Whether it’s heights, tests, flying, driving, social interaction, or public speaking, what scares your clients shrinks their lives as they avoid the things they fear.

They come to you for help so that they can be free to make choices, rather than having their fear choose for them.

You want to offer your clients fast, evidence-based, long-lasting relief - and now you can, with Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and related energy psychology tools!

With EFT, you can quickly bring down your clients’ emotional and somatic distress so that they can get back to living their lives without anxiety. Using powerful yet gentle desensitization, you can teach your clients to self-administer effective, step-by-step relaxation that will allow them to be fully present - even when their fear is connected to a previous trauma.

It’s no wonder thousands of therapists already count on EFT for their “go-to techniques” clients overwhelmed by fear and anxiety need when they’re stuck in the moment saying “what do I do now?”

Watch author, researcher, clinician, and EFT International Trainer, Robin Bilazarian, LCSW, DCSW, DCEP, as she expertly covers everything from the basics and foundational language all the way to advanced EFT, tapping, and energy psychology techniques. This highly experiential, neurologically-informed training will cover:

  • Techniques to combine and integrate EFT tapping into talk therapies
  • Simple ways to release your client’s terror to maneuver life enhancing events
  • Steps to quickly dislodge the small “t” or big “t’ traumas that often fuel phobias and performance anxiety.
  • Methods to release physical signs of distress, like sweating, heart palpitations, and more
  • 4 quick ways to release pain
  • And so much more!

Go beyond talk therapy to bring Emotional Freedom Techniques, tapping, energy psychology and more into your practice and feel comfortable applying them with your clients right away!

Robin Bilazarian, LCSW, DCSW, DCEP (Diplomate in Energy Psychology), and International Certified Master EFT trainer Related seminars and products

Robin Bilazarian, LCSW, DCSW, DCEP (Diplomate in Energy Psychology), and International Certified Master EFT trainer, is a brief therapy expert, author and speaker who uses passion and humor to share a wealth of knowledge and her twenty years of experience integrating EFT into mainstream mental health treatment. She is the author of the Amazon best-seller Tapping the Mighty Mind: Simple Solutions for Stress, Conflict, and Pain. Her passion is to bring these rapid, thorough and gentle meridian and cognitive-based techniques into mainstream clinical mental health treatment.

EFT is a well-researched, comprehensive, mind-body treatment that rapidly desensitizes unwanted thoughts, emotions and connected physical reactions. EFT goes beyond supportive counseling and is actual treatment. It’s surprising how quickly turmoil dissipates; clients are usually better in one session -even if the issue is long standing.

Robin obtained her MSW degree from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill and interned at Duke Medical Outpatient Psychiatry. Her more than thirty years of clinical practice includes employment in all levels of mental health treatment, including private practice and using EFT in a community mental health center and with medical staff. She was recruited and worked for fourteen years as an internal Employee Assistance Program counselor, bringing these highly effective, short-term techniques to medical staff and students in a regional trauma hospital. Her trainees also included police, fire fighters, first responders, educators, city workers and others. She ran numerous internal and external EFT workshops, including psychiatric rounds and community conferences. She speaks nationally and internationally on this topic and presents frequently for NASW and Rutgers University. She is a sought-after expert in working with anxiety spectrum disorders.
