Emotionally Focussed Therapy for couple counselling: Not useful for the exams but maybe useful for your clinically practice!


Introducing EFT trainer

Dr Jenny Fitzgerald is a Clinical Psychologist and a Certified therapist, supervisor and trainer in EFT (International Centre for Excellence in EFT, Ottawa Canada).  Jenny teaches EFT workshops throughout Australia, has presented with Dr Clare Rosoman at two international conference in Nork (2015) and Rome (2017), and provides clinical supervision to couples’ therapists throughout Australia and in Singapore and Malaysia.  She works in private practice in Brisbane and is a part- time senior lecturer in the School of Medicine at the University of Queensland.   


The four-day externship: Fundamentals of EFT is the worldwide starting place for all formal training in EFT for couples.  All participants must be mental health practitioners or in university training toward that end.  The 28 hours of the Externship will provide an understanding of the application of attachment and emotion theories to couples’ distress, outline the steps and stages of the EFT model, help you understand the EFT interventions and three key change events, show you training tapes and give you several opportunities for role play practice with colleagues.  A live consultation with a couple from the community will be conducted if possible.  Reading resources (articles, chapters, manual) will be provided. 

Core skills workshops

After the Externship, interested persons can undertake extra training, Core Skills A (4 days) and Core Skills B (4 days).  See for dates as they become available.

The Core Skills workshops, in small groups of no more than 12, will review all core principles and interventions of EFT.  There will be further application of the EFT model by review of clinical recordings/cases brought by participants, and more viewing of training tapes. Core skills will be practised in role plays.
