Certified EFT Therapist and Supervisor

I love to supervise; probably because I am a natural teacher but also aided by courses in supervision to refine my skills.  I believe I teach what I need to learn and I am passionate about doing and learning more and more about EFT.  And, lastly I have lots of positive feedback from my supervisees that matches with my enjoyment and satisfaction of learning EFT.  My supervisees reflect both the hard and intense work needed to learn EFT.  I see a sacredness in helping people re-connect to themselves and others; to find the depths of a real and secure attachment that can remain with them for the rest of their lives.

In their own words here are 4 supervisees who have been with me for varying lengths of time:

“Murray is a caring and gifted supervisor who brings a sharp intelligence and focused dedication to his practice and supervision of EFT.  I consider myself fortunate to have him as an EFT supervisor and mentor. His nuanced knowledge and passion for EFT has offered a platform for my ever-evolving understanding and integration of EFT in my practice with couples. It has been a true privilege working with Murray”.  Sherry Antonucci, Edmonton, (3 years of supervision, bi-weekly)

“I highly recommend Murray Armstrong as a supervisor! The supervision he provides spans precision with respect to EFT skills, a great depth of understanding of the map of EFT,  safe collaboration around exploring EFT practices, and wise, compassionate support around self of therapist issues. He has been supportive to me through the beginning EFT stages to, now, my training as a supervisor. I cannot recommend him highly enough, for anyone who wants to really get at the beating heart of EFT”. Glenyss Carney, Missoula Montana (bi-weekly supervision for two years)

“I have had supervision with Murray for 7 months now.  I appreciate Murray’s skills in helping me determine a specific focus, helping me isolate and develop skills and sharing his positive and supportive attitude.  He works with me where I’m at in my learning and uses an emotionally focused approach to model these skills and help draw out learnings from me.  I feel very comfortable working with Murray.  Thank you Murray.”  Colleen Barss, Regina, Saskatchewan

“Murray is a very skilled clinician and supervisor with a head and heart that are congruent with the EFT model.  He is able to provide a very rich and safe experience for the supervisee through his depth of knowledge, clinical skill and kindness.”  Heidi Edgar, Edmonton (bi-weekly supervision for two and a half years).


I have been a therapist for over 30 years. I began working primarily with individuals, but Systems Theory has been an important part of my understanding of personal issues. My work and interest in the dynamics between couples led to teaching Couples Counselling at City University for 6 years, using primarily the Gottman Approach. When Emotion focused Therapy (EFT) came along, the advantages of this approach were immediately clear. I took an Externship with Sue Johnson in Ottawa in 2013. My training continued through Core Skills training and EFT supervision. Further study in EFT led to Certification in 2016. I began training as an EFT Supervisor in 2017.
At all levels of EFT training, doing therapy from this perspective has led to increased personal growth for my clients, my supervisees and myself. It is a process of self discovery, done from an attachment framework, with the support of others at all levels of practice. I recommend this process as a method of furthering our EFT skills with both individuals and couples.
