Emotional Focus Therapy (EFT)

Emotionally focused therapy is a short-term treatment option that believes that lacking emotional awareness or avoiding unpleasant emotions causes harm. Individuals, couples, and families can use EFT to create a more secure bond and develop trust in their relationships. Couples and families in distress may benefit from emotionally focused therapy. Clients coping with anger, loss of trust, or betrayal in their relationship are good candidates from EFT. The initial stages of treatment focus on helping the client become more aware of their emotions, and the therapist gives them techniques to identify them properly. The therapist helps determine which emotions are helpful and which emotions the client should consider changing. The client receives tools to transform unproductive feelings. The treatment takes anywhere from eight to twenty sessions.
