Description

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has been heralded by The New York Times and Time magazine as “the couples therapy with the highest rate of success.”

This empirically validated approach has helped thousands of couples repair a broken relationship and grow a deeper more thriving bond.

Couple therapy is chaotic. It can be intimidating to walk partners through rigid patterns of conflict and pain to find the connection they once shared. EFT provides couples and therapist with a practical resource to meet couples in their distress and harness the power of emotion to create change.

One of the reasons EFT is so successful is that it connects and directs couples to the attachment resources that are lost in insecurity of a distress relationship. EFT provides therapists with a clear model and practices that use emotion to transform a couple’s ability to initiate and respond to one another with greater security and confidence.

Watch James Furrow, PhD, EFT expert, trainer and co-author with Dr. Susan Johnson, Becoming an EFT Therapist: The Workbook as he shows you easy to master techniques that can:

  • explore and deepen emotion with clients in a way that maintains safety
  • guide the couple away from conflict deadlock into new bonding interactions
  • find new levels of intimacy as partners gain confidence and experience risking vulnerability together

Lead couples to deeper levels of connection through EFT’s model of change. EFT practices provide a reliable guide to enable couples to face their distressed relationship and together find healing and hope in the love they seek.

There’s never been a better way to make EFT accessible to you and your clients!
