What is Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples?
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving the emotional bond between people, particularly in romantic relationships.
The therapist helps the couple to identify and express their feelings and needs, and teaches them to respond to each other in ways that create a sense of safety and security. This helps to build a deeper connection and understanding between partners, leading to greater intimacy and satisfaction in the relationship.
EFT is based on the idea that people's emotions are at the core of their behavior, and that by addressing these emotions, couples can create more positive and fulfilling relationships. The therapist helps couples to identify negative patterns in their communication and behavior, and then provides guidance and support in creating new, more positive patterns that enhance emotional connection and intimacy.
Through the process of EFT, couples or individuals can build stronger, more secure relationships by learning to communicate and connect with each other in a more emotionally fulfilling way.
