Eltham Case Presentation Series

Saturday 8th June, 2019

Certified EFT Therapist Dr. Thomas Dellmann will present clips from a session where a couple with a complex cycle transition from Stage 1 to Stage 2 of the EFT Model. Thomas first explores the couple’s cycle in more depth, blocking escape routes and enhancing both partner’s understanding of the effects they have on each other. An enactment facilitates the couple’s transition into Stage 2, opening up never-before-experienced vulnerabilities, and helping each partner get to know each other’s deepest fears.

Q&A follows, as we delve into the structure and art of EFT, as well as the therapist’s thinking. You will have a chance to reflect on your own practice as you network with peers over your morning tea. Book Here.
