Who am I?

I am Barb Starke and I live rurally in Auckland. I am a wife and a Mum, with two adult sons and a daughter-in-law, one lovely Labrador and four chooks. I am a business woman, an entrepreneur, an EFT Practitioner and a Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner.

What led me to tapping?

A few years ago my life was a real struggle and I was facing a lot of loss.  My eldest son was heading off on his OE, my youngest venturing to university, and my Dad in his late seventies had deteriorating health and we were facing the end of his life.  My husband was changing jobs and I had an old dog with health issues that I just couldn’t face putting down.  I was tired all the time, I was constantly suffering from flus, colds and allergies and my gut was on fire. I knew I needed a hand to work through all of this.

They say and I believe it is true that when you need help it appears.

Browsing the internet I came across tapping and gave it a go. I started with scripted tapping routines over the internet and had a level of success which blew me away.  This was powerful and I wanted to experience it first hand, so I found a practitioner, had some coaching and went on to do my training.

It is my desire to walk alongside and help others find their pathways. If you’re ready, let me equip you with tools to help you through your journey.


What has my life been?

  • I have experienced loss and the ensuing grief: of friends, family, pets, relationships and life desires.
  • I have experienced the juggles of modern day life: relationships, children, work and extended family.
  • I have experienced the empty nest syndrome: a time of reassessment and the sensation of what do I do now?
  • I understand the effects of poor relationships on adults and on children, on their health and life views and learning abilities.
  • I understand the effect of addictions, drugs and alcohol.
  • I have given up smoking, become an emotional eater and then worked on losing the extra weight.
  • I have experienced financial hardship and good times.
  • I have experienced the loss of independence and choice through injury.
  • I have worked in big business, and in small business, I have run my own businesses, I have been an employee.
  • I have walked alongside many people with their own problems and grievances.
  • I have experienced freedom from my stuck emotions and the ensuing happiness and desire to get up and get cracking in life, to look for new adventures and to be happy in my own skin.
