Whether you are new to EFT or already certified this will be an exciting day that brings together members of the British EFT Centre and those from further afield.
Open to all members of the BEFT Centre & ICEEFT members not resident in Britain.
We keep costs as low as possible to support the development of the EFT community.
All profits support the BEFT Centre’s ongoing costs and enable us to keep associate membership free of charge and open to all interested Britain based therapists.
Our keynote address by Annie Power will be:
In this workshop we invite participants to lean in with us, feeling the discomfort of our mis-steps and unconscious bias, and preparing ourselves to cope with inevitable unintended micro- aggressions.
Let’s get curious about our action tendencies – do we pursue because it’s essential to discuss or withdraw because it’s too dangerous?
We will be covering:
What is different about EFT supervision from clinical supervision; developing a safe attuned supervisory relationship to help us take risks with ourselves and our work; sharing our missteps for learning and growing in practice of the model as therapists and supervisors.
Sarah McConnell, EFT supervisor and trainer-in-training, Ruth Cohen-Rose, and Jasmina Frzina.
When we take on clients and start therapy, we also elicit the dynamics of attachment between ourselves and our clients. Our fear systems become active at times of stress and our work, especially with couples, can be stressful!
In this workshop we will explore Bowlby’s ideas on the fear, caregiving and careseeking systems, how this dynamic affects us as caregivers and how we can find ways to cope when our fear systems are activated in session.

It certainly sounds strange to introduce a workshop where we are trying to give a feeling of integration after fragmentation with a story that begins and ends between the 60s and 70s. Especially a story that doesn’t end very well. It sounds strange.
How odd it is to feel one’s need to be loved, to be seen, to be cared by the loved one, and this need is not (or does not seem to be) met.
Even more in this historically difficult time, this distance sounds bad, incongruent, incomprehensible, scary, lonely, crazing making with the very meaning of the word Love. This contributes to a fragmentation of the self that has already occurred or occurs right here right now.
The Fragmentation is amplified by the distance in the pandemic, or in the war, or rather, amplified by what makes us feel in danger, alone, this time through global events.
How to bring different music, how to “reattune” all of this? Especially when the therapist is also immersed in this general disconnect.
What I would like to do is to help you listen, literally, to the ultimate change event on an EFT therapy, the one that brings the pieces together in an embrace, so that this music can guide you in your sessions, to help you integrate the self of the other by playing your instrument, yourself, in the most attuned way possible with the pain and hopes, which may be of others and why not ours too.
This one-hour session will be an opportunity to find out more about getting certified as an EFT therapist. Hear from those who are on the journey to certification and those who are newly certified. Get a chance to explore all this with colleagues.
Working with a W-W couple has often been said to be the hardest of our work as there is little alive in the room and we have to evoke it. Using a 30-minute video example, exercises, and discussion we will explore finding places to go into and then moving from partner to partner in repeated and deepening Tangos in Stage One.
