Kansas City Therapist
Certified EFT Therapist
– Bethany Butler Myers –
Each of us are designed to grow and to flourish. Sometimes, however, life circumstances become so difficult or confusing that we feel like our ability to thrive is interrupted. At times we may even feel that we have lost touch with the most human and valued pieces of ourselves.
“How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?”Carl Rogers
I believe that when an environment of safety, trust, and acceptance is created, each of us can re-engage with the growth process. We can then, once again, experience fulfillment, contentment, and connection with others.
Healing from emotional or relational injuries is possible through engaging present moment experiences in a way that brings understanding. This work opens up the possibility to further growth. Through an integrative and holistic approach, I collaborate with clients on their journey.
I have had the privilege of working with individuals and families for more than 20 years, and am very passionate about helping my clients find a deeper level of connection with themselves and with others. I am recognized by ICEEFT as Certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy as a Therapist and as a Supervisor, providing consultation and supervision for other therapists learning EFT.
Emotionally Focused Therapy is an approach to psychotherapy that is based in attachment theory and is empirically validated as helping individuals and couples create new ways of managing distressing moments in their lives and relationships.
The work I have done with individuals has been profoundly satisfying to me. Walking along side someone as they take the brave steps toward exploring themselves more deeply and understanding their reality more clearly is both sacred and powerful. Helping individuals find relief from the suffering that often comes from stress and loneliness is part of the work that I love doing.
I look forward to engaging you along your journey toward a more satisfying life.
