How I use the HeartMath System
I am a HeartMath® Certified Trainer who provides HeartMath's Resilience Advantage™ program to business organizations, and also a HeartMath® Certified Coach providing HeartMath's Building Personal Resilience™ program to small and family business owners. The Quick Coherence® Technique was paramount in my swift recovery from PTSD due to a bad and expensive divorce. Had I known then what I know now, I could have saved $200,000+ in legal fees, and a year of therapy each for my daughters and myself. Today, I walk the HeartMath walk and talk the HeartMath talk, and very little triggers me - and I am able to process easily and efficiently what does. With HeartMath as my second nature "go to," I am energized and not drained in my work as a mediator, and I have abundant energy to pursue my life goals and dreams.
