A training center for therapists in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) as developed by Dr Sue Johnson 

As EFT therapists we recognise and are motivated by the efficacy of scientific research and clinical experience which continually validates the necessity for the growth of positive and intimate relationships as a vital resource to the health and well being of individuals, couples, families and our communities.

We are committed to generating a secure and supportive base of well trained EFT therapists in both France and International Francophone communities.

What is EFT?

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is based on attachment theory, which says that humans are hardwired for strong emotional bonds in relationships. EFT states that relationship problems happen when couples have experienced emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments which then leads to struggles. These struggles turn into cycles which become hard to break out of. EFT then assists couples to get past these cycles, to re-connect, and to build a secure relationship bond together.

Empirical research shows that emotions drive everything, especially in our relationships. Emotions are the reasons we are happy or sad, or feeling stuck in our relationships.

ICEEFT Certification

A Certified EFT Therapist is one whose expertise in this model of therapy is recognized by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). The primary goals of certification are to promote excellence in the practice of EFT and EFFT (Emotionally Focused Family Therapy) and to ensure maintenance of these standards in both the supervision and training of this approach.

Teleconferences involve a structured discussion of cases led by Certified EFT Trainers over the phone. Participants need to present one case for one half hour and provide a transcript of the session (6-8 pages) that is shared with all participants. Participating in a teleconference can be counted as group supervision hours in the EFT certification process.
