You would meet with an EFT therapist in a private room, where the therapist would help you to explore your difficulties, and gain an understanding of how you want your relationship to be, with a particular emphasis on identifying and changing the negative cycles that can be so painful and distressing for a couple. Sometimes, the therapist may also suggest some individual sessions early on in the process, in order to obtain a more detailed picture of each partner’s history and concerns.
EFT therapists are trained to have a clear and flexible map of how to help couples move towards safe, strong and loving relationships and will guide and support you through this process.
Sessions vary in length but are usually between 50 and 90 minutes. Cost will vary according to session length, training of the therapist, venue costs, locality etc, and would be discussed during the initial contact with the therapist. If the therapist has a website they may have their session costs on there.
