Kind Words

A few clients kindly shared some thoughts about the way we worked together.


About the course Feeling Comfortable with Marketing and Visibility by using EFT Tapping
with George Kao

I’ve believed for a while that it must be possible to be sensitive and successful, but getting my emotional brain to know this… to feel safe enough to put myself into the marketplace… is a whole other thing. The voice and teaching style in this course is like a balm and compass for my nervous system. Liesel is a sensitive success whisperer!

I love how Liesel continues to learn and expand her offerings and that she is always sensitive and compassionate to other’s experiences. I also so appreciate her understanding of introverts and that I never have to feel badly if I don’t feel like talking or sharing but also that she makes it safe if you want to.

Vicki BH

This workshop was just wonderful! I enjoyed being able to get in touch with my feelings through drawing, and then using that awareness to go through the tapping. Bringing in another aspect of awareness made the tapping even more effective.

Bowled over by group healings

I have been bowled over by your group healings. I wanted to experience it and love it. Your care and empathy shines through even in a group scenario.

Sonyan White

Tender, caring approach and true empathy for the issue

This class is SO helpful to those of us who struggle with this sensitive issue. Liesel’s tender, caring approach and true empathy for the issue allows for deep healing to occur, even while in a group format. Her sensitivity to others shines through and makes the experience feel safe, comfortable and doable. Loved it.

Deborah Sicignano

I’ve been struggling to get started on an important project for a while now, and I needed some outside help! Instead of the usual feeling of this big mountain I HAVE to do, I left the class feeling excited about it. I could also see the next steps I needed to take. It’s a few days after the workshop, and I’m delighted to say that I did some brainstorming on my project and finally have the clarity that was missing for so long. Thanks Liesel!!!!

EFT and Coaching Sessions

A client who was feeling burdened by responsibility

After our last session there was a huge shift. Before that, I was in a ball of depression. Having that session and shift cracked me out of that ball so I could start picking up the pieces. I didn’t know where to start before the session.

I have tears of joy now! I can’t believe it. I have not had any tears for months – not happy tears, not sad tears. Thank you so much, the sessions have helped me so much.

Incredible relief

Thank you Liesel for sharing your knowledge in your online class “Take the Reluctance Out of Visibility”.

Understanding how my body reacts when I just think of showing up really puts things in perspective for me. Then tapping down the intensity of my emotions that are attached to this gave me incredible relief and helped me to understand what is blocking me. I look forward to your next class!

Made me feel more positive and value myself more…

The session was wonderful. A good way to explore my current situation and have a bit more clarity about moving forward from here.

Recently I’ve been stuck in a fog, and it has sometimes been a struggle to see positives, when just trying to ‘be’ and heal some of the bad experiences from the past few months and work through the emotional flashbacks. It was good to talk about and remind myself about some of my innate strengths, notably relating to how I work with students, and help them to develop as a whole, not only in terms of their English. Talking about them brought about a different energy in me, and made me feel more positive and value myself more.

It was great to talk with you again, and benefit from your warm, loving kindness.

A sensitive person from Vietnam

It helped me turn things around.

So much has changed in my life since I enrolled in the Self Care for Busy People course. I was already going through a tough transition after a sudden breakup and a near layoff at work. But the tools I learned and the tapping I did while I was in this course really helped me turn things around.

I am so pleased with the positive turn my life has taken now that I have taken the time out of my busy schedule for Liesel’s Self Care program! The live tapping session we did during the course really helped me revise my mindset. I was struggling both personally and professionally, but the tapping really changed the energy I was creating.

Now I’m doing work that I love and that I’m appreciated for doing! My job is secure and my personal life is much more fulfilling now that I am willing to stand up for myself and say ‘No’ in a gentle, loving way.

I’m filled with excitement…. I trust myself a whole lot more!

WOW!! I feel like super woman. Like I can take on the world. The happiness I longed to feel, is now pulsating through every cell in my body. The world seems so full of love and possibility and this amazing breakthrough cannot fully be put into words. I’m filled with excitement and can’t wait to to out and play fully in life.

Later the same day:
I had to train 2 psychology honours students. I am so glad to say that at the end of the shift they both thanked me for how much they learned and how differently I gave advice and solutions. I feel soooo good about myself and trust myself a whole lot more!

Step 2 Success

Understood and honored my need for more than just a questioning coach

I liked the way you guided me into my action steps, and the way that when you reflected some of the stuff I said you used a different phrase or word which really resonated with me, I could fully take it on board and make it my own. I liked that you understood  and honored my need for more than just a questioning coach, yet you always brought us back to the framework of what’s important for this session.  And I really liked your summary at the end which confirmed not just your understanding but allowed me to confirm my own understanding of what we had achieved. I really found it immensely valuable Liesel, thank you so much!!

Life changing session…

I’ve been meaning to get in touch for a looong time now! Just to say thank you for the life changing session that you did with me a few years ago! It has opened so many doors and uncovered so many new possibilities that I am deeply grateful! I feel like everything became possible for me from that one Matrix Reimprinting session with you. Thanks again for being a part of my journey to discovering my authentic self, I will never forget your gentle kindness and support!

I wanted say thank you for your support on my ​path of​ figuring it out and now sharing my work with the world! It is such a joy writing this having finally launched my website with no fear! It is strange in the way that an unexpected new freedom can feel deeply refreshing and miraculous.

Your support, guidance, teachings and love made all the difference!

Janine Ferreira, Intuitive Healer

I can look after myself and my loved ones…

Before I worked with Liesel, I felt overwhelmed and like there were too many demands on me. For example, on two particular days, I’d booked too many work appointments and I knew that I’d come home really tired, not eat properly and get irritable with my husband.

Liesel worked with me, and the changes she helped me make, meant that the days I’d been dreading worked-out really well! So now I know what to do when I feel like that again, so that I can look after myself, which means I can take care of the loved ones and tasks in my life.

Your Sea-Change Life

Difficult and life threatening

Anger, regret, fear and a feeling of conflict with myself were the main issues Liesel help me resolve or come to terms with. Liesel helped me deal with my past and current emotions which has enabled me to become a better husband, son, friend, worker and boss.

My path to Liesel was difficult and life threatening but I would not change any of it as she has helped me find a peace and happiness I did not know was available to all of us.

Thank you Liesel


I have to say THANK YOU sooo much for the awesome session yesterday! As much as I wanted to believe that something so simple could make such a profound change, the logical part of me just couldn’t accept that something so simple could really do anything.

However, towards the end of it, I actually felt like I had come out of a deep yoga session – I was so relaxed, so comfortable with everything – it was a mindblowing experience! I feel light, like I’m floating on a cloud; I supposed that’s because I finally released some deep seated feelings that I didn’t even realize was affecting me 🙂

Thank you soooo much once again. May your light spread to every soul in need of healing :-)))


Strengths Sessions


It gets to be easy when we use our strengths

Thanks so much for the session.  I now realise that when I’m really using my strengths to lead with, my authentic self and gifts, I’m not going to be afraid of being seen.

My most important takeaway is that it gets to be easy when we are using our strengths.  We don’t even notice what comes easily to us, simply because it’s so natural.  It was very helpful to see how my Connectedness and Strategic/Ideation can war with each other and how to use them in tandem instead.

I am glad that I did all 34 strengths version because I used to feel down about how inconsistent and undisciplined I feel.  Seeing that they are way on the bottom of my list helps.  I can feel like an imposter —  “Who am I to give biz advice when I’m not able to implement it for myself’?” But, that’s not my strength at all! Others can still really benefit from what I can offer easily and effortlessly.  And how much more fun is that than trying to slog through making myself do things?!?

I’m now excited to offer ‘biz playdates’ to explore how I can serve others in a fun and useful way.

I have so much more JOY and INSPIRATION around my work right now!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Ursa Barnes

Your Strengthsfinder coaching session gave me the insight to see what strengths I was using and how they come together to create something that is powerful, unique and of great value when applied in the appropriate place.The coaching has given me the ability to understand more analytically what is me. I am clear on where and how to apply it. I can communicate better what I can bring to a situation. The Strengthsfinder coaching session showed me how unique I am. And I can use that when I feel “smaller than” to help me back to “equal to”.

I had already been aware that some “work” feels hard and some feels easier. I am now clear that it feels easy when it is using my top strengths.

Strengthsfinder is a fabulously valuable tool. No matter how good a tool is, its real value is in how it is used. Liesel has a gift for working with Strengthsfinder, just as I know she has a gift for EFT. She releases its power.

Alison Gitelson

I have recently used the Gallup StrengthsFinder test and have discussed the results in depth with Liesel Teversham. I found the process entirely rewarding. I felt it was a novel approach to understanding oneself. For once I felt that here was a tool that spoke to me and helped me define where I am going in life even in my later fifties! Defining ones talents / strengths intrinsically makes much more sense to me than many of the alternative approaches I have been subjected to throughout my career. As a more mature business person, I found that there was still a lot for me to learn about myself.Identifying my talents / strengths has given me an energy boost. I am busy reinventing myself and finding alternative ways to earn a living whilst enjoying myself during the process. Before entering the process I was confused and dispirited with no idea on how to make money.

I no longer feel guilty that I need to be a “renaissance man” and be competent in all possible talent areas. This has helped me to understand that far more can be achieved by concentrating on my talents and strengths rather than trying to do everything myself. Identifying partners with skills not in my own talent make-up is a far more effective way of managing and playing to my strengths!

Understanding my leading talents as well as those that are a drain on me has helped me to understand past corporate failings and to put these into perspective. I now understand that what I was trying to do was not even close to a fit for me and not a personal failure. It is no wonder that I developed serious health problems!”

Mike Shorten, Kyalami, 2015

This morning’s Strengths session was truly inspiring. I really enjoyed finding a new perspective on who I am and how to accept myself and to grow myself with the new knowledge about myself. The insight you gave me about my strengths has opened a new understanding about myself and the many possibilities revealed to me in nurturing my strengths. The session was very positive and helpful and I loved the gentle, caring way you related to me. I am so looking forward to the next session.

Lindsey Sanderson, Heanertsburg

Unusual depth of understanding

Working with Liesel brought me to tears in a good way. She has an unusual depth of understanding and is a supportive, humble and straight-shooting coach. She was able to help me get to the core of my strengths and help me to get back on track with my individual purpose, in a way that floored me. She is a light-filled change agent and I totally love this woman!
