If you’re looking to qualify as an AAMET EFT Accredited Practitioner, you’ll want to be affiliated with an organisation who’s stellar history is making change that brings it in line with national education and counselling bodies. And this will be relevant once the NHS starts looking to a relevant organisation that keeps the public safe and makes practitioners accountable.
Once you’ve taken the AAMET EFT Levels 1&2 Training, you’ll want to go the extra distance, whether you’re just qualifying, or as an already qualified practitioner you want to uphold your certification by keeping up with the annual Supervision and CPD requirements.
And now you’re truly ready to get qualified and revolutionise your own practice, and having a great practice does take … you’ve guessed it … practice.
If you’re newly qualifying here’s what happens next (otherwise scroll down for Supervision information)!
The Case Studies
In order to qualify you need to complete a minimum of 4-case studies; one on yourself and three on other people, I have two guides I can send you, if you don’t already have them, you’ll need to fill out the form below to request them, they are:
- The AAMET case study guidelines
- An edited guide to the case studies with comments
This can be challenging, depending on your experience, and can be more so when you’re already a practitioner in other methods, where different habits have been required of you for client work.
This tool integrates well with whatever you already do, but may also show you how to cut corners off the number of sessions needed, because in time you’ll learn to only work on what’s required by the client.
But EFT is different in that it’s completely client lead, and if I sense you’d benefit from having more practice once you’ve completed the set number, I’ll ask you for more.
The experience is never wasted, and a great EFT Practitioner evolves from exploring through masses of … here’s that word again … practice.
Developing your skill is all about reading between the lines, and developing an intuition of where best to go to clear your client’s distress.
As part of your AAMET Practitioner requirements you need to complete:
- 6-hrs of Supervision prior to qualifying
- 12-hrs a year once you’re certified (accredited)
This allows you to explore all the outstanding questions and threads that need answers as you’re working through, or have worked through your case studies.
This ultimately helps you take your clients through the work that results in deep shifts that they probably didn’t even know they needed, but is what clients come to expect from their EFT sessions.
It also allows you a chance to ask anything that remains unclear, no matter how newbie it feels to ask it, or how experienced you are and feel awkward to ask on the topic. This will:
- Dispel the 5-minute wonder myths
- Peel back the onion
- Get to the crux of the issue quicker
- Fully use your intuition
- Allow you to get out of the clients way
- Get your clients out of their own way
- Using clean language
- Help your clients become more consciously aware
- Identify and approach the elephant in the room
- Ensure your quality of EFT isn’t just another coaching tool
- Q&A – all your questions answered
- Work with each other in pairs
- Improve active listening skills
- Get into the full flow of a client session without a safety net
- Dig for gold – as you help clients let go of the old
- Work with each other in pairs
- Enable you to progress in your personal work
- Bring any case studies / current client queries into the room
Once you’ve paid for your Supervision which will be a mix of personal and group, Jane will be in touch to co-ordinate suitable times and dates.
NB: For the group aspect, we need to find majority times of day, days of the week to suit everyone, please have some flexibility here, as working in a group is so beneficial.
I want to guide you not to take it too early. The cost is £15.00 and you get 3-chances before you have to pay AAMET again.
Please be sure you’re ready, and I’ll mostly be guiding you to wait, before taking the test, in order that you’re clear on all the nuances of EFT beforehand.
Even though you get three chances, it would be great to pass the first time and save any additional stress.
