Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has been shown by research to be a highly effective form of therapy. The emphasis is on building stronger, closer bonds between partners that make possible lasting change.|
Couples generally come into therapy for one of two reasons:
These destructive cycles can begin to take on a life of their own. Help is needed to interrupt the cycle and put the relationship back on track.
Some couples find themselves caught in a cycle of conflict that never gets resolved. The more each person tries to make their point of view understood by their partner, the less each feels heard. As time goes on, the cycle escalates and the distance between them becomes greater and greater. They begin to wonder if there is any hope for their relationship.
Other couples go through the motions of life together. They share household chores, work out financial decisions, and rarely argue. However, their relationship feels stagnant and boring. There is little vitality and emotional intimacy. Sometimes, even the sexual intimacy has dwindled away. They begin to wonder if there is any hope for their relationship.
The process of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is designed to be short-term and powerful. If you have any questions, or if you feel your relationship would benefit from this process, please give me a call at 530-756-5525.
