Everyone needs to experience a secure bond with another. This bond provides us a safe haven where we can find comfort and support and a secure base to go out into the world. This is a universal yearning that is wired into to us as humans. To be connected is to be stronger and more resilient without feeling immature or weak or too needy. A secure sense of being loved is empowering. When someone has our back we can explore new possibilities, use our courage to ask for what we want and need and deepen our compassion for our self and partner. Together we can find the secure bond, fun, love and caring that has been masked by your conflicts and lost in the distance between you.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a proven effective treatment for distressed couples. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. Through the use of EFT, we will focus on strengthening or restoring your loving connection with your partner, increasing your experience of safety, comfort, belonging, and acceptance with each other. As you begin to experience new cycles of interaction, you'll feel increasingly confident in how much you matter to each other, your ability to lovingly work together to face future challenges and cope with stressors in your life.
