About Connexion

  1. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

EFT is developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and Dr. Les Greenberg and has been validated by over 20 years of empirical research. EFT approaches include elements of experiential therapy (such as person-centered therapy and Gestalt therapy), systemic therapy, and attachment theory. EFT approaches are based on the premise that human emotions are connected to human needs, and therefore emotions have an innately adaptive potential that, if activated and worked through, can help people change problematic emotional states and interpersonal relationships. Emotion-focused therapy for individuals was originally known as process-experiential therapy.

2. Focusing

Focusing is a psychotherapeutic process developed by Eugene Gendlin after 15 years of research analysing what made psychotherapy effective. The conclusion he found that the successful patient is able to adopt a kind of open, non-judging attention to an internal vague internal bodily awareness—or "felt sense" — which contains information that, if attended to or focused on, holds the key to the resolution of the problems.  Focusing helps to pause the on-going situation,  become clear on what one feels or wants, obtain new insights about one's situation, and create a space for new possibilities for carrying forward.

 

3. Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing is a popular body-oriented therapy to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the 45 years life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, etiology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. His body experience therapy is born on this basis that human beings are inherently capable of overcoming the effects of trauma, and  can rebuild self-adaptation ability, so that traumatized people can re-experience the vitality, integrity and freedom again.  The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is a key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
