Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy
Emotionally focused couple therapy is a structured, shorter-term type of couples counselling, in which the therapist helps the couple to examine unhelpful habits of interacting with one another and replace them with more helpful interactions that will pull them closer as a couple and strengthen their connection. The role of emotions is at the centre of this therapeutic approach.
Emotionally focused couples therapy was developed in the 1980s and has been the subject of much research and is grounded in attachment theory, a long-standing psychological theory with considerable support. According to this theory, emotional engagement and responsiveness are essential to a secure bond in a relationship. Having this secure and safe emotional connection is a fundamental human need.
The aim of emotionally focused couples therapy, therefore, is to help couples to develop a trusting and secure space between them so that they can be themselves.
Call me for an appointment on 0431 483 017. Due to Coronavirus restrictions I am presently working with couples online. Even though being in the same room is ideal, I am finding that this form of counselling is working really well and I am achieving positive outcomes. If you would like to trial this for a 15 minute session I would be happy to provide this for you.
