EFT Trainings

The Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT 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 either diana@upliftingeft.com or info@upliftingeft.com.

Please note that in all UpLifting EFT trainings, practicums and group exercises offer the opportunity to experience your own release and healing. 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.
