Welcome Future NTEFTC members

NTEFTC Member Benefits


The North Texas Emotionally Focused Therapy Community (NTEFTC) serves to promote the mission of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) which is dedicated to promoting secure, resilient, and successful relationships between partners and within families.

Our mission includes the further expansion of the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) model among helping professionals in the counseling, marriage and family, social work, psychology and ministerial professions in the Dallas/Fort Worth/Mid-cities portion of north Texas.

We hope to do this by supporting EFT externships and EFT Core Skills training and planning introductory workshops, quarterly seminars, “Hold Me Tight Workshops” and other events for individuals who have had some level of training in EFT or who are wanting more exposure to this powerful model.

We also seek to develop a safe and secure group of like-minded professionals who would like to share the EFT journey with safe, passionate, and skilled colleagues for the purpose of practicing and deepening one’s skills and supporting one another in the journey of learning and growth. Another aspect of our mission is to educate health professionals and increase public awareness about the efficacy of EFT and its role in strengthening relationship bonds.
