Emotion Focused Therapy

Emotion-focused Therapy (EFT) focuses on emotions and the way we deal with them. It also puts emphasis on the self and the importance of past relationships. EFT is based on the idea that many mental and physical health concerns are caused by avoiding emotions and pretending that everything is okay, or by not getting our emotional needs met.EFT helps individuals resolve unpleasant emotions by working with these emotions instead of suppressing them. It uses the unpleasant emotions as a source of information. EFT focuses on how you experience problems and what they trigger you to do as a way of coping with your emotions.EFT is especially effective for treating symptoms of moderate depression, the effects of childhood deprivation or abuse, interpersonal problems, couples and relationship difficulties.
