What is Emotion-Focused Therapy?

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a therapeutic approach that centres on the importance of emotions in human experience and personal transformation. It aims to help individuals understand, regulate, and transform their emotions to improve mental health and well-being. By focusing on emotional experiences, EFT helps clients process and make sense of their emotions, fostering greater emotional awareness and healing.


How Emotion-Focused Therapy Can Help You

Emotion-Focused Therapy can help you by providing a deeper understanding of your emotions and how they influence your thoughts and behaviours. It encourages you to explore and express your feelings in a safe environment, helping to resolve emotional distress and improve relationships. EFT can lead to increased emotional regulation, enhanced self-awareness, and more adaptive emotional responses, promoting overall psychological well-being.


What an Emotion-Focused Therapy Session Might Look Like

In an Emotion-Focused Therapy session, your therapist will create a warm and empathetic environment, encouraging you to explore your emotional experiences. The session typically involves discussing recent events and your emotional reactions to them. Your therapist will help you identify and articulate your emotions, understand their origins, and explore their impact on your life. Through guided exercises and emotional processing, you will work together to transform negative emotional patterns and develop healthier emotional responses, leading to greater emotional resilience and well-being.
