Learn simple, powerful practices to swiftly improve the functioning and well-being of your clients.

Master an integrative framework that allows you to combine energy work with most conventional psychotherapy modalities. 


Develop a specialty niche in the $57 billion complementary and alternative health care market and reduce dependency on low-fee managed care contracts.


By the end of both workshops, you will learn a comprehensive approach to energy psychology interventions, which include working with:

  • Energy Pathways - The Meridians and Related Acupoints
  • Energy Centers - The Chakras
  • Energy Systems - Biofields that envelop the body

This is Level 2 of a two-part workshop series (Level 1 is a mandatory requirement prior to taking Level 2!)

This training program is designed to help attendees understand EP within an overall perspective of sound science, practical application and ethical consideration. The term "comprehensive” refers to the fact that attendees will have an array of tools that they can use to customize treatment to the specific needs of each client. Furthermore, they will have a framework that allows them to integrate those tools within an overall psychotherapeutic framework. This workshop also prepares helping professionals wishing to become part of ACEP’s Certification Program in Comprehensive Energy Psychology.

Level Two Overview
  • Review and Advanced applications of the six-step CEP model.
  • Advanced issues in addressing and correcting conscious and subconscious objections.
  • Chakras and the Biofield interventions for trauma, anxiety, pain, depression, addictive urges and negative feeling states.
  • Advanced interventions using meridian approaches: going beyond algorithms to customized treatment.
  • Using CEP for building positive states and performance enhancement.
  • Advanced issues in helping clients act with integrity on personal, familial and community levels.
  • Advanced issues in selecting treatment modalities custom tailored to each client.
  • Advanced issues in ethical practice of Energy Psychology.
