We create relationships from the inside out. When we want to change how our relationships are operating, it’s an inside job.

Mukti Jarvis

Hi, I’m Mukti.

I have 15+ years of professional education and experience in love and connection. Intimate relationship has been my specialist area, since 2002.

I’m certified as an EFT Therapist by the International Center for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Along with being accredited with the international Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC).

I’m one of the first 4 trainers for the Center for Nonviolent Communication in Australia and was a co-founder of Embodying NVC a comprehensive program for integrating NVC for 6 years. I’ve worked along side the late founder of CNVC, Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, co-training, studying intensively with him in Switzerland, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. NVC was a life changing discovery for me.

I found to transform the foundations of a relationship it can require more than learning Nonviolent Communication (NVC) – which is all about how we can consciously create connection.  For this reason I was thrilled to become an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist (EFCT),  in an empirically proven methodology widely considered one of the best couple therapy models available. I’m an early adopter of effective methodologies.

To date I believe I am the only person accredited in EFCT and NVC. Hopefully that changes, because I see these two modalities as an incredibly powerful combination which is widely needed. My own inner work, uniquely shapes how I share NVC and bring EFCT to the individuals and couples, whom I meet.

I’m available via private sessions and via my various online courses and programs in emotionally focused relating.

My work is really not work, I get so much joy out of contributing this way. I can usually be found at my local beach, hill-walking in the early morning, having a cup of tea or swimming.

What is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFCT)?

EFT is extensively empirically validated as the most successful approach for building loving relationships. It has a 75% success rate and even those who don’t complete the process in full, experience a 90% improvement in their relationship. It is irrefutable now that our early attachment bonding experiences shape our relationships. That can be helpful or unhelpful!

EFT has a structured approach – de-escalating the negative cycle; restructuring the bond; integrating the positive cycle. Long after completing this process couples report their relationship is increasingly loving and resilient.

EFT is relevant for ALL relationships!

What is NVC?

NVC is the language of the positive cycle i.e. connection. It is a fabulous way to establish and support directing attention away from our thoughts, negative perceptions of the world and ourselves; instead we direct attention back inward toward making heart-felt interactions that embrace emotions and common human needs —both our own and our partners. NVC stands for Nonviolent Communication. Nonviolent meaning compassionate, honest, present – in the way Gandhi and Martin Luther King used it.

It helps us find and take actions from the energy of love and connection.
