Emotion Focused Therapy
“We must recognize that we are more than “homo sapiens’. We are ‘homo vinculum’ -the one who bonds with others. And these bonds are what will save us. They always have.”
Dr. Sue Johnson
Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is a research based approach to couples counseling. EFT is based in attachment theory and provides a structured framework in which counselors guide clients toward learning new patterns of behavior utilizing emotions. Research into EFT has shown 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and 90% report significant improvements in the relationship.
