The Struggle for Connection and Understanding
You love your partner and you can’t imagine your life without them but lately, you have been feeling disconnected and alone. Further, you want to have a connection with them and a loving bond but unsure how to turn to them. You miss the connection you had and you are longing to be comforted and nurtured by your partner. And the lack of connection is causing major communication breakdowns or fights that make you cry and feel even more isolated. This makes you think that the problem is your communication but that is not correct. The issue is a lack of emotional connection which is causing the communication problems. This is where Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy can help!
Understanding Your Communication Patterns in Relationships
When you and your partner fight or get stuck in communicating, you are stuck in your negative pattern of communication. Usually, one partner pushes for communication and resolve, while the other shuts down and withdraws. If you are the pursuer or the one who pushes for communication, this leaves you feeling anxious, alone and rejected. It makes you feel like your partner doesn’t care. On the other hand, your withdrawing partner has very good reasons for shutting down. He/she doesn’t want to make things worse, he/she needs to calm down and think, or they are protecting themselves from getting hurt. But to you, it may seem like they don’t care about you. This is your dance. This is what EFT calls your negative pattern of communication.
The Process of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
In EFT couples therapy, we will work on your dance by slowing things down and helping each of you see what you do in the pattern, how it makes you feel when it happens, and then how to step out of it and communicate with each other in a better way. In session, you will practice turning toward each other and expressing your feelings in a more vulnerable way. For example, “When you shut down, I feel sad and alone because it makes me feel like you don’t care about me.” Your partner will respond, “I’m sorry it makes you feel sad and alone, I don’t shut down because I don’t care, I shut down because I don’t want to make things worse or get it wrong with you.” Couples experience an emotional shift in their relationship after these exchanges. It slowly starts to rebuild the emotional connection between partners.
The Goals and Effectiveness of EFT Couples Therapy
In EFT couples therapy, we get to the heart of the matter. It is a deep and emotional experience and the goal is to create a secure and loving bond with your partner, one that lasts. You will know for sure that you matter to your partner, that your partner will be there for you no matter what and that conflict is inevitable but you will be able to resolve the issue together. EFT couples therapy is evidence-based therapy and has been proven in research to make long-lasting changes in couples over the last 25 years. Additionally, EFT has changed the way I practice and I have worked with hundreds of couples and have seen amazing transformations. EFT couples therapy works!
