Emotion Focused Therapy

EFT is an empirically supported humanistic treatment that views emotions as centrally important in the experience of self, in adaptive functioning and in clinical, lasting change. It has evolved in recent years to have a significant impact on the field of psychotherapy.  The main focus of EFT is the development of a supportive therapeutic relationship and the accessing and processing of emotions, which helps in creating new understanding and beliefs about the self, others and the world. With the help of the therapist's empathic understanding and the use of experiential methods, clients learn how to make healthy contact with feelings, memories, thoughts, and physical sensations that have been ignored or feared and avoided.

If you have:

  • difficulty with very intense, overwhelming emotions, or

  • more often suppressing emotions and feeling ‘not much’, or

  • often feel confused by your own emotions and/ or stuck

  • if you want to tap into the guiding wisdom of your natural emotions, or

  • want to harness the power of emotions to make a positive change, and

  • want to feel better about yourself and feel emotionally closer to loved ones ...

then Emotion Focused Therapy might be for you.
