Emotionally Focused Therapy
for Couples & Individuals

Putting you in touch with trained professionals

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy helps you strengthen and deepen your relationship in a caring and supportive context, generating greater closeness, connection and intimacy.

Watch the clip below to hear how EFT Founder, Dr Sue Johnson, explains how you can evoke this mysterious thing called “love” just by talking in a new way – a deeper, more emotional way with each other.

Why choose EFT?

EFT is based on 20 years of validated studies on relationship distress and adult love. These ideas are supported by research into the nature of marital distress and adult bonding. It is collaborative and respectful of all clients and helps you create safe and supportive bonds. EFT has been shown to be effective for a variety of relationship problems and populations.

EFT is best known as a cutting edge, tested and proven couple intervention, but it is also used to address individual depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress (EFIT – Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy) and to repair family bonds (EFFT – Emotionally Focused Family Therapy).  

Interested in attending a couples workshop?

Hold Me Tight® is an intensive weekend workshop for couples designed around seven conversations based on the Hold Me Tight book by Dr. Sue Johnson. These conversations have been shown to be essential for successful, lasting relationships.
