“You probably hear this all the time, but you have genuinely changed my life”
EFC Client, September 2021
The Origins of EFC...
EFC is built on a very simply premise, human beings are designed to flow. We are self-healing and self-correcting, our default setting is to thrive. When we experience symptoms and syndromes, or are struggling in some way, something is blocking our flow, there are obstacles in the way. Peeling away the layers to reveal our authentic core facilitates a return to wellness, vitality and peace of mind.
Energy-Flow Coaching™ (EFC) was originally developed to address the primary causes of conditions including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue, Post-Viral Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety, Panic Disorder and Depression. Because it is an expansive model that addresses the underlying causes of suffering and experience more generally, EFC has proved successful when used in life coaching and executive coaching settings as well.
Drawing on the understanding that chronic health challenges emerge when brain and body are stuck in a perpetual state of stress, EFC paves the way for healing by addressing underlying trauma and stressors.
EFC has a primary focus on healing deep rooted emotional imbalances and blockages – not in the past, as they present themselves in the present. We take the view that emotion is a complex physiological process impacting most of the major organs and the brain. We unconsciously learn to block the flow of our emotion either through the experience of traumas or simply through dealing with the burdens and complexities of life.
Despite our focus on emotion, however, we do address the other pillars of wellbeing including nutrition, sleep and recovery, movement, and social and environmental factors.
Going beyond the medical and the conventional, the path of healing and transformation through EFC blends somatic, transpersonal, psycho-spiritual, sensory and meta-cognitive elements. In practice, EFC embraces science and spirituality. It is a set of principles and practices that empower individuals to tap into their deeper potentials for self-healing, well-being, resilience, and flow.
The practitioner program is designed to give you new knowledge and skills that will help to facilitate a transformative experience for yourself and those you work with.
What Can You Expect To Learn?
During the EFC facilitator training you are going to be guided through a deeply personal journey. Whilst our end goal is for you to integrate the knowledge and understanding to successfully work with sufferers of chronic fatigue and pain conditions, anxiety and depression, this work is more than teaching you a series of tools and techniques that you can apply.
You will learn:
- How trauma and stress ultimately present as disease states and how to reverse those disease states
- A new empowered way to interpret and translate the messages that symptoms present, as well as the deeper patterns at play underneath symptom messages.
- The principles and practices that facilitate a reconnection with the body helping to dissolve unprocessed stress and trauma.
- Practically based knowledge to address all 5 pillars of health; emotion & mindset, sleep & recovery, nutrition, exercise & movement, social & environmental factors.
- Therapeutic coaching skills for working with a broad range of clients
- How to deepen your understanding of how mind, body, and consciousness combine to give rise to your experience of life. This means we will be discovering what influences and impacts our ability to self-heal and experience wellbeing and fulfillment. As you deepen your understanding of yourself and your own challenges, you will become more effective at helping others.
The EFC journey takes us from believing that life is happening to us, through seeing that we are life and life flows through us.
The program is split into 2 stages.
Stage 1 covers all the principles and practices of EFC and teaches you how to apply the work in your own life.
This stage takes place over 3 months and comprises
- live taught modules via Zoom
- self-exploration exercises and activities to experiment with
- access to our online portal comprising videos, audios, and a manual, and
- additional one-to-one support where needed
At the end of stage 1 you will have a full understanding of the underpinning theory and applications of EFC.
Following successful completion of the Stage 1 Assessment you will be in a position to apply the principles and practices to your own life and in your work to a certain extent.
However, in order to become a fully certified EFC Therapeutic Coach you will need to complete stage 2 of the training.
Stage 2. Taking place over a 9 month period, stage 2 teaches you how to effectively apply EFC in a therapeutic coaching setting. Building on what you learned in stage 1, the focus of stage 2 is the nuances of application in real world settings.
You will learn how to effectively work with:
- chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other symptoms and syndromes that are categorised as ‘medically unexplained’ or ‘invisible illnesses’
- anxiety and panic symptoms and conditions
- brownout and burnout
- transformational life coaching – individuals who are wishing to create lasting change, experience greater personal freedom and peace of mind
Taught modules and group supervision sessions are delivered via Zoom. One-to-one support coaching sessions are delivered via Skype or Zoom.
If you wish to become a certified EFC therapeutic coach and be included on our register of coaches, you will need to complete both stage 1 and stage 2.
Continued membership of the Register relies on compliance with the EFC Code of Conduct, undertaking supervision and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
Who is this Training for?
If you are a healthcare professional, health coach, social worker, massage therapist, bodyworker, nutritionist, naturopath, counsellor, hypnotherapist, personal trainer, or life coach, the EFC practitioner program will not only add a new dimension to the way you work with clients, it will facilitate a personal transformation for you. The facilitator program is not exclusively open to therapists, coaches, healers and consultants, it is also open to those who want to experience better health, wellbeing, relationships and fulfillment in life.
EFC will take you on a profound healing journey, that will offer you new and exciting insights into the very nature of your experience and what gives rise to human suffering. You will be guided and supported on a journey that will give you a fresh perspective on the nature of illness and disease, who you really are, and how identity is constructed.
You will learn how to help clients move beyond the experience of debilitating symptoms, as well as facilitating their re-alignment with their ‘true self’, helping them to unleash latent potentials, creativity and peace of mind.
“I had been following Kyle for some time looking for answers and any help related to my own healing journey. It was then that I decided to sign up and participate in the Energy-Flow Coaching practitioner course. It was great very informative and life changing to say the least. I still to this day live, breathe, and apply Kyle’s theories into my everyday life.”
“I had been working with emotions and health since 1989 and I first encountered fellow psychologist Kyle Davies in 2006 through an emotions based therapy he had devised. In the years that followed we touched base many times and I was incessantly interested in his increasing understanding of the role of emotions in health. I described his work as ‘sheer genius’. In the wake of publishing his book ‘The Intelligent Body’ – a bible of mind-body emotional health treatment – Kyle unveiled his new Energy Flow Coaching (EFC) practitioner training programme which I inquisitively attended. Firstly, I found the course a complete joy to embrace as Kyle has that innate ability to enthral his audience, especially when he goes off script as gold dust emanates from his mouth. From learning more about myself; the nature of symptoms and disease; the deeper perspectives of life as well as the role of emotions in well being, this course has it all and more. I highly recommend this training; this teacher and this philosophy of health, whether it be for personal development or to assist others in a career setting. Someday we will all follow this roadmap to sublime health. “
