Couples therapy is a very effective way to help each other improve communication, understand one another and help to uncover and resolve any subtle, unspoken and unidentified problems which creates tension, anger, frustration and can lead to disconnect in a relationship.
When a relationship lacks intimacy and connection, new methods of communication needs to be explored to develop a solid foundation of friendship, trust, conflict resolution and collaboration. This forms new pathways to co-create a meaningful, beautiful and loving partnership together.
Through various approaches, systems and treatment methodologies, couples will learn practical skills to improve the relationship and help manage conflict in a positive way.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
This approach to seeing relationships – as an attachment bond – and shaping more loving relationships is leading the couple relationship field into a new understanding of romantic love. We now have a map to the territory called love and we can empower couples by showing them new systematic ways to take control of dances of disconnection and conflict and, even more important, help each other move into the open close embrace that is a secure loving bond.
EFT is based on 50 years of research into human bonding and 30 years of research from the labs of Dr. Sue Johnson into helping couples connect and thrive. We really don’t have to simply fall in and out of love anymore. Of course, EFT also helps families who are in distress and individuals who want to understand how they connect with others and how best to deal with their needs for support from others.
Roseanne C. Trapani uses the Emotional Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples get unstuck, build healthier relationships and to experience a secure bond with one another. A secure bond between a partner is where they trust the other to provide a safe space to allow vulnerability to talk openly.
