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), registered charity number 1176538. 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").
AAMET supports the creative and ethical education in, and use of, classical EFT as originally taught by EFT's developer Gary Craig and included in his recent updates, which he refers to as "Gold Standard EFT." AAMET provides a training framework for EFT, which is used worldwide by a large network of AAMET Master Trainers (referred to simply as "Trainers").
Students of those Trainers, upon completion of a programme that includes in-person practical as well as academic training, examination and supervision/mentoring, are eligible to list on AAMET’s register of Accredited Certified EFT Practitioners and Advanced Practitioners.
Practitioners listed on this website are recognised AAMET members who have agreed to hold appropriate insurance cover and who have signed up to follow our Code of Conduct and Ethics and to undertake an annual minimum number of hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and Supervision/Mentoring. AAMET only accepts members with a high standard of training and has a formal feedback, complaints and investigation procedure in place.
AAMET is a member of GRCCT (General Regulatory Council for Complementary Therapies). It is the larger of the two national regulatory bodies in the UK developed from the work of the Prince’s Foundation in 2007.
Supported by the professional lead bodies, GRCCT holds a National Register of approximately 18,000 practitioners of 20 different complementary therapy disciplines, as well as providing an independent arbitration and complaints process. Each discipline implements safe practitioner education entry requirement in conjunction with National Occupational Standards. Practitioners and organisations granted admission to join GRCCT are seen to meet UK General Medical Council guidelines for GP referral and NHS Patient Safety Criteria.
