How do we change your couples dance via marriage counseling? 

We change your dance, by using the structured approach of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)- a model that promotes healthy and secure attachment within a marriage. 

About Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

  • EFT is based on explicit and clear conceptualizations of adult love and marital distress. These conceptualizations are backed by empirical research on the nature of adult attachment and marital despair. 
  • EFT is collaborative and has been applied to various issues and diverse populations.
  • With over 20 years of empirical research, EFT, has become THE preferred model in helping couples create a secure, resilient, and healthy bond.

Research on EFT

According to the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT), “a substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists. Research studies find that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements,” (ICEEFT, 2017).  

The research also states that “EFT is the only model of couple intervention that uses a systematic empirically validated theory of adult bonding as the basis for understanding and alleviating relationship problems,” (ICEEFT, 2017).
