”Part of my style is watching practitioners attempt to do FI “moves” based on their current understanding of a lesson. Then, I give verbal cues until the practitioner’s technique and understanding improves.  An “aha” moment becomes apparent to the person on the table, to the practitioner, and to observers. A practitioner’s handling skills and understanding improve in an organic way and this is better than watching and imitating a demonstration. The benefit of this style of coaching is that learned skills are transferable to other situations.   

”I like to help people transfer the AY ATM lessons into FI lessons — either by technique coaching or by applying basic principles of the method.”
