Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a structured therapeutic approach based on methods designed to help people accept, express, regulate and make sense of and transform emotion. EFT is an evidence-based approach that focuses on development of emotional intelligence as well as the importance of secure relationships. Emotion-focused therapists help clients to experience their emotions in a safe setting so that rather than avoiding or controlling their emotions, clients learn to use them as a guide to what is important or necessary in their lives. EFT has been especially helpful in treating couples and has a proven track record of helping relationships function at healthier levels.

Emotionally-Focused Therapy is an evidence-based model which helps get to the bottom of underlying issues that create friction in relationships, so that conflicts can be addressed at their source, rather than going around and around in endless, unresolved cycles. Partners able to become fearlessly honest and vulnerable about their needs can better work as a team to meet one another's needs.
We get a lot of messages about emotions - maybe you are a sensitive person who feels a lot of things, or perhaps you are a person who has a hard time identifying or talking about how you feel. Regardless of where you're at, we will identify what is healthy for you and your relationships by focusing on what you are feeling and how your experiences have impacted your worldview.

Emotionally focused therapy considers the underlying human emotions and experiences that clients are communicating when they initially talk about more specific situations. This approach is especially helpful at moving away from thoughts and beliefs that end up getting debated in relationships, and moving towards the heart of the matter.

I believe we are influenced by how we were raised; regardless of the context, we learn how to say or not say our needs as a human being. EFT allows clients to recognize their patterns and learn to healthy fulfill the attachment needs they seek.

This type of therapy is usually used with couples, however it also is used with families and individuals. The focus is on the feelings associated with being attached to someone we love, including the joy of feeling deeply connected and the sadness of feeling alone. Some goals would be to develop the closeness that you once had with your partner or deepen a relationship with a family member.
