Have you ever felt like your emotional tap has been opened and won’t close even after a therapy session is over? 💦💦💦
That’s because dug up stuff has a way of lingering and while it’s not entirely preventable, in EFT sessions our effort is to close this emotional tap before closing the session. ☔️☔️☔️
Helping the client sneak away from the problem, making the problem less specific by the end of the session and preventing overwhelm by doing box or other techniques really helps in minimising the distress that the work during the session might cause. That’s why we use protective distancing techniques in EFT when we’re dealing with trauma.
Although we cannot eliminate distress, we can surely try to minimise it.
