What Students are Saying

“I was having problems dealing with my life partner’s constant overly-friendly contact with his ex-wife, with whom he had had a bitter divorce. I felt he was slowly leaving me. So, I decided to use See it! Say it! Zap it! that I learned from A Blueprint for Happy, Resilient Parents, Teachers & Kids. I zapped everything I could think of related to our issue. And what do you think happened in only ONE week? My energy and way of thinking changed, and so did his! We finally had an honest discussion. He apologized, and we now have our wonderful relationship back!”

Clare Y., Richmond, VA

“Jan helped me with the Zap method of dealing with difficult people. She taught me to See it, Say it, Zap it. It is amazing how well this works. I sort of compare it to blowing off the nuisance and not letting it bother me. A wonderful tool in this wild and wacky world.”

Kay K., Palm Harbor, FL
