EFT/Tapping Trainings

The Emotional Freedom Technique, or Tapping, is a somatic technique which can be used by many different medical professionals to assist clients in reducing negative symptoms and increasing positive outcomes. UpLifting EFT was founded by Diana Sturm, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and certified EFT Trainer. All emails from this program will come from diana@upliftingeft.com. Please add this email to your contact list.

Please note that in all UpLifting EFT trainings, practicums and group exercises offer you the opportunity to experience your own emotional release. This also allows you to experience a session from the client’s perspective as you learn about EFT. This practice ensures that you will be ready to use these new skills with your clients at the end of the training.
