Grief Counselor, Author & Speaker, Energy Psychology Specialist
Paula's latest book, Will The Pain Ever End?, will be out
That is the question so many of us ask ourselves when we are grieving the death of a loved one, the end of a relationship or some other great personal loss. When we don’t know what to do our pain can last years. People tell us, "Time heals all wounds," but no matter how much time passes, our feelings of sadness and emptiness don’t seem to fade. We try to keep busy, but end up running around aimlessly on automatic pilot, and sharing our feelings doesn’t seem to lessen the heartache.
Author Paula Shaw, CADC, DCEP wants everyone to know grief doesn't have to be a life sentence. Drawing upon more than 20 years of experience as an Energy Psychology Specialist, Reiki Master and Grief Counselor, Paula helps you understand your own grief experience, and empowers you to heal instead of waiting helplessly for things to change.
This book is a combination of informative articles and practical exercises you can use right away in your recovery process. As no two people are the same, Paula guides you through a variety of mind-body processes including breathing techniques, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), visualization, energy work, journaling and many other healing tools.
AND to help you move more easily through the healing process, you will also find the links to a collection of online videos Paula has made just for you, where she demonstrates the healing techniques you will learn in the book.

- An Empathic, Intuitive Nature Fostering Empowerment In Her Clients -
I have had an opportunity to work with Paula Shaw for the last four years. Paula's empathetic, intuitive nature along with her unique approach to grief resolution creates a powerful treatment modality successfully moving the patient through a sense of profound loss, toward understanding, acceptance and resolution. Many patients experience a sense of grief as they enter into a new phase of life such as menopause. With Paula's assistance; regret, remorse and sadness transform into a state of empowerment.

Paula Shaw provides a roadmap that leads clients from the tears to the turning point of overcoming the paralysis, hopelessness, and despair of many kinds of loss, and finally to the triumph of finding a window to living life again. She draws on the processes that have come to be known under the umbrella term, Energy Psychology, to help her clients move the stagnant energy that can come from unrecognized grief into the active energy of life.

- The Work Is Nothing Short Of Miraculous -
I wanted to say that I have had a remarkable breakthrough. Last year, I began working with Paula Shaw, a pioneer in the emerging field of Energy Psychology. Paula uses various modalities, including Neuromuscular testing, to excavate and clear self-destructive beliefs from the subconscious mind. Then she helps the client re-pattern their beliefs by imbedding positive new beliefs in the subconscious mind. For me, this has been nothing short of miraculous.

- Skepticism Transformed Into Enthusiasm -
“Paula Shaw is absolutely remarkable in her ability to transform one’s perspective and energy. I needed to break the pattern of negative thoughts that had resulted from my grief over some large business decisions that went awry. However, I was extremely skeptical about the concept of working with an Energy Psychology counselor. Within 30 minutes of meeting her, Paula had transformed my skepticism into enthusiasm for working with her. She gave me simple, practical tools to help me focus and replace the negative thoughts with positive thinking. Paula helped me assess what I wanted and how to best achieve that in a way that was very workable for my style of thinking. She helped me identify what I am good at and what makes me motivated. Through this approach Paula helped me achieve an incredible epiphany which set me on the path for a new business that I am very excited about. In 4 sessions with Paula, I feel I transformed and achieved a sense of renewed energy, purpose and joy! Paula Shaw is truly gifted and I will recommend her to anyone.”

- Two Sessions Got Me Out Of Bed And Into The Office -
My work with Paula Shaw has been amazing. I was bed-ridded with depression over a break-up with a man I had loved for quite some time. In two sessions with Paula, the energy work we did had an unbelievable effect. I don't even think about him anymore. I am not even the same person. My attitude is unbelievably positive, all kinds of good things are happening because of it. I don't know; everything's changed. I am strong, I'm working on my business plan; it's as though I am someone else! Those 2 sessions changed my world they cleaned up the loss and everything else that was bothering me. I don't even talk like the same person! What a change, what a positive feeling...Thank you. I am truly free of my grief and depression.

- A Twenty Year Addiction Ended In Two Sessions -
I am writing to thank you for helping me to completely resolve my craving for coffee. After the first treatment, my craving was down to 2 or 3, and after the second treatment I was completely free of any craving at all. I had a cup of coffee once since then, but not because I craved it, just because I chose to have one. I was a little curious about how I would feel when preparing it and drinking it, and I am very happy to report that no cravings of any kind, no emotional response of any kind, was evident.
This is the first time in 20 years that I have successfully quit coffee with no cravings, and no fear that I will return to the addiction.
Thank you so much for your help.
Just an update on my coffee addiction. Since the session that you and I had in February 2008, I have remained completely non-addicted to coffee, and here we are in late September!!! I am thrilled, after having quit coffee at least 50 times unsuccessfully. I have only had three or four cups since February, usually in a social situation. I have absolutely no cravings. I can even keep it in the house available for guests without feeling tempted.
Thanks so much for helping me with that.
- She Got To The Core Issues and Helped Me Eliminate Them Giving Me The Life I Dreamed Was Possible But Couldn't Attain -
I truly believe that Paula Shaw has revolutionized traditional therapy. Her techniques have allowed me to heal physically, mentally and emotionally. I spent many years reading self-help books, working with a life coach as well as attending several empowerment seminars and none of them was effective in getting to the root of my personal inner dialog which was sabotaging my life and well being. With Paula I've not only identified those internal negative beliefs but efficiently healed from them, something other therapies fail to complete. I am finally able to live the life I knew was possible, filled with purpose, joy and abundance. Paula is a true treasure and I feel sublimely blessed to have her in my life.
