Emotion Focused Therapy
EFT is a therapeutic approach based on the premise that our personal identities are deeply tied to our emotions. As such, EFT places emotions at the core of the therapeutic work.
It helps individuals understand how their emotional experiences may have been influenced by past experiences, and then facilitates the uninhibited expression of emotion in the present moment during session.
It increases emotional comfort and awareness, improves the ability to regulate emotions, and transforms emotional experiences into ones that are more adaptive.
EFT helps individuals better understand their emotional patterns and reduce emotionally-avoidant behavior, ultimately guiding them toward living a more genuine, open, and connected life.
