Emotional Freedom Technique (Clinical)

Why does a traumatic incident happen so quickly, have such a profound effect on you BUT then take years, or even a lifetime, to recover from?

  • How can you again sleep peaceful after a burglary?
  • How do you free yourself from the anxious feeling following a motorcar accident?
  • How do you quiet your mind after all that has happened to you?

Emotional Freedom Technique is one of a few techniques that removes (within minutes) negative emotions, “dissolves” disturbing thoughts and helps you live a normal life again!

This course teaches you how to get rid of the symptoms of trauma within minutes, with the use of Emotional Freedom Technique!

  • Confined to a specific religious viewpoint, although the presenter is a Christian.

What others are saying about the training:

Annamie AukettI  joined the course with mixed feelings. On the one hand I was curious and eager to learn a new therapeutic technique/method, but on the other hand I was a bit skeptical. Beforehand I thought that if the training was a waste of time or boring, I would quickly excuse myself.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised! My skeptical attitude was replaced with pure amazement after the first demonstration. I couldn’t have asked for something better at this specific time of my life.

When Edgar demonstrated the technique on myself I had firsthand experience of the effectiveness of EFT. Almost daily I witness how my clients’ negative emotions dissolve and are replaced with perspective and a positive attitude towards life. The use of EFT shortens my therapy sessions considerably and enables me to see more clients in a day.

I am grateful to be part of the EFT-community and belief it will spread like wildfire once it becomes more well-known. Would I recommend EFT? Of course, what a question! Not only for counselors, therapists and psychologists, but also for the man in the street that wants to help himself to get rid of daily stresses and the effect of life in the fast lane.

Testimony of a previous attendee:

I am very grateful to have been equipped with EFT – and many times I stand amaze at the results! I was contacted by an institution a while ago who was at wits’ end with a certain patient’s friend. The patient shot herself in front of her friend. I only worked with the friend for about 40 minutes when she experienced an enormous amount of release and then inner peace. It was hard for her to belief that the bang of the gun wasn’t ringing in her ears anymore and even the shivers down her spine were gone. She came to me almost in a state of hysteria, but left peaceful, calm and with a sense of joy.

Thank you for equipping me with this powerful tool and all praise to the Lord for His miraculous grace in circumstances like these!

Registration on the Assessment Centre

Prof. Waltor Hudson, the developer of Ecometric assessment scales said; If you cannot measure your client’s problem, it does not exist. If you cannot measure a client’s problem, you cannot treat it.

The Assessment Centre gives you access to a variety of internationally recognized, reliable and valid assessment scales. This workshop will enable you to use the Self-perception Scale (SPS) as well as the Negative Functioning Inventory (NFI) on the Assessment Centre in order to do before-and-after assessments.

The Self-perception Scale consists of three constructs and measures a person’s Inner insecurity, Guilt feelings, and Self worth.


Die Negative Functioning Inventory consists of six constructs, which measures Frustration, Stress and Trauma levels.
