We create relationships from the inside out. When we want to change how our relationships are operating, it’s an inside job.

What is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFCT)?

EFT is an experiential humanistic model that integrates systems theory and attachment theory, a well-researched scientifc model of romantic relationships (Johnson, 2019). It has been validated by outcome research (Wiebe & Johnson, 2016) to successfully help couples repair relationship distress and improve relationship satisfaction with long term success. EFT has a 75% success rate and even those who don’t complete the process, 90% report an improvement in their relationship. EFT has three parts: 

  • de-escalating your negative distancing cycle; 
  • restructuring your bond; 
  • integrating your new positive cycle 

Years after completing this process couples report their relationship is increasingly loving and resilient. EFT is relevant for all relationships!

What is NVC?

NVC is the language of the positive cycle of connection. The continual deepening of emotional intimacy and connection. NVC starts by helping you make sense of yourself everyday, interaction by interaction. It guides you to truly understand your partner’s feelings and needs instead of your diagnosis or analysis of them. NVC teaches you how to provide a safe emotional place for each other and share in new ways.

With NVC we learn to hear our own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep empathic listening—to ourselves as well as others—NVC helps us discover the gift of compassion in relationship.

Even if you don’t both learn NVC, it can help you have better interactions.

The elements of NVC are simple, yet powerfully transformative.
