Established in 1999, IEFT’s primary focus is to educate health and allied health practitioners in counselling and therapy skills used in the Emotionally Focused Therapy approach. The Institute is a registered higher education provider within the Foundation Education Group, offering accredited postgraduate education in the important area of Emotionally Focused work.
As part of the Foundation Education Group, IEFT is focused on supporting student outcomes and engaging alumni in lifelong learning and continual development of skills. A core philosophy of the group is to provide students and alumni with educational pathways with relevance across disciplines and employment sectors. The principle of educational pathways is at the centre of IEFT’s engagement with students. While Emotionally Focused Therapy and counselling are highly specialised areas, the discipline may provide additional pathways and linkages to other relevant postgraduate programs for our graduates.
