My show is designed to give you the information that you can use to be the best you can be! We will provide tools, techniques, and knowledge that will educate and empower you. While we will cover a variety of topics, our primary focus will be on Emotional Freedom Technique, or Tapping, and how it can make a profound difference in money, relationships, weight loss and general well-being. It can offer rapid help with many of the most commonly experienced problems in life, anxiety, depression, stress and fear. Our experts are clinicians who have the ability to speak to people in a way they can understand and make use of right away. We will share newer ideas in practical psychology that often allow us to cut to the heart of the matter and make a real difference in people’s lives.

She is able to help people understand those issues and then find solutions that address the limiting beliefs they might have and offer practical strategies to manage their money. Niina loves people more than money and that philosophy shines through her conversation! View Guest page
