What is Emotionally Focused Therapy?

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), is a form of therapy that strives to help individuals identify the underlying emotions that guide their relationships. The EFT approach was first developed by Susan Johnson and Les Greenberg in the 1980s, and it continues to become one of the most popular and effective ways to improve relationships.

The Center offers EFT supervision and training to therapy professionals in-person and online led by Clinical Director, Supervisor and Trainer, George Faller.

Who knew that four days could be so transformative? Under the masterful direction of George Faller, I was introduced to EFT, a powerful model that gets to “the heart” of the struggles many marriages face. EFT offers a way forward as it seeks to repair damaged ways of relating and unhelpful patterns of interacting. What is most exciting is that EFT offers real help, hope and healing for couples willing to engage in the process. It’s a tool I’m delighted to add to my tool box
