Emotionally Focused Therapy

Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is a short term psychotherapy approach for working with couples. Based on the principles of emotion theory and attachment theory, it is humanistic in nature. Emotions in and of themselves have potential which can help clients change problematic emotional states or unwanted self-experiences. As emotions are connected to our most essential needs they prepare and guide us in important relational situations. Clients undergoing EFT are helped to better identify, experience, explore, make sense of, transform and flexibly manage emotional experiences.
