Dr. David R. Fairweather is co-founder and director of the Vancouver Island Centre for EFT, and Campbell & Fairweather Psychology Group in Nanaimo, B.C. His passion for emotion in psychotherapy dates back to his doctoral years during which he published widely in the area of psychotherapy process research, with a particular focus on how exemplary, distinguished therapists promote and use strong feeling expression in psychotherapy sessions. From 1996 until 2006, in addition to maintaining a private practice, David worked as a psychologist and supervising psychologist within the federal correctional system. During his past 20 years in private practice in Nanaimo, he has focused extensively on the treatment of law enforcement personnel, other first responders, serving military and veterans, injured workers, as well as providing hundreds of psychological assessments in areas including trauma, personal injury, work injury, and for other forensic contexts. He has also served as an expert witness at various levels of court. Trained by Dr. Sue Johnson, co-originator of EFT, in the early through mid-1990s, he has maintained a dedicated interest in EFT therapy for almost three decades. Known for his empathic style and therapeutic use of laughter and humour, and with a particular expertise and interest in working with trauma and attachment injury, he helps couples move away from the rigid negative patterns that keep them stuck, and toward a place of more authentic emotional contact, thus opening up the space for partners to find new possibilities and awareness, and to create satisfying and fulfilling ways-of-being together. As an internationally certified EFT trainer, he has also collaborated in the development of teaching materials including DVDs, and has served extensively as an instructor, mentor, and supervisor of other mental health professionals in Canada and the U.S.
