Welcome to the New Zealand Community of
Emotionally Focused Therapy

EFT – Emotionally Focused Therapy – for couples is one of the fastest growing models for couples therapy and marriage counseling available today!

Emotionally Focused Therapy can help:

  • Diffuse conflict, reduce ongoing tensions
  • Feel closer and more connected to your partner
  • Develop healthier, more satisfying communication
  • Improve emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy
  • Resolve old problematic issues in your relationship

Goals of Emotionally Focused Therapy

  • To expand and re-organise key emotional responses – the music of the attachment dance.
  • To create a shift in partner’s inter-actional positions and initiate new cycles of interaction.
  • To foster the creation of a secure bond between partners.

Why choose EFT

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is based on the observation that our most important relationships can trigger strong feelings. These relationships are a source of immense stress and pain, as well as great comfort and happiness. EFT helps couples learn to express and manage these feelings in a safe and positive way.

EFT will help you understand your needs in your relationship and help you respond to your partner’s needs, and your partner respond to yours. In EFT you learn about the moments when you hurt each other in your relationship dance, and how to keep your emotional balance in these moments. Then EFT will show you how to come close and express your softer feelings and needs to your partner in a way that helps your partner respond to you. This will help you to build a secure and lasting bond within your relationship, creating closeness, trust and connection.
