Discover Relationships Filled with Healing and Growth

Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples - scientifically proven methods for richer, healthier relationships and deep neurological change.
shutterstock_106006154Healthy relationships are the key to our longevity, success and happiness. Yet many of us struggle with the ones we care about the most.

  • Do you feel more alone with your loved one than by yourself?
  • Do you and your partner have the same arguments over and over again with no solutions?
  • Do you feel unheard and unappreciated (like a broken record delivering the same message over and over again)?

We are hardwired to be in relationships, and yet we aren’t often given the tools to do it well.

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples is the answer. Studies show EFT to be effective in improving relationships 95% of the time. And the best news of all is that these changes are stable and lasting over time.

Each of us brings our own history, pain, fears and points of view into a relationship. We carry forward dysfunctional ways of communicating and relating to others. And we often find the way we communicate our needs actually sabotages our relationships.

The more we struggle to communicate with our partners, the more we may drive them away. We miss out on what we need the most – connection and intimacy. Arguments increase, the distance becomes wider, and we are caught in a cycle we don’t know how to stop.

Or maybe we go through a difficult or painful experience and when we reach out for our partner, they don’t answer. They may have been going through their own tough time or maybe they misunderstood what was needed, or they just didn’t know how to help.

But in the end, the pain of knowing that they weren’t there for us when we needed them most forms a wound. This is a wound that just won’t heal on it’s own. We call these attachment injuries.

With attachment injuries, the pain comes forward each time we try to get close. Over time we reach out to our partners less and less, creating a place inside of us that feels unworthy and unloved.

Heal and Connect for Rich, Satisfying Relationships

Emotion-Focused Therapy is designed to address these patterns and cycles. The process heals old wounds that keep adding up and when we begin to understand our partners cues, needs, and hidden pain, we begin to see them in a new light. They are no longer the enemy, but a soul in need of connection and comfort.

This process breaks down the walls of resistance and anger in all kinds of relationships and circumstances, including the pain of infidelity or addiction. Couples begin to reach for one another and voice their fears, hopes, dreams, hurts, and longings. They find they can move towards one another again with compassion and love because they:

  • Heal old wounds
  • Learn to effectively communicate their needs and wants
  • Begin to heal their relationship by supporting and honoring each other

When this happens, your relationship becomes the safe haven that it was meant to be, filled with intimacy, compassion and joy. EFT can equip you with the skills and tools to make this happen.
