When clients are struggling, it can feel like progress is impossible, especially when you’ve tried everything you know and are still spending most of the session trying to convince your client to meet you halfway. You and your clients are frustrated by the lack of progress, and you need something with lasting results that will also be effective in the short term.

Join EFT Master Practitioner Bonnie Grossman, LPC, in this recording, and you’ll learn how to apply effective, evidence-based, mind-body EFT (tapping) techniques in your practice to help your clients find relief from their struggles with PTSD, anxiety, depression, or chronic pain.

You’ll learn how to go beyond cognitive methods and standard relaxation techniques by integrating a fresh set of skills to calm sensations in the body and address negative thoughts and distressing emotions. Full of practical strategies and helpful tips for in-session application, you’ll obtain more than just an overview of how EFT works.

With guided practise opportunities to apply these new techniques, upon completion of this program, you’ll feel confident in your ability to use EFT with your clients.
