You are smart, self-aware, and successful in many areas of life. But you’re stuck. Maybe you’ve experienced a big change, and don’t know how to move forward. Maybe you’re getting stopped by limiting beliefs about yourself, or heartaches from the past. You don’t know how to get unstuck, or you would have done it by now. You’ve probably tried in many different ways.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques, or tapping) is a simple self-help tool that can help you get unstuck. It can help you free yourself from the things that limit you. Now verified in over 100 research studies, EFT can be helpful for a wide variety of personal issues.
You will learn to gently tap on energy points on your body, while verbalizing something that is bothering you. This, along with a statement of acceptance, has the effect of softening or neutralizing the things that bother us.
Susan combines EFT with coaching to help you get through the stuck places, freeing you to move toward the fullest expression of yourself.
I raised five daughters and taught kindergarten for many years. When my 30 year marriage ended abruptly, I found myself staring in to the abyss of my future. "What's next?" I wondered. Fearful and shaken to my core, I sought support from others: therapy, life coaching, books, classes, workshops, retreats, massage, mindfulness, friends, family and music. I could not have done it alone. Part of my answer to "What's next?" was becoming a Certified Life Coach. A few years later, I discovered EFT, and trained as an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner. It is my honor and privilege these days, to support others as they create lives of meaning, peace and freedom.
I hold a Master's Degree in Confluent Education from the University of California, Santa Barbara. I studied Life Coaching through the Institute for Life Coaching Training in Ohio, and am a Board Certified Coach through the Center for Credentialing and Education. I am also an Accredited Certified EFT Practitioner through EFT International.
Emotional Freedom Techniques, or "Tapping," is an easy-to-learn, gentle tool for releasing stress and difficult emotions. I guide you as you gently tap on energy points (acupuncture points) on your body, while focusing on something that bothers you. This combination of tapping and talking creates, for most people, the ability to transform and release the things that bother you. And, once you learn it, you can do it on your own, whenever you need it! Check out for more.
Choose EFT if you have specific issues you want to release or clear.
We work together to imagine and create your version of "What's next?" I guide you through a four-step process, weaving in EFT as needed to help release limiting beliefs and stuck places.
The Sitch: What's happening now?
The Dream: Where do you want to be?
The Dragons: What gets in your way?
The Road Ahead: How do you move forward and keep going?
Choose life coaching if you want support in moving forward. EFT will be included as needed.
Group tapping is a great way to experience tapping! We tap together for 35 minutes on issues that members of the group bring. It's fascinating how our issues tend to overlap and intersect, and how the power of the group enhances the tapping.
Currently, there are two ongoing groups. "Tapping for Calm" on Wednesdays at 12:30 p.m. CT, and "Sunday Evening Singles," at 6:30 p.m. CT. Both are drop in groups-; no need to commit to attending every week. Email me if you'd like to attend.
I also offer "Intro to EFT" sessions for existing groups that would like to try it. Email me at lifecoachsusantemple.com for more info.

I had the pleasure of having EFT sessions with Susan. I can't say enough about her sensitivity and thoughtfulness. It has made such a difference in my life. I was able to overcome deep barriers that I have lived with from childhood. I feel set free from them now. Which in turn gives me the ability to live live a happier life!

EFT tapping with Susan has made such a difference for me! It is a simple, easy-to-learn tool to help identify and neutralize thought patterns and emotions that may be affecting your life in negative ways. Susan made me feel comfortable and accepted and brought much wisdom and knowledge as a Life Coach to our sessions together. I have learned to listen to my body’s wisdom and have learned so much about identifying and processing my emotions. Now I feel I know how to claim my power with an ongoing practice as I learn new things about myself.

With the heaviness of this pandemic all around and unending time at home, my mind went all foggy and dull. I’ve been working on a project that I love, but was having a hard time making progress. In an individual session, Susan listened to me, named several aspects of what was up for me, and addressed them one by one. Amazingly, with the very first set of tapping and affirmations, I began to feel lighter in every way - physically, emotionally, energetically so much lighter, I was astonished! As we continued, the experience deepened and I felt the fogginess that had seemed in me or part of me, was now not me, but something separate and away. To finish, Susan had me find an image to use going forward and we worked with that – dynamic and meaningful. Now day by day, my energy does indeed continue clear. I am doing my work with more ease and having way more fun with it!

Susan helped me to find paths in my own life to take, and helped identify the tools needed to overcome the scary and fearful moments. She guided me and did not tell me what to do. She reminded me of my goodness and capabilities through acknowledgements. I have more peace of mind. I know that I am a work in progress and that I am not alone and that I have support.

Tapping for Kids
Give your child or teenager a stress-relief tool
Most kids learn EFT easily, which is wonderful, because once they learn it, they have a self-help tool at their fingertips for the rest of their lives. EFT can be especially helpful for fears, worries, negative self-talk, building confidence, and school stress. Sessions are short, just 30 minutes on Zoom, and parents or another responsible adult are invited to tap along with us. Depending on your child's age, you may need to be available for every session.
Susan can also provide tapping instruction for groups of children.
