Exploring Emotionally Focused Therapy For Individual & Couples Counseling
Humans are emotionally bonding creatures. Our feelings influence all of our choices and drive us toward other humans for safety and connection. We thrive when our emotional needs are met and we feel secure inside and with others, and we flounder, struggle, and become depressed, anxious, or traumatized in the absence of a secure attachment connection.
Emotionally-focused therapy is considered one the most effective therapy models for individuals, couples and families because it helps us understand our emotions, identify negative patterns, and heal old wounds that cause depression, anxiety, stress and unhappiness. By creating more security within and between you and your loved ones, EFT helps you establish meaningful, long-lasting relationships, feel safer in your sense of self, and learn to cope with life's challenges in a healthy way.
