Primary therapeutic approaches

The following links will give you more information about different therapies that I am either trained in, I have found valuable, or both.

ICEEFT – the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy
This is the headquarters of EFT, which is changing how we work with relationships.

 ISTDP – Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
This site has a good introduction to this approach, which provides a powerful and research-validated roadmap for working with our symptoms, emotions and thoughts.

AEDP – Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy
AEDP is another research-validated therapy that works with Attachment Theory to help develop emotional flexibility and relieve symptoms in shorter time frames than traditional therapy.
