What is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFCT)?

EFT is an experiential therapy that looks at your relationship as a system and a primary emotional attachment bond. It is a well-researched scientific model of romantic relationships (Johnson, 2019). It has been validated by outcome research (Wiebe & Johnson, 2016) to provide evidence that it  successfully helps couples repair relationship distress and improve relationship satisfaction with long-term success. EFT has a 75% success rate. 90% of those who don’t complete the full process, report an improvement in their relationship. EFT has three parts: 

  1. de-escalating your negative distancing cycle; 
  2. restructuring your bond; 
  3. 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 simple and empowering way of reframing how you relate, so that you feed the positive cycle of connection in your relationship. Rather than the negative cycle. NVC leads to a continual deepening of emotional intimacy and connection. It starts by helping you make sense of yourself every day, interaction by interaction. It guides you to truly understand your partner. It also teaches you how to build trust for each other.

With NVC you learn to clearly hear and respond to your own deeper needs and those of others. Through its emphasis on deep empathic listening—to yourself as well as others—NVC helps you bring compassion into your relationship.

Even if only one of you learns NVC, it can help you have better interactions.
