More on Emotional Focused Couples Therapy 

As an emotionally focused couples therapist, I believe that the key to a happy and healthy relationship lies in the emotional connection between partners. In emotionally focused couples therapy, the focus is on helping couples understand and improve their emotional bond, which in turn can lead to a more satisfying and fulfilling relationship.

The first step in emotionally focused couples therapy is to establish a safe and supportive environment where both partners can express their thoughts and feelings openly and honestly. From there, we work together to identify the negative patterns and behaviors that are driving a wedge between the couple and causing distress.

Through guided exercises and interventions, I help couples to recognize and understand their emotions, and to communicate them effectively to one another. We explore the deeper underlying feelings and needs that may be fueling conflicts, and work to address them in a way that promotes understanding, empathy, and connection.

One of the key principles of emotionally focused couples therapy is that each partner is responsible for their own emotions, and that it is the couple's responsibility to create a safe and supportive environment in which both partners can feel heard and validated.

Through the use of empathy, active listening, and validation, I help couples to develop a stronger emotional bond and a deeper sense of intimacy. By focusing on the emotional connection between partners, emotionally focused couples therapy can help couples to build a stronger foundation for their relationship and create a more satisfying and fulfilling life together
