Hi Everyone,

Read how Judy Whitcraft, in 20 minutes, neutralized a young lady's thunderstorm phobia. After the session Judy says, "About a week later, during a thunderstorm in our area, I called their home. Ashley answered the phone. I asked her what she was doing. She said, "Baking cookies." I said, "You are in the kitchen, baking cookies, during this thunderstorm?" She answered, 'Yes'."

Hugs, Gary

Fourteen year old Ashley had been terrorized by thunderstorms since she was small. Even if it was just raining, she would go to the basement. If her parents were gone, she would call them and keep them on the phone until they got home. Thunderstorms during the night would wake her up, and she would scream until her parents came in her room and took her to sleep with them the rest of the night. She wouldn't leave her room by herself, as she was afraid something was going to get her.

One afternoon, I worked with Ashley for 20 minutes on her intense fear of storms.

Even though the sound of rain scares me, I'm a good kid anyway.

Even though I think the thunder is going to get me, I'm an awesome kid.

Even though I panic when it rains, I know it is just water, and I choose to feel safe.

We did several rounds while testing the intensity on a scale of 0 to 10, in her imagination, until she got it down to 0.

About a week later, during a thunderstorm in our area, I called their home. Ashley answered the phone. I asked her what she was doing. She said, "Baking cookies." I said, "You are in the kitchen, baking cookies, during this thunderstorm?" She answered, "Yes."

A few weeks after that, Ashley was a leader at a Girl Scout event outdoors in a camping situation. Inclement weather appeared, complete with tornado warnings and the sirens going off. When the storm had passed, Ashley called her mother to let her know everyone was all right and not to worry. When her mother asked her how she did during the storm, Ashley reported that she had been busy keeping the younger girls safe and calm. This is a complete shift in how she would have previously reacted.

That was three years ago, and Ashley is still calm when it rains and thunders, and now sleeps calmly through thunderstorms in her own bed.

The family is very grateful.

Respectfully submitted,

Judy Whitcraft  EFT-ADV
