There are many aspects of relationships that create confusion and disconnection. We begin to ask:
Are you really on my side?
Do I matter to you even when we disagree?
Can I turn to you for comfort and strength and still feel safe?
If I am hurting or fearful, will you show up consistently?
Do you value me for who I am, or only a part of me?
Can I be my real self with you and still be loved?
Are we in this together?
Can I really count on you when things get tough?
These questions are likely at the core of the struggle, discomfort, and disconnection you’re experiencing in your relationship.
All of us come into this world needing loving, secure relationships. The need for a protected emotional connection stays with us for a lifetime. When you fear that your partner isn’t there for you, that you don’t really matter, or that you can’t turn to them for comfort, your relationship can easily slip into negative patterns that reinforce your fears and create more distance.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) can help you get right to the heart of the matter-bringing back (or maybe finding for the first time) the true acceptance, belonging, comfort, and connection that you want to feel with your partner.
Emotionally Focused Therapy helps you heal from negative patterns and build secure bonds of love and trust. As this happens, you build confidence that you can truly count on each other. You both come to trust each other to “be there” during both the joyful and the difficult times.
EFT is based not only on solid research about connection and the nature of love, but also on research about helping people change the patterns in marriage and how to establish loving bonds.
Emotionally Focused Therapy can help you create a safe haven within your partner.
- Your relationship can become a place where each of you feels deeply valued.
- Both of you will learn to confidently turn to each other for comfort and strength
- You’ll gain a solid sense of partnership where you work together to address challenges.
- Your sense of true belonging will increase as your relationship becomes a place where you are unafraid to be yourself.
