When Melanie came to see me she had a fear of thunderstorms that had started when she was a child. Whenever she heard thunder she would feel extremely anxious, shaky, and tearful until the storm had passed. As an adult this could be embarrassing. For example, just a few years ago she had people over to visit during a big storm and tears kept streaming down her cheeks. When she heard about tapping, she was excited to see if it could work for this life-long fear.
