EFT Couples Therapy

Tim and Amy spent four days in November (2016) at the externship training for Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.  Here are some takeaways that they are now incorporating into their sessions with couples.

Tim – Couples cannot express their deepest, most painful emotions and needs until safety is completely and consistently established.  We need to allow couples to be in the stage of therapy they are in without trying to push them forward too quickly.

Amy – What one is displaying outwardly to their spouse is often a cover for a much deeper, more vulnerable emotion.  Therapy allows us to connect down into those emotions and create enactments for expression of these deeper emotions and needs.

Tim – There is nothing more impactful than relentless, empathetic curiosity.

Welcome, Dion!

Please join us in warmly welcoming Dion Davis to the team.   Dion became an official staff therapist at Kainos this week after successfully completing our six week pre-employment training course.    Check back soon for his biography.

Welcome, Dion!

Congrats, Tim!
