Using EFT with Cancer

How EFT can be used with Cancer

For many practitioners of EFT, the prospect of working with people who have a diagnosis of cancer is quite daunting.

Most of us have first or second hand experience of cancer, but our own beliefs and experiences can affect our ability to support clients in a calm manner and maintain detachment from our own experiences.

During this workshop you will have an opportunity to:

  • Use EFT to clear your own anxiety about working with cancer clients
  • Discover how to work gently with clients on the trauma of the diagnosis on themselves and their loved ones
  • Support clients in discussing their diagnosis with family, friends and colleagues
  • Learn how to explore beliefs around self-healing, blame, and their body
  • Develop ways for your clients to self-regulate between sessions as well as prior and during medical appointments and treatments
  • Become familiar with the frequent trigger points for those experiencing cancer
  • Find ways to offer a safe space for clients to express their deepest fears

You may see "Working with Cancer" and think, "Oh, no thank you. That's not my niche!" And, that may be true; but, sadly is a fact of life in the current state of the world. The chances are that no matter your niche, you are going to have a client who gets cancer, had cancer, has a family member with a diagnosis or lost a family member to it. All of these aspects of support are covered in this brilliant workshop. As always, Mary-Jane doesn't just talk or teach, but creates a space for meaningful conversation that leads to ah-ha's of all sorts, deep understanding and maybe even some self discovery! You may not WANT to work with cancer as the corner stone of your practice, but you will probably come across it at some point and Mary-Jane is the perfect person to help you feel prepared if the event it does.

I found the working with Cancer training very informative. It was great that another practitioner has been through Cancer and hearing how working with Mary Jane had really helped. Another thing that really helped as a practitioner is the confirmation that you work with Cancer as you would with anything else, you don't have to be scared by it, you follow your EFT strategies as normal, that me feel a lot better and confident. Mary Jane explained everything well and kept me interested the whole time. I will definitely book more courses with her

I recently attended the Using EFT For Cancer Workshop with Mary-Jane. She delivered a wonderful workshop, with lots of demos, invaluable information, insight and advice as to how we might best support our clients, and their families, through such a challenging time. Mary-Jane also offered advice and information as to how we can best support and look after ourselves too, something practitioners often forget to do!
Mary-Jane held a compassionate, loving, safe space that allowed all of us to feel comfortable sharing any triggers that we experienced during the training. There were lots of tears, but lots of laughter too. I really appreciated the follow up emails, checking in and offering help and support should I have any questions or concerns.
Mary-Jane is a dedicated, gifted, caring trainer, mentor and practitioner, with many years of experience and a wealth of knowledge. I can’t recommend her highly enough!
This wasn’t the first training workshop I’ve taken with Mary-Jane and it certainly won’t be the last. Thank you so much Mary-Jane!
