Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)
Do you find it hard to control your emotions? Do your emotions often dictate your response? Do you wish you had the techniques to harness your emotions and move forward with your life?
If you answered yes to any of the above, we encourage you to explore Emotion-Focused Therapy, or EFT.
EFT is an approach to therapy treatment based on the premise that our emotions are a key to our identity and a guide for decision making. When we lack awareness of our emotions or avoid unpleasant emotions, we are unable to use the information provided by these emotions.
EFT helps individuals to:
Become more aware of their emotions
Welcome, allow and regulate emotions
Describe emotions clearly and in detail
Evaluate whether the emotions are helpful or hurtful
Identify the source of unhelpful emotions
Develop alternative, healthy ways of coping with situations that often elicit hurtful emotions
Unlike other therapeutic approaches, EFT assumes that emotion can be a source of healing and works with specific emotions to increase adaptation.
If you are seeking help identifying, utilizing and processing your emotions, we encourage you to contact us today. Together, we’ll work on increasing awareness of emotions, separating useful from hurtful emotions and using healthy emotions to guide your action. Coping with emotions in healthier ways can help you have a more satisfying relationship with yourself and others.
