Become Certified in EFT
A Certified EFT Therapist is one whose expertise in this model of therapy is recognized by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). The primary goals of certification are to promote excellence in the practice of EFT and to ensure maintenance of these standards in both the supervision and training of this approach.
Benefits of EFT Training:
A Therapist can be listed on the ICEEFT (International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy) Directory upon completion of an EFT Externship. Completing the Externship is also the first step in a therapist's road towards becoming an ICEEFT certified therapist.
Requirements for Certification:
- An ICEEFT endorsed EFT Externship led by a Certified EFT Trainer: 28-30 hours over 4 days.
- Core Skills training led by a certified EFT Trainer: 48 hours over four 2-day workshops.
- Individual supervision by a Certified EFT Supervisor, Trainer, or approved Supervisor Candidate: 8 hours. (Individual supervision may be with two people). Supervision may be face to face or long distance. ICEEFT requires that every effort be made to protect confidentiality of the client. Any web based sharing of information or encryption of sessions must be done in accordance with the standard of the professional college of the supervisor. ICEEFT is not responsible for supervisor’s actions in this regard.
