Using EFT with Children

How can EFT be used with children?

Many EFT practitioners have a yearning to work with children, but are not sure where to begin.

Working with children using EFT can be rewarding and endlessly surprising. Most children will have shifts in emotions at almost the speed of light but there are many considerations when working with children.

This workshop is aimed at working with children aged from 4 to 11 years.

During this workshop you will have an opportunity to:

  • Understand any legal considerations around working with children (based on the UK)
  • Consider how to build rapport with the parent(s)/caregiver, before, during and after sessions
  • Learn some of the most common issues with which children may present
  • Give thought to the best place to conduct EFT sessions with children, and the type of equipment that you may want to have available
  • Learn how to teach children to regulate their own emotions
  • Gain ideas into how to structure a session with a child, and props that can be used
  • Experience Picture Tapping first hand, with instructions, a demo and a group exercise
  • Exchange ideas on how to work with children (or parents) who are skeptical about EFT
  • Obtain a list of useful resources

Thanks to Mary-Jane and Ivana for a wonderful, informative workshop that has given me lots of tools and food for thought! You have shared so much knowledge in a simple and easy to digest way and as always, focused on how we can use your suggestions practically and individually for different clients. This workshop is packed full of ways to work with children and parents as well as handholds for some of the places we can trip up! Great resources too.


The Using EFT with Children course was the most amazing course aimed at working with children. It truly opened a world of how to connect with children and help them to process and move through emotional blocks with tapping. The match of Mary-Jane and Ivana’s wisdom is a match made in heaven and the knowledge they imparted is so valuable. I really feel ready, inspired and enthusiastic to begin using EFT with children and the after-care and support is invaluable. If you’re looking for a course to fully give you the confidence to work with children this one has to be at the top of your list. Ivana's compassion and empathy in all she shares is beautiful and Mary-Jane’s love and knowledge of EFT is just priceless, thank you both, I hope you do another as I loved it so much.
