Therapeutic Presence in EFT: Cultivating an Empathic Way of Being to Attune to Feelings

Therapeutic presence is a way of being in which the therapist is fully engaged and fully present to the moment-by-moment changing feelings of the client. When a therapist is emotionally present to a client, the therapist does not discount or distract the feelings of the client, but simply stay with the client’s here-and-now feelings so they can be fully understood and processed.

Mental health professionals who are emotionally present have the capacity to empathically attune to the here-and-now feelings of the client so healing can take place. Therapeutic presence is the foundation of empathic responsiveness to feelings in Emotion-Focused Therapy for individuals and couples. It is the best gift a therapist can give to a client.

This is a highly experiential course that focuses on cultivating therapeutic presence.
