As a physician, TY recognized that treatments for relationship distress, a deadly and prevalent chronic illness, were inadequate. Since learning EFT cured 3 out of 4 couples with relationship distress, he has trained thousands of Chinese professional helpers in North America and Asia in EFT and produced hundreds of EFIT, EFCT, EFFT, HMT/C4C, HMTLMG training videos with Chinese clients. As an AAMFT, CAMFT, OAMFT Approved Supervisor and Program Director in the MFT Internship Program at Grace Health Centre, TY has personally trained over 200 therapists and physicians, including most of the Chinese MFT’s in Toronto (www.gracehealthcentre.ca/counseling ).
As Lecturer and Faculty in the award winning Counselling and Psychotherapy in Family Medicine Program in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto, TY is passionate about equipping Family Physicians to work effectively with couples and families ( https://www.cpd.utoronto.ca/cpfm/faculty/ ). He is also interested in equipping faith leaders as Adjunct Faculty in Pastoral Counselling and Family Ministry at the Chinese Canadian School of Theology and Adjunct Faculty at the Alliance Bible Seminary Centre of Canada. TY is on staff in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the Humber River Hospital, the first lean, green and all digital hospital in Canada.
He continues to develop evidence based Chinese psycho-education and therapy resources ( www.reconnecteft.com ) and has conducted and published the first EFT/HMT/C4C outcome study with Chinese couples. His vision is to share EFT, this incredible gift of healing relationships and deep attachment wounds, with Chinese around the world.
