Couples therapy is difficult if you do not have a map to the potent emotional drama that is a couple fighting for their relationship. Even experienced clinicians may face challenges in their ability to address common barriers that prevent effective relationship repair. Successfully treating couples who have escalating interactions and potentially overwhelming emotions can prove as difficult as addressing emotional shut down and withdrawal. Sue will share the EFT targeted approach that helps shape effective and lasting change in relationship satisfaction and attachment security.
