Orange County EFT Community Meetings

Our next  meeting is Friday, April 6, 2018, from 11 am – 1 pm at Diamond Family Counseling, 4000 Birch St. #203, Newport Beach, CA.

Cost: Free

We will be covering  “Leaning into emotions that are difficult for the therapist (e.g. anger, sadness, etc.)”. We will do a role play and process the role play, then we will divide up into small groups to work on your difficult emotions and how to deal with them. Please feel free to bring your lunch and eat during the meeting. Come and practice your EFT skills with us! Everyone is welcome. Hope to see you there!

Some comments from participants in Betsy and Bahar’s workshop:

“This was an amazing experience – incredible approach to strengthening a significant relationship. So glad I was able to attend with my fiancé. Gave us tools to use for a better life.”

“The workshop surpassed all my expectations. I was worried that bringing up feelings and issues might harm my relationship. But with the tools I learned to use, it felt very safe, and the conversations between my partner and me were well received on both sides and brought us closer together.”
