Workshop information in Italian
Learn this unique approach to quickly cut through resistance, negative beliefs and other emotional barriers to get right to the heart of problems, and release them.
Lake Garda at Desenzano, Italy
9-11 October 2020 (plus extra PET Practice Day on Monday 12 October)
(Presented in English with translation to Italian)
If you want to change or you help others change the biggest challenge you will face is resistance.
Resistance manifests as fear, avoidance, procrastination, self-doubt and self-sabotage.
Unless you overcome it, you – or your clients – can’t be free to create the life you or they really want.
This workshop will teach you a unique approach to overcome resistance and rapidly access energy and power for positive change.
And you’ll learn how to make change easier and more fun!
You’ll learn 3 powerful Energy Psychology modalities and how to combine them to create rapid and lasting changes:
Simple Energy Techniques (SET) tapping,
Intention-based Energy Process (IEP), or Intention Tapping, and, mostly,
Provocative Energy Techniques (PET)
Practitioners can expect to leave with new options in their therapeutic repertoire, and more elegant skills in working with difficult clients.
What is Provocative Energy Techniques (PET)?
“PET makes impossible things possible… The provocative style was like having a sauna bath, relieving, refreshing, just great, clear thoughts, limiting beliefs gone.”
— Eva Maria Lundell, MD, Munich
Provocative Energy Techniques (PET) is a unique integrative energy psychology approach created by Steve Wells and Dr David Lake which combines tapping with humorous and paradoxical language patterns and techniques drawn from Provocative Therapy, Brief Strategic Therapy and Ericksonian Therapy.
PET addresses the multi-level nature of problems through warmth, liberating laughter, and spontaneity, elegantly addressing both mind and body in therapy.
PET can make deep level changes fast, fun, and enjoyable for both clients and practitioners.
How Does it Work?
PET’s provocative language techniques bypass resistance and rapidly get to the core of problems to draw out energy and power for change (the root meaning of provoke = to draw out). Skilful tapping combined with warm, empathic humour brings rapid relief from negative emotions. Heart energy flows through and completes the healing. It’s a powerful combination.

What is IEP?
Intention-based Energy Process (IEP), also known as Intention Tapping, is a new approach to emotional healing developed by Steve Wells that uses specific intentions combined with tapping to open your inner pathways to positive change.
IEP’s specific intentions act as commands to your unconscious mind to release the emotional attachments behind your problems, unblock body energy disturbances that prevent you from moving forward, and restore your life energy to flow. This allows you to rapidly work through problem aspects by accessing the resources of the unconscious mind. The results are frequently very positive and surprising.
“I am doing the IEP with clients with outstanding results. The process is so fast, so causative, so moving and astonishing. I worked with a variety of topics and also friends with years-long experience with traditional tapping. The unanimous opinion is: brilliant tool…”
– Kerstin Warkentin, Deputy Chair of EFT DACH, Germany
“The speed and ease of this process makes it very powerful and wide ranging in a way that standard EFT/tapping (which is excellent) can’t manage. It’s the difference between ‘hunt and peck’ typing and touch typing – both create words but one is much easier than the other.
Apart from the speed the other wow factor for me is the harnessing of the unconscious mind to do what it does best by following its own links and associations which are hidden from our own conscious mind.
In my opinion the combination of power and grace in the ‘Intention Tapping’ processes are worth their weight in gold.”
– Andy Hunt, EFT International Trainer, UK
What is SET?
Simple Energy Techniques (SET) is a user-friendly energy tapping approach developed by Steve Wells and Dr David Lake which can often provide rapid relief for emotional problems and some physical problems. SET evolved from Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and is equally effective, and more user-friendly and efficient. SET can also be easily combined with other therapeutic approaches to improve your results.
How the workshop will work:
In this fun, practical and engaging workshop, you’ll learn how to overcome resistance and create freedom for yourself and (if you are a helper) for others, via live demonstrations, experiential exercises, and small group practice sessions.
First, you’ll learn SET tapping, and how to use it to relieve negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, guilt, anger, grief, trauma.
Next, you’ll learn how to combine SET with the powerful intentions of IEP, and use this to release emotional hooks, restore calm clarity, and access inner resources and confidence for change.
Then, you’ll learn some of the powerful provocative patterns from PET and how to use them to create solid heart-based connections, release resistance, use humour for healing, and bring rapid relief to core issues.
At some point you will become infected with the provocative virus, bringing an inner freedom and lightness of being for which there is no cure – other than passing it on!
Finally, you’ll integrate these approaches together into a powerful package for change and you’ll leave with a whole lot of new options for helping yourself and helping others.

What others say about PET and Steve’s Training:
“The heart continues to be grateful for the light you made me see in me, and to which you gave voice and wings. Because freedom feels like a laugh made together. Finally. After watching the fear go away. I love you.”
– Paola, participant in Desenzano Workshop
“…when Steve has finished working with you, it is sure you cannot stop smiling though you have the strange feeling it should be the other way round and, at the same time, you are not even sure of that, because you do not even remember what actually was your problem or if you had a problem at all…” – Viria Romagnoli, Soul Voice Practitioner, PET Practitioner, Italy
“I attended in Rome the seminar on PET held by Steve Wells and translated by Andrea Fredi and I loved it. I found it enriching, exciting, very fun and very useful. Theory and practice have been expertly mixed.
Steve introduced IEP (Intention Energy Process) and allowed us to do extensive practice … The simplicity and power of the technique are remarkable in dissolving blocks and negativity inherent in sabotage.
Steve also held several sessions with provocative style (PET)… He is really a master in generating laughter and perspective changes through the provocation made with the HEART.
Back to my work, I immediately wanted to apply IEP and PET in a combined way. I did it with due caution. The client laughed a lot and we had so much fun in a genuine way, as he confirmed. She felt great relief from the heavy emotions he wanted to overcome and she confirmed that laughter was really a medicine! During the second session, she was much lighter, had a different light on her face and reported changes in points of view and emotions. I will certainly continue to use this approach with my clients, as I am using IEP often and with benefit for myself.
…thank you for dedicating yourself to bringing these techniques to the knowledge of the Italian public.” – Alessandro Dargenio, Professional Business and Life Coach
“Thank you for your amaaaaaazing workshop! Thank you for your compassion, wit, intelligence, acceptance and your wide open heart. I continue to benefit from it greatly on a personal and also a professional level. With clients I was amazed at how light things were despite the numerous deep issues that were treated … AND it’s so much fun for everyone!” — Christine Blanchet, EFT Trainer, France/UK
“A most fantastic experience …. You have taken this work to a whole new level… your work is the therapy of the future.” – Sharon Toole, Psychotherapist, Toronto, Canada
“After the first 2 days of PET, I knew this is something special, unlike anything I have learned in the past decade, studying many of the different tapping modalities, NLP, and so on…
The PET workshops have been life-transforming for me personally, as well as for me as a coach. It has shattered by previous belief system in such an empowering way that I have more fun in life, more fun in sessions, and most of all, better results with clients…
If you want results, and if you care about getting the best results for your clients while having the most fun possible, this is a must have in your skill-set for life…”
– Sebastiaan van der Schrier, Social Anxiety Coach, Netherlands
“Although I had been using EFT successfully with clients for several years, the fine tuning and addition of the PET techniques profoundly expanded my effectiveness … I am amazed at how much more quickly and comfortably clients have been moving through their issues, pain and trauma. I have received several phone calls after the sessions in which I have used these techniques thanking me for, as one client said, ‘bringing me the first feeling of peace I have had in months’.” — Lynda Malerstein, USA
“I feel absolutely fantastic. Not just good or great, but more alive, content and at peace with myself than I can ever remember feeling… It’s like a heavy shroud of darkness has been lifted off me. I feel totally different in my body – bigger, stronger, lighter, more upright, full of potential and charged with energy flowing from top to bottom and bottom to top…I am so much more approving of myself with all my foibles and so much more positive in my outlook to my life… My deepest and most sincere thanks.” — Charles Cuninghame, Sydney
“Steve’s style is really innovative, entertaining and certainly a must see for anyone who is really interested in mastering Energy Therapy. ” – Tania Prince, EFT Master and EFTi Trainer, UK
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the best course I’ve been on in years. There were so many aha moments, I’m still stunned. So many pieces fell into place, it was amazing.” – Jaqui Crooks, EFT Master, UK
