Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short term (8-20 sessions), structured approach to individual, couples and family therapy. Developed by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg, EFT helps clients change distressful or unwanted emotional states by increasing client’s ability to manage and express emotions. Clients undergoing EFT are helped to better identify, experience, explore, make sense of, transform and flexibly manage their emotional experiences. A central component to EFT focuses on helping clients to express their emotions in a way that allows for positive responses from the people around them.
