Chhaya Shah Emotional Freedom Technique

Chhaya Shah
EFT Practitioner in Twickenham

Chhaya's interest in Complementary Medicine developed whilst working in training and management roles over 20 years ago. Her interest led her to explore a wide range of Complementary Therapies extensively. She has established a successful practice in clinics based at Ealing and Twickenham, West London, which offers a range of complementary therapies including counselling, CBT, EMDR, EFT and empowering therapies. She also offers talking therapies through Skype and telephone. Chhaya also treats various athletes in order to improve performance and injury rehabilitation and prevention as works with clients who have everyday aches and pains and injuries. She is a also a qualified supervisor and lecturer and runs her own Academy.

Chhaya is an accredited psychotherapist with BACP and BABCP, currently working in the NHS and in private practice. She is highly experienced in working with ethnic minorities and regular offers sessions in Gujarati. She has a keen interest in working with clients affected by trauma, particularly post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of domestic violence, sexual assault including childhood sexual abuse, bullying, phobias, OCD, anxiety, depression, panic, asylum and immigration issues. She has written reports for court hearings and attended court as an expert witness.

Chhaya works integratively and collaboratively with clients to help them understand how the mind and body affect each other, using a holistic approach. Chhaya can help clients work through traumatic experiences without having to verbalise events, if they are too overwhelming. Her approach includes using CBT, EMDR, EFT, Rewind Technique and Mindfulness in order to reduce distress, panic, anxiety and depression. She offers a positive psychological approach by motivating clients to make emotional and behavioural changes in order to build up self esteem and improve their mood.

Relationships between two or more individuals can be very stressful and can impact work/life balance. She believes that all relationships include working collaboratively and compassionately as a team and this includes helping clients to build a relationship with themselves. Chhaya helps clients navigate their way through their difficult journey, offering hope along the way.

Chhaya supervises complementary therapy practitioners and psychotherapists in group and individual settings working with their preferred models, whilst sharing insight of her own. This helps her to continue her journey in learning from others.
