Qualification requirements

Certification as EFT therapist

Within our training courses we set requirements for our therapists, which we take over from the EFT parent association ICEEFT in Canada. In this way we monitor the quality of EFT therapy and of EFT relationship therapists. The EFT education level of the member therapists on this EFT therapist list is guaranteed by us.
