"Attachment science is the most complete way of understanding who we are as human beings and how bonds with others define us from the cradle to the grave."
Dr. Sue Johnson -
Emotionally Focused Therapy's (EFT) premise is that relationships, emotions, and experiences are guides towards wellness. While EFT can be used for couples therapy, it is much more. Utilizing the groundbreaking work of Dr. Sue Johnson, therapy will focus on our attachment styles as individual adults. EFT's focus is creating positive bonding experiences that calms our brains and heals our hearts.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is known as a short term therapy which combines experiential, systemic, and attachment based theories. With more than forty years of evidenced based research, EFT is said to be outperforming traditional talk therapies for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and trauma.
EFT's Dr. Sue Johnson:
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is foremost experiential and relational in nature. The therapeutic relationship serves as a guide by attuning to the client's emotions and experiences of maladaptive or adaptive attachment. The client is viewed as an expert that will learn to identify their current emotional state and develop compassion to help aid with individual choices and decision making. A felt sense of wellbeing will be the result of adaptive bonding and secure attachment.
