Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the most well-researched and the most effective type of therapy for couples. It’s about attachment and stopping those endless cycles of conflict.
If you come in, I am sure I will recommend you read Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson who pioneered this work, so start reading it today and give me a call.
In 2016, after completing a four year advanced training program for Emotionally Focused Therapy, I earned my Certification. This is a prestigious, internationally recognized designation and achieved by only 7% of my initial group. For me, it was akin to getting a second Masters.
This work has revolutionized my practice.
EFT focuses on building safe, secure attachment and stopping those endless cycles of conflict…on stopping them, yes, but even more importantly on gaining confidence about how to repair and reconnect.
You know…you start out arguing about some trivial thing and all of a sudden, you’re in a full blown fight. Later, you can’t even remember why you’re upset with each other or what started it, but you do remember feeling mad, sad, misunderstood and alone. And more.
