Kathryn de Bruin

I am a marriage and family therapist in San Diego. As a South African and because of my love for my family and country, I travel to South Africa frequently. My vision has always been to take the best of psychotherapy and to marry this with my vision for seeing growth and health in South Africa.

South Africa has always been a country that has valued family and close connections. I believe that EFT and the therapists who practice this model have a lot to offer the country and its people.

I started practicing EFT in 2006 with couples, families and children.  As my confidence in EFT grew, I sought certification as a certified EFT therapist, EFT supervisor and  then EFT Trainer. I am also a qualified AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy) Supervisor and an RPT (Registered Play Therapy) Supervisor.

I’ve been providing EFT supervision since 2008 to interns and therapists learning this model both in San Diego and around the USA. I have assisted at EFT core skills trainings and externships. Now my longing is to bring this modality to South Africa.

Supervision has been very important and fruitful in my professional life. I believe it is so important for therapists to bless out of their own abundance, by having a place to go to for supervision, consultation and support.  I hope to provide a safe and accessible place for you to grow in your clinical skills and see the results you desire in your own practice. I love working closely with therapists to see them grow in their skills and gain more satisfaction as they see the results from the work that they are doing.
