Dr. Leanne Campbell is co-director of the Vancouver Island Centre for EFT and Campbell & Fairweather Psychology Group and is an Honorary Research Associate of Vancouver Island University. Although best known as a couple therapy until recently, individual and family therapy have always been a part of the EFT model and were integral to Dr. Campbell's training with Dr. Sue Johnson in the early 1990s. Dr. Campbell has continued to work in the EFT model since that time, and has provided psychotherapy services to hundreds of individuals, couples, and families over the past three decades.
Known for her expertise in the area of trauma, Dr. Campbell also has provided hundreds of psychological assessment reports for forensic/legal and personal injury matters being considered before various levels of Courts. She is regularly called upon to provide expert opinion surrounding Canadian Forces Base, Veterans Affairs Canada, Royal Canadian Mounted Police/ RCMP (and other first responder) cases, as well as psychological evaluations for various insurance companies and bodies involved in adjudicating personal injury and other trauma-based claims.
In addition to maintaining an active and full-time private practice, with a primary focus in the areas of trauma, grief and loss, Dr. Campbell currently co-manages a two-site practice comprised of over 20 clinicians and is a site co-ordinator for an Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) outcome study.
An active ICEEFT certified trainer, Leanne has been providing trainings in EFT over the past 20 years and has similarly been involved in the development of various training materials including training DVDs, on-line educational/training programs, books, workbooks and articles.
