This advanced course teaches EFT techniques for complex mental health problems characterized by obsessive and compulsive behavior. The focus is on eating disorders such as binge eating, anorexia and bulimia plus other addictions such as alcohol and drug abuse.
EFT can be used safely and effectively to manage symptoms such as binge eating, starving, and purging. EFT will also target the underlying features of eating disorders and addictions, such as perfectionism, shame, early trauma and unmanageable emotions.
What is EFT?
EFT is a meridian therapy, a form of psychological acupressure using the skills of Cognitive Therapy and stimulating acupressure points while at the same time restructuring automatic unhelpful beliefs, underlying assumptions and values. The rapid shifts in thinking lead to relief from unwanted negative emotions. This in turn will lead to more adaptive behavioural choices in any domain of life.

Benefits to self & client
EFT is very portable. Therapists may use it to create change in their own lives and enhance their confidence in clinical practice with these vulnerable clients. Your clients will like it and will easily be able to apply these techniques on their own with safety.
It is widely acknowledged that when using this technique with clients, benefits are also ‘borrowed’ by the therapist.
