“Before you ever get certified, you’ll notice feeling better about your work, having more clarity, keeping your clients longer, having fewer drop-outs, having better outcomes and having more referrals.”  Roy Hodgson, Certified EFT Trainer

ICEEFT offers a variety of training opportunities for Therapists interested in learning and developing the skills for / or to become an EFT Therapist / Supervisor. Further details are provided on these pages.

The Centre has also developed standards and procedures for becoming a Certified EFT Therapist as well as for establishing the requirements to become certified as an EFT Supervisor.

We aim to cultivate a climate of inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, cared for, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other.  In all facets of our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world – a just, loving humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully – where people can embrace their most basic universal human attachment needs without fear of persecution or marginalization as a result of religion, race, ethnic or national origin, sexual/affectional orientation and preferences, gender expression, family structure, age, class, mental health, physical character or disability.  These values are inherent in the attachment science and humanistic approach to intervention that all our work is based on.


There are a variety of training opportunities available through the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Supervision and training are provided by Certified EFT Supervisors and Trainers.
