Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a type of counselling that aims to expand, reorganize, and manage emotional responses. It was originally developed for couples therapy, but was found to be effective between family members as well. EFT creates secure and lasting bonds between partners and family members, by encouraging them to express and understand each other’s inner emotions, while striving to reinforce the positive bonds that already exist.  Through this exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, clients can identify their individual role and the effect they have on the dynamics of the relationship. In these sessions, each participant is encouraged to express their experiences and emotions, in a safe and non-judgmental  environment. Clients often experience these sessions as uplifting, enabling them to move on to develop more productive and collaborative behaviors.
