Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

Relationships are special. When we meet someone who can be that special friend our hearts and souls light up. But our relationship, like everything of value, needs to be cared for and maintained.

Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (E.F.T.) is a gentle and up-building therapy to help couples recognize the negative cycles that could destroy love, and find new ways to love and care for one another.

We all know that babies and infants need secure attachment and connection. When that is not in place infants feel stressed and in their crisis they can protest. As adults we have the same need for bonding and connection. When we loose that connection with our partner, husband, wife, beloved, we too experience distress. Like the infant we protest. This protest may be expressed as anger, which is experienced by our partner as blame or criticism. Or it may be expressed by silence and withdrawal, which can be experienced by a partner as rejection.  This further widens the disconnection.

With Emotionally Focused Therapy you can both learn to reconnect to your deepest attachment longings for each other which at present are clouded over by the experience of disconnection and protest.

 Have you the courage to heal the hurt and love deeply again?
