Hands-On Practitioners…
Get Clients. Feel Like Yourself.

You just need a proven process that takes you from overwhelm to clarity, one step at a time.


It’s not an exaggeration to say that 100% of my first-time clients take whatever recommendation I make. It just goes to show what’s possible when you have tools like the Heart-to-Heart program, a support network and someone who knows what you need to move forward.

Nancy Harden, Feldenkrais Practitioner, USA

I have a sense of moving toward self-respect in my work, and also respecting that I really want to make a living. I haven’t really treated it like that before.

Kristine Jensen-Smith, Intuitive and Certified Practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu, USA

Can I Help You?

If you’re like practitioners who get great results with me…

  • You aren’t clear about how to build your practice.
  • You’re overwhelmed by being self-employed.
  • You give a lot of “first sessions” but don’t have enough long-term, committed clients.
  • Your schedule may be full, but you’re exhausted and you still can’t afford a vacation.
  • You’re fed up, something has to change and you’re ready to take action.

Imagine What It Will Be Like, When You Know How To…

Claim the Powerful Innate Strengths that Support You in Every Part of Your Business

When you focus on developing your unique business strengths, you have more energy, more clarity, more focus and far less overwhelm. And when you feel authentic, you stop coming across as pushy or salesy; strangers are more likely to become clients because you feel confident about how you can help them.

Connect with New Clients and Book Paid Consultations with Them

A paid consultation establishes your value and gives both of you the space to explore whether you’re a good fit for working together…it’s an essential step in building a great practice. Imagine talking with someone you can help and without missing a beat, you decide together to take the next step! I’ll show you what to say, why you you need to say it, and how to make it feel like you–so that you can say it.

Help Clients Commit to Working with You Long Enough to Get the Results They Want

It’s time to stop auditioning for clients in first sessions. Once you’ve mastered the Heart-to-Heart Consultation, you’ll…

  • Give people the exact information they need to make a commitment to their own well-being.
  • Stop being overwhelmed in your first session with a new client.
  • Address their concerns and objections with compassion, not panic.
  • State your fee with confidence.
  • Make it easy for prospects to understand why they should work with you long enough to get the results they want.

How It Works…

The Heart-to-Heart Consultation meets the needs of practitioners like you… people who know their work offers unparalleled transformation, but who struggle to be seen for the value they bring their clients.

Click each “down-arrow” to open more information:

You’ll take 2 assessments backed by more than 30 years of research. They pinpoint your strengths and help you understand how to tailor everything we cover in this training so that it feels just like you. That vastly increases the likelihood that you will use what you learn when you are with a potential client.

Many colleagues have been amazed—both because the results describe how they feel about themselves, and because they finally feel like it’s okay to relax into being the practitioner they were meant to be, without pretense.

“I was gobsmacked that the assessments were so accurate… and it was fun to do! It has happened so rarely in my life… that something has fit so perfectly, and because these assessments are from a place a strength, they were very affirming…things like my being a non-linear thinker were put in a positive light.”  Maggie Miles, Feldenkrais Practitioner Anat Baniel Practitioner, USA

Instead of micro-managing what you say to clients, I’ll give you the meta-view of the results you’re after at every stage of your consultation. That means you’ll discover your own way of making client commitment conversations easy and natural.

You’ll learn basic skills, then adjust them to fit who you are, rather than memorizing the exact words you’re supposed to say because they worked for me.

Every day, you’ll practice new skills that you’ll actually use, and your ability will increase steadily.

“I’m seeing myself in an entirely different way. Before I saw myself as somebody who helped people, but now, I’m thinking about myself as a competent person that people should want to be around!”  Nancy Norwood, Feldenkrais Practitioner, USA

I know that practitioners often have a love-hate relationship with computers and the internet, so I’ve spent the time and money it takes to create an online learning environment that’s virtually foolproof. Every module contains everything you need for success… audios, videos, handouts, downloads… all clearly marked, easily accessed and organized so you always know exactly where you are, what you’ve done and what’s next.

I want you to have an easy experience getting the help you need without the technical challenges you don’t need!

I want you to succeed because it’s time for your clients to stop hurting… and time for you to stop hurting, too.

“I am really, really impressed with this whole program. It shows years of work, it shows genius in the approach, it’s well-put together. Seriously, I’ve been impressed with this since I’ve been looking at it, and … it’s turning out even better than I thought it would be!” Ned Breschel, Associate Professor of Sociology, ABM Practitioner, USA

And In Addition, Your Learning Is…


Our learning portal is already loaded and ready to go, so you can start as soon as you register. Work through the modules at your own convenience, using the handouts, audios, videos, scripts and actual client conversations.


You’ll be blown away by all the ways you are supported! With practice sessions, Q&A calls, celebrations and help from other practitioners who are on the same path you’re on, you won’t fall through the cracks unless you want to!


Our practice calls give you the opportunity to use what you’re learning in a safe environment with other practitioners. You’ll find that practice is the key to making your new skills feel easy and natural, not sleazy or manipulative.

Heart-to-Heart has changed everything — from how I advertise and write my newsletter to how I talk to clients and work with them. I can really stay focused on the person now, because I never have to sell. There’s so much to this, on so many different layers — it changed my life!

I’ve more than doubled my income. I focus better, get better results, and have an easier time working.

Allison Rapp,
Creator of The Heart-to-Heart Consultation

When I trained with Moshe Feldenkrais in the 1970’s, it never occurred to me that I would find it hard to earn a living because I knew I had extremely valuable skills.

So… I’ve been a hands-on practitioner for 35 years. And while I love what I do, I struggled for 30 years to make my business viable because I didn’t know how to help people see the value of how I could help them.

In 2010, I built my own practice from near zero clients into one where more than 90% of the people who came to me for the first time committed to a minimum of 10 sessions with me. When I realized how much practitioners needed what I had learned and developed for myself, I knew it was time to make a difficult choice between two things I loved doing–helping the public or helping practitioners.

To bring Heart-to-Heart to its current form, I spent years absorbing business training, and countless hours in gaining practical experience. I am one of a handful of certified Perceptual Style® coaches and am in the first cohort of Jeffrey van Dyk’s coach certification.

Now I devote full-time to practitioners, so that I can continue to learn and grow as a business coach, and bring you the very best of practices, tailored in a way that works for who you are.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click the “down-arrows” to open the answers:

A: If you are a hands-on practitioner and you need clients, this course was designed especially for you.

What do your heart and your gut tell you?

Hands-on practitioners are deep thinkers who typically like to consider every aspect of every situation. Your heart and gut don’t speak in words, but they’re loud and clear — and you can hear them if you listen carefully.

Heart-to-Heart is not for you if:

  • you don’t want to change what you are doing.
  • you have no confidence that you can learn something new.
  • you are not willing to let go of limiting beliefs.
  • you want the results without putting in the work.

Heart-to-Heart is a bad choice for you if you don’t like me, my voice, the way I present myself, my jokes, or anything else about me that’s serious enough to get in your way. While you are not going become me, I will be the first person to tell you that my personality permeates this course. I wrote every word, I am on all the calls, I am involved in every aspect of it.

If you feel hesitation in talking to me about your business and taking what happens in that conversation seriously–regardless of how much fun we have–please do not register for this program.

A: Take advantage of the payment plan!

The time to invest in any program is when you need the help it offers.

It’s easy to imagine you can wait until you have more clients… but if you had enough clients, you wouldn’t want or need this program.

When practitioners really want to take Heart-to-Heart and are conflicted about the cost, I ask them to consider these questions:

  • How is waiting going to help you OR the people who need you?
  • Most practitioners can pay for this course if just 1 or 2 NEW committed clients. How many new clients would pay for your tuition? Do you believe you can change what you’re doing so you can get those clients?
  • What’s the cost of having a practice that doesn’t fulfill you, and of not having a practice that does fulfill you?
A: Everyone needs more training. But if you don’t have enough clients, more training isn’t going to help you get them.

One of the biggest mistakes practitioners make is taking more training that they can’t fully use or embed in their skill set because they don’t have enough clients.

Unless you are already very experienced and are looking at specific training to move you forward in very clear ways, the fact that you feel like you need more experience is probably an indicator that you have not worked enough because you don’t have enough clients.

The quickest way to get more clients, is to focus on learning how to get them.

Practitioner training does not teach that. Business training does. Business training focused on your particular needs is the best kind of training you can take.


A: No.

I don’t know of another program that teaches these skills, in this depth, designed specifically for hands-on practitioners, BY a hands-on practitioner.

Heart-to-Heart begins with discovering and developing your own innate strengths, so that everything you do feels natural and easy. No other client attraction program does this.

Other programs speak to different people, with different needs and challenges. Other programs skim the surface or give you templates you need to follow to get the results. Other programs have hundreds of participants on every call, and offer you very little chance of being heard.

Cobbling together resources from a variety of different places doesn’t give you a cohesive program. I know that you would not recommend any of your clients see 5 different hands-on practitioners at the same time because it would be confusing. This is exactly the same.

You wouldn’t have taken advantage of a bunch of free online experiences of your modality instead of taking a training, would you? It’s no different with business training. As a self-employed person, you’ve got two parts to your business: the part you love doing, and the part you have probably been avoiding. You can’t get at the heart of what you need with random free resources.

And here’s a very big secret about what’s FREE. It’s concept, theory, outline. It’s all true, but it’s not implementation. Without help implementing, there’s very little chance of getting the results people are talking about.

A. Believe me, I understand.

Hands-on practitioners like learning face-to-face — it’s how you learned your skills, and how you help your clients.

Teaching online lets me help more practitioners and keep the cost down. Our online community is spread most of the way around the world — from the Pacific Rim through North America to Europe. Our calls and private chat group can keep you connected. We have regular contact time on group calls over a service that costs you nothing. You can stay connected as much as you like.

Besides, it takes time for this stuff to sink in. There’s just no way I could offer it all in person without raising the price so high that no one would be able to afford it.

On the bright side, I do everything I can to make our connection feel like we’re in the same room.

A: Yes!

I’d be happy to talk with you about what you’re looking for, and to see if we’re a fit. To schedule a complimentary call, click here.

A #1. If your quandary is about the difference in price, consult your gut-brain and your heart-brain.

Most people know whether or not they will be able to follow through without support, but the difference in cost can throw a spanner into the works.

Inner voices connected to fear speak loudly about money and value, and they tend to drown out the quieter wisdom voices that try to help you see where your true success lies, and what you need to do to achieve it.

If you’re having trouble hearing those voices, speak kindly and respectfully to your louder voices. Ask them to listen for a bit and make room for other voices to be heard. Ask them what they are trying to do for you, what they are afraid of, and how you could ensure that their worst fears don’t become reality. Ask them what conditions would have to true, in order for you to proceed with their blessing.


A #2: If you truly don’t know whether you need support or can do it on your own, register for Heart-to-Heart Essentials.

During the time you are enrolled in this program, you will have access to some features of the full-support version and you will have an opportunity to upgrade if that feels like the right choice.

A: We should definitely stay in touch!

All the information on this page is true to the best of my knowledge. However, other people’s success is not a guarantee that you will experience the same results. Your return on any investment in a program designed to help you build your practice is dependent on many factors. It is not possible to guarantee — and I make no promises regarding — your specific results.

If your financial situation is such that the investment you are considering means that you will be unable to fulfill your financial responsibilities to yourself and others, this may be the wrong time for you to invest in your practice.
