Until a couple is able to identify, acknowledge and ultimately forgive injuries, an emotional gulf persists between them. No matter how disatisfying things have become and how unhappy or angry partners may be, they each need to feel safe in coming together to work out their problems. Each partner needs to understand the emotions dictating their actions. The emotions behind perceived problems are the key to understanding each other. The focus of EFT is to help partner's to understand more clearly each other's deepest emotions. I get to the heart of the matter! As a certified EFT therapist, supervisor, and trainer, Sam's expertise in this model of therapy is recognized by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT). The primary goals of certification are to promote excellence in the practice of EFT and to ensure maintenance of these standards in both the supervision and training of this approach.
