Safer Together:
Working with Trauma & Dissociation in EFT Couples Therapy
An Online Course

When we are working with survivors of trauma,

couples therapy can get very choppy!


We experience:

  • Big blow-ups and high levels of reactivity;

  • Very complicated cycles that are hard to track;

  • Confusion about attachment positions;

  • Losing track of the EFT map;

  • An inability to maintain momentum or achieve de-escalation;

  • Our own hopelessness, irritation and despair.


Trying to stay on target as the trauma triggers fly can feel like a game of Whack-a-Mole...

Registration for this course is now closed. Please contact me if you'd like to be notified when this course is next offered.

Healing is Possible

If you wonder whether secure attachment is even achievable for some of your traumatized clients, come to this course and explore how targeted adaptations to the EFCT process can begin to make real healing and safe connection possible!
