Emotionally Focused Therapy in Brookswood, Langley

Emotion-focused therapy(EFT) is a therapeutic approach based on the belief that our emotions are related, and fundamental to our identity. Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson), relates “emotionally focused therapy is based on the believe our emotions influence our thoughts and the choices we make”. “Emotions are like the word “E-motion”. Emotions animate, direct and energize our behaviour.”

EFT also assumes if you lack awareness of your emotions or are avoidant of emotions that feel hurtful or uncomfortable, it is a significant disadvantage to us when we cannot access important information that comes from these emotions. This disadvantage is highlighted in relationships where emotions always play a significant role. In EFT there are discussions of primary and secondary emotions. Secondary emotions are emotions about emotions. Like, feeling ashamed of crying because of grief or afraid of feeling angry. Unless the primary emotions is addressed the secondary emotion will not be resolved. EFT has lead the way in many very important studies about the importance and value of emotions in our lives and how working effectively attuning, tracking and processing emotions can help lead to a resolution of unpleasant and intrusive emotional experiences.
