2-day introductory course
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), sometimes described as 'psychological acupressure', was developed in the USA in the 1990's and has been hailed as 'universal healing aid'.
A gentle yet powerful therapy, it can reach down into the complex nature of eating disorders, to manage all kinds of difficult issues normally resistant to traditional therapies such as cravings, resistance to change and body hatred.
EFT is a safe therapy which is easily learned and can effectively be used alongside more evidence-based therapies. Packed full of experiential content and personal attention, this training could change your life.

What is EFT?
EFT is a meridian therapy which uses the skills of Cognitive Therapy by 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 behavioral choices in any domain of life.
Anyone, including those working with addictions (and you can even bring your clients).
Applications of EFT to eating disorders & obesity
EFT is useful in many ways. Here is a selection of applications:
- managing cravings
- confronting compulsions and impulsive behaviour
- resistance to self-harming behaviour such as purging
- weakening anorexic thinking
- stopping self marning behaviour such as purging
- managing fat feelings or other body image problems
- De-programming eating disorder rituals
- dealing with underlying trauma
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. Your clients will like it and will quickly be able to apply this technique that is easy to “do at home” with safety.
