EFT: Tool Box

If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

 Abraham Maslow

 EFTI’s tool kits are a collection of ideas, factual material, and resources.  Our tool kits are works in progress. What we want to offer people are posters and templates and inspirational tools that they can download, print out and use to reach their emotional fitness goals. They are A4 in size and so, easily printed on your home printer.

Explanations for many of these tools are found in my eBooks and books


These zip folders have been put together to provide readers of my
eBooks with Tool Kits that are easy to download and use. They are
filled with posters that compliment the lessons in the eBook they are
associated with. Click on the name of the eBook you own to download
