It is also important your trainer feels happy with your skill and confidence in facilitating EFT sessions and this assessment is normally done informally whilst attending the Level 2 workshop.
If you wish to become an EFT practitioner, your trainer needs to be notified of your intention in advance of the Level 2 workshop so you can be supported to ensure your skills are developed appropriately. Perfection isn’t required, as for all new practitioners the real skill develops after attaining the accreditation, however a degree of confidence and understanding is needed. Working with people with their personal problems needs a high degree of respect and developed listening skills. If your trainer feels it appropriate you may be asked to spend some weeks practising and return to a future course for re-assessment.
The following gives other important information regarding becoming an EFT practitioner.
There is a non-refundable cost of £50 registration fee for would-be practitioners which is payable before the start of the Level 2 training. We monitor practitioners-to-be more closely so we can guide you to be highly successful practitioners. The payment also covers the cost of administering the practitioner route process, and providing access to a support service where you receive 6 months support for those who have questions and challenges during the process. Support is provided as follows - moving to the next level if needed: 1) Our closed Facebook support group, 2) Direct email support, 3) Scheduling a phone / skype call in more complex situations.
There are four case studies that are required as follows:
One of the Client Case Studies must be a live demonstration and discussion of a full EFT session. This can be accomplished by live, in-person demonstration (may be online) and follow-up conversation with your trainer. A write-up of the live session may be required at the Trainer’s discretion. There is a £105 fee to pay for reviewing the session and providing feedback.
Two of the Client Case Studies must be written accounts from multiple sessions (2 minimum, 4 maximum) each with a single client.
One case study is a Personal Case Study – a written account of a personal EFT exploration that demonstrates a thorough examination of a personal issue, and includes how Core Issues were uncovered and handled (60 minutes minimum, with multiple sessions encouraged) .
You will need to have received 4 EFT sessions from a certified practitioner. This can be retrospective (i.e. if you have already had 4 sessions in the past then this counts). This gives experience of what it is to be like to receive a session from an experienced professional as well as give a chance to clear any issues arising during the practitioner certification process. It is recommended to experience at least two different practitioners as each has their own style of facilitation.
You will need to have completed 6 hours supervision after the Level 2 training.
You will need to pass a multiple choice AAMET online exam.
Before you receive your final EFT Certificate, you will need to have completed a total of 50 practice hours (you can include your case study hours). No more than 3 practice hours can be logged against any one “client” (e.g. 2 x 1 ½ hour session). This is important as everyone is unique and responds differently to the EFT process and this experience is vital to develop confidence in EFT in the role of practitioner.
Once having EFT Practitioner accreditation you can gain practitioner membership of the AAMET and have a practitioner listing. You will also need to attain CPD units each year (Continuing Professional Development) to remain a member and have 6 hours supervision.
