EFT Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy is usually a short term (8–20 sessions), structured approach to couples therapy formulated in the early 80’s by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg. EFT is also used with families. A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of EFT now exists. Research studies find that 70–75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements. EFT is being used with many couples in private practice, university training centres, hospital clinics, and many different cultural groups throughout the world. These distressed couples include partners suffering from disorders such as depression, post traumatic stress disorders and chronic illness.
