Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), for couples therapy, looks at what is taking place within the relationship, the repetitive behavior patterns that the couple has become stuck in, and the unexpressed emotions and needs of each partner. It looks to identify what the behavior is really about: fear of rejection, fear of abandonment, and the longing for connection wired in all of us.
How Can EFT Help?
EFT teaches each partner how to be responsive to the needs of their partner by focusing on the underlying emotions and by identifying the repetitive, cyclic patterns in the relationship. The goal is for the couple to learn to work together to notice when their negative cycle is happening, step back from the ‘dance’ and begin to put new responses into place. It teaches couples how to talk to each other in new ways and create new ways of interacting.
