It is now 2 years since FAST Trauma Support opened its doors, and we are now needed EVEN MORE than ever to help with burnout, exhaustion, continuing stress and symptoms of PTSD.
Whether you’re based in the NHS, public or private sector care, or the Emergency Services, we’re here to offer our therapeutic skills, expertise and time to help you release stress & trauma, and share highly effective, yet simple self-help tools that can be used anywhere, any time.
All our practitioners hold advanced qualifications and have extensive post-qualification training and experience working with trauma. Confidence is key when it comes to our services.
As a healthcare or emergency worker dealing with the Covid-19 crisis, you’ve faced a period of unprecedented stress, pressure and uncertainty. Any problem, big or small, we can help, with no judgement and a listening ear.
As healthcare professionals, we understand the environment you may be experiencing. As well as this, every member of staff is highly trained to ensure you feel understood throughout the whole process.
If you’ve been impacted by the Covid-crisis in any way -whether recently or in the very early stages – our service is here to support you. Even just a couple of shorter sessions can make a big difference to how you feel – and to your quality of life.
You don’t have to be experiencing constant high anxiety to benefit from our service – and Covid-19 doesn’t have to be the main focus of the sessions. In fact, many of our clients who waited to request help commented that they wish they’d got in touch sooner. Talk through your issues with us, and realise the calm and clarity you could be experiencing.
We know this is an extremely busy time for all healthcare and emergency workers. That’s why we’ve aimed to make our service as flexible as possible. If you’re a frontline professional and you’re only able to make one or two sessions, we’d still encourage you to get in touch. We are offering each person who signs up with us four Emotional Freedom Technique sessions.
Minimal contact and maximum convenience. Fit the help you need into your schedule.

What our clients are saying …
“When I first connected with my FAST EFT therapist on Zoom, my overwhelm was so intense I couldn’t even speak. Everything was a scrambled mass of mixed emotions. I mirrored the practitioner’s tapping while she gently reassured me, making me feel safe to acknowledge and tune in to my feelings, and they all began to unravel til the intensities lowered. I started to think straight again and, with her help, started to change the way I had been looking at things, putting a different light on them. It felt so liberating and, to my surprise ( and relief) the results have lasted since then. Just brilliant!”

WHAT ARE CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Our support has immediate impact…
“An amazing free service that has helped me to keep going at the most intense time of my life.
We do not need clapping we need resources like FAST and its nurturing ethos. Money invested bottom up, so we can direct it to those in need. Please consider donating to FAST right now so they can carry on.
FAST is an incredibly caring resource that created a safe place to feel, cry and explore ways to increase resilience, with EFT tapping as a new skill that I can really use and revisit”
“Before my FAST experience I was off the rating out of 10. It was 1000!
In my first session I saw a change down to 3/10 and it has not gone back up. I find the techniques very functional, with real life relevance and applicable, which results in a positive impact in my ability to cope.
I wanted to thank you for your incredible compassion and professionalism with me. All of you are so kind to donate your time and expertise to people like us and of course we can never thank you enough for this. Thank you ever so much for helping me.”
“FAST was introduced to me by a friend who knew I needed help. I have a stressful job, in the heart of Corvid19. Mainly caring on the palliative care side where death has been frequent. My memory was failing me. I had become isolated. I was struggling to converse, and even eat and drink. My amazing FAST practitioner helped dial down my stress, bring back clarity and re-charge my energy. If you need help like I did, please turn to a FAST practitioner. I have no doubt it will be a positive step to recovery. Please reach out. FAST is amazing.”
“Being able to talk has really helped. Naming the issue, seeing it, all the while tapping, has been the most valuable. I understand it now. I have a got better and feel. I regularly use the tapping if I feel a panic attack coming on. I no longer need my asthma pump and don’t even know where it is!”
“FAST has helped me be able to accept any feelings and question negative beliefs. To have a way out of negative thought spirals.
I am so grateful. It’s such a generous offering and it was so needed. I really would like more people who are carers to access resources like this to help them process their feelings and emotions, and especially after what we have been through in this pandemic”
“I admit I was skeptical about EFT. However, I have personally learnt how EFT can have amazing results in treating fear and anxiety relating to traumatic events either present or past.
A simple yet powerful, non-invasive method that yields really quick, long lasting results and which also gives a self-help tool that can be used at any time and in any place. It can’t take away what front-line workers are having to deal with, but it will definitely help them cope with the emotional burden they are inevitably carrying”
