Emotionally Focused Therapy
The science of love and relationships is ushering in a new era for couple and family therapy. Based on the neuroscience of adult love, EFT is validated by 30 years of scientific research.
EFT is a short-term, structured and tested approach to reduce stress in adult love relationships and create more secure attachment bonds. It is also used with families.
Formulated in the 1980s EFT is growing in popularity across North America and internationally.
Research studies find that more than 70% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements.
