Safeguarding Training for EFT Practitioners / Mentors / Supervisors & Trainers
Our goal is to support those who are offering EFT / Tapping Techniques to those in need.
With access to the right resources, EFT practitioners know first hand that individuals can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

Who We Are
Here at Safeguarding EFT, we are driven to do our part in making the world a better place for all.
We work to support EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), and all other Tapping Technique Practitioners, to develop their knowledge and skills with regard to safeguarding and working confidently with children, young people, and their families / carers.
Making A Difference
Safeguarding EFT is an Enterprising Youth project, headed up by Dawn Cretney BA (Hons) and Kerry Dawson BA (Hons).
Both are qualified and highly experienced youth and community education trainers, managers and practitioners.
Dawn is a qualified EFT practitioner who is a co-opted volunteer with EFTi Ethics Committee. On a day-to-day basis, Dawn develops, delivers and manages a wide variety of youth and community projects, including school-based delivery as well as managing a private caseload of clients.
Kerry is a CEOP Ambassador and trained trainer with the NSPCC and The Safer Recruitment Consortium. An experienced safeguarding trainer Kerry has delivered multi-agency safeguarding training on behalf of Local Safeguarding Children Boards.
Why Safeguarding Training?
The legal framework to protect children is contained in Working together to Safeguard Children (2018). The overarching objective is to enable children to live a life free from abuse or neglect. If a professional (whether statutory or not) knows, or has evidence to justify believing that a child (or vulnerable person) is being abused, neglected or maltreated, they are failing in their duty to Safeguard if they keep this information ‘confidential’.
Identifying Safeguarding Training
Generic Safeguarding training is often offered locally through councils as part of workforce development. There are also private providers delivering to organisations, and the NSPCC who also offer training.
Whilst some training is excellent, please be aware that not all training is equal, nor may it meet your needs.
When looking, consider your own training requirements to identify what will be suitable. In truth, a short /online course, though convenient, is unlikely to equip an EFT practitioner with the required awareness and knowledge.
Be mindful of the fact most courses are aimed at staff/volunteers who work ‘at arms length’, not practitioners whose purpose is engaging, exploring, enquiring in a therapeutic context.
Additionally, areas of specialism may be required for greater competence and confidence by the practitioner.
It’s important to remember that Safeguarding is not one-off training. It is a continuously evolving field and regular training updates are undertaken in allied professions (teachers have them avg. 1-2 years, many NHS staff annually). Some trainings are updates and briefings, others are refreshers.
Any questions please get in touch.
