"...You helped me dig deeper to understand all my childhood traumas which were the real issue, to keep me stuck in the past.  Just wanted to say that I noticed a real difference in my relationship with my parents and myself."

Testimonial of Archana Shirsat (EFT 6 session program), december 2023

"

I really don't know how to thank you for today's session.I am still amazed at the sessions we had.  Just wanted to express my deep gratitude for the experience. The fact that you have really mastered these techniques makes such a huge difference in the lives of those you touch, myself as well as others, I'm sure. 

Today you really got all myself back. You helped me dig deeper to understand all my childhood traumas which were the real issue, to keep me stuck in the past.  Just wanted to say that I noticed a real difference in my relationship with my parents and myself.  I'm sure that a definite shift / transformation has occurred in me.  I was so impressed with our sessions and the work you do.

Every session, we reached a different level of understanding. You are a very powerful coach/ therapist / practitioner with lots of tools in your hands. You know what / when to use.The sessions she did for me, cannot say thank you enough. Today I am experiencing my real independence which I was seeking. Love you darling. Lots of Gratitude

"Today I am experiencing my real independence which I was seeking."

"...for the first time ever, I released each unpleasant memory of lizards. The catharsis even made me wander into other related, even if vaguely, uncomfortable memories. At the cost of sounding eeky, it was like pressing out a large, puss filled boil, right to the last bit. That emotional release really de-burdens."

Testimonial of a client with Lizard Phobia (2 sessions fears & phobia program), 20/09/2020

"I wanted to tackle my absolute phobia towards lizards. I have had that all my life of 42 years. 

My experience :

Carolien explained the technique to me, briefly, but effectively. That itself appealed a lot to me, because as a person, I believe in addressing a problem at its roots. 

In the two sessions, for the first time ever, I released each unpleasant memory of lizards. The catharsis even made me wander into other related, even if vaguely, uncomfortable memories. At the cost of sounding eeky, it was like pressing out a large, puss filled boil, right to the last bit. That emotional release really de-burdens. I highly, highly would recommend this, for anyone who has had a long standing animal phobia, or a fear of any sort, anger or insecurity. 

After the release, I could logically arrange my disgust and fear of lizards in my thinking. Like - okay so I don't like the shape and its crawly movement. But it is a living being, just like scores of others, including me. There is no pressure on me to start loving them, but it would help ME to accept their existence.

"If i see a wall lizard now,[..] i don't go ballistic. Moreover, I don't have a fear or discomfort lurking in my head that a lizard could strike me anytime by appearing..."

"...I could see how unprocessed emotions were navigating my life and how EFT tapping was an incredibly useful and direct tool to understand and release them."

Testimonial of a client with Anxiety (anxiety & depression program), 26/8/2020

"As a fellow resident of our area I have known Carolien as the voice of compassion and reason on many sensitive issues. So, when she shared that she was giving a talk on EFT, I got interested, even though I had never heard of EFT or NLP before.

 

From the very first session with Carolien, I could see how unprocessed emotions were navigating my life and how EFT tapping was an incredibly useful and direct tool to understand and release them. As we go through life, at times we have experiences which we don’t know how to deal with, emotions that we have not even named and yet carry them within for years. And unknowingly they become the guiding force of our lives. Dealing with such emotions can be murky, confusing and overwhelming. And it’s incredible how Carolien helped me figure out things at my own pace with immense compassion and inputs which lead to a lot of simple yet powerful insights.

 

I also underwent a very difficult phase of anxiety. And I don’t know how I would have navigated through it without Carolien’s help. EFT and NLP techniques that we used were very useful for me to understand and deal with the reasons of this anxiety.

 

Ultimately, I made a lot of progress in self-awareness and acceptance during this most terrifying experience. Carolien was a constant support and guide even beyond our sessions. Since then I have been making meaningful changes in all aspects of my life - from relationships and my work to everyday lifestyle choices."

"...Her non-confrontational approach towards our sessions were greatly helpful and comforting. I’m also grateful to her for helping me really understand the science behind it all [...] this  has helped me work on my interpersonal relationships with greater understanding, something I particularly struggled with...."

Testimonial of a client with Depression, 9/10/2020

"I started working with Carolien in June 2019 and continue to work with her. While working through my anxiety and depression, my sessions with Carolien provided me with a judgement free environment.

Our sessions weren’t in pursuit of an ideal response or behaviour, rather Carolien helped me divert my energy towards re-living traumatic events of the past and processing them with her gentle guidance and tapping. Re-living certain traumatic events from the past, helped me to come face to face with the underlying causes of a lot of my behaviour patterns, the root of causes of my anxiety.

Her non-confrontational approach towards our sessions were greatly helpful and comforting. I’m also grateful to her for helping me really understand the science behind it all - a reactive amygdala response vs a well thought out response by the pre frontal cortex, this has helped me work on my interpersonal relationships with greater understanding, something I particularly struggled with."
