The Centre for Emotion Focused Practice (CEFP) has emerged out of a need and desire to create a community for both clients and practitioners where emotion focused practice is combined with the Rogerian principles of integrity, respect, authenticity and genuineness.

Process-Experiential Emotion Focused Therapy (PEEFT) or more commonly referred to as Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) integrates experiential perspectives, cognitive science, existential thought and contemporary emotion theory.  It develops emotional intelligence, integrates experience and offers restructuring and transformation.
