Korey is a certified Emotion Focused Therapist (EFT). She obtained her certification with the ICEFT. EFT is the foundation of her couple therapy work. Korey commenced working with couples in 1993 while on a placement with Relationships Australia. Since this time Korey has continued to undertake specialist training in working with couples. In particular Korey has been interested in understanding how best to assist couples when there has been a significant traumatic or hurtful event/s.
The most satisfying and fulfilling part of couple work for Korey which she finds heart-warming is: hearing a couple speak about how they are now attuned to each other.
