The Institute for Emotionally Focused Therapy was established as an independent training organisation to provide continuing education and professional training courses. The focus of the Institute is the theoretical, skills and personal development of counsellors and therapists who wish to develop and expand their clinical expertise using an Emotionally Focused approach. Each program is designed to integrate clinical skills with theory, using an adult learning approach incorporating experiential exercises, personal and professional reflection, discussion, video observation and role-plays.
