Here are some kind words from people who have worked with me:
“Working with Inger has been transformative not just for my 10 year old daughter but for the whole family. We asked for Inger’s help because of my daughter’s terrifying panic attacks/emotional melt-downs. She lived in constant fear of getting in trouble at school and described the inside of her head as “all the drawers being open at the same time”. She had been referred to CAHMS by our GP.
I knew I was a worrier with a tendency to over-explain and over-protect because of my huge fear that my childhood history would repeat itself on her.
Since seeing Inger, my daughter is now much more confident in herself. She’s able to ring doorbells, go into shops, pay voluntarily and ask for food from waiters. Before, that would have been unthinkable.
She is settled at school and has even asked if she could do an overnight boarding! I am so excited for her – this shows just how far she has come and how much more secure she is feeling now.
Inger has gently helped me to see that I was feeding my daughter’s insecurities. I’ve changed my own behaviour so I don’t do that anymore, and I’m now able to put my foot down with her when I need to.
Before we saw Inger, I felt powerless. My lack of understanding was holding my daughter back. Now, I feel empowered. It’s a fantastic feeling to know that I’m able to do something constructive that will help her to recognise how confident she really is!
Surrogate tapping definitely works and is a great thing to have in your toolbox as a parent.
I now feel much better about expressing what I want and how I feel and our household is generally happier and more relaxed as a result. I know it’s a cliché, but I feel I have found myself again. I feel upbeat and engaged, and even my sister has commented that I’m more like my old self.
I still have the same tendencies to overprotect and to overthink, but I’m aware of it now and I know how to stop myself.
And my own childhood stuff? I am over that now too!”

“I turned to Inger for help with my 6 year old son, when I really was at the end of my tether with his extremely angry behaviour.
His school claimed he was extremely well behaved so didn’t understand the problem and I refused to take him to the GP for fear of unnecessary medication being given.
I had tried every trick in the book from punishments to rewards with no success at all.
Inger was available with a kind, sympathetic and, importantly for me, a non-judgemental ear to listen, guide and advise but also with a plan to help Thomas to resolve his behavioral issues so we could really get to the root of the problem and find me the light at the end of the tunnel.
As a result of the sessions he had with Inger, my son is a happier, calmer child and now has the ability to talk me through the emotions he’s feeling at that moment, instead of exhibiting the dreadful outbursts of anger and despair and anxiety he previously did.
I would not let the cost deter me because the methods my son learned are life long tools he can use again and again.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone who is struggling with a child who is bursting with anger and anxiety and needs help.”

“My main concern about signing my daughter up for the Pathway Process was that it is a large financial outlay that requires a leap of faith despite the money back guarantee.
My daughter has been so grateful and amazed. You only find out how badly she actually felt – and was suffering in silence – after the treatment when she could express herself so much more freely and happily.
She says that she now feels like a normal person again rather than someone feeling ‘mad’ and that it had felt like wearing a really tight band with a metal lump pressing into her which she ‘wore’ 24/7.<
The biggest benefit is that she has found her old happy-go-lucky self again.
I am a huge advocate of EFT and know that it is very effective. I think it should be taught to every teenager in the world.”

We came to see Inger when H was struggling with bullying at school. Through his work with Inger H was able to work through his feelings of sadness and isolation, importantly Inger helped him to distance himself from feeling like a victim and to take charge of the situation.
It was a very positive experience and one that we would repeat should we need it!

Inger has been working with my 15 yr old son with EFT for 2 sets of sessions. Her support, wisdom and patience has been invaluable – not only to my son but to me as a very anxious parent.
My son presented with extreme anxiety, intrusive thoughts and nervous behaviour – which showed itself in various ways.
Inger was both professional, extremely compassionate and was able to get onto his wave length – which to a teenager is crucial in gaining trust and therefore getting to the root causes.
The EFT was powerful in bringing to the surface painful experiences – which he and Inger worked on in a safe and trusting manner – and he always felt ‘great’ and energised yet relaxed after each session.
Inger and I discussed that he still had more to do after one set of sessions and I am so glad we did because he is so much better for it.
He has grown in confidence, has learnt to “tap” when he feels anxious and he knows it works. It has empowered him to deal with life better and he is happier and calmer in himself, which I did not think possible a year ago.
As a parent, I see life as a teenager so much harder than it was for me; pressures to behave/look a certain way and pressure at school is huge. I think EFT and homeopathy are invaluable in helping our children to gain confidence in themselves and to understand certain behaviours and therefore making the transition into adulthood a healthier one.
I would recommend Inger and her natural approach to any troubled teen and to his/her parent.

Before my daughter saw Inger she had no confidence in herself or her abilities. Socially she was holding herself back as she had a fear of being rejected. She got into complicated dynamics in various friendship groups and many of these problems had manifested because of previous negative experiences at school. All these things I knew would be holding her back now that she was leaving school.
I have seen many changes since EFT: A wisdom around friendship groups, she now has a really positive attitude towards herself and her abilities.She is much happier at home, at college and socially when she is with others.
She has a more ‘go grab it attitude” – knowing that things may not work out in her favour – but she is willing to give it a go anyway – a massive step for a 17 yr old who previously would be happier to sit in the shadows.
She uses the techniques that Inger has taught her in stressful/difficult situations – which she finds really beneficial – she found that when discussing issues with Inger – Inger was able to put into words her feeling exactly, this helped her enormously and she would recommend EFT to all other young people. Thank you Inger!

Thank you for your understanding manner. My daughter says you know and say exactly what she is feeling..which is spot on. A real skill!
V.N. mother of S.T. aged 15
My daughter has always been a worrier and as she reached her teens this was impacting negatively on her life. Not only was she worrying a great deal of what other people thought of her, she was also too scared of upsetting others to speak out for her own good.
As a result of working with Inger I have noticed a real change in how my daughter reacts to certain situations and she has grown dramatically in confidence.
I was delighted with how my daughter tackled a situation recently. She was extremely grown up in her actions and did not worry about what others thought and appeared to overcome a situation that would have caused huge embarrassment previously. This time she just got on with it.
She has also become more proactive in saying what she wants in certain situations and speaking up more. She really has gained in confidence and I feel relieved that she can now ask for help.
N.S. mother of D.S. aged 15
Thank you for all your hard work with my daughter. Her progression emotionally since coming to sessions with you has been massive and I am so appreciate of the part you have taken in her development during a difficult time. I thoroughly recommend you (and often do) as a wonderful practitioner who has really made a difference. Thank you.

And this from the young people:
“Before I went to see Inger, I struggled with controlling my rage and anxiousness at the dinner table.
During my time with Inger I learnt how to notice what I was feeling, and learnt ways in which to make me calmer and less aware of the sounds people were making. Although I still struggle mildly with this issue but now I can use the technique she taught me, and I can control myself, and I have gotten a lot better. I have also felt better around my family, this experience helped me alot. It was nice to share my issues and have someone to talk to. Overall it was a massive help seeing Inger and I enjoyed it alot. So thank you very much!!”
Reflecting on my time with Inger the most important aspects are that I have come through so much stronger and I have so much more understanding of myself and my situation.
My confidence has improved and I feel better in myself.
Now when a test is sprung on me I feel no worries and I am able to stay calm.
I have got over the trauma, it doesn’t pop into my head all the time and I am not taking time off school to make sure she is well.
Before my sessions with Inger I was in a deep depression. My whole body was filled with anxiety. Having suffered from depression and anxiety before, I was extremely negative and couldn’t see a way to recovery. It was a very frightening time in my life.
When I first arrived at Inger’s practice, I was a complete mess. Since working with Inger and the powerful tool that is EFT (tapping), I feel 100 times better.
For one hour a week I found a space of warmth, comfort and trust. Inger really nurtures the individual and their spirit. She helped me confront my pain.
We worked on my severe emotional and physical anxiety. Before I wasn’t sleeping and I couldn’t relax. My whole body was tense, a huge knot of anxiety.
On one memorable session, whilst tapping, I felt my whole body relax for the first time in a year. I cried and laughed with relief.
I can’t really express my gratitude for this because no words would really reach it, but I can say just how much better I feel. Since I have been able to use the techniques I have learnt to calm my anxiety and feel better about myself.
With time, talk and tapping, Inger has taught me to trust my emotions, to let myself feel them and most importantly to love myself.
I really appreciate the therapeutic tool that is EFT and I can honestly say I don’t know where I’d be now without Inger’s help and guidance.
