What People Are Saying
“Even through all my ‘I don’t knows’ Karen was able to help me see more clearly. I think the most important thing I realized is that I can accept my shit thoughts without attaching MORE negativity to them. I was able to release that extra negativity and DEAL with my shit thoughts and move on a lot more easily.” ~ Tara McKinney, Photographer at Tara McKinney Photography
“I’ve made more progress and have had more ‘ah-ha’ moments from a handful of sessions with Karen than from years of therapy. Her combination of examining my thoughts, feelings and behavior, gently guiding me to find the root of the issue at hand and using Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) has helped me better understand why I do the things I do.
I look forward to my sessions with Karen, as they give me a chance to unpack the events that have bothered me and better understand my actions and reactions. I think of myself as pretty self-aware, but am always surprised by what we uncover when we delve more deeply.
As I’m in Australia, my sessions with Karen have been done via Skype, which hasn’t hindered the EFT/tapping process at all. After our sessions Karen generally emails me some ‘thought’ work for me to ponder until we next Skype again. So the distance is no object as it’s working well.
My sessions with Karen are challenging and confronting, but most importantly, they are very valuable.” ~ Deborah Cook, Aussie blogger at debbish.com and dietschmiet.me
“Karen C.L. Anderson has managed to merge the psychological, spiritual, biological and emotional elements of self-image, self-awareness and self-love in such a way that it will speak to many people, especially women. Brava!” ~ Dr. Diane Hardgrave, Medical Anthropologist
