Effat's Main Approaches
Past experiences and burdens cause the individual to feel the past in present time. People can be liberated from the burden and pain of old wounds and trauma via practice of IFS and IFIO. Depending on the needs of her clients, Effat also draws upon various therapeutic modalities including client-centred therapy, acceptance and commitment (ACT); cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), internal family system (IFS) therapy, couple therapy (IFIO), clinical hypnosis, and NeurOptimal ® Neurofeedback, which is effective for ADHD, autism, anxiety, depression, and more. Effat does not offer services to her clients that she hasn't used on herself and found helpful.
