Becoming a Certified EFT Couples Therapist

The International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) has developed  a training and certification process to ensure and verify 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. In Australia this 4 day course is called “Fundamentals of EFT”.

  2. Eight days of intensive training courses in EFT : Core Skills A and Core Skills B are four days each. 

  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 have achieved a professional affiliation prior to registration in Fundamentals of EFT.
