"I have now had an opportunity to examine in depth EFTUniverse's Levels 1, 2, and 3 training programs, including participation in some of the events, and I am impressed with its professionalism, compassion, and effectiveness. If you are not already a psychotherapist, this relatively brief training program will of course not make you one, but it will teach you how to use this important procedure and many of the subtleties of its application very well."
