Training in EFT Tapping

Peta is a highly skilled, effective and personable lecturer, teacher and trainer. She hosts Evidence Based EFT Trainings for health professionals and teachers each year (in person and online), as well as delivering Masterclasses, Workshops and Keynotes speeches at conferences around the world.

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and is commonly referred to as “Tapping” or “psychological acupuncture”. The developers of EFT see it as being similar to acupuncture without the use of needles. EFT is a powerful self-help method based on research showing that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease. Clinical trials have shown that EFT is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Simply, it is a self applied stress reduction tool that can be taught to anyone, and children as young as 5 years.

Whether you’re a life coach wanting to add to your qualifications, a therapist wishing to integrate EFT into your existing practice, a psychologist seeking effective tools to address PTSD, a teacher looking for innovative classroom skills, or whether you simply want to use EFT for yourself and your friends, you will find the EFT training process a rewarding, stimulating, and supportive experience.
