A testimonial quote from the "Faster EFT" website...
Has anyone here tried "Faster EFT"?
If so, how did it compare with regular EFT?

Since no-one else seems to have had experience with Faster EFT, I guess I'll answer this one myself :)
A Review of Robert G Smith's Faster EFT
Overall, I found the training course to be highly rewarding, valuable and genuinely ground-breaking.
I've studied a lot of metaphysical, spiritual, NLP etc types of things over the years - I also have several years experience with standard EFT - and this information certainly ranks as some of the most life-changing I've yet come across.
Over a period of months, I worked my way gradually through Robert Smith's Mind of the Healer Series, Training Collection Seminars I, II, III and a few others. In all, that's probably well over 40-50 hours of videos.
His videos are basically just recordings of his six-week seminars and often the teaching gets sidetracked a bit as participants ask questions, share stories, or he works live on participants' emotional problems.
For that reason, the training could be massively shortened without losing any content.
However one bonus of sitting through so many training videos was that I had already built up considerable experience with seeing the processes applied practically before applying them myself.
After finishing the three training seminars, there would really be nothing (apart from complying with any legal requirements) to stop you setting yourself up immediately as some kind of life-change practitioner and bringing about fast (and probably amazing) emotional changes in others.
Robert Smith's general approach to EFT is to forget about thinking about verbal statements to tap on and just focus instead on directly eliciting the troublesome emotional states. I've previously mentioned some of his ideas in this answer.
His brilliant insight with Faster EFT is that that every emotional problem usually has many causes, not just one. And each one of those causes is enough to cause that emotional problem just by itself.
So even though you may have cleared up what you consider to be the cause of the problem, the problem might still be there because there are other causes yet to be cleared up.
To explain this more clearly, imagine a table with many legs...
The table top represents the emotional problem in your (or someone else's) life and each table leg represents a cause of the problem (an emotional driver).
As long as a single table leg still exists (an emotional driver), the table top (the emotional problem) will still be able to be supported. Obviously, it will be a rather unstable tabletop with so few legs :) ...but it will still be there.
Because of this structure to problems, people can think they are not making any progress towards an issue, despite lots of clean-up efforts, when really they are making significant progress i.e. they are breaking off more and more of those table legs.
But until that table-top is finally brought crashing to the ground, the problem is still there.
Robert Smith has a single, basic question he asks in order to discover what those causes (table legs) are...
How do you know you have a problem?
As you (or your subject) come up with responses to this question, Robert elicits the underlying emotional drivers and taps them away without the need for the emotional states to even be named or verbalized.
Indeed, one doesn't even need to know what someone else's emotional problem actually is. All they have to do is just feel it themselves at the time of the tapping.
One of the biggest insights I received from the course was his approach of tackling many emotional problems all together in one go (The Super Power Quick Tap). In effect, it's a way of stacking up multiple tables with multiple legs and, in just a few moments, collapsing all of them.
Instead of emotional change taking years (through standard therapy) or even hours (through more high-powered methods), his methods can bring about permanent large-scale emotional change in minutes, sometimes even seconds.
You can see many, many examples of Robert Smith and his Faster EFT in action on his YouTube channel.
As I implied above, I think Robert Smith's insights into the way that emotional problems are structured and how to tackle them are genuinely ground-breaking.
I've felt for years that EFT is the future of human emotional transformation and, as far as I am concerned, Faster EFT is the future of EFT :)
I just want to share an insight that I had recently. It may help those who are familiar with Faster EFT. It's about a faster variation (for me at least) of Faster EFT's "Quick Tap".
Robert Smith stacks up emotional states by using words and taps away many of them in one go. This works fine. Here he explains it himself.
However I do a "kinesthetic Quick Tap" which works more efficient for me, since I seem to be more of a kinesthetic person these days.
I basically stack up several specific body sensations directly that appear on a regular basis. Robert Smith uses emotional words instead (which indeed lead to cleaning up body sensations that the brain associates with those words).
Robert Smith Quick Tap goes like this:
The "Kinesthetic Quick Tap" goes like this:
That's it. You might want to add one or two other sensations that you experience. Because my list of sensations is what I feel on a regular basis when I have a problem. It may be a little bit different for you. But the basic structure of this should work.

I checked out fasterEFT after you asked this question. I do really like it a lot! You don't have to say the phrases, just feel the emotion. I like it for right now stress. I combined it with what Karen Naumen refers to as one handed tapping. You use your thumb to tap on the finger points of the same hand. I don't tap on each one seven times, I tap from one to the next over and over until the stress goes away. It works really great! I don't even say let it go, because I am usually doing something else with my other hand or am talking or listening or something.

EFT or faster EFT can be made even more effective by the use of crystals - according to Judy Hall, a crystal expert. She has developed what she calls CRYSTAL TAPPING. The idea is that you go through all the usual EFT/Faster EFT steps (with one additional tapping point) but use a cleansed and programmed brandenberg crystal to absorb the negative energies.
You first cleanse the brandenberg (various really simple ways to do this) and then dedicate it to helping you to transform and release your negative emotions, toxic thoughts and ingrained patterns.
"A brandenberg, in addition to absorbing negative energy, restores your subtle energy grid to the perfect energetic state it had before a pattern, thought or emotion became ingrained"
She adds one additional tapping point, the soma chakra (the centre of the forehead at the hairline) as this links to the subtle energy grid.
Judy's books - Good Vibrations (for info on crystal tapping) and great info on crystals is in The Crystal Bible.
I use it reguarly. I started off having a couple of sessions with EFT and Matrix Re-impinting, and then I found Faster EFT on you tube. I was suffering from debilitating panic attacks and this helped clear it all up. I also had a severe permanent pain in my lower back that also got rid of with Faster eft. I did not get a quick shift like you see in Roberts videos. I had a lot to work on because I had so many past references. Here is more about my story: http://www.treasureu.co.uk/lizzies-experience-with-fastereft/stop-panic-attacks/ I would highly recommend it. And you can do it for free, just check out Roberts videos and tap along.

Yes this I actually did last year on fear, I was getting into EFT because it was recommended on my Your Wish Is Your Command cds. EFT was recommended but more so the original TFT but I am digressing here, I decided this works so well why not just use it on all fear! So I used it on all fear, I felt like superman I felt incredible like I could jump off a roof with no fear. I had to at that time resort to logic even though I had no fear that is still a stupid thing to do.
I don't feel it was permanent because I don't feel like that today about testing my having no fear, I must not have rid myself of all fear as I still deal with Philophobia, that is the fear of falling of being in love.
I suppose when that bothers me I'll work on it, for now I feel great.
