Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), developed by Susan Johnson, is a validated couple’s therapy with a reported 70-75% recovery rate. Couple or marriage counselling can reduce conflict, improve communication and lead to a more harmonious relationship.

In a distressed relationship, most couples have greater difficulty expressing their needs to one another, making it tougher to support each other and resolve conflicts. During marriage counselling, the relationship therapist will work to:

  • Create a safe haven for both partners to reveal their feelings and needs about past and present events
  • Facilitate active dialogue between the couple
  • Guide the partners to evaluate and revisit the feelings beneath their negative patterns
  • Enable conflict resolution and long-term solutions for a secure and happy relationship

The goal of EFT is to strengthen a relationship in order to create friendship, security, intimacy, and pleasure.

At Family-Therapy, our EFT relationship specialists are trained to meet every couple’s unique relationship needs and situations. They create a conducive environment for couples to air their grievances and find practical solutions that can help avoid future problems in their relationships. Our marriage counselling team in Ottawa is here to help you throughout your toughest times and rekindle the spark in the relationship. We recommend that you seek couples’ counselling, as soon as you start noticing the first signs of a troubled relationship.
