What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?
The Relationship House offers high quality therapy services through Emotionally Focused Therapy. Our approach is attachment based and trauma informed, creating a safe and secure environment for couples, individuals and families to work through and resolve personal and relational issues.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, is a powerful approach to helping distressed couples, families, and individuals. EFT is a humanistic, systemic and experiential psychotherapy that integrates the science of attachment in the treatment of emotional, mental, and relational health. Attachment science has expanded our understanding of individual dysfunction and health, as well as the nature of love relationships and family bonds. Attachment views human beings as innately relational, social and wired for intimate bonding with others. The EFT model starts by acknowledging that we are biologically hardwired to create and maintain strong emotional ties with our partner and loved ones. It hones in on key emotions that shape individual experience and intimate bonds. When we feel secure in our most important relationships, we are more able to fully thrive, as well as alleviate the stress of life's challenges. We all want a positive answer to the questions "Are you there for me?", "Can I count on you?", "Do I matter to you?" We want to know that our loved ones are accessible, responsive, and engaged with us.
EFT has proven success in treating relationship problems, anxiety, depression, stress, attachment and trauma. The American Psychological Association (APA) has acknowledged EFT as meeting the gold standard for the most effective evidenced based therapy approach for couples. In addition to its effectiveness with couples, EFT has been successfully adapted to treat individuals and families. The Relationship House offers Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT), Couples Therapy (EFCT) and Family Therapy (EFFT), as well as Emotionally Focused informed Sex Therapy.
