What is EFT couple counselling?
EFT couple counselling is founded and developed by Sue Johnson. EFT is a well-known humanistic approach developed in tandem with the science of adult attachment, a profound developmental theory of personality and intimate relationships. Attachment theory views human beings as innately relational, social and wired for intimate bonding with others.
EFT stands for Emotionally Focused Therapy. In EFT we focus on emotion as they contain information about our sensations, how we are impacted and what we mean. When we can convey the meaning to ourselves, we not only become very clear on what we need and want for ourselves. By expressing this to our partner we also become very clear to him or her and provide an opportunity for him and her to respond to that.
