Marriage

 

In my years of working with couples I am very pleased to find an approach that really works called Emotionally Focused Therapy, EFT.  Dr Susan Johnson, researched and video taped couples and has a step by step approach that has shown measurable improvement in over 85% of couples who complete the therapy.   EFT is the science of how to create more loving and secure bonds in our most important relationshiops.  I recommend reading Dr Susan Johnson’s book, Hold Me Tight, Seven Conversations For a Lifetime of Love.  She states, “Love is not the icing on the cake of life.  It is a basic primary need, like oxygen or water.  Once we understand and accept this, we can more easily get to the heart of relationship problems.  We are swamped by what neuroscientist Jaak Pankespp calls ‘primal panic’…and do one of two things: we either become demanding and clinging in an effort to draw comfort and reassurance from our partner or we withdraw and detach in an attempt to soothe and protect ourselves.”  EFT is a caring and compassionate approach that first seeks to understand and validate, then help a couple see how they may get into negative cycles.  The goal is to safely be able to share deeper needs and feelings and be heard and understood by our partner. Go to www.iceeft.com to find more information and research.

New speciality with Couples expecting a baby.  I now offer meditation sessions for couples expecting a child.  I can go to your home and do a session that lasts about one to one and a half hours.  These tuning into your child sessions help with the bonding process with the child and helps couples bond with each other.  Although not scientifically researched, the meditations have resulted in breach babies rotating into the right position within one week of the meditation.
