Supervision/Peer Groups

Supervision/Consultation in EFT is available on an individual or peer group basis. Peer group and individual consultation are provided solely for the purpose of training in the EFT model and do not imply legal or ethical responsibility, nor substitute for the clinical supervision required by licensing entities or employers.

Peer Group Consultation

Peer groups improve the process of developing your skills as an EFT therapist in many ways:

  • Peer groups are led by experienced EFT therapists who give informed encouragement and suggestions regarding the work of participants.
  • Meeting on a consistent basis with your peers provides safety and support in the at-times daunting task of learning this model.
  • Group members receive consultation regarding their own clients, making the peer group immediately practical and applicable to their work.
  • Groups use a variety of approaches to learning:
    • discussions about the theory and practice of EFT as well as the certification process
    • viewing video clips of participants’ actual client sessions and/or training videos
    • role play with coaching by the group leaders

Individual Consultation with Certified Supervisor or Supervisor-in-Training

There is no substitute for one-on-one consultation. In the context of a supportive, collaborative alliance, you have the opportunity to get direct, case-specific encouragement and suggestions for how to intervene more effectively from an EFT perspective. Supervision is most effective when reviewing clips of video of the therapist working with the client. The therapist is responsible for obtaining written consent to show the video in consultation.
