What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a compassionate and scientifically supported therapy that helps couples strengthen their emotional connections. At its core, EFT uses the principles of attachment theory to help you understand and reshape the way you experience emotions and interact with the people closest to you.

Whether you’re struggling with personal anxiety or challenges within your relationship, EFT offers a pathway to develop deeper, more secure bonds with yourself and your partner.

By focusing on improving emotional understanding and communication, EFT aims to transform the distressing patterns in your life into positive, nurturing relationships. It’s a therapeutic approach designed to support everyone seeking to enhance their emotional well-being and create lasting, meaningful connections.
