Book appointment

Dr. Tat-Ying Wong is a family physician currently providing psychotherapy to patients at the Grace Health Centre.

He follows a biopsychosocial model of health that is attachment-focused and growth-oriented, emphasizing secure connections and an integrated sense of self.

As a physician, Tat-Ying (TY) recognized that treatments for relationship distress, a deadly and prevalent chronic illness, were inadequate. Since learning that Emotionally Focused Therapy (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, Hold Me Tight® Conversations for Connection (HMTC4C), and Hold Me Tight® Let Me Go (HMTLMG) training videos with Chinese clients.

He is a registered marriage and family therapist in Ontario and a Clinical Member and Supervisor of Ontario Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT), Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (CAMFT) and American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Tat-Ying is the only Cantonese speaking Certified EFT International Trainer and has trained thousands of professional helpers locally and internationally. He is also trained in EMDR level I and II and in group crisis intervention.

He is the Program Director in the Marriage & Family Therapy Internship Program at Grace Health Centre. Tat-Ying has personally trained over 200 therapists and physicians, including most of the Chinese MFTs in Toronto.

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, Dr. Wong is passionate about equipping Family Physicians to work effectively with couples and families (www.cpd.utoronto.ca/cpfm/faculty). He is also interested in equipping faith leaders as an 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.

Tat-Ying 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, an incredible gift of healing relationships and deep attachment wounds, with Chinese around the world.
