   What is EFT?  

The Emotional Freedom Techniques are remarkably effective with emotional clearing that can help to reduce or eliminate: (1) stress, (2) negative emotions & feelings and (3) accumulated emotional pain, and more. The fundamental aim is to help people become more functional in life and to expand their comfort zones. A primary purpose is to resolve personal problems by resolving underlying issues, negative feelings and traumas.

The basic EFT tapping technique includes:  tapping on (stimulating) a series of specific tapping points  while  (at the SAME time) the client is tuning into (or being mindful of) a current emotion, feeling, issue or memory (or similar)  and also  personally expressing or saying it (at each tapping point).  These help a client to become more consciously present in the Here and the Now (which helps the client to open the door and step out of the problem or upset). It's a waking up.

The basic EFT tapping technique is fairly easy to learn and it can be self-applied and/or used with others.  The basic tapping technique is gradually learnt and understood and it becomes more and more useable. And, it's a lot of fun.

[1]  A one-day Level 1 EFT workshop FLIER includes an overview to EFT, an outline of what EFT is about, plus what can be achieved by applications of it. The informations in the flier are worth going over a few or more times.

[2]  An Introduction to EFT provides an Overview of EFT plus some more information and/or reading about it.  This includes: An introduction to EFT, EFT endorsements by some well-known authors, an article entitled Emotional Rescue (published in THE AUSTRALIAN newspaper), brief descriptions of the EFT workshops, and also private EFT sessions, asking related questions, plus some more.

[3]  For a deeper and wider understanding of EFT, click on the link for more details about EFT, which looks into what EFT is all about plus a wider description of how and why it works, and more!  EFT is not a magic wand. It is a down-to-earth and roll-up-your-sleeves approach that can be used to systematically and effectively work on individual personal issues.

One option is to have one or more private EFT sessions with an EFT practitioner, where you work on a personal problem (or problems) and to gradually learn enough of the basic EFT tapping technique to be able to self-apply it. Working with an EFT practitioner is a team activity. And, maybe attend a Level 1 workshop later to expand your skills.  

Another option is to learn EFT more deeply by attending the one-day introductory EFT workshop (Level 1) which is a more detailed and practical way to learn EFT and its fundamentals.  Some people have one or more private EFT sessions first and then choose to attend a workshop to expand their EFT skills.

The one-day introductory Level 1 EFT workshop goes further and deeper.  You can examine the basics of EFT, observe demonstrations, personally experience it, learn and practice using the full EFT technique, using EFT with some other students, learn some simple ways to work with personal issues, get introduced to how EFT is used to reduce a painful experience, and more. Some people re-do Level 1 a number of times and many go on to also attend Level 2 (which improves self-applications and gives you more "tools" to use). 

  The EFT Workshops and the Counselling Workshop  

Terminology:  "EFT" stands for "Emotional Freedom Techniques" but, in conversations, that's quite often referred to as the "Tapping Technique" or just called "the Tapping". 

Click on the link to display the workshops diagram showing the four EFT workshops presented by Peter Graham.  Note: The workshops listed below are sometimes also held on unadvertised date(s) (such as on another weekend or sometimes during the week).

Introductory Level 1 EFT Workshop:  The one-day introductory Level 1 EFT workshop ($175 - or just $45 when re-doing it) is likely to be on a Sunday and mostly in mid-to-late January.  There can be another workshop if it's useful OR if there are too many clients i.e. clearly beyond 10 and enough.  Level 1 introduces and teaches "the Tapping technique" and the fundamentals of EFT, and it includes practicing and experiencing EFT, and more.  It's a great technique and it's very useful for self-applications and can be used to help others.  And, the end of a day-time workshop is around 4:15 to 4:30 pm.  A Level 1 workshop can be fully re-done again (plus a few more times at even lower costs) to help build up the EFT basics with even more confidence. That is basic and normal. 

Foundational Level 2 EFT workshop:  The two-day foundational Level 2 EFT workshop ($295 - or just $80 when re-doing it) will be held on a Saturday and Sunday, which might be held in mid-December 2018 but much more likely in January 2019.  The Level 2 workshop is exciting and supports some major steps forward. It's worth it.  Level 1 and Level 2 are known together as the Foundation of EFT.  When someone has attended the Level 2 workshop once, it's very useful to re-do the two-day Level 2 workshop again (at least once more or several more times).  A step forward: Sooner or later, the understandings and skills may have become ready to attend a one-day version of the same Level 2 workshop, and then developing it even more deeplyInformation: Staying with a two-day Level 2 workshop is preferred by some clients and that is completely OK! 

Advanced Level 3 EFT workshop:  Those who want to attend the Level 3 workshop need to have a very good familiarity with the Level 2 workshop first and to know it well (but not required to be an expert).  This three-day advanced Level 3 EFT workshop ($395 - or just $105 when re-doing it all again - or less if not re-doing all of the three days).  It usually includes two-days plus one more day for the third-day (but that can be changed by agreements and a one or more week-day(s) might be included).  The Level 3 is largely a practitioner workshop BUT lay (non-professional) EFT practitioners AND EFT enthusiasts can also attend it and they love it AND some others only want to self-apply it! 

The one-day very useful and exciting introduction to the Fundamentals of Counselling ($150 or just $35 when re-doing it (which takes about 5 to 6 hours).  The next workshop might be held in December 2018 (but much more likely to be in January).  These basic skills can be VERY useful in all of our lives and especially our relationships and interactions.  Counselling training is strongly recommended for those who are or will be using EFT with others. There are no pre-requisites. Let me know if you are interested in attending it. It's very useful for life itself. 

NOTE: The workshops can sometimes also be attended (in a small group) BEFORE an advertised date OR AFTERWARDS at a suitable and agreed upon date, which can be held on a weekend day OR during a week-day (for a few attendees).

Bookings and Enquiries:  You can contact me on (08) 9487 8363 for more information or to make a booking (by leaving a clear message and also a very very clear Name and Contact Number ==> also repeated). 

Note: All of these EFT workshops are held locally in Western Australia, but they can also be held away from Perth central as well as inter-state or overseas (with dates and places arranged with the applicants and with a minimum of numbers required to make it viable).

   Private EFT Sessions  

I do private (one-on-one) EFT sessions to help individuals make measurable progress with their personal issues and to expand their comfort zones and become more functional in life.  In a nutshell, the primary aim is to effectively facilitate emotional healing and enhance personal growth and development.

A typical time for a session is around 75 minutes (plus or less about 15 minutes). The aim is to end off at a good point (and therefore to not end sessions at a specified time).

A useful motto: "The person is not the problem, the person has a problem."

IF you want to know more about EFT (and you haven't already read this article), then click on the EFT Information Pack first for a general introduction to EFT (if that's needed). THEN, click on a deeper description of EFT which includes a more detailed outline of EFT plus a brief overview of why and how EFT works.  It covers what mainly occurs in EFT sessions, and more!  It is a more thorough examination of why EFT works so effectively and shows that there's a LOT more to EFT than just tapping on accupressure points.

You can contact me by calling phone number (08) 9487 8363 and leaving a message and including a clear contact number (and say it twice or three times).

   EFT Certifications  

EFT certifications:  At first, there are no Practitioner Certifications after attending and completing the Level 1 EFT workshop.  However, there is an Attendance Certificate that is given to each attendant. There are also Attendance Certificates later on for both Level 2 and Level 3 when they have attended the workshops for the first time. 

To become a certified EFT Practitioner, it includes re-studying the Level 1 & Level 2 techniques [and the Level 3 techniques later] and developing the skills by practicing more and also developing some higher requirements and to become skilled enough to be an EFT Practitioner. I supervise such programs (for very reasonable costs) and it's usually spread over 3 to 9 months (in person at times and/or over the phone and/or via emails, etc.) to reach and become a skilled certified EFT Practitioner

A certified EFT practitioner has done more study and has had more practice plus has become more familiar with some important specific tests.  There are stages towards "becoming an EFT practitioner" (including appropriate meetings and/or phones or emails and/or recordings and/or discussions, and some more). Going through the program, it may include some requirements in a get-together with others on the pathway plus some group practices. 

I have been an international certified EFT Trainer for over 10 years and have been connected for years with the worldwide AAMET International.   After thorough and reasonable work, you can become internationally recognized with AAMET (including passing an AAMET exam overseas) as a certified EFT Practitioner.  There is More Information about AAMET at the end of this document.

   Some of the Scientific Studies  

International research:  Studies have been done that repeatedly show the effectiveness of EFT.  A summary of this has been carried out in seven countries with over fifty studies published so far and results have been published in peer-reviewed journals.  In the web site linked to, the abbreviation "EP" refers to the field of "Energy Psychology" and EFT is the most successfully studied of the "energy techniques" that come under this general heading.

Evidence of effectiveness:  Back in November 2012, the American Psychological Association (APA) published a summation of numerous validated studies showing the effectiveness of the Emotional Freedom Techniques. This was a significant step towards becoming fully accepted in the mainstream. It has taken years to get to this point and there's lots more to be done (and is being done).

EFT and War Veterans:  In February 2013, the prestigious Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, the oldest peer-reviewed psychiatry journal in North America, published an extensive study on the use of EFT with War Veterans (all of whom had PTSD). The results were outstanding. EFT is phenomenally effective with painful memories and traumas.

The effect of EFT on Stress Biochemistry:  The Journal of Nervous & Mental Disease also published a study that examined the changes in cortisol levels (which relate to degrees of stress) and psychological distress symptoms of 83 nonclinical subjects. Subjects were randomly assigned to three groups and EFT was used with one of the groups. Salivary cortisol assays were performed immediately before and 30 minutes afterwards. The EFT group experienced a significant decrease in cortisol level and the decrease mirrored the observed improvement in psychological distress.

   EFT Newsletters 

EFT Newsletters:  My EFT newsletters usually include things happening locally and also around the world that are interesting and useful, an EFT article of mine or by another EFT practitioner, my workshop schedules, the "tip" of the Month, the next Practice Sessions date, information on private EFT Sessions and the EFT Masters Newsletter, and Insurance for EFT practitioners & trainers.

Gary Craig's News:  Gary Craig, the founder of EFT.  Click here to visit Gary's Official EFT Tutorial.  It offers a free, updated, refined, expanded and more detailed EFT Tutorial that replaces his earlier EFT Manual.  It sets the Official Standard for EFT instruction and training.  And, Gary also has a new EFT newsletter plus a set of affordable online EFT Videos for more serious EFT'ers.

The international EFT Masters:  There are only 29 EFT Masters certified by Gary Craig worldwide with only three in Australia i.e. Peter Graham (myself) plus Maggie Adkins and Rehana Webster both in the east.  These EFT Founding Masters have their own web sites and you are invited to subscribe to their practical, information-rich and cutting-edge Tips from the EFT Masters which is ideal for those who are serious about using EFT and want to continue expanding their EFT skills.  The EFT masters are committed to taking a leading role in quality EFT training worldwide and honoring their status as responsible leaders in the international EFT community.

   Books and videos  

An Impressive EFT Movie:  A professional full-length movie on the use of EFT with combat veterans who have been suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was released in 2011. It is called OPERATION - Emotional Freedom. It's very impressive and shows just what EFT is capable of in this area. Gary thinks that it will be a stunning door opener for the whole EFT field. It is real and professional and shows EFT's amazing potential - close, personal and moving.

Brilliant book for serious EFT'ers - "EFT & Beyond":  The ground-breaking 532-page book "EFT & Beyond Cutting Edge Techniques for Personal Transformation" is a gold mine of advanced cutting-edge EFT techniques and never before have so many EFT experts (including many certified EFT Masters worldwide) combined to create a resource of this depth and value. I'm personally honoured to be one of the authors and my article is called "EFT for Turning Points" which describes how to use EFT to resolve the long-lasting negative effects of severe traumatic experiences which were "turning points" for the worse. This book can be obtained from the US OR from the UK and (I've been told) both with a no-charge delivery from either the US or from the UK.

   About me  

My EFT Qualifications:  Gary Craig is the founder and developer of the EFT techniques. In January 2007, Gary's "EFT Insights" Newsletter announced that I was officially certified as an EFT Master, the highest EFT credential. There are only twenty nine EFT Masters certified by Gary Craig in the world, a list (below) with three Australian names. They are known as EFT Founding Masters. Later in 2007, I was also awarded EFT Honors certification. I am a full member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) and have been granted the status of IICT Approved Training Provider.

Meet me on YouTube:  In October 2007, I was a presenter at an EFT Masters' Showcase in Sydney, where six EFT Masters from around the world (with 3 from Australia plus 1 from New Zealand, 1 from the UK and another from Turkey). Each of us gave talks, answered questions and did live EFT sessions with volunteers from the audience of about 100.

I gave a five minute talk at that event in 2007 that is available on YouTube. The video section also included whether EFT is a treatment or a tool for personal & spiritual growth, or both or a wide brush. The volunteer for my on-stage EFT session asked to speak to the whole audience the next day to say that the benefits she experienced had been profound.

My Background and Experience:  I was trained and worked as a pastoral counsellor in the 1970's, was a registered marriage celebrant and I trained and supervised other counsellors. I moved on from that period of my life (over 36 years ago), learnt a lot of valuable lessons and have been involved in emotional clearing and relationship coaching during most of the time since then (in both a full time and part time capacity). I came across EFT in November 1999 and, since mid-2000, I have been using EFT for over eighteen years (and still learning more).

   Training Information  

Workshop with Gary Craig:  In November 2005, I attended a four-day EFT Masters workshop in San Francisco with Gary Craig (the master developer of the EFT techniques).  This was only the third time that this particular course had been held.  There were 11 candidates on the course plus about 30 observers.  Each of the candidates were required to do at least one live session (in front of those attending and observing) while it was filmed and then critiqued afterwards by Gary.  It was an honour to meet Gary Craig and to share this experience with some of the most experienced EFT practitioners in the world.  Five of them were from the US, two from Canada, one from the UK, and there were three Australians.  I was awarded an EFT Master Certificate signed by Gary Craig.  There are only three certified EFT Masters in Australia.

The primary EFT Workshops:  They are: the one-day introductory EFT workshop (Level 1), the two-day foundational EFT workshop (Level 2), and the three-day Advanced EFT workshop (Level 3).  There are also some advanced (beyond Level 2) special-purpose workshops such as the two-day Personal Empowerment EFT Workshop.  Click on the link to display a diagram (in PDF format) that shows the sequence and relationship of the EFT workshops presented by Peter Graham.  There are also EFT Practitioner certification programmes for Levels 2 and 3.

Advertised and unadvertised workshops:  All of these workshops are scheduled and advertised.  However, there are also unadvertised dates from time to time where at least a minimum number of people want to do it and the dates for them are agreed upon.  An unadvertised workshop may also be held in an agreed upon location which may be local, in the country, interstate or overseas.  In other words, it's based on negotible agreements where everyone wins.

EFT and TFT:  I am often asked what the difference is between EFT and, its predecessor, Thought Field Therapy (TFT).  EFT evolved out of TFT in the early nineties and has continued to evolve and develop since that time to become the powerful and flexible technique that it is today.  It's my personal view that EFT is a more effective, more elegant, more streamlined and easier to use technique with much more flexibility and uses. I honour Dr Roger Callahan for his innovative research and significant breakthroughs that made it possible for the EFT techniques to be developed later on. Gary Craig studied TFT to the highest level and later went on to develop the amazing and simplified EFT tapping technique.

Developing Your EFT Skills Further:  Having completed both the Level 1 and 2 EFT workshops, it is not the end of the road as far as developing your EFT skills is concerned.  "EFT" stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques (plural).  There are many options and possibilities for further advancing your confidence and skills.  There is much more to learn about how EFT can be used and what it can be used for and the potential benefits are vast in scope and are open-ended.  Many people have re-done Level 2 several or more times to consolidate and enhance those core skills (which you can't know too well).  The Level 3 EFT Workshop and the "Personal Empowerment EFT Workshop" are both advanced EFT workshops that require Level 2 skills as their pre-requisites, because they are built on and depend on the foundational core of the Level 2 EFT skills.  The "Introduction to the Basics of Counselling workshop" teaches and explores some important counselling/coaching/facilitating concepts and skills that can make a big positive difference when appying and using EFT with others.
