EFT helps individuals change their interactions by altering their emotional reactions during stressful occurrences.
Through individual counseling, people can learn to regulate emotions, learn how to connect with themselves and also connect to others. Terri will work with you on those emotions, so when facing a situation, you can learn to do it differently by changing it and reshaping it.
EFT is a short-term approach to therapy based on the attachment needs of each individual. EFT uncovers and treats deep core issues rather than focusing on surface behaviors. People can greatly benefit from EFT treatment with individual counseling.
Through individual counseling, you can learn how to bring your emotions to the front and center to be dealt with and to bring healing to your life. Terri has a unique way of helping you not only address individual issue but open the door to expand the scope of those individual issues to incorporate the significant relationships in your life. Some or all of these relationships can play a part, whether small or significant, on the stresses in your life and how you move beyond them to a place of well-being.
