What is EFT?

Emotionally Focused Therapy

EFT is a Couples Therapy model that puts love and emotions central. The therapeutic model is based on the attachment theory combined with experiential/intrapsychic and systemic perspectives. EFT is scientifically based and proven effective (evidence based). Therapy begins with a question of improving the relationship by both partners and aims to improve the interaction and emotional connection within the couple.
