Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples

EFT is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the early 80's by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg. EFT is a non-blaming method of therapy that helps couples uncover and understand the negative cycles that get them stuck in conflict, deadlock or painful withdrawal from one another. When a couple can understand the nature of their negative cycles, and how they get into them, they can lessen the negative cycle's impact, heal from them or, ultimately, avoid them more easily. But the major goal of EFT is for couples to devedlop a new and gratifying way of relating that focuses on attachment needs - being emotionally accessible and responsive to one another - so that they can have a relationship based on healthy adult attachment which makes for a safe haven of being there for one another in a supportive and loving way.
