About this Service

We will help you with any emotional struggle and difficulties in your everyday life to restore your hope, confidence, enjoyment in life and faith in yourself. Helping Your RELATIONSHIP : “Can my partner and I move from feeling hopeless and despairing to becoming hopeful, close and loving again?” Here at the EFT Clinic, we help couples reconnect, find hope and heal. Helping Your Family: “Our harsh and relentless conflicts destroy the very fabric of the family life…” We will be your skillful guides in helping you to learn positive discussions and resolve differences in a loving and forgiving way Built into Emotionally Focused Therapy approach is the science of human connection, how we reach for others and seek a Safe Haven and Secure Base with those most significant to us. Unique to EFT is identifying the “negative cycle” associated with personal distress. The cycle often includes repetitive arguing with no resolution, painful personal attacks on each other and unbearable periods of withdrawal and silence (“Find a Bad Guy” or “Freeze and Flee” cycle), or on a personal level easily triggered anger, anxiety or plunging into the ‘darkness’ of depression. The Process: Couples and families are quickly relieved to learn in the 1st session that their “enemy” is the cycle, not each other! They learn that by understanding and defeating the cycle they can begin restoring their loving connection. Individuals learn to regulate their own internal ‘cycle of distress’ and sense of failure and self-criticism triggered by their personal history, stress or negative view of self. EFT model avoids blame by focusing on the unhelpful negative patterns of interaction and each person’s positive desire to improve their life and to make your relationship safer. The Results: A history of success: After a course of therapy, 70 to 75% of people move from distress to recovery; 90% show significant improvement.
