Welcome! Before we enter into a working relationship together, I want you to have sufficient information about the services I provide. Please understand that our work together is a collaborative effort to effect positive change in your life.
Training – I am a Certified EFT Master Practioner and Trainer, AMT; Certified Level 2 EFT Practitioner in the AAMET; Certified EFT Intermediate Practitioner and Weight Loss Coach through EFT Universe, and also certified in Matrix Reimprinting, Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, Spiritual Coaching and Group Coaching. I have completed the Foundations Training in Eden Energy Medicine. There is no licensure for these in the state of Connecticut.
Payment – Payment for in person sessions is by credit card, check or cash and is expected on the date of the service. Checks should be payable to Robin Friedman. For EFT or coaching calls or Skype sessions, I accept Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or I can send you an online credit card invoice, or check in the U.S. mail. Please pay when scheduling the call.
Cancellation Policy – I require at least 24 hours notification of cancellation.
Description of Services – My sessions typically last 50-90 minutes. During our first session, I interview you in order to get a clear understanding of the issue and symptoms created by the issue. If you have specified which modality you want, then that is how we will proceed. Otherwise, I will use the modality or combination of modalities that I feel is best suited for you. I will instantly stop any procedure if you are not comfortable. I am also reasonably available by phone or email to answer questions or clarify instructions in between sessions. Please ask me any questions about anything that happens in our work together. I’m always willing to discuss how and why I’m doing what I’m doing.
Confidentiality – Your experiences during our sessions together are strictly confidential. You may instruct me to release information to other health care practitioners, or I may be required to release information if subpoenaed or otherwise legally obligated such as in circumstances where there is clear and imminent danger to yourself or another person. I am required to report to the appropriate authorities if it appears you are a danger to yourself or someone else, or if I have reasonable cause to suspect abuse of a child, dependent adult, or developmentally disabled person. I may at times consult with other professionals. All consultations will be done in a manner as to protect your anonymity.
Termination - At any point in our therapeutic relationship I reserve the right to terminate the relationship if I believe that our work together is not productive. I might refer you to another practitioner who is better able to handle your unique needs. You may also terminate our relationship at any point and will only be obligated to pay for the sessions provided.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -Marianne Williamson
