Short answer is no. Therapy is a healthcare profession set up to provide long-term support and healing. It generally looks to the past to understand where certain beliefs originated.

EFT Tapping, provides a bridge between coaching and therapy. It involves tapping on acupressure points to process & release emotions.

I've discovered that for myself and many others, it is still very effective to receive coaching or tapping online. It's also wonderfully convenient and for some more comfortable since you don't have to commute anywhere or deal with a strange new environment. Just grab your computer and get comfortable.

Are you a sexologist?
