Peta is a highly skilled presenter and teacher, and conducts a range of workshops and trainings. These are focussed on Clinical EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).

Clinical EFT is a brief novel intervention combining elements of exposure and cognitive behavioural therapy, and somatic stimulation. It is often referred to as ‘psychological acupuncture’. EFT has been researched in more than 10 countries, by more than 60 investigators, whose results have been published in more than 20 different peer-reviewed journals. Australian research has found EFT for obesity and food cravings (Stapleton, Sheldon, Porter and Whitty, 2011; Stapleton, Sheldon & Porter, 2012) and smoking (Stapleton, Porter & Sheldon, 2012) to be extremely successful and durable over time. Efficacy has also been established for phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, and pain.

 The workshops introduce participants to Clinical EFT, teach the complete technique, practice during the day, and provide evidence for its efficacy. Handouts are supplied, as well as further resources and reading.

Peta also conducts training in EFT for health professionals and the general community.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is still considered experimental in nature although it is gaining in scientific support it is not yet widely accepted as a formally validated scientific technique.

All workshops and trainings are intended to promote awareness of the benefits of learning and applying EFT – however, the general public must take full responsibility for their use of it. This material is for your general knowledge only and is not a substitute for traditional medical attention, counselling, therapy or advice from a qualified health care professional. Neither EFT nor the information here is intended to be used to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease or disorder.

If you experience any unusual symptoms practicing the technique you should seek the advice of a health professional. Although the results of our research indicated that many people benefiting from the use of EFT with their food cravings, weight loss, anxiety and depression, the responses to the technique are individual. A lack of result or progress may mean you need professional assistance.

If you have any concern regarding your health or mental state, it is recommend that you seek out advice or treatment from a qualified, licensed health care professional. Before making any dietary changes or discontinuing, reducing or increasing prescription medications it is recommended that you consult with a doctor, pharmacist or other qualified medical or health professional first.
