The changes people can make to their lives and relationships once these techniques are learned is incredible. In one client's words, 'Tracey', "You have changed my life". When Karen asked her how she told her "I don't react to people now when they say things a little abrupt or confronting, I wonder the reason, then I use the eye patters and specific words and it just seems I take control of the conversation. People and family are just listening to me now and I haven't had one argument in forever, which is so interesting because before I learned this I was fighting and arguing almost every day with either my husband, kids or the challenging personalities at work ".
This is the type of change you all can make in your life.
