Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the "Gold" standard of couples therapy due over 30 years of extensive research and set standards of couple of therapy. 

Research has found that 70–75% of couples who undergo EFT no longer meet the criteria for relationship distress after treatment, and 90% show significant improvement.  EFT is considered one of the most effective approaches for resolving relationship distress. (Spengler, P. M., Lee, N. A., Wiebe, S. A., & Wittenborn, A. K., 2024)

EFT addresses the cycle of disconnect that distressed couples endure and explores the hurt and sadness that keep them stuck in securing the love they long for. So often this leads to feeling hurt, sad and alone in their most intimate relationships. These unresolved emotional wounds, often triggered by insignificant circumstances, result in quarrels or shutdown; further perpetuating the hurt feelings.  It is these raw wounds that prevent couples from truly being emotionally vulnerable with their partner so that they can experience the loving connection they so desperately desire.  

Distressed partners no longer see each other as their emotional safe haven. Our lover is supposed to be the one person we can count on who will always respond. Instead, unhappy partners feel emotionally deprived, rejected, even abandoned. In that light, couples’ conflicts assume their true meaning: they are frightened protests against eroding connection and a demand for emotional reengagement.” - Dr. Sue Johnson, (Founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy and ICEEFT)
