NYCEFT PODCAST

Ep 4 – How To Begin Sessions: “How are you?” is not enough (Ep 1 of a 3 episode series)

Do you ever get stuck on how to begin your sessions? Do you find that just saying “How are you?” leads to a lack focus and wastes precious time? Do you struggle to find the words to describe the work ahead? If so, this series of three episodes of The NYCEFT Podcast is for you! Listen in as Wendy Tomkiel, experienced EFT therapist and supervisor, and founding member of NYCEFT shares her expertise and wisdom on how to open the first session, the individual sessions, the fourth assessment session, ongoing Stage 1 sessions vs Stage II sessions, and how to begin sessions with couples with different cycles, e.g. attack/attack, withdraw/withdraw. Each episode with Jeff and Wendy is packed with specific tips and languaging that you can use right away with your couples.

In this episode (Ep 1 of the three part series) Wendy first begins by highlighting that what we say at the beginning of sessions is crucial for creating the all important safe alliance with your clients. Wendy then expertly guides us on how to open the very first minute of the very first session, how to respond to clients’ questions, what to share about yourself, what to say about the model, the assessment process, and much more!
