Jill Fischer is a certified trainer of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and a certified EFT therapist, trainer, and supervisor. Jill is the director of the New England Center for EFT and she has a private practice in Lebanon, New Hampshire devoted exclusively to couples. She offers a variety of trainings for therapists, including an intensive 4-day EFT externship, as well as Hold Me Tight relationship enhancement workshops for couples.
Important relationships in our lives evoke strong emotions, both positive and negative. It is not uncommon for a therapist who hears about negative emotions dominating a love relationship, whether in the context of couple or individual therapy, to conclude that this is an indicator that the couple no longer loves one another or that the relationship isn’t viable. This is rarely the case.
Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), with its grounding in an understanding of adult attachment, offers a radically different perspective. An evidence-based approach with a proven effectiveness rate, EFT provides the therapist with a way of understanding relationship distress and a way to work with it that is of tremendous value. This one-day workshop will introduce the basic theory of EFT and describe the EFT road map for how to move a couple from relationship distress to a secure bond.
