Dr. Sue Johnson’s upcoming book shows how EFT is the new approach to psychotherapy - with individuals, couples and families. Listen to her introduce the book.
Save Your Relationship
As an EFT therapist I am committed to helping clients and colleagues stand together for healing and safety during the increase in hate crimes and protests of white supremacy across the US. These activities are also reverberating in Canada with anti-immigrant and nationalist rallies. EFT therapists are committed to creating safe, secure bonds in couples, families and societies, and we decry the messages of hatred and white supremacy recently being advanced.
Many of our colleagues, clients and members of our communities have grown up as targets of different types of oppression, and expressions of hatred and protests are reopening old wounds. We work and pray for a society that attends to its most vulnerable, in our belief that this is what creates a safe and thriving community for all.
EFT Training and Therapy aims to cultivate a climate of inclusion, where all can feel safe, valued, and affirmed. We view love and meaningful secure connections with one another as a birthright to all human beings and strive to promote a more loving humanity and community for all. We hope for a world in which every person can embrace their universal human attachment needs and thrive without fear of persecution or marginalization as a result of gender expression, race, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, family structure, age, class, mental health, physical character or disability.
Here are two videos portraying examples of love at its best, in a diverse world:
The devotion and love between John and Bill as they built and nurtured their connection over a 57 year-relationship, from their initial meeting until Bills’ death is one powerful story of secure bond. Devotion: Relationship of John and Bill
In 2017 there was a devasting highway crash in western Canada where truck driver Jaskirat Singh Sidhu blew through a highway stop sign, killing 16 and injuring 13 on the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus. It is a tragic, powerful story of love at its best and the healing power of remorse. While there is no appropriate penalty in Canadian law for causing a tragedy of this magnitude, the response from one of the victim’s father to the driver’s guilty plea shows how expressed remorse and acknowledgement of responsibility can open the door to closure and forgiveness. That the driver has received sympathy and kindness from families touched by the tragedy also illustrates the universality of the human heart and our needs for compassion, care and understanding. Healing can come when we tap into these deepest needs and drives for connection.

Marriage or couples therapy can help you rediscover the love that brought you together.
You may be in a couple relationship that:
is filled with loneliness and silence
is full of arguing, blaming, withdrawing or distancing
is in constant conflict that never gets resolved
feels discouraging and hopeless
lacks affection and tender touch
feels like the two of you are strangers in the same house
seems like you can’t talk to each other anymore: where you and your partner don’t feel heard or understood
has lost the spark that brought you together
is lacking in sexual intimacy
longs for closeness with one another again…
If you are feeling lonely, depressed or anxious because of relationship problems, you are not alone. If your relationship is stuck in a rut of conflict, sadness, distance and frustration, you know how heavily this weighs on your entire life.

Marriage and Couples Therapy that Works!
I am a registered marriage and family therapist who has enjoyed practicing couples and marriage therapy for 20 years. I use an approach that has been rigorously researched and found to be one of the most effective approaches to couples therapy. It is known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
A meta-analysis (analysis of several studies) in 1999 found that 73% of couples treated with EFT recovered from their distress and 86% made significant improvements in their relationship.
