I came to see Aaran as I had a fear of closed in spaces, My usual tactic was to avoid being in any kind of small room, lift, etc. I made a decision that I had had enough of this, after so many years it was becoming a major problem, having to always use the stairs was becoming annoying. I was recommended to Aaran by a good friend after a conversation with her about how sick and tired I had become with having to cope with this problem.
Aaran was able to explain to me how he may be able to help using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), some sort of tapping on acupressure points, at that time I thought to myself oh right, sure !! His gentle and caring approach helped me to feel comfortable and as he said why not give it a try the only thing you have to lose is the problem. By the end of our first session I already felt as though it was not going to bother me again, when I thought about it, I was ok.
Aaran thought it was a good idea to test the results, so our second session involved going to a shopping mall and being able to take the lift, this was something I’d never do by myself, to begin with a little bit of the feelings of fear came back, Aaran did his EFT right there with me and within another 20 minutes I was fine. Since then I have had no further or any ongoing problems, I can be in a small space and not experience and of the anxiety I would previously had, lifts are no longer any issue for me.
Thank you Aaran.
