What is Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)?


EFT for couples

Emotion Focused Therapy (also known as Emotionally Focused Therapy or emotionally focused therapy EFT)  is a clinically proven and effective process for helping couples alter negative patterns of interaction. This therapy is based on research of  adult attachment needs for safe secure relationships.

EFT for individuals

I primarily use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)  for individual therapy. EFT is a highly researched and clinically  proven therapy for personal change.  Contrary to some therapy approaches  that support minimizing or marginalizing emotion, EFT supports  achieving a clear understanding of your emotions, regulating them  when necessary, and using emotion to determine what you need in the  present moment. This supports resilience and clearer decision making  which leads to  resolution of previously troubling thoughts, behaviors  and relationship interactions. 

I am a Certified EFT Therapist.
