Come in for a Relationships Tune-up in February 2020
It’s the month of LOVE at Kundalini House!
Therefore it’s a good time to reflect on your relationships and think about what’s working and what isn’t.
Your resident couples and relationships therapist offers a little food for thought on LOVE to help nourish you and recharge your relationships.
As humans we have an innate need to feel attached and comforted by a few irreplaceable others. One partner’s best attempts to get emotional needs met unfortunately can trigger the other to react defensively, creating distance and pain, rather than closeness and emotional safety. Most couples know this dance well, but are helpless to change the patterns. Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is a gentle non blaming approach to couple distress that supports safe, close and loving bonds while also increasing resilience and reducing overall stress for each individual.
“Forget about learning how to argue better, analysing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Instead, recognise and admit that you are emotionally attached to, and dependant on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. EFT focuses on creating and strengthening this emotional bond by identifying the key moments that foster an adult loving relationship.” – Dr Sue Johnson
EFT for couples has been extensively researched over the last 25 years, with a substantial body of research supporting its effectiveness. Studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements in marital satisfaction. EFT is usually a short term approach (8-20 sessions), a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 80’s by Susan Johnson and Leslie Greenberg.
I can help you to find ways to send clear messages to your partner about your emotional needs in ways that do not trigger the defences and fears of your partner. We take you to the heart of the matter by uncovering the deeper needs and fears that often go unheard and by helping partners express these deeper feelings to each other.
This is how each couple can create a new dance of connection, safety and security.
As a special gift in this month of LOVE I would like to invite you to come and receive a relationship tune up!
Come with your partner or by yourself.
The first session is half price if you book in February and mention this article.
