About Noreen Barron of Energy and Intention Waterford Ireland

Noreen Barron, EFT practitioner, Waterford, Ireland Things have a way of coming full circle; while completing an MA in design, I did a project called 'Poetry in Motion'; a multimedia DVD for teaching poetry. It reignited my passion for the importance of feelings and emotions in our lives. I had originally wanted to study psychology, but life took me down a different path. I ended up studying photography which I still love, but now I feel like I'm finally doing what I'm meant to be doing.

I have an MA in Counselling & Psychotherapy and completed my thesis on trauma and dissociation (1st class honours). There is an Irish psychiatrist called Ivor Browne, now in his 80s, and I love his definition of trauma; unexperienced experience. It is so simple and elegant. I believe that experiences remain unexperienced because of dissociation. That is how important dissociation is to trauma; they are inherently linked. Hence my passion for feeling our emotions and how that is related to resolving trauma and dissociation. I am particularly interested in somatic dissociation and how it shows up in the body in various symptoms/conditions.

I am also an advanced certified Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) practitioner (I also trained with Gary Craig and Patricia Carrington), and clinical hypnotherapist (Advanced Diploma). I am a member of the Association of Professional Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Ireland, AAMET and the Guild of Energists. I keep up with the latest research both for my own enjoyment and to fulfill my continuing professional development requirements (50 hours per year). Some workshops and courses that I have completed:
