Emotional Focused Couples Therapy

Emotional Focused Couples Therapy(EFT) is a structured and empiracally researched approach to couples therapy formulated in the 1980's by Dr Sue Johnson. It has developed alongside the science on adult attachment and bonding to expand our understanding about what is happening in couple relationships. for more info visit: More info about Ferana Goga

The idea is that we all need to connect and be nurtured but we also haves fears which then develop into the cycles we get stuck into. By working and exploring the emotion, we can stop or reduce the effect of the cycle and create a secure attachment bond and relate from their rather than an attachment distress which is evident in the cycle. It include Humanistic/Experiential and systemic Theories of change.

This is the basis of my work in my weekly sessions while Encounter centred couples Transformation is the basis of my 2 day intensives (while I integrate them both in both offerings). For a general overview, visit my Home page or my Couples Therapy page.

A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists.
