Welcome to www.LindaJReed.com. This Disclaimer contains important information to share with you and for you to understand. Please be advised of the following:


The information contained on this website, including ideas, suggestions, techniques, methods, testimonials, videos, and other materials is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice. Transmission of the information presented on this website is not intended to create and receipt does not constitute any professional relationship between Linda Reed, as the single member of Linda J. Reed Coaching, LLC, and the visitor and should not be relied upon as coaching, medical, psychological, or other professional advice of any kind or nature.


By viewing this website you will be introduced to information about the Daring Way™, a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston’s Graduate School of Social Work. The Daring Way process is designed to explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness using metaphor, story-telling, and experiential exercises. The process is intended to help clients examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that may be holding them back and works to identify the new choices and practices that can move clients forward toward a more authentic life. The primary focus is on cultivating shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way clients live.


In addition to the Daring Way process, you will be introduced to information about a couple of innovative energy-oriented coaching and self-help techniques based on the newly emerging field of energy psychology called Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT and Matrix Reimprinting (collectively “Energy Techniques”). The Energy Techniques seek to address imbalances within an individual’s energy system, as well as the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body. The prevailing premise of the Energy Techniques is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering well-being.


Specifically, EFT uses the ancient Chinese meridian system to balance the energy system with a gentle tapping procedure which stimulates designated meridian end points on the face and body while focusing on issues of emotional intensity in order to release the intensity and reframe the issues. When using EFT as part of a coaching session, the client does the tapping on the client’s own body and the practitioner helps guide the session by instructing the client where to tap while saying specific phrases based on the issues that are being worked on. Matrix Reimprinting is considered an extension of EFT; however, it differs from EFT since it’s based on the premise that the subtle energies are trapped in the energy field/matrix which surrounds each individual and not in the body-mind brain. The main premise behind Matrix Reimprinting is that when you have experienced a stressful or traumatic event, a fragmented part of yourself is frozen in that moment and remains in your energy field. A Matrix Reimprinting coaching session is designed to change the outcome of what had occurred in the frozen past.





The Daring Way process and the Energy Techniques have several applications, including use as self-help tools, coaching methods, and as a therapeutic treatment when used by qualified health care professionals. You understand that Linda Reed uses the Daring Way process and the Energy Techniques solely as coaching methods. Any information presented on this website about the Daring Way process and the Energy Techniques is not intended to represent that they are used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any medical problem or psychological disorder nor are they intended as a substitute for seeking professional health care advice. Linda Reed, as the single member of Linda J. Reed Coaching, LLC strongly advises that you seek professional advice as appropriate before making any health decision.


Although the Energy Techniques appear to have promising mental, spiritual, and physical benefits and there is a growing amount of scientific research indicating that EFT is an effective evidence-supported technique, especially for managing stress, the Energy Techniques have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the Energy Techniques are considered experimental and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risk and benefits, are not fully known. The Energy Techniques are self-regulated and the State of New York does not license any practitioners of the Energy Techniques and considers them to be alternative or complementary to the healing arts that are licensed by the State of New York. Although Linda Reed is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington, you understand that she is only offering her services as a professional coach and does not provide psychotherapy services to clients in her coaching practice.
