About Dr Margaret Lambert

I am a registered psychologist, author and speaker. My PhD  evaluated the effects of using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), otherwise known as tapping, for anxiety in primary school children in Darwin, schools.

My first book, Longing to Live: Journey with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, published in 2013, received an Honourable Mention in the London Book Festival. My second book, Longing to Live Mindfully: Little Words that make a Difference, released in 2016 raises funds for ChildFund Australia, helping to reduce poverty for children in developing countries.

In the past, I have been a regular writer for the South West Voice newspaper with focus on health and wellbeing. My health articles underscore my belief in the interflow of the body, mind and spirit, and the importance of healing and nurturing each aspect of ourselves in order to achieve optimum health and wellbeing and to come closer to reaching our potential.

As a speaker, I’ve been privileged to present at conferences both in Australia and overseas and on a number of occasions have been guest speaker to a variety of audiences.

Born and raised in Kiama, New South Wales, I have lived most of her life in the Northern Territory, working and living in remote communities and in Darwin. My personal struggles and illness with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) / Fibromyalgia (FM) have led to my interest in energy therapies and Energy Psychology.

In 2004, I established my psychology and coaching practice, Connect Counselling Services in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. In my practice, I conduct psychological and coaching sessions as well as professional supervision sessions for mental health professionals. As an advanced practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) or Tapping, I use the techniques both clinically and to train others (see Training and Workshops).

The EFT treatment I studied with Gary Craig, the founder of EFT in Chicago, along with Dr Mercola, Dr Carol Look and Dr Susan Lee Smith with focus on: “EFT and Serious Diseases”. It was also enlightening and fun to undertake additional workshops in EFT with Australian experts David Lake and Steve Wells.

My former qualifications are in Education and Library & Information Science and my educational experience spans from pre-school through to university with indigenous and non-indigenous students.
