Premium EFT Accreditation Training

About Evidence Based EFT Training


Evidence Based EFT (EBEFT) offers training in Clinical EFT (tested in clinical research trials) for lay people wanting to achieve accreditation or health professionals seeking to upskill.

The objectives of the Evidence Based EFT (EBEFT) Premium Accreditation include:

● Providing a high-quality training that align with the guidelines of the USA Cognitive Somatic Energy Practices National Standards working document
● Establishing a recognition symbol to indicate all training requirements have been met
● Creating an expert level training with its recognition symbol (accreditation in EBEFT)

This Evidence Based EFT Training has been accepted as an International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) Approved Training Provider.

This training is highly experiential. You will apply the EFT technique to your own circumstances in order to learn how to apply it to clients. Please be prepared to engage at this level for a maximum learning experience.

EBEFT considers accreditation to be very important. Existing clinicians working with clients in a therapy context, or novice practitioners who are developing their EFT skills will find the process of accreditation will enhance their expertise, quality and competency in using EFT with a wide range of clients. Developing a high level of proficiency is vital for comprehensive client care, and the benefits of accreditation include:

• Maximises the teaching and learning experience of EFT training
• Ensures ethically sound and robust EFT clinical practice
• Enhances quality control in the EFT field
• Opportunity for practitioners to demonstrate competence in using EFT

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation as an EBEFT Practitioner is not required in order to practice EFT. Many existing licensed health professionals may want to seek EFT skills training only, however basic training does not cover all the applications possible, and bad habits can and will occur. For best practice, and quality service for clients, ongoing mentoring through the accreditation pathway is strongly recommended.

The Premium Accreditation with EBEFT may be used as professional development for licensed professionals.

Finally, completing accreditation allows practitioners to display the accreditation logo and title on their website and marketing materials. EBEFT is well regarded in the EFT world and Dr Peta Stapleton is the world’s leading researcher in the EFT field. Aligning yourself with this training program will be associated as being reputable and evidence based.

Structure of EBEFT Training

All trainees are required to familiarize themselves with the pre reading materials available here  - these may be updated to reflect current research and evidence each year. The primary training is then a 3-day Evidence Based EFT Practitioner training (in person or live online, not recorded). It will be available for these groups to attend (concurrently or in separate groups at the Trainer's discretion)

EFT for Personal Use

This is an introductory EFT training open to anyone over the age of 16 years and is typically delivered on a single day. You can attend online or in person. Learn to apply EFT Tapping to 3 areas:

1. EFT for Stress and Worry
EFT has also been shown to lower cortisol levels, which is the stress hormone. Too much cortisol can result in lowered immune function and ultimately affect our physical health. EFT has been shown to down regulate genes associated with the stress response, and improve immune functioning. Learn how to tap for stress in the morning.

2. EFT for Physical Issues (Pain)
Pain is a very real thing, although it is difficult to objectively measure it. Research shows that being in a negative mood makes pain sensations in the body magnified. EFT has been explored for chronic pain and other physical issues, with great success. Learn how to tap on the physical sensations of pain for relief.

3. EFT for Sleep and Energy
EFT may be the new coffee during the afternoon slump after this module! Learn how tapping can assist with energy levels, and also sleep and insomnia. Many research trials have explored EFT for insomnia in a range of age groups and it is a very useful strategy for this area in life.

As a bonus, the day also overviews how to use EFT for Children. Children as young as 4-5 years can also tap! We also cover how to slightly adjust for our younger children, and resources such as handouts and cool ideas for young ones are discussed.

EFT Research: If you are interested in the science and evidence behind EFT and the growing body of research, then be assured it is included! The day's program contains information to the seminal work, and the best websites to explore.
