Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

EFT is a structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's and has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand our understanding about what is happening in couple relationships and to guide therapists.

Strengths of Emotionally Focused Therapy 

  • EFT is based on clear, explicit conceptualizations of marital distress and adult love. These conceptualizations are supported by empirical research on the nature of marital distress and adult attachment.

  • EFT is collaborative and respectful of clients combining experiential Rogerian techniques with structural systemic interventions. 

  • Change strategies and interventions are specified. 

  • Key moves and moments in the change process have been mapped into nine steps and three change events. 

  • EFT has been validated by over 20 years of empirical research. There is also research on the change processes and predictors of success. 

  • EFT has been applied to many different kinds of problems and populations.
