On principle EFA does not require Focusing Teachers to be psychotherapists. Focusing is a human process accessible to anyone and applicable in many fields, and people from many walks of life may become Focusing Teachers. Some EFA Focusing Teachers are also Focusing Oriented Therapists and some were trained as psychotherapists before learning to teach Focusing. If you want a psychotherapist, whether Focusing Oriented or otherwise, or any other type of therapist who is also a Focusing Teacher, it is up to you to determine their credentials, to check their professional affiliations and qualifications and to decide whether this is the right person for you. EFA is not qualified to accredit psychotherapy practitioners, nor to recommend any therapeutic method over any other.
