Welcome to EFT Mastery: Be Your Own Trauma Therapist!

This course teaches EFT and associated trauma resolution techniques to people who wish to resolve their own trauma. This course goes deep into the subject matter, far beyond the basics.

The sum of these techniques are useful and effective for working through specific traumas such as:

  • Phobias
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Abuse, etc...
  • Too strong emotions that are inappropriate for the circumstances

* This course is not a substitute for appropriate professional care.

This introduction to Emotional Freedom Technique quickly proceeds beyond the basics into the advanced usages. Though EFT can be used by trauma therapists for the resolution of trauma, this course is designed for people that will be tapping on themselves.

We will cover the basic recipe, the setup phrase, the SUDs rating, the tapping points, and how to find deeper aspects, to take the EFT practitioner to the deeper levels of emotional freedom. Also included are numerous techniques that are used in various other trauma resolution modalities.

Considered essential, there are exercises included that will guide you to apply EFT and what you have learned in the course. Doing these exercises will have a definite impact on experienced levels of trauma.

The course will take about an hour and a half and will leave the student with sufficient understanding to begin engaging in the practice of eliminating unwanted fears and emotions.

What are the requirements?

  • You should have a desire to improve the quality of your emotional experience.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Use EFT to remove your own traumatic fears and emotions
  • Know when seeing a professional trauma therapist is appropriate
  • Understand trauma and see it from a skillful perspective

Who is the target audience?

  • For anyone who feels the need to overcome their trauma
  • Students who frequently experience strong emotions or fears, and want to change that.
  • For EFT Practitioners who want to better understand their craft.
  • This course is for anyone who wants a deep understanding of EFT and trauma.

The Personal Peace Process is the primary exercise to practice through this course and beyond...

Gary Craig defined it as a list with 100 entries. Perhaps you would like to start with 10.

Section 2: The Path of the Therapist

The primary quality of the trauma therapist is presence.

This includes trustworthiness, compassion and skillfulness.

1 question

The root issue of trauma is the split within ourselves.

Being our own trauma therapist is returning to ourselves and healing that split.

Correction: Eckhart Tolle wrote "The Power of Now".

Section 4: Conclusion of EFT Mastery

Explanation of the tapping tree: symptoms, emotions, events, and limiting beliefs.

Numerous more techniques here, such as "Tell the story", "Watch the movie", and "The tearless trauma technique."

We are learning to shift our identity from the one who has been traumatized, to the one who is free. We are becoming our inner trauma therapist.

Feeling Into It
1 question

Here we adjust our practice to add in "active sensing".


A review of the tapping points.

Learning to sense and to learn about our energy body.

The collarbone point relates to fear and to our breathing.

Looking for physical shifts such as yawns, deep breathing, stomach gurgles. etc...

Noticing which points work for us with different emotions. Certain "Go-to" points can have a big impact.

2 questions

The different points have different affects. Some points will tend to have a stronger effect on some people. The collarbone point, and the thymus are, for some people, the first points that they tap. What points are most effective on you?


Please stay in touch, stay engaged, and keep on tapping...

Section 5: Bonus Lectures

In About Trauma we cover the nature of trauma, and the various types of trauma (phobias, PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, abuse and developmental trauma).

Trauma can come along with all sorts of symptoms such as nightmares, insomnia, depression, guilt, shame, substance abuse, suicide... take your mental-well being seriously.

We will be learning techniques that are safe and supportive.

Don't push yourself to work through trauma! Take it easy. Seek a professional as necessary.


Trauma is reactivity encoded into our bodies. Here we start to see more deeply into the mechanisms of trauma.
