No matter how much you talk to your partner, there will be times where you can’t see eye to eye. You fight, then you try to make up, but the argument is never truly settled. You love this person, more than anything, but no matter what you do, you just can’t connect, and you end up feeling helpless. There is hope. EFT, which stands for “emotionally-focused therapy” can be the answer for many couples. Here’s what EFT therapy in Atwater Village is and how it works.
EFT Therapy in Atwater Village
Emotionally focused therapy focuses on understanding the couples’ negative cycles and/or interactional dances in their relationship. This isn’t a new treatment modality, as it’s been around since 1980. EFT treatment has been proven to help couples grow stronger and secure adults. In my years of practice, I’ve helped couples move towards a better understanding of each other’s emotions and needs. Indeed, statistics have shown that “70 – 75%” of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. Those improvements are possible in your relationship, too.
Thoughts, Action Tendencies/Behaviors and More…
In every relationship, partners will set off negative responses from one another. In EFT, I help couples increase their insight into their thoughts, perceptions, action tendencies/behaviors that lead to negative interactional dances. I will help couples become aware of their secondary and primary emotions along with their attachment longings and needs in the relationship. As a result, couples learn to step back from the negative cycles they get stuck in and begin creating healthier and secure ways of communicating and connecting by expressing their emotions and needs in the relationship.
Connection over Disconnection
Through EFT therapy, I have seen and helped many couples attain secure attachment by expressing their emotions and needs to their partners. If you’re feeling disconnected from your partner, don’t hesitate to give me a call at (323) 487-9003 and I’d be happy to help.
