To make an appointment

Please use the form above to request a no-obligation, free 10-minute consultation.  Your contact information is private, and will only be used to contact you to set up an appointment or send information. It is not shared or sold.

Cost

Twenty minute sessions are $35; 60 minute sessions are $100.  Payment is by check or PayPal in advance.  A PayPal payment request will be sent once your session is booked.  If you do not experience a shift or improvement of any sort in your issue after the session, you may request a refund or a second session at no cost, as you prefer.

Consultation

When I receive your form, I contact you to set up a free 10 minute consultation by phone, I will ask you to provide information on your specific issue by email before our 10 minute consultation. 

Before our call, I will send you a chart of the points used in EFT acupressure tapping.  In the 10 minute call, I will confirm your main issue, and then lead you through a tapping round so that you can see for yourself how EFT is done, and the shifts and changes in mood, skills and thinking that you are likely to notice from a session. 

At that time, we will also set up your first session appointment.  If you have questions we can discuss them in the phone consultation, or by email at any time. 

Schedule

Appointments are booked in 20 minute or 60 minute blocks.  Appointments are generally available between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Central Time, Monday through Friday.  Weekend appointments are sometimes available.

Other information

Session appointments are by telephone.  However, if you are located in the greater Houston (Texas, USA) area, in person appointments can be made at your barn, farm or office.  I will be happy to meet you at a riding session or lesson, where we can work on your specific issue on location and in real time. 

What's a session like?

Before the session, you'll receive a session preparation sheet.  About an hour before the session, please drink 8 oz. of water to make sure you're hydrated for the session, and have some water on hand during the session.

In the session, we'll discuss what your riding issue or problem is.  We'll explore the physical components of your issue, as well as the thoughts, beliefs and feelings you have about it.   We'll establish what a desirable outcome is for you. 

For example, you might tell me, "I had a bad riding accident, and now I'm terrified to canter.  My horse is acting up and I'm afraid I will get thrown again."  If I ask you where you feel the fear when you think about the accident, you might say, "I feel my stomach flip-flopping and my palms sweating."  You might also discuss mental issues:  "I can't stop thinking about the accident" or emotional ones: "I feel sad that I can't enjoy my horse."

This information will help us craft your tapping statements.  I'll formulate the statement and lead you through the tapping sequence.  We'll evaluate your emotional and physical responses after 1-2 rounds of tapping, and then repeat this process throughout the session to help reduce the physical, mental and emotional reactions that are holding you back from riding your best, and enjoying it.

At the end of the session, I'll give you suggestions on how to apply your tapping routine, including specific statements to use on your own.  I will furnish you with either a recording or a written tapping "script" for your daily use before the next appointment.  Within a week, I'll follow up with you by email (included in the session fee) to find out how you're doing, answer any questions, and help you assess your progress.

 

 




Some "side effects" you might notice from EFT:

Improved mood and sleep occurs for some people.  This can be because you've freed up emotional and mental energy that were being used to focus on the stressful situation.

Enhanced problem solving can occur.  Tension reduces our ability to consider and use a wide range of solutions to the problems we encounter.  Mental and emotional relaxation free up "brain power" in the frontal lobes so we make better use of our coping strategies.

Overall tension can decrease.  The benefits of EFT usually generalize into other, seemingly unrelated tensions.  And of course, once you know the technique, it can be applied to any life situation.  Sometimes the effect can be very subtle; we simply realize that things that were bothering us don't bother us any more. 

A general sense of lightness and well-being can be felt.  People often comment on a sense of lightness, a feeling as if a load has been lifted.  Some mention feeling less tense in shoulders and/or neck.
