Sober October with Jules Vandermaat and Katie Walker

Jules Vandermatt and Katie Walker join me for a conversation about their newest program, Sober October. They created this 6-week, sober living program to support women who want to stop drinking and change their relationship with alcohol.  

Sober October helps women eliminate cravings, overcome limiting beliefs,  and confront the reasons why they often drink.  It combines the power of EFT tapping with a potent combination of one-on-one support with group coaching sessions.  

Jules and Katie provide each woman with two, 90-minute private sessions. These powerful, intimate sessions help women identify and confront the reasons why they drink. Sober October supports their journeys into sobriety with small group, weekly coaching. These two-hour group sessions give women the support of a small, friendly community and are limited to 8 women. The small cohorts help women to get comfortable, feel safe, and open up about their relationship with alcohol
