EFT marriage counseling has proven its effectiveness and offers you insights into your behavioral patterns
It’s not the partners themselves, but these interactive negative patterns that are so often the cause of problems within the relationship. By choosing EFT therapy for couples, you get invaluable insights into those patterns and learn to develop positive interaction patterns. We have translated the EFT method into an online program that helps you and your partner improve your relationship.
We are not meant to be alone or to stay alone
EFT stands for Emotionally Focused Therapy. The now world-renowned Canadian therapist, Sue Johnson, developed the method. She spent years researching married couples with relationship problems, relationship communication and trust issues. She then sought an effective way to restore and improve the lost connection that has arisen. And all her lifelong insights come together in EFT Couples Therapy. It’s perhaps handy to know that EFT is based on so-called attachment theory. This theory assumes that no one is made to be alone and stay alone. Everyone needs a partner to whom they can attach themselves emotionally. If they do, people can handle a lot more in life, function and much better, and have more confidence and self-confidence. In a few cases people have a fear of commitment, do you want to learn how to deal with Fear of commitment?
Emotions and your relationship: a guide to your needs
Everyone who is or has been in a relationship knows that emotions can sometimes get the upper hand in a relationship. With EFT Relationship Therapy, you learn how to handle these emotions appropriately. Emotions serve as an invitation to learn to understand each other better. When people are angry and express that anger, there is usually pain beneath it. With EFT Relationship Therapy you become aware that this pain may be an indication of a specific unmet need you have. You learn to express that need to your partner. They can then offer you comfort, be a shoulder to cry on or reassure you. However, this won’t work if your partner shows anger all the time. We can help you create a safe environment in which to be vulnerable and express yourself better.
The negative interaction pattern behind relationship problems
In principle, the EFT Couples Therapy method is primarily about uncovering and recognizing the negative interaction patterns that have crept into your relationship. It’s precisely this pattern, or way of acting, that has become the dominant factor in marriage problems and bad relationship communication. EFT Relationship Therapy helps you to improve your relationship and examine the pattern you and your partner share. And helps you see that it is the ingrained pattern that is the culprit behind your relationship problems. And when a couple can’t escape this negative interaction, it can cause a break-up.
Having understood your joint pattern you can hold up a mirror to yourself
Only once that insight is there, will there be room to learn to interact differently. When we’re unaware of our behavioral patterns, we sometimes unintentionally hurt each other. Having understood the relationship pattern, you can hold up a mirror to yourself and see much better what you need to do to communicate in a more effective way. Your partner will also notice this and interact differently. This will create a safe space for (renewed) connection.
Learn to indicate and express what you specifically feel and need
By choosing EFT Relationship Therapy, a stronger foundation can be laid under the relationship. In practice, after applying EFT relationship therapy, there are fewer trust issues between partners. You also learn to indicate and express better precisely what you feel and need. You will learn to express your needs without tiptoeing around topics or walking on eggshells to avoid a negative reaction. After following EFT couples therapy you will feel a restored connection with your partner again.
How to avoid a breakup or divorce
Therapists agree that many apparently failing relationships can still be saved, even when you think the love has gone. Someone wanting to follow EFT Relationship Therapy must still feel 'something' for the other person: there must still be a spark, a flame. Moreover, both parties must have a willingness to try to save the relationship. And you and your partner should both be prepared to put in the hard work to revitalize your relationship.
End of relationship signs
The main problem in many relationships is that partners no longer know how to get through to the other person. Partners no longer seem accessible and certainly no longer receptive to the other person. Partners avoid making contact with each other, fearful of the other's reaction. This creates a form of alienation: the interaction pattern becomes increasingly negative, creating a constant tension. You may even start to feel unsafe. Or at least you no longer feel connected with your partner and the relationship seems to be at a dead-end. You are stuck. this are the signs you relationship is over.
The patterns can reemerge in a new relationship
People who decide to divorce and later start up with someone else will usually have to deal with such a situation again in their new relationship. Sometimes couples wat to know if a time-out in your relationship is a smart move. The underlying problem doesn’t just disappear or go away. So it’s quite likely the negative interaction patterns will reemerge in the new relationship, the old problems start up again and the new relationship eventually also hit a dead-end.
Addressing the pattern during EFT Couples Therapy

But that somewhere in the relationship, a subconscious negative interaction pattern has emerged to undermine happiness, love and connection. This pattern is a serious threat to the continuation of the relationship. EFT doesn’t so much deal with you as partners, but with the pattern.
