Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFTC) is a well researched method of therapy for couples. Pioneered by Dr. Sue Johnson it is based upon a science of adult love and attachment. EFTC recognizes that couple conflict and distress arises from basic adult needs for safety, security and closeness not being met in their intimate relationships.
The process of EFTC helps to change the interactional patterns between a couple and provide a safe and effective path for long term relational healing.
Grainne, Kathy and James have recently trained in this method of couple work.
