The process of emotionally-focused couple therapy addresses the core emotional experience of each partner, while helping both partners change painful, negative cycles of interaction.
With an emphasis on promoting safe attachment, EFT is a powerful process that deepens a couple’s emotional bond, restores intimacy, and creates secure connection. When couples learn how to comfort and reassure one another, they are increasingly able to resolve differences independently. Fear and helplessness are gradually replaced with trust, mutual accessibility and responsiveness. The process of EFT allows couples to see themselves and each another in a new light, learn how to comfort and be comforted, and move from isolation to safe connection.
