What is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)?


I specialise in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), a concise method to support troubled relationships.

EFT, rooted in attachment theory, offers a holistic understanding of adult love and provides a structured path to not only reducing conflicts but also healing fractured attachment bonds. It aims to establish a lasting, secure emotional connection between partners.

EFT recognises that relationship distress arises from threats to fundamental needs for safety, security, and intimacy. It acknowledges couples’ tendencies to either overreact or withdraw into emotional isolation. These patterns perpetuate a cycle of hurt and disconnection.

EFT harnesses the potency of emotions to facilitate change, guiding partners to reshape their emotional responses and break free from negative interactional patterns.

By fostering vulnerability and fostering trust through shared emotional experiences, EFT helps reestablish meaningful connections between partners.

Extensive research underscores the effectiveness of EFT. Studies indicate that 70-75% of couples transition from distress to recovery, and approximately 90% experience notable improvements. If you are facing issues in your relationship, please feel free to reach out to me. I see my clients globally, online, and in my office in Hove.
