Emotionally Focused

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a type of psychotherapy that emphasizes the importance of emotional bonding in intimate relationships. EFT is based on the idea that the quality of our relationships plays a significant role in our overall emotional well-being, and that a lack of emotional connection and security in relationships can lead to distress and dysfunction.

EFT was originally developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and Dr. Les Greenberg in the 1980s as a way to help couples improve their relationships. It has since been expanded to include work with individuals, families, and groups.

EFT is grounded in attachment theory, which suggests that our early experiences with caregivers shape our sense of self and our ability to form healthy relationships throughout our lives. EFT aims to help individuals and couples identify and change negative patterns of interaction that may be interfering with emotional connection and security in their relationships.

EFT typically involves several phases of therapy. In the initial phase, the therapist works with the individual or couple to identify the negative patterns of interaction that are causing emotional distress. The therapist then helps the individual or couple to express their emotions and needs more effectively, and to develop new ways of interacting that foster emotional connection and security.

EFT is an experiential therapy, meaning that it involves active engagement and participation by both the therapist and the client. EFT therapists may use a range of techniques, including role-playing, visualization, and guided imagery, to help clients explore and process their emotions.

Research has shown that EFT is an effective treatment for a range of relationship issues, including couples conflict, infidelity, and emotional disconnection. EFT has also been found to be effective in treating individuals with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Overall, EFT is a compassionate and effective approach to helping individuals and couples build more satisfying and secure relationships.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
