Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a proven combination of straightforward, practical self-help techniques and therapeutic tools. EFT, one of the Meridian Therapies, is also known as “tapping therapy” and has been described as “acupuncture without needles”. EFT combines the stimulation of acupressure points through a tapping process and cognitive restructuring (using specially worded affirmations). This combination of acupressure point stimulation and cognitive restructuring often leads to rapid, positive shifts in thinking patterns, helping resolve emotional issues.

EFT Level-1 Training

This two-day, EFT Level-1 training course will provide a comprehensive introduction to Emotional Freedom Techniques. It will explain the origins of this proven therapeutic practice and equip you to apply the techniques in a wide variety of situations. Immediately after the course, you will be able to use EFT techniques to yourself, friends and family.

Additional training is required to offer EFT as a therapy. We will run the EFT Level-2 (practitioner training) course as a follow-on. We offer a 10% discount for those booking both Level-1 and Level-2 at the same time. Among other things, this practical, hands-on course will cover:

  • The origin and development of EFT
