It took life coach Pam Robinson longer than a decade to amass the life-changing techniques she deploys today at Focus on Your Success. Though the transformations she triggers are often visible, the work she does is internal, with methods such as guided imagery and the emotional-freedom technique (EFT). Whereas guided imagery pairs positive affirmations with gradual relaxation in an effort to combat a negative attitude, EFT uses a blend of acupressure and verbal therapy to dispel negative emotions and the negative behaviors that accompany them (such as smoking or overeating). EFT also helps lessen stress.
