I feel so different this morning and I have you to thank. Your understanding of me and of my situation was right on point and I thank you for your skillful guidance. The pressure I was feeling has eased so that there is no danger of imminent explosion here! I'm going to enjoy the sunshine today free of the angst that has been plaguing me!"
…I'm doing great integrating the changes since we last met…Thank you for helping me make great shifts in my life."
Thank you again for today's session. I was really surprised by just how much it helped. As you know, I was a bit of a skeptic beforehand, and I've never responded at all to things like hypnosis, so I was really unsure as to whether EFT was going to work for me – but it really did.
It was a very different experience from what I expected, too – much more complex, kind of exploratory, gradually addressing each issue as it came up, and gradually uncovering things I didn't even know were there, till we got to the root of it. And when we did, it was amazing how the emotions that had been causing me problems just seemed to melt away. I felt a great sense of release.
I still feel very relaxed now, which is a very rare thing for me!
And I want to thank you not just for what you did, but how you did it: relaxed, down to earth, and with a great sense of humor that really helped me feel safe and relaxed. You always heard exactly what I was saying, and you have a real gift for spotting the heart of the matter.

To say that Paula has helped me would not even begin to describe the scope of our work together. In a very short time, issues that I had been carrying for years that were getting in the way of my happiness, success, and well-being were transformed. I had no idea that anything could work so fast. Paula is truly a gifted healer and a master at EFT. Just a few sessions with Paula did more for me than years of therapy.

The way I felt during and after the EFT session that evening was a mixture of calmness, of being centered, and of feeling whole and utterly okay. I was also so relaxed and tired that I felt like a limp noodle. I attribute the last feeling to letting go of the anxiety that is so often with me and the obscene drain on my energy that the anxiety causes. The sudden absence of this anxiety left me limp, but I slept extremely well that night and woke up refreshed and energized the next morning. I can only imagine the power of EFT sessions over an extended period long enough for beliefs held over a lifetime to change the neural pathways to new, positive, and life-affirming thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Paula's session was nothing short of amazing. Thank you for this gift, Paula.
As an EFT practitioner for many years I was not expecting electric results after one session with Paula. What a surprise. The issue I had dealing with a monopolize-every-moment brother-in-law became a non-issue the very next day even though we were car-bound on the way to a funeral for hours and hours. I am so grateful. Paula’s remarkable intuition guides the session, and I believe that is made easy by the way she engenders trust right from the start. I felt completely at ease going wherever she suggested, and by the end of the session I found myself in new emotional clothing. Ask my wife about the results! SHE was thrilled too.

Being taken through the EFT with Paula was very interesting – I'm familiar with the technique having watched some videos about it, and I have experimented a little myself, but I've never found I got a great deal from it. So I was interested to be on the receiving end of a session with an expert… And expert Paula proved to be.
What I found interesting was how she seemed to intuitively 'tune in' to what I was experiencing and thinking with regard to my pessimism. I gave a description of it before the session, but Paula seemed able to find a selection of words and phrases that fitted with the experience I was having. That gave the experience a vividness that was quite striking, and I certainly found that the strong feeling I started with dissipated, and changed form, very effectively.

I remember when you came to visit me in the hospital after my surgery and I felt awful. I was in pain, wanted to throw up, had stomach upset and I felt so miserable and so tired. I longed to sleep. You offered a healing ritual (surrogate EFT) and you asked if I felt better, and I remember saying that no, the pain and wanting to throw up were still there, but I felt peaceful. I remember falling asleep, waking up feeling better and you were still there. It was one of the blessed moments when my friends made all the difference in world to my well-being in the hospital. Thank you.
A miracle occurred this morning! I was nervous, but when I sang my solo I did NOT get the racing heart which destroys the breathing! It was an awesome miracle! And I had the song memorized, and was able to actually look around the sanctuary at people! … I am in awe… I am still amazed. I can’t tell you the last time I have sung when my heart did not race out of control. I actually felt a freedom when I sang – to actually sing – to get into the song – to become one with the music. Thank you so much Paula!…
I have had five EFT sessions with you, Paula, and I must say that when I first started back in the spring of this year, I was skeptical. I have had performance anxiety, and hence trouble with breath support, my entire singing life and the idea that some emotional freedom therapy might help me sounded a bit crazy. But at the advice of a friend, I tried it, and I can't say enough about how much I have been helped!
"In music school, I developed debilitating stage fright borne of intense self-doubt as to my pianistic abilities. My fear wasn’t limited to the idea that something terrible might happen during a performance. Rather, I felt certain that the inadequacies of my playing would be glaringly revealed such that I would be thought a fool for presuming to perform at all.
I was feeling a bit of anxiety when I went to the talk – but not anything significant. I took a few minutes when I parked to get focused and I did some tapping on the karate chop points. It was helpful. The talk went well – I was mostly relaxed and focused on what they needed. I had another event today but stayed pretty calm and focused. I do believe you helped me manage my nerves – Thank you!

Paula, I have been doing what you showed me and I have downloaded the book, and it might be crazy but I am more relaxed and I feel better about myself and think that I might be able to lift these weights that have had me for so many years. My girl friend asked me if there was someone special and I had to laugh and tell her just me.
She said I looked more relaxed and happy. Thanks so much. DK
I wanted to thank you for those 'tapping journeys' you've guided me on. You have an uncanny gift for going to the heart of things and hitting nails on heads with your choice of words. And oddest of all, it works! It's not just that I feel different afterwards, I'm also freer in what I do, more direct and with less friction somehow.
Thank you :)

I am writing to express how grateful I am for the EFT session I had with you a few months ago. My life has changed in profound ways because of it. As you might recall, we worked on an early childhood event that had a profound effect on how I viewed my place in the world. That event said to me: "Be Invisible. Don’t Show Up. Don’t Shine. If I can do something well, I better not let anyone else see it. And maybe I don’t have permission to do well in the first place.”
That incident informed my entire life as I tended to not follow through on things, not pursue my dreams, so often falling short and putting up with disappointment after disappointment in myself.
When we met, I was already familiar with EFT. I knew it was a powerful healing modality. But I hadn’t yet had a one-on-one session with anyone. I immediately felt your presence. You were focused on me absolutely every second of the session. I felt that you were completely tuned in to me. You repeated my words many times and I felt that you really wanted to understand what I was saying. And then you skillfully used my words when you were setting up the dialogue. I felt a connection to you because what I realized is that what you provided for me was exactly what was missing during my whole childhood. I felt that you were fulfilling the role of Mother, noticing the child that was never noticed.
The emotional support I felt enabled me to go to a very deep place within. While it was painful to go there, I felt safe in the process with you. The session with you healed a large part of this trauma. Now I find myself pursuing personal interests and moving ahead with things and getting things done. It’s quite amazing!
My 12 years of psychotherapy helped me to understand my situation, to understand my parents, to understand why they treated me as they did. But, it wasn’t until the EFT session with you that I truly felt a genuine release from a lot of this emotional trauma. While I still remember the incident, I no longer feel the overwhelming emotional trauma I had carried with me all these years.
One way this has had a positive impact in my daily life has to do with the piano. From an early age, I loved to play the piano. But I quickly learned not to. Not to allow myself the pleasure. Not to allow myself to excel. I might have practiced my required lesson pieces, but rarely for my own pleasure. Certainly not for more than 5 minutes at a time. “I wasn’t good enough” my inner voices reminded me. Now, I am enjoying playing the piano for the first time in my life!

Thank you very much for that. I really appreciate it.
It has made me feel a lot better – lighter and there's more space for new energy.
Thank you for your generosity.
