About Mary Ayers, PhD,

I’ve been in the human development field for over 30 years as a therapist, as a coach, workshop leader, speaker, and author. I want you to know that I haven’t always used EFT in my practice. In the early years my practice was primarily “talk therapy” and I specialized in working within a “evidence-based, solution-focused” philosophy. I got amazing results with my clients for many years.

The BUT is that people (myself included) were still experiencing what I call “Emotional Hijackings” – reactions that are triggered by things people say or events that happen. It’s that awful feeling that instead of you living life – life is living you!

Having been originally trained in TFT (Thought Field Therapy) in 1997 I knew something about “tapping” techniques but I used it only when I had someone come into my office with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome). To be honest, I didn’t think about using it for other things! It was quite by chance that I came across EFT and once I realized how easy it was to teach clients how to do the tapping to work on triggers outside of therapy I quickly started learning everything I could about it. Now I use it with ALL my clients. Has this changed the results my clients are getting – ABSOLUTELY! By combining a evidence-based and solution-focused practice model with the EFT, clients were reporting amazing results.

I’m honored to be a member of the progressive professionals that are combining “traditional” therapy/coaching approaches with cutting-edge energy practices. In addition to having my own private coaching practice, since 2004 I’ve had the awesome opportunity to have been a coach with the Anthony Robbins companies for over 5 years and was thrilled to bring EFT Master Carol Look to the company in the summer of 2007 to introduce the coaches to the power of EFT.
