionals about the science and research behind EFT tapping and how to successfully incorporate it into their therapy practice.
Jules first discovered EFT whilst working at the Sexual Assault Service. She was on the verge of burn out at the time, as she found that the traditional talk therapies in which she was trained in were just not helping her clients with their trauma. It was so clear in that setting that the trauma was living in the bodies of her clients, and many of them were barely able to talk about what happened to them, no matter what other therapies they had tried. The cognitive based therapies were not helpful, and could even be harmful, but as a somatic modality, EFT made a huge difference, bringing the body back in to therapy.
Since discovering EFT, Jules has never looked back, as she watched it safely and gently transform the lives of the clients she worked with, some of whom had suffered for decades with PTSD, anxiety, shame and self-blame.
Together Jules and Katie love teaching people the power of EFT, and they share lots of great information, tips and tools for reducing stress, anxiety and cravings so people can feel good naturally without needing alcohol to calm themselves down or lift themselves up.
