Setting Up Your EFT Clinic
For EFT Practitioners New and Nearly-New
(Add or view comments at the bottom of the page.)
You may be starting out or perhaps you are an EFT practitioner looking to increase your client base. This is a part-summary of a book I wrote answering queries from my own EFT students. I hope you (or someone you know) can you find it helpful.
Whether you are starting anew or starting a new venture, all you need to do is follow these steps.
- Work out your business expenses, work out your living expenses, assume you will have 1-3 clients each working day to start, and divide the expenses by the number of working days. That is roughly what you should charge. Do not be deluded by the idea of time spent with the client. For every initial hour spent with a client, you will be spending at least the same amount of time on accounts, marketing, customer service, and general housekeeping.
- Offer the best quality service you can at a fair price that your market can afford.
- Work with what you are impassioned about Your clients will appreciate your passion and expertise. They will also come to you for other issues, since they trust you to be motivated.
- Make sure you contact your clients from time to time to check that they are happy. If they are not, find out why and take steps to rectify the situation and prevent it from happening in the future.
- Ask for referrals.
- Charge what your service is worth. This may not be what you feel it is worth. Work on improving your self-esteem, so that your judgement will be fair to all concerned.
- Make sure your therapy space is clean, tidy, safe, and complies with the law.
- Make sure you are appropriately dressed for the therapy and clientèle you service. I advise even dressing appropriately for a phone session, to put you in the mood.
- Do not be too generous or too short with your time.
- Always be on time. If doing home visits, never be more than 15 minutes early.
- If you have a clinic, make sure it is open and heated in cold weather before the first client arrives.
- In hot weather, if you do not have air conditioning, provide a fan for client comfort.
- Do not be afraid to ask for appointments or referrals. Your clients will usually appreciate being asked.
- Keep your training up-to-date.
- Team up with other professionals that are good therapists but in a different (not competitive) field.
- Find out who your average client is. For example, you may wish to attract single male clients over 40, but your average client who attends your therapy practice (as your client notes show) is married, female and 35. So the quickest way to increase your business if that is the case is to target married women around 35 years of age.
- Liaise with doctors, charities, and companies in your area that can help you gain more clients in return for services provided by yourself, for example a talk about pain management.
- Ask your clients how you can improve.
I hope this has been helpful to you and those you care about. And I hope it has given you a few ideas. Happy Tapping!

A virus caught along with 5 other students at university at the end of 1986, plus medical negligence, meant that I got smokers lung at a relatively young age. In desperation for help with my symptoms and quality of life, I turned to complementary therapy, and I have outlived one doctor's prognosis by many years now.
I am now a complementary therapist, author and trainer specializing in energy healing. Want to use this article? You can, as long as you credit me with it and invite your readers to get my FREE e-book "EFT How-To For You" at http://www.EFT-Scripts.com
