RESOURCES FOR EFT COUPLES THERAPY

EFT Couples Therapy

What is EFT?

The ICEEFT was founded in 1998 by Dr. Sue Johnson and her colleagues in Ottawa, Canada. The Centre offers educational courses and training to mental health professionals. 

EFT is a well-known humanistic approach to psychotherapy formulated in the 1980’s and developed in tandem with the science of adult attachment, a profound developmental theory of personality and intimate relationships

As an EFT couples therapist my work focuses most on the science of attachment in adults...

…and where it affects our ability to remain connected in our relationships. The work originated by Dr. Sue Johnson, author of, “Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.” 

To learn more about EFT couples therapy and if it’s the right model for you feel free to visit: ICEEFT: What is “Hold Me Tight”?

The bestselling author of Hold Me Tight presents a revolutionary new understanding of why and how we love, based on cutting-edge research.

Every day, we hear of relationships failing and questions of whether humans are meant to be monogamous. Love Sense presents new scientific evidence that tells us that humans are meant to mate for life. Dr. Johnson explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our ‘love sense’ — our ability to develop long-lasting relationships.

Emotionall Focused Therapy (EFT) with Individuals, Couples, and Families.

Drawing on cutting-edge research on adult attachment–and providing an innovative roadmap for clinical practice–Susan M. Johnson argues that psychotherapy is most effective when it focuses on the healing power of emotional connection. 

The primary developer of emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples, Johnson now extends her attachment-based approach to individuals and families. The volume shows how EFT aligns perfectly with attachment theory as it provides proven techniques for treating anxiety, depression, and relationship problems.
