The Centre for Emotion Focused Practice offers programs in schools for young people. These programs for school children are underpinned by person-centred, existential and humanistic philosophies, utilising process experiential emotion focused techniques.
These techniques are engaging and accessible for young people and are far better than the traditional pure ‘talking’ or cognitive processes.
The Centre for Emotion Focused Practice is a safe, secure, and ethical place where children can get the opportunity to explore their emotions and forge out an effective, and long lasting change.
The core system we follow here at the Centre for Emotion Focused Therapy is the PEEFT.
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.
In other words, this form of therapy effective therapy helps the practitioner to identify and explore the problem and use that knowledge to transform and incorporate the child’s experiences from an emotional point of view. Processing the emotions along with analyzing them with the help of the therapist allows the individual to work an effective and long term change.
