Couples: Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
EFT is an evidence-based therapy model with extensive research backing. Sue Johnson developed, and continues to refine, this method which she outlines in her book for everyday readers, Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love (2008). While in marital distress, the idea that your spouse can be a safe haven and solid rock for you can seems far-reaching. Yet, EFT is an empirically validated process that helps couples find stability and connection with each other. Life will continue to bring storms; EFT offers a way to weather them together instead of seeing your mate as the enemy.
The heart of EFT is to create a bond within your relationship that makes you stronger even after therapy is complete. There are negative cycles that every relationship falls into, but with Emotion-Focused Couples therapy you can learn how to change these patterns and see your partner with fresh eyes. Wouldn’t it be incredible to find your greatest ally in your partner?
