Certified Practitioner Testimonials

"Using Gold Standard EFT is simple and makes sense. Many new clients come to me in frustration because they have worked with other practitioners using some form of EFT but with limited results. After an initial consultation, I realize they haven't been using Gold Standard EFT, but some form of global tapping instead. These same clients report feeling hopeful and peaceful at the end of a properly instructed EFT session, when previous issues with no forward movement are either gone or significantly reduced. This is why I am such a huge advocate of ACEP and Gold Standard EFT. ACEP recognizes the simplicity of EFT as it was originally intended, and gimmicks aren't necessary for amazing results."

"Going through the ACEP EFT certification process with Tina was a great experience for me. The level of detail in her requirements and her feedback on the exercises pushed me to be extremely attentive to and purposeful about what I was doing in my sessions. That increase in conscious precision, with a central focus on finding specifics and testing thoroughly, both improved my skills and sharpened my awareness of how I was using the EFT tools. I found that hugely valuable, and it led to better results and greater confidence.”

Advanced Certified Practitioner Testimonials

"This training is priceless, comprehensive and inspiring. Tina is a highly supportive, yet exacting trainer. Throughout, I became much more adept at breaking down complicated "table tops" into manageable, specific issues - cases that historically might have felt overwhelming are now highly rewarding to treat. I know I am really delivering the best EFT possible, to ensure the most effective results for my clients, with the "Craig approved” empathy and technique. This training has given a new level of confidence that one is practicing EFT in the most effective, and purest form, based on Gary and Tina's hours of experience. It is training from the source, with all the insights they have perfected."


Tamzin Freeman, ACAP-EFT

ACEP Certified Advanced Practitioner of EFT

Location: London, UK

"I signed up for the ACEP Program because I wanted the individual feedback. I learned EFT on my own and had been practicing for years but always wondered if I was getting as much out of EFT as I could. I took the EFT Cert-I and II exams a few years ago and I learned so much that it changed the scope of my practice. Now that I have demonstrated my skills and received feedback … from the source of EFT … I have a lot more confidence and my detective work has improved dramatically. By asking better questions, I can find the pain triggers and collapse them much more quickly. Thank you for this opportunity!"
