What is EFT?

Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, or EFT, is an evidence-based approach developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and Dr. Les Greenberg in the early 1980s. Using research gathered from 30 years of experience working with couples, they formed a comprehensive view of adult attachment and its role in romantic relationships. Their work provides a clear understanding of the bonds of love and how these bonds can be shaped to create more satisfying, loving relationships.

For couples looking to strengthen their relationship, EFT offers a unique way of focusing on each individual’s emotional experience as well as working on what happens between you and your partner in your day to day interactions with each other.

EFT therapists are supported by extensive research demonstrating that 86 to 90% of couples undertaking a course of EFT report substantial improvement and 70 to 75% of couples recover from their distress. Clinicians rely on their in-depth training and clinical experience to help you identify the negative themes that play out in your relationship, and how they can be changed to achieve more satisfying outcomes.
