Discover the world of TFT training.

The use of TFT continues to grow around the world.  France, Germany, the UK, Kuwait, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Africa all joined us in 2018 to share TFT with others.  We launched new training programs in all these areas as well as began new transformative Personal Healing Retreats.

See what the attendees of our last healing retreat said – and schedule yours for this year.  We will be back in Costa Rica for our Retreat at the end of the year – I think it is going to be an annual event.

In 2018 we restructured our entire training program to include our newest, tested and proven protocols.  The beginning level of TFT, Algorithm Level, is now a one-day class and available in both live and online certification courses.    In the past, the intermediate, or Diagnostic level was only taught at a live event.  It is now available as an online certification course in addition to live events.  These changes have not only updated the protocols but have made it possible for so many more to reach an advanced level of training in TFT.

What level of training, online or live, is best for you?

I frequently get asked, where do I start…  For this reason, I did a brief video explaining our training and self-help materials.  CLICK HERE to watch this if you are wondering what is best for you.

Last year we saw the launch of several new tools for everyone, practitioners and the public alike, to learn and use TFT.  Our popular and successful Well-Being Mentoring Series of webinars was informative and fun for all.  We are continuing this year and at an even lower cost to attendees.  Click here to see what is on this year’s Mentoring Series Calendar.

Our mentoring series and healing retreats have shown us the importance of self-healing and self-empowerment.

With this goal in mind, we created our new TFT Self-Testing and treating video class, We Are at Choice.  It empowers us to help ourselves with many of life’s daily challenges, specifically identifying blocks to healing and even toxins.  When we can test what is in our highest and best good – we make more informed choices and can significantly improve our well-being.  For more info click here.

What Can I Do with My Training Skills?

Now that I have mentioned the many ways you can learn TFT, what can you do with what you learn?  I want to share a sampling of examples that our students at the various levels have achieved.  They have helped their families and friends, and practitioners have improved their results with their existing clients.  They have found TFT to be an excellent tool to complement their live’s and practices.

Algorithm Certification Online Training:  a sampling of results

This example is particularly relevant now as we approach Valentine’s Day.  Love and our relationships or lack thereof are on the minds of many.

The case is presented in the standard format required for certification, demonstrating a clear use and understanding of the principles learned in the algorithm course.

This client will be referred to as client BW.

A brief history of the client and their problem – age, sex, presenting condition, relevant circumstances, etc.

Client BW is a 30-year-old male presenting with trouble in intimate relationships due to unresolved trauma. BW reports having a significant other in his past who passed away suddenly in a car accident that he has never been able to overcome. BW struggles in intimate relationships with females after this incident and reports putting up “walls” with others emotionally. BW also had another girlfriend later who also passed away suddenly from a staph infection she obtained at a gym. Needless to say, this client is terrified of getting close to another woman and states “I won’t get close to anyone because in my mind they will be gone eventually. I can’t stand the pain again.” BW stops himself from moving forward with a romantic relationship because of his fear of losing another partner.

The algorithms you chose to use and why.

I began with the trauma algorithm to assess for a reduction in distress then followed up with the PR and complex trauma algorithm after finding that there needed to be an elevated intervention implemented.

Baseline and intermediate SUD(s):

Baseline SUD was rated as a 9/10. After completing steps 1-5 of the simple trauma algorithm the new SUD was only an 8. BW performed a psychological reversal and attempted the simple trauma algorithm once more, which resulted in no change in distress. We then moved onto the complex trauma algorithm.

The occurrence of PR (if any) – how you knew it was present and at what level:

See above – the client only reduced in his distress by 1 point and then did not make any reduction in his stress after the PR.

Final SUD(s):

Clients SUD level dropped from an 8 down to a 2. We then completed the 9 gamut treatments where his distress dropped to a 1. BW then performed the floor to ceiling eye roll to ensure completion of this algorithm.

Any identifiable toxin problems and how you resolved them?

Client struggles with eating a lot of fast food and feeling “lethargic” and having a low mood afterward. BW often gets into a cycle of apathy, fatigue, and laziness due to his lifestyle that results in little motivation to change his patterns. BW was educated to keep a journal of the things he eats and how he feels afterward to monitor what is shifting his low mood and drop in energy. BW also uses Downy and dryer sheets which he was educated on the toxicity levels in these products. BW plans to discontinue the use of both and look into organic options that will not be harmful to his emotional recovery and wellbeing.

Your own comments on the case described:

I’m finding it interesting how many toxins people are exposed to on a daily basis. They have no idea how this could be contributing to their inability to heal in different aspects of their lives.

The next example, also from our algorithm course, is very relevant to both practitioners and families as bullying and low self-esteem are very common concerns in today’s world.  Again, this case follows the required case format.

This client will be referred to as “MW”

A brief history of the client and their problem – age, sex, presenting condition, relevant circumstances, etc.

Client MW is a 28-year-old female presenting with low self-esteem related to childhood traumatic events of bullying by her peers. Client reports memories as far back as being 9 years old and not feeling accepted by others, repeated failed relationships and friendships, and trouble in her work due to feelings of low self-worth/self-esteem.

The algorithms you chose to use and why.

I had MW complete the Complex Trauma / Rejection / Love Pain / Grief algorithm due to her self-esteem being related to traumatic memories from childhood and adolescence that resulted in feelings of rejection and the need for acceptance and love.

Baseline and intermediate SUD(s):

MW’s baseline SUD was reported as an 8 and fell to a 6 after initial algorithm.

Final SUD(s):

MW reported feelings of anger coming up for her through these memories after tuning into the thought field. I had her repeat the above sequence for complex trauma with rejection/love pain followed by tapping on her little (pinky) finger for feelings of anger, then the 9-gamut sequence, followed up by repeating the initial tapping sequence.

MW then reported her SUD as a 1 stating “I feel lighter” and “I almost can’t visualize the pain anymore. This problem has brought tears to my eyes for decades. I have always felt so ridiculous for allowing childhood bullying to affect me so deeply but it’s like it never happened now. I can finally move on.”

Any identifiable toxin problems and how you resolved them?

MW reports using Tide and Bounty at home for her laundry needs and plans to switch to Arm and Hammer.

Your own comments on the case described:

It was very interesting to see the extremes in emotional responses when initially having MW tune into the traumatic thoughts of her past and seeing them change in intensity. MW went from tears of pain and sorrow to tears of happiness and relief.

Reflecting on the above cases, the skills that were learned in our one-day online algorithm course has significantly changed the lives of these people.  Imagine, how our world would be if we all had these tools to assist our families and friends, at the time of the trauma or event.  What if these individuals had been able to heal their losses or overcome the bullying when it happened?  How different might their lives have been?

Diagnostic Level Certification Online Training:  a sampling of results

While the algorithm level of TFT is highly successful, there are times when our lives, challenges, and circumstances are complex and require specific tapping sequences and identification of blocks to healing.  Also, the toxins that are hindering us may not be clearly apparent and we need to identify them specifically and neutralize them.  These cases are where the TFT Diagnostic process becomes important.  In fact, this is where all TFT started.  It is this process from which all the algorithms and powerful protocols were developed.

The next case clearly demonstrates the power of diagnosing a specific sequence for complex family issues.  Standard algorithm patterns would not have reached the same result.

Client:  B  Female          Age 45

Presenting condition: Anger.     Sub cat: Stress, sadness, Frustration.

Remedy: Diagnostics

Comments: client B came to me feeling very angry as 2 months ago her 13yr old boy said that he wanted to live with his dad in Manchester. Client B lives approximately 4hrs away in London. She felt a lot of anger towards her own mother as she hadn’t contacted her to see if she was ok or to offer her any support. 2 days before this treatment her mother left a voice mail for client B asking her to get in touch. She said she cannot bring herself to speak to her as she knows it will end up in a big argument.

I asked client B if she also wanted to address the pain surrounding her son leaving as I felt this could be the root of the problem, but she declined saying that “she wasn’t ready” she said she only wanted to address the anger, sadness, and frustration surrounding her mother.

Baseline Sud: 9

The client was a little emotional when we started treatment.

We followed the diagnostic protocol where found a specific holon ( E, OE, Rib )

I identified that the client had a specific reversal which was treated.  The client also had a mini-reversal which was treated.

Intermediary SUD: which was now a 2

Tested and proceeded with (ER)

Final Sud – 1.

My comments/outcome: After treatment client was smiling and said how surreal it felt with all previous negative emotion gone in 10 minutes. She said she now felt ready to have a conversation with her mother and felt comfortable with being able to express how she feels without getting angry, upset or losing her temper. I gave the client her treatment sequence to use if she felt that she needed it on the lead up to the conversation with her mother.

Follow up:  Client B had a conversation with her mother on the phone shortly after initial treatment. She said it was “pleasant” and felt totally in control of her emotions. She also said she feels ready to treat the problem surrounding her sons move away and has booked in another session next week.

Financial worries are a huge concern for many people most anywhere in the world.  Worries range from extreme poverty to a desire to be financially independent.  The ability of TFT diagnosis allows one to address all the many complexities of financial worries and the dynamics they create within our families and relationships from anger, guilt, depression and even OCD.  The following case is an excellent example of this.

Client:  Client C             Female age 31

Presenting condition: Anxiety, stress    Sub cat: Worry, OCD, anger, depression, guilt.

Remedy: Diagnostics

Comments: client C struggling with her day to day life because her husband’s work is irregular meaning there is a lot of stress and worry around their finances. She constantly lives in fear of him not having enough work and when those moments come, she struggles to generally operate and communicate with her husband. I asked client C when the first time she remembers feeling these emotions and immediately she pinpointed when it was. She was pregnant with her second child and during that pregnancy she had Hyperemesis gravidarum. Client C was and still is self-employed. This condition kept her bedridden for around 2 months and she couldn’t work. Client C explained how she was usually a strong and very independent woman. she was always the breadwinner in her marriage. When she couldn’t work, she felt that she not only lost all independence and control over her life, but it was also now up to her husband to cover the financial side of things and bring in enough money to the household. This caused great anxiety. She explained that she had become quite controlling of situations and was aware that she had traits of OCD in her behavior. She commented “I do what I do so I never feel out of control again”  I decide to treat this.

Starting SUD 10.  Using diagnosis, I found the holon of – (th,eb,G) throughout the process of finding the above she was very upset with lots of tears. Once I completed treatment with her full sequence she was shell shocked and then started crying again. This time tears of joy and disbelief that this emotion had finally gone.

I knew there would be other layers to this problem. Then I asked for other worries about the presenting condition. She said it was the fear of never getting straight with finances.

Intermediate SUD:  for this was usually a 9 but she said she couldn’t get over a 6. Again I used TFT diagnostics and found a new specific holon (tapping sequence) and I found reversals at levels 2 and 4 which were corrected and then retested. All fine.  Proceeded with the diagnostic process, tested and finished a Final SUD of 0.

Her full treatment took just over an hour. The client had noticeably changed. It was an emotional rollercoaster from tears of despair to tears of joy. Client C was particularly interested in what each tapping point which was found represented. When I gave her this info, she found it very insightful and could actually link those emotions to the actual thoughts she was having. Eg having to dip into her children’s savings to pay for stuff (guilt)

Follow up:

This was the most profound and powerful treatment that I have done yet and the one that I got the most from. I spoke with this client on the phone a few days ago and she feels amazing. The OCD has subsided, her stress and worry levels have dropped significantly and now she says that she has more clarity of mind when thinking about the original problem even stating that she can now see how she used to “overreact when it wasn’t even that bad.

The last case is a fun one to share.  We all want to help our children ease their fears.  This is a perfect example of how a simple tapping can improve their quality of life, with less fear.

Client C:  My 6-year-old daughter

She has found it very amusing the last few months watching me tap myself whilst studying the course.  We were talking one day and I explained to her that I need to do one more case study for my course and I asked her if she has anything she is scared of?  At first, she said “no” but I am Katie’s Dad so I do know that she is very frightened of spiders, even to the point she would not enter or stay in a room if she knows one is there and she would not go to the bathroom in our house alone in case she sees one.  I also know that she has only had this fear for the past couple of years.

I asked her if she would like to not be scared and to hold a spider? She let out a little scream and jumped up saying “no I don’t want to hold a spider” So, this was obviously a good sign that this would be a good fear for us to work with. I explained that she wouldn’t have to hold the spider if she didn’t want to but we could at least try and she agreed to see if we could help her.

First, I selected the algorithm we were going to use (a-e-c for spiders) and then I turned to Sud scale for children in my folder and explained how it worked and asked her to really think about holding the spider and show me what face that was a good representation of how she felt.  Katie pointed to number 6 and I then showed her where she needed to tap (a-e-c) I then showed her where she would need to tap for the 9 gamut. I did notice that her stress levels had gone down already but I was aware that she wasn’t really thinking about the spider at this time so I did not ask her for a SUD reading yet. I asked her to

think again about me taking a spider and putting it in her hand. I sat mirroring her and showed her where to tap (a-e-c) and she did this for the complete algorithm I was reminding her to keep thinking about the spider.  When we were finished I asked her to give me a SUD reading again and she quickly answered it’s still a 6.

I had noticed that she was not looking visibly distressed as she was before when I was reminding her to think about holding the spider but I also thought she may be reversed so I did not say anything and just asked her to do tap the pr spot on the side of her hand and we repeated the major tapping sequence and I asked for her SUD reading again which she said was now a 3 so we did the 9 gamut with her mirroring me and she still had to think about holding the spider. I was expecting her to be laughing or giggling but she did not and when we were finished I asked her a point at the face on the SUD scale that matched how she was feeling now and she pointed at number 0 and 2 so we did the floor to ceiling eye roll while tapping the gamut spot and then I knew she was ready to progress to the next step so I asked her if she wanted to walk around the house with me looking for some spiders (she said yes) and when I found one I took it in my hand and told Katie to stand on the stairs as I was going to take a photo of her holding the spider and that she should be careful when holding the spider so that she didn’t hurt it.

I then passed her the spider and she looked perfectly ok about holding it. The spider did not want to stay in her hand and it ran up her arm a little and Katie was still ok with this.

We then took the photo and Katie was very happy as she proudly went to tell my wife “Mummy I’m not scared of spiders anymore” and “can I hold another one Daddy” This made me feel extremely happy and so far Katie has not reported any more fear of spiders. I did not see any need to do collarbone breathing and I did not think she may have been exposed to any toxins.

I would like to say on a personal note that I was very surprised how easy it was to work with a child (especially my own). I am a trained hypnotherapist and it would have taken a lot more effort and time to treat Katie and I believe she would have found it more difficult to concentrate and keep still.

I’ve attached the photo that we took of Katie with the spider. The spider would not stay in her hand for very long so it’s actually under her arm and she was still ok with this. I would say great success.

As you can see from these brief examples, we can make significant changes and improvements in our lives and those of others from what we learn in our TFT training courses.
