Success Stories


I’d like to express my deepest gratitude for Cedric and the work our family has done with emotional regulation. Cedric has helped us heal from trauma and PTSD.
Our family experienced an extended traumatic experience that lasted for over five years. The ongoing trauma threw each of us into crisis after crisis that ultimately resulted in PTSD. We were living in an emotional environment of panic, anxiety, fear, rage—all the emotions that developed as toxic defense mechanisms throughout the years of trauma. The sad reality is that because each of us had experienced such severe trauma, we would trigger one another when confronted with conflict or stressful situations instead of being able to love and support one another.
Through these crises, we started seeking help from over a dozen therapists, doctors, and psychiatrists for individual and family support. While the therapy and medication provided some small amount of relief, over time the process of rehashing conflict and re-living the trauma yielded poor results and became too exhausting, particularly for our youngest.
Thankfully, someone recommended emotional regulation with Tipi.
The brilliant thing about this work is, unlike many types of therapy, there is no rumination about any trauma that happened in the past. The technique, which focuses on breaking the cycle of physiological response to a trigger or situation, is straightforward and easily grasped by kids. I initially brought our youngest in to Cedric, because with ADHD and having grown up through a tumultuous environment, our son had the severe difficulty with anxiety, impulse control, and emotional regulation. The results were immediate and so effective that we all started seeing Cedric.
The work that Cedric has done with each of us has allowed us to heal our triggers, move past the trauma, and begin living our lives fully again.
Thank you, Cedric, for bringing the Tipi program to the USA, and thank you for all you do!



I have had the opportunity to utilize what I have learned during the training with a few teachers/adults and some kids.
My favorite quote from a kid, “why do I suddenly feel so okay? What just happened here???”


Mike (Teacher)
I’m doing much better, with not feeling frustrated about my children’s behavior.
No matter what they do, I hardly ever feel frustrated anymore. And when I do occasionally, I regulate and the moment passes without incidence. Because I’m in better control of my emotions, it has made my son’s behaviorial problems much less severe. When he refuses to do something, I just calmly inform him of the consequences and let him be. Usually he comes around within minutes!

While beneficial for understanding, talk therapy (and many other therapies) was not changing anything. I was miserable and feeling hopeless that my anxieties and fears would, or could ever, change. I was living inside walls of fear and anxiety.

Then someone told me about TIPI. I read everything I could find about it and thought “Well, this just seems way too good to be true.” After one 15 minute free phone consult with Cedric, I was ready to give it a try. It certainly couldn’t hurt. I’ve been working with Cedric for a little while now and though I’m not where I want to be (I’ve got a lot of stuff!), I know this works.
-After just one session my anxiety level went from a very consistent 10 to a 4. I can not only cope, I can dare to hope!
-I had a really terrible shoulder pain for well over a year that wasn’t going away even with physical therapy. I felt in my gut the pain was actually grief or despair. We did a session on despair. That pain is GONE.
-I have had foot pain for many years due to a genetic hereditary neuromuscular disease. The session for the foot pain wasn’t exactly the emotional regulation session but it’s very similar modified for psychosomatic conditions. Given this is a hereditary genetic disease I thought no way this is going to work. To my true delight, after that one session my foot pain is 90% less than it was.

Cedric is kind and compassionate, patient and non-judgmental. He’s extremely supportive and it’s evident he loves what he does and truly wants to help people. He’s professional but accessible, gets right to business but has a great personality. TIPI is quite amazing and the best part, immediate relief while not having to relive or rehash past traumas. Skeptical? I was too. After close to 6 decades of emotional and physical pains, I no longer feel like a lost cause. I finally feel hope and can dare to dream.

Thank you Cedric!!


“Tipi was my last resort. I felt imprisoned by my fear until I met Cedric and his knowledge of  Tipi.
Even though it was not easy to make these kinds of confessions as they are really private, I told him about my fear and some details about it. He certainly listened to me and I congratulate him for his sensitivity.
Since our meeting, Cedric gave me back the freedom I lost 20 years ago.
The only regret I have today is that I wish I knew Tipi and Cedric before.
I would highly recommend Cedric as he is a very understanding therapist, and he basically just changed my life in a better way. You can trust me, it’s worth it.  “

“I’ve explored and experienced a range of therapies and therapeutic modalities over the decades.  Some analytical, some somatic based.  While at first enquiry Tipi may be similar to certain other methods, upon experiencing it, I discovered it to be quite distinct as a technique and, furthermore, outstandingly effective for the specific ‘issues’ I have applied the Tipi technique to.  What has also impressed me tremendously is the fact that one is not left dependent upon visiting a Tipi specialist time and time again, but can be taught to use the technique ‘autonomously’…  it is a powerful tool for personal development and well-being.  I wish I had been able to learn it while in my youth… it is incredibly empowering.”

Megan Gallagher

“I had one Tipi session with Cedric for an issue that had been bothering me for several months. He was clear in his explanation of the process, I felt totally comfortable working with him, and I found immediate relief through the work we did. The issue, and the accompanying anxiety, feel totally resolved to this day. I have recommended the work to several people since my session and will absolutely continue to.”

Ann Langley

“I’ve had a bridge phobia for over seven years.  One session of Tipi with Cedric made it so that I was able to drive over the bridge for the first time in years, without panicking. I’m very grateful and believe Tipi is a quick and effective way to treat debilitating anxiety, etc.  Thank you, Cedric!”

Karen Elizabeth

“Simply put, Tipi has changed my life…

Because of its simple, yet effective sensory evoking technique, I was able to awaken to my true self through my physical body and live my life in the present moment.

Difficult initially, yet due to my desire for growing and the powerful and gentle teachings from a Tipi specialist, and by working with the Tipi community, I have been able to resolve my past conditioning, and enjoy a much more fulfilled life.”

David Song

“Quite some time passed since our last TIPI session.
I am totally changed and words can’t express the way I feel!! I am speechless 🙂
Yesterday we even invited my husband’s parents and we spent a great day together.
I have warm feeling towards them – no feeling of anger or whatsoever. When I think of the past I have got the feeling as if there is no emotional attachment to the past experiences any more – Well in fact – I am not even interested in those long ago past stories.

You really saved the life of my family and I am sooo happy. Finally, I could come to peace and have all my energy at my exposal again!! I should have met you many years earlier!!”

Kelsey Harmon

“OMG you are my and Kerstin’s hero. She can’t stop gushing about how effective and life-changing your session with her was. I have so many more stories to share! She’s savoring every minute of her new-found freedom. I almost think we need to record her and document her life before and after TIPI. It’s so dramatic and so miraculous!”

Amanda Sals

“I feel like a new person. I have enjoyed the whole week so far since we last talked.
I feel that comfortable so that I want to postpone our next session. Of course, there are some more feelings I’d like to resolve, however, at the moment I feel so fine that I just want to enjoy and relax :-)”
