What Is Emotionally Focused Therapy?
Together we look at patterns in the relationship and take steps to create a more secure bond and develop more trust to move the relationship in a healthier, more positive direction.
When to Use?
Couples and families in distress can benefit from EFT learning to improve their relationships. EFT has also been proven effective for couples who are having trouble coping with their own illness or that of a child. EFT can also help individuals with symptoms of depression or trauma.
What to Expect?
As your EFT therapist I observe and help clients tie their behavior to the dynamics in their lives and relationships. This helps create new conversations and interactions which are based on more honest feelings. As your therapist I will encourage you to look at your current emotional issues and then help you discover feelings and emotions that you may not realize you have. Assisting you to learn how to express these emotions in a way that helps you connect, rather than disconnecting with your partner or family. You will learn new patterns how to listen and engage with other’s emotions and discover how these new patters are more productive ways to respond to emotional situations.
I provide couples counseling, helping those in relationships to overcome and navigate through struggles or marital challenges. Being able to engage in and maintain a successful relationship is not an innate quality or an easy task to accomplish; rather, there is a lot we can learn in order to create and sustain a meaningful partnership with another.
Couples therapy helps partners understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship by providing tools to communicate more effectively, negotiate differences, and understand and improve their conflict style. Power struggles, illness, infidelity, sex, anger, and communication problems can contribute to difficulties in relationships. Couples counseling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds bringing you back to a space of love and connection.
