Sue Beer lives, breathes and dreams. She has a busy private practice in London, UK and is co-founder of The EFT Centre with Emma Roberts offering Level 1, 2 and 3 trainings, specialist trainings in trauma and sexual abuse, cancer, fertility, weight – as well as the personal transformation workshops, ‘Healing the Addicted Heart: 5 Stages of Transformation’, and ‘Opening to Love’.
Sue and Emma hosted and presented at the first truly international EFT Masterclass in London. The event was a huge success and inspiration to many people from all over the world. This intrepid pair also sponsors joint events in London with Carol Look, Steve Wells and David Lake.
Sue is a specialist in working with addictions and personal transformation. She has a deep understanding of addictive processes and how to become free of them. Her joy is in helping people reclaim their power and their ability to really love – life, themselves and one another! These are the themes of her work with ‘Healing the Addicted Heart’ and ‘Opening to Love’.
“There are many of us now doing fascinating and important work with EFT and opportunities like this to meet and share, learn and laugh together are vital. I am so looking forward to meeting old and new friends.”
Emma Roberts is based in London, UK and is a full time EFT practitioner and trainer. She is co-founder of The EFT Centre in London with Sue Beer, offering a wide range of EFT trainings from Level 1 – 3 and specialist trainings in the fields of Sexual Abuse and Trauma, Addictions ( Healing the Addicted Heart, The Five Stages of Transformation), Cancer (Living with Cancer), Opening to Love, Fertility and Weight Loss. Emma was the co-organiser of the very successful first EFT Masterclass in London gathering a variety of international EFT Masters together to showcase their new work with EFT. She and Sue also host events with popular presenters Carol Look’, Steve Wells and Dr David Lake.
Emma along with Sue Beer runs regular evening group EFT sessions in Central London using Borrowing Benefits as a means of allowing a greater population to really experience EFT working for them, and getting it out there! Emma believes that EFT is a practical tool to be shared with everyone. This belief of sharing EFT is at the core of all her work.
Emma has a full time EFT practise in South West London. She runs a clinic at Westover House Medical Practise specialising in treating fertility issues with EFT as part of a fully integrated team of medical and complementary health practitioners. She also works at Breast Cancer Haven, a charity involved in the support and healing of anyone suffering from breast cancer, offering group workshops and individual sessions.
When she originally began working in the fields of both fertility and cancer Emma believed that EFT would be primarily useful in managing the stress responses to the different diagnoses. Now experience would dictate that the possibilities of working with EFT are more far reaching than she ever imagined. She is passionate about her work, and so excited, as she gets to witness miracles on a near daily basis. We really don’t know what is possible!
Emma also specialises in the highly sensitive area of sexual abuse and trauma. She believes that EFT is the missing link in fully resolving these past issues and allowing us to move forward in our lives in a whole new way. It is a very gentle and safe way of working, and the work itself is both beautiful and transformational for both client and therapist. It is a joy to witness.
In the world of EFT, it is clear that those of us who teach this technique have come to do so because of the profound effect it has had in our own lives. I am no exception to this, as my own experience prior to EFT was full of physical and emotional disease, as with so many people today. Through the gift of those who shared with me these techniques, I gradually found the health, confidence and abundance that is now my life’s experience. EFT has changed my relationships with everyone and everything around me.
EFT has renewed my sense of joy, mystery and purpose in life.
As one who now teaches this unique and powerful tool, I have come to realize that service to others is a fundamental human act. From assisting healing in the lives of friends and family, to the many people that I’ve worked with as a therapist, to the hundreds of people who have attended my courses, I am reminded daily that my service in teaching EFT spreads further outward through those I teach.
This knowledge and the confirmation I have from witnessing how the principals of EFT, time and time again, produce astounding results, make me feel truly blessed that I am part of an amazing process.
Now as an established EFT practitioner and trainer, I am in the fortunate position to be amongst the few EFT Masters worldwide, who have collectively taken on the role of being ambassadors of this incredible self help and therapeutic tool.
Through monthly practitioner courses in the UK and internationally, my passion is to share EFT. Not only to existing practitioners and therapists, such as NHS professionals, Hypnotherapists, NLP’ers, Councillors, Psychologists, Cognitive behavioural therapists and many other conventional, alternative and complementary therapists, but to all who want to help themselves and those close to them to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
In addition to offering EFT practitioner levels 1, 2 and 3, I also teach a unique EFT speciality which focuses on serious physical and emotional issues, with the aim to help individuals not only learn why they have become ill, but to give them the tools to take back responsibility for our own health and healing.
If you feel you need more information on this compelling, self-help technique and wish to discuss how EFT can help you, please contact me or attend a course to see first hand these simple but highly effective techniques.

As an EFT Master Rue has extensive experience with fibromyalgia, chronic physical and emotional pain, abuse, trauma, and working with the issues that arise in a highly sensitive person. She believes that anyone with a chronic condition probably has a sensitive temperament. She is also very interested in using EFT to transform the “emotional inheritance” that is passed through generations in a family, showing up in our limiting beliefs, behaviors and symptoms.
Rue has been in private practice as an Intuitive Mentor/life path coach since 1986 using what she describes as “profoundly light-hearted strategies for unsticking stuck stuff.” She now lives in Colorado.
A former university teacher, over the years she has sought out broad and deep training in psycho-spiritual philosophy and therapies. From 1974-1981, she was a staff member of the Findhorn Foundation, an international center for spiritual and holistic education in Scotland.
Rue says: “I have always felt deeply challenged to learn about my own spiritual truth, independent of what other people said were the prerequisites for spiritual progress. I experience the empowerment of spirituality as support for our ordinary lives in the world, finding the sacred in the personal, not just the transpersonal. In my work with EFT, this translates into exploring and transforming the source of the ‘not enough and don’t deserve’ self-judgments in human consciousness, and into trusting our bodies and emotions as our intuitive guidance. I think of myself as a Wise Woman in (perpetual) Training, seasoned with a grounded thoughtfulness and a quirky sense of humor.”
Rue uses EFT to partner co-creatively with people in a way that invites healing from the deepest levels of identity. She looks forward to connecting with you!

Gwyneth Moss lives and teaches EFT in the lovely countryside of Yorkshire in the North of England. Her skill is as a communicator and her joy is in seeing others build competence and confidence in using EFT. Whether through one-to-one therapy, training workshops or leading EFT groups she loves to share her EFT skills with story and metaphor. Her practical manner is one that others can easily absorb and make their own. Gwyneth’s have gone on to take EFT into prisons, schools and hospitals and some to develop their own practice and style with EFT.
An EFT Founding Master since January 2006, Gwyneth loves the opportunity to spread the word of EFT far and wide. She enjoys coming to America having lived for three years in New Jersey. She came again to the states and contributed to the Master’s panels at Gary Craig’s EFT Bootcamp in Denver. She came again to participate as one of the Master therapists at the Atlanta EFT Retreat. She was excited to return to Denver for the Master Showcase. Gwyneth says: “I Americanise really easily, as soon as I cross the Atlantic my vocabulary adapts and I love the boundless enthusiasm and energy of the EFT folks I meet in the US.”
Gwyneth has a Cambridge physics degree and an MBA. She seeks to use her scientific background and communication skills to translate the science of our brains and the universe into plain English. She does this in a way that we can all relate to and apply in our lives and our work. In October 2006 she presented the highly praised “Tapping, Trauma and the Brain” presentation at the International EFT Masterclass in London. She then set herself the objective of communicating understandings from neuroscience, the effect of trauma on the brain and how that informs our work with EFT without using one single long Latin word. Ask her about the “Inner Dog” and she will help you to understand your brain structure and how better to relate to yourself.
Gwyneth will show us how she uses ‘Imagineering’ in her EFT work. Imagineering is a technique that combines EFT with our right brain’s love of metaphor and imagery to work with physical symptoms. This technique enables us to approach the emotional roots in an indirect and non-threatening manner.
Based at Eastbourne in the United Kingdom, Paul Lynch and his wife Val are probably best known for their success in collapsing phobias. They have been invited to demonstrate their skills live on UK television, and have been featured in The Times and Daily Mail. Their excellent book Emotional Healing in Minutes remains one of the most popular self-help guides to EFT available today.
Paul finds his background in holistic counselling and NLP helps him bring a new dimension to his EFT work. He’s been able to study at close quarters the palpable benefits of EFT for all kinds of people suffering from a range of emotional problems – everything from phobias to women’s issues (in which Val has a special interest).
Paul also has a particular interest in the long-term application of EFT for complex emotional problems. As he says: “It’s a bit like unpicking a Persian rug, thread by thread. It takes time, persistence and above all, patience. But for the determined, committed EFT practitioner, there’s a lot to learn and a lot to gain in terms of understanding just how powerful EFT can be.”
Now, as a result of the interest stimulated by his presentation The Colour of Pain at the EFT Masters’ Conference in London in 2006, Paul is delighted to be invited to Denver to demonstrate, with the aid of volunteers, how we can use this simple technique to identify and neutralise the root causes of physical pain.

She loves teaching EFT, leading others to an in depth understanding of the EFT tools. Her EFT Level 1, 2 and Level 3 classes are fast paced, entertaining and highly effective in assuring all attendees have a positive and meaningful experience in addition to thoroughly understanding the material.

As one attendee stated: “Ann and Jaqui work so beautifully together with seamless joy and love with tireless time and energy for each and everyone of us. Their skill and warmth encouraged us to go to Hidden depths while keeping us safe. And, all this with a group most of whom had never met before and came from diverse ages and backgrounds. Hurrah!”
Jaqui’s background as a teacher and hypnotherapist means that she loves sharing her knowledge in a lighthearted way that makes learning easy and fun. She was a popular presenter at the Energy Psychology conference in Brighton in 2003 and the EFT Masterclass in London in 2006.

Maggie’s passion is to help people reclaim their lives as authentic, abundant, Infinite Beings. She returned “home” to Australia in June, 2006, after living and teaching EFT in the U.S. for 4 years. During her stay in the US she attended all of Gary Craig’s EFT and Serious Disease conferences. She feels that EFT practitioners owe it to their clients and workshop participants to continue taking the work deeper and deeper for themselves. She says, “We can only work with our clients in their fear and trauma to the extent we have explored our own fears and traumas.”
Maggie taught Level 1, 2 & 3 EFT trainings throughout the United States & Australia. She recently retired from teaching responsibilities and turned the baton over to her students. She always kept her trainings small and personal so that participants can get all their questions answered and receive the individual attention they deserve to truly learn EFT. Workshop participants and clients often comment on Maggie’s ability to get quickly and gently to the core issue, as well as her compassion, sense of humour and high degree of intuitiveness.
She developed a workshop called “Your Wish Is My Command” based on GCs Palace of Possibilities and concepts from the movie, The Secret. Maggie says, “The Secret is a great movie for giving us concepts on how to move into new realities. It is EFT, though, that clears the path to those realities.”
Maggie presented, “Inner Dialogues with EFT” at the EFT Masters Showcase in Sydney. Inner Dialogues works to bring our relationship with our various parts and our bodies into balance.
Barbara Smith passed away in 2018, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease. Barbara was very instrumental in expanding the knowledge of EFT throughout New Zealand. Her students are carrying on her work. Prior to retirement she had a thriving psychotherapy practise in New Zealand, dividing her time between personal consultations, long term and emergency trauma relief, and approved content EFT trainings at all levels. She worked to have EFT thrive in New Zealand. She was dedicated to providing custom designed in-house EFT trainings and professional supervision for health providers, as well as coaching for sport, business, and personal performance.
She was passionate in her drive to make EFT accessible and effective, in a way that will honour the unique NZ culture and meet legislative requirements for good health practise in New Zealand. She furthered this process in her counselling and trauma relief work for the Accident Compensation Commission, NZ Victim Support,and other Government welfare agencies.
Barbara was experienced in trauma recovery as a Specialist Trauma counselor. She was trained first in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing, then in Hakomi somatic trauma resolution, and a range of body-mind techniques. She kept informed about current brain research. “When we update old theories with our ever expanding understanding of brain function, then add EFT to the mix,” she said, “We can free people from their trauma more quickly and safely than ever before.”
Another area of expertise she enjoyed was working with children and families. Her goal is to ensure that children have such a good experience of EFT that they will be spontaneously using EFT for years to come, when they sit down to study, pick up the fractious baby, begin a golf game, take pain medication, or are tempted to raise a hand in anger.
Barbara was “delighted to be participating in the first Masters Showcase in the Southern hemisphere (Sydney). In her presentation she shared how (her then) seven years of EFT transformed her psychotherapy and counseling practice. “There is always more to learn,” Barbara said in her marketing information about the Showcase. “When dedicated and skilled EFT people work together there is dramatic personal growth, change, and transformations that regularly take place .”
Barbara was right then and is right now. She always encouraged people to keep learning. When I (Ann Adams) came to New Zealand to teach EFT she also sponsored a training event for her students. New Zealand – and I – miss her.

Judy Byrne, BA (hons) psychology
Judy Byrne is passionate about spreading the EFT word to people to help them to change their lives. One of her particular interests is how we can use EFT for inner peace in the now. Her work with clients often revolves around either helping people who have learned EFT and feel stuck in the work they are doing on their own to move on. She also sees clients who want to clear out all the old negative stuff and start to live the way they really want. Judy has considerable experience of working with major early traumas such as sexual, physical and emotional abuse. She has a particular interest in how early traumas, even those that seem minor through adult eyes, can have so profound an influence on what we believe about and how we experience ourselves and our lives.
Her current work includes private therapy face-to-face and by phone, group therapy for disordered eating, themed workshops and EFT. Judy takes her classes on the road with EFT retreats by the sea and approved trainings in tropical Queensland, Australia.
She lived many years in London, offering Level 1, 2 and 3 trainings and specialty workshops on topics such as using EFT with the law of attraction, for optimum wellness, for weight and eating problems, self-esteem, pain and serious illness. She moved to Australia to help care for her mother.
She is always delighted to be invited to travel to present trainings or workshops or to groups anywhere in the world. You can find her current programme, read her blog, and see feedback from past participants on www.judybyrne.co.uk.
Judy brings a psychology degree and more than 15 years experience in psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and EMDR to her EFT practice. She is keen to help EFT practitioners who want to deepen and widen the range of their EFT by adding other relevant skills. She organizes trainings offering NLP for EFTers in Australia and basic and advanced counseling skills for EFTers in London.
Peter Graham is passionate about EFT and has been using it in his full time practice in Perth, Western Australia since November 2000. Peter has over thirty years of experience as a counselor. He does private EFT sessions (in person or by phone) and runs Levels 1 to 3 EFT workshops.
Peter works with all emotional issues, including personal problems, stress, relationship issues, unresolved traumas and abuse, phobias and anxiety, anger issues, self-esteem, self-sabotage, performance issues, etc. He uses innovative and creative approaches to open the doors to resolving problems, especially those that are resistant or complex.
He also conducts relationship coaching with individuals and couples. His popular comprehensive relationships skills workshops teach couples the practical skills that are needed to resolve relationship issues such as personal problems, upsets, disagreements, misunderstandings, grievances, etc. He recommends, for increased benefit, that those who are carrying intense or long term emotional pain from earlier relationships or are carrying ‘wounds’ from childhood have private EFT sessions and/or attend EFT workshops.
Peter’s purpose is to facilitate personal and spiritual growth by empowering his clients to be able to resolve their own emotional issues. This includes encouraging them to accept full ownership of their own feelings and emotions (regardless of their origins) and teaching them EFT and how to use it effectively – and to keep on using it. Peter’s approaches include teaching and coaching his clients to be “the observer” of their own negative feelings and thoughts as they arise. Peter recommends Eckhart Tolle’s excellent book: The Power of Now which outline some of these techniques. Becoming an observer of our self is an important skill when we wish to overcome persistent problems.
“EFT is the most flexible and effective technique I have ever used as a practitioner. You can use it on just about anything and it works so consistently. After using EFT for six years full time, I have still not found its limitations or boundaries (unlike every other technique I have ever used). The limitations appear to be only the skill and experience of the person using it. It has also been the most useful and transformational tool I have ever used with my own issues. Thank you, Gary!”
Dr. Inci Erkin
Dr. Erkin lives and practices in Izmir, which is a lovely city near the Aegean Sea in Turkey. She has been a Medical Doctor and a Biochemist for over 30 years and uses EFT extensively in her daily professional and volunteer work.
Many years ago she noted the the paradox: “With many new developments in the medical field with many new drugs and High-Tech medical equipment everyday we still have more unhappy, sick and dissatisfied people. I asked myself, what is going on ? My answer came shortly; we had – within the medical community – forgotten that we are not just a body made up of organ systems, but we do also have a mind and a spirit. EFT is my favorite tool; it is with me everywhere.”
Dr. Erkin is founding member of Clinical Hypnotherapy Society and Enery Medicine Society in Izmir, Turkey. She has a special love for children and does extensive volunteer work for cancer patient children and handicapped children. Dr. Erkin has received several awards for her volunteer work. Her work has been written about in several publications in Turkey.
Dr. Erkin is a public lecturer and writer dedicated to spreading the word about EFT as she sees it as an efficient and important tool not only for her native country of Turkey but for the world. She trains other professionals in Turkey in the use of EFT. Inci Erkin says that she is in love with EFT, because in all the work she is doing, she consistently witnesses the wonders of EFT: “With EFT , I’m like Alice in the Wonderland, where everything is possibleand beyond limits.”
If you have Turkish Clients, Dr. Erkin has offered to assist you with any communication problems.
Maya was born in the Netherlands in 1959. After obtaining her M.A. in German Language and Literature from the University of Utrecht she moved to Canada for two years. Since 1985 she has been living in Germany, in the Greater Cologne area.
She discovered EFT in the spring of 2000 and was immediately fascinated with the method’s change potential. Since then Maya has felt a deep commitment to “spread the word” in the German speaking countries. Her first love is training. As of now, she has trained over 600 individuals in EFT, making her one of the most experienced teachers of EFT in Germany.
In the spring of 2004, she was asked by Gary Craig to assemble a team of experienced German EFT trainers. Together with four American colleagues they were invited to his house in California to lay the foundation of the worldwide standardization of EFT training. Jointly they established the content of what was later called the EFT Training Levels. While Gary no longer endorses any training program his training guidelines still guide EFT certification programs.
In September 2006, after one year of extensive theoretical and practical examination, Maya received the title of “EFT Master”. She was bestowed with an honorary membership in the D.A.CH. Verband für Klopfakupressur e. V.
