Often couples get caught in painful patterns of interaction and experience deep hurt and distress. This dance keeps them from feeling a safe and secure emotional bond. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) views emotion as the transformative element in therapy and is seen as the music that is used for couples to create a new dance. Often presenting issues such as infidelity, life transitions and ongoing conflict bring couples to therapy and to a point of desperation. The goal of EFT is to help couples move underneath the painful cycle in order to enter into deeper levels of security and connection. With this secure base, couples then have the ability to address issues such as infertility, grief, depression, anxiety and trauma in a deeply connected way through the EFT process.
