The SCCP Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT, Level One & Two Are Part Of The EMDR Plus Weekends. July 24th & 25th 2021 September 18th & 19th 2021
What is EFT?
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), otherwise known as 'Tapping' is a meridian energy technique marrying the principles of ancient Chinese medicine with modern western psychology. It shares principles with acupuncture, shiatsu, reflexology and kinesiology and is part of a growing movement known as Energy Psychology.
In its simplest form the practice involves acupressure: applying light pressure to the end points of energy meridian lines while tuning in to a specific emotional or physical issue. Despite its gentle approach, it has acquired a reputation for achieving quick, lasting results relatively painlessly when compared to other forms of psycho- and somatic therapy.
It easily integrates with other forms of therapy such as psychotherapy, counselling, Neurolinguistic Programming, hypnotherapy, homeopathy, traditional allopathic medicine, massage, kinesiology, acupuncture, to name but a few.
EFT is a direct descendant of Thought Field Therapy (TFT) a meridian energy technique developed in the 1980s by Psychologist, Dr Roger Callahan. EFT was introduced in the early 1990s by Gary Craig, a Stanford graduate engineer with an interest in psychology and Neuro linguistic Programming, who trained with Roger Callahan. Gary Craig, along with his personally trained EFT Masters has successfully disseminated this unique method throughout the world.
An ever increasing body of scientific research has validated the effectiveness of this powerful therapeutic tool . A recent study published in the Journal of Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, sought to establish the effectiveness of EFT for emotional conditions within the NHS in Sandwell. They have supported the potential of EFT "as a cost-effective treatment for a range of psychological and physical disorders" (Stewart et al., 2013)[Stewart, A., Boath, E., Carryer, A., Walton, I. & Hill, L. (2013) Can Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) be Effective in the Treatment of Emotional Conditions? Results of a Service Evaluation in Sandwell. The Journal of Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, vol. 2 71-84.]

This exciting training weekend builds and expands upon the foundations of Level 1, developing confidence in the skills and techniques learned whilst progressing through further advanced techniques and encouraging the student to develop their own artistry by combining EFT with other therapeutic tools and using their intuition.
The course paves the way to becoming certified and accredited as an NSP registered EFT Practitioner.
At Level 2 the student develops the use of gentle yet powerful techniques for working with trauma, phobias and limiting beliefs. We re-visit physical issues in greater depth, finding and treating the origins of presenting symptoms and identifying and working with any resistances that may be present.
We also learn how to troubleshoot when EFT appears not to be working.

EFT Level 3 - Advanced Practitioner Training
Level 3 Advanced Practitioner Level is for those who are serious about taking their EFT practice to new levels of mastery. In this two-day training we launch off from the essential formula into the orbit of the more radical and metaphysical expressions of tapping therapies.
We do not so much throw away the rule book, but rather stand on it to gain wider perspectives and new levels of therapeutic excellence. From this place we cross boundaries and reach for new frontiers of EFT mastery.
Along the way we visit a few of the EFT Masters' developments and revisions, and you are encouraged to experiment with your own unique skills and personal qualities to individualise your EFT practise and integrate it with other ideas and approaches.
Level 3 Advanced Practitioner status is awarded when you pass the post-course assessment which includes a minimum of 4 acceptable case studies; an online exam; 6 hours of supervision; and an observed live session. You will continue to be responsible for maintaining your NSPsy status through Mentoring/Supervision and Continuing Professional Development.
We are passionate about teaching all three levels but Level 3 is especially exciting as this is where EFT can really come to life; where you can really start to challenge yourself and transform your practice into new levels of mastery.
