As EFT therapists we are involved in what Alan Schore calls the “communicating cure.” The cure happens as we develop a strong therapeutic alliance so we can regulate and expand clients emotional experiencing.
It it out of our ability to access and expand emotion the co-creation of corrective emotional experiences emerges.
This means it's important for us to maintain a confident stance, feeling sure inside of ourselves, so we can be empathic and attuned.
Tips for developing this confident stance include:
- learning more about attachment
- getting plenty of EFT consultation
- intentional tape viewing
- developing shame resiliency
- learning what position in the negative cycle you're most prone to taking and developing ways out, and
- practicing in session transparency
Remember what Sue often says, “The answer is emotional presence.”
