Life-Changing Tools for Practitioners
While many dabble in EFT at a rudimentary experimental level, this comprehensive EFT Practitioner training program is designed to educate participants to apply EFT at a professional skill level to achieve the profound results dabbling rarely does.
Sometimes people are confused by the publicity that EFT is easy to learn and use, and so assume they can learn everything they need to know as a professional from an online tutorial, a book, or a brief workshop. For simple everyday self-help this may be enough to take the edge off the discomfort and resolve minor issues. It's like the first rung on the ladder.
However, if you are seeking to work professionally with others, you will have to climb a lot higher up the ladder of EFT skills to safely handle traumatic, chronic and deep-rooted issues, which require skilful handling with a full set of EFT tools. It takes lots of practice and guidance and that's my focus in providing this training for you. Anyone can drive an automatic car in a straight line in an empty carpark, but that doesn’t mean they are ready to drive in Auckland’s rush hour traffic!
If you intend to work with others, these workshops will provide you with a range of new strategies that will greatly increase your ability to safely and skillfully move your client towards resolution of traumatic memories and life-changing cognitive shifts. The advanced skills literally allow you to rewire the brain and fundamentally change their automatic responses. Your increased confidence and deep knowing from this professional training will make a significant impact on your client’s outcomes.
