Transforming Emotional Pain: An Illustration of Emotion-Focused Therapy video

In an engaging EFT session, Ladislav Timulak helps the client, Claire, to explore the emotional impact of a very traumatic experience associated with the birth of her daughter. Together they examine the links between the trauma and the core painful emotions that Claire is experiencing. They also identify and articulate Claire's unmet emotional needs and work to evoke compassionate emotional responses to these needs.

In a separate commentary on the EFT session, Ladislav describes the therapeutic strategy that guided him and talks about EFT theory as it relates to practice. He also shares the personal journey that led him to EFT together with the basic principles of the approach.

In discussion with counsellor Ray van der Poel, Ladislav provides an overview of EFT with a specific focus on research developments that have contributed to shaping the approach.
