Therapist Training

Becoming a Certified EFT Couples Therapist

The success of the EFT model in treating couples has led to the development of an EFT certification process by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). The certification process verifies the level of competence of therapists in the model. The criteria that must be met in order for a therapist to receive EFT certification are based on both observational processes of effective EFT therapy and written requirements. There is also a certification process for EFT supervisors and EFT trainers.

The requirements for certification as an EFT Couples Therapist include:

  1. An intensive 4-day basic EFT Externship. We call this “Fundamentals of EFT” in Australia.

  2. Eight days of intensive training courses in EFT. We call these “Core Skills of EFT A & B” in Australia. Each Core Skills workshop is four days long.

  3. Consultation/supervision by a Certified EFT Supervisor (minimum of 8 hours).

  4. Submission of various written materials and references and 2 different video excerpts demonstrating the therapist’s grasp of the model in Stage 1 and 2. These are reviewed by a Certified EFT Trainer at ICEEFT in Ottawa, Canada.

  5. Please note: EFT Externships and Core Skills trainings are designed for mental health professionals and trainees. Participants are required to note their professional affiliation on registration.
