The session shown is of an unedited live consultation where the previous withdrawn male partner is now accessible and the therapist works with the inability of the female partner to trust, reach and engage with her mate. The session explicitly shows how the therapist works with blocks to the creation of key new responses and shapes bonding moments. This is a classic illustration of Stage 2 EFT in action and shows the moment to moment creation of secure connection. Therapist interventions will be outlined and discussed.
