Learn The New Science Of Love

Knowing the new Science of Love will help you be successful in couples and relationships. It will even help you improve your own compassion for others and strengthen relationships in your own life. Imagine improving your therapy skill, having more success in treating couples, earning CEU’s AND getting happier in your own life all at the same time. We know from recent research (Levenson and Sandberg, 2010) attending an EFT Externship can do just that.

It’s All About The Neural Duet
