Dr. Jeff Cunningham earned a Masters in Counselling Psychology (MS) from the University of Kentucky, and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Argosy University in Minneapolis.

He is a Licensed Psychologist in Kentucky and a Registered Psychologist in Newfoundland (www.nbep.info). He practiced for one year with the Memorial University of Newfoundland Counselling Centre and in 2001 helped found the Bridges Program at Eastern Health, a psychotherapy service for young people at risk for suicide and other immediate problems.  A trauma specialist, he has also practiced extensively with adolescents and adults searching for balance and direction in many forms.

During his life, Jeff has developed an abiding interest in meditation and mind-body spiritual practice that guides his life and professional work.

Jeff now practices psychotherapy from an existential-psychodynamic perspective, believing that when we embrace life fully, a great peace can be found.
