Isa Sadighpur


The Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy EFT has greatly enriched my therapeutic work with couples. It is a valuable source and support in the process, to lead couples back into a loving and emotionally secure connection.


I am pleased to offer you in Berlin an opportunity to learn and experience EFT in the Externship with Yolanda van Hockauf. I'm sure it will be a valuable asset for you and your work.


With joy I also offer ‚Hold-me-tight’ workshops in Berlin, the couples participate with enthusiasm and benefit from it over a long run.

The first externship conducted by Yolanda von Hockauf took place in 2012. Susan Johnson came in 2013 at the invitation of the Hamburg colleague Oscar Holzberg to Germany. With 130 participants the basic training was a great success. 2013 also the first Core Skills training was held by the Dutch EFT trainer Berry Aarnoudse.
