Welcome to my web site. Based on over three decades of experience, study and research, I offer a range of services and techniques that effectively address personal issues that most individuals encounter at some time during their lives. This includes Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) workshops and also private (one-on-one) EFT sessions, plus several other effective methods and trainings. The primary purpose of my work and research is to facilitate personal growth & development and to find inner peace. - Peter Graham, certified EFT Master Practitioner and EFT Trainer, experienced Counsellor, and practical Relationship Coach.

The EFT Workshops that will be available: The next Level 1 EFT workshop will be on Sunday, the 30th of SEPTEMBER in a room within the State Library of WA. And, the next Level 2 EFT workshop will be on the 6th and 7th of OCTOBER (the weekend). However, if appropriate, send an email or text to Peter for more information as there might also be a few small groups (for Level 1 and/or 2 workshops) at earlier date(s), including on week-days!
My postal address is: P.O. Box 264, Wembley, 6913, WA. And, my home-office is nearby.
INFO: The term EFT stands for "Emotional Freedom Techniques," but it's often referred to as the "Tapping technique" and sometimes simply just "Tapping." ALSO, notice that the workshops below are not always in a DATE sequence but are influenced by those who want to attend workshop(s).
Introductory Level 1 EFT workshop: The next one-day introductory Level 1 EFT workshop ($175 - or just $45 if re-doing it) will be held on Sunday, the 30th of SEPTEMBER. After entry, there will usually be a checking in at the ground desk, and then go on to the workshop room upstairs. So, it's usually about 1 minute or less each at the front desk (but this can vary), and then go up to the workshop room and start before 10:10 am. And, after the workshop, the end of the day will be around 4:15 to 4:30 pm. Level 1 introduces and teaches the Tapping technique and fundamentals of EFT, and includes practicing and experiencing EFT, and more. It's a great technique and it's very useful for self-applications and can be used to help others.
Foundational Level 2 EFT workshop: The next two-day foundational Level 2 EFT workshop ($350 - or just $95 if re-doing it) will be held on Saturday and Sunday, the 6th and 7th of OCTOBER (the weekend). The Level 2 workshop is exciting and supports some major steps forward. It's worth it. Level 1 and Level 2 are known together as the Foundation of EFT. It's worth to practice and re-do the Level 2 workshop several or more times.
Advanced Level 3 EFT workshop: Those who choose to attend the Level 3 workshop need to have a really good familiarity with the Level 2 workshop first - and know it well. The three-day advanced Level 3 EFT workshop ($450 - or just $145 if re-doing it again) usually has Two Dates plus one more agreed-upon Date for the third-day. Level 3 is mainly a practitioner workshop BUT lay (non-professional) EFT practitioners AND EFT enthusiasts can also attend it!
The one-day very useful and exciting introduction to the Fundamentals of Counselling ($175) takes about 5 to 6 hours. The next workshop is likely to be held near mid-September 2018 (but it can be done prior to that). These basic skills can be VERY useful in all of our lives and especially our relationships and interactions. This training is also strongly recommended for those who are or will be using EFT with others. There are no pre-requisites. Let me know if you are interested in attending it.
And, there is a "down below" option: The EFT workshops mentioned below often have some more useful information, so if you "CLICK" on the underlined link (earlier in this sentence), you can then come back up (straight to here) by just pressing the Backspace Key on the keyboard.
What is EFT? EFT is a valuable tool to have for use in the journey of life. It can be used with others and it can also be self-applied. And, it blends well with many other techniques and modalities.
The main Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) are remarkably effective with emotional clearing that can help to reduce stress, eliminate negative emotions & feelings and systematically dissolve accumulated emotional pain. A fundamental aim is to help people become more functional in life and to expand their comfort zones.
The basic EFT tapping technique includes: tapping on (stimulating) a series of specific tapping points while (at the SAME time) tuning into (or being mindful of) a current emotion, feeling, issue or memory (or similar) and also personally expressing or saying it (at each tapping point).
The basic EFT tapping technique is fairly easy to learn and it can be self-applied and also used with others. The basic tapping technique is gradually learnt and understood and it becomes more and more useable. And, it's a lot of fun.
 A brief Level 1 EFT workshop FLIER includes an overview to EFT, an outline of what EFT is about, plus what can be achieved by applications of it.
 An Introduction to EFT provides an overview of EFT plus some more information and/or reading about it. This includes: An introduction to EFT, EFT endorsements by some well-known authors, an article entitled Emotional Rescue (published in THE AUSTRALIAN newspaper), brief descriptions of the EFT workshops, and also private EFT sessions, asking related questions, plus some more.
 For a deeper and wider understanding of EFT, click on the link for more details about EFT, which looks into what EFT is all about plus a wider description of how and why it works, and more! EFT is not a magic wand. It is a down-to-earth and roll-up-your-sleeves approach that can be used to systematically and effectively work on individual personal issues.
One option is to have one or more private EFT sessions with an EFT practitioner, where you work on a personal problem (or problems) and gradually learn enough of the basic EFT tapping technique to be able to self-apply it. Working with an EFT practitioner is a team activity.
Another option is to learn EFT more deeply by attending the introductory EFT workshop (Level 1) which is a more detailed and practical way to learn EFT and its fundamentals. Some people have one or more private EFT sessions first and then choose to attend a workshop to expand their EFT skills.
The one-day introductory EFT workshop (Level 1) goes a lot further and deeper: You examine the basics of EFT, observe demonstrations, personally experience it, learn and practice using the full EFT technique, using EFT with some other students, learn some simple ways to work with personal issues, get introduced to how EFT is used to reduce a painful experience, and more. Some people re-do Level 1 a number of times and many go on to also attend Level 2 (which improves self-applications and gives you more "tools" to use).
Click on the link to display the workshops Diagram showing the four EFT workshops presented by Peter Graham. Note: The workshops listed below are all advertised, but they are sometimes also held on unadvertised date(s) (such as on a weekend or sometimes during the week) for those who can't attend on the scheduled date/dates.
The next primary one-day introductory Level 1 EFT workshop ($175 - or just $45 if to re-do it) will be held on Sunday, the 30th of SEPTEMBER. And, it starts around 10 AM and ends near 4:15 PM up to 4:30 PM at the end of the day. The workshop introduces and teaches the Tapping technique and learning the main fundamentals of EFT. It includes: practicing EFT with others, self-applying it, personally experiencing it, and more. It's a great technique and very useful for self-applications. This workshop is usually held one time per month, but it sometimes also occurs during a week. LOCATION: Peter Graham will let you know where the next workshop will be held. After this, the next option is to attend the exciting Level 2 workshop. Info: Level 1 can be re-done another time or even a few or lots of times (at only $45 each time).
The NEXT two-day foundational Level 2 EFT workshop (which is $350 or just $95 if re-doing it) will be held on Saturday and Sunday, the 6th and 7th of OCTOBER. This extremely important workshop teaches the core EFT techniques, skills and strategies that make up a solid foundation for deeper and wider applications of EFT. It includes self-applications of EFT and also using EFT with others. And, it's also essential for some who want to gradually become more skilled and some want to become EFT practitioners. A lot of the Level 2 attendees re-do the Level 2 workshop (even if they are only interested in self-applications using EFT) and it's worth re-doing it as it varies a lot with others in sessions. Next venue: It depends on the number of attendees suitably closer to the dates.
The NEXT three-day advanced Level 3 EFT workshop ($450 or just $145 if re-doing it) will be held on two days PLUS one more agreed-upon date. Level 3 is very much a practitioner workshop BUT lay (non-professional) EFT practitioners AND just EFT enthusiasts can also do it. The primary techniques and methods covered in Level 2 need to be practiced and familiarized before attending Level 3 as it's a big step forward and it depends on the foundational Level 2 understandings and skills. DATES: By connection with me and others who also want to do or re-do Level 3, we can then find suitable dates.
The one-day Introduction to the Basics of Counselling workshop ($175) will be about 5 to 6 hours. The next workshop is likely to be held near mid-September 2018. This training is recommended for those who are or will be using EFT with others, BUT it's not limited to that as the basic skills can be extremely useful in our lives and especially our relationships. There are no pre-requisites for it other than a desire to care, help or nurture others. Let me know if you are interested in attending it.
NOTE: The workshops can sometimes also be attended (in a small group) BEFORE an advertised date OR AFTERWARDS at a suitable and agreed upon date, which can be held on a weekend OR during a week-day (for a few attendees).
Bookings and Enquiries:
You can contact him on (08) 9487 8363 for more information or to make a booking (by leaving a clear message and also a very clear Contact Number - and also Repeated).
Note: All of these EFT workshops are held locally in Western Australia, but they can also be held away from Perth central as well as inter-state or overseas (with dates and places arranged with the applicants and with a minimum of numbers required to make it viable).
EFT certifications: At first, there are no Practitioner Certifications after attending and completing the Level 1 EFT workshop. However, there is an Attendance Certificate that is given to each attendant. There are also Attendance Certificates later for Level 2 and also for Level 3.
To become a certified EFT Practitioner, it includes re-studying the Level 1 & Level 2 techniques [and the Level 3 techniques later] and developing the skills by practicing more and also developing some higher requirements and to become skilled enough to be an EFT Practitioner. I supervise such programs (for very reasonable costs) and it's usually spread over 3 to 9 months (in person at times and/or over the phone and/or via emails, etc.) to reach and become a skilled certified EFT Practitioner. NOTE: There is more information about AAMET near the end of this document.
A certified EFT practitioner has done more study and had more practice plus become more familiar with some important specific tests. There are stages towards "becoming an EFT practitioner" (including appropriate meetings and/or phones or emails and/or recordings and/or discussions, and some more). Going through the program, it may include some requirements in a get-together with others on the pathway plus some group practices. After thorough and reasonable work, you can become internationally recognized with AAMET (including passing an AAMET exam overseas) as a certified EFT Practitioner.
I have been an international certified EFT Trainer for over 10 years and have been connected for years with the worldwide AAMET International.
I do private (one-on-one) EFT sessions to help individuals make measurable progress with their personal issues and to expand their comfort zones and become more functional in life. In a nutshell, the primary aim is to effectively facilitate emotional healing and enhance personal growth and development.
A typical time for a session is around 75 minutes (plus or less about 15 minutes). The aim is to end off at a good point (and therefore to not end sessions at a specified time).
A useful motto: "The person is not the problem, the person has a problem."
IF you want to know more about EFT (and you haven't already read this article), then click on the EFT Information Pack first for a general introduction to EFT (if that's needed). THEN, click on a deeper description of EFT which includes a more detailed outline of EFT plus a brief overview of why and how EFT works. It covers what mainly occurs in EFT sessions, and more! It is a more thorough examination of why EFT works so effectively and shows that there's a LOT more to EFT than just tapping on accupressure points.
You can contact me by calling phone number (08) 9487 8363 and leaving a message and including a clear contact number (and say it twice or three times).
Endorsements: The following professional EFT practitioners, counsellors and coaches are certified EFT practitioners who have been trained by and are endorsed by me. They are: Dee Constable - 0487-545-704 (Glen Forrest); Karen Marrington - 0409-602-283 (Rockingham); Emma Tucek - 0401-698-615 (Joondalup); Caroline Crosbie - 0416-154-259 (Craigie); Sylvia Kaval - 9332 8407 (Willetton); Yvonne Ducat - 9754-6562 (Busselton).
International research: Studies have been done that repeatedly show the effectiveness of EFT. A summary of this research on acupoint stimulation (which are mostly applications of EFT) has been carried out in seven countries with over fifty studies published so far and results have been published in peer-reviewed journals. In the web site linked to, the abbreviation "EP" refers to the field of "Energy Psychology" and EFT is the most successfully studied of the "energy techniques" that come under this general heading.
Evidence of effectiveness: In November 2012, the American Psychological Association (APA) published a summation of numerous validated studies showing the effectiveness of the Emotional Freedom Techniques. This was a significant step towards becoming fully accepted in the mainstream. It has taken years to get to this point and there's lots more to be done (and is being done).
EFT and War Veterans: In February 2013, the prestigious Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, the oldest peer-reviewed psychiatry journal in North America, published an extensive study on the use of EFT with War Veterans (all of whom had PTSD). The results were outstanding. EFT is phenomenally effective with painful memories and traumas.
The effect of EFT on Stress Biochemistry: The Journal of Nervous & Mental Disease also published a study that examined the changes in cortisol levels (which relate to degrees of stress) and psychological distress symptoms of 83 nonclinical subjects. Subjects were randomly assigned to three groups and EFT was used with one of the groups. Salivary cortisol assays were performed immediately before and 30 minutes afterwards. The EFT group experienced a significant decrease in cortisol level and the decrease mirrored the observed improvement in psychological distress.
EFT Newsletter: My EFT Newsletters usually include things happening locally and around the world that are interesting and useful, an EFT article of mine or by another practitioner, my workshop schedules, a Tip of the Month, the next Practice Sessions date, information on private EFT Sessions and the EFT Masters Newsletter, and Insurance for EFT practitioners & trainers.
Gary Craig's News: Gary Craig, the founder of EFT, introduced a updated accessible web site in May 2012. Click here to visit Gary's Official EFT Tutorial. It offers a free, updated, refined, expanded and more detailed EFT Tutorial that replaces his earlier EFT Manual. It sets the Official Standard for EFT instruction and training. And, Gary also has a new EFT newsletter plus a set of affordable online EFT Videos for more serious EFT'ers.
The international EFT Masters: There are only 29 certified EFT Masters certified by Gary Craig worldwide with only three in Australia i.e. Peter Graham (myself) plus Maggie Adkins and Rehana Webster both in the east. These EFT Founding Masters have their own web sites and you are invited to subscribe to their once-a-month practical, information-rich and cutting-edge Tips from the EFT Masters which is ideal for those who are serious about using EFT and want to continue expanding their EFT skills. The EFT masters are committed to taking a leading role in quality EFT training worldwide and honoring their status as responsible leaders in the international EFT community.
Most of my articles were written for EFT practitioners AND also for those studying AND for those using EFT personally. Some of my articles were also posted on the EFT Founding Masters' web site. Some of my articles are shown below.
There is a LOT more to EFT than the Tapping: A primary reason why EFT works is that there is a group of related contributors that consist of the EFT tapping technique PLUS over four other very important contributors.
The very useful EFT Setup: It's about the depth, value and uses of "the Setup" part of the EFT tapping technique, when it's needed. The "Setup" part of the EFT tapping technique helps to set things up so that "the tapping" can be more successful.
Working with the Subconscious Mind: This article examines why a person's Subconscious Mind may bring up an unresolved happening or painful event (now being triggered) from his/her past which he/she resists, avoids and/or buries or similar. There is a useful and positive solution that helps to consciously include accepting and acknowledging what is "coming up" by being present and consciously acknowledging it.
Quote: What You Resist, Persists!: This article outlines several effective EFT approaches for dissolving resistances that are contributing to a persistent issue or upset. The opposite of (subconscious) resistance is (conscious) acceptance.
Pulling the plug on negative emotions: This article examines how an interpretation of something (such as a happening or a part thereof) precedes and determines our emotional reaction to it. The thought or belief (i.e. the interpretation) can be located and then "tapped on" using EFT which "pulls the plug" on the negative emotion.
Tapping and Describing: This article includes two techniques that can be used separately or by alternating them for a while (one after the other). The EFT Tapping technique is separate from the Describing Technique. Both of these techniques can (in a different way) effectively address current negative emotions, feelings, sensations and discomforts. Info: I developed the "Describing Technique" in the mid-nineties (plus some more development since then). Both can be self-applied.
And, there's more and more to come!
There's also another article (that isn't an EFT article) that may nonetheless be of interest. It's title is Evaluating Beliefs which discusses what beliefs are, different types of beliefs and their many roles in our lives. It explores how we arrive at an idea or thought being true (all things being relevant) and what can go wrong. Some beliefs are extremely useful and some can cause us a great deal of distress, and some in between. Certain beliefs may need to be re-evaluated and thus brought up to date or dropped. We also tap on beliefs when doing EFT as beliefs are often intimately connected with our feelings and emotions.
An Impressive EFT Movie: A professional full-length movie on the use of EFT with combat veterans who have been suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was released in 2011. It is called OPERATION - Emotional Freedom. It's very impressive and shows just what EFT is capable of in this area. Gary thinks that it will be a stunning door opener for the whole EFT field. It is real and professional and shows EFT's amazing potential - close, personal and moving.
Brilliant book for serious EFT'ers - "EFT & Beyond": The ground-breaking 532-page book "EFT & Beyond – Cutting Edge Techniques for Personal Transformation" is a gold mine of advanced cutting-edge EFT techniques and never before have so many EFT experts (including many certified EFT Masters worldwide) combined to create a resource of this depth and value. I'm personally honoured to be one of the authors and my article is called "EFT for Turning Points" which describes how to use EFT to resolve the long-lasting negative effects of severe traumatic experiences which were "turning points" for the worse. This book can be obtained from the US OR from the UK both with a no-charge delivery from either the US or from the UK.
My EFT Qualifications: Gary Craig is the founder and developer of the EFT techniques. In January 2007, Gary's "EFT Insights" Newsletter announced that I was officially certified as an EFT Master, the highest EFT credential. There are only twenty nine EFT Masters certified by Gary Craig in the world, a list (below) with three Australian names. They are known as EFT Founding Masters. Later in 2007, I was also awarded EFT Honors certification. I am a full member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) and have been granted the status of IICT Approved Training Provider.
Meet me on YouTube:
In October 2007, I was a presenter at an EFT Masters' Showcase in Sydney, where six EFT Masters from around the world (with 3 from Australia plus 1 from New Zealand, 1 from the UK and another from Turkey). Each of us gave talks, answered questions and did live EFT sessions with volunteers from the audience of about 100. I gave a five minute talk at that event in 2007 that is available on YouTube. The video section also included whether EFT is a treatment or a tool for personal & spiritual growth, or both or a wide brush. The volunteer for my on-stage EFT session asked to speak to the whole audience the next day to say that the benefits she experienced had been profound. P.S. I don't carry a beard with me these days!
My Background and Experience: I was trained and worked as a pastoral counsellor in the 1970's, was a registered marriage celebrant and I trained and supervised other counsellors. I moved on from that period of my life (over 30 years ago), learnt a lot of valuable lessons and have been involved in emotional clearing and relationship coaching during most of the time since then (in both a full time and part time capacity). I came across EFT in November 1999 and, since mid-2000, I have been using EFT for over seventeen years (and still learning more). Click here for some earlier details

Workshop with Gary Craig: In November 2005, I attended a four-day EFT Masters workshop in San Francisco with Gary Craig (the developer of the EFT techniques). This was only the third time that this particular course had been held. There were 11 candidates on the course plus about 30 observers. Each of the candidates were required to do at least one live session (in front of those attending and observing) while it was filmed and then critiqued afterwards by Gary. It was an honour to meet Gary Craig and to share this experience with some of the most experienced EFT practitioners in the world. Five of them were from the US, two from Canada, one from the UK, and there were three Australians. I was later awarded an EFT Master's certificate signed by Gary Craig. There are only three certified EFT Masters in Australia.
The primary EFT Workshops: They are the one-day introductory EFT workshop (Level 1), the two-day foundational EFT workshop (Level 2), and the three-day Advanced EFT workshop (Level 3). There are also some advanced (beyond Level 2) special-purpose workshops such as the two-day Personal Empowerment EFT Workshop. Click on the link to display a diagram (in PDF format) that shows the sequence and relationship of the EFT workshops presented by Peter Graham. There are also EFT Practitioner certification programmes for Levels 2 and 3.
Advertised and unadvertised workshops: All of these workshops are scheduled and advertised. However, there are also unadvertised dates from time to time where at least a minimum number of people want to do it and the dates for them are agreed upon. An unadvertised workshop may also be held in an agreed upon location which may be local, in the country, interstate or overseas. In other words, it's based on negotible agreements where everyone wins.
EFT and TFT: I am often asked what the difference is between EFT and, its predecessor, Thought Field Therapy (TFT). EFT evolved out of TFT in the early nineties and has continued to evolve and develop since that time to become the powerful and flexible technique that it is today. It's my personal view that EFT is a more effective, more elegant, more streamlined and easier to use technique with much more flexibility and uses. I honour Dr Roger Callahan for his innovative research and significant breakthroughs that made it possible for the EFT techniques to be developed later on. Gary Craig studied TFT to the highest level and later went on to develop the amazing and simplified EFT tapping technique.
Developing Your EFT Skills Further: Having completed both the Level 1 and 2 EFT workshops, it is not the end of the road as far as developing your EFT skills is concerned. "EFT" stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques (plural). There are many options and possibilities for further advancing your confidence and skills. There is much more to learn about how EFT can be used and what it can be used for and the potential benefits are vast in scope and are open-ended. Many people have done Level 2 several times to consolidate and enhance those core skills (which you can't know too well). The Level 3 EFT Workshop and the Personal Empowerment EFT Workshop are both advanced EFT workshops that require Level 2 skills as their pre-requisite, because they are built on and depend on the foundational Level 2 core EFT skills. The advanced workshops can be done in any order or selectively. The Introduction to the Basics of Counselling workshop teaches and explores some important counselling/coaching/facilitating concepts and skills that can make a big positive difference when appying EFT with others.
I've been a member of the International AAMET for over 10 years. I regard it to have the best association to be connected with and supported by. It's also non-profit.
AAMET International is a UK-registered organisation, committed to advancing and upholding the highest standards for education, training, professional development and promotion of the skillful, creative and ethical application of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
AAMET Quotes: "AAMET International (The Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques) is a voluntary, not-for-profit association: A UK Registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)" and "AAMET International is committed to advancing and upholding the highest standards for education, training, professional development and promotion of the skilful, creative and ethical application of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques or "Tapping")."
Thank you for your interest, your usage, your contributions and connections.
EFT has great depth and there is much to offer. And research continues!
And continue to "Tap along and sing a song!"
Wishing you all the very best,
