The Australian Centre for Emotionally Focused Therapy (ACEFT) is passionate about creating strong relationships and helping people to thrive.
ACEFT shares information about Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help to connect people interested in EFT with an EFT therapist. ACEFT was established by Dr Jennifer Fitzgerald and Dr Clare Rosoman in 2014 and serves three main roles:
- providing quality psychological treatment;
- training EFT practitioners; and
- providing a network for EFT practitioners and clients in Australia.
We provide training in EFT for therapists, and have clinics offering EFT therapy at two Brisbane locations - Spring Hill and Morningside.

ACEFT is affiliated with the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), Ottawa, Canada.
ICEEFT was founded in 1998 by Dr Sue Johnson and her colleagues. It offers educational courses and training to mental health professionals, provides certification for EFT therapists around the world and undertakes clinical research studies.
ICEEFT works closely with its various affiliated EFT Centres and Communities throughout the world (visit www.iceeft.com for more information).
Attachment science offers us the most potent model for therapeutic change, especially when dealing with anxiety and depression, and that, of all models of intervention, EFT most closely captures the essence of the attachment perspective. It targets the defining feature of survival-oriented human connection, namely strong emotion, and systematically shapes core bonding interactions with others.
Being the “best you can be” is really only possible when you are deeply connected to another. Splendid isolation is for planets, not people.
