Learning to Attune in Relationships
The art of couples counseling is to learn to attune and become contributors to the healing process of one another. In couples therapy, you will learn how to foster respect, affection, and closeness in your relationship. You will build and share a deeper emotional connection together. You will learn how to communicate in a better way by staying calm through conflict, changing your negative pattern of communication, and learning how to be there for each other.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and the art of this model is that it gets to the heart of the matter by helping couples not only be more open and trusting with one another but also to reach out to each other more effectively.
Addressing Core Relationship Questions
The art of EFT is that it addresses the core questions we wonder about in our relationship. Will my partner be there for me? Do I feel safe to be my fully authentic self? And will my partner be there for me when I need them the most? When couples argue or are in relationship distress, the answer to these questions is typically no. This causes partners to feel sad, alone and hurt. So partners often fight or withdraw. This is their negative pattern of communication. The power of EFT is that we focus on changing the pattern so that in times of conflict, couples can turn toward each other instead of away from each other. EFT is a highly effective and highly researched model of therapy and has been proven to make long-lasting changes in couples because it focuses on the emotional bond between partners.
Promoting Emotional Connection in Couples Counseling
EFT is about promoting emotional connection. It helps couples identify and express their emotions to each other in a safe therapeutic environment. As an EFT therapist, I will help you identify your feelings, and what happens when you get triggered in your negative pattern, and then help you express those feelings to your partner. For example, when you shut down and walk away from me, I feel sad and alone because it seems like you don’t care about me. We will focus on your negative pattern of communication and help you both see what you each do in the pattern, how it makes you feel when it happens, and then be able to step out of it and communicate to each other in a better way.
Building a Secure Attachment in Couples Counseling
EFT also focuses on building a secure attachment. In your sessions, you will learn how to reach for each other more effectively and learn how to be there in times of conflict and need. Instead of shutting down or withdrawing from your partner, you will turn toward each other and provide comfort, support, and love. This will create a secure and trusting bond between the two of you and will provide the key to a healthier and lasting relationship.
The Effectiveness of EFT
As you can see, EFT is a highly effective model of couples therapy because it addresses your core needs, promotes emotional connection by changing the negative pattern of communication and it focuses on building a secure attachment with your partner. I have worked with hundreds of couples and have helped them create a stronger connection together and long-lasting love!
