Testimonials for EFT Certification Intensive

Thank you Beth and Michelle for the EFT Certification Intensive. More than a training… it was an experience. I can’t say enough wonderful things about the way in which Beth and Michelle teach EFT. Their workshops are always fun, informative, and interesting. Both instructors are very warm and extremely safe. Further, they are accommodating, creative, and very helpful. They truly go above and beyond to ensure that everyone has the most positive and uplifting experience.

~Devon, San Diego

Thank you both so much for offering the EFT Certification Intensive. What a gift to anyone on the certification path. It now feels within reach. It was so helpful to see the “certified” Stage 1 and Stage 2 tapes, to see what a complete binder that was submitted looks like, to review all the requirements thoroughly and to hear what to include or not include in the tapes. It was a lovely, intimate group as well as in a setting that made it such a pleasure. Your generosity, support and kindness were present throughout the day. Thank you for supporting and believing in us!

~Laura, SF Bay Area

I am so glad I took the EFT Certification Intensive with Michelle and Beth! I left the daylong workshop with a clear understanding of what is needed to move through the EFT Certification process, as well as an actionable plan for getting there. The workshop demystified what has felt like an overwhelming process by laying out exactly what is needed for the application packet, certification tape requirements / recommendations, and items that can be completed before tapes are finalized. I came in feeling anxious about the EFT certification process, and left feeling excited, motivated, and more connected to the great group of therapists and teachers who were there! Thanks again for a great day of learning!

~Sonja, SF Bay Area

Beth and Michelle’s EFT Certification Intensive is a must for anyone committed to learning EFT, whether they plan to be Certified or simply want to become a better therapist. I found it especially helpful to get timely information on what the reviewers were looking for as well as a binder full of details such as examples of cover letter, session transcripts, cycle diagrams and case write ups. I was also thrilled to get EFT Stage 1and Stage 2 Intervention lists (cheat sheets) to keep EFT’s tools and interventions ever-present in my consciousness.

~Mark, San Francisco

Thank you Michelle and Beth for your amazing EFT Certification Intensive! I had lost momentum in the EFT Certification process, and was even wondering if certification was important to me. After your workshop, I feel motivated to find my “certification buddy” and dive in!

You demystified certification for the group, by taking us through the process, step by step. Each part that seemed daunting was addressed, including, of course, the Stage One and Stage Two tapes. It was so helpful to view and dissect tapes that been already been accepted for certification.

I want to say a word, too, about the materials you provided. Your handouts with lists of EFT Interventions are so helpful when I’m looking at my own videotapes. The copies of your certification packets for us to page through were clarifying. More than anything, though, the binder- the binder!- is incredibly helpful. A solid, blow-by-blow treatment of how the EFT Certification process works, and an actual certification packet to refer to (thanks to the generosity of Certified EFT Therapist, Barbara Gabriel)- it’s hard to imagine a more helpful tool. Again, my thanks to you both for organizing such a supportive and generous workshop.

~Carla, Portland, Oregon

Beth and Michelle created a safe, interactive environment for us to consider what our own personal challenges will be as we consider the next steps toward EFT Certification. I came to the EFT Certification Intensive feeling ambivalent about the work involved and I left thinking I can do it!

Please know how much I appreciate your hard work to bring so many amazing workshops to our EFT community! You two are basically amazing.

~Christine, SF Bay Area

Thank you so much Michelle and Beth for the EFT Certification Intensive. It was excellent. It was everything I needed in an organized binder, to know and examples of what to send in for EFT Certification.

I loved seeing throughout the day four different examples of actual certification tapes. I was happy to have mine included. I wish I had something like this before I got certified. It would have simplified the process immensely. The actual copies of the letter, the transcription of the sessions and the interventions they are looking for really demystified the process.

This information will definitely help me to help others become certified when I become a Supervisor Candidate. I also so appreciate the EFT community that was there. I enjoyed meeting therapists from Seattle, Portland and San Diego.

It was truly an enlightening and fun day!

~Barbara, San Francisco

Beth and Michelle created a welcoming, validating, and information filled environment for the EFT Certification Intensive. They are generous with their spirit, time, and materials. The course gave me concrete, useful information AND the courage and knowledge needed to go forward. I no longer feel lost in the process. Thank you Beth and Michelle.

~Anna, Seattle, Washington

Thank you to Michelle and Beth for breaking down the EFT Certification process, providing tools and examples for all that is required, explaining the process and encouraging us to build the support needed to get thru this process. It seems like it’s getting licensed all over again and if I think of it that way, I can appreciate all the work required and the little steps that can be done along the way. You make EFT Certification doable, desirable and rather inevitable. Why not get certified, right?

~Nancy, Los Gatos, California

Amazing experience, Beth and Michelle demystified and supported me towards my goal of certification with this one-day course. They used the heart of EFT to support and educate us through the process of certification in both a concrete way with a well-written workbook, and an experiential way by helping us through the fear of getting organized and started. The day was fun and I walked away with a lot of learning.

~Sheri, Seattle, Washington

Michelle & Beth broke down the EFT Certification process clearly and concisely and the Stage 1 and Stage 2 clips shown, as well as the sample certification packet provided really helped motivate me to finally get certified! The practice clips shown to illustrate all the EFT interventions, as well as all the materials provided give me absolutely no excuse to get this chapter in my EFT journey DONE! The venue at the Inn at the Presidio in San Francisco was beautiful and I felt taken care of, all my questions answered, and safety within the group to process this journey with all. Thank you!

~Kim, San Diego

Kudos to Michelle Gannon and Beth Jaeger-Skigen. Their EFT Certification Intensive took a lot of the mystery out of the certification progress. I wish I had had this training before I applied to become EFT Certified. As a Supervisor-in-training, I look forward to using the knowledge and material I gained at this workshop to help my supervisees in their quest for certification. In addition to providing organized, explicit content, Michelle and Beth also provided a safe place to explore fears, questions and concerns about this process. In my opinion, they struck just the right balance between the content of the material and the group’s process. Thanks so much for working so hard to provide this service to our community!

~Rita, Portand, Oregon

I attended this workshop as a supervisor-in-training, and got just what I had hoped for! Michelle and Beth created a supportive, nurturing container that modeled wonderfully the EFT principles I want to embody as a supervisor.

The training atmosphere felt so comfortable, warm and fun. Yes….fun!

I gained clarity and wisdom around how to help my supervisees get certified and also came away with some fantastic written materials that will really come in handy. Thanks Michelle and Beth!

~Christine, Portland, Oregon

I enjoyed the EFT Certification Intensive very much. It was developed and taught with a great deal of care and thought about what it takes to succeed at EFT Certification: everything from the nuts and bolts to encouragement and support. It was very helpful to see real certification tapes. Overall, it was a really fantastic workshop.

~Sharon, San Jose

I am so glad to have attended Beth Jaegar-Skigen’s and Michelle Gannon’s EFT Certification Workshop. The community of enthusiasts, the supportive conversations about challenges, and the roadmap leading toward the finish line are invaluable. Most importantly they provided a safe environment to ask questions and get answers. They provided a binder that included a checklist of things required, examples of cover letters and case write ups, examples of transcripts and interventions, and many tips for how to produce the best videos. I strongly encourage those people who are toward the end of this arduous and fruitful EFT Certification process to attend their workshop. You will not only experience their wealth of knowledge, but also their warmth, encouragement, and genuine support.

~Lucy, San Francisco

If you want to jump start your EFT Certification process or like me just get out of a rut about it, check out Beth and Michelle’s informative and fun EFT Certification Intensive. In this day long training, you will watch their EFT Certification tapes, get insider trade secrets and step by step tools and tips towards certification that will leave you feeling “I can do this!!” At least it did for me…:- ) Highly recommended!

~Ondina, San Francisco & Sonoma

I feel lots of appreciation for Michelle and Beth’s EFT Certification Intensive. It really helped clarify the certification process and inspire action. I particularly appreciated the safety created, the elucidation of the certification steps, and the action-oriented tasks and plans we were encouraged to make. Seeing 4 videos of sessions successfully used for certification and thereby getting a clearer idea of what ICEEFT is looking for was another gift. I left the EFT Certification Intensive with a plan in hand of next steps to take and a buddy to help me carry them out, so I feel much better prepared for walking the EFT Certification path now. Michelle and Beth are such natural and gifted workshop leaders who, among their many talents, have a remarkable ability to make a room shine with warmth and beauty thanks to their attention to decorative details and tasty treats!

When I signed up for the EFT Certification Intensive Workshop presented by Michelle Gannon, PhD, and Beth Jaeger-Skigen, LCSW, I was imagining that it was primarily for people getting closer to submitting their certification packets. I now see that it is exceptionally worthwhile for people at all stages of EFT study. Michelle and Beth “introduced” us by video to Allison Lee and Gail Palmer at ICEEFT who look at our videos and packets for certification. Allison and Gail warmly welcomed us to the certification process and de-mystifed their roles.

Michelle and Beth provided several examples of the cover letters, case conceptualizations and materials required for submission that will assist us in preparing a higher quality application packet. In dyads, we shared the steps we have already made towards certification and that need to be included. Viewing certified Stage One and Stage Two sessions by several therapists enabled us to understand the range of acceptable videos and different therapist styles. I particularly liked being asked to share and be accountable to another participant for my next steps. In the last task of the EFT Certification Intensive, we were allowed to choose which activity would benefit us the most. Another participant and I chose role play. I had the time to focus on a skill that has been eluding me for far too long and with Michelle’s assistance, I feel like I have made much progress.

And I loved the EFT Social Happy Hour at Arguello after the workshop. Activities like this really help to create community and connection within the profession. As a bonus, we were honored to have Petra and her husband, Theo join us from the Netherlands.

All in all, the EFT Certification Intensive is well worth participation and can be a vital part of your journey to certification.

~Charlie Ruff, MFT
Citrus Heights, CA

Michelle and Beth created this EFT Certification Intensive because they wished they’d had this training when they went through the certification process. I’m so glad they did! They provided a wonderful informative binder full of information about the pre-requisites for certification, the details on the application process, check lists, sample of cover letters and more. We saw 4 tapes by different therapists that had all qualified for certification. It was also a fun and social day letting us meet other certification buddies. There were many participants from California (north and south) but also from other parts of the US and Europe. We all emerged feeling much more clear and confident about the road to certification.

Thanks so much Michelle and Beth!

~Julie T, MFT
San Francisco

Michelle and Beth put together an informative and organized pack of information, provided a supportive environment and shared a number of examples of EFT Certification tapes and case write ups. Having all of this greatly reduced our anxiety about the certification process and I left feeling energized and hopeful. Thank you!

~Marcy Reda, LCSW
Oakland, CA

The EFT Certification Intensive led by Beth and Michelle provided great guidance, clear structure and motivation for taking the necessary final steps in order to become certified. I am very grateful!

~Dr. Mikael Luciak
Vienna, Austria

We appreciated Michelle Gannon and Beth Jaeger-Skigen’s San Francisco EFT Certification Intensive. I feel very motivated and with a clear action plan on how to complete my EFT certification after having fulfilled all requirements a few years ago. I highly recommend this very professional and well-organized course in this beautiful location in San Francisco. And of course Mikael and I enjoyed the happy hour with all the professional and personal exchange. We experienced Bay Area EFT therapists are very open, engaged, and experienced professionals and we look forward to continued international exchange.

With gratitude,
~Claudia Luciak-Donsberger
Vienna, Austria

The one-day EFT Certification Intensive with Michelle Gannon and Beth Jaeger-Skigen was extremely helpful, informative and very supportive and encouraging. First, the value of the day provided me the specifics I needed in order for me to understand and know the certification requirements. Secondly and most important, the seminar provided me the information to feel more comfortable in knowing what is needed for the two taped session requirement. The group was very pleasant and engaging and Michelle and Beth were vibrant and available to help each of us focus on building a personal plan toward certification – thanks Michelle and Beth!

~Jim Powell, MFT
Palm Desert, CA

The EFT Certification Intensive taught by Dr. Michelle Gannon and Beth Jaeger-Skigen was an excellent workshop. I left feeling motivated to move on toward completion of certification. Seeing the tapes that were approved (and particularly in their unedited, ‘caught-in-the-wild’ format) took the mystery out of that piece of the work, and Michelle and Beth’s warm encouragement made the entire certification process feel more like opportunity than inquisition.

I enjoyed (and stayed at) the Inn at the Presidio in San Francisco which is a lovely setting for this type of work–less hotel ballroom and more cozy place you’ll want to return to–and as an out-of-towner traveling on my own, I really appreciated the pre-planned, post-workshop happy hour just a short stroll down the block.

Wherever you are in your pre-certification journey, I can heartily recommend Michelle and Beth’s workshop–it would be a bargain at twice the price.
