Welcome to the British Emotionally Focused Therapy Centre - BEFT. We support secure, resilient and successful couple and family relationships by enabling and promoting access to Emotionally Focused Therapy - EFT in Britain.
EFT, as developed by Dr Sue Johnson, is a collaborative, structured, usually short-term therapy approach to working with couples, families and individuals that fosters the creation of secure relationship bonds. EFT is a change process that facilitates movement from distress to recovery by transforming negative cycles of interaction into safe emotional connection between intimate partners and family members. Based on the science of emotions and attachment theory as well as humanistic and systemic theories, EFT has a high success rate in achieving secure, resilient relationships in couples and within families, and in helping individuals to flexibly manage their emotional experience.

"Romantic love is not the least bit illogical or random. It is the continuation of an ordered and wise recipe for survival. We now have a map that can guide us in creating, healing and sustaining love. This is a consummate breakthrough.” - Dr. Sue Johnson
On 25th August 2017 Sue Johnson received the Order of Canada. This is a huge honour that recognises her outstanding contribution in developing EFT and how it is making a major difference to Canada, and indeed the world.
