  1. Steve’s information on anxiety and “tapping” was simple and clearly well researched. My son has been suffering from anxiety for sometime now and I’m trusting that the “tapping” technique will help solve his problem. Thank-you!

    1. Thanks Lizzie. I use the tapping in my counselling practice and personally along with my daughter and family and I’m sure it will help. Let me know how you go and if we can help further.
