Dr. T. Leanne Campbell
Dr. Leanne Campbell is co-director of the Vancouver Island Centre for EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and Campbell & Fairweather Psychology Group and is an Honorary Research Associate of Vancouver Island University. Trained by Dr. Sue Johnson in the early 1990s, she 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 about three decades. By request, Dr. Campbell also provides personalized results-driven ‘intensives’ (i.e., ‘boot camps’) for couples motivated to improve their relationship and/or address ‘attachment injuries’ related to infidelity, other significant life events and/or transitions (e.g., loss or trauma).
Known for her expertise in trauma, Dr. Campbell has provided hundreds of psychological assessment reports for forensic/legal and personal injury matters being considered before various levels of Court. She also is regularly called upon to provide expert opinion, 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 a full-time private practice, with a primary focus in the areas of relationship strain, trauma, grief and loss, Dr. Campbell currently co-manages a multi-site practice comprised of twenty-five clinicians and is a site co-ordinator for an Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) outcome study.
An active ICEEFT Certified Trainer, Leanne trains professionals around the globe and is involved in the development of various materials including DVDs, online educational/training programs, books, workbooks, and articles. Most recently, she co-authored the first basic EFIT (Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy) text with Dr. Sue Johnson, A Primer for Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT): Cultivating Fitness and Growth in Every Client (Routledge, 2021), as well as a workbook for therapists training in EFT (see Furrow et al., Routledge, 2022).
Leanne is well-known for her warmth and ability to develop strong therapeutic alliances with clients, helping them explore and shift from distressing cycles of interaction to closeness and understanding.
