Mentoring for EFT Trainers
Mentoring Opportunity for EFTi Trainers and Trainers of Trainers with Jade Barbee and me in 2023.
Following the recommendation that at least three hours of our annual EFT mentoring requirements are spent addressing trainer specific questions, Jade Barbee and I are holding mentoring space for Trainers to celebrate and share what works, ask questions and reflect on what calls for review and improvement within a collegial and supportive environment where each participant has a voice. We are offering real whole person professional development.
Jade Barbee and I are seasoned Trainers of Trainers and we invite you to join us in a collaborative journey focused on fostering excellence in EFT education.
We invite you to participate in a reflective space where you can explore, celebrate and share what really works in your workshops and what is calling for your attention. We are working it out together, drawing on everyone's experience, wisdom and unique style. There are many ways to deliver the same outcome.
- Tuesday 9 May 2023 - 6:00pm-8pm (UK time): The 'How' of EFT
How do you present the mechanisms by which EFT work?
In this focussed mentoring session, we'll take a deep dive into how you help students and newer practitioners connect with the 'how' of EFT. What is your understanding of how it works? In other words, in what ways do you build bridges of understanding so that students can connect with the material you're presenting (Levels 1, 2 and 3), and how is your approach evolving over time? How are talking about the science lately in a way that is concise, clear and works within time constraints? How do your demonstrations help your students learn the important components of successful EFT?
Let's explore how we 'teach the mechanics of tapping’, and what best-practices we can highlight, together.
- Tuesday 11 July 2023 - 6:00pm-8pm (UK time): Mentoring for Certification and Beyond
What does mentoring mean to you? Are there ways we can approach building mentoring programs that serve our practitioner-candidates (or existing practitioners) better? How do you structure your mentoring for certification? What’s working well? What are some of the challenges you’re experiencing? Is there a configuration (group or individual, condensed or longer-term) that seems to work better for you?
We would love to hear your thoughts on best-practices – especially around mentoring in general. Why is it important to EFT practice? How has it been important to you? What have been some of your mentoring experiences as a student, practitioner or trainer? What frustrates you, and what keeps you going as a mentor?
We look forward to digging-in to this topic, hearing your experiences and ideas, and finding pathways for your continued success as trainers and mentors.
Always, bring any of your EFT Trainer-related questions to our calls, and we'll do our best to integrate these into our conversation.
Together we will be:
- Creating a reflective space to support best practice
- Exploring training techniques
- Discussing the importance of maintaining student engagement and support
- Discovering solutions for classroom challenges
- Sharing observation, assessment and encouragement skills
- Developing effective feedback techniques
- Providing each other with assistance and nourishment
- Establishing a community of professional and transformative Educators
Meet my colleague Jade who co-facilitates these sessions with me:
Jade Barbee is an experienced EFT Practitioner, Trainer and Mentor. He’s been in professional practice since 2006 and an EFT International Trainer and Mentor since 2010. He has a unique perspective on tapping and sees it primarily as an artform – a creative approach we can use to allow ourselves and our clients to ‘have’ their feelings and thoughts. He believes when we cultivate a willingness to allow our difficulties (and stop fighting them), they naturally evolve. He loves bringing this perspective to his trainings as well. His website is emotionalengine.com.
Having recently attended Martine's and Jade's mentoring session for EFTi Trainers and EFTi Trainer of Trainers, I feel drawn to share my experience of the session. It was a wonderful melting pot of ideas, enthusiasm, dialogue, support, community and more. I loved the safety of the space in which we were invited to dive deep into the nitty gritty of training challenges and successes. Priceless. Thank you Martine and Jade"

I just wanted to reach out to thank you both for the highly effective mentoring session you offer EFTI Master Trainers. Before our two-hour session, I was feeling very much in the weeds of MT best practice. Afterward, I was happy to know I shared challenges with my fellow trainers, empathized with their experiences with similar problems, and benefited from your and their generosity in sharing great solutions. I’m delighted to be a part of this group and already feel inspired to create trainings and classes knowing support for my endeavours is just an email or Zoom link away."
