CLEARING HER RELATIONSHIP WITH MONEY  When Paige volunteered to tape this EFT session, she was seriously overspending and underearning. She felt trapped in a way of life that wasn't satisfying to her even though on the surface she looked successful.

I talked to her 6 months after we taped this session and she had quit her job, sold the contents of her apartment, and used Kickstarter to successfully fund an art project where she traveled all over the east coast for 3 months. She said, "The funny thing is that I have more money in my bank account now than I ever did when I had a job. I'm no longer spending money out of fear."

She's now off to northern California to do a 3 month art residency where she'll be teaching and making art with the community. She's extremely happy and excited about this opportunity.

Way to go, Paige!!!

My body's talking to me

November 25, 2013
My wonderful Energy Medicine teacher, Marcia Rowland, recently lent me a book called, "The Healing Power Of Illness." It's about how the conflicts we haven't resolved at a conscious level show up in our bodies as illness or even accidents and have a message for us. There's something so freeing about taking ultimate responsibility for our lives and giving our selves the space to inquire about what's true.

One of my methods of doing this is to write with my non-dominant hand. I write a question with my right hand and let my left had write an answer. I always get amazing information. Yesterday I got the message that I need to change a few things in my life or I'll keep getting bladder infections. The minute I understood and accepted the truth of what my left hand had written, my body felt like a weight had been lifted from it.

What's the truth your body is trying to tell you???

Will Everything Turn Out Okay?

August 30, 2013
I worked with a deaf woman today and had a lovely time getting to know her. She brought an interpreter along who was lovely as well. We used EFT Meridian Tapping to release her stress around a major life decision that would soon happen. She was worried that it wouldn't turn out well. This woman has had mega-challenges in her life, and yet has come through them with her beautiful spirit intact.

So we tapped on, "Even though I'm worried this won't turn out well, I completely and deeply accept my...

Releasing Anxiety

August 27, 2013
I worked with a new client recently who suffers from a lot of anxiety. We looked at what seems to trigger it and did some EFT on her general fear of being anxious and the impact of that on her relationships. We worked on the most recent event where she felt anxious, and reduced the discomfort level of that significantly.

We looked at what tools she already has that she can use at the onset of the anxiety, and gave her some new tools as well.

I'm learning more about Energy Medicine (I'm 70 hou...

Fear of Flying gone -- poof!

June 20, 2013
She hadn't flown in years because of her fear of heights. But my client didn't want to miss a big family reunion happening across the country from where she lives. She booked the flight then panicked when she thought about actually getting on the plane. When she asked me to do an EFT session on her fear of heights, I wasn't sure we could get her a result it in just one session, which was all we had time for. But I told her we'd give it a try.

We discovered that her fear started when a carnival...

A Wise Person's Gathering

March 3, 2013
Yesterday I hosted a Wise Person's Gathering for a young woman who's 25 years old and feels confused about her career path. There were five of us there to brainstorm with her and give her our best connections. What a gift to see her go from scared and blocked to excited and hopeful. It took very little effort on the part of the rest of us, and made such a big difference.

Do you know anyone who needs a creative boost in their life who you could host a Wise Person's Gathering for? It will give ...

When you want to run away from your job

November 15, 2012
A client emailed me this morning with this: 

"I'm having one of those days where all I can think about is getting out of the life I'm living...
mostly because of my job and my feeling of unimportance.
I want to run away."

Here's what I emailed back:

"Some tips, if you feel like trying them:

Be a spiritual beacon for everyone around you, sending out pure love and acceptance in a 40 foot radius.

Take a co-worker to coffee and find out more about them.

Do a task with the intention of doing it immacu...

Stress Relief Video: Kathleen's Six Intense Things

November 2, 2012

When I coached Kathleen about the pain in her body and what it might be connected to, she talked about all the intense situations
currently going on in her life. We counted them and they added up to six. We used EFT meridian tapping to release the stress around having all that stress!
Kathleen went from a 7 (on a discomfort scale of 0 -10 with 10 being the most discomfort) to a 4 in one round, and was actually laughing by the end of it when she realized the absurdity of constant...

Saying "I Quit"

October 11, 2012
One of my clients came to our session last night and said, "Guess what -- I quit my job!" Her face had a big smile on it and there was creative energy pouring off her. She hired me several months ago to help her figure out where her career was going. We did several sessions on releasing her stress around a particular co-worker who was tormenting her.

When we first started coaching, we did a Core Values Assessment -- and "freedom" turned out to be one of her top values. We then talked about ...

At The Woman's Club

August 18, 2012

Last Tuesday I got to lead a Stress Relief workshop for 100 people at The Woman's Club of Minneapolis. The building the club is housed in is a historic, very elegant place full of wonderful people and excellent food!

I heard a lot of stress around issues like physical pain and illness, worry about family members, and grief over the death of a spouse. I taught them how to use EFT meridian tapping and we saw a lot of the stress dissolve or at least lessen.

I love sharing this tool with people b...

What is stress relief coaching?

At some point in our lives, we all experience stress -- it could be in our career, our health or our relationships. There’s often a feeling of loss and helplessness that makes it difficult to take the actions that will lead to feeling better. Coaching can help release what's blocking you so you can move through stress and get back on track with your life.

You might hire me because you are:
• dreading going to work every day
• dealing with a chronic health issue like weight gain
• experiencing conflict in a close relationship

I gently help you deal with external and internal blocks using tools that have worked with hundreds of clients.

Laurie is a stress relief coach who has helped hundreds of clients with their career, health + relationships. She's also an international workshop leader.



How does coaching work?

I offer a free sample session so we can decide if we're a good fit. If we are...

... we do an initial 3 hour discovery session. We start with a Core Values assessment. Your Core Values are a snapshot of you, and can be used numerically to make decisions. As your coach, I look at your list before each coaching session to see if the choices you're making line up with your values. If they don't, I call it to your attention so you can reconsider.

Next we do a Perfect Life Vision wheel. This helps you know where you currently are in relation to what you most want. Knowing how you'd design your life if you had no constraints helps us develop your Success Contract.

Your Success Contract is three goals you want to be held accountable for meeting, with an end date for meeting them.

Our coaching sessions are all about what happens when you take actions toward your goals and perhaps get stuck. For example, my client D. found that when she voiced her dream to someone who was less than enthusiastic, she felt deflated and unable to take further action. We were able to look at the underlying belief ("I'm stupid and naive") and look at all the successes she'd had in spite of having that feeling. We did some EFT Meridian Tapping and cleared the blocks out. This allowed her to move past other people's opinions and do what she wanted to with her career and her life.

We celebrate your success.
